Maserati Tipo 61 "Birdcage" 1.0 Limited

Maserati Tipo 61 "Birdcage" 1959

    Little gift for the community.
    All scratch built with some blueprints ( really wrong ) and a lot of different photos as reference.
    Every one of the 16 cars built is slightly different, so take it as a "standard". Interior is modelled using a single photo as a reference, so something can be little wrong this time.

    Correct power and torque, correct suspensions ( double wishbone at front and de Dion axle, with transverse leaf spring at back )

    Sound modelled using videos and some editing, not perfect but a lot of rOOooAAar.

    Skins came in 4k, but, for people with low-end pcs, there is a folder called "LO_RES_skins" with 2k textures, just rename it to "skins" and voilĂ !

    The folder structure is a bit different, there are some textures for driver model too, for cool new driver's suit and helmet colours.

    THANKS
    As usual, big thanks to @luathas for some fine details, like fantastic tyre mapping, engraved spinners and some tweaks in INIs.
    And big thanks to @Andy-R for the majority of cool historic skins.

    LIMITED VERSION
    Lods still WIP, searching for real audio.

    Had so much fun at VIR raceway very difficult but super rewarding.

    Many spins but fun to see how you have to play with the throttle to get out of a corner.

    I tried it this morning, It's an amazing stuff for sure !
    This car deserves an "organic" audio onboard, the synthetic sound can decrease the pleasure.
    As I'm not able to do a single thing and also because I always got a crush for old racing cars, 5 stars is a little gift for sharing with us your time and your talent ! ;-)
    Thanks a lot !

    I've been hoping for this car. Thanks.
    Don't work so hard that you break your mouse. Get a Logitech. Those last.

    VIsually stunning, the sound transition from idle to mid-high range is too unnatural, "computer-ish"... Too obvious change of pitch bend of one of samples i guess.
    Driving is a bit disappointing too. I have no problem with oversteer and weight transfer behaviour, but this one feels a bit like hovercraft, sadly.
