This Video Brings Need For Speed Into The Real World

Need for Speed games are arguably the most iconic motoring-related gaming titles ever and this video brings gaming fantasy into the real world.

Filmed by a Youtuber on a Sony A7 III mirrorless camera, the video may only run for 1-minute but it incorporates many of the iconic images which gamers will associate with Need for Speed.

Viewers first visit the garage where the video proceeds to cycle through a number of different available cars. These include a Honda Integra Type R, Toyota Celica, Toyota Supra, and a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII, the latter two of which are locked. The Celica is ultimately selected and immediately modified with an aggressive bodykit and a set of Volk Rays TE37 wheels. A bright blue paint scheme is then applied.

The video becomes particularly interesting when the viewer jumps behind the wheel as the Celica has been filmed accelerating away from a camera, replicating the angle you’ll find in any racing game. A digital speedometer has also been included for added effect. Then, it is race time.

Lining up alongside the Celica is a Honda Integra Type S, Mazda RX-8, and a yellow Subaru WRX STI. The Subaru accelerates off the launch the quickest thanks to its potent all-wheel drive system. However, the Celica eventually catches up and beats the Subaru thanks to two potent shots of NOS.

If you ever played Need for Speed as a kid, we’re willing to bet that watching this clip will make you want to start playing again.
