    Coming on March 31st, Kunos Simulazioni have today revealed details of the second free bonus car pack to hit the popular Italian racing simulator, Assetto Corsa.

    Featuring the Corvette C7 Stingray, Ford Mustang and Fiat Abarth 595 alongside a new desert style 'Black Cat County' track, Bonus Pack 2 is a nice addition for fans to enjoy alongside all the promised goodies due to come in the Version 1.5 release on the same date.

    Black Cat County is a new and attractive-looking fictional circuit that will come in three configurations and could well prove to be a wonderful playground for those with a leaning towards sideways drift-style action in the game.

    The Fiat Abarth will form part of the Xbox One and PS4 release content due to launch on June 3rd in Europe and June 7th in North America with the C7 Stingray and Ford Mustang coming to console in the ‘Prestige Pack’ pre-order incentive at select retailers.

    Don't forget to have a look at our recent exclusive interview for discussions around the console release and check out our Assetto Corsa forums and Racing Club for great online racing against your fellow sim drivers.

    Looking forward to version 1.5 and the free bonus content? Enjoying the game so far? Let us know in the comments section below!

    It'd be lovely if the Black Cat thingy track is somewhere around the length of Trento. One can only hope. :p

    No, I was kidding. Kunos apparently molded this track after those in the American West, specifically the Mohave. SMS has already done this, but with a real Honda test track. It works out quite nicely for testing.

    Great news! I was hoping to be honest that FXX K, 488 and Audi would have been included in this as well. Now we have to wait until June. :mad: Well I do hope they come to PC at all and hopefully on that date then. We know FXX K is licensed for Steam but there was no word on 488. Though I see no reason why Steam version would get excluded.

    Otherwise great little pack to keep us entertained until then plus an opportunity to rediscover track that we already know so well, in a new light.

    Its going to be great to play Need for Speed Hot Pursuit with proper physics. :D The scenery and the cars definitely remind of some hot desert runs, plus an excellent opportunity to let the road hypercars stretch some tires on a road. The ones that are already in the game as well as others that have been announced, like Aventador.

    PS I hope these 2 are manual. :rolleyes:

    wow to the angry votes on my comment... whats the problem? you really want to say how great it is to get such ****? ok its free but who needs street cars? if i want to drive streetcars i would buy gt because there i would have 500 more of them... or nfs because i can add some nice bumpers there :p

    i bought ac as sim and was hyped at the early access and now i get more and more tired of this game... just like pcars another semisemisemiiwanttobeasimbutimjustagraphicsblenderandwitheverynewdlckunosisloughinglouder...

    If this is not Sim, there's no such thing as Sim
