Trivia Edit

  • The icon for this update features the Hennessey Venom GT, last introduced in the Fuel Events update.
    • The promotional banner for this update also features the Hennessey Venom GT and Nissan GT-R NISMO racing in the new Dubai track. This same image is used as a background image in the official Gameloft forums for the game.

Bugs / Glitches Edit

  • Overranked AI Cars: There are various instances where a car is ranked higher than its MAX rank (e.g. Lamborghini Veneno ranked at S1666). This would eventually become the basis of Pro Kits and Elite Cars, introduced in the Winter Update and Elite Cars Update, respectively.
    • Even with the addition of Pro Kits, it is still impossible to have certain cars at a rank in the Dubai Update, like the Ford Focus RS being ranked at C1366 even though its current maximum rank is C1355.
    • With hacking, though, it is possible to make the cars ranked much higher to simulate the Dubai Update via Elite Tuning, although this may not work for all cars.
