Bugs / Glitches

  • Fusion error: Fusing pro kit cards no longer increases the fusion points in fusing boxes. This was fixed shortly after.
  • Graphics setting error: Players were set to low or high graphic settings automatically after updating.
  • Blurry graphics: Several items are reported to now be shown in a blurred manner. The only solution is to set the visual quality in "Medium"
    Notice the blurred texture of the Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition.

    The rendering of the Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition and of the trees as affected by the blurry graphics issue.

  • Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition Elite tuning and Condition issue: Some players have reported that the Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition's Elite tuning feature momentarily disappears. The condition bar has also been reported to not be deducted even after several races have been completed.
  • Honda Civic Type-R Blueprints: Despite the blueprint's rarity now changed to Rare, the blueprint still gives 3,000 fusion points instead of 9,000 points for a rare blueprint card. This was fixed prior to the update's release on Windows.
  • Abnormally high number of Huracan blueprints in Moto Blitz: As of this update, Moto Blitz awards a total of 172 Blueprints for Lamborghini Huracan, which is excessive, considering it needs 145 Blueprints to be built.
    • However, considering the Aprilia Tuono V4 RR being delayed due to a licensing problem between Gameloft and Aprilia, the excessive Blueprint count might be intentional to compensate.
  • No World Tour Events on Windows: The first vehicle event for Windows players is the Audi R8 e-tron Special Edition's R&D as opposed to mobile players, who got the BMW M2 Special Edition's World Tour before the e-tron SE's R&D.
    • The event was added later that day.
  • World Tour Streaming Pass refill glitch: If the game is re-entered for more than the time taken to refill one Streaming Pass, the countdown to the next Streaming Pass will only begin when the game is restarted (Eg if the player re-enters the game three hours after spending all Streaming Passes, the timer to refill the second out of three Streaming Passes will be displayed as 2h 30 min left instead of 2h left). The only solution to the glitch is to enter the game just before the next Streaming Pass is given.
  • 95% off Corvette C3: For a few hours on February 21, 2018 many players were able to purchase the C3 for a heavily discounted price of A8 tokens full 300. The discounted price was later corrected to A8 tokens full 3,000.
    • For users with the new price changes, the glitch never appeared.
  • Tuning Button issue: Players on the Android platform are still experiencing issues with the Tuning Button. It still causes the game to freeze and force-close when pressed.
  • Yamaha YZF-R6 Handling Error: The front wheel of the Yamaha YZF-R6 is known to lift off from the ground momentarily but not counted as a wheelie when the player activates a Level 3 nitro or Supercharged nitro, causing the bike to be very difficult to turn. A partial solution to this is to activate Level 3/Perfect Nitro or Supercharged Nitro when the player is turning the bike.
  • Unbuildable FZ-10: If the player has obtained all blueprints for the Yamaha FZ-10 from elsewhere or completing its EDD, the bike disappears from the garage.
    • The error was fixed on March 23, 2018.

The following bugs/glitches have been fixed:

  • Android "Empty Data" Update
  • Bike Physics
  • Motorcycles knockdown glitch
  • Fusion error
  • Honda Civic Type-R Blueprints where the fusion points worth 3,000 points instead of 9,000 points for the rare blueprint card.
  • Holding down any mouse button will no longer register erroneous clicks in Windows.


  • This update has the firsts of the following:
    • The first of 2018.
    • The first to add a motorcycle that is EDD-obtainable.
    • The first to add new songs to the game since The Great Wall Update.
    • The first to be associated with a band.
    • The first to add a Singaporean vehicle.
    • The first to add a Class A electric vehicle
    • The first to change a Blueprint's rarity.
    • The first to introduce a Class S electric vehicle since the Enduro Update.
    • The first to add a vehicle whose engine card count is not divisible by 4. In this case, Vanda Electrics Dendrobium needs 14 Electric Engine cards instead of 16. It needs 4 Electric Engine cards for Tires, 3 for Suspension, 4 for Drivetrain and 3 for Exhaust.
    • The first to have a vehicle's event delayed 3 times. In this case, the Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 RR my2017's R&D, which was originally in the Munich Update was postponed to the Hot Wheels Update, then again to the 2018 Spring Update
      • Due to licensing problems between Gameloft and Aprilia (as mentioned in the "Bugs/Glitches" section), the R&D is currently postponed indefinitely and has the possibility of being canceled.
    • The first since the Tenerife Update to add an Audi car.
      • Incidentally, this means Audi ties with W Motors for being the vehicle brand with the fourth-longest time gap between updates to have a vehicle added, at 2 years & 9 months (a total of 15 updates), after the addition of the Audi R8 LMS Ultra during the Tenerife Update.
    • The first update to add more than one car modified with aftermarket customizations as a rehashed version of an already-existing car in the game, rather than said cars being real-life high-performance counterparts of the original car.
      • This is also the first update to add 2 vehicles modified with aftermarket customizations as a rehashed version of an already-existing car in the game to use red and black License Plate.
    • The first motorcycle added whose special event does not give blueprints for building them & awarded only after completing the whole tests of R&D.
  • This is the second update since the Car Blueprints Update to add vehicles whose special events do not give blueprints for building them. In this case, Ariel Atom V8, Buick 2013 Riviera, Vanda Electric Dendrobium, Yamaha YZF-R6 & Audi R8 e-tron Special Edition are awarded only after completing all Grand Finale races of their Championships & completing the whole tests of R&D respectively.
  • On February 7th, 2018, the official trailer for the update was uploaded to the official Asphalt YouTube channel but was deleted in March 2018.
