Kunos Simulazioni has released first in-game previews of the KTM X-Bow in their upcoming Assetto Corsa simulation.

Build by Austrian motorcycle specialist KTM, the X-Bow is a road-legal lightweight open-top sports car with two seats. In production since 2008 , the R-version is powered by a 300hp Audi TFSI engine, the 750-kilo heavy X-Bow R sprints from 0 to 100 in less than four seconds.

Furthermore, the guys also have released two new screenshots revealing two new cars that are part of AC’s BMW license, the BMW Z4 GT3 and the BMW M3 E30.

Assetto Corsa will be powered by a brand new DirectX 11 graphics engine and will come with advanced features such as blur & DOF. The title will offer extensive modding support as well as ten laser-scanned tracks and fully licensed cars as well as AI – A first for a Kunos title.

    The KTM Homobow…….nicely finished fugly car, in fact I think it is actually uglier than the the Atom…….

    The E30 and Z4 looking really nice as well.

    It has an E30 M3. AC’s car count just self imploded to a grand total of 1.

    Insta purchase for me.  This could be a reskin of netkar, which it isn’t, and I’d still buy it.

    The front wheels on the KTM look to be an inch bigger than the real thing, but that M3 really caught my attention! Looking forward to see more progress! 🙂

    It’s graphics don’t look far off pCARS and it will certainly excel in the physics department. Cant wait for AC!

    Dont think I can take much more of this Kunos, It looks way too much fun!

  • noro ardanto

    I don’t know why, but despite pCars excellent details, assetto corsa screen shots seems look more realistic?

    Yep, it’s the first time I find AC screens on the same level as pCARS, lightning looks a bit better while the car details isn’t as detailed as that from pCARS.

  • Luke Russell

    I think that the art team behind Assetto Corsa are doing a fantastic job.

  • Rolands Svetins

    I actually feel by watching these screens how good it is going to feel!

    Looks awesome of course. I like the progression of lighting work and a stunning vehicle design to showcase it.

    However, I can’t help but think that, from the name, the X-bow is some sort of exercise equipment you use while performing a session of Kung-robics.
