** Also, the Ryback Firestorm car, which is awarded if the player reaches 3600 credits (meaning you have finished ''1st'' in '''''every single event in the game'''''). By that point, you don't really need it for anything anymore. Even if you want to use it for multiplayer races, it'll only come in handy if you can drift ''perfectly'' well. In contrast, the penultimate car, the Hanzo FX350, is a very fast and controllable car that is much better than the Firestorm overall.

* [[InfinityPlusOneSword Infinity Plus One Car]]: The Cobretti Slipstream is an amazingly good car, especially if you love drifting, and works well on almost any track. The Elite S510 is a close second. The Elite cars are not actually that practical despite their awesomeness or good looks. The description for the Le Mans-esque car won by taking 1st in the final race lampshades this a bit:

Added DiffLines:

** The Cobretti 530 GTS. It's among the fastest cars in the game and by the point you get it, you can pretty much just zoom through every race.
** The Ryback Titan, the hardest truck to get, is a surprisingly good vehicle for races despite being a truck. It has the same top speed as the ''Cobretti 530 GTS'' above, and also has the highest acceleration among all the trucks. Moreover, being a truck, it's also extremely tough and stable to handle, leading to very few slowdowns.
** The Hanzo FX 350, awarded for reaching 3300 credits and likely the penultimate car you will unlock. It's the second fastest car in the game, ''but'' it doesn't have paper armor, is very driftable, ''and'' has a good grip for all those tight turns or for when you just don't feel like drifting. That says volumes about its practicality, considering how the fastest car in the game is pretty much just a LeeroyJenkins, and the ultimate car is just a pure-bred drifter.

** Survival Mode, in which you have to overtake a series of semi-trucks that are dropping explosive barrels to stop you, is lifted almost directly from similar scenes in ''BadBoys II'' and ''Film/TheIsland''.

''Split Second'' is a racing game set up like a [[RealityShow reality]][=/=]GameShow (not to be confused with the [[Series/SplitSecond Tom Kennedy quizzer]] from TheSeventies, or its' 80s revival with Monty Hall) in which racers compete through 12 episodes of an internationally broadcast television series, also titled ''Split Second''. The racing is much like it is in any arcade racer, with one key difference: at any point, after accumulating enough energy (through drifting, drafting and jumps), racers can set off "Power Plays" in which bombs are dropped from helicopters, cars and trucks on the side of the track are blown up, overhead cranes and bridges are blown up and fall onto the track, ''the road itself'' is blown up to change the route of the course, buildings fall over, planes fall out of the sky... yeah, it's basically ''Burnout'' turned into a SummerBlockbuster.

*** One of the Survival courses takes place in a storm drain, giving a feel very similar to a ChaseScene in ''{{Terminator}} 2''.
