R3E – Zakspeed Capri Turbo Group 5 Announced

Simbin has announced the newest addition to their RaceRoom Racing Experience title as the Zakspeed Capri Turbo joins the free to play title.

Build to the FIA Group 5 regulations and based on the Ford Capri, Zakspeed’s turbo monster dominated the Deutsche Rennsport Meisterschaft back in its heyday.

The car was driven by some of Germany’s most iconic racing legends such as Hans Heyer & Klaus Ludwig and soon R3E users will be able to purchase the car. Until then, you can check out previews of it below.

    Love Group 5, golden age of motorsports. Just hope they can deliver some good physics.

    Jeez, every sim really is getting the same stuff, aren’t they?

    More power to ‘em – it’s a great car already in Project CARS. The more the merrier, I guess.

      At first I thought exactly the same but then I actually rememberd where we have that car: it’s only in rf1 and pCars. Rf1 doesn’t really count as any half known ever made racecar exists there and it’s not officialy licensed. It’s not in rf2 or ac (yet).
      So in fact it’s only in pCars and R3E. The thing is, every pCars screenshot gallery has 3 million capri shots and DRM mod for rf1 is so good so it’s burnt in our memories :O)

        Well, I was mainly referring to my feeling that when I hear about new licensing deals reached for the in-development sims it seems like another sim already has the same licensing deal. Ford, Lotus, McLaren, BMW, etc. Seems like we’re getting a lot of duplicates.

        Not looking to start a flame war, though, at least it gets us good comparisons.

    Well we know it will sound as it should that’s for sure. Now, let’s have some open wheelers !!!

      Agree!
      Turismo/prototypes may be very fast in real life, because of the sense of speed in the body.
      In sims, anything less than F1-like is slow.

    This is the sound! This is the sound!

    This one is very welcome!

    I’m happy for all the new content across all the titles. Right now I can’t stop with Assetto Corsa and R3E. Both are great. Assetto whole engine is absolutely amazing. R3E rule with excellent sounds and physics / FFB after some adjustments doing the job perfectly as well. Just almost exploded with RUF at Lakeview. It was hell of a ride, like a rally master, but crashed 2 times ;-P and damaged the car, still full of a great racing feeling from the road, trough the wheel to my brain, maybe the sounds supporting that a lot as well… I loved iRacing, but for now I’ve unsubscribed for a while because a lot of new stuffs around (I have used it for offline or ghost racing anyway after 2 accidents) I hate to make an accident! With R3E I can hunt the best and not crash anyone :D And when Assetto release full content I will cry all the day by happiness, then will buy another cars at R3E and after all RF2 final will come with HistorX mod and rule them all! ;)
