Performance-wise, the Custom Coupe has double the speed of its stock variant and two more acceleration points, although it sacrifices much of original's control in exchange. Despite being one of the later unlocks in the Custom Series Championship, the Custom Coupe has one of the lower stat distributions in its class. While an effective racer, it is easily outclassed.
However, it got a face-lift for the Xbox release, in the form of a small boost to its handling and a sizable boost to its acceleration. This stat increase makes it one of the better vehicles in the custom series and in the game overall. In addition, it can also recolor its default vinyl from green with aqua tears to yellow with orange tears. It also gets a new flame streak vinyl, which can be colored either blue with yellow streaks or black with yellow streaks.
The Custom Coupe would go onto become one of the most recognizable vehicles in the series and would appear the most out of all recurring vehicles, appearing in Burnout 3: Takedown, Burnout Legends, Burnout Dominator, and Burnout Paradise, the most reappearances out of any recurring vehicle.
Win the Split Second Grand Prix.
The Custom Coupe Ultimate greatly resembles a sixth-generation Honda Civic coupe with a modified bodykit. The rear greatly resembles the Honda CR-X with its taillights and its semi-hatchback appearance.
- The Custom Coupe was the first vehicle in the series to feature a green coloring, which would be unique to the Custom Coupe until the Xbox release, in which the Supercar was also given a green coloring.
