Overview

The purpose of this blog is to keep track of the gold requirement added with each upgrade. If you enjoy playing RR3 then it probably isn't a good idea to read this unless you are already at 100% completion or are independently wealthy.

Each update has a summary of costs, a description of my experience of the update and a table breaking the costs down by car into :

  • win - gold needed to win the car (can be skill dependent for Special Events)
  • upg - gold needed to upgrade the car (to complete career series)
  • buy - gold needed to buy the car if it isn't won
  • series - gold rewards in career series
  • special - gold rewards in special events
  • garage - gold required to maintain full garage (win - special)
  • 100% - gold required to maintain 100% career (upgrade - special - series)
  • Total - gold requirement added into the game for new player (i.e. who missed the special events)

These costs only record the new gold added into the game so an existing car only in a new LTS only has a win cost and a special reward.

Everyone earns about the following gold each release:

  • Daily ad gold - a minimum of 210 gold per release (5 per day)
  • Daily bonus - about 165 gold per release (110 per month), double (330) if elite player

This means that the minimum gold you get for free is 375 per release or 540 as an elite player.

At the moment you can also get more gold by watching the R$ adverts up to a maximum of 20 per day making a possible 840 gold per release from free adverts. So, in theory, you can earn 950 - 1270 gold per release without racing.

Other ways to earn gold are:

  • WTTT groups A to H - 300, 100, 50, 25, 18, 13, 8 and 5 gold per week, respectively
  • Join a Team - 50 to 100 gold per week
  • Online Multiplayer - 3- 50 gold per week based on points
  • Farming - 6000 fame points ~= 1 gold

A standard player who isn't in a gold winning team and can't get into group C WTTT gets a minimum of 375 gold per release. An elite player, in a gold winning team who can get into group B WTTT can get about 1440 gold without doing any farming. The following table shows a few combinations and illustrates that an elite player who collects 15 gold ads, is WTTT B and in a top 100 team probably doesn't need to farm to keep up 100% completion. Good news?

Player Type Daily Ads Daily Bonus Weekly TTT Weekly Team Total
Base player, no WTTT, no team gold 5 165 375
Base player, maximum mining 20 165 1005
Elite player, no WTTT, no team gold 5 330 540
Elite player, WTTT C, no team gold 5 330 50 840
Elite player, WTTT B, no team gold 5 330 100 1140
Elite player, WTTT B, top 100 team 5 330 100 50 1440
Elite player, mining 15, WTTT B, top 100 team 15 330 100 50 1860

Of course you can always buy gold from FM/EA. I would recommend this only if you are very rich or you get a much better rate than the standard one. Personally, I feel the game is worth about £30 a year to me but that should enable me to keep pace with all the new gold without having to work too hard.

There are 4 new cars to be won (first 4 in table below in time order of LTS start) and 2 new Exclusive series (last 2 cars in table). The upgrade costs in the table for the MERCEDES-BENZ CLK-LM are based on newly bought car and do not include upgrades already required to win it.

Update 7.1.0 2019 Nascar

Summary of event costs:

  • 852 Icon Gold minimum required to win all the new cars
  • 1310 Icon Gold added for upgrades to get to 100%
  • 1500 Icon Gold added to buy the new cars (if not won)
  • 188 Icon Gold added to be won in new series
  • 275 Icon Gold to be won in special events (excluding 6th Birthday Celebration for now)
  • 577 Icon Gold net required to maintain / reach full garage
  • 837 Icon Gold net required to maintain / reach 100%

For a short 3 week update, this is expensive in terms of gold required to maintain 100% (279 Icon Gold per week) largely due to 2 new Exclusive series, but not so expensive to win the cars (192 Icon Gold per week). However, it is worth noting that many will only get 1 or even no cars as they will not longer be available after 2/4/19, thus not contributing to statistics

Additional Standard Rewards:

