This event brought about one of the only cars that have a backstory, which is the Dark Elf.
"Some of Santa's elves broke rank and started their own dark workshop on the South Pole.. making evil stuffed animals and Next Gen gaming consoles that play themselves!! Luckily, [FTW]Travis was in the area, and stole their car. Enter.... The Dark Elf. You want it? Then you'd better use at least 1,000 nitros on the track with one of those other sweet Xmaxx rides..."
