Mclaren’s uniquely designed hybrid super car will join other Mclarens in Assetto Corsa, below is a first render, allowing us to check out the very interesting shapes of this remarkable car.

    Yellow Bird, GTR, now the P1. Since management is on my wavelength (my last 3 requests were granted after all) I predict the next license will be Mazda, and the 787b. *rubs crystal ball*

    • Deatroy

      Hopefully your magic balls are right!

    • Nicolas Grignon

      Personally, I would prefer the 787B on RRE or Iracing, just because in the long virtual racing game history, not one game gave this car true justice in term of her hellish crazy engine sound… and ATM AC sound is really not that good.

  • damys

    i think some gift is behind the corner for the 1.0

    Alien-mobile is about to land.
    I wonder, what data McLaren has shared with KS guys..

      Did you see this car when it featured on Top Gear (UK) ?

      It’s just brutal. What a technological achievement too. What is it 900+ bhp when fully blowing ? Yikes.

      I`ll take 3 :)

      ..and wouldn’t it be cool if in AC they allowed switching from sports mode to track mode etc with the suspension dropping and spoiler extracting for track mode.

      • Michael Hornbuckle

        As cool as that would be (switching between sport and track) I wouldn’t hold your breath as no other car has this option.

      • F1Racer

        Yeah I know. I was day dreaming again :) Anyway I’m sure KS will do a great job with it and if they can get that blow-off sound as per the video… oh boy.

      • Michael Hornbuckle

        Hopefully by the time it is released there will be major upgrades to the sound engine. This thing will make the Huayra on semi’s seem almost tame. Can’t wait.

      • dd101

        Custom sounds would help it somewhat. Having telemetry and old tricks on board, some could blow a dust from “external sound system” approach from the past as well.

  • Pablo Coronel

    Is 1.0? how much far from 1.0? did i say 1.0?

    • melanieuk1

      No one knows, you’ve got a chance to purchase it right now, if you don’t you’ll have a while to wait.

      • Pablo Coronel

        Thanks melanieuk1, i already have it, but im exited about modding and i ask because maybe is an ETA i missing.

      • Michael Hornbuckle

        I asked Aris directly and IF MP rolls out smoothly and IF the AI gets a bit more respectable and there are NO showstopping bugs then we are around 6 weeks away from V1.0. The mod tools will be released ‘some time’ after that.

      • MrMaki

        Uh, thanks for sharing this info!

        Have to say I’m quite surprised though. I’m really in love with AC, but it actually feels like being month from 1.0

        No MP, no full length race, no pit stops let alone pit crew, AI still has some way to go,~ 2 tracks & 6 cars missing…

        I’ll be quite impressed if they’ll manage to do this in 6 weeks :-]

      • Pablo Coronel

        Thank you! really nice to hear that!

  • F1Racer

    Is it me or did KS just announce multiplayer for May 2nd ? :D
    i wonder whether we`ll see more joy or more things to complain about… time will tell.

    • MrMaki

      Oh rly? When/where did they?
      By the way: Did I miss someting, isn’t tomorrow patchday? :-]
      It’s like some little christmas every two weeks. Always curious about what will be in next patch.
      I’m going to miss this once we reach 1.0 for sure :D

      • F1Racer

        It’s on that dreaded Facebook thingy.

      • melanieuk1

        No updates tomorrow, it’ll come next week with the new Multiplayer.

      • F1Racer

        what ?! It’s bad enough having a 3 week gap with F1 races but for AC updates…. aaarrrgghhh!!
        I was looking fwd to tomorrow just for that.

      • Hurdy Hurdy

        Kunos also cited tomorrow’s Liberation Day celebrations – a commemoration of the day in which Mussolini’s Fascist regime was overthrown – as a reason why the multiplayer mode’s release has been pushed back. The desire to “provide the best gaming experience we can” was also confirmed as a contributor to the postponement.

        Quoted above from article over at VVV

      • F1Racer

        Yeah I just read the whole article. Well we’ll just have to survive another week :)

      • Michael Hornbuckle

        It’s going to be a LONG week

      • F1Racer

        Tell me about it. Have to binge-watch a TV series or something :)

      • Michael Hornbuckle

        There are a couple tracks that modders have just released to play on. Eastern Creek is bumpy and fun.

    • melanieuk1

      Yes they did, got my new steering wheel ready….twerk!! twerk!!

    • Petros Dialektakis

      That’s some good news!

    • Deatroy

      yep, 1 week to wait and they host already some server for us.
      That means we can test directly… yuhuuu, only one week is ok..
      Hope we get Damage, Real road and such now in V0.9

    This is great, this is really a unique car, so playful but so seriously fast at the same time!

    No other car can be drifted and do a sub 7 minute ring lap as well as reach 220+mph top speed! :)

    Looking forward to the inevitable battle between LaFerrari and P1 in AC
