    Seemingly coming out of nowhere, Kunos Simulazioni have confirmed the highly anticipated Ferrari 70th Anniversary Assetto Corsa DLC is on its way, releasing this September 19th!

    Created to mark the 70th anniversary of the Ferrari brand, the new Assetto Corsa DLC offering will contain some of the most iconic road and racing machines produced by the legendary marque, including plenty of historic content and the 2017 specification Formula One car that currently sits second in the Formula One World Drivers Championship.

    As a reminder you can check out the Ferrari Celebration Pack DLC contents below:
    • 1962 250 GTO
    • 1967 330 P4
    • 1967 312/67
    • 1984 288 GTO
    • 2004 F2004
    • 2017 812 Superfast
    • Ferrari SF70H 2017 F1 Car

    With Kunos having confirmed the new DLC is just seven days away from a public release on PC (Xbox One and PS4 to follow at a later date), the Italian development team have released a nice new trailer for one of the most spectacular cars included in the pack, the stunning 1962 issue Ferrari 250 GTO, which can be viewed below:


    Introducing the Ferrari 250 GTO... The 250 GTO model was the pinnacle of the development of the 250 GT series in competition form, whilst still remaining a road car. It made its public debut at the annual pre-season Ferrari press conference in January 1962, and was the only front-engined model on display, with its monoposto and sports racing counterparts all having a mid-engine configuration. The 250 GTO was the ultimate expression of the Ferrari 250 GT car. It was equally at home on the road or track – perhaps the last dual purpose road/race car produced – and has achieved legendary status amongst aficionados of the marque. With only a relatively small production run of thirty-six cars, and with many of the examples produced having a great racing pedigree, it has become one of the icons of Ferrari's production history, with a revered position in collectors' circles.

    Assetto Corsa is a racing simulation from Kunos Simulazioni available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.

    I still can't believe people voted for another F1 car. There was so much choice that they should have done the three highest rated cars.

    Many of these cars will rarely be used in the servers. It seems most only want to race GT3 or do track days at Nords. It is very hard to find populated servers that have cars other than the above.

    Too bad, AC is a great sim to race with and I would love to be involved in more than just the same GT3 races at Spa or Mugello.

    The top car is a replica and has a number of differences from an actual 250GTO. I know because we mistakenly took this very car as our reference in the beginning, only to discover its history later on and realise its proportions and details are off from an original. Please stop spreading nonsense.

    Not interested in the Ferrari pack in particular.....what i'm more interested in is if there will be an update and what it might include (silently prays for mandatory pitstops)

    I think Stefano said that the v1.15 update is mostly technical stuff that was requested by modders.
