The Need for Speed
Description official descriptions
Drive some of your favourite sports cars through wild and fast tracks, including the Dodge Viper, Lamborghini, Ferrari, Porsche, Corvette, Mazda RX7, Toyota Supra Turbo, and Acura NSX. Some of the tracks are open road, meaning you simply fly down a huge highway, with cops following in hot pursuit. One of the options in the game allows you to pick which time of the day to race in.

The Japanese Sega Saturn version of this game was supplied with a custom Nissan keyring made out of metal.
The game has three different FMV animations that are every time picked randomly as an intro sequence spin-offs. If you started game just a couple of times, there's a big chance you won't even notice that, as all three animations presents cars running the nature or polygons, with the same engine roar, but with the different music in the background.
Japanese Saturn version
The game's Japanese Sega Saturn version, Over Drivin' GT-R, is notable for only having Nissan vehicles (hence the Nissan Presents and the GT-R on the game's title) and apparently having different vehicle physics from every other version of the game.
