Reiza Studios have revealed further preview images from the upcoming Puma P052, GTB & GTE models coming to Automobilista.


Puma Automóveis will join Automobilista in the very near future, expanding the impressive collection of cars yet further and bringing another new Brazilian manufacturer to a game that continues to impress several years after initial release.

Previewed in the latest image release is the P052, GTB & GTE models, a mix of old and new machinery from this little known brand, and cars that are sure to provide an exciting outlet for fans to continue to enjoy what is arguably one of the best racing simulations available at present.

All three are very fun to drive in their own unique ways...if you like cars that don't all feel and perform the same :)
Snap looks like I'll have to reinstall the beta. Thought it had served its purpose after the update, but looks like I'll be increasing my play time on that again

This is literally the ONLY racing game that I bother with that doesn't have VR. Its a truly incredible piece of work that keeps me coming back for more, fingers crossed their next title is as moddable as SCE/AMS. Fantastic Devs as well, keep up the great work.

Really looking forward for the GTB and the GTE as I saw both live here in the Copa Classic RS, and the GTE sound is specially brutal. Sadly they only make occasional appearances in the south of Brazil, so having them virtually will be a good deal.

I have to say that I discovered some "obscure" tracks (for Europeans) in this game, and I'm very happy with it :)

I love ams, I really do. But the collision physics are horrible. It's as if cars bounce off each other as opposed to actually colliding.

Providing original and unique content is the good way to develop a solid racing title. AMS topics are the only ones where you don't find any angry or hate posts, even if there is no VR. Only support and love. Other sim developers should learn a lesson instead of copying each other...

Reinstalling Beta now!

Benefit of GSC/AMS? Brazilians are amazed when you rattle off "Cascavel.Curitba.Taruma..."!

These are available to drive in the Beta if people with the season pass wish to check them out. :)

Loving the cockpit view and the sounds.

I'm curious though: Watching this in 1080p60, the cockpit view shows a very lively and somewhat bumpy ride, yet the TV-cam view on the upper left shows the 3D model driving along with no visible play and motion in the suspension? I would expect the car body to look a lot more "alive" given the movements in the cockpit view?

Am I missing something? Why the difference? The cockpit view feels very immersive, but the TV-cam feels rather sterile? Is it just me or...?

A mix of few things:
first off, the replay mechanics in ISImotor is a bit simplified than mechanics of actual driving, but i think it's not exacly the case here.
The road mesh has some actual 3d noise, microbumps and variations, which are still noticeable from TV cams but due their subtleties they're more noticeable from the cockpit. And very much noticeable when driving.
