    - Advanced physics model
    - Accurate car dynamic modeling -Innovative artificial intellicence algorithms - Multiplayer races over the Internet
    - Fully customizable graphical user interface -Immersive 3D sounds
    - Official licensed cars (single seaters, Production, GT, GTR, historic F1 and GT cars, prototypes, and so on )
    - Official licensed tracks modeled using Laserscan technology (modern, historic, closed tracks, open courses)
    - Extensive support for user created mods

    Below are first previews of Asetto Corsa as well as a teaser video. The previews show off the Imola circuit as well as the Fiat Abarth 500 an a historic Formula One racer.

    Interesting, now we have a 4 way heavyweight fight for the title of ultimate PC sim. GTR3 - C.A.R.S - rFactor 2 - Asseto Corsa.

    This is a very exciting time to be a PC sim racer.

    Eh, except rFactor 2... and also, you don't know how GTR3 looks yet. I have a feeling GTR3's going to focus more on expansion than wasting their time on really pretty graphics, which I'm more than fine with.

    But it's still 4 heavyweights with all of the same amount of ambition, which is just awesome.

    Exactly, nobody was expecting this, nor their competitors. Taking advantage of the modding features the awesome FFB from NetkarPro / Ferrari Virtual Accademy and the Laser Scanner tracks, this Assetto Corsa may be a serious contender. Great years to be a sim racer! :tup:

    That's awesome, NetKar Pro has some of the best physics and FFB out there, but is somewhat slim content wise. Mod support is going to really put this over the top for awesomeness.

    Project CARS, I love you and you're very pretty, but I think you have to hand the award for outstanding graphics to Assetto Corsa.

    That's just amazing.

    Graphics are looking top notch! Physics is likely to be good as well, but only time will tell.

    It looks fantastic and the features sound nice, I hope it will have a better pad support than NetKar....
