Assetto Corsa will be available in Q1 2013, the title will feature licensed cars from manufacturers such as Ferrari, BMW & Lotus. Assetto Corsa is set to be released in Q1 2013.

      Still three more cars to go, and the GT3 and GTE cars would be my guesses for two of them.

    I feel like the tech preview is almost here. Hopefully before the weekend, can’t wait. Also praying it will run on my shitty laptop.

      Well if your laptop is shitty I wouldn’t expect it to run much, unless you turn down details so much it will look bad.. judging from rf2 and pCars requirements, all new sims will need decent firepower to run.

  • Flo

    probably the best car selection ever… I LIKE! (apart from the GT series of cause that simply had all cars 😉 )

  • Me

    I’m in Kansas City and we’re in the middle of a 12″-15″ snow storm…I would LOOOOOVE to be snowed in with the tech preview…

    That’s a very bold move Kunos. The F40 is incredibly hard to get right.

    I’ve been disappointed by at least something on every attempt to do a virtual F40 justice so far (whether that is physics, visuals, or sound) but good luck to you!

  • Ricoo

    Voted 🙂

  • Juhan Voolaid

    Uhhh, such a classic car.

  • http://www.facebook.com/nicolas.grignon Nicolas Grignon

    Have you heard the sound yet??? Is Lotus a brand of lawnmowers??? Please,Kunos, just tell me the Lotus sound is just replacement sounds, right? I was sure that something would go wrong with this awaited messiah…. once again, they f—-ed the sound, I can’t believe it ! hear for yourself: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=avSHQl_if-0&feature=player_embedded

      You should never judge how anything sounds from a YouTube clip. Their compression always distorts the sound.

        Sorry but this is this is direct feed… and it sounds like S—T, seriously…

        Breathe, Nicolas, breathe ! You are anxious because you live in the future with your mind… Enjoy the moment instead, you’ll feel much happier 😉

      Maybe you need some better speakers, sounds just fine on my Edifiers.
      The sim is a cracker…!
