Rear Spoilers (often shortened as Spoilers) are visual modifications that are fitted as wings on the rear of a vehicle, although they also function as aerodynamic improvements in some titles.

In Need for Speed: Underground and Need for Speed: Underground 2, spoilers increase the Star Rating of a car. Need for Speed: Most Wanted, Need for Speed: Carbon and Need for Speed: Undercover make it possible for the player to decrease their Heat Level after installing a spoiler on their car.

Performance alterations with spoilers were first introduced in Underground 2, which allowed the player to alter rear downforce settings. Similar implementations were reintroduced in Need for Speed: Pro Street and the Shift series.



  • Most titles also offer spoilers in carbon-fibre trim.
