The 9FF GT9 VMAX is a Porsche 911 GT3 (997)-based hypercar.
The 9FF GT9 VMAX is an upgraded version of the 9FF GT9, loosely based on the Porsche 911 (Type 997) GT3. Created to beat the world record for the fastest production car, it was instead beaten by the SSC Ultimate Aero and every single one of the 9FF GT9 variants was sold at an auction. The 9FF GT9s were never tested either.
Improving from the GT9-R package, the 9FF GT9 VMAX delivers 1381 hp (1400 PS;1030 kW) and 855 ft·lb (1159 N·m) from a 4.2 liter twin-turbocharged flat-six engine. The VMAX can do 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds, 0-124 mph in 6.8 seconds, and 0-186 mph in 13 seconds. The car reaches a top speed of 272 mph (437 km/h).
The 9FF GT9 VMAX extensively uses carbon fiber bodywork, polycarbonate windows, and lightweight wheels.
The 9FF GT9 VMAX is the only Class S car of the 2014 Winter Update and the first non-premium token-purchasable Class S car in the game.
The 9FF GT9 VMAX at best qualifies as a mid-high-end Class S car, given these stats:
The 9FF GT9 VMAX is a well-rounded vehicle, with high launch/acceleration capabilities, albeit inferior to the Koenigsegg One:1, McLaren 675LT, and Ferrari 330 P4. At MAX+PRO with a Tuning Kit, it can reach its total speed from a standstill within a maximum of 3.9 seconds (at Level 3 Nitro). As a result of the weight-reduction measures and track-tuned components installed onto the car, the VMAX has superb handling and drifting. Along with its decent top speed stats and excellent nitro consumption rates (5/10/15), the VMAX is a car that is capable of competing on virtually any track, especially tracks with long straights.
The only real disadvantage of this car is its speed multiplier of 88.60%; while better than the Koenigsegg Agera R's 87.17%, in fact, at MAX+PRO with a Tuning Kit, the 9FF GT9 VMAX actually has the same total speed as the McLaren 675LT. When both cars are compared together, the McLaren 675LT is lighter, weighing 242 lbs (110 kg) less; this means that while the 675LT actually has almost the same handling, it still accelerates slightly faster (3.8 seconds to maximum speed from a standing start with Level 3 Nitro). However, both cars otherwise have virtually identical performance.
Seeing as to how there are now better alternatives like the TRION NEMESIS, McLaren 675LT, etc., the 9FF GT9 VMAX has become almost completely useless, especially in Events, due to the lack of events that involve the 9FF GT9 VMAX as the dominant car. In many events that involve mid-high-end Class S cars like the 9FF GT9 VMAX, most players use either the Lamborghini Egoista or Ferrari Enzo Ferrari instead.
The 9FF GT9 VMAX used to cost 12,000. MAX+PROing the car requires 3,047,050, making it the first car that costs more than 3,000,000 in terms of total upgrades. As of the Porsche Update, the 9FF GT9 VMAX is no longer available for purchase. Prior to the aforementioned update, the VMAX and all other Porsche-derived cars were given away for free via giveaway cups.
The 9FF GT9 VMAX, erroneously renamed to 9FF GT9-R, appears as a Class S car, added in the fourth update and officially made playable in the fifth update.
The 9FF GT9-R, a Class S car, behaves exactly the same as its Asphalt 8: Airborne rendition, but is now the fastest car in the game.
