17.0 UPDATE PATCH NOTES
Welcome to the Top Drives 17.0 Update Patch Notes!
We’re adding new cars, a new Collection Series and more. Read on to find out all about it.
New Cars - Loch to Loch
We're excited to introduce you to three new automotive brands: Morgan, Ginetta, and BAC. These British car manufacturers are known for their unique designs and impressive performance on the track. In addition to these new brands, we also added new cars from Lotus and TVR to the collection. In total, there are 84 new cars hitting the track in the update. Here are our favourite highlights:
It might look old, but underneath the Morgan Plus Six’s 1950s chocolate-box looks there is a thoroughly modern drivetrain – the British roadster shares the same turbocharged straight-six engine and gearbox as the BMW Z4 and Toyota Supra. This blend of high tech and tradition means the Morgan is faster to 60mph than either of its distant relatives.
Don’t be fooled by its number plates and indicators, the Ginetta G40R is a racecar to its core. Not only is it equipped with a roll cage and fire extinguisher, but it also has the punchy engine, uncompromising drivetrain and perfectly balanced chassis of a car that was designed to spend its life on a race track. The great handling stat makes this Ginetta worth hunting down!
Lotus is the master of handling, so there’s no doubt that its dedicated race car, the Evora GX, would be a master of hitting apexes. Add into the mix a widened track and flared arches, a jutting splitter and huge wing, a supercharged V6 and sequential gearbox, and you have the recipe for the perfect GT racer. It’s also the new fastest Evora in Top Drives!
