PC XL8 R is the signature vehicle of the rare distribution of the now-defunct PC Accelerator magazine company. The vehicle's files can also be found buried in the files of the Developer Version of Re-Volt with a missing Parameters.txt file. Despite its parameters are not present in the Developer's version, oddly it can be found in the carinfo.txt of the CGW demo, in the place of Aquasonic — its visual counterpart.
In the parameters found in the Carinfo.txt of v0.01cgw, PC XL8 R was rated under the Pro rating. This is unusual as the car is clocks at 32 mph (52 kph). The car was possibly planned as a Rookie car in the PC Accelerator demo, which unfortunately has not been found yet by the community.
- The car's name is an obvious play in the phonetics of the publisher's name.
