Disambig iconThis article is about Muscle Type 2 in Burnout 3. For Muscle Type 2 in Burnout Legends, see Muscle Type 2 (Burnout Legends).

The Muscle Type 2 is a vehicle in Burnout 3: Takedown. It is a bit different from the other vehicles in its class, as it does not perform very well when confronting rivals. It is hard for it to be used to attack another driver or perform takedowns. This makes its best uses seen in Race events.

The Muscle Type 2's stats are distinctly average although it has rather quick acceleration. The control is responsive enough, but it is poor at takedowns and can easily lose traction under pressure from other racers. It is more of a learning car for players starting the Muscle Series as its stats aren't very exceptional.

The Muscle Type 2 can only be painted black, blue, and red, although yellow was available before being cut from the released game.

How to UnlockEdit

Muscle Type 2

The Muscle Type 2's front and midsection closely resembles that of a fifth-gen Nissan Skyline GT-R/Nissan Skyline R34 V-spec II or a Ford Mustang SVT Cobra's.

The headlights resemble that of a Nissan Maxima GLE 2002-2003 (fifth generation) with a smoke tint. The tail lights resemble that of a fifth generation Ford Mustang (before the redesigned 2010 model) with the exception of the color of the turn signals.

Notes Edit

Muscle Type 3 Cover Explosion

The Type 3 Muscle on the Burnout 3 cover. It has different rims than the in-game car.

  • The Muscle Type 2 is the vehicle caught in the explosion on the cover for Burnout 3. This can be easily told because the distinctive grill on the bonnet is the same on both vehicles.
  • The Nakamura Ikusa GT from Burnout Paradise is loosely based on this vehicle.
  • A black Muscle Type 2 is the car used in the Need for Speed Underground 2 demo of Burnout 3.
  • In the game's cover, it is seen painted in yellow, but that color isn't available in normal gameplay.
