Games

Need for Speed: Most Wanted

The Pontiac GTO appears in Need for Speed: Most Wanted and is unlocked after defeating Blacklist racer #10 Baron. It can be purchased for $35,000.

It has a a high kerb weight, making the car's handling sluggish and comparable to that of other large cars such as the Audi A4 3.2 FSI quattro and Cadillac CTS. It has excellent acceleration and a decent top speed, but its British equivalent - the Vauxhall Monaro VXR - has similar performance statistics as well as better handling.

The GTO's overall performance makes it similar to the Ford Mustang GT, although the Mustang is featured with better performance if both were equipped with Ultimate performance parts.

The GTO may be lacking during a later stage of the career mode, but is durable in pursuits due to its high weight.

The storyline character Rog is seen driving a red and black coloured Pontiac GTO at the beginning of the career mode.

Need for Speed: Carbon

The GTO appears in Need for Speed: Carbon as a tier 2 muscle class car.

It can be unlocked through gameplay, but can be unlocked early through purchasing a downloadable content pack; the Custom Car Bundle 1 pack.

Need for Speed: ProStreet

The Pontiac GTO appears in Need for Speed: ProStreet as a Tier 3 car that can be purchased for $28,000. It is unlocked upon dominating the Showdown: Chicago event.

The high stock horsepower and torque output of the engine allow the GTO to keep up with most Tier 3 rear-wheel drive cars such as the Toyota Supra.

If the player installs the best performance parts available in the game, the GTO's engine may produce 1,000 horsepower. As a result, it can become very competitive in both Drag and Drift events.

Players may also select a blue Pontiac GTO bonus car with a Grip blueprint in Race Day mode.
