Unique Upgrades are special visual parts that grant higher Star Ratings than regular visual modifications and performance upgrades that can be stacked with standard upgrade packages.
Unique Upgrades are unlocked differently in the Need for Speed series:
- Need for Speed: Underground - Completion of Special Events
- Need for Speed: Underground 2 - Completion of Outrun Events
- Need for Speed: Most Wanted - Obtainable as markers after defeating a Blacklist racer
Unique performance parts are known as "Junkman" parts in Need for Speed: Most Wanted.
