The Volkswagen ID.R that destroyed the Nürburgring Nordschleife record in 2019 with a 6-minute, 5-second lap is here as well, and it costs 2 million credits from Brand Central, where new cars are sold. The Porsche VGT Spyder is on offer in the same store for 1 million.


Other inclusions consist of three additional events in World Circuits, two new Scapes locales — Yosemite and Tokyo — and slight changes to Performance Points calculations. That might just mess up whatever car you’ve built for script grinding purposes. You know — for those that do that.

Conspicuously not present in this update is the ability to sell cars, which was first announced in March. At this point, I’m starting to wonder if Polyphony has given up on adding the feature to the game — or was waiting for the launch hysterics to blow over before quietly shelving its plans.
