In 2008, Sbarro revived their Alcador title for a new supercar based on the Ferrari 360. It followed three Alcador roadsters which were first seen at 1995 Geneva Auto Show.
Called the Alcador GTB, the design was commissioned by the Lienhard family which owns and operates the Lista Office design firm. Their first car was based on a 512TR and called the LO-GT. In 2008 an updated version was released on the Ferrari 360 Platform and released at the 2008 Geneva Auto Show.
A 2009 version was also added to lineup painted in dark blue. This appeared with 'Alcador GTB' license plates at Geneva and was later seen with Ferrari badges and renamed the LO presumably by the Lienhard family.
The Sbarro Alcador GTB uses a 3.6L V8 from the Ferrari 360 Modena.
The Sbarro Alcador was added in the Lunar New Year Update.
The Sbarro Alcador's starting rank is 1321, MAX rank 1601, and MAX+PRO rank 1760. The car receives a Tuning Kit bonus of +53. The Alcador mainly rivals the Chevrolet Corvette C3 and Hennessey Venom GT.
Possibly owing to its outdated engine, the Sbarro Alcador has poor performance, hence why it is regarded as one of the most worthless cars in the entire game. Acceleration is heavily underwhelming despite having a nitro stat and nitro efficiency (7/12/17) equal to those of the Geely GC9 or Jaguar C-X75. The Alcador's top speed stat is similarly sub-par, only almost equivalent to the RUF RT 12 S and RUF CTR 3 at MAX+PRO with a Tuning Kit. Furthermore, the Alcador's biggest disadvantage is its very wide drifting radius, wider than most cars in its rank range. With this, despite what the Alcador's rank suggests, it cannot beat the McLaren 675LT, Mosler GT3, Ferrari 330 P4, or even the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4, Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe Touring Car 2014, and Lamborghini Egoista due to its many disadvantages.
The Alcador has a total speed of 299.1 mph/481.5 km/h. In summary, the Sbarro Alcador can basically be described as a heavily-upgraded Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Coupé Final Edition but with a larger nitro stat.
Due to its many shortcomings in its performance, the Alcador is highly not recommended outside of the Sbarro Sparta's Enduro Double Down event. In Multiplayer, despite its tuning potential, including an upgrade configuration of 0400 5050 which gives a total speed of 270.0 mph/434.8 km/h at rank A1525, it has nowhere near the same level of competitiveness as the McLaren Mercedes MP4-25 and BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage.
Other upgrade configurations of 0400 1030 (254.2 mph/409.3 km/h @ A1459), 0502 5051 (283.1 mph/455.8 km/h @ A1599), and 0505 5050 (291.3 mph/469.1 km/h @ A1669) do not do the Alcador a lot of justice, either, again due to its poor overall performance.
One overlooked niche of the Alcador is its usability as a Credits-farming car in Car Mastery: its 15th Mastery Challenge, a Flawless race set in San Diego Harbor, earns an average of 5,900 in an average race time of 55 seconds. Without Double Credits and VIP Bonuses, approximately 293,000 is expected to be made per hour with this race being played and cleared nonstop.
Prior to the Lunar New Year 2017 Update, the Sbarro Alcador was priced at 1,350,000 for purchase. Its price was later changed to 7,125. As of the Car Blueprints Update, the Sbarro Alcador requires 95 Sbarro Alcador BP cards. Assembly for the Alcador takes 4 hours, but can be skipped for up to 262.
It is the ninth car to be released as a Multiplayer League reward, and is part of the ninth Multiplayer Season, Garden Season, which started on May 11, 2017. All players who participate in the Garden Season receive Sbarro Alcador BP Boxes at the end of the season, with Elite League players getting all 95 BPs.
Prior to the Lunar New Year 2017 Update, the Sbarro Alcador had always been available for purchase since March 4, 2016. It was changed into a time-limited car, available only for purchase between February 19, 2017 and February 26, 2017.
As of April 7, 2017, the Sbarro Alcador now remains permanently in the garage for everyone. It can now be obtained through the Assembly System, requiring 95 Blueprints to be assembled.
