The Formula E Gen2, also known as the Spark Gen2 (or the Formula E SRT05e) is an electric formula race car designed for use in the FIA Formula E Championship.
The car is the successor to the SRT_01E, and is constructed by Spark Racing Technology with assistance from Dallara, and was the base car used by all manufacturers and teams from the 2018-2019 FIA Formula E Championship until the 2021-22 Formula E World Championship. The car features a new 56 kWh battery from McLaren Applied Technologies, alongside the new Halo cockpit protection system, and is the first Formula E car capable of completing a full-race distance.
The Gen2 is a more advanced and futuristic version of the Formula E Gen1 car. The rollhoop section resembles the Gen1's rollhoop section, but with the new Halo head protection system. Like its predecessor, the Gen2 runs on Michelin Pilot Sport All-Weather tyres. Unlike Gen1, the Gen2 is capable of picking up the revolutionary ATTACK MODE introduced in the 2018-19 Formula E season. On the front of the car, the front nose is sharper, making the car more aerodynamic. On the front tyres, there are two tyre covers that ensure the airflow doesn't directly hit the front tyres. In lieu of a rear wing, the Gen2 features two struts with mini rear wings for downforce. The car can sprint from 0-100km/h in 2.8 seconds, and has a top speed of 280km/h, 40km/h faster than Gen1. The Gen2 car also has better handling and cornering capabilities.
Asphalt 8: Airborne
The Formula E Gen2 was added in the Formula E Update as a mid Class B car with the following statistics:
At full-PRO, the Formula E Gen2 has brisk acceleration, responsive handling, decent nitro efficiency and an average drifting radius. Being a Festival vehicle, it has a very low total top speed for its rank until it reaches the full-PRO upgrade level.
The Formula E Gen2 is useful in Multiplayer at full-PRO, with a rank of B1592. It competes against vehicles such as the Peugeot SR1 (B1599), Ducati XDiavel S (B1606) and Drako GTE (B1590). The Peugeot SR1 is generally superior to the Formula E Gen2 in Multiplayer, especially on longer tracks, due to its significantly longer-lasting nitro and slightly higher total top speed (given its rank). On shorter tracks, the two vehicles are roughly equally matched.
The Gen2 is obtainable by reaching Tier 8 of its Festival. If viewed in the Tag Racing car selection menu, it will show a price of 4,300, however, the option to buy the car is unavailable.
The Gen2 could be obtained during its Festival Special between May 18-22, 2020 as a reward for claiming 7 spins. Players who already own the car would receive 2 Kit cards instead.
