Need for Speed: High Stakes
The Falcon XR8 appears in the Australian release of Need for Speed: High Stakes as a class A car with the price tag of $27,000 in the PC release or $22,000 in the PlayStation release. It can be purchased and modified in the career mode and is featured with a showcase.
The vehicle provides slower acceleration and top speed in the class, compensating with the best handling and braking capabilites. Once fully upgraded, it is capable to catch up with the strongest vehicles.
