rFactor 2: 2019 Aston Martin Vantage GT3 Final GT Challengers Car

rF2 GT3 Challengers Pack.jpg

Studio 397 have dropped the news that the fifth and final GT3 car coming to the GT3 Challengers DLC will be... the 2019 Aston Martin Vantage GT3!


Another new licence to the rapidly expanding rFactor 2 racing simulation, confirmation of the Aston Martin Vantage GT3 is also another sim racing exclusive - with Studio 397 having once again secured bragging rights as the first racing simulation to deploy a brand new spec GT3 car to the genre - joining the recently announced McLaren 720s revealed earlier this week.

In other rather happy news, Studio 397 have also confirmed the GT3 Challengers pack will be released tomorrow! Sadly, due to the tight timeframe constraints of licencing and the approvals process, the Aston Martin will not be made available immediately alongside the Porsche 911 GT3 R, BMW M6 GT3, Audi R8 LMS GT3 and McLaren 720s GT3 - players will have to wait just a little bit longer to find out how the new Aston drives (and looks!) in sim, until final approvals have been released by the manufacturer.

That aside, the imminent release of this upcoming and rather exciting looking new DLC for rFactor 2 should give us all a rather solid reason to avoid having to socialise with family over the Christmas period - that alone being worth the price of the new pack!

Tight timeframe constraints? Someone at Aston simply went off to early Christmas break and left studio 397 hanging. It's fine we'll wait.

I'm a bit sour but for all the right reasons. In my mind I assumed S397 were going to pull an ISI "Well, we showed you a couple GT3's, now modders....fill in the rest"

Had I known this was coming, I'd never have bought ACC. This is a fantastic pack and I can't wait to buy it. Now when people ask me what I got for Christmas, I can tell them I got a giant boner.

Can't wait to drive em!!

It would've been so much better if we were getting the 2019 Porsche instead of the old one. But I'm still happy.

So, are you saying 20 years ago you didn't play games because the UI looked horrible?

Or, did you just get on with the show and enjoyed the game?

Asking for a friend. :rolleyes:

(Oh, and they've already mentioned that the updated UI is coming by Q1 2019 in previous posts)

This is really getting annoying. I mean the UI question (where is it and when it's going to be released) poppin' up all the time in every rF2 thread. I'm racing in official rf2 endurance league and I need 3 or 5 (enable spectate mode) clicks to enter the server. I don't unerstand what seems to be the complicated, "not user friendly", part of current UI?
If I check into tuning menu, our team Porsche for sure doesn't look 20 years old, neither does the garage:

It's maybe worth mentioning that there won't be any painting templates available for the new cars until January. Just in case anyone is looking for them after they install the dlc.

We are not all the stereotypical basement dwelling unsociable sim racers..Some of us enjoy Christmas with friends & family.:)

Rfactor does look better although I will probably hold off purchasing until the UI is launched.

Have a good Christmas & New Year Paul.You do a great job here & appreciate your efforts.
