  • New card rarity names have been introduced for the existing color codes of Vehicle Kit Cards. The names are now displayed in the box info of Festival Kit Boxes and in the inventory. Only the Lamborghini Terzo Millennio Kit still has the old "Festival" name. It is unclear whether these are real rarity categories or just denote the value of the cards as there are no random processes that grant Vehicle Kit Cards so far.
