A stock Speedevil at the junkyard in FlatOut.

The SpeedEvil is a Silver Class car in FlatOut. It is the most powerful Silver Class vehicle available out of the Junkyard, and perhaps one of the most popular in the game, as its name has been reused multiple times in the other installments in the series.


The SpeedEvil is a small, lightweight muscle car powered by a relatively large 4.0 liter V6 engine. Producing 218 horsepower in stock form, the car is not particularly quick, even for a silver class vehicle, though it makes up for the lack of acceleration with an excellent top speed and sharp, precise handling. The car is extremely quick through turns, though perhaps too much so, as some players may find it to inhibit them with over-steer. Similar to the Gold Class car, the Blade, it shares the similar issues of steering too sharply, possibly throwing the driver off course.

In demolition derbies, the SpeedEvil is an excellent choice, as its nimble handling and heavy over-steer allow it to, almost literally, dance around its competition. Its suspension is fairly rugged and high off the ground, though judicious use of throttle should be used if a driver is attempting to navigate large bumps with it, as it tends to pitch violently over whoops sections. The car can deal a fair amount of damage to other vehicles, though its own structural integrity is mediocre at best, potentially causing issues if hit by heavier cars.


  • The car's body style is reminiscent of a first-generation Chevrolet Camaro, while the front grill greatly resembles a second generation Plymouth Barracuda. The rounded "nose" of the car may have also been inspired by the Pontiac Firebird, the Camaro's shared model from Pontiac.
  • The car makes 300 horsepower when fully upgraded, making it the most powerful Silver Class car available. However, its power to weight ratio is second worst in the class, with it being beaten by the Fasthammer.
  • The car's name is debatable, as the basic spelling seems to show "Speed Evil" when linked together, rather than "Speed Devil" (which would, obviously, require two d's in the car's name). Pronunciation is acceptable for either case.
