The current list is incomplete

v1.1.8 Sub-update

Game changes:

  • Daily Car Trials and Champions Clash now have a timer showing when the next set of races will be available.
  • The price glitch for the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat has been fixed.
  • The Upgrade tabs now show how many upgrade aspects have components ready to be purchased.

Bugs / Glitches

  • Extremely cheap Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat: The Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is purchasable just for $32,000, the same price as the starter Class D cars. This is presumably an oversight as the Vanquish and Vantage GT12 cost 10 times as much to buy. This was fixed in the v1.1.8 sub-update.
  • Incorrect post-race results:
    • The post-race results may show the car that the player last used instead of the current one. This is only a visual glitch and does not affect the race itself.
      • The same can happen with the opponent.
    • The game may say that the player lost even if they clearly won the race. This is also a visual glitch and does not affect the race results. In Champions Clash, the player will receive the correct amount of points.
      • On rare occasions, if the player's connection is unstable, the post-race results will take longer to show up and will say that the player lost. In Champions Clash, the player's points will be deducted
    • All variations of this bug have been present since the soft launch versions of the game.

Trivia

  • Despite the update making the interior of most cars more clearly visible, no driver avatar is shown in the driver's seat when racing.
