Looks fast, but it's Mclaren...is there some deal they have with them that their new cars put in are to be OP?
I don't know why they made X2 so good, Mclaren **** these days, cannot compete in F1 at ALL. Why think their engine in an X2 would be any better? Just silly how they made it an S car too.

I'm SO glad I didn't fuse my stockpile of CREs to clear inventory space.  That is, IF this uses CREs instead of some brand-new horsepucky type of engine card.  What's the over/under for number of engines this takes to max out?  The X2 was 64 engines.

:D yeah and I've collected all but 6 of them. Zero CREs. Guess I'll be passing this one.

That's a photoshopped pic, McLaren Championships have a different championship icon to the other championships. They use the McLaren logo (looks like a curve), Porsche championships have a shield logo, all other car brands use the regular "arrow" logo.

According to the wiki + other leaked sources:

All four boosters are server side now. (Double Credits, NS, TK, Extra Tanks)

New cars:
Infiniti Project Black S
Ford GT 2017
Koenigsegg Regera
Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita
Aston Martin Vantage

Showdown Mode:
Is literally Mario Kart meets Asphalt 8. You use power-up items on other racers/yourself to win the race...
According to the leaked pics, it looks similar to the format of Festivals. Theres a trophy icon, box icons, and the meter. Maybe the power-up items works like coins, this would encourage people to take part, this woud also mean its forced on players to play this style (it's not a new "mode" akin to Career Mode/Bike Mode or a new selection akin to Classic/Infected/Elimination)

Image

eSports:
There's apparently gonna be an eSports-like tournament happening in A8 during the month of July. It has the aspahltesports.com URL link but that currently points to a page that clearly looks like its Asphalt 9-only. So this could be a mistake? But Pepper did mention this part in the promo video so maybe they haven't added A8 to it yet.

Thanks @Nive. Is it just me, or does Mario Asphalt sound actually quite fun? :lol:

@Nive BIG thanks for sharing this much information.👍👍👍

(Boosters now on servers like inventory, max upgrades, events etc. A8 went more and more to an only online//wifi game over the last year.)
