Kunos Simulazioni posted the sixth teaser screenshot in a row, revealing more content for the upcoming Assetto Corsa Dream pack #2.

 

As with the previous teasers, the screenshot shows us a view in the cockpit. Especially community members who are in their 40s will instantly recognise the dash of the Lamborghini Countach. Build between 1974 and 1990, This Italian high-performance sports car defined the word “Supercar”.

 

The Assetto Corsa Dream Pack #2 will include 10 cars and the Circuit of Catalunya. So far Kunos Simulazioni’s licensing manager Marco Massaruttos has shown us Dream Pack #2 preview screenshots of the following cars:

 

 

  • Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus SCG 003
  • RUF RT12R
  • Audi R8 LMS
  • BMW M4
  • Ford GT40
  • Lamborghini Countach

 

The Lamborghini Countach was styled by Marcello Gandini of the Bertone design studio and instantly became one of the most iconic supercars in history. The Countach was in production between 1974 and 1990 and during this time the original Countach LP500 prototype evolved into models such as the LP400, LP400 S, LP500, LP Turbo S, and 5000 Quattrovalvole.

 

Underneath its aluminium body, the car featured a tubular space frame and fiberglass underbody resulting in a very strong and very light chassis weighing only 1,400 kg. The chosen engine for the prototype was a 3929 cc Lamborghini V12 that was connected to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The V12 produced 370 hp. For later models, the engine displacement was increased to 4754 cc for the LP 500S and 5167 cc for the 5000 QV.

Kunos Simulazioni have revealed details on the upcoming “Dream Pack 2″ DLC pack for Assetto Corsa.

The Dream Pack 2 will be available starting October 8th, selling for 7,99€.

 

The pack will consists of a laser-scanned version of Barcelona’s Circuit de Catalunya, home of the Spanish Formula One Grand Prix.

Furthermore, the pack will introduce the following nine new cars to Assetto Corsa:

 

 

  • Lamborghini Countach 5000 Quattro Valvole
  • Lamborghini Huracan GT3
  • Ford GT40 MK1
  • Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus SCG003
  • AUDI R8 ULTRA 2014
  • RUF RT12R AWD
  • RUF RT12R FWD
  • BMW M4 Coupe
  • BMW M4 Coupe Akrapovic Edition

 

Alongside the Dream Pack 2, Kunos Simulazioni will also release version 1.3 of Assetto Corsa, featuring the following changes:

 

Physics

 

64-bit natively supported and car physics calculated on multi-thread. The physics engine has been reworked to become completely multithreaded: as a result, the driving precision is augmented, the accuracy further improved and the physics solver has enough horsepower to completely resolve any difficult calculations any speed, achieving butter smooth Force Feedback and complete elimination of signal noise and vibrations. We’ll be back with more details on physics updates when the new build will be released next week.

 

Graphics

 

2D/3D models, textures and shaders have been updated and improved, in order to keep the standards reached with the latest content. Now windscreens receive shadows, and a new camera facing feature improves the rendering of 2D/3D objects on track. A first basic support for dynamic objects on tracks has been added as well, and it will be improved in future updates, with the aim to get a more immersive environment.

 

Sfx

 

Fine tuning and improved algorithms for audio editing: all new cars benefit by use of new techniques of recording and sampling for engines, interiors and exhaust systems, also thanks to the technical cooperation of Akrapovic. This allows to recreate a more detailed audio trace and the exclusive detail of each car, improving the immersion while driving. Content that are available already in Assetto Corsa will be updated during the process, to bring them to a higher level of realism and in line with the latest quality standards.

 

Multiplayer

 

Dedicated server has been optimized in order to improve general stability.

New parameters and features have been added to server configuration, in order to please the requests of gamers who are looking for a more comprehensive online experience.

Besides the Dream Pack #2, Kunos Simulazioni also released the Assetto Corsa V1.3 update, introducing a number of game engine improvements and a selection of new features.

The core game now supports native 64-bit code, and features a reworked multithreaded physics set resulting in a better and more precise driving behaviour. This should also result in a better force feedback implementation, eliminating signal noise and random vibrations.

Assetto Corsa’s top-class physics engine has been constantly evolving and improving. The AC physics code already includes various industry-first features, such as advanced active aerodynamics, four-wheel drive simulation with active differentials, realistic driving assists systems, unique hybrid engines simulation and advanced tyre-wear features, such as blistering, graining and flat spots.

Assetto Corsa Version 1.3 also features a completely reworked tire model that includes new parameters such as tyre-speed sensitivity, combined grip, slip angles and ratios, load sensitivity, rolling resistance and most importantly, separated heating for surface and core temperatures. For the full list of fixes, features and improvement, check out the Changelog.

The 1.3 update is free so you still get the benefits from that.

 

Yes, but i'm interested about BMW M4 and Countach :(

 

Also free is the knowledge that others out there are driving the Huracan GT3 :sulk:

 

I'm waiting for Lamborghini Veneno, but not sure if Kuno's have license for that.
