Need for Speed: World

The 1969 Charger R/T was made available in Need for Speed: World on July 27, 2010 as a tier 1 car. Since August 22, 2012, it has been featured as an E class vehicle.

The standard Charger R/T has a 188 overall rating and is currently retired from the car dealer.

In contrast to previous title appearances, the Charger R/T has poor acceleration coupled with stiff handling, causing the vehicle to understeer in corners and preventing it from compensating its cornering capabilities. It has a slightly stronger nitrous boost than the 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T at the expense of a lower top speed of 119 mph (195 km/h).
