New upgrades and mods to existing cars are now available, too, to take advantage of the power of the new machines. Additionally, brand-new cars are now available on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, including the Coil Cyclone II, Karin S95, Imponte Arbiter GT, Pfister Astron Custom, and the Pegassi Weaponized Ignus.
