The Mercedes-Benz Biome is an electric concept car that appears in the Asphalt series.
The Mercedes-Benz Biome is an electric concept car created by Mercedes-Benz in 2010. This car is unique in that it is grown in a laboratory rather than at a factory line and runs on Bio Nectar 4534 fuel.
Added in the Dubai update, the Mercedes-Benz Biome is one of the three electric cars by Mercedes-Benz, with the others being the SLS AMG Electric Drive and Silver Lightning. It is located in the Garage at low-mid Class B.
The Mercedes-Benz Biome has a starting rank of 1192 (same as the Jaguar F-Type R in Class C), a MAX rank of 1486 and a MAX + PRO rank of 1590. The Mercedes-Benz Biome receives +57 rank points from Tuning Kits.
Despite now being all but obsolete, the Biome was once one of the most influential cars in Asphalt 8 history. When it was introduced, it was the unrivaled Multiplayer king and B Class king, a position it held for a long time, as well as the car with the best handling in the whole game, a title it still holds.
The Mercedes-Benz Biome has very good top speed (however, later, better cars have emerged with superior top speed to the Biome), very good nitro efficiency (5/10/15), good acceleration, and, arguably, the best handling in the entire game. In fact, the Biome can take virtually any corner in the game at MAX+PRO, even when it is going at full speed, being able to take infamous turns like the Sector 8 final curve and Dubai's first turn.
However, the Mercedes-Benz Biome has extremely bad drifting, almost as bad as the TVR Sagaris. On the other hand, its drifting can be combined with its superb handling using the "drift-punch" technique, allowing the Mercedes-Benz Biome to do "wheelies" which are tighter than those of the Donkervoort D8 GTO, the car with the best drifting in the game.
Usage (Multiplayer) Edit
Due to its low starting rank and large Tuning Kit bonus, the Mercedes-Benz Biome is decent for Multiplayer.
However as of now, it is nowhere near as good as new cars like the Shelby Cobra 427 or TVR Sagaris because it has an upgrade rank weighting of 65% for raw top speed, instead of the 30% weighting which the Shelby Cobra 427 and TVR Sagaris possess. So, even though it has a very low starting rank, the Mercedes-Benz Biome can't get extremely fast at low ranks.
The Mercedes-Benz Biome used to be a "king" of Multiplayer, triumphing its competition by far, but after the Multiplayer League Update, and along with it the introduction of the Sagaris, it lost its "king status". As of now, it is overshadowed by many cars, including the Chevrolet 2016 Camaro SS and TVR Sagaris. The Mercedes-Benz Biomes runs at ~250 mph (~400 km/h) at a rank of around 1400.
Usage (Other) Edit
The Mercedes-Benz Biome qualifies for its own race in Season 7, which is the final race of Season 7 itself. It also qualifies for the two Mercedes-Benz events in the game, both of which are also in Season 7 but appear earlier than the Mercedes-Benz Biome's event.
At 450,000 (same as the Ferrari FF from Class A), the Mercedes-Benz Biome was one of the most expensive Class B cars in the game available for purchase by (and the second most expensive Mercedes-Benz vehicle in the game, excluding the Premium Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Coupé Final Edition). The Biome also costs 1,276,425 to MAX.
