The Krieger Überschall 8 is an extreme Speed vehicle in Burnout Paradise. This vehicle is capable of outrageous speeds due to its excellent speed and boost ratings but is held back by its poor strength rating. It does perform well in Race events but this appears to be all it is good for. The Überschall 8 has poor drifting capabilities meaning that players should use the vehicles boost to help the back of it slide out. If a player can control this car then its sheer speed is almost completely unmatched.
If you can keep it under control, this is a seriously rapid piece of equipment. In drifts, use the throttle to get the back end moving, then hold on tight.
How to Unlock Edit
The Überschall 8 bears a strong resemblance to the Bentley Speed 8 with the exception of its paint job, front end, and overall length as the Bentley has a longer nose and tail. The Überschall 8's rear wing and overhead intake both get pretty close to matching that of the Toyota GT-One.
The car also strongly resembles the Modified Super from Burnout 3: Takedown as well as the Criterion Racer GT and EA Racer GT from Burnout Revenge. It also appears in Burnout Dominator as the GT Racer. The Überschall 8 is thought to be based on the Dominator Super from Burnout 3: Takedown. However, the rear end of the Überschall 8 is very different from the previously mentioned cars.
