Need for Speed: The RunEdit
The Daytona Coupé appears in Need for Speed: The Run as a Tier 4 car, as the Tier 4 "NFS Edition" and as the Tier 5 "Carl Signature Edition".
The standard variant can be unlocked upon beating ten Autolog recommendations. The "NFS Edition" requires the player to beat twenty objectives in the Muscle Car Playlist. The Tier 5 variant is unlocked by receiving a bronze medal in every East Coast Express challenge.
The handling of both Tier 4 cars is rated as Challenging, while the handling of the Tier 5 variant is rated as Normal.
The standard variant is one of the quickest Tier 3 cars, as it is capable of a top speed of 180 mph (290 kmh). It also has the best acceleration time, although at the cost of handling.
The "NFS Edition" is also notable for its top speed, but performs averagely in terms of acceleration.
The top speed of the "Carl Signature Edition" may not be on a par with the fastest Tier 5 cars. This trait is compensated by its decent handling and quick acceleration.
- The Daytona Coupé is fitted with a five-speed gearbox in Need for Speed: World and lacks its side exhausts.
