Assetto Corsa – BMW M3 E30 Cockpit Previews

Kunos Simulazioni has released new cockpit previews of the BMW M3 E30 for Assetto Corsa.

Kunos Simulazioni has released new cockpit previews of the BMW M3 E30 for Assetto Corsa.

The iconic German touring car racer was originally not planned to be part of the initial version of Assetto Corsa, the decision to delay the release has allowed the car to slip into the initial package though.

Based on the BMW M3 E30 road car, the touring car version of BMW’s first ever M3 quickly became one of the most successful race cars around the world.

Powered by a 2.3 liter inline-4 engine tuned up by BMW’s engine guru Paul Rosche, the car put out 300hp at 8.200rpm. The M3 Group A went on to win several high-profile touring car titles around the world, including two European Touring Car Championship trophies.

    I could look at these AC previews till the cows come home. Do they have retirement homes for cows?.

      Yeah, it’s called “Five Guys”

    Z4 > M3

      Stating the obvious without considering the historic and iconic appeal of the car.

      If we consider only performance we would use RedBull x2010 and x2011… or even better we would use only Wipeout HD with all those spaceships.

        I was more referring to the sound they make 🙂

    Looks nice, lots of details!

    I’ve had 2 E30 BMW’s many years ago, one 318is and one 325, both very nice cars!

    Most of the details are not visible while driving. We need good environment details, good sounds, good physics and good forcefeedback. Actually the cockpit can even be dispensed if you have a good set of hardware. What we really need from AC? The game online, ASAP. Kunos can stop posting previews and give some solid date for release.

    • Jos

      indeed, KS remove all those nice little details now! 😉

      I swear, are people who post this here and in pCARS threads built as robots?

      Game development is NOT sequential, people who model cars are not modelling the tracks and making the sounds/physics.

      How damn hard can it be to grasp that concept and think before you post something?

      • Silvio

        Sorry Mr. Fanboy, I forgot that. I thought that Kunos was doing all alone…

      • Dylan H.

        Haha, fanboy.

  • Matt Orr

    I assume it’ll have both the street and racing version then?

    Seeing how we’ve seen the street car several times for a long while now…

    The E30 M3 with an airbag wheel looks awful, never seen one using it.

  • Anonymous

    Aha, did not know that. It looks very airbagish. All M3s ive seen here always had a plain momo wheel or something similar.

    • M.Cologne

      You are right. Most of the M3, especially in motorsport, do not use the stock M-Technik II wheel. Sparco Motorsport wheels are the prefered ones. In street use with my ’86 E30, i prefered the M-Technik I wheel,which is a bit more classic.

    the brake pedal looks about 2cm too far to the right. Maybe this is linked to the wrong braking distances?

    • GamerMuscle

      I think its actually the lack of paint on the interior of the car that’s causing the issues.

    • What

      These screenshots are so disappointing. The grip, turning, and lightness all look arcade and dumbed down.

      • Realkman666

        What do you expect? It’s a game made for Steam.

      • MirceaRad

        You forgot about the sound, I can tell from these screenshots it’ll be plain wrong…

      • Olivier Prenten

        So from a screenshot you can be disappointed about grip and turning! You must be the joker in then next batman! Lol!

    • Pablo Coronel

      I think the gray color is wrong, is not too gray lol

  • Joco Gorenc

    Trolls 🙂 Fantastic work, as usual. And best news is it will be released in first release!
