In order to unlock the Runway Racer skin and the items associated with it, you will need to complete the Runway Racer Goals, a set of in-game quests and challenges that are linked to your Account Level, added in the new v27.10 update.

Each goal in this set of quests corresponds to your Account Level progression and holds the keys to unlocking different components of the Velocity Chic bundle. The milestones are listed below:

  • Earning 35 Account Levels unlocks the Auto Clutch Back Bling.
  • Earning 50 Account Levels unlocks the Runway Racer skin.

A unique aspect of this bundle is the new Auto Clutch Back Bling, which is among the many items in the game that have faced an age restriction. The back bling is only available in game modes with a 12+ age rating, reflecting Fortnite's new age rating feature and the commitment to age-appropriate content.

How to gain Account Levels for the new Velocity Chic bundle

The key to claiming these new items lies in accumulating XP, and in turn gaining Account Levels. You can elevate your Fortnite it by earning XP through various in-game activities and quests. As you play, the XP will contribute to your account level, subsequently unlocking rewards in the Velocity Chic set.

You can consistently stay on top of your journey to unlock these cosmetics by monitoring your Account Levels on the Runway Racer Goals screen, conveniently located in the Quests tab in the game's menu. This tracking allows you to stay aware of your progress towards unlocking each component of the new bundle.

You can embark on the quest for this new cosmetic set added in Chapter 4 Season 5 by going through the Runway Racer Goals, which will allow you to showcase your Fortnite finesse with this stylish and sleek ensemble.
