KUNOS Simulazioni and 505Games are proud to introduce Assetto Corsa v. 1.8: the new build of Assetto Corsa which offers all-new free content, updates and improvements. Build 1.8 includes car reflection and shadow improvements, providing a more consistent and polished graphical appearance, as well as improved performance and a much more stable framerate. Please check the full list of updates in the changelog below.
New content: Audi S1 and the circuit of Monza featuring the Junior layout and Sopraelevata!
The Audi S1 is the new bonus car included as free content in the latest update of Assetto Corsa. Like all Audi S models, the S1 and the S1 Sportback also come with quattro permanent all-wheel drive onboard. At its heart is a hydraulic multi-plate clutch located on the rear axle. Its specifically tuned control software boasts a decidedly dynamic setup. The electronic differential lock with the fine-tuned wheel-selective torque control is a function of the Electronic Stabilization Control (ESC).
Let’s go back to Grand Prix era!
Finally, the Sopraelevata is available in Assetto Corsa: The legendary speed ring of Monza is available, as well as the historic Junior layout. The Sopraelevata has been reproduced using Laserscan technology. Get ready to feel the thrill of speed and danger of the 60’s, in all its beauty.
