The Hunter Manhattan Custom is the upgraded version of the Manhattan. It is everything the Manhattan was with a little less boost and a higher cruising speed. With this higher speed, the player can now afford to release boost while attempting to make a sharp turn, making its use more well rounded for events besides Stunt Run such as Races, Marked Man events and Road Rage events. Otherwise it is basically the same as its original. It has a 2 mph difference in max speed v. boost speed. This translates to: Never boost on straights. Honestly, you'll just embarrass yourself. Its greatly enhanced cruising speed does mean it can play "Road Runner" to get the most out of its limited weight.
With the magnificent Manhattan Custom, it's all about what's under the hood. The Custom packs an upgraded engine giving you a much improved cruising speed.

The Hunter Manhattan Custom is styled after 1958 Cadillacs, especially the 1958 Cadillac Fleetwood but with a coupe body style and other small changes. The rear window and rear pillar look closer to a 1958 Chevrolet Impala. It also features portholes similar to some Buicks but on the rear fenders instead of the front fenders. It has custom decals.
- In Burnout Paradise's Free February Update, the Hunter Manhattan Custom's speed stat was lowered from 8 to 4 and it's boost was lowered from 5 to 4.
