Evolution Studios Driveclub update v1.21 has just gone live, adding in a host of cars and features, including a new Sprint Mode. The update is 533 MB.
Sprint Mode may be heaven sent for more casual gamers, as it lets you run through smaller sections of the courses for shorter runs. You can play Sprints for Time Trials and Challenges. There will be unique Sprints for standard and reversed tracks, so hardcore fans will have some reason to check it out as well. There are Sprint tracks for the courses Cayoosh Point, Putre, Munnar, Goshodaira, Holmastad & The Kyle.
Added in as a supercar level 66 reward is the Renault Sport R.S. 01. Of course, this is a brand new and real vehicle, inspired by concept cars and able to reach a top speed of 300 kph.
You can check out the full list of updates below, and watch the Renault Sport R.S. 01 trailer above.
