The Chevrolet Bel Air Sport Coupe 265 V-8 is a second generation model in the Bel Air range manufactured by Chevrolet.

The second generation models of the Bel Air were outfitted with a new overall body style and a V8 engine option. The new models went into production from 1954 to 1957, and were replaced by the third generation models, which were only in production for a single year.

In 1956 the Bel Air received a face-lift with a wider front grille, two-tone bodyside treatments, and wheel openings. Popular Mechanics highlighted that only 7.4% of those that purchased the Bel Air did so with a seat belt option.[1]

Need for Speed: Payback

The Chevrolet Bel Air appeared in the reveal trailer for Need for Speed: Payback.


It is a derelict car that can be built after finding all five of its parts. The rumour as to the location of its first part is unlocked upon completing the Jess: Runner questline in chapter 3 - City Lights.

Upon all of its parts being found, it can be built into a drag, drift, off-road, race, or runner class car.

Finding the parts for all derelicts will allow for it to be purchased from either the drag, drift, off-road, race, or runner class dealerships, and purchasing the Speedcross Story Bundle will allow it to be purchased from the speedcross dealership.
