The Chevrolet SS NASCAR is a NASCAR-converted Chevrolet SS/Holden Commodore SS (VF) race car. The Generation-6 model is used in the Asphalt series.
The Chevrolet SS is a Holden Commodore SS (VF) rebadged for the American market. It is a full-size car that has been produced by Holden since June 2013. It is the second and last significant restyled iteration of the final fourth generation of the Holden Commodore.
It is sized between the Malibu and the Impala in the Chevrolet lineup and also fills the void left behind by the Pontiac G8 after the Pontiac brand was discontinued in 2010. It went on sale as a 2014 model year vehicle in late 2013, designed and manufactured by GM Holden in Australia. It is Chevrolet's first rear-wheel drive V8 sedan available to the general public in seventeen years since the fourth-generation Chevrolet Caprice and the seventh-generation Impala SS. The vehicle was unveiled during Speedweeks in Daytona Beach, Florida, in February 2013.
The Chevrolet SS NASCAR uses a 5.9L naturally aspirated V8 engine with the power rated at 725 hp (541 kW) and torque at 450 ft·lb (610 N·m).
The version of the vehicle in the Asphalt series is a Chevrolet SS-branded race car that competes in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. Part of the new Generation 6 cars designed for better manufacturer identity and driver safety, it made its debut during the Sprint Unlimited non-championship race in 2013, which it won with driver Kevin Harvick. In its first championship race the following week, Jimmie Johnson raced one to victory in the 2013 Daytona 500 after Danica Patrick took pole in her SS. In both years of its NASCAR competition, the SS has been used to win the driver's, owner's, and manufacturer's championships. As of August 2015, it has won 48 out of 94 races it has competed in, as compared to 23 by both the Toyota Camry and Ford Fusion.
The Holden Commodore / Chevrolet SS was discontinued in 2018 with GM stating that it has no plans to replace it.
Asphalt 8: Airborne
The Chevrolet SS NASCAR, shortened just to Chevrolet SS, was added in the Car Mastery Update as a high-end Class B car with the following rank statistics:
- Starting rank: 1447
- MAX rank: 1579 (+132)
- MAX+PRO rank: 1665 (+86)
- Tuning Kit bonus: +31
- Stock to MAX+PRO rank difference: 218
- Nitro Efficiency: 7/13/17
The Chevrolet SS's primary advantage is its top speed, better than most cars in Class B. It has the same top speed as the McLaren P1™ at stock and MAX; however, the SS has its Forced Coefficient set to 100%, so its MAX+PRO top speed with a Tuning Kit is increased by the same amount from MAX as MAX from stock. The SS, as heavy as it sounds, faces sub-par acceleration, worse than the Lamborghini Estoque and Ferrari F50. However, the SS, owing to its race car identity, handles and drifts well, better than the Kepler Motion. However, it skids often so caution must be exercised when holding the car at full steering lock.
The Chevrolet SS is mostly a collector's item as the ONUK Sazan LM, Ferrari F50, and cars above them can beat it. On the flip side, the SS may sometimes dominate in certain events; if the player doesn't have the SS, the Pagani Zonda R is a cheaper alternative. The Chevrolet SS is also useful for the Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport's Enduro Double Down event, the details of which can be seen here.
The Chevrolet SS had an original buying price of 800,000, later increased to 890,000 or 5,800, reduced to 425,000 or 3,500 and increased again to 500,000 or 3,800. On the 2019 Holiday Update, the price was removed and the Chevrolet SS had to be bought for 500,000. As of the Fifteenth Anniversary Update it costs 880,000.
As of the 2019 Spring Update, upgrades cost 1,800,000 while Pro Kits require 600,800, 28 of each Class B Part, 16 Initial & Early Techs each, 36 Mid-Techs and 48 V8 Engines.
The Chevrolet SS NASCAR's Asphalt Nitro rendition is the same as its Asphalt 8: Airborne version but with its full name.
The Chevrolet SS NASCAR is the highest-ranked Class B car in the game.
