Street racing is in the palm of your hand as Hot Wheels’ lead designer Jun Imai comes to Blackridge to lend his expertise in this exciting update, where you can:
- Work with Jun in a race against the clock to win the Hot Wheels original Time Attaxi
- Earn the original Hot Wheels supercar – the Gazella GT – in an all-new Fastlane event
Hot Wheels® Time Attaxi
Work with famed Hot Wheels® designer, Jun Imai to build the ultimate street machine. Taking inspiration from the traditional Hong Kong taxi, the Hot Wheels® Time Attaxi is built to take you (and any gutsy passengers) from point A to B as quick as possible in style. The Hot Wheels® Time Attaxi will be earnable in-game through a limited-time Special Event beginning March 9 (AEDT). Don't dawdle, though. The meter's running!
Hot Wheels® Gazella GT
The Hot Wheels® Gazella GT is modelled in the spirit of the tourer-class car, with the performance and sleek looks to match. Reminiscent of the European supercar, this aggressive coupe stands to makes waves once it arrives in Blackridge. The Hot Wheels® Gazella GT will be earnable in-game through a Fastlane limited-time special event starting March 24 (AEDT).
Visual Points Removal, and Modshop Changes
As mentioned earlier, this update we're retiring Visual Points (VP), and adjusting unlock progression in the Mod Shop. Firstly, you will not lose any previously purchased colors or modifications - you will get to keep your collection. We'll be providing in-game compensation for any leftover VP in your inventory. With the removal of VP, additional visual customizations will now be become available as you stage up your car.
You read correctly. Wraps are here! Customise your rides even further with access to a variety of different looks, with even more to come down the track. Wraps will be increasingly unlocked via completing driving milestones for each car. We'll also be offering unique one-off wraps as prizes for the top-participating drivers in Blackridge Rivals. Yep, that also means more in-game rewards are coming to Blackridge Rivals. Now you can back up your claims of being the fiercest underground racer with these new visual looks as proof!
