Maserati MC20 Confirmed for Assetto Corsa Competizione GT2 Car Pack

Assetto Corsa Competizione

The GT2 Car Pack is set for January, and the car reveals just keep on coming! This time it was the turn of perhaps one of the most highly-anticipated cars, the Maserati MC20.

Assetto Corsa Competizione is adding a brand new car class next month, the GT2 class. Consisting of cars that are more powerful but less aerodynamically reliant than GT3 cars, made specifically for more amateur hobby racers.

There are GT2 versions of pre-existing cars, however there are also quite a few bespoke GT2 models. Having already seen the GT2 versions of the Audi R8 and Porsche 911 as well as the 935, we now have the highly-anticipated Maserati MC20.

The MC20 is powered by a 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 that produces 621 horsepower. Back when the GT2 cars were confirmed to be coming to Assetto Corsa Competizione in July 2022, the MC20 had not turned a wheel in competition.

It has since made its first appearance in the final round of the 2023 GT2 European Series season. In that event, LP Racing took a debut pole and P2 podium finish for the MC20.

The confirmation of the MC20 makes it four of the eight cars that are potentially included in the GT2 Car Pack:

  • Audi R8 LMS GT2
  • Brabham BT63 GT2
  • KTM X-BOW GT2
  • Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo GT2
  • Maserati MC20 GT2
  • Mercedes-AMG GT2
  • Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport Evo and 935

It is still unknown how much the GT2 Car Pack will cost.

The GT2 Car Pack will be the first DLC available on ACC since April’s 2023 GT World Challenge Pack, which brought in new Evo versions of the Lamborghini Huracán and McLaren 720S GT3 cars, the Porsche 992 GT3 R and Ferrari 296 GT3.

It also included Circuit Ricardo Tormo, although there is little to no indication of a track being added with the GT2 Car Pack. But of course, set for a Spring release, the heavily-requested Nordschleife will finally be added to ACC.

As always, the console ports of ACC will not receive the latest content drops at the same time as PC. Although PlayStation and Xbox players will be able to race in the same lobbies as each other, which is something at least!
