Marco Massarutto, Licensing Project Manager at Kunos Simulazioni, revealed today on his Facebook page that BMW’s M4 coupe is on the way to Assetto Corsa. This revelation comes after a test drive Massarutto had in the M4 at Vallelunga Circuit last year – a circuit home to Kunos as they occupy a pit garage outfitted as an office – and would inquire about licensing the car for inclusion in the game.
“Considering the size, I would never supposed this car was so nimble (and neither so powerful) until I drove it at Vallelunga last year. I’ve been really surprised, and the driving experience has been so exciting that I decided to require also the license of this model to BMW. And the best is yet to come, because for this particular car, we have created a special partnership with a very well-known company that will set a thrilling experience with the BMW 4M Coupé in Assetto Corsa. See you in Frankfurt next Spring.”
As you can see, a release timetable is not mentioned other than the peculiar “See you in Frankfurt next Spring.”, but we do know for a fact that the car won’t be included in the upcoming Bonus Pack DLC due out later this month.
