The Assoluto Bisonte is a sports car made by Italian car company Assoluto.
The styling resembles the flamboyant "pull me over" style of Lamborghini, and the performance of this Assoluto masterpiece is astonishing.
Ridge Racer Type 4
This is one of the car featured in R4's intro movie, alongside the Lizard Detector, Age Solo Dirigeant and Terrazi Troop. It features an aggressive-looking bodywork, signified by the sharp front end and the presence of angular shapes along the bodywork. Power comes courtesy of an overhead valve 3.0 liter V8 engine mated to a 5-speed transmission.

Ridge Racer 6 and 7
- "The Bisonte, a pure racing machine from ASSOLUTO, is hand crafted using many custom materials- the reason for its high price tag. Few drivers are able to experience its amazing capabilities solely because of its price. A luxurious, but excellent, rare machine with precision handling."

The Bisonte undergoes another model change for the Ridge Racer 6. This time, it features a 3.0 liter double overhead cam V8 engine. It excels on the acceleration department, but hampered by a somewhat low top speed. At this iteration, it's a Standard-type car, meaning it has balanced drifting characteristics.
In Ridge Racer 7, the Bisonte returns in its Ridge Racer 6 form, but is now a Category 2 machine, putting it equal to the Fatalita, with the only difference being the Bisonte has slightly slower top speed, but more agile through the corners. A special Complete Machine variant is available in Category 2, obtainable by earning 100 manufacturer's points with Assoluto.

- The Bisonte may be the Ridge Racer 4's cover car (alongside the Terrazi Troop), but it is given to you only if you perform not your best throughout the early parts of the game, which may be the reason why the Fatalita is a grade higher (in the latest RR series).
- In RR4, the Assoluto Cavaliere(one of Assoluto's cars)'s front resembles Saleen S7 while the rest is based off from Lamborghini Diablo
- The RR4 Bisonte appeared as a special class car in RR Accelerated for the iPhone and iPod touch, and reaches speeds up to 389 KMH. With nitrous, it can hit 459 KMH (270+ MPH).
- The RR4 Bisonte is also one of the pre-order bonus cars, along with RC410 and the original Fiera in Ridge Racer Unbounded under the name "Ridge Racer Type 4 car".
- Bisonte means Bison in Italian and Portuguese.
- In Ridge Racer Vita. The name was changed to Assoluto Bisargento which means Silver Bison.
- Also in Ridge Racer Vita, there is a special paint job for Bisargento that features Chihaya Kisaragi, the character from The iDOLM@STER.It can be downloaded.
- In Ridge Racer Vita, Assoluto Bisargento can be considered as the spiritual successor to Bisonte, bearing almost identical design.
- In Ridge Racer 7, the Bisonte is only 1 km/h slower than the Fatalita (with the Solvalou engine tuning setup). The Bisonte also corners better than the Fatalita with the Astraroth tires and suspension setup (with its grip on HI).
- To get the Bisonte in RIdge Racer Type 4 follow this pattern in the grand prix: Heat 1: 3rd, 3rd. Heat 2: 1st, 2nd after this you will get the Bisonte in the Last Heat.
- In Ridge Racer Slipstream the Bisonte is a rebadged Assoluto Fatalita from Ridge Racer 6 and 7 which looks more the the Lamborghini Murcielago. An update fixed this by correcting the car's name into Fatalita.
