Asphalt Wiki
It's all come down to this... You've helped mold this car into one of the finest driving machines of all time... Now a final race with our AI is all that stands between you and the big prize!

The Ultimate AI Challenge is a Versus race in the Research & Development and World Tour modes of Asphalt 8: Airborne that involves a ghost car named the "Ultimate AI".

A variation of the event, named Final, is used in Moto Blitz, and serves as the final race of each Moto Blitz season.


The Ultimate AI Challenge works exactly the same as a Versus race, except the other racer is a blue ghost car named the "Ultimate AI". Ultimate AI Challenges are always found at the end of each Lab, although there may be one or more prior to the end of the Lab.

There are currently 85 total Ultimate AI Challenges (and 13 Moto Blitz Finals) in the game.


Just finish the race before the AI does. The difficulty of this will vary according to the recommended rank. The final Ultimate AI Challenges found in the R&D events for most of the Class A/Class S cars (except the Mosler Super GT) and the Renault Alpine Celebration tend to be very difficult (often requiring a MAX+PRO car with a Nitro Starter, Tuning Kit, and Extra Tank activated), while the others tend to be easier (e.g. Alfa Romeo 4C, Lotus Evora Sport 410). Originally, the Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe Touring Car 2014 can be won with a Multiplayer configuration rather than a MAX+PRO car by exploiting a shortcut glitch near the London Bridge, but due to the glitch being patched as of the Lunar New Year 2017 Update, the car can only be won at MAX+PRO. As of the Fast Lane Update, however, the penultimate AI of an R&D event can be more difficult to beat than the last AI, noticeable in the events for Ferrari F60 America and Ford GT (2017).

Losing the Ultimate AI Challenge allows the player to either redo it or skip it with Auto-Test, paying a high amount of tokens in the process (up to Tokens 2,800). However, sometimes, the game may actually cause the player's loss to be mistakenly registered as a win, as there is a small window allowing for a slightly slower lap time to be logged but still registered as a win.

For Ultimate AI Challenges that occur on difficult tracks like the Rio de Janeiro, Azure Coast, Patagonia, and Iceland tracks, it is best to practice them regularly and watch videos of the best routes for each track so as to be able to gain an edge when tackling the Ultimate AI Challenge, even if underranked by several points, but not too low that winning is impossible due to the lack of speed; it is generally recommended to upgrade the top speed and nitro (especially the latter in the ED Design Torq's case).

Ultimate AI Challenges generally recommend boosters. The final ones recommend the player be triple-boosted.

The Finals in Moto Blitz work with the same strategy, however players cannot pay tokens to auto-pass.


When the player reaches an Ultimate AI Challenge, the R&D team helping develop the car will say something, usually encouraging the player to go beat the Ultimate AI.
