The Bruckell Moonhawk is an intermediate-sized coupe with I6 and V8 engine options, made by Bruckell. It was added in the update on September 11th, 2013. It can be upgraded with heavy duty coil springs, shocks, and front sway bar for tighter handling, as well as a sport steering box and steering wheel. The base I6 makes less than 150 horsepower, while the standard V8 makes around 200hp. The V8 can be upgraded to a supercharged version making almost 300 horsepower. The engines make peak torque around 2500 rpm and have smooth power delivery throughout the rev range. Both 4-speed manual and 3-speed automatic transmissions are available.

The standard V8 Moonhawk weighs about 1650 kg. It rides on 15x7 inch wheels with hubcaps and can reach 60 mph in 9.8 seconds. The sport version has a sportier 3-spoke steering wheel, stiffer springs and shocks, a stiffer front sway bar, a faster steering box, and a close-ratio limited-slip differential. It also comes with 15x8 inch front wheels and 15x9 inch rear wheels for improved grip. With the 3-speed auto, close-ratio LSD, and grippier tires, its 0-60 time is cut down to 9.2 seconds.

The Special includes a supercharged V8, removed bumpers, and slotted mag wheels - 8 inches wide in front and 9 inches wide in the rear. It also has all of the suspension and steering upgrades of the Sport, and includes a racing wheel. It can reach 60 mph in 6.4 seconds.

The Terrible has the I6 engine, 4-speed manual, close-ratio LSD, standard suspension, and completely removed front and rear bumpers and fascia, reducing curb weight to about 1450 kg. It also removes the hubcaps, passenger seat, and rear bench, and has the sport steering box and racing wheel, making for a formidable banger racing car. It only takes 8.2 seconds to reach 60 mph, despite having the weakest engine.
