Fastback overtake

The Fastback Special prepares to takedown a Hunter Cavalry.

The limited edition Fastback Special is the highest specification model that Carson produced. The Track Package extras bring increased boost power for those brave enough to keep it locked on.
The Carson Fastback Special is the upgraded version of the Carson Fastback and gains one point of boost. This upgrade is questionable since the handling of the vehicle is better when using only its cruising speed. However, this makes the vehicle better for race events, where boost power is more readily needed. It does get some extra leverage when dealing with tough opponents because of its enhanced top speed. Still, don't try to go head-on with cars with strength greater than 6! Play "Road Runner" if you want to go aggressive.

This car may be more preferred over the original because of its neat, clean and repaired appearance, unless one prefers the rusty, unrestored patina of the standard Fastback.

The Fastback Special mainly resembles the 1969 Ford Mustang Fastback and the 1967 Chevrolet Camaro. The vinyls on the hood are similar to those of a 1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am, while the side stripes that read "Track Package" closely resemble those of a 1969 Yenko Camaro . The rear end also resembles a 1969 Dodge Charger R/T.
