The Sbarro Sparta is an all-wheel-drive hybrid rally car that made its debut the 2014 Geneva Auto Show as an affordable production all-wheel-drive performance car.
The Sbarro Sparta uses a mid-mounted Peugeot 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, which drives the rear wheels with a six-speed manual gearbox, all while twin 100-kW electric motors (one for the front wheels, one at the rear) add up to a total output of around 407 horsepower. It has a gasoline powertrain and a tubular steel structure, with bodywork done in fiberglass. A sizable 24-kWh lithium-ion battery pack is mounted down low, and the total weight of the car is just 3080 lb (1397 kg). OZ racing rims and Michelin racing tires finish the look.

The Sbarro Sparta's performance is a combination of those of the Renault Alpine Celebration and Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG Racing Series, combining traits from both cars.
The Sbarro Sparta has the same rate of acceleration as the Renault Alpine Celebration, but has a higher maximum total speed of 266.2 mph/428.6 km/h. The Sparta has superb nitro efficiency at 5/10/15, a carryover from the CLA 45 AMG Racing Series. The only disadvantage the Sparta has is its average drifting radius, which is sharper than that of the CLA 45 AMG but wider than that of the Alpine Celebration. The Sparta's steering capacity is acceptably sharp, on the other hand, assuming steering sensitivity is set to at least 92%.
The Sbarro Sparta used to stand as the best Class C car in general, replacing the Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG Racing Series on tracks where the latter car was faster than the Alpine Celebration. However, since the Maserati Alfieri's addition, the Sparta has lost its spot as the best Class C vehicle. In technical tracks like Sector 8, Venice, and Patagonia, the Sparta's above-average drifting means that the Alpine Celebration is still the best Class C car in Sector 8, which is currently the only track where the Alpine is better than the Sparta.
On the other hand, much like the Vencer Sarthe, the Sparta is not suited for Multiplayer usage, though, owing to its high starting rank and, to an extent, Elite status which does not allow many races to be played at once.
As of the Fifth Anniversary Update, the Sbarro Sparta's reign over Class C has mostly ended due to the presence of the Maserati Alfieri, which features superior acceleration and a higher total speed by 0.4 mph/0.7 km/h. Unlike the Alfieri, however, the Sparta does not have restrictive availability, thus retaining the Sparta some usability for those who lack the Alfieri. In addition, the Sparta still features superior handling and drifting compared to the Alfieri, which comes in handy on short and/or technical tracks like Dubai, Sector 8, or Munich Subway.
According to the in-game data, the Sbarro Sparta costs 4,750 when on sale, although it can be assembled after collecting 16 Sbarro Sparta BP cards. Assembly takes 5 hours to complete, but it can be skipped for a maximum of 289.
As of the 2019 Spring Update, upgrades cost 1,561,000 while Pro Kits require 520,800, 40 of each Class C Part, 36 Initial & Early Techs each, 28 Mid-Techs, and 60 Hybrid Engines.
As of the Sixth Anniversary Update, the car no longer requires Blueprints to be assembled, and has a full purchase price of 4,750, same as the hidden purchase price. As of the 2020 Halloween Update, the Sparta can be purchased for 730,000.
Tune-ups cost 1,750, take 1h 30 min to finish, and can be skipped for up to 180. The Sixth Anniversary Update removed the car's Elite status.
The Sbarro Sparta was made available from April 12, 2017 onwards as a Blueprints-unlockable car.
The Sparta is a reward for reaching Tier 20 in the Drako GTE Festival. Players who already own the car will win 5x 1-Advanced Tech Box instead.
