After a few drifts and turns, he activates his Charger R/T's nitrous and blasts ahead of Luis, taking the lead before getting the attention of the police, in their Ford Shelby GT500 police cars.
Despite the police forming a roadblock at a T-junction, Thiago easily drifts through them and continues the race.
Need for Speed: Nitro
Thiago is the "Top Racer" of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Thiago sits on the hood of his Dodge Charger R/T, while showing his excellent soccer skills as he attempts to flip and kick one of his sandals towards the screen, remarking his culture's affinity to soccer.
All his cars, except his Challenger SRT-8, can be unlocked for use in both Arcade Mode and Career Mode, once all stars are obtained in all his city's Bronze and Silver Cup events respectively.
- "Rule number one: You've got to be fast."
- "If you want to make a name for yourself on these streets, you've got to come through me first."
- Unlike his in-game counterpart, Thiago's Charger R/T in his profile video, the game's opening video, and the front part of the first tutorial video, is not equipped with a supercharger.