  • 188 Icon Gold Daily bonus (elite)
  • 105 Icon Gold 5 ads per day
  • 32 Icon Gold For participation in WTTT and OMP

And for those that don't have the LTS cars:

There are 3 new cars to be won (first 3 in table below in time order of LTS start), 1 LTS for existing cars, and 2 new Exclusive series(last car in table)

Update 7.0.5 R3 Spec-tacular

Summary of event costs:

  • 917 Icon Gold minimum required to win all the new cars
  • 1876 Icon Gold added for upgrades to get to 100%
  • 1680 Icon Gold added to buy the new cars (if not won)

  • 455 Icon Gold to be won in special events
  • 462 Icon Gold net required to maintain / reach full garage
  • 1088 Icon Gold net required to maintain / reach 100%

This is a fairly cheap release to win the cars, but the Icon Gold required to maintain 100% is quite high. At 282 Icon Gold per week, the cost of maintaining 100% is similar to some of the recent releases.

Additional Standard Rewards:

  • 216 Icon Gold Daily bonus (elite)
  • 140 Icon Gold 5 ads per day
  • 32 Icon Gold For participation in WTTT and OMP

And for those that don't have the LTS cars:

Update 7.0.0 Circuit of the Americas

Summary of event costs:

  • 1379 Icon Gold minimum required to win all the new cars
  • 2731Icon Gold added for upgrades to get to 100%
  • 2510Icon Gold added to buy the new cars (if not won)
  • 673Icon Gold added to be won in new series
  • 435Icon Gold to be won in special events
  • 703Icon Gold net required to maintain / reach full garage
  • 1620Icon Gold net required to maintain / reach 100%

This was a cheaper update to get all the new cars but the upgrade cost for 100% series completions was still high, largely thanks to the FERRARI FXX K EVO upgrade requirements. However, for those who have the McLAREN MP4/4 and McLAREN MP4-X already FU, there is some offset. A chance for many to save some gold or use it in the seasonal sales.

Additional Standard Rewards:

  • 378Icon Gold Daily bonus (elite)
  • 245Icon Gold 5 ads per day
  • 56Icon Gold For participation in WTTT and OMP

For those that don't already have the flashback cars:

Note: The flashback are minimum Icon Gold requirements. The minimum requirements are based on Speed Master Real.

And for those that don't have the LTS cars:

There are 7 new cars to be won (first 7 in table below in time order of LTS start), 3 LTS for existing cars, 2 new Exclusive series, 3 Flashbacks, and one series with recompilation bonus (last car in table)

Update 6.6.1 Euro Masters

Please note that this info is based on Upgrades Strategy and event completed to date (29/10/18). Details may need to be revised later during V6.6.

Summary of event costs:

  • 1733Icon Gold minimum required to win all the new cars
  • 2974Icon Gold added for upgrades to maintain 100%
  • 3280Icon Gold added to buy the new cars (if not won)
  • 644Icon Gold added to be won in new series
  • 570Icon Gold to be won in special events (excluding time trial events)
  • 1163Icon Gold net required to maintain / reach full garage
  • 1760Icon Gold net required to maintain / reach 100%

Many required 440Icon Gold (33333333) to complete King of the Ring, 75Icon Gold more than shown in the table

Again, this was an expensive update with the 3rd Icon Gold most expensive cost to win cars and the 5th most expensive to maintain series completion.

Additional Standard Rewards:

  • 378Icon Gold Daily bonus (elite)
  • 245Icon Gold 5 ads per day
  • 56Icon Gold For participation in WTTT and OMP

For those that don't already have the flashback cars:

Note: The flashback are minimum Icon Gold requirements. However, The Sixth Element (v6.6) and Reign Supreme (v6.6) should be winnable for many without spending Icon Gold. A more realistic amount to complete Le Mans: Ferrari (v6.6) for lesser drivers than Real Racing 3 Speed Junkie is 155Icon Gold.

