Ferrari F458 GTE for GTR2 1.0 – Released

Top Gun has released his Ferrari F458 GTE mod for GTR2.

The mod brings Ferrari’s current GTE challenger to Simbin’s long running GT racing simulation, coming with plenty of features and liveries as listed in the read me below.

Features
* 2 body styles (2011 / 2012)
* 3 front hood styles (2011 no covers/ 2011 with covers / 2012)
* 4 front bumper styles (Standard / AF Corse Endurance Lights / Standard Endurance Lights / VLN Endurance Lights)
* 2 diffuser styles (ACO version / VLN version)
* 2 cockpit styles (2011 Gear Lever Command / 2012 Steering Wheel Gear Command)
* 6 styles for wheels (Silver/Black rims with Michelin, Dunlop or Hankook tyres)
* 2 Different Physics (2011 / 2012)
* Full working lights (Front / Rear / Brake / Pit Limit / Night Endurance)
* Lower LODs for low profile machines

Based on the Ferrari F458 Italia road car, the F458 GT2 is Ferrari’s weapon of choice in the fiercely-contested GT2 classes of the European & American Le Mans Series. Replacing the F430, the car made its competition debut at the 2011 Sebring 12 Hours and scored its first class win at the 1000km of Spa Francorchamps back in May 2011.

Ferrari 458 GT2/GTE mod for GTR2 by TopGun
————————————————-

This mod brings to you the Ferrari 458 GT2/GTE model, in 2011 and 2012 specs, as it runned in these 2 seasons.

55 different skins for 10 different championships.

The model is scratch made by me, with the help of some friends in credits, using 3ds max, ZModeler and 3dsimed.
No parts have been converted from other simulators to create this mod.

The development of this mod (the 1st 3D project for me) took two years of hard work, please respect my effort as it deserves.

ISSUES
—————————————————————————————————

The mod has been tested on both new and non new GTR2 installations without issues.

The only small issue derives from the particular pit-limit light system of the real car. Since with speed
limiter on also the direction lights begin to flash, and since in GTR2 the pit lights are also rain lights,
in case of wet races you’ll have the direction lights always switched on.

If you have other Ferrari 458 GT2 mods on your machine, you could have twice or more times the same
car in a championship (according with the slot number used), with possible mismatch when loading
the race. For this reason I suggest you to avoid using this mod together with other Ferrari 458 GT2/GTE mods,
or at least to change the classes entries to avoid having the same car twice in a race.

If you manage some issues using this mod, please report them and I’ll try to give you a solution.

    Great! A long awaited mod! Can’t wait to drive it.

  • http://racingrenders.com/ F1Racer

    Cool ! Grabbing this now.

  • Mario Strada

    I don’t know what I would do without GTR2. It is still the only Sim with full weather, day/night transitions, actual pit stops with crew (primitive as they are) and pretty decent driving.

  • Matt Orr

    GTR2 is the new GPL. It just. Will. Not. Die. EVER!

    And good thing!

  • William J. Smith

    Cool I just down loaded this and plays awesome but all the liveries are all red…

  • http://www.facebook.com/francesco.arena.3363 Francesco Arena

    Yes it is necessary to use high res settings in the advanced graphics menu, since I developed the mod in full resolution! Cheers, TopGun

    I’d love to see an rF2 version of this. Whilst I love GTR2 it is really looking super dated these days.

    Great Mod ! Fantastic to drive ! Thanks a lot !

    Windshields are very dark (blue). Hard to look out even in sunshine, worse to drive in rain. Is there a solution ?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000119964258 Tomas Beha

    Well done!

  • Cobra

    I agree with Hellracer Brasil the inside view through the windscreen is way to dark
    Apart from that it’s a great mod thanks
    Will the template be available for making skins

  • Professional Operator
