New Cars

Game Changes

  • All events now require Fuel (Fuel 0 - 10) and no longer allow a car to be rented manually, as all cars are now rented by default (e.g. "Free Try" or "Stock Vehicle").
  • Premium Cars introduced. These cars could only be obtained via their IAP car packs, but as of the Decals Update in March 2015, can now be purchased separately with tokens.
  • Collections added.
  • All cars introduced from this update, including the SSC Tuatara, onwards are significantly more expensive than cars from previous updates, especially in upgrades.
  • Extra Tank booster introduced.
    • Booster duration reduced for all boosters.
  • The McLaren P1™'s price was raised to Credits 475,000 after the introduction of the Ferrari FF.
  • The SRT Dodge Challenger SRT8’s price was reduced from Credits 165,000 to Credits 95,000.
  • Three new loading screens introduced, with the first featuring the McLaren P1™, the second featuring the W Motors Lykan HyperSport, and the third featuring the Ferrari LaFerrari.
    • These loading screens would be used all the way until the Santa's Gift Update in December 2015.
  • Acceleration reduction for the Audi RS 4 Avant at Level 2 nitro.
  • All lapped races done in Quick Solo Race last one lap, regardless of the track length. The Dubai Update, however, would change the lap count to two except for Iceland, Tokyo, Venice, and Monaco.
  • In Chinese language settings, speed units are now written in English except during gameplay. This change would be reverted in the Fifth Anniversary Update.
  • New app icon with the SSC Tuatara.


  • This is the last update where AI racers are selected based on both starting rank and MAX rank.
    • This is also the last update where AI racers can have their rank numbers match your car's rank (or cap at the MAX rank if applicable).
