Assetto Corsa Teasers Show off Lotus 3-Eleven, Porsche 911 RSR, Ferrari 250 GTO, and More

Assetto Corsa 19 February 11, 2017 by
Lightweight and nimble, the supercharged Lotus 3-Eleven is going to be a therapeutic experience when driven.

Looks like things are going to heat up very soon in Assetto Corsa. After the team outlined plans for the game at the end of 2016, Marco Massarutto has taken to his usual role on his Facebook page, and has once again begun teasing a wealth of upcoming content for the racer.

Previously confirmed late last summer, much of the teased machinery is unlikely to come as a surprise to many, but are welcomed sights all the same. Beginning things off is the 925 kg (2,039 lbs) Lotus 3-Eleven that we suspect will be a part of the ‘British Car Pack” confirmed earlier this year.

Powered by a 3.5-liter supercharged V6 engine sending over 400 horses to the rear wheels, the Lotus will prove to be quite a capable track car with enough “giddy-up” to make short work of the competition. Moving on reveals the likes of the Mazda 787B, Miata NA, Toyota Celica GT-FOUR, TS040 Hybrid, and the Audi R8 LMS, TT-RS Race Car, Sport Quattro E1 S2, and R18 e-tron quattro.

All we need to know is ‘when’, because the mid-engine 911 RSR looks ready and prepared to break some records.

Next up is the mid-engine Porsche 911 RSR racers are still patiently awaiting. While originally expected to release some time last month to coincide with its on-track debut, the machine has since been delayed with no firm release date marked on the calendar.

The good news is after recently showing up in a number of teaser videos, the RSR’s eventual release may not be far behind. The good news doesn’t end there, as Marco continued teasing upcoming content with the sleek hood of a familiar marque:

If you’re unable to tell, this looks to suggest that the classic Ferrari 250 GTO is also on its way to the game. This lines up perfectly with the team’s plan to celebrate Ferrari’s 70th anniversary with the release of a new car pack featuring 7 of the most iconic and famous Prancing Horse models in Assetto Corsa.

What a year this is already shaping up to be for the racer, and who knows what else the team is waiting to reveal when the time is right. Keep an eye on GTPlanet for more.
