What are Upgrades?

Upgrades are one of the key things in Real Racing 3 that will get you through a series without buying more cars. Upgrades are the only way to improve a car's PR (Performance Rating) in the game. Upgrades will boost the car's top speed, acceleration, braking distance, and grip, and can help win tougher races.

Once a car is fully upgraded, it is subject to the following benefits:

  • The car can race twice as far before having to service.
  • You can customize your car for free.
  • No Drive is required to run Time Trials.
  • Certain cars have access to their associated Exclusive Series.
