GTR3 – Corvette C6.R GT2 Licensed

Simbin has added the next licensed vehicle to their upcoming GTR3 title.

Following the licensing announcement of the Glickenhaus P4/5 Competizione, Simbin has secured the next car to appear in their upcoming GTR3 title as the Corvette C6.R GT2 will be part of the new title.

The C6.R is the successor of Corvette’s ultra-successful C6.R GT1-class challenger, the Pratt & Miller outfit left the GT1 class for GT2 in the 2009 season due to the lack of opponents in the bigger GT class.

The car is powered by a 5.5 liter V8 engine putting out 470hp, enough power to help the car win the GTE class of the 2011 Le Mans 24 Hours. There are no in-game previews of the car available yet, instead we get to listen to a sound sample of the car’s mighty V8 engine.

    “ü” 🙂 . Anyway Corvette allways sounds good

    Looking nice. I’m really looking forward to see what Simbin will offer with GTR3. I hope moddability wise they will go back to their roots like GTR 2. Good luck Simbin! can’t wait to play it!

      Do you think that Race07/GTREvo were harder to mod than GTR2? I think it’s nearly the same (except the encrypted files maybe).

    The sound sample does not sound as good as it can but all the other effects on the sound is just marvelous, really a new world noise in simracing.

    Aahh you guys convinced me already on the sounds! …now it’s time to show us some real nice vid!

  • StarFoXySxv550

    To me this sounds amazing. Not like a game at all. Call me fooled.

  • Philip Antonia

    They could just redo the content from GTR2 on this new engine and I’d be happy :).

    Can’t wait to find what else GTR3 has in store for us!!!

    sounds gr8 … from 1:27 you can hear some environmental echoes, which is gr8 prognostic in this matter.

  • Juhan Voolaid

    Can we see it released at the end of 2012?

  • Jann Dircks

    Hell Yeah! I LOVE that car! Now GTR3 is a must buy for me 😀

  • Markus Ott

    Corvette is a nice car, but a single GT2 car doesn’t make the competition. I hope they will get more GT2 cars.

  • Charles Sami Amyouni

    Impressive sounds indeed – but like everyone is saying… we need some real in-game demo vids… There’s nothing to be embarrassed if SimBin is using a more enhanced version of the ISIEngine…

    LOL joke! – Anyways we’ll wait patiently until the time comes SimBin isn’t shy anymore… in other words looking forward into it.

    Far better than any other Corvette sound in any PC sim/game right now. Only problem… it still doesn’t sound like the real one. When the real Corvette passes, the Sound completely changes because you no longer hear the engine noise but the exhaust pipes and they don’t growl deeply like the engine, they scream like a volcano loaded with TNT just for the fun of more explosions. We need that. Try that SimBin, please.
