The Vencer Sarthe is a Dutch supercar produced by Vencer. It is the first automobile to be produced by Vencer.
A prototype of the Sarthe was unveiled in 2013 by Prince Albert II of Monaco at the Top Marques auto show in Monaco. In September 2013, it was awarded the 'Most Sensational Supercar 2013' award. The first Vencer Sarthe was sold at a Vencer dealership in China.
The Sarthe was inspired by 1980s 24 Hours of Le Mans racecars.It has an 'automatic' rear spoiler and carbon fiber bodywork that is manufactured at the Vencer factory in the Netherlands. All the panels on the inside of the car are made with carbon fiber.
The Sarthe is powered by a supercharged 6.3 liter V8 engine that was designed by General Motors and tuned by Hennessey. It produces 622 bhp and 618 lb-ft torque. The car has a top speed of 338 km/h (210 mph), and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.6 seconds.
The Vencer Sarthe was added in the Road Kings Update as a high Class C car with the following rank statistics:
The Vencer Sarthe has a top speed of 217.8 mph (350,5 km/h) at MAX, making it the 2nd fastest Class C car, only losing to the Arrinera Hussarya. This comes at the cost of poor nitro efficiency, slow acceleration, and weak handling. As such, the Vencer Sarthe excels on speed oriented tracks like Himalayas while technical tracks should only be considered if the player is sufficiently skilled. At MAX, it has worse acceleration, top speed and nitro duration but better handling than the Hussarya. Overall, the Vencer is a difficult car to drive in multiplayer but can closely compete with the Hussarya if driven properly.
The Sarthe's blueprints can be obtained from the weekly Class C cup, albeit at a very low drop rate.
The Vencer Sarthe was added in the 2018 Spring Update as a mid Class C car with the following statistics:
- Starting rank: 1407
- This was changed to 1358 in the ? update
- MAX rank: 1485 (+78)
- This was changed to 1432 (+74) in the ? update
- MAX+PRO rank: 1540 (+55)
- This was changed to 1497 (+65) in the ? update
- Tuning Kit bonus: +20
- This was changed to +45 in the ? update
- Upgrade rank percentages: 25/25/25/25
- Nitro Efficiency: 7/12/17
The Vencer Sarthe has a maximum total speed of 401.5 km/h/249.4 mph at MAX+PRO with a Tuning Kit activated. This is 2.9 km/h/1.8 mph slower than the Felino cB7. The Sarthe has good nitro efficiency, decent handling, and relatively fast acceleration.
The Vencer Sarthe is not good to use in multiplayer, as the unusually high starting rank will guarantee a match with numerous multiplayer favorites like the Audi R8 e-tron Special Edition and BMW M2 Special Edition.
The Vencer Sarthe is also not recommended for use in TLEs, as there are a lot of vehicles which can outperform it, such as the Sbarro Sparta, Maserati Alfieri, and even the Renault Trezor, Honda Civic Type R, and Volkswagen Golf Design Vision GTI. Forced-Induction V8 cards should not be used on this car except if trying to complete its Car Mastery challenges, in which case said cards should instead go to cars like the Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition and TRION NEMESIS.
The Vencer Sarthe can be obtained by completing its Championship event and/or collecting 40 of its common Blueprints. Assembly takes 5 hours but can be skipped for up to 289.
As of the Sixth Anniversary Update, the car no longer requires Blueprints to be assembled, and has a full purchase price of 3,000.
As of the 2020 Halloween Update, the Sarthe can be purchased for 590,000.
The Vencer Sarthe was given as a Thanksgiving gift on November 28, 2020. Players who already have the Vencer Sarthe prior to the Thanksgiving gift would receive 2,000 instead.
