The Nitrox Afterburner is a special form of the Nitrox, used to speed up at velocities exceeding the standard formula. Dr. Tezla developed this version of the Nitrox formula and equipped Reverb with it. The usage of the Nitron Afterburner was first seen when Vert Wheeler used it to catch up with Gelorum in his second, but unescapable test of the Racing Realms in The Ultimate Race. Vert would later use it again to escape from the Racing Drones and the Acceledrome's destruction.
The Nitrox Afterburner was a special, white device containing a highly potent, blue colored-form of the standard Nitrox. When used, the user's car executes a jet-thrust wheely as a blue aura glows over it and the blue flames are emited from the back of the vehicle.

This form of Nitrox seems to be made through a very complicated process with chemicals, due to its limited use and supply. However, it seems to give speeds over the normal speed, thus its "Afterburner" effect it gives. The creation of the flameable and volatile fuel is a huge mystery as it was a gift from Tezla and nothing else is mentioned about its formula or reasons it had to be made. It could be though that Tezla made this fuel as a "Last Resort", thus saving it for a special occassion it had to be needed.
- Visually, the Nitrox Afterburner is similar to how the Nitrox 2 used to look like in Hot Wheels: World Race, as the entire car glows and it does a wheelie.
