Turbo is a type of Equipment used in Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010) by Racers.

Turbo gives the player an extra large amount of boost for a short period at the cost of handling and field of vision whilst making the player concentrate on the center of the screen. Turbo will not diminish the amount of Nitrous a player has.

The activation sound is a lot different compared to the nitrous activation noise. It sounds similar to a surging sound and is quickly followed by a loud jet thrust noise. The engine noises from the vehicle will also be considerably louder.

Turbo can not be deactivated after being triggered.


  • Turbo can help players regain lead positions once activated.
  • Turbo emits a green exhaust flame, instead of the regular blue colour of nitrous.
  • After using Turbo without crashing into anything, the player will be awarded with additional bounty.
  • If a racer activates their turbo system, the police dispatcher will say: "All units, we are detecting a power surge from the suspect. Be on guard."
  • Higher Turbo levels will decrease activation time and increase duration.
  • Nitrous can be built up whilst Turbo is being used.
  • The initial charge rate of turbo is much longer than any other type of racer equipment.
