In pursuit events, it has less durability than heavier cars, but is capable of performing quick manoeuvres.
Before August 22, 2012, it was featured as a starter car and cost 20,000. Between January 8, 2013 and November 28, 2013, it could only be purchased with ingame cash at the beginning of a player's career.
