The dev confirmed today on social media that 1.1 will introduce six new car models and one new track to the simulation from the 2019 Blancpain season. It will also bring major game updates, one of which may be triple-screen support that had currently been next-to impossible in the Unreal game engine.

Impossible, until now:

It was previously announced via an interview that this update would include seven cars, and that seventh is a bonus McLaren Shadow 720s GT3 for use in McLaren’s eSports series.

Here are some shots of Zandvoort:

A full changelog is expected with the release.

Hold. Your. Breath.

Assetto Corsa Competizione v1.1 will land soon on Steam!

This FREE update will bring (for all ACC users, present and future) 6 new astonishing car models, 1 new track and major game updates.

While avoiding spoilers on the complete changelog, we’d like to showcase the new cars in a ramp up to the official release…starting with…

Aston Martin Vantage GT3

The previous Aston Martin Vantage was the public’s favorite, mainly because of the glorious V12 engine (that sound!)

Unfortunately, the car was getting somewhat dated, and performance was suffering compared to the aero-driven competition. The brand-new Aston Martin Vantage has an equally massive V8 bi-turbo engine, with less screaming but a lot more exhaust backfire at every gear change, and power is more than enough to make it up for you. On top of that, a modern chassis with exceptional mechanical grip and balance together with sophisticated aerodynamics.

It proved instantly competitive and capable of fighting for the podium and even bagging a race victory in its maiden season in the GT3 series. Did we mention that it looks absolutely stunning?

Just look at it! #beACC

Thursday morning:

Coming soon to ACC v1.1 – The Audi R8 LMS

The all conquering Audi R8 LMS was an absolute protagonist of the 2018 BLANCPAIN GT SERIES season. It might not have won the championship, but the number of wins, podiums, pole positions, best laps, and sheer presence on the grid, was clear proof of its competitiveness.

Audi probably thought that this wasn’t enough and so for 2019 tried to improve every single aspect of the car, presenting the Audi R8 LMS EVO version. Better aerodynamics, improvements in the suspension, chassis and electronics.

On the other side the organisation probably thought that it had to balance out with the other cars, so extra weight was added by the Balance of Performance. The Audi still managed to be competitive but rumours arose regarding heavy rear end and pointy nose that made drivers uncomfortable.

Are the rumours true? You can be the judge!

This FREE update will bring (for all ACC users, present and future) 6 new astonishing car models, 1 new track and major game updates. Stay tuned for more info…#beACC

Saturday:

Coming soon to ACC v1.1 for FREE!

The Porsche 911 GT3-R was suffering from a lack of competitiveness for a long time. Modern GT3 cars make good use of rear diffusers. Unfortunately that’s where the engine sits in a 911, occupying the space for a deep diffuser, resulting in a deficit of downforce and high drag from the rear wing.

Weight balance of the rear engine Porsche doesn’t help either. But if there’s one thing you can trust Porsche for, it’s that sooner or later it will be competitive again.

The 2019 Porsche 991ii GT3-R is greatly evolved. The engine got moved forward “somehow”, making space for a still small but more efficient diffuser. The front aerodynamics are also much better. The front suspension now consists of a double wishbone instead of the old McPherson strut.

Yes the car is still hard to drive and still has a small operational window, but it can now fight and win! Definitely amongst the surprises of 2019 season.

This FREE update will bring (for all ACC users, present and future) 6 new astonishing car models, 1 new track and major game updates. Stay tuned for more info…#beACC

Sunday:

Coming soon to ACC v1.1 – Zandvoort Circuit.

Located in the Netherlands by the North Sea coast, this 4.307km circuit comes to Assetto Corsa Competizione for FREE as part of our next update!

Take a look at what you can expect and stay tuned for more info and screens… #beACC

Monday:

Coming soon to ACC v1.1 for FREE!

The mighty Lamborghini Huracán GT3 won the BLANCPAIN GT SERIES back in 2017, came close to winning in 2018 and for the 2019 season they decided it was time for a full update.

The new Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO made its appearance in the pre-season tests, featuring better aerodynamics, curing its power on understeer issue, wider operational window, improvements in the suspension geometry and more.

Balance of Performance hit hard on the car, adding occasionally probably the heaviest ballast available. Still, Lamborghini teams always found competitive solutions and eventually won the championship with an impressive performance at the final race in Barcelona by FFF Racing Team. A charging bull!

Tuesday:

The Honda NSX GT3 debut in 2018 with great expectations and a commitment from the manufacturer to provide a competitive car to GT3 series customers. Unfortunately the car was low on power, low on downforce (particularly at the front end) and the BOP was not doing it any favours either.

Enter 2019 and the new Honda NSX GT3 EVO brings plenty of new components and also experience from the IMSA USA series. The new car still maintains some of the old issues, like the rear weight bias caused by the elimination of the front electric engine and batteries of the street model, resulting in similar understeer handling. Nevertheless the car now has power, downforce and grip. Laptimes are finally competitive and the car offers plenty of character. A dangerous underdog.

Coming soon to ACC for FREE as part of v1.1!

Wednesday:

Everybody loved the McLaren 650S GT3 and everybody wished for a more favourable BOP to make the car competitive. When McLaren presented the 720S GT3, fans couldn’t believe their eyes in front of the beautiful racing car that was screaming aerodynamics and performance from every inch of its body shell.

McLaren did try twice to showcase the car at Paul Ricard and Spa pre race tests, to convince customers to invest.

Rumours say that the BOP was even worse than the already harsh one applied to the 650S, making the car heavy and losing some of it’s razor sharp handling traits… The rest is history and the car never raced in the Blancpain series although it did in the GT World Challenge Asia series.

Fear not though, we’re here to the rescue as we bring this car to you, complete with a competitive BOP, as part of the shAdOw competition! #beACC
