Stage 01 (Ahmed's Escapade)

Players who successfully complete all of the goals given in the first stage (Ahmed's Escapade) are rewarded with 10 Icon Gold. Throughout the first stage, players will have to race the McLaren MP4-X on Dubai Autodrome.

Quote Ahmed
Hello, my friend! If there is one thing you know about little old me, it is that I’m full of surprises, no? Well, here is another - I have the plans for the McLaren MP4-X concept, and they want us to build is!

What is the MP4-X, I hear you ask? Well, it is McLaren’s beautiful, revolutionary, unregulated, unrestricted and downright jaw dropping concept for the future of racing!

So, I built it. Well, my team built it. It is bare bones at the moment - flash on the outside, but unfinished inside. I need to know where we can improve it, so what do you say you give your expert opinion?

Very good! Listen, I can make the MP4-X perfect - as it was intended - but I need the help of your crew. If you can convince them to join me in my venture - you can have it! I'll be able to make my own, then!

Quote Eric
Let me think about it... No! No, no... And no. No way I'm getting involved with Ahmed's schemes again. You think it's easy to regrow eyebrows this perfect after he 'accidently burns them off' again?!

Quote Ahmed
What? Engines are dangerous. And at least see what my creation can do before you say 'No', so emphatically. Trust me, you'll change your tune... I just hope the engine does not overheat out there in the Dubai sun!

Quote Eric
I’ll tell you one thing Ahmed - you sure can sell anything! And how’s this for a second thing? I’m in. I’ll work on the MP4-X. Keep us in the loop, OK? Anything you know, we know. I don’t want any secrets...
— Eric, Auto Engineer
Quote Ahmed
Eric, Eric, you worry too much. I will be an exemplar of openness. I will tell you everything - too much, perhaps! You will know every single time I, uh… Enough about that.

Tomorrow we’re heading to Germany. With Eric on board, it is time for us to start sourcing parts. I have a few contacts there, and Eric’s own channels will get us what we need.

Stage 03 (Contact in Germany)

Players who successfully complete all of the goals given in the third stage (Contact in Germany) are rewarded with 15 Icon Gold. Throughout the third stage, players will have to race the McLaren MP4-X on Hockenheimring.

Quote Ahmed
Last night I had a waking dream, do you know this? In it, I saw myself stride the MP4-X, resplendent in glory! But, a detractor, he shouted from the stands 'What is so good about the MP4-X, anyway?'

And you know what I said to him? 'Everything!' Of course! But, in truth, my favourite feature is the Plasma Jet Actuators. Frankly, I just like the name. That is why we are in Hockenheim - to get them built!

Quote Ahmed
I know what you must be thinking - how are we on a Porsche test track, whilst testing a McLaren against a Lotus fleet? Well, question not my methods. You have your driving skills, and I have my convincing...

We're here to test out the new MP4-X on some of these tricky stretches of road - all whilest I have a few words with the team here about some extras. Sadly, I may have stretched too far ahead of myself...

And here we are, my friends. I have a few friends here who have been tinkering with 'cognitive control' - that is, controlling something just by thinking about it. We need to impress them, to get their support!

Quote Magnus
It is so good of you to show up, what with your unofficial McLaren MP4-X and all. It is quaint - to be honest, I thought you would have painted it in little scribbled crayons. This is a surprise.

Ahmad, I think you went a little overboard with that last one. I want to see Magnus get his just deserts as much as anyone else, but I think you’ve angered some people with that stunt.
— Eric, Auto Engineer
Quote Ahmed
Perhaps you are right, my friend. McLaren have called for a meet in two days’ time to compare our two MP4-X’s, so we should lay low for a time, perhaps at Spa? We can get some more work done, as well.

Players who successfully complete all of the goals given in the seventh stage (Safer Driving) are rewarded with 25 Icon Gold. Throughout the seventh stage, players will have to race the McLaren MP4-X on Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps.

Quote Ahmed
Despite my recklessness, I am a man of the people. No, it is true! Specifically, a man of safety for the people. That is what drew me to the MP4-X - the enclosed cockpit...
— Ahmed
Quote Eric
Enclosed cockpit, you say? That's a pretty controversial topic here, Ahmed. There's definitely merits to it, no doubt. Are you hoping this little exhibition will convince everyone to change the rules?
— Eric, Auto Engineer
Quote Ahmed
In part. My mission is to breed discussion through competition! How can we have a debate when only one side has been seen? I am an advocate for change, after all - and an enclosed cockpit is such one such case!

Quote Eric
Hey Ahmed, you got something to say to us, huh? I just heard something from an old Engineer friend of mine, who still works for Magnus. It was YOU who gave Magnus the plans for the MP4-X - who betrayed us!
— Eric, Auto Engineer
Quote Ahmed
Ah, but alas, my ruse must come to an end. Yes, it was I. I am the architect of this great rivalry. But, Eric, if you would stop to listen to me, you'd understand why it was so. All shall be revealed in time!

But I couldn't have done it without you both, my friends. I am sorry that I kept secrets from you, but I hope you understand. To show my appreciation, and because I promised, the MP4-X is now yours. Enjoy!
