Best car by class?


Recommended Posts

I just bumped a thread for this but can't find it in 8 pages. So - now that we've had numerous updates/patches, and now that we've all gotten more comfy with the game, what is your preferred car by class and why?

Super: Entity XF - Still the king of supercar races. Has the best traction/handling.

Sports: Elegy RH8 - For reasons like the Entity XF. Has the best handling.

Motorcycles: Akuma - I'm not good at wheelieing. I heard that the Bati 801 only beats the Akuma if the rider wheelies.

Muscle: Dominator - The Gauntlet is said to be more grippier, but it's slower as well. I think the Dominator will serve experience muscle car drivers well.

Sports Classics: Z-Type - R* seems to have made that car so fast, and in my experience, it's easier to control than the Monroe.

Coupes: Exemplar - Best stats in the coupes class. No other car can compete with it.

Sedans: Schafter - Can keep up with Super Diamonds, but turns corners better.

SUVs: Baller II - The Radius is better on some tracks, but for most cases, the Baller's speed and acceleration blows everything else away.

Compacts: Blista - The Blista and Issi are close to each other, but the Blista has better handling.

Off-road: Sanchez - Fast and nimble. Experienced Sanchez riders can be pretty much unbeatable.

Cycles: Any of the race bikes - Best statistics. Bicycle races are slow-paced, so turning shouldn't really be an issue.

Utility: Caddy - Best speed and acceleration. Like bicycles, utility vehicles are pretty slow as well.

Vans: Bison - Not a true van, but supposedly has the best stats in the vans class. Don't know much about this class.


Sports are my favorite car class, so I have some other sports car recommendations.


Surano - I like this car's driving style because it feels so firm and sturdy. Won a good amount of races with it.

9F Cabrio - Lightweight and easy to drift, but not as hard to control as the Carbonizzare or Comet.

Rapid GT - Yes, people aren't kidding when they say this car steers like a bus, but it has great straight line speed, and its heavy weight means that it won't get tossed around by rammers.

Banshee - Not as fast as other sports cars, but has bat out of hell acceleration and a fun muscle car feel.

Jester - Worse grip than the Elegy, but can compete with the top cars in its class.

Alpha - Nice sturdy, balanced car, and few people use it in races, so you can be different.

The first post pretty much nails it, with the exception of noting that the Adder will beat the Entity in a fair race with a lot of straights and the Sports class being very close, as the Shafter can keep up with the Elegy pretty easily in the hands of experienced drivers.

Don't worry about vans, suv's or compacts, no one races those classes. I have had one van race and maybe an occasional suv race here and there, doesn't warrant wasting a garage space unless you're really hell bent on having a car for each class.


I have almost 1000 races played and so far to me it would be,


Super- Adder, Entity, Turismo. Stating the obvious but it's these three then there's "the rest". I use all three, adder for highway tracks and usually mix it up every other race between my entity/turismo.

Sport- Jester is my personal favorite, 9F and Carbo if you're looking for a fun challenging car to use. I always raced the feltzer before I bought my jester, very stable and solid car for racing.

Coupe- Exemplar, bar none, this car is a beast compared to all the other coupes.

Sedan- Tailgater is my preferred vehicle, but most other people seem to use the super diamond which seems to be the best in this class along with the shafter.

Super: Entity XF. The Adder is faster, but it's a little squirrelly on the back end. The Entity handles the curves better.

Sports: Ellegy RH8. Speed and Handling. The Jester is comparable, but the Ellegy is free.

Muscle: Gauntlet. It's not the fastest car, but it's the one I enjoy driving the most.

Sports Classic: I have a Tornado, but I pick a Z-Type when racing

Motorcyle: Depends on the type of race. I have both a Bati 801 and an Akuma in my garage. The Bati is the faster bike, but the Akuma handles better on tracks with a lot of curves.



I don't drive any of the other classes much so I can't comment on them.

You guys think the Issi is competitive with the Blista? Could it beat a Blista with a driver of comparable skill?

The Issi gets really tailhappy if someone even looks at it funny, while the Blista understeers like a boat. Whoever gets the wayward handling under control will win.


My preferences:


Super: Turismo R

Sport: Jester/Carbo

Coupe: Felon

Sport Classic: Monroe

Muscle: Dominator

Sedan: Stanier

Off-Road: Bifta

Compact: Blista

SUV: Baller II

Motorcycle: Double-T

Van: Bison (or Clown Van!)

Utility: Faggio
