Assetto Corsa Competizione | Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evo II Confirmed for Challengers Pack DLC

Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evo II Coming to ACC.jpg
Kunos Simulazioni has revealed the second car that will be included in the upcoming Challengers Pack DLC for Assetto Corsa Competizione: the Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evo II.

Less than 10 days remain until we'll get our hands on the Challengers Pack DLC for Assetto Corsa Competizione, and Kunos has now confirmed the second car that will be included in the pack.

Last week we learned that the BMW M2 CS Racing would be added to the sim, and this latest news confirms that Audi's newest GT race car will join the GT3 roster for ACC.

Similar to Evo versions of other cars in ACC such as the Ferrari 488 and Lamborghini Huracan, the updated Audi doesn't represent a drastic change from the outgoing (Evo) version. The LMS Evo II offers an improved rear wing and front air intake, plus improved suspension.

Under the hood, its 5.2 litre V10 engine is pumping out 585 horsepower, but the Evo II's torque curve has been tweaked. Fans of the existing Audi and Lamborghini models should have no trouble adjusting to driving the new car, but can likely expect a slightly improved driving experience in the car.

Two more announcements are expected from Kunos in the coming days, which should confirm the Ferrari 488 Challenge and Porsche 992 Cup cars' presence in the Challengers Pack DLC.

Yessssss. Looking forward to the Evo2. Wasn't expecting Kunos to include the car to be honest and was pleasantly surprised by Marco Massaruttos announcement.
Hopefully a bit more competitive as the Evo, which I find difficult to drive fast. You have to be very precise in your inputs, the car is far less forgiving as some of the other GT3s in ACC. Lot of folks moved away from the R8 for a reason. Still love the looks, sounds and overall handling though. Evo2...bring it on!
 
It's basically the same car... Sadly, ACC is becoming quickly boring with the limited cars and track choice.
I don't feel bored by the sim, but I do like the prospect of the SRO tracks from Asia and North America to possibly be modeled for the software. To my habits there is always a challenge to face because there is no way that I can master every track. However, I do get your point that the cars are limited, but the scope of the mission statement of this sim has always been the singular series. I think they did a damn good job so far in updates and dlc. At times a specialty makes more sense to me more than a sim which tries to do too much.
 
Isn’t the latest NSX coming?
Unfortunately there is none on the entry list for the GTWC Europe this season. Unless a team decides to sneak one into the Spa 24H, or Honda makes an eSports deal it's not likely going to be in the game. My source: YT/watch?v=IpyRhApmC94
 
Still hope for new tracks. Having kunos to make more tracks feel like squeezing blood out of stone.

Same for Supra and mustang gt4
I mean, it's pretty obvious what they're doing with their release schedules.

GTWC Europe--get the European tracks.

ICGT--get ICGT tracks

British GT--got British tracks.

Got a tease for COTA a month ago, take a wild guess what all we'll get along with it. Can't be helped that this all had to happen during COVID lockdowns. Fair criticism on the GT4s, but not so much on the circuits.
