- Assoluto is Italian for Absolute philosophy, the concept of an unconditional reality which transcends limited, conditional, everyday existence.
- In Ridge Racer 7, it is mentioned that Assoluto had a secret meeting with UFRA officials in a restaurant near their team's headquarters.
- The fact that Assoluto is founded by a (eponymous) racer might be a reference to Enzo Ferrari, which was also a race car driver himself. Ironically, Rivelta/Soldat, presumed to be rivals of Assoluto, is often considered as Ridge Racer's counterparts to Ferrari.
