Kunos Simulazioni currently development a highly anticipated game Assetto Corsa, and previous developers of games such as netKar Pro and Ferrari Virtual Academy have today announced yet another exciting licensing deal for Assetto Corsa.
The latest licensing deal for the game is with BMW. The team mentions that this was one of the first licenses they tried to obtain due to the cars having exemplary balance and handling. Some of the cars we can expect to see in the game include, the BMW 1 Series M Coupe.
Kunos Simulazioni development team commented:
“Kunos Simulazioni is proud to introduce the first model of the BMW collection for Assetto Corsa, the BMW 1 Series M Coupé, one of the most highly rated of BMW’s recent production cars: The traditional straight six cylinder engine, is enhanced by two turbocompressors and outputs 340 bhp, with 450Nm of torque that remains constant from 1500rpm up to 4500rpm. Together with a small, lightweight and
agile body propped up by big 19 inches wheels and fat tyres, delivers outstanding performance. With just 4.9 seconds 0-100km/h time, and an electronically limited top speed of 250km/h, this car is no slouch. Most importantly, the combination of all of the above, results in an extremely fun car to drive, whether you are seeking the best lap-time or just trying to take every single turn sideways.
