Assetto Corsa – P4/5 Competitzione Confirmed

Kunos Simulazioni has confirmed the P4/5 Competizione for Assetto Corsa.

As hinted at by two photos released four days ago, Kunos Simulazioni has now officially confirmed the P4/5 Competitzione to be part of their upcoming title.

Build by James Glickenhaus, the car is a one of its kind creation powered by a Ferrari V8 engine putting out 450hp. The P4/5 competed in the 2011 Nürburgring 24 Hours, finishing in 39th place overall.

Assetto Corsa will include both the 2011 & 2012 spec versions of the car as the P4/5 has received several updates for the upcoming season. The Kunos staff attended a private test of the car for data acquisition, below is a first preview of the 3D model as well as several photos that also hint at a new feature of the title – Helmet view.

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 laser-scanned tracks and fully licensed cars as well as AI – A first for a Kunos title.

    Nice thing, now you’ll be able to compare GTR3 and AC as they’ll both contain the same car. I love that, you can make your own judgement then and that is what Sims should be about.

    I’ll test and probably buy both anyway.

    What’s that CTDP pic of a Formula Masters render doing there ? 🙂

    But awesome stuff from Kunos, confirmed 65.000 polys in their LODA :O

    Shots 3-8 look totally unrealistic. rFactor 2 is much better than this.

    I’m surprised the windscreen isnt made from carbon fibre as well 😛

    Ok so we now know for sure those shots (3 & 4) were photographs and not renders !

    I apologize for being a know it all, but “Competizione” is spelled without the second “t” after teh Competi” part. The “Z” sopund in Italian already includes the T sound. Again, I hate to sound like a know it all. I am Italian and I can’t help it. I studied and spoke the language for half my life.

      Funny that you made a few english mistakes while pointing out someone else’s… 

      It’s a Ying/Yang thing I guess.

        Funny how you made a few – English – mistakes while pointing out someone else’s.

        This will never end 😉

        It is one of the laws of the internet that anyone pointing out spelling or syntax mistakes will make at least one themselves.
        In my case I have a built in excuse: not my native language.

        Your is?

        My point was : if you try to be more righteous than your fellow human, it will come back to you.

        If it wasn’t for your ego, you could have sent a mail to Montoya if you were just concerned by his spelling and not trying to pass for a smart ass in public. 
        At least if you want to show off by pointing out mistakes, don’t make mistakes yourself or you loose all credibility.

        A little humility goes a long way, like you showed in many other posts here on VirtualR.

        But initially I just wanted to tickle you, not make a case and use big words. Pin that on both our egos 😉

        Actually, if it had been an English misspelling I would have used the contact form and tell Montoya offline (actually, I probably would not have said anything), but since it was in a language not his own, I didn’t think it was a big deal pointing out the mistake here. 
        TBH it never even occurred to me to send him a personal email because I am so used to write here that I did it without thinking.
