There’s a total of 100 flamingos
to collect. They are available after reaching REP level 13
and appear on the map whenever you drive close by one. To find out how many you have collected, you can either check the district summaries on the map or the collectibles stats in the menu.
I have created an interactive map
that includes all flamingos (and other points of interest):https://swissgameguides.com/maps/need_for_speed_heat/palm_ci...
All flamingos are pretty straight forward to collect, so you shouldn’t have much troubles getting them. The one flamingo in Downtown Palm City that can only be accessed via the monorail can also be collected during the Time Trial “Trail Rail” (in case you fall down it will respawn you on the rail).
There aren’t really any restrictions on cars that you should use to get them, but I’ve used the default Land Rover “Range Rover Sport SVR ‘15” which costs $107’000 and has good off-road qualities that are helpful when traversing the map in general.FYI:
I’ve taken screenshots for all collectibles that will be added to the map soon.
