The New Year Box is a Pro Kit Box in Asphalt 8: Airborne. It is one of the "All types" boxes which grant 2 cards of every available engine, parts and tech type.


The description of the New Year Box ("146 Rare & Legendary Pro cards") is wrong. The box grants 2 cards of every non-Festival card in the game, including common cards. The wrong description had been introduced with the Sixth Anniversary Mini Update for no reason.


The New Year Box is usually available during a four day offer around New Year's Day since 2015.

The only difference between the New Year Box and the Exclusive Box Exclusive Box is the time they are offered. The New Year Box is offered around New Year's Day, the Exclusive Box at random dates throughout the year.

Hidden rules[]

The number of cards in "All types" boxes adapts to the current total amount of available cards in the game—even if the player already has the box when new cards are introduced. This can be checked by tapping on the A8BoxInfo box info icon.

  • With the introduction of the new V12 MPI Engine in the Holiday Update, the number of cards in the New Year Box has increased to 144.
  • As the Fast Lane Update introduced the new i3 Engine, the number of cards should have changed to 146, but it didn't. This can either mean that the box does grant 146 cards, but the description has not been adapted, or that the box doesn't grant i3 Engines yet. As other boxes (like the Finish Line Box Finish Line Box) already drop i3 Engines, it is probable that it has been forgotten to change the box description.
  • The Sixth Anniversary Mini Update increased the number of cards to 146. This means that the i3 Engine has finally been included which is also correctly reflected by the changed drop rates. However, the box description has been changed to "146 Rare & Legendary Pro cards. 2 cards of each type". This is wrong, as there are only 39 different rare and legendary cards.
