The 1969 Dodge Charger R/T (Road and Track) was a sports model of the second generation B-body Charger. It came standard with a 440cu (7.2L) V8 although there was also an option for a 426cu (7.0L) Hemi V8.
Other standard features of the Charger R/T were two exhaust pipes, sport brakes and suspension as well as the bumblebee stripe on the rear fenders.
Need for Speed: Underground RivalsEdit
The 1969 Charger R/T first appeared in Need for Speed: Underground Rivals with a $44,000 price tag. It offers quick acceleration at the cost of some handling drawbacks.
A Boss version entitled - "Tank" - can be unlocked if the player races against it in a Cup level boss race using a Japanese car.
Need for Speed: CarbonEdit
The Charger R/T is one of the most powerful Tier 2 cars but suffers from heavy steering in corners. Thanks to a high kerb weight, it is also effective in pursuits.
Need for Speed: ProStreetEdit
The 1969 Charger R/T appears in Need for Speed: ProStreet as a Tier 2 vehicle with a $30,000 price tag.
It boasts powerful acceleration and excels at performing burnouts due to a torquey V8 engine. Because of a high weight, the Charger R/T has a sluggish steering feel around corners. It is best utilised in Drag mode although when fully upgraded, it becomes prone to performing wheelies, if given too much grip during a burnout.
Need for Speed: UndercoverEdit
The 1969 Charger R/T appears in Need for Speed: Undercover as a Tier 3 vehicle with a price tag of $89,000. It is unlocked upon reaching Wheelman Level 9.5. It appears in the PlayStation 2 and Nintendo Wii releases with a price tag of $29,000.
It is one of the quickest accelerating Tier 3 vehicles in the game - alongside the Chevrolet Chevelle SS - and reaches a top speed of 198 mph (319 km/h).
The Charger R/T is available as a blue die-cast bonus car which can be unlocked upon entering "qlcukc4bqm" at the secret codes menu. A variant with an alternative colour can be unlocked upon entering "osowsubc".
Need for Speed: ShiftEdit
The 1969 Charger R/T appears in the Team Racing Pack DLC pack for Need for Speed: Shift. It is a Tier 2 vehicle with a car rating of 5.10.
Quick acceleration and a decent top speed allow the Charger R/T to have good straight-line performance. However, it can easily spin out in corners as a consequence of its high weight.
Need for Speed: NitroEdit
The 1969 Charger R/T appears in Need for Speed: Nitro as a Class B car and costs $35,000. Brazilian top racer Thiago is seen driving this vehicle during the class B cup, which is unlocked after earning every star in Rio de Janeiro races.
Need for Speed: WorldEdit
The standard Charger R/T has a 188 overall rating and is currently retired from the car dealer.
In contrast to previous title appearances, the Charger R/T has poor acceleration coupled with stiff handling, causing the vehicle to understeer in corners and preventing it from compensating its cornering capabilities. It has a slightly stronger nitrous boost than the 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T at the expense of a lower top speed of 119 mph (195 km/h).
