Need For Speed in real life

By Mitchell TulkMitchell Tulk

We’ve all wondered what Need For Speed would be like in real life (haven't we?) and while we got a taste in 2014 with the movie, it didn’t exactly impress. 

Now a Russian YouTube channel, Chekunov V has attempted to bring Need For Speed (NFS) to the real world, but just as how people remember the game.

While the vid is only a minute long, it's sure to tickle your nostalgia bone.

Kicking off with the player choosing their car (Toyota Celica), they then go through the options for adding a bodykit, aftermarket wheels and paint job, before hitting the streets.

It’s just like in an actual Need For Speed game!

The video is even complete with accurate NFS special effects and graphics that are inspired by what were used in Underground 2, such as the speedo and NOS bar.

Does this make want you to break out the PS2 and replay Need For Speed? Let us know in the comments.
