The Terlingua appears in Shift 2: Unleashed as a reward car upon the player reaching Driver Level 11. It is featured as a Modern Road class car with a performance rating of C 760.
Need for Speed: World
Its acceleration is not as fast as the 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 but still on par with similarly rated A Class cars such as the BMW 1 Series M Coupé. The same counts for its top speed of 186 mph (300 km/h). Its nitrous boost on the other hand is average, and high-speed cornering is possible although its handling has a somewhat sluggish feeling.
The Terlingua is a decently performing A Class car for any game mode. It might be lacking when raced against more powerful and agile A Class cars with higher overall ratings like the Lamborghini Murciélago LP 640.
