The upcoming game from Kunos Simulazioni, Assetto Corsa, is all about intense, realistic, simulation-style racing and what better way to celebrate high-end motorsports than by acquiring a license to include a prototype super sports car?
Kunos sent out word today that the KTM brand super sports car, the X-Bow R, will be a featured vehicle in the upcoming DX11 powered racing title due out later this year. The developers have been hard at work replicating the car for the game and even shared a few comments about the car itself, saying...
With the KTM X-BOW R the product range of the super sports car with the carbon monocoque includes the most powerful version yet developed. The “R” is the result of concentrated further development of this spectacular lightweight sports car. In the rear of the "R" is a 300 h.p 2.0 Liter TFSI engine from Audi with a maximum torque of 400 Nm and this ensures an unbelievable driving experience both on and off the racing circuit, because naturally the KTM X-BOW R is homologated for use on the road.
Earlier in the month Kunos Simulazioni officially announced Assetto Corsa as a next-generation racing title for PC. The game will be running on a brand new proprietary physics engine by Kunos, and will feature many of the latest and most prodigious sports cars, super cars, prototypes and racing machines in a simulator. The game won't be the only simulation racing title on the block, though. Slightly Mad Games and the racing community at large will also have a racing title out around the same time called Project C.A.R.S., so gamers will have plenty of options to choose from when it comes to realistic racing sims on PC this year.
