It’s been announced on twitter that Kunos Simuluazioni co-founder and executive manager Marco Massarutto will be a guest for the Ferrari Velas Esports Series Launch on Tuesday 22nd March, a day before the Challenger Pack DLC launches.

Could we see the unveiling of a Ferrari at this and what car could it be?

We may well see the Ferrari 488 Challenge Evo, which was unveiled (physically) back in 2019, alongside the 2020 Ferrari 488 GT3.

In previous years, the 488 Challenge competition has been on Assetto Corsa, so there would be a step over to ACC if this were to be the announcement.

So far we’ve seen the 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.

The BMW M2 CS - 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.

And the Lamborghini 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.
