In the earliest build, "BIANCA CITY" is called "BA CITY" when starting a race. Also, the player's vehicle is invulnerable and automatically accelerates and drives very fast (around 600km/h). The player cannot use the brakes to slow down at all.

In the vehicle selection menu, the earliest build also features unique, localized text for the vehicle names. For example:
