Ferrari Testarossa stock + price
  • New location: Sector 8.
  • Christmas decorations added to Iceland, Tokyo, and the Alps. They return every Christmas season, in the Santa's Gift Update, Championship Update, Hot Wheels UpdateTransylvania Update and 2019 Holiday Update.
    • In 2019, the Christmas decorations have returned a bit earlier, prior to the Holiday Update.
  • Pro Kits introduced. These allow a car to perform better than its maximum rank would allow, similar to a Tuning Kit. However, unlike Tuning Kits, Pro Kits can upgrade the stats of a car individually, and require cards in order to purchase unlocks
  • New currency: Tokens (Tokens). Tokens are a premium currency introduced in this update, and can be used to buy Double Credits Bonuses, Extra Tanks, Pro Kit Boxes, cars, and to refill fuel points.
  • AI racer ranks are now calculated better based on either the recommended rank of the event or the rank of the car you are using. For more information, see this page.
  • The Ferrari 599XX now always comes with a black hardtop roof.
  • The Peugeot Onyx's appearance has been slightly modified; it now appears oxidized.
  • The speed stats in the Garage are now displayed with one decimal place for better accuracy. However, internal data suggests that there are actually at least two decimal places.
  • When selecting a car that the player doesn't own in the garage, the car is no longer surrounded by a red dashed ring circling the car's platform (shown on right).
  • The hue of the Garage no longer changes to be darker when selecting/viewing cars for Events.


9FF GT9 VMAX stock
  • This is also the last update to feature the original Garage design.
