Asphalt 8: Airborne
The TVR Sagaris SE was added in the Holiday Update as a high-end Class A car with the following statistics:
- Starting rank: 1237
- MAX rank: 1568 (+331)
- MAX+PRO rank: 1746 (+178)
- Tuning Kit bonus: +57
- Stock-to-MAX+PRO rank difference: 509
- Upgrade rank percentages: 20/30/20/30
- Nitro Efficiency: 5/10/15
The TVR Sagaris SE has a quick acceleration of 2.9 seconds (stand-still to full speed), mediocre handling, strong drifting, excellent nitro efficiency, and good top speed for its rank. The TVR Sagaris SE features improved nitro efficiency and drifting radius from the standard TVR Sagaris.
Notably, the TVR Sagaris SE has the highest top speed of any non-Elite Special Edition car in the game.
The Fast Lane Update initially reduced the total top speed of the TVR Sagaris SE to 289 mph/466 km/h, making it slower than the Audi R8 e-tron SE and Mazda RX-8 SE. A hotfix update released shortly after restored the original top speed, placing the final rank at A1737.
In Time-Limited Events, the TVR Sagaris SE is placed in the same Division Bracket as the 2015 GTA Spano, Audi R8 e-tron Special Edition, Mazda RX-8 Special Edition, BMW i8 Coupe, BMW M2 Special Edition, and Suzuki Hayabusa.
The TVR Sagaris is a well-rounded car that can rival the Audi R8 e-tron Special Edition. Compared to the Audi R8 SE, the TVR Sagaris has slightly worse nitro efficiency, slower acceleration, similar drifting and handling capabilities, and higher top speed by 2.6 mph (4.4 km/h). Overall, the Audi R8 e-tron SE seems to be the superior vehicle with its faster acceleration and better nitro efficiency, but the TVR Sagaris' higher top speed makes it competitive on long tracks.
The TVR Sagaris Special Edition, given its speed and starting rank, is not ideal for Multiplayer.
The R&D event of this vehicle is rather difficult, requiring an almost MAX+PRO upgrade to complete the event, which will result in the TVR Sagaris SE being pitted with superior cars very often, though there has been a single verifiable success of beating the R&D at Rank 1500, as seen here.
The TVR Sagaris SE is only obtainable from its R&D event.
As of the 2019 Spring Update, upgrades cost 2,430,000 while Pro Kits require 809,600, 30 of each Class A Part, 16 Early & Initial Techs each, 32 Mid-Techs, 16 Advanced Techs, and 56 i6 Engines.
