Need for Speed: ProStreet

The GT500 appears in Need for Speed: ProStreet as a tier 3 car with the price tag of $42,000. It becomes available for purchase at the car lot upon the player dominating the Showdown: Chicago race day event.

Its agile steering, quick acceleration, and low top speed makes it a great choice for drift and drag events. It may fall short in grip events as it won't be capable of keeping up with other vehicles such as the Lamborghini Murciélago LP 640.
