old build thread on the official forum (CLICK)
This is a one-off car build by Jürgen Alzen Motorsport for the VLN championship on the Nürburgring Nordschleife. It ran during glorious times full of custom build cars, alongside old DTM and spec-series machinery, before showroom GT3 class cars took over. Speedwise this car is very ...different. Be prepared for more power, more weight, less aero, less electronics, not even a sequential gearbox. Enjoy GT3 speed with a manual shifter.

The mod includes two versions of the car, a ~740 PS, RWD only version designed after the first iterations of the car running in 2003, and the ~600 PS AWD version that ran in 2005, the car's final year.

Physics of the cars were created with the official team's permission and (a little bit of) their data, and optimised based on its real life lap times around the 'Ring.

Both versions of the car include a number of skins each, some inspired by real race cars, some totally fictional, plus templates are included. Sound is custom.


This mod is not related to that old VLN 2005 mod for RFactor. Model, physics and sound are made from scratch.

Special thanks to:

Jürgen Alzen and his team for real data and permission

Physics: myself & numerous clever folks you find on Discord, some of Dauntless' work is also left in it

Soundbank development: users Fonsecker, yepp (and his flute), aphigod (forgot for what :p), PheNom107th (Fmod effects), NeverKrash (turbo sounds) and whoever did the sounds for the MS Flightsim 98 :)

Skins: biggybel, Yurisminator, Brownninja97

Testing: Brownninja97, nfsw55

Driver position: Patrik Marek

Recaro Racing Seat: Neubi of Blendswap (http://www.blendswap.com/blends/view/48334)

All the rest made by me, user AccAkut of (http://www.assettocorsa.net/forum/index.php?members/accakut.236/) and (https://www.lfs.net/forum/thread/67189)

If you like my cars you can buy me a beer (or finance a replacement for my 8 year old CPU..)

This car is a beast! I've only spent a few minutes with it last night doing burn outs and trying a few corners. Does it have TC? I didn't have time to check.

This requires a feather like touch on the accelorator I guess.

Great fun. Must try on a proper race with all the grid made up of this car.
Bloody Awesome!!!
Wahouu
Wow man this is a fantastic build.
top stuff, this car is madness you have to use your brain when driving especially around longford top speed of 309km.

Glaube sein Bruder Jürgen ist da leicht anderer Meinung :D
Wonderfull work! Thanks
Awesome. I didn't like the early versions at all. Great to see so much improvment. The sounds and the Physics are amazing. Only thing i got a little problem with is the FFB. It starts to clip at some point. The strenght is good in most situations. Only driven the RWD version yet.
Only have played with the RWD : what a beast !
Suprisingly this is the only car I can drive without crashing ... The FFB is so close to what I can feel in a real car, wish the other cars in AC was that good to communicate thru the steering wheel.

Maybe this is the result of the new Multilink rear suspension... I think so far this is the first and only mod using this suspension type.
Great work, got better and better with every update. All your other cars also made a massive improvement. You get better and better, be proud of your work, its damn good.
What a great update to an already great car! It is perfect for those sessions when you just want to scare yourself :D It is pure joy to drive this with no TC, no ABS and a manual box. Superb physics and a wonderful set of sounds (especially the transmission whine!). Excellent car, and thanks for all your hard work :)
Great update for a fun and unique car.
Thank you!
Let's try it out! Thanks!
Wow!!! Caught up with this mod, watching RaceDepartment YouTube. It really is special. Love the SXF. Thank you for sharing.
Damn this is a beast! Hard as heck to drive but loads of fun! Thank you :) - https://youtu.be/cYk-MNVOGJM
Very nice update, thank you, like fine wine this great addition to AC is aging well and gets better. A beast to drive.
Very good job... but the FFB
Thanks to share

What the FFB? Please elaborate in the Support thread
Would love to see this puppy make it to RF2.
This was a real hand full in GTR2
Sweet and thank you
!
The interior windshield where the banner is has some very distracting misplaced reflections
The car suffers from a terrible FFB. The tire model isn't that good as well, I would prefer the 90's Slicks seen on the McLaren F1 GTR.

Why would I put 90s slicks on a car from 2005?
No good 3D model. Less polygons. Not recommendable at this time. Hope there will be an further update with big improvements
Somehow managed to miss this the first time round (I never knew it had even been released! :O)

Good fun though - only had time for a quick burst in the RWD one, but its a good laugh - really enjoy the sound of that turbo!

Model isn't quite on the level of your upcoming Audi - but is more than sufficient.

Hoping to get the time to really give all variants a go, but first impressions are great!

yeah this was my learner piece, looking at the raw mesh hurts my eyes now :D But physics are still really great I think, done totally from scratch by Dauntless(80%) and me (20%). Haven't really got to test it against the Kunos Porsche cars, and their methods of emulating Multilink suspension. Would be cool if anyone could give me feedback on this in the Support thread
Thanks for update. This is my favorite AC mod!
