The Peugeot Onyx is a concept hypercar by Peugeot.
The Onyx boasts a carbon fiber structure that consists of only 12 components as weighs only 220 pounds with the car weighing a total 2,400 pounds. The car also has built-in Lithium-ion batteries to power an 80 hp electric motor. Twin NACA ( National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics ) ducts provide airflow to the engine and the car uses a power train and suspension from Peugeot Sport, once responsible for the now defunct Le Mans racing program. An active rear spoiler similar to the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 is used in assisting with deceleration.
The Peugeot Onyx was added in the Full Throttle Update as a mid Class A car with the following rank statistics:
- Stock rank: 2,855 ( 50)
- rank: 3,026
- rank: 3,226 ( 23)
- rank: 3,413 ( 27)
- rank: 3,668 ( 36)
- rank: 3,917 ( 52)
- rank: 4,145 ( 62)
The Peugeot Onyx is similar to Aston Martin Valhalla but with better handling, lower top speed, and worse nitro efficiency.
The Onyx's blueprints are available during its Unleashed event. 1 blueprint can be obtained from the Heatwave career season.
The Peugeot Onyx behaves exactly the same as its Asphalt 8: Airborne rendition, with the only difference being the price.
The Onyx's acceleration is at best medium-high level. The car primarily excels in top speed and handling, especially due to its low, sub-2,500 lb weight. The one thing to be careful of is its unique nitro consumption combination of 7/14/17; at Level 2/Perfect Nitro, the car's nitro drains slightly more quickly than other cars with the same nitro stat, like the W Motors Fenyr Supersport and Ferrari FF, which are 7/13/17.
