    Information regarding release dates and development progress have not yet been made available by the Swedish studio, however stay tuned to RaceDepartment as we bring you all the news on this car and more as it develops!

    Good to see another new generation GT3 is joining the field. Maybe they'll package all of the new cars together in a pack along with the new LMS Ultra 2016 that must be coming too. I'm looking forward to driving it! :p

    Nice to see a modern GT3 model make it into R3E. Wasn't too sure if this would happen as Assetto Corsa seems to have all the juicy licenses.

    The GT3 cars in R3E are a nice mix. I would love to see the 458 or 488 as well and maybe the GT3 Lambo as well. As mentioned above though I think AC have the exclusive rights to the Lamborghini cars.

    ...and yes the GT3 XK Jag would be nice as well, but I won't hold my breath on that one :p

    Loving the Callaway Corvette BTW @Azure Flare :thumbsup: (assuming it's still called that!:))

    Considering how prominent the dash is in the AMG GT3 I don't have high hopes for this car, the McLaren is already atrocious with it's generic display.

    Please do.:rolleyes: Save some cash to spend on solid game improvements.
    Are you telling us all that a working flag system is less important than more paid DLC? A flag system has been the cornerstone of every real PC sim since Indycar Racing from Papyrus. It's an absolute pre-requisite for a sim. Do you not agree?
    And while you are here, maybe you can tighten the cut rules so that any one who ever gets 4 wheels over the solid white lines gets penalised. :whistling:

    He's telling you that the people that would be working on that are not the same people as the ones working on new cars.

    You knows there is different people with different skill sets right. Programmers dont model cars and modelers dont code flag systems. Be happy raceroom gets nice content updates, there is plenty of titles that get neither features nor content.

    A flag system is of course important, and is on our to-do list already, like many other things.

    But it wont get done quicker if we stop licensing new cars.

    Like wise nielsen......:rolleyes: Look Mathias, I know you hate me (you said so in that nasty private message you sent to me) but can we agree to stop this nastiness. You didn't have to jump on another of my posts again and cause trouble. So how about we agree to ignore each other like adults?
    OK?:thumbsup:

    Always welcome new GT3's :notworthy: :thumbsup:
    Quick question though, how long does it usually take to produce then release a new car? I only ask as it says " in the coming weeks or months".
    Looking at S3S forums the Audi TT RS VLN was announced Jan 2016 and still not released, BMW M235i Feb 2016, 650S March 2016 etc.
    Would you say about 6 months to turnout a car?

    @Georg Ortner If everyone keeps tag-in you I will too (sorry if it's to bothersome) I know I'm dreaming but any Ferrari? Or a bop on the P4-5,as that's way slower than others. Cheers

    @PaulH definitely less than 6 months, but sometimes content gets put in the freezer for some time, because other things take priority. The TT RS VLN should be published fairly soon though :)

    @Caramidaru Andrei Bogdan The P4/5 is not as slow as you may think.
    Watch Julian Kunze drving it around Nordschleife in 7:53.3


    Nothing i can share with you regarding Ferrari at this moment.
