The 2018 McLaren-Renault X2 is a concept Formula One race car based on the older McLaren-Honda MP4-X concept. It is featured in Asphalt 8: Airborne.

Description

While the X2 is visually identical to the preceeding MP4-X concept, various changes have been made to its design, including the livery used by the McLaren-Renault Formula One team in the 2018 Formula One season.

The 1.8 L (1,800 cc; 109.8 cu in) turbocharged hybrid V6 engine is imported from the McLaren-Renault MCL33 Formula One race car, but updated to make well over 1200 hp (895 kW) and 900 ft·lb (1220 N·m) of torque.

Although no official performance ratings have been given for this car, it is capable of 0 - 60 mph (97 km/h) in under 2.7 seconds and a top speed exceeding 255 mph (411 km/h), which are the performance figures used in the Asphalt games.

Performance

The 2018 McLaren X2 is a high-end Class S McLaren formula one car with 10 PRO upgrade levels and no MAX upgrades. The X2 features a very high maximum top speed of 315.0 mph (507.2 km/h), very fast acceleration, very good handling, a mediocre drifting radius and mediocre nitro efficiency. Additionally, the X2's long and flat hitbox allows it to jump off ramps at a relatively low height. The X2 is one of the best vehicles in the game. Although not as well-balanced as either the Lamborghini Centenario LP 770-4 or Koenigsegg Jesko due to having worse drifting and nitro efficiency, the X2 makes up for this with its very good handling, allowing it to take many turns without drifting or with minimal drifting. Other competitors of the X2 include the McLaren Senna, Ferrari FXX K, McLaren 600LT, Pagani Huayra BC, Aspark Owl, Koenigsegg Regera, McLaren MP4-31 and Apollo Intensa Emozione. The X2 qualifies for Season 10: McLaren Legends.

With a performance map based on that of the McLaren MP4-31, the 2018 McLaren X2 excels in top speed, handling, and acceleration, with a maximum real total speed of 316.8 mph/510.1 km/h at PRO with Tuning Kit boost on that can be reached in as fast as 2.3 seconds. It is slightly improved in the nitro efficiency department, with 7/13/16, also again compensated for with a higher raw top speed compared to its closest rivals. Its drift radius is noticeably wider than those of its rivals. With all statistics considered, the X2 currently ranks as one of the best cars in the game, tied with the Lamborghini Centenario LP 770-4 and McLaren 600LT.

Usage

Being one of the best S Class cars, the McLaren X2 can perform extremely well in TLEs, being able to achieve a top 25 easily with some skill when the car is at PRO (10/10/10/10). It is also the best McLaren car to date, topping the previous best McLaren MP4-31, and will hence dominate the leaderboard should a McLaren-only event appear.

The X2 is for advanced players, given the difficulty of its Championship event, as well as the difficulty in obtaining Custom Racing Engines. Players who have the resources available should invest in getting the X2 through its Championship event.

Multiplayer

The X2 can also perform extremely well in Multiplayer at PRO rank. At the start, its superior acceleration gives it an advantage that prevents other cars from knocking it down. If driven skillfully, it can reach very high placements in the Champion League and even make it as far as the Elite League.

Price & Availability

The X2 is only obtainable through the completion of its Championship event. It does have a hidden purchase price of Tokens 20,000, which would make it the third most expensive vehicle to purchase, behind the Apollo IE and premium 2015 GTA Spano. It was made available in the garage for Tokens 18,000 between January 22-29, 2019.

As of the Fifteenth Anniversary Update, upgrading the X2 requires 220x2018 McLaren X2 Kit and Fusion Coins 3,720,000.
