An Italian pro driver posted this, shared via AC FB page:

Today, thanks to the staff of Assetto Corsa and Luca Casarotto, I had the opportunity to test their simulator.
I'd like to state that I'm not paid by Kunos Simulazione, except for the coffee, and indeed I'd like to thank them for their commitment and dedication. I'm looking forward to buy a copy immediately.

The impression, never had with other simulators, is the feeling of the car, the feel of the tyres / adhesion and especially not having to do "forced" trajectories where the grip is higher. I started at Imola, professional bias, with the 458 gt2, the car with which I won the 6h Vallelunga in real life.
In terms of graphics the combination of track/car give a staggering result, but I do not give that much importance to the beauty. I go out of the pits on cold tires and forcing immediately I can feel that the car is not ready .. taking it easy for 2-3 laps and apart than overshooting the braking point a couple of times, I never go in spin. It's not me that is good but the fact that I finally feel so gradually the loss of grip on the gas. Counter steering gives an obvious waste of laptime, but also big satisfaction for having controlled oversteer in third and fourth gear.
I could never drive like this right out of the box with any simulator, 5-6 consecutive laps without crashing heavily somewhere. Sorry in advance for the long post, I will add details if anyone is interested.

Trying the 599xxEvo, that I've really driven, the admiration for Assetto Corsa increases. From the sound to the violence of the acceleration, to the active rear wing, stunning in the replays... and then a bit of vintage Lotus Senna (98T) where you are brainwashed... manual gearbox, locking the wheels, turbo lag... thank god for modern electronics! Beautiful and cursed at the same time.

Changing to the road car BMW M3 where Aris gave me a little lesson on drifting... you can appreciate the drive-ability and the sincerity of the steering wheel even more.. Watching the replay at Magione of car drifting, let you speechless, but not with me driving eh!!

I have one word to describe Assetto Corsa. SENSATIONAL CORSA! I'd like to thank all the guys at Assetto Corsa for the opportunity. Last thing, I wanted to write what I really think based on my real life experience, so it should be taken as a free personal thinking that you might agree or not! Ciao!

Just bought for 60,- euros a year of Xbox Live Gold, and bought that Coupe GT for 75,- euros. Don't think my wife would let me buy this game also! Maybe next year.

They need to do something about the lights, they look horrible when on. Even the tail lights of the E30 look dreadful.

in that picture brake lights are on also i messed with the ligning options :D im sure many things will be improved when full release is finished. also i dont really care about lights. all i see is inside of the car.

you definitely have to try it out, man. its an epic sim

Watch on youtube.com


i can't drift like that yet and i drive E30 M3 :D all cars feel different, weight, power, grip. its much more complicated than for example in LFS, mostly because of different FFB, you can feel much more thru the wheel in AC, than you can in LFS

Cool video C! Man it looks really tough to handle the car. It looks like it understeers like crazy, not really a BMW characteristic. And the brakes look pretty snappy, can you dose it easy?

Sound is good, love the rattle and popping sound when lifting gas. Just like in real life. Only miss that deep intake sound this car makes in real life:

One of the best sounding engines ever.
