Burnout Wiki

The Muscle is one of the five starting vehicles in the original Burnout. It has a "Hard" rating with impressive top speed and good acceleration, although its handling can make it difficult to control.

It is tied for the fastest vehicle in the game alongside the Saloon GT, which makes it a very potent racing machine. However, the control is much lower than the Saloon GT, as it can slip around uncontrollably whilst weaving through traffic.

It can be a bad choice for beginners and - although expert players should be able to use it no problem - it can be a risky choice for some courses.

It is available in five body paint colors; red, white, grey, black and blue. Although not a possible option for the player, A.I. opponents can also use the Muscle in yellow, a trait shared with many vehicles in the original Burnout.
