The game was released on March 12, 2006 or exactly eleven months after the original version's release. It was released on December 19, 2012 on PlayStation Network for the PS3; However, it was removed after a passing of time due to licensing issues.

This version of the game also allows the player to import the ''The Fast and the Furious'' data on their memory card to ''The Fast and the Furious Special Edition'' to make up for lost progress, thus saving the player from starting all over again.
