    Only 12+ hours late πŸ™‚ Guess there wasnt any PCARS news today.

      While I’m an AC addict these days because I love the gameplay, I see it the other way around because for me a single picture should not be considered as a news worthy. That said, this pic is quite nice! The dirt on the cars, the imperfections on the barriers and the kerbs, all these blemishes makes the whole scenery much more realistic and I love it.

        “a single picture should not be considered as news worthy”

        Do you want to think about what you just said ? πŸ™‚

        Ok in this case, I grant you, the pic is the main thing to see as we know the Corvette is coming in the DLC. But now we get to see it.
        KS certainly considered is newsworthy.

        However, it’s not the pictures than make something newsworthy, it’s the actual NEWS. Imagine a mod group made a small write-up of a mod they had in the works and what was going on. But there was no (or 1) pictorial accompaniment. Does the news not get posted because it’s not newsworthy ?

        If other sites are re-posting this pic then why should VR be any different. It is news and news that some want to see.
        Maybe you could have said “I don’t consider a single picture to be newsworthy”. But you stated it across the board.
        I couldn’t disagree more. I don’t need pics in my news but they certainly are a bonus. This news could have been posted without the pic by the way πŸ™‚ But then people would have wanted it, so there it is. πŸ™‚

        Ok if you like to quote people you should quote them properly. I said “for ME a single picture should not be considered as news worthy”. I didn’t impose my view on the world, I just expressed a personal opinion to someone who expressed that virtualR was just about project cars being on top all the time. If, as you said, the news would be a modding group publishing a small write-up (information) of course the news would be news worthy with or without any picture. Never in my short reply I said something that would oppose this. I meant that for me, this site was almost being too nice to make publicity for a single picture as to me, it’s not news worthy. And I even elaborated into saying how I liked the picture so I’m far from complaining here.

        “Maybe you could have said “I don’t consider a single picture to be newsworthy”

        This is exactly what I said. Maybe as English is my second language my sentence got interpreted wrong?

        Anyway, sorry if my comment about a single picture not being newsworthy to me offended anyone. πŸ™‚

        Guess I missed the ‘for me’ part then. Still, my point stands.

      12 hours late? Are you serious dude?

      The news posting on this site is run by one single person who has to work, sleep and occasionally have a life outside of sim racing as well.

      Seriously, the sense of entitlement some people have is ridiculous

    • http://racingrenders.com/ F1Racer

      There was actually. It just didn’t get posted. Don’t ya just hate it when AC steals all the headlines ?

      P.S. Sorry my reply was 6 hours late. I also have a life.

  • 2Air

    stop teasing! BRING IT!! aaaaaaargh

  • Roger Wallentin

    C7R looks mean!! Amazing light reflections on the right front bumper!!

    AC is turning out to be such a gem visually, I find myself taking snapshots in the photo mode with awesome scenery and such realistic car visuals. Its such a complete package with authentic physics, huge mod community and content as well as stunning visuals.

    • wajdi nujeidat

      Nice screens!

    • Hugo Stiglitz

      The visuals are far from stunning unless you’re used to rfactor or GTR 2. Frankly they look outdated even compared to GT6 let alone the likes of pCars or any current gen console racing game

      • svdb

        Nice trolling. Project cars looks terribly overdone, AC has a more clean look, without all those horrible GPU-killing effects.

    • monster ZERO

      Beautiful shot! Which track is that?

      • Skytrill

        I was about to ask exactly the same! Though it was Lake Louise at first but it isn’t.

      • Freddie Seng

        Suzuka

      • Jovica Ilic

        With that famous wheel in the back.. it can only be one place πŸ˜€

      • Skytrill

        That one I know cause it’s my favorite track.

        I was asking about the first picture of the batch. πŸ™‚

    • cubadoo1

      call that a shot!

      • jotaf1df

        Please what are the tracks in picture 1 and 2 ? Thank you so much guys.

  • Roy Rki

    How will this be balanced? To match the GT3 or GT2 class?

    • Troels Hadberg

      Should be closest to GT2, performancewise. The E stands for endurance, and the class is step down from the prototype classes, and since GT1 and GT3(EU) is gone, the C7R GTE class is mixed Pro and Am GT classes, faster than the remaining GT3 classes.

    • Matt Orr

      Should go directly head to head with the 458 GT2, both race in the GTE class, which was formerly known as the GT2 class.

    • Chris D

      depends, if it’s Tudor Spec it will be a bout 1 sec per lap faster than GTE spec

  • RKipker

    Simple question; if I remember right, is this a free DLC for alpha/beta owner’s?
    Either way, I’m all in, just either forgot or never knew… LOL!

    • Marcel

      Who owns the game since early access get a discount on the Dream DLC

  • Petros Dialektakis

    Nice action photo of the Corvette, now show us the real screenshot. πŸ˜‰

  • Bill Wester

    Where’s the preview?

  • Freddie Seng

    what’s the third car in the back?

    • QUF

      looks like the bmw m3 gt2

      • Jardier

        Nissan GTR?

    • Matt Orr

      Black with the red stripes? Nissan GTR GT3.

  • Jardier

    I Hope for a little better Helmet/Face update too πŸ˜€

  • Brandon Miller

    Awesome! Vette looks dirty. And that’s a good thing! πŸ˜€

  • David Massieux

    And in the meantime we have SimTraxx’s roads to enjoy πŸ˜€
