Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2
The Carrera GT appears in Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 as the 2000 Carrera GT Concept Car. It is classified in the second highest performance tier in any version of the game and is restricted to racers only.
The car can be unlocked in the PlayStation 2 release after the player completes Championship event #26 - Point-to-Point Knockout. The NFS edition is unlocked upon earning a total of 3,500,000 NFS Points.
Other releases of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 require the player to earn 30,000 NFS Points to unlock the stock edition and 60,000 NFS Points for the NFS edition.
The Carrera GT has a superior handling compared to the Lamborghini Diablo VT 6.0 and Lamborghini Murciélago but worse acceleration as well as a lower top speed. Nevertheless, it is a better contender than the Porsche 911 Turbo in most Porsche events.
