Games

Motor City Online

The first generation Pontiac GTO appears in Motor City Online as the 1966 model year.

Need for Speed: ProStreet

The 1965 Pontiac GTO appears in Need for Speed: ProStreet as a tier 2 car. It can be acquired for $25,000 and is unlocked upon dominating the Showdown: Chicago event.

The car is capable of achieving low acceleration times due to having a torquey V8 engine. However, it is difficult to drive in corners like other classic muscle cars. It is best used in Drag events, as it can drive quarter mile times lower than 8 seconds.

Speed King Nate Denver drives a modified 1965 Pontiac GTO, which is classed as a tier 3 car. The player has to beat him to get his car.

Need for Speed: Undercover

The 1965 Pontiac GTO appears in Need for Speed: Undercover as a tier 4 car. It is purchasable for $32,000 and is unlocked once the player has reached Wheelman Level 2.5.

It is one of the fastest accelerating cars, although the Plymouth HEMI 'Cuda is somewhat quicker. It can drive up to 183 mph (294 km/h) top speed without upgrades.

Need for Speed: World

The Pontiac GTO '65 was made available in Need for Speed: World on January 27, 2011 as a tier 1 car. Since August 22, 2012, it has been featured as an E class car.

In comparison with any E class Dodge, the GTO has the best stock performance. However, it has a poor nitrous boost when compared to the rest of its class. The GTO turns slowly in corners and braking will be needed to negotiate most corners. Its greatest advantage is acceleration, which is as effective as seen on the Nissan Silvia (S15). Top speed is 134 mph (216 km/h).

Players may find the 1965 Pontiac GTO useful in Pursuit Outrun and Team Escape, because of its weight. The GTO is useless in technical race tracks, since it is focused on acceleration rather than handling.
