Assetto Corsa Competizione | Challenger Pack Complete

Ferrari 488 Challenge Evo.jpg
A lot of people were expecting a Ferrari reveal during the Ferrari Velas Esports launch event, but no Kunos announced the new Ferrari 488 Challenge Evo yesterday on Twitter.

Whilst we were expecting the reveal to take place during the esports launch event, the Ferrari will feature at the event, so make sure to tune in to learn more about this new addition.

That means all cars have now been announced for this highly anticipated DLC pack. The pack is due to land tomorrow (23rd March) and as of yet, there are still no news about how much this DLC pack will cost. The cars are:
  • BMW M2 CS Racing - The M2 CS Racing is a legitimate race car, though it won't fit into the main GT3 and GT4 classes you'll find in Assetto Corsa Competizione. Like the Huracan Super Trofeo and Porsche Cup cars already present in the title, this new BMW is intended to be used in one-make races. BMW's M2 CS Racing car is a stripped down version of the M2 road car. It's powered by an inline twin-turbo 6-cylinder engine, which is mated to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. All but the most essential parts are stripped from the interior, which keeps the car light and nimble.
  • Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evo II - Similar to Evo versions of other cars in ACC such as the Ferrari 488 and Lamborghini Huracan, the updated Audi doesn't represent a drastic change from the outgoing (Evo) version. The LMS Evo II offers an improved rear wing and front air intake, plus improved suspension. Under the hood, its 5.2 litre V10 engine is pumping out 585 horsepower, but the Evo II's torque curve has been tweaked. Fans of the existing Audi and Lamborghini models should have no trouble adjusting to driving the new car, but can likely expect a slightly improved driving experience in the car.
  • Lamborghini Huracan Trofeo Evo2 - The Super Trofeo Evo2 is the latest version of the this one make series, which has seen radical aerodynamic refinements over its predecessor. Powering this car is a 5.2 litre V10 engine that delivers 620 HP.
  • Porsche 911 GT3 Cup (Type 992) - The Porsche 911 GT3 Cup (992) is described by Porsche as “broad and brutish” being more aggressive than its predecessor and even more of a pure race car than ever before. The new 911 GT3 Cup produces more downforce with a gooseneck rear wing and larger front lip. The extra downforce means higher cornering speeds and more direct turn-in, which result in faster lap times. There’s 50 hp more than the 991 version, but the 992 does weigh approximately 60kg more.

Are you excited about the new DLC? Are there any cars that you want adding to ACC?

Cars are always welcome. Also looking to see if there are patch notes for the current tire model tweaks.

As a side mention, if when the track packs drop in mid/late summer, and the new GTWorld season has started. Hopefully they complete the GT3 car additions. Looks like the Huracan Evo 2 will be making its debut soon.

Seeing the Audi Evo2 in the preview video with the upcoming "46" livery I would expect that known/shown 2022 liveries from the early tests for GT World Challenge might drop as well in this update. This was done before with the 2021 ones IIRC.
With this even the new BMW M4 should get one or two good ROWE liveries (hopefully).
 
New content choices are always welcome, whether I were to purchase or not to purchase. Diversity in the sim racing world is as desirable as diversity in the real world.

Is there a chance we also get the M2 CS Racing 'Clubsport' with 450HP in ACC, just like in RF2? Or only just the '350HP'(?) version?

Cheers

AFAIK they announced the car pack to release in Spring and the track pack for summer (End of June or july probably)

Ok....Nice.....but a lot of new tracks include the dlc is much better then only this cars.:(
 
Curious about the new cars, especially the Porsche. Have to say I am not that excited as ACC already has other cup cars and I haven't seen them grab much attention. Plus, as a few other users I tend to stick to one car only so I already have plenty of "unused" cars in the game.

Yes, this is an esports game and it is great that big manufacturers like BMW, Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini are holding their esports tournaments on ACC. I think it is only fair that they do so because ACC is a great sim that offers intense racing.

If I had to express my opinion though I would prefer new tracks any day. Cars in SRO do not change so often, so the GT3 cars keep being "new". On the other hand tracks change and this is not reflected in ACC. There haven't been new tracks in ACC for more than a year now, and although something has been hinted at we'll have to wait for a few more months.

This is a bit disappointing IMHO, because while the new cars will be raced by the usual aliens in the branded esports series, I am afraid the vast majority of ACC users may make little use of them so they may not have as big an impact on the user base.

I hope to be wrong of course and I'll try the cars first, especially the Porsche! And I also suspect the DLC will be rather cheap.. if not free. But I'd be happy to give a few quids to the guys at Kunos!

The 992 "only" has more 25 more horsepower than the 991.2 (510 vs 485).

But yeah, it should be quite a bit quicker on the straight.
 
Is the Ferrari 488 Challenge Evo for racing against its own type like the Porsche cup or will be it part of the GT3 racing?

I quite like the sound of a lot of these cars but there are already about 70% of the cars that I don't drive so I'm not sure if I'll buy the DLC or not
 
I just wanna share one though: everyone wants for some new tracks (including me)... but if you search at MP servers right now there's only monza, spa and maybe zolder or nurburgring.

If you are not in leagues like Actroll or LFM, seems like a lot of players (sadly) didn't care about new tracks. Somebody knows why?

Yeah that's an interesting point actually, I'll always have a soft spot for Monza because it's the track that really got me interested in sim racing. I largely play offline so I will welcome more tracks at some point but I'll probably then go back to the ones I know and love anyway!
