Need for Speed: World
The Escort Mk1 RS1600 was made available in Need for Speed: World on November 2, 2012 as a C class vehicle.
The RS1600 is a competitive car in terms of handling because of a precise steering, low weight and outstanding grip performance. Nitrous boost and acceleration are average.
However, the RS1600 becomes notably slower in fifth gear. Another weakness of the RS1600 is its poor pursuit durability. Top speed is 185 mph (298 km/h).