And for those that don't have the LTS cars:

Note: FORD GT LE MANS is shown here to get rewards from 2016 Season (Endurance GT Racing), which is different car than recommended in the upgrade strategy. However, based on V6.5 and before, this car needed to be upgraded to PR90 whereas the FERRARI 488 GTE didn't need to be upgraded to this level.

Update 6.5.0 Competition Update

Summary of event costs:

  • 1913+Icon Gold minimum required to win all the new cars
  • 2992Icon Gold added for upgrades to get to 100%
  • 4040Icon Gold added to buy the new cars (if not won)
  • 662Icon Gold added to be won in new series
  • 670Icon Gold to be won in special events
  • 1243Icon Gold net required to maintain / reach full garage
  • 1660Icon Gold net required to maintain / reach 100%


Additional Standard Rewards:

  • 378Icon Gold Daily bonus (elite)
  • 245Icon Gold 5 ads per day
  • 56Icon Gold For participation in WTTT and OMP

Please be aware some of the numbers below are still unconfirmed and based on the Strategy page(s).

There was 203Icon Gold for completing Prototypes 2015 Season, 2016 Season (SuperCars) and 2017 Season (SuperCars) , new series with existing cars.

The cost of maintaining full garage is 1913+Icon Gold. I've used Real Racing 3 Speed Junkie lowest win prices for Motorfiesta 2 but for most it will be more expensive.

Without considering the WTTT, OMP, levelling up etc, this means a net cost of 1660Icon Gold to maintain 100% completion, so a very expensive update (i.e. ~40Icon Gold per day needed excluding rewards).

For those that don't already have the flashback cars:

Note: The flashback minimums are from Speed Master Real and ME7 lowest win prices, most will need more Icon Gold than this

  • 2,223Icon Gold added for upgrades to maintain 100%
  • 2,940Icon Gold added to buy the new cars (if not won)

There was 281Icon Gold for completing or recompleting series with existing cars (i.e. Endurance Legends, Prototypes 2014 Season, Prototype Exhibition, Group C 1988 Season, Group C 1991 Season, GT Racing Exhibition, Formula E Exhibition, Season 3 (2016-17), and Supercar Classic Clash)

The cost of maintaining 100% is 1,114Icon Gold. I've used Chronic Avidness lowest win prices but for most it will be more expensive.

Without considering the WTTT, OMP, levelling up etc, this means a net cost of 575Icon Gold, so a reasonably expensive update (i.e.~14Icon Gold per day needed excluding rewards).

For those that don't already have the flashback cars:

Note: The flashback minimums are from Chronic Avidness lowest win prices, most will need more Icon Gold than this

Update 6.3.0 Le Mans (2018)

Summary of event costs:

  • 972+Icon Gold minimum required to win all the new cars
  • 1,564Icon Gold added for upgrades to get to 100%
  • 2,630Icon Gold added to buy the new cars (if not won)
  • 429Icon Gold added to be won in new series
  • 515Icon Gold to be won in special events
  • 457+Icon Gold net required to maintain / reach full garage
  • 620Icon Gold net required to maintain / reach 100%

Additional Standard Rewards:

  • 364Icon Gold Daily bonus (elite)
  • 245Icon Gold 5 ads per day

The cost of maintaining 100% is only 620Icon Gold (plus any gold wasted on the NISSAN R390 GT1 and LAMBORGHINI HURACÁN LP 610-4) then the bonus and ads makes this just a -11Icon Gold net update. Any level ups, WTTT rewards will be pure profit. Seems wrong but the numbers add up. I've used Chronic Avidness lowest win prices but I doubt many will do it that cheaply.

For those that don't already have the flashback cars:

And for those that don't have the LTS cars:

This wasn't that expensive an update in the end though the 100% price is quite high. The win price for the FERRARI TESTAROSSA is unrealistic for most people. I fully upgraded mine, everyone my age would if they could. Given the way FM have changed flashbacks, I decided to take the win price of the flashback cars out the table and only used the repeat rewards. If you don't have the car then search down for the car and you'll get the data from the original SE. That's much simpler for me. So all things being said, I'm going to be less than 700Icon Gold down in this update and with a fully upgraded Testarossa.

