‘Need for Speed: The Run’ Trailer by Michael Bay and PS3 Exclusive CarsPosted 9:55 pm on Monday, November 14th, 2011 by Jose Gutierrez III
Do you like insane explosions? Over-the-top crashes? Cool cars? Speed? Michael Bay? If you said yes to any of these, then I have a trailer for you. This one is directed by Michael Bay, and like any Michael Bay films, they have many of his trademark touches on this video. Also the PlayStation Blog released a list of cars exclusive to PS3. So for those that pre-ordered it for PS3, they’ll get the Lamborghini Aventador. They will also get seven PS3 exclusive supercars. PSBlog showed off two of the seven cars that are going to be part of the exclusives.
Coulter Mulligan, Community Manager for EA, described each cars:
Lexus enters the world of 200mph supercars with the LFA. Helping push it over the 200mph barrier is a 4.8L V10 and a carbon fiber frame to minimizing weight. The engine can go from idle to redline in 0.6 seconds, forcing Lexus engineers to use a digital display because the needle wasn’t fast enough. In Need for Speed The Run, hear what is described as “the roar of an angel” as the Lexus LFA battles it out with the fastest supercars in the world.
Porsche Carrera GT
With an engine originally designed to be an endurance racing prototype, the Porsche Carrera GT is a 200mph bullet. Production ran from 2004-2006, but the mid-engine V10 is hardly forgotten. Boasting 604hp, 15-inch brakes and an automated spoiler that adjusts above 70mph, the Carrera GT is as beautiful in its design as it is in its sound. In The Run, you’ll find yourself turning up the volume just so you can hear the incredible whine coming from the dual exhaust pipes.
Here is the complete list of cars:
- Bugatti Veyron Super Sport
- Hennessey Venom GT
- GUMPERT Apollo S
- Lamborghini Countach QV5000
- Koenigsegg Agera R
- Lexus LFA
- Porsche Carrera GT
