Need for Speed No Limits’ Lunar New Year update adds McLaren Speedtail

The mobile spin-off for the Need for Speed racing game series, No Limits, has just received a large update to celebrate the Lunar New Year – and it includes the McLaren Speedtail hypercar.

First launched in 2015, the free-to-player racer is celebrating its 50th update with the latest ‘Rise of the Tiger’ patch.

The McLaren Speedtail is a unique three-seater supercar that can top 250 mph. You can earn it by completing a Rise of the Tiger in-game event, plus a special Lunar New Year-themed wrap, open from today (25th January) until 15th February.

Two other new cars are also being added. The 1977 Pontiac Firebird, which can be yours be completing Crew Trials and the 2021 Porsche 911 GT3 which could be yours for racing in the Xtreme Racing Championship.

Need for Speed No Limits Crew Trials

Speaking of Crew Trials, this is a brand-new event type. Each focuses on a different crew, where you face off against different members before reaching the boss.

There’s also a suite of smaller quality of life changes too for the iOS and Android mobile title developed by Real Racing 3 creators Firemonkeys Studios.