Win prices for existing cars are 216 for FERRARI F12BERLINETTA, 274 for FERRARI FXX K, 95 for LAMBORGHINI CENTENARIO LP 770-4 and 0 for KOENIGSEGG ONE:1

Update 6.1.0 Daytona 500 and Aston Martin

Summary of event costs:

  • 1,200+Icon Gold minimum required to win all the new cars
  • 1,160Icon Gold added for upgrades to get to 100%
  • 2,405Icon Gold added to buy the new cars (if not won)
  • 752Icon Gold added to be won in new series
  • 360Icon Gold to be won in special events
  • 840Icon Gold net required to maintain / reach full garage
  • 48Icon Gold net required to maintain / reach 100%

Additional Standard Rewards:

  • 292Icon Gold Daily bonus (elite)
  • 210Icon Gold 5 ads per day

All of the data is now available. This is very gold positive for anyone who was 100% complete in NASCAR and Formula E before the update, just 48 gold required to maintain 100% but 840 required to maintain a full garage. 840 is not a difficult target to obtain with bonus, ads and level ups. FM provided a lot more information in this release and this made collating the data much easier. Hopefully this will continue.

This is a very busy release. If you aim for one series reward per day from the new series alone, you will be short one series reward by the end of the release (i.e. you have to get two series rewards on one day). If you did the same for SE and LTS you would have 27 out of 43 days (26 really as you have to get 8 rewards in 7 days).

Update 6.0.7 Classics

  • 828Icon Gold minimum required to win all the new cars
  • 480Icon Gold added for upgrades to get to 100%
  • 0Icon Gold added to buy the new cars (if not won)
  • 200Icon Gold added to be won in new series
  • 110+Icon Gold to be won in special events

  • 170Icon Gold net required to maintain / reach 100%

Additional Standard Rewards:

  • 166Icon Gold Daily bonus (elite)
  • 110Icon Gold 5 ads per day

So if you are 100% complete then this should be a free gold event. The net cost of upgrading the Ford and Aston Martin for the two new Exclusive Series is only 280Icon Gold and there is 276Icon Gold in ads and bonuses for elite players. The bonuses for the Jaguar and McLaren will push this into the black. The only fly in the ointment is having to upgrade the Miura for its LTS but then if you have the car, you don't need to run the LTS. The gold to win the cars and full garage cost is only relevant if you don't have the cars.

So is this a step change? Over 4000GC required to maintain 100%. Full garage not looking overly expensive but I feel a few people might drop out of the 100% club this time. I'm only able to stay there because my Ferrari LaFerrari were already fully upgraded for WTTT.

This is looking like a very expensive update with 2300Icon Gold required to maintain 100% completion. That's too rich for most peoples tastes. Three cars need to be fully upgraded, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 and McLaren 720S Coupe for new exclusive series and the new Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO for Trofeo Trials. The other two cars are looking like one or two upgrades off fully upgraded. Where has all the fun gone?

This one is looking a lot more expensive than the last one. It looks like the rewards during the first few weeks will pay for the McLaren upgrades but after that the gold spend just snowballs.

Update 5.4.0 Mazda

I'm going to change the summary in this update to include standard and non-standard rewards. This should give a better picture of the delta cost of each update. Costs Summary of event costs:

  • 1,237+Icon Gold minimum required to win all the cars
  • 2,108Icon Gold added for upgrades to get to 100%
  • 1,825Icon Gold added to buy the new cars (if not won)

  • 245Icon Gold 5 ads per day

Even if you didn't win the Jaguar for the minimum you should still be up on gold for winning the new cars. I like the new Mazda cars, they are different, but overall not the most exciting update. The Veneno is the killer for those that don't have it.

