This is the awesome Annihilator Phoenix. Use it to rise from the ashes, and burn your opposition with an amped-up boost system.

The Carson Annihilator Phoenix is the upgraded version of the Annihilator. It trades one speed point for one boost point. This allows it to accelerate faster and hit harder than the standard car. Its maximum boosting speed is increased by 6 mph, but its cruising speed is decreased by 6 mph as well, making boost a much needed aspect of the vehicle. Then again, when one considers that the Annihilator's handling while boosting is one of its best attributes, it follows suit that more boost would make it even better. It is a little more effective for Race events as long as boost is available but it is still best used for Road Rage and Marked Man events.

The Annihilator is an amalgam of classic muscle car models with a custom hood blower. The front end is based on a 1971 or 1972 Plymouth Road Runner while the rear and sides are based on a 1972 Dodge Charger. However, the car is shorter than a Road Runner or Charger, being closer in length to a Dodge Challenger.


  • In Burnout Paradise's Free February Update the Annihilator Phoenix' speed stat was lowered from 6 to 4.
  • The Carson Annihilator Phoenix has hidden headlamps which do not turn on during the nighttime.
  • The car's name could be based on Annihilator's song "Phoenix Rising" (Annihilator Phoenix).
