Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Careful, you'll lose an eye.
This page or section needs more images.
There's a whole lotta words here, but not enough pictures. Please fix this.
Specifically: Graphics comparison between the original game and Wild Run.

Unused Cars

The reasons for these cars' removal is unknown, but could be due to licensing issues or time constraints.

Chevrolet Impala Drag Spec

This car is seen in promotional images, in-game (in the salt flats Drag trial completion menu background) and even for a few seconds in the Wild Run launch trailer, but it cannot be bought or used.

Unused Graphics

Audi

TCAudiLogo.png

An unused Audi logo was left in the game. This, along with some promotional images featuring the Audi TT, suggests that Audi pulled out at some point during development.

Land Rover

It seems like Land Rover was cut at an early stage of development as none of their cars appear in concept art nor promotional art. The only thing that remains in the game is their logo.

Unused Monster Truck Arena

There is an unused monster truck arena found in the Wild Run Beta, but it appears to be untextured and only for testing purposes. It can be seen at 14:59 in the video below:

Revisional Differences

The Crew went through many updates throughout its life cycle, improving the game by a lot: a graphics revision, New HUD, new missions, cars, bikes, more specifications support, and lots of bug fixes (too many bug fixes).

New HUD is at the bottom while old HUD is at the top.

The Wild Run update included 3 new specifications (Drift, Monster Truck, Drag) and bikes but you had to buy the Wild Run Expansion pack to get access to them while the graphics revision, more specifications support for cars and bug fixes were released for free as an update.

The Calling All Units update added police cars, new police missions, crates that would give you money and random cars/bikes (police or street race), but the police missions and police cars were locked behind an expansion pack also called Calling All Units.

There are also different title screens for each update.

Note:The title screen changes with every major update and doesn't require the expansion packs.
