The VIP System is a game element of the Asphalt series, introduced in Asphalt Nitro and added to Asphalt 8: Airborne via the Rio de Janeiro Update. It adds incentive to buy in-app purchases by accompanying each purchase with a special currency, VIP Points, giving access to further, sometimes exclusive, game content. As this will cost a lot of money to get into the higher VIP levels (approximately $4000 for Level 15), it is highly not advised that one should go for these VIP Levels in short term.
Another reason to not go for the VIP Levels, is that 3 of the cars that will be awarded after reaching certain VIP Levels are actually purchasable for credits (one of them was even given out as a Daily Bonus), another one (the McLaren 570S) is available for 55 common-rarity Blueprints, and the exclusive car, the 2015 GTA Spano, earned at Level 15, is largely inferior to the majority of high-end Class A and Class S cars, and has restrictive usability, being an Elite Car. As such, it is not recommended to spend money just for this system - real money should only be spent as a last resort.
- VIP Points
These points are acquired through in-game purchases. Every US dollar (US$) equals 15 VIP Points.

Since the VIP System is not really self-explanatory, Gameloft has created a page with additional information in their forum: http://forum.gameloft.com/viewtopic.php?f=1503&t=384672
It is accessible via the Profile section, on a tab called VIP.
- VIP Points
These points are acquired through in-game purchases. Every US dollar (US$) equals 100 VIP Points. According to Gameloft, the points are not distributed retroactively, meaning the user will not receive all points for purchases before the introduction of the VIP System, although a number of users have been rewarded points for some past expenses. For example, a player who has purchased a lot of Tokens and Credits may be VIP Level 3 or 4 when introduced to the VIP System.
- VIP Levels
Going from 0 to 15, every level has its specific benefits. When you level up, you get instantly certain rewards such as Tokens, Credits, multipliers, Kit Boxes, Boosters, and Cars. The current level determines the Race Permanent Bonus which is active in all races an all game modes, as well as the Daily Bonus. Other rewards are the cars Volkswagen Beetle Turbo, Range Rover Evoque Coupe HSE Dynamic, Ferrari Testarossa, and the McLaren 570S.
Unless a player is VIP Level 6 or higher, they will not be able to reset the tuning for the Audi R8 e-tron Special Edition.
In VIP Level 15, the user is given access to an exclusive car, the 2015 GTA Spano, requiring 400,000 points, which is the equivalent of up to US$4,000 (minimum US$3,892.84) in-app purchases. For a detailed list of rewards, check the VIP Rewards & Extras page.
- Daily Bonus
The Daily Bonus depends on your VIP Level, not that the bonus is completely different, but higher VIP Levels get better bonus. These are bonuses that are applied to the Daily Login Rewards Calendar.
The Daily Bonus is divided in two: multipliers and extras.
- Daily Bonus Multipliers
These Multipliers are implemented to the rewards calendar. Example: If you get a daily reward of 10 Tokens, and you get multiplier of “x2 Daily Bonus” Tokens, it will multiply that by 2 and 20 will be rewarded that day instead.
- Daily Bonus extras
You’ll notice that some days of the Daily Bonuses Calendars have 2 items in a single box (each box representing one day). The second item corresponds to a VIP level. If your VIP level matches the one displayed in the VIP logo of that box you will get that extra rewarded item on that day.
For instance a VIP Level 1 user receives a Lucky VIP Box, containing 2 random cards, whereas a VIP Level 5 user gets a VIP Box 2 containing 3 random cards. Also if the Daily Bonus is an item marked with VIP Level 2, a VIP Level 1 user will not be able to claim the item.
- VIP Boxes
Some boxes accessible through VIP Points where specifically created for this purpose, such as the Lucky VIP Box or the Awesome VIP Box. See the Pro Boxes page for more info.
