RaceDepartment present our first Assetto Corsa modding roundup of 2017 and this one is all about the cars! It's been a while since we last did a roundup feature (December 2016 to be precise) so we thought it high time we take a look at the great and the good released for Assetto Corsa since the beginning of the year. We have been very fortunate with the number of quality mods released as of late, so in order to give the very best a fair shout I'm going to do something a little different this time, and split this feature into two separate articles. One for the cars and the second to focus on the tracks. As mentioned above, in this first part of our two part modding feature we will be taking a look at some of the best community created car content released for Assetto Corsa since last December. We'll let you know where you download it, what it includes and share an opinion or two to help you make a download decision. I would again like to take this opportunity to remind you that in no way do RaceDepartment endorse these mods or take any responsibility whatsoever for any issues caused by downloading these files. The idea behind the articles is rather simple, to help throw light on some of the wonderful community content created for our favourite racing simulators. If you feel we have missed out some "must have" content, or want to draw my attention to a project you are working on, please feel free to drop me a PM or leave a message in the comments section below…. KRB Audi S1 Silhouette V1.0 Title: Assetto Corsa Category: Cars / Hillclimb Download Link - HERE Latest Release: 19/3/2017 Credits: See download link Built by @AccAkut for Assetto Corsa, the ridiculously powered Audi is something a little bit different from the usual third party created cars you will find in the downloads section. Created to a very high standard in both the 3D model and physics realisation, this hillclimb special is a very entertaining driving experience. Audi Sport TT Cup V1.0 Title: Assetto Corsa Category: Cars / Single Make Trophy Download Link - HERE Latest Release: 13/3/2017 Credits: See download link @Shaun Clarke returns with next modding project, taking development of the Audi Sport TT Cup car from 2015 and returning it back to working condition in Assetto Corsa. With new sounds and many physics improvements, the TT Cup is already looking like one of AC's better mods and will no doubt improve yet further in time. A must have for tin top fans. Ginetta G55 V6.0 Title: Assetto Corsa Category: Cars / Single Make Trophy Download Link - HERE Latest Release: 12/3/2017 Credits: See download link Another @Shaun Clarke project, this time bringing back to life the beautiful Ginetta G55 and also adding the GT4 Supercup variant to the car. With considerable updates and amendments, the G55 mod offers a remarkably realistic driving experience and is a superb addition to the Assetto Corsa car list. Great 3D model, enjoyable physics and impressive sounds, the Ginetta's are both fantastic cars and worth anyone's time to download. Test Plane V1.0 Title: Assetto Corsa Category: Plane / errr, flight? Download Link - HERE Latest Release: 10/3/2017 Credits: See download link It's a plane, in Assetto Corsa! A. Plane. Flying. Plane. Yup, you heard it right, it's something that goes in the sky rather than races on the track, how impressive is that?!?! Built from scratch as a physics experiment by @the_meco, the test plane is a fully working flying machine for Assetto Corsa. Well worth a download just for the novelty experience of it all, this mod is an impressive achievement and perfectly allows you to enjoy from the air the detail Kunos have put into the tracks and surrounding environment. IER Car Pack #1 - USCC Mod 1.1 Title: Assetto Corsa Category: Cars / GT Download Link - HERE Latest Release: 6/3/2017 Credits: See download link This one has been around for a while and at the time promised to be a very big deal indeed, however recent AC updates broke the mod and things slowed down from a development perspective. Built from scratch by IER, the latest update repairs the sound for both the Daytona Prototype and Oreca FLM09 as well as some physics improvements, returning the mod back to it's rightful place as one of the best must have GT mods in the sim. Toyota Corolla/Altis SP3 v05.2 Title: Assetto Corsa Category: Cars / Touring Car Download Link - HERE Latest Release: 30/1/2017 Credits: See download link @Patrik Marek makes very special mod cars, and it looks like the Altis is fast becoming another one of those special projects. Although still in "heavy WIP" status, the driving experience is already outstanding and the usual Marek attention to detail in the 3D model is already evident. One to keep a very close eye on as development continues. Excellent stuff. Audi R8 LMS 2015 by AGU Modding V0.8.1 Title: Assetto Corsa Category: Cars / GT Download Link - HERE Latest Release: 17/1/2017 Credits: See download link Made famous as the first ever mod car introduced to Project CARS, the R8 LMS has now come to Assetto Corsa and is a great addition to the sim. 3D model looks incredible, the physics are of a very high quality and the FFB simply "works" right out of the box. This is a very worthwhile download and one of the best GT3 spec machines available in AC at present. Caterham Seven 620R V0.5 Title: Assetto Corsa Category: Cars / Track Car Download Link - HERE Latest Release: 8/1/2017 Credits: See download link Everybody loves a Caterham and the 620R from @Rift Racer is no exception. Developed using the base Caterham Academy mod and with several advancements made over the original release, the "new" 620R is a standalone mod and will not overwrite the original Academy car. Incredible fun and one of the better vehicles in AC. Renault R24 beta 0.4 Title: Assetto Corsa Category: Cars / Formula One Download Link - HERE Latest Release: 8/3/2017 Credits: See download link A first mod release from @Cyneo, the early build of the Renault R24 from 2004 is already showing some promise and potential. More development is needed and indeed is in the works, however for a first effort the car is already looking rather impressive and should be a solid release once finished. Very well done and keep up the good work!
