Games

Need for Speed: World

The Challenger R/T was added to Need for Speed: World on June 27, 2010 during the final beta test session as a tier 1 vehicle. Since August 22, 2012, it has an E class rating of 175, the lowest of any car in the game.

The Challenger R/T is the worst starter vehicle, since it has poor handling due to sluggish steering and weak acceleration. It also has a poor nitrous boost but makes it up with an average top speed of 131 mph (212 km/h).

Stock: 175 (E class) Maximum: 463 (C class)
