Kunos Simulazioni's Licensing Project Manager Marco Massarutto has shared two brand new images of some interesting upcoming content for Assetto Corsa, the little known Czech built Praga R1 sportscar. Weighing in at 592kg and producing 210bhp from a Renault Sport Formula 2010 2.0 Engine, the Praga R1 is designed as an "Lightweight, Extreme downforce, Full-carbon, High safety, Low running cost" sports car designed and built by Czech car manufacturer Praga Racing. Inspired by endurance prototype race cars, the R1 is a full-carbon track car designed around a composite monocoque and competed in the Supercar Challenge series, a series of endurance and semi endurance events held worldwide. Massarutto posted the above work in progress images showing off the fine detail Kunos are developing in order to bring this unique car to Assetto Corsa. Not a lot of information is known about how many variants of the car will be coming to AC as Praga produce both the R1 and its bigger, more powerful, brothers the R1R and R4S, or indeed when players might expect the new car to be available in game.
