"Created by the same manufacturer as the Bisonte, Fatalita is a sports car in its own right. Evolved over years of racing, this car is a thoroughbred circuit racer."
Ridge Racer (PSP)

The Assoluto Fatalita is a car produced by Assoluto, first appearing in Rage Racer, and has been a mainstay whenever the Assoluto brand appears in the Ridge Racer series.

Design and performance

In Rage Racer, the Fatalita is touted as the "protagonist" car, as the game's intro FMV prominently show the car. In this game, the Fatalita features a look similar to a Lotus Elise, turning into a Porsche 911 GT1 look-alike in Class 5. The car features a rotary engine similar to the Mazda RX-7, starting with a 2-rotor engine, turning to a 3-rotor engine in the car's ultimate specification (Class 5) and can be equipped with automatic transmission. The same Fatalita (with Class 3 body) returns in R4: Ridge Racer Type 4, with a 3-rotor engine from the start. Finishing first twice in the first heat grants the player the Fatalita for the second heat.

For the PSP games, as well as Ridge Racer 6, 7, and 3D, the Fatalita's design was dramatically changed to a typical Lamborghini look, specifically the Murcielago. Originally, in the PSP games, the car was equipped with pop-up headlights, but it was changed to a more modern projector headlights in the sixth game. This version also appears in Ridge Racer Slipstream, incorrectly named Assoluto Bisonte (later renamed Fatalita after an update). Two versions available in both Ridge Racer 7 and Slipstream: the "standard" variant, purchasable by the player and customizable, and the "Complete Machine", a pre-tuned variant obtainable by winning a certain race.

For the Vita game, the Fatalita returns as one of the DLC cars for the game, now reverting to the original Elise-styled look and rotary engine (now with four rotors), in essence making the third generation Fatalita a retro-styled car.
"The Fatalita, also known as the circuit-spec machine, has undergone some minor changes. No mechanical or technological updates were made, but the pure hide used for the interior has now been changed to a new synthetic fabric produced by DEROTA. Although the luxurious feel of pure hide has been sacrificed, the new fabric is lighter, more durable, and is more comfortable, as it acts as a seat cooler, receiving positive feedback from many racers in the RSGP."

Trivia

  • Fatalita means "fatality" in Italian.
  • The Fatalita is the only Assoluto car that can be equipped with an automatic transmission in Rage Racer.
  • The Fatalita is the only car in Rage Racer to return in Ridge Racer Type 4.
  • In the PSP titles, the Class 3 Fatalita has a 6-speed transmission. However, in Class 6 specifications, it has a 5-speed transmission.
  • Ridge Racer Slipstream's depiction of the Fatalita stated that it had undergone a minor update which saw the change of upholstery from leather to fabric, technically downgrading the car.
  • One of the available aero upgrades in Ridge Racer 7 features aerodynamic wheel spats. In real life, wheel spats are practically obsolete since the mid-2000s, but once popular in older racing cars.
  • Ridge Racer 7 described the Fatalita Complete Machine as "not much different" from its standard ones. This is a possible nod to Lamborghini Murcielago R-GT which retained its standard engine but slightly modified by fitting air restrictors.
  • In the PS Vita releases, the Fatalita returned to its original rotary engine layout.
