The Buick Avista Concept is a concept 2+2 coupe built by Buick, first unveiled at the 2016 North American International Auto Show on January 10, 2016. It debuted in Asphalt 8: Airborne.

Description[]

The exterior, finished in superior blue, boasts a low-slung flowing pillarless coupe design with a sloping fastback roof. The front fascia is said to have been inspired by the 1954 Buick Wildcat II concept car. On the inside, the seats are upholstered in mist gray leather, complete with carbon fiber aluminium accents to give the driver's compartment a more sporty appearance. The dashboard features a wide touchscreen previewing a "future version" of Buick's IntelliLink infotainment system. The doors and interior components were 3D-printed.

The Avista concept car is related to the Cadillac ATS-V and sixth generation Chevrolet Camaro by sharing the same rear-wheel-drive Alpha platform. Its chassis utilizes Magnetic Ride Control to provide more precise handling. Power comes from a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine producing 400 hp, backed by an 8-speed automatic transmission. Its engine comes equipped with cylinder deactivation to improve fuel efficiency.

The concept car was met with critical acclaim, winning the 2016 EyesOn Design award (also won by the Buick Avenir in the previous year), as well as being named "Best Future Concept" by The Detroit News. The fastback concept was applauded for its perfectly proportioned rear-drive stance.

Although the car was merely intended as a design study, GM was reportedly thinking about putting the Avista or a similar car into production, according to a Buick representative. If produced, it is likely to retain the platform and engine from the concept. A new report stated that GM is reconsidering the Avista for production as a new halo vehicle for Buick, citing the great fanfare generated by its introduction at the Detroit Auto Show.

The Avista nameplate, taken from vista (sight in Italian), was previously filed for trademark registration by General Motors on September 22, 2015.

Summary[]

The Buick Avista Concept was added in the Lunar New Year 2017 Update as a high Class D car with the following statistics:

  • Starting rank: 1075
    • This was changed to 1112 in the Showdown Update.
  • MAX rank: 1254 (+179)
    • This was changed to 1250 (+138) in the Showdown Update.
  • MAX+PRO rank: 1370 (+116)
    • This was changed to 1344 (+94) in the Showdown Update.
  • 0808 Elite Tuning rank: 1342 (-28)
    • This was changed to 1373 (+29) in the Showdown Update.
  • Tuning Kit bonus: +41
    • This was changed to +34 in the Showdown Update.
  • Stock to MAX+PRO rank difference: 295
    • This was changed to 232 in the Showdown Update.
  • Upgrade rank percentages: 20/25/20/35
  • Nitro Efficiency: 6/11.5/16

Performance[]

Despite the Avista's maximum rank being the highest for Class D without Elite tuning, it can only compete with the SUBARU IMPREZA WRX STI as an Elite version with faster acceleration and improved nitro efficiency. The mismatch between the rating and performance is due to an overemphasis on acceleration. While by no means mediocre, it is still in practice slower than the Ariel Atom V8, DS E-TENSE, Mazda RX-8, Donkervoort D8 GTO and Hyundai i30 N as all cars have additional performance to back up their acceleration. The RX-8 and i30 N have a higher top speed and better handling while the D8 GTO, Atom V8 and E-TENSE are unrivaled in terms of acceleration and nitro durations at (4/8/12), (6/8/10) and (5/10/15). The nanoFlowcell QUANTINO is also faster than the Avista due to its superior total speed, handling, and nitro efficiency.

Additionally, due to the Avista's comparatively large size and weight to the RX-8 and D8 GTO, it suffers from poor handling and a wide drift radius, making technical tracks such as Sector 8, Venice and Dubai harder to navigate through. While it is capable of mid-drift boosting, it is still inferior to the RX-8 and QUANTINO.

Official review[]

This is the official review of the Buick Avista Concept on the Asphalt YouTube channel, made by Viesky Hypersonic and published on February 5, 2017:

Time to reach end of Tokyo straight: 9.000s

Perfect nitro duration: 9.110s

Triple nitro duration: 6.350s

Ice Cave lap time: 1.25.41s

Final verdict: "This car has a good acceleration and competitive handling performance, quick drifting is very easy with the Avista. It is definitely a useful car to own!"

Usage[]

The Avista is only a collector's car as it cannot compete with any of its aforementioned rivals and is similarly useless in Events. Furthermore, the Avista does not appear in any collection.

Price[]

The Avista originally cost Credits 335,000 or Tokens 2,050 to buy. It was increased to Credits 425,000 or Tokens 2,400 on January 19, 2018 (it costs Tokens 2,400 without a credits option for accounts made after November 13, 2017 until the price change). Then in the 2019 Holiday Update, the Credits price was removed and the tokens price was increased to Tokens 2,500. As of the Fifteenth Anniversary Update it costs Tokens 1,900.

Tune-ups cost Credits 1,200 and took 1h 30 min to finish. The Sixth Anniversary Update removed the car's Elite status.
