  • Price
  • Speed
  • Handling
  • Acceleration
  • Braking

These stats can be found alongside each car in the Autoshow menu. Select the manufacturer you wish to search for, and then as you hover over each vehicle a stats bar will appear on the bottom left of the screen.

After seeing what’s the best car, with the best stats, for your budget – make your purchase!

You could get a load of deals in the Auction House as well, so always keep an eye out.
