    Assetto Corsa JDM Mazda MX5 Cup 2.jpg
    Building up to the release of Assetto Corsa's latest DLC pack, Kunos Simulazioni have revealed another batch of sneak previews relating to the upcoming new content additions.

    With the stirringly good images of the hotly anticipated Mazda MX5 Cup race car receiving more that their fair share of attention it is perhaps easy to discount the awesome Nissan 370Z Nismo that should prove a hit with drift fans throughout the game.

    Already an impressively powerful and agile machine, the aid of the legendary Nismo tuning arm turns this relatively humble machine into a fire breathing beast that is sure to provide a delightfully engaging driving experience.

    The Japanese DLC pack for Assetto Corsa is due for release on Wednesday 19th May. No firm details regarding exactly what can be expected in the upcoming pack have been revealed, adding yet more excitement to what is shaping up to be a promising new pack of cars for the simulator.


    Keep an eye out for some great new community created skins for these latest cars in our RaceDepartment Assetto Corsa Mods section.

    RaceDepartment hold many great racing events using the Assetto Corsa software, check out our Assetto Corsa Racing Club for your chance to book a place on the grid at one of our many great racing nights.

    Bet that MX5 cup will be a riot to race.

    if that MX5-cup car won't get any more players to play AC, then nothing will.

    *May 18.

    Always happy to support the developer of my favorite sim, and looking forward to experience the new content. Too bad there is no track tagging along with the pack, like Laguna Seca for Mazda cup or Suzuka to fully dive into the atmosphere of Japan, but new stuff is always appreciated.
    Strange that free Mazdas are not coming at the same time, but also understandable from a certain perspective.

    probably down to time constraints. Would just be way too many cars to cater for.

    Hopefully once they sort out the whole console debacle they can get back to adding more content. Remember all the things yet to come this year:

    Some people be like, "The Amuse 350Z better be in that pack or I ain't buying". Truthfully though, if it ain't, i'm not buying.

    Mazda MX-5 CUP needs to be shifted with H shifter, right? If this is the case, I will buy it for sure and also even run this game after really long time :)

    Looking forward to this, but adding another three versions of Silverstone and Monza isn't very exciting.

    Glorious mid summer tropical storm over here, local power lines got wrecked. No electricity since yesterday. FML I can't touch that shiny RX7 today. Drooling over previews on phone at work. Confirmed, the universe hates me.

    No, that's not adding more excitement, that's just poor customer communication.
    I hate it when companies don't share informations in a timely manner.

    I'm actually rather surprised that Suzuka isn't included in the DLC. It really would make sense. Plus it's such a good track, and non of the Suzuka mods really do it justice.

    Updates (and DLC) usually drop around Noon Central US time.
