Having reached full-on version 1.0 launch status late last year, Kunos Simulazioni have announced the first DLC pack for Assetto Corsa, mouth-wateringly titled ‘Dream Pack 1.’
For £11 or your local equivalent (and with 33% off if you pre-order before next Tuesday) you get 10 cars and three circuit layouts. This pack won’t have you realising you’ve wasted your money on one decent cars and 9 clangers either, no… Every single car in this pack is a must-have! From the Classic Alfa Romeo GTA to the McLaren F1 GTR, and from the Sauber Mercedes C9 Group C monster to the Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 known as Godzilla. And in between there’s the likes of the stunning road-going McLaren P1 and Alfa Romeo 4C, racing versions of the Mercedes Benz 190E and Alfa 155 for you to recreate classic 1990’s DTM battles, and the BMW M235i that’s popular in touring and production-based endurance racing. To top it off there’s the loud and proud Corvette C7.R GTE, meaning the Ferrari 458 Italia GTE finally has something equal to race against!
That’s the dream over, now for the Nightmare! 3 layouts of the Green Hell for you to tackle. Recreated in explicit detail, the Nürburgring Nordschleife ‘Ring’ layout allows you to see if you can beat any of those ‘fastest’ records that all the car manufacturers bang on about. There’s also the true-to-life ‘Touristenfahrten’ track day layout, requiring you to enter the pit lane and head through the toll booths before going out for another lap. But the real draw is the full-on Nürburgring 24 layout, utilising the GP loop and pitlane for the ultimate test of driver and car endurance.
