“When the 14 year old I got his PlayStation, he also got the game that would light the fire that would become my passion for anything to do with automobiles – Need For Speed: High Stakes.

“The game itself was mediocre, the car list was short but relatively cute – Ferrari, Porsche, McLaren F1, Corvette etc – but you could unlock a ridiculous car that broke the physics of the game (so to speak) – the Phantom. What an ugly thing, but it’s the car that made me feel like an absolute legend as I sped over polygonal cliffs and rammed cops. Hell yes.”

Found in Need For Speed: High Stakes, the Phantom was a fictional supercar that racers could unlock in-game. Its looks were a bit of a mashup of the supercars of the day, with a clear nod to the McLaren F1.
