Need for Speed Carbon: Own the City

The GTO appears in Need for Speed Carbon: Own the City.

Need for Speed: ProStreet

The 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 GTO bonus car with a Grip blueprint in Race Day mode.
