    Assetto Corsa Ferrari F2004.jpg
    Kunos Simulazioni have been at it again, producing two excellent new videos featuring cars from the new Ferrari Celebration DLC recent released to Assetto Corsa.

    Already having gone down very well in the sim racing community, the new Ferrari 70th Anniversary DLC release would contain some superb machines from the history of this famous brand.

    Gearing up towards completing the full set of "introduction" videos from the latest DLC release, Kunos have pushed live a some very attractive of footage for the 2004 era Formula One Grand Prix car from the Scuderia, the F2004, which can be seen below:



    Not wanting to be outdone on the road going front, the 2017 Ferrari 812 Superfast has also received the video treatment, with a rather attractive and superbly appropriate video release below:


    Both cars, alongside the 2017 F1 challenger, the stunning 1967 250 GTO, '67 330 P4 and 312/67, plus the pure 80's style of the GTO are available now for the simulation as part of the Ferrari 70th Anniversary Celebration DLC, downloadable for just £5.59 from the Assetto Corsa Steam store.

    If you want to know more about the new DLC, don't forget to check out our interview and release article here.

    If you watched the videos already, and want to find an excuse to stay off the gaming rig for just a little bit longer, check out what Kunos themselves have to say about the cars below:

    Ferrari F2004
    The year 2004, the record season for Ferrari, went into a second act with the 2004 Championship: out of the 18 GPs, the Scuderia won 15 races (13 by Schumacher, 2 by Barrichello), 8 one-two wins, 12 pole positions for a total of 262 points in the Constructors' Championship. Already in August, Ferrari archived the Championship files: at the Hungarian GP the Scuderia won the Constructors' Title – the 14th in its history – with a one-two win, while Schumacher gained his fifth title in a row, the seventh of his career, in Belgium, on the same track where he debuted in the year 1991.

    The season made history also thanks to one of the most competitive single-seaters ever built: the F2004, fitted with the new engine dubbed 053, a 10-cylinder unit with 865 bhp at 18,300 rpm, which exceeded all expectations in terms of performance and reliability, also regarding the new challenge set by the regulations, which aimed at reducing costs: one engine per race weekend, with an average lifespan of 800 instead of 350km.

    2017 Ferrari Superfast
    Have you checked out the Ferrari 812 Superfast yet? Ferrari chose the 87th edition of the Geneva International Motor Show for the world premiere of the new 12-cylinder berlinetta, the 812 Superfast, the most powerful and fastest Ferrari in the marque's history.

    This new car not only introduces a plethora of innovative features but is also particularly significant as the V12 series marked the official start of the glorious Prancing Horse story in 1947, 70 years ago. The 812 Superfast thus ushers in a new era in Ferrari 12-cylinder history, in doing so building on the invaluable legacies of the F12berlinetta and F12tdf. It is aimed at clients demanding the most powerful and exclusive Ferrari in the range: an uncompromising sports car that will deliver exhilarating driving both on road and track yet also be comfortable enough to allow its owners to enjoy it as an all-round experience.

    Assetto Corsa is available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC now.

    Most powerful road-going ferrari would be the "Laferrari" would it not; though that is a very exclusive model with electric.
    812 is incredible, the "normal" GT car :confused:
    What next after this crazy (but great) bhp war between mclaren v ferrari.

    Nice videos for Steam page. But less exciting for me now, that I have already used the cars in the game for days. Good way to build pre-release hype for console market

    The 720S apparently is making ~700 hp at the wheels when people dyno'd it LOL, that's a 800+ hp motor right there. Those guys are severely underrating that car. This new age hp war is intense. Can't wait to see what their next car is gonna be like, fingers crossed it's that rumoured 3 seater akin to the old F1. :D

    I like the engine of 812. Lots of power, lots of torque, a V12 natural. The best FR car so far today.

    The F2004 is just insane driving pleasure, had a blast running laps around Imola, the noise from the V10 is just audio porn, the cars handling feels spot on. It's close to the best hot lap single seat sim experiences Ive had so far, with a few aero changes I was putting down low 1:20's on medium tyres and default fuel, still slow by alien standards, but awesomeness for me:thumbsup::D Will be spending more time in it without a doubt, would also love to see an F2004 cup, hint hint.:):)

    The Ferrari F2004 for Assetto Corsa is the best car ever implemented in any sim in the milky way Galaxy.

    The first drive had me giggling through a smirk in Codies F1 2017, and I couldn't help but dream of a VR version with actual physics!

    The 812 Superfast has become one of my favorite modern flappy paddle shift cars. Power for days and handles pretty nice too. Lots of fun on the street/hillclimb mod tracks.
