The Need for Speed © 1996 Electronic Arts.

This is a true 'arcade simulation', and a must for racing fans.

Eight of the finest supercars ever built await your choice: Lamborghini Diablo; Ferrari 512TR; Dodge Viper; Porsche 911; Chevrolet Corvett; Acura NSX; Mazda RX7 and the Toyota Supra Turbo.

All the cars are modelled on actual performance statistics and are faithful in every aspect to their real-life counterparts - so you feel as though you're actually in the driving seat.

As well as racing against the clock, there's a computer opponent and a link-up mode. A total of 18 race segments over seven tracks are blessed with incredible, photo-realistic graphics, roaring sound and breathtaking pace. You'll certainly feel the need... the need for speed.
