    GT-R would be nice to battle against the McLaren and Ferrari 458.

      On Top Gear this car even beat a Pagani Zonda F, so i am clueless if Ferrari or Mclaren are slower or faster then the GTR 😮

      • Hugo Stiglitz

        With a different driver. The new stig is at least 2 seconds faster than Ben Collins

  • Joca Mazalo

    Amazing.. GT-R is just what we need in AC. Looking better and better

  • Chris Wright

    It’s good to know that AI is high on their priority list, as that is really going to be the critical aspect, for offline racers like myself. Everything has been so professionally handled so far, I have to say I’m extremely confident KS can deliver on this.

    Nice Car! Look forward to driving it against some AI or MP in a race.

  • Humberto Roca

    Now this is something special. I have driven the GTR for more than 4 years now and im looking forward to how real this car will handle! Go Kunos!

      I’m looking forward to hearing from you whether or not it’s realistic in AC. Please let us know when it gets here! 🙂

  • Geoff Jen Hall

    Fantastic news love the gtr

  • Jim. C

    Love the GT-R.

    Can we have the road and GT3 versions please?

    • Deatroy

      Both will be included as they got voted most for Nissan Brand.

  • Szilárd Hompoth

    I cannot believe it! For too long we’ve waited for the next-gen simulation, and now it’s here, with next-gen developing attitude. We thank you, Kunos!

    Though I’d prefer more Race-Cars than Street-Cars in AC, it’s great that Kunos now gets more into non-european cars. Great news!

    Also, I’m very happy that AI will soon be ready to go, it will definitely put the AC-experience to a new level 🙂

  • Eric S

    Very cool. Could be close to a full field in Blancpain when all is said and done. Happy happy.
    : )

    • Jim. C

      The more GT3 cars the better!

    I bought AC, but as soon as I get into BMW GT3 or Vette from URD @ Poznań in rF2, I forget about AC, sorry. I don’t wanna troll or sth like this, but AC reminds me PCARS, handling wise which I forfeited. Maybe I have not driven it too much? It was about one hour only … I will give it more time, but by now I don’t trust this product …

    • Jos

      don’t trust this product, it’s very adictive… 😛

      • Gniewko Ostrowski

        dunno, maybe it’s the DFGT I am using? And not native support for this?

      • Saleem Hodge

        Not sure if that is the reason but on my setup it is honestly a work of art. Haven’t gotten Rf2 to run correctly yet. Rest assured pcars has nothing on assetto corsa. I have have all three and haven’t played rfactor 2 since this spring and pcars since September.

      • Michael Hornbuckle

        I’m using DFGT and have 120 hours so far so the wheel works fine.

    • C4

      In what sense exactly? Yes, in ideal condition the car can feel on-rails and you also don’t get (wheel) feedback from bumps and other things too much, you will hear this from many race cars, and in that regard a race prepped car like the BMW GT3 is probably “the worst”. Try to drive aggressively or try some “silly” things on track or some other cars and you will notice the difference, if you drive normally and very calm it will be more subtle.

  • Anthony Birch

    when can we find out the modding details of AC, eg; model and skin formats, modding tools etc etc

    • Michael Hornbuckle

      The templates for the cars that have been released are in the steam-steam apps-common-assettocorsa-dev-templates
      You can make custom skins right now…mod tools won’t be released until V1.0

      • Anthony Birch

        thanks for the reply Michael

  • Silvio

    New nvidia driver for SLI system bringing AC profile. Does anyone tested?
