On October 27, 2019, Falkrum stated that the Soliad Wendover, at that time the only known vehicle still in development, would not be the next car in-game. He hinted at another vehicle coming before it, but provided no details. In the devblog post for the 0.18 update, released on December 9, 2019, a teaser screenshot of the Vivace's Cherrier hood badge (though neither names had at that point been revealed) was included at the very end. Ten days later, a video simply titled "Teaser" was uploaded to the official YouTube channel, featuring a Vivace shrouded in darkness. The Vivace was officially revealed on February 11, 2020, with a lengthy devblog post providing information on its development and planned features, and several screenshots and videos of the vehicle in-game.
- The Vivace is the first official car to have an inline five-cylinder engine.
- The Vivace was originally intended to be a Hirochi, but it was decided that a new French brand would allow for more interesting design options.
- The aforementioned teaser image of the hood badge (pictured in the gallery above) led to the car receiving several nicknames, namely ”the RR car” and “the Reverse card car” (named for the Reverse card in the card game Uno, which the badge resembles).
- "Vivace" is pronounced "vi-vas."