  • 3,580Icon Gold added to buy the new cars (if not won)

This release may need to be renamed as the Money Pit. I'd recommend winning all the new cars or this will be a very expensive release. As the Porsche and Jaguar have the same upgrade costs you can pick either one. Toyota Camry has a win price of 500 as it has to be bought and can't be won. Not that expensive an update in the end but if you didn't win the cars, will cost you lots in the future.

A very cheap upgrade all in all, almost gold positive for people that needed all the cars. If you only needed the three new cars then it was extremely gold positive with upgrade discounts. Add in the three free Formula E cars and their 50% upgrade discounts then this was a very generous update.

Note: I've added 45 gold to win the Aston Martin Vantage GTE if you don't already own it. It doesn't add anything to the gold in game but it is the cheapest way to win the car.

Update 5.1.0 Daytona 500 2017

Summary of event costs:

  • 1,353+Icon Gold minimum required to win new cars
  • 1,910Icon Gold added for upgrades to get to 100%
  • 2,140Icon Gold added to buy the new cars (if not won)
  • 373Icon Gold added to be won in new series
  • 475Icon Gold to be won in special events
  • 1,062Icon Gold net required to maintain / reach 100%

Whilst the total to win new cars looks rather high in this release, this was mainly from the Bugatti and McLaren LTS events that were already in the game so if you already had them then the cost to win the new cars was actually only 507Icon Gold. The total amount of upgrades added to get to 100% career was quite high at 1,910 but the net amount was only 1,062 which is quite reasonable. A reasonably well balanced update with something for everyone.

Summary of event costs:

  • 817+Icon Gold minimum required to win new cars
  • 1269Icon Gold added for upgrades to get to 100%
  • 1295Icon Gold added to buy the new cars (if not won)

  • 240Icon Gold added to be won in special events
  • 649Icon Gold net required to maintain / reach 100%

Finally a cheap update arrives. This one looks like fun, no gauntlet and only LTS events for reasonably low cost cars. Only 1269 predicted as the required upgrades to maintain 100% and with rewards that could easily come down below 700 gold (it did, 649). There is a suspicion that the update might only be 5 weeks long not 6. Bring it on.

Update 5.0.0 Formula E

Summary of event costs:

  • 1,031+Icon Gold minimum required to win new cars
  • 2,764Icon Gold added for upgrades to get to 100%
  • 2,750Icon Gold added to buy the new cars (if not won)

  • 1,729Icon Gold net required to maintain / reach 100%

The Porsche and Corvette are already in the game so no additional purchase cost added for these. The Corvette event required 272 upgrades to complete, if you didn't win it the last time this event was run, but doesn't need any additional upgrades to complete career with it. The Formula E cars were expensive but they are completely different from anything else in the game and the Formula E events are quite enjoyable. Shame about the Hong Kong track but it's a challenge for sure.

Update 4.7.0 McLaren Overload

Summary of event costs:

  • 311+ Icon Gold minimum required to win new cars
  • 3,003+ Icon Gold added for upgrades to get to 100%
  • 2,175 Icon Gold added to buy the new cars (if not won)
  • 607+ Icon Gold added to be won in new series
  • 210+ Icon Gold added to be won in special events
  • 2,186+ Icon Gold net required to maintain / reach 100%

Note: MP4-X win price is two skips...

As predicted this is another reasonably expensive upgrade with over 3000Icon Gold added to the upgrade path again. Nearly half of this is for upgrading the MP-4X. The LaFerrari and 599 GTO events will be effectively upgrade discounts for those that already own the cars and therefore non-mandatory.

