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 is only suited for Race events. 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.

Due to its early-2000's LMP influences, the car also resembles the Modified Super from Burnout 3: Takedown, the Criterion Racer GT and EA Racer GT from Burnout Revenge, and Burnout Dominator's GT Racer.
