Asphalt 8: Airborne currently has 273 vehicles (259 cars and 14 motorcycles), divided into 5 classes: D, C, B, A and S, with Class D being the lowest and Class S being the highest. For the full list of vehicles, see this page. Most vehicles also belong to a Collection, that give Credits or various other items as bonuses when the player owns all vehicles of a collection. Vehicles can be bought for Credits or Tokens, can be assembled with Blueprints (before 2019 Holiday Update), are unlocked through Car Mastery, or are only obtainable within their respective events.
Asphalt 8 originally launched with 47 cars, and more are being added since the Free to Play Update.
However, 6 vehicles have been removed from the game for non-owners and one is a one-time promotional TLE-exclusive car, reducing the number of playable vehicles to 265. To know more, see Asphalt 8: Airborne/Licensing Issues.
The "real" speed of cars (mostly Class S cars and some high-end Class B and A cars) differs from what is indicated in the HUD. Check the page Speed Modification for more details.

There are three ways to play a multiplayer match on Asphalt 8: Airborne:
- The Local Wi-Fi Race
- Time-limited online Events (TLEs)
- The Multiplayer League introduced in the Multiplayer League Update, replacing the now-defunct global World Series 'tournament'
Introduced in the Car Mastery Update, Car Mastery (or just Mastery) is another single player game mode.

As of the Fast Lane Update, all completed Mastery races are non-replayable. See the dedicated Car Mastery page for more details.
