Welcome to the version 3.0 of the RS500 Pack !

RS500 pack picture.jpg

This mod enters in a new era as we’ve reworked all cars to make them more closer to the real thing.

Because AC is more than ever a great sim in 2020 (with CM, Shader light Patch and SOL), we want to update this mod to another level.

I work with another modder, Akina Style, to create a new physic with more real datas, improve the 3D model created by ChongMcBong and more…

All cars have Kunos sounds, if you are a sound modder and be able to recreate the original sound, it would be great to work with you.

Special thanks to shadow118 for his work on the rally version skins and to Dirk Steffen for his precious help to fix some issues.

Important note : delete the 2.7 version for a clean install, you can install each car separately.

Great cars, so well made overall and nice to drive. Thanks a lot !

Excellent! Thanks!
The homologation is playful to say the least... in a good way. It's a shame that the BTCC version is left-hand drive though
Quality!
AMAZING mod sir! I'm really looking forward to racing it against other DTM cars in the game.
For me the DTM version is 2-4 seconds faster per lap than the mercedes and the bmw from kunos

Group A BTCC is just a pleasure to drive. Thanks a lot for your great work.
Great work, however in the Road Version you can see driver's head while driving from the interior view,
Thx for updating this Legendary car again
GRACIAS
Very nice thanks
Cool!
One of the mods that have been in AC for years. Worth the update to latest AC standards. Very engaging to drive, I have enough information from my wheel to understand how the car behaves. Especially the rally car is a joy!
