Cars: Fast as Lightning is a customizable, time-waiting, city-building and racing game that was released on iOS, Android and Windows Phone on October 9, 2014 (but was released early, the night before on October 8 in some countries), featuring all the popular main characters from the Cars franchise.
Cars: Fast as Lightning works similarly to games like CityVille, Car Town and Disney Infinity, where players can customize racing arenas with accessories earned by winning races and gaining experience points. Each car has a different set of races, as well as their own track. In order to unlock new characters, players must earn stickers by winning races.
Players can also create their own unique town, with buildings that produce additional gold that the player has to wait for a certain amount of minutes or hours. There is also the option to create a unique race track using different types of track pieces, as well as more buildings that players can trick off of to gain experience points.
There are a total of 30 playable characters in the game. Once the tutorial is completed, the first character, Todd Marcus, is automatically unlocked. To unlock more characters, the player will need to earn all of the characters' stickers, which can be earned by winning races with the previous car.

- While in build mode in the beta version, the song playing is the main menu theme from Race-O-Rama.
- The Ornament Valley Airport appears as a building in Radiator Springs, which is a reference to Mater-National Championship.
- Snot Rod's name is spelled as "SnotRod". Also, he does not talk; he just does sneezing, sniffling and laughing sounds, which is the same as Cars 2: The Video Game.
- One of Finn McMissile's paint job attires is the Airport Security, which is just the same as the second Cars film.
- Whilst the player unlocks Finn McMissile, it reveals that Finn's track is Todd's track.
- When meeting Yokoza, Mater makes a reference to the second film by mentioning his and McQueen's trip to Tokyo and hoping that he is not going to have any more wasabi, which he still refers to as "spicy pistachio ice cream". Also, Yokoza's track has a part inspired by the show McQueen and Mater watched during their flight to Tokyo in the film.
- A couple of screenshots, before the game was released, show that Bob Cutlass and Darrell Cartrip would appear in the commentator booth, but in the actual game, they do not actually appear.
- Archive recordings from Cars 2: The Video Game have been reused.
