    Not really mine, some Italian speaker had noticed it on AC forum "social media" thread. But thought I'd pass it along. There's the video, for those who understand the language.

    At 13:20 or so the Alfieri is shown for quite some time, interior too. Actually seems to have footage of all of the bonus cars, if I'm not mistaken. Not very great quality of course.

    During the Steam Sales that ended Monday, I voted Assetto Corsa by Kunos Simulazioni the "Labour Of Love" Award, for the Four Years of development, and hard work the whole team at Kunos Simulazioni have put into developing Assetto Corsa, from the very first One Car on One Track, to what we have today in Assetto Corsa.
    Thank you to the complete Team, the Modders, and the community, that has made Assetto Corsa what it is today......Thank You all.

    Will be nice to have an official laser scanned Laguna. Running a Laguna mod now off here though which is actually very well done. It is pretty darn close to iRacing's Laguna.

    I really, really, really, really, really wish someone would do a version of Thunderhill though. Official, mod, whatever, I'll take it.

    Still no aerial lidar for it, so a conversion of the one from original rFactor is about your only hope.

    I don't know if this will be possible from the side of the devs, but this Alfa reminded me that I definitely WANT a Lancia Stratos in this game. Either road legal or rally -or both :D- but I want it. It has been one of my dream car for years and I want to experience it in a more serious way.

    Laguna Seca is a fun little track, it'll be interesting to compare with the iRacing version. Hopefully adding some US content will help spread Assetto Corsa's appeal there a bit.

    About this I am really curious myself. I remember looking at the user stats for Assetto Corsa (https://steamdb.info/app/244210/graphs/) during Thanksgiving and there was a definite increase of users with peak at 3000+ concurrent players, a number that AC usually does on weekends. As I am a European and we do not have Thanksgiving here, that makes me think the AC user base from USA must be at least decent, even though AC doesn't do NASCAR or Indycar.

    Is the street version similar enough to the 33/2 that a re-skinned Stradale might serve as a racer too?

    The racer had tabs at the front to reduce aero lift and the engine would likely have been more powerful in some way and, the obvious difference, race tires. Even in that period, race rubber was substantially better than street rubber.

    More specifics on the differences between Stradale and racecar:

    The two prototypes are the only ones to have dual headlight arrangement. This was redesigned be Scaglione on the following production cars due to regulations on minimum headlight distance from the ground.

    The engine used four chain-driven camshafts to operate the valve train and had a rev-limit of 10,000 rpm. The engine produced 230 hp (172 kW) at 8,800 rpm in road trim and 270 bhp (201 kW) in race trim. The engine valves are operated via chain-driven double-overhead cams and has a 10.5:1 compression ratio. Because every Stradale is hand built and unique the power levels can vary by car, used rpms etc., for example the first production Stradale (No. 750.33.101) has factory datasheet that claims 243 hp (181 kW) at 9,400 rpm with a "street" exhaust and 254 hp (189 kW) with open exhaust.

    Stradale has 10 cm longer wheelbase than the race cars.
    ***
    In 1968 the Stradale was the fastest commercially available car in the standing kilometer with time of 24.0 seconds

    Aristotelis about the Alfieri on official forums:

    "Hi guys, thanks for watching our live videos from Monza Rally Show, sorry for being only in Italian for this event.

    Just to let you know a bit more about the Maserati Alfieri, because in the video I was about to do a longer talk about it, but somehow we've managed to say practically nothing and obviously confused you, sorry again.

    So I started developing the car with plans from the future maserati alfieri. So AWD, biturbo engine and waiting to hear from Maserati if it was going to be electric, hybrid or whatever... but in the middle of development, Maserati asked us to work on the actual concept car as presented to the public.
    So the Alfieri you're getting is the actual real concept with the GranTurismo big V8 engine and RWD (yee!) It's lighter and shorter than the GranTurismo so more agile too. It also has the amazing cockpit which works like some kind of top class handcrafted sportswatch, really cool.
    And that's it, cheers!"

    ...Laguna Seca and the 33 stradale are great addition ...the other things have no interest for me (only my opinion, glad that people are happy) ...maybe this "sim" now deserves some updates on physics , sounds, tyre model and graphics (and maybe they should re-work some car that are really "weird") ...and maybe I'm dreaming...
