The ONUK Sazan LM makes its first appearance in Asphalt 8: Airborne and it is the first Turkish car in the game. It is named after the nickname of Kaan Onuk, son of the founder Ekber Onuk, who was also the launcher of the project, who came to an untimely end, who brought the STC16 team together after 40+ years.
The Onuk is powered by a 7-liter Chevrolet LS7 V8, giving it 505 hp and a top speed of nearly 300 km/h.
The ONUK Sazan LM has very good top speed, mediocre nitro efficiency (7/12/17), good handling, and good acceleration. However, the ONUK Sazan LM suffers from a very wide drifting radius, albeit not as wide as the drifting radii of the Shelby Cobra 427, TVR Sagaris, and Mercedes-Benz Biome.
Usage (Multiplayer) Edit
Due to its low starting rank and large Tuning Kit bonus, the ONUK Sazan LM is decent for Multiplayer. However, it is nowhere near as good as the Shelby Cobra 427 or TVR Sagaris because it has an upgrade rank weighting of 60% 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 ONUK Sazan LM can't get extremely fast at low ranks.
The ONUK Sazan LM was once commonly used in Multiplayer. However, similarly to how the Lamborghini Asterion and Mercedes-Benz Biome are now obsolete, the ONUK Sazan LM is no longer extremely competitive. It is still usable, to some extent, running at ~250 mph (~400 km/h) at a rank of around 1400, similarly to the Rinspeed zaZen and the Mercedes-Benz Biome. However, the Shelby Cobra 427 reaches the same speed at a rank below 1250, while the TVR Sagaris runs at 270.6 mph (435.6 km/h) at rank 1390.
Usage (Other) Edit
The ONUK Sazan LM was given out to the top 50 players in a single-player TLE, and to the top 88 players in a Multiplayer TLE, which consisted of a rotating series of races in Dubai.
The ONUK Sazan LM costs 1,595,400 to MAX and 1,027,275 to PRO. As of the Car Blueprints Update, the original tokens price has been removed and replaced with the requirement of 35 Blueprints to be assembled. It is the tenth car to be released as a Multiplayer League reward and is part of the tenth Multiplayer Season, Bloom Season, which started on June 8, 2017. Players who finished in the Elite League received all 35 BP cards; players who finished in lower leagues received some Blueprints for the ONUK Sazan LM.