Update 4.6.0 Bathurst

Summary of event costs:

  • 362+ Icon Gold minimum required to win new cars
  • 3,664 Icon Gold added for upgrades to get to 100%
  • 2,670 Icon Gold added to buy the new cars (if not won)
  • 787 Icon Gold added to be won in new series (mainly exclusive)
  • 540 Icon Gold added to be won in special events
  • 2,337 Icon Gold net required to maintain / reach 100%

For those that missed this update it will prove to be one of the most expensive. However, for the experienced players, it wasn't that bad. You didn't need to spend that much gold to win the new cars (though most spent a lot more than the 362 mentioned here) and whilst 2,337 is a big delta there was a lot of extra gold to be won with two double fame events on top of the special event and series rewards. The loss of 20 ads per day will be mourned for some time by those that still had it.

Update 4.5.0 Evolution of Jaguar

Summary of event costs:

  • 125 Icon Gold minimum required to win new cars (one skip)
  • 812 Icon Gold added for upgrades to get to 100%
  • 1,375 Icon Gold added to buy the new cars (if not won)
  • 282 Icon Gold added to be won in new series
  • 262 Icon Gold added to be won in special events
  • 268 Icon Gold net required to maintain / reach 100% (+20 for XJ220 skip)

All aboard the skylark, all change, all change. So thanks to RR3 Michael P we already know the purchase costs of the new cars. I've not include the SLS AMG GT3 as it's already in the game. Lowest gold cost for new cars this year. Thanks to a late patch by FM this is no longer a gold +ve event but is still the lowest costing this year. 128 gold to win the Jaguar is based on my memory. If anyone won it for less then feel free to claim your prize.

Note: XJ220 win price is a skip not an upgrade (hence 20 win price, 0 upgrade price). The cost of upgrading this car to win far exceeds the value of one skip. Note: The 57 gold attributed to the Porsche 911 Carrera S as part of this upgrade is actually won with the Porsche Caymen GT4 in Porsche Supremacy but this car isn't new in this release so isn't in the table.

Update 4.4.0 Ferrari & Lotus

Summary of event costs:

  • 306 Icon Gold minimum required to win all new cars
  • 2777 Icon Gold added for upgrades to get to 100%
  • 2580 Icon Gold added to buy the new cars (if not won)
  • 295 Icon Gold added to be won in new series
  • 266 Icon Gold added to be won in special events
  • 2216 Icon Gold required to maintain / reach 100%

So numbers are now complete. Not as bad as the last update but worse than 4.2. Not a bad upgrade, didn't require too much hair tearing out this time, low cost to winning all the cars but high upgrade costs for 100% completion.

Changed win price for Type 125 to zero as several good drivers managed with R$ only. However, most people will probably need 272 to win it

Update 4.3.0 Le Mans 2016 Update

Summary of event costs:

  • 774 Icon Gold minimum required to win all new cars (HardikVegeta owned Le Mans)
  • 3,315 Icon Gold added for upgrades to get to 100%
  • 3,200 Icon Gold added to buy the new cars (if not won)
  • 227 Icon Gold added to be won in new series
  • 410 Icon Gold added to be won in special events
  • 2,678 Icon Gold required to maintain / reach 100%

That means the net gold added to this event is 2,678 for existing players and an additional 3200 for new players. Given that most people will only get around 500-600 additional gold during this event that's over 2,000 gold needing to be purchased or farmed (2666 laps of Le Mans or 113 hours).

Update 4.2.0 Venom

Summary:

  • 0 Icon Gold minimum spend during update period (pretty sure this isn't right)
  • 1174 Icon Gold added for upgrades to get to 100% (assuming you win all the cars for free)
  • 1770 Icon Gold added to buy new cars (for those that didn't win them or new players)
  • 182 Icon Gold added to by won in new series
  • 235 Icon Gold added to be won in special events
  • 757 Icon Gold required to maintain / reach 100%

Whilst this felt like a brutal update in terms of the amount of gold required to maintain 100% it actually wasn't in the end compared to the 4.3 release. I haven't included the 75 gold that was gained if you already owned the Aston Martin and I put the cost of the Aston in for those that missed this event and therefore will need to buy it.
