BMW M4 GT3 Coming to Assetto Corsa Competizione

An update due to be released this week for Assetto Corsa Competizione on PC will include the BMW M4 GT3.

There’s a common sentiment that time heals all wounds. Apparently, it can make cars look better too. The BMW M4 GT3’s styling, particularly in the front, was widely criticized when the car was first showcased. But some teaser images of the virtual version coming later this week to ACC are looking great.

The car announcement was part of the second wave of teasers for the upcoming Competizione update, which will include the M4 as free DLC, an update to the Unreal Engine, DLSS and FSR support, and physics and tire model update.

This is all we can share for now, but check back with RD later this week, as we’ll be covering the update in greater detail closer to the public release date.

Nice, hopefully hitting a high kerb will stop feeling like hitting a big ass rock! Also wish tyres were not as pressure sensitive as they are, that is not realistic at all.

To me the front still looks like two droids being angry at the grille :D
 
Well when this car look ugly as hell to you....I think nobody can help you. I agree tastes are different but when I dont like a car I would never in a thousand years hate about it on the internet;) This car is so much in your head....thats why you hating. Be honest to yourself;)
Yeah for me it`s just too much exaggerated. Do not hate BMW or something, but neither be a fan. Why must every car today look like a space warship? Just not my thing. That`s it.

My taste is no reason to offend me :thumbsdown: ;)

Okey on this case I totally agree with you. All the GT3 Racecars nowadays are too big and wide and the same goes for the M4 GT3;) look at the 911 GT3 R for example....its a freaking Spaceship nowadays while a few years back it was a lot more decent and IMO more beautiful.
I'm sorry if I offended you, I meant it more like a joke;)
 
I'm still a little confused with DLSS. I get that it renders resolutions like 4K to a lower res and then upscales, thus the performance gains...but will this improve FPS on a system running triple 1080p monitors? Will it render it at triple 720p or 900p and upscale, or does this only work on the higher HD resolutions?

It works in percentages of native resolution, the best Quality preset is 66%. So it will be 66% of 1080p. The lower native resolution the less pixels it has to start with thus affecting final quality, reason it works better on high res monitors.
 
Your profil name shouldnt be BadWheels......more like BadMood;) IMO this car looks brutal and beautiful at the same time. The M6 was great too but the new M4 looks so much better.
Since I own 2 BMW's, I will tell you that it states in the purchase agreements, " At any time if we make a car that resembles a grandma getting out of a bath tub naked, you are allowed to diss it until such time we fire whoever suggested that design to us".
Look it up. :whistling:

Imo, apart from the "nozzles", the m4 gt3 looks super sick!
But these inlets.. No idea how that got pitched successfully.
Maybe BMW wanted to get more attention to them, with something ugly, that can be seen as not that ugly.
Yielding lots of discussions and attention.

No, it isn't in our heads. That is the equivalent of a German Edsel. It's not the first time they dressed up a mule and called it a horse.

DLSS all I can say for me about damn time.

This is better than the car coming that will get boring fast.

Maybe some new tracks next year (paid dlc) would spice the game up at the moment last time I played ACC was 3 months ago.

Waitaminute...the car on the left is suppose to be the ugly one? Hmmm...interesting , not the way I see it (I don't know what it looks like from other angles though)...both look decent to me.
 
The Kidney Bean nostrils are off-putting for many traditionalist Bimmer fans. I think the car looks lethal in it's DTM/Class 1 form(over at rF2) Looking forward to seeing the GT3 variant.
 
I gotta say, I've grown to like big nose over here. Only a few days of waiting, folks.

Now about the Supra GT4...
 
Hi all, we Hope they will release TC cause is a SRO licence too, anyway is great they give us M4 for free, maybe not beauty but most important for me is how It drives, and for sure will be great.
For me most important update will be fixes to destroy those cheaters that kills the game, and is a cáncer on any community, we need tools to find and show how ridiculous are they.
For me ACC has no rivals, and still think is the best game, can't wait to see those updates, and i think the next DLC will be GT2, so Kunos have my money granted when they released it
 
The new BMW grill is growing on me. I've still only seen one of them in the wild. The standard car looks OK. The M version looks good to me. Them little divots over the nostrils make the front look better to me. The GT3 version is a winner.
