Everyone knows that street racing of any ilk is a recipe for disaster. Pushing a machine on public streets is an easy way to end an innocent life, which is why we love the Need For Speed franchise so much. The games allow to take to virtual tarmac to scratch our persistent illegal go-fast itch. NFS has officially released a trailer for its next title, Need For Speed: The Run, which pits high-dollar metal against each other in a race from Los Angeles to New York. Gamers who opt for the limited-edition game can sink their teeth into three unique cars, too.

Those include the mighty Lamborghini Aventador as well as the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and the yet-to-be-unveiled Porsche 911 Carrera S. We even get a few quick shadowy glances at the Porsche during the teaser. The game looks to promise plenty of fender-to-fender action, crashes and death defying feats of driving skill. Hit the jump to check out the trailer for yourself.

      I think you guys are missing the point. This game will be a more cinematic experience than either of those games. I don't think they are trying to recreate a real race experience. That's what Shift 2 was all about.

      Oh goodness...every 'street racer'/Chevy Fanboy is going to think that a yet to be produced ZL1 can beat an Aventador in a race now....sigh....

      Looks like a fun game to play. I did spot an E30 M3 and a Firebird Trans-Am. It'd be fun to drive them, but I can't imagine competitively racing them across the country against Lambos and anything more than 400hp. I'm really curious to see how they are going to lay out the game. (start with the low cars in LA and finish with the high ones in NY?)

      I read that the game only contains about 200 miles worth of track

        It only takes 200 miles to drive from LA to NY? Alright, at 200mph it should only take about 1 hour. In the mean time let me go back to Oahu and drive the 4000 miles of road on TDU2.

          Test drive is a terrible arcade game. NFS edges over it

      I hope it has more feeling for the cars, a better story and more realism than NfSHP2010. Possibly the worst NfS I ever played. I mean, I don't expect hardcore realism, but HP2010 feels more unrealistic than Flatout. Also, the tuning menu of Shift would be nice.

      This reminds me of the first NFS/NFS-SE games. This will be very very nice, brings back memories.

      I wonder if the race will real time/distance. I'm very interested in this idea for a race.
