This article is about Burnout Paradise vehicle. For the vehicle in Burnout Dominator, see Street Rod.
The Carson Annihilator Street Rod is one of nine new vehicles that was released in Burnout Paradise's Big Surf Island Update on June 11, 2009. This variant of the Carson Annihilator features a unique new livery, black aftermarket style rims and a more powerful engine than other Annihilator models.
The Aggression boost has been converted to Speed boost which has maxed its boost statistics making it the fastest Annihilator in the game. The Street Rod can perform Wheelies like the other Hot Rods found in Paradise City. Because of its wheelie feature, however, care is needed when engaging the boost during Road Rage or Marked Man events, as this would result in a crash if the boost was discharged at the wrong time.
Furthermore, the Speed boost feature is not useful for taking on aggressive drivers in Road Rage because it becomes useless unless it is refilled again. The Street Rod is highly beneficial for races, although eschews its use in Stunt Run events because of its weight.
The Annihilator Street Rod represents the crowning glory of blue collar street racing. With a Speed Boost system and a maxed out boost speed, there's a definite speed theme going on here! This baby has nothing to fear from any race track bred supercar show ponies.
