    Very cool that MS is singled out in the headline.

    My son and I are big fans of the Asphalt series (although I should really be pitching Need For Speed ;):

    Now, this is what I'm talking about! (Got some small nitro, acceleration and handling upgrades thanks to a "loyalty" bonus)

    The cool motor sound was nicely done! No balloon air escaping during hard acceleration ;)

    I bought the game as well. The car is rendered very nicely and is fun to race with.

    I'm probably being WAY too picky, but a few things bothered me:

    - The Model S is in the lowest class of cars, along with a Dodge Dart (?)
    - When you crash, all the doors fly off (doesn't happen with a few of the other cars I've raced)
    - The undercarriage of the car is incorrect

    Nevertheless, I'm glad to see it in the game, and I'm sure it's a bit of easy revenue for Tesla.

    "although I should really be pitching Need For Speed"

    Do you work for EA? NFS is a decent game as well.

    That is because the passengers leave the car unharmed. The other cars, not so much.

    What bothers me is the 0-60 is 4.40 sec when Tesla official numbers are 4.20 sec.

    Yeah, exhaust pipes and all!

    Yup. Haven't heard from Criterion about whether NFS:Rivals is going to have the Model S or not. Would be really cool if it did.

    Wish I had that kind of pull :) I'll look for it in The Sims 4 when it goes internal beta a little later this year.

    Perhaps you could try sending it up the hierachy as "customer's feedback" from me! LOL. I've always wondered how Nissan managed to wriggle into simcity with the leaf...!
