The ultimate road car

I was inspired to do this car after seeing rata536's replacements for the other NFS3's vehicles, even asking him for the help on how to do a few of the elements.


  • 3134 poiles in total; with all LODs combined;
  • --1674 polies for high body;
  • --936 polies for medium body;
  • --512 polies for low body;
  • --12 polies for tiny body (colision);
  • 10 colors (official);
  • Sounds from NFS2 (thanks to rata536);
  • Multi-language support;
  • Showcase with full narration (thanks to G.L.97 for the audio files);
  • Alternate loading slide compatible with rata536 loading slides:

  • Car compare slide, with support for G.L.97 add-ons.


  • Backup your files first;
  • Open your Need for Speed III directory;
  • Copy the 'MCF1' folder to "Data/Cars";
  • Copy the "FeData" items to the "FeData" folder, confirm to replace the "COMPARE.qFS" and "COMPARE.FSH" files;
  • Copy one the "03_00.qFS" files to "FeData/Slides" (rename "03_00 (PS1 style).qFS" to simply "03_00.qFS" if you're using rata536's loading slides);
  • Run the game and select the desired vehicle.


  • When using the car, the AI is prone to crash around the course in high speeds;
  • The car has optional CAR00_HIGH.TGA and CAR00_LOW.TGA texture files, the latter used with 256x256 resolution like the vanilla cars instead of the 512x512 as default for the car and the intended CAR00_HIGH.tga for backup. Requires it to be renamed from CAR00_LOW.tga to CAR00.tga to make it work.
  • CARGAR.tga is also the 256x256, used by rata for testing.


  • rata536 - NFS2 and custom assets, and guidance with this mod;
  • DMN - Real Racing 3 textures;
  • G.L.97 - McLaren menu background, adding F1 to the comparison menu, and help with the showcase audio;
  • AJ_Lethal - NFSHS CARP Editor, used as a base, before tweaking the CARP for NFS3 with rata's help;
  • Meteor/OD2011 - small guidance with the showcase files;
  • Schnoobler - help and small contributions with the mod.

    Nice car and thanks for your work, but why do you use medium, low and tiny bodies?
