    AMS Touring Car Classics DLC 6.jpg
    Check out these new preview images from the upcoming Touring Car Classics DLC coming soon to Automobilista...

    Previewed quite a while ago now as part of a 'development roadmap' post, Reiza Studios have now released a batch of new preview images from the next DLC offering for their Automobilista racing simulation for PC, showing off images of three historic pieces of touring car content in the form of the Fusca, Gol, Passat and Uno, all cars that took part in the heart of Brazilian motorsport back in the 1980's and early 1990's.

    The preview images released so far suggest a release to the public build of the game might not be too far away, however at this stage no exact dates have been confirmed.

    Check out the preview images for yourself below:

    Automobilista feels fantastic. This dlc isn't quite grabbing me yet but it may end up being great. Reiza has also announced one last dlc for this title that will be focused on one car brand... no hints at which one yet but hopefully it will also be revealed soon.

    Tried the Bug and Uno so far - both really well done! On the right track/layout, these will make for some great club and/or "instructional" style racing events.

    The Bug I thought was a lot of fun right off the bat - feels like a little race car.

    The Uno...for me, at least, takes some patience. For better or worse, the FWD sensation is well done and your lines and general technique have to be modified accordingly. Not my personal cup of tea, but in the hands of a driver with more patience/talent than me (low bar to clear, BTW), I think the little rascal flies.

    On a side note, I've been on a bit of a R3E/AC kick. Between that and evaluating PC2, I've neglected my trusty/beloved AMS a bit until these TC classics hit beta. At the risk of sounding like Reiza's unpaid marketing arm, I can't believe how the sim has just continued to refine. It's rare that I see something splashy come through in the release notes, but I suppose it's just a preponderance of little tweaks here and there that do the trick in the long run. It keeps getting better - in both looks and FFB (I'm quite certain that, for my tastes, the FFB is best on the market right now).

    I have to wonder where the sim would be if Reiza had a magic wand to make some more mainstream licensed content appear (or perhaps a big flashy enhancement like weather...which I do realize is not gonna happen, just speaking hypothetically here). Seems like AMS has a hard time shaking the "rF 1.5" impression. While I do understand where that comes from, when I look at the package in totality, it feels a lot more like "rF 3" if you catch my drift.

    Absolutely loved the Beetle Race mod for rFactor so this DLC is exactly what I wanted. I think both classic and modern day touring cars need more love.

    Good thing I've got the DLC pass already :)

    The feeling of these cars , the sound, the physics, heel and toe whith both cars at nords is fantastic.
    How much passion demonstrated by the Reiza guys in each of his works, only who love too much something, make this kind of jewels.

    Looks great and will be looking forward to it :thumbsup:... but right now I am waiting for the "fix" ..yes they gave us a work around fix, but sadly this just removed the offending part ..DynoHud" ...one really does need some telemetry info, hence a very important part of the game is missing imo ...we will shortly be going into our 3rd week with this issue still not fixed :thumbsdown:

    And, for who is indecisive about the DLC, there's a big discount going on right now for the season pass, game or game and season pass bundle. Check Reiza's facebook page.

    Cars look very well done tho not really my cup of tea, curious to see if the sound fix (crackling audio) thats being worked on will come in this update as well?
