Via its social media channels, Kunos Simulazioni and 505 Games have officially announced the release date of the Ferrari 296 GT3 for Assetto Corsa Competizione.
The ACC PC version of the new 2023 Ferrari 296 GT3 will be available on the Steam Store on 19th April 2023. No console release has been confirmed at this time. Most likely, the car will be released as a standalone addon, to be available for the new 2023 Ferrari Esports Series.
The 296 GT3 is the new Ferrari designed for GT racing that picks up the legacy of the 488 GT3. It marks the return to the track of a Ferrari equipped with a mid-rear-mounted six-cylinder engine like the 246 SP. The chassis and vehicle dynamics are designed to deliver performance and driving ease for professional and gentlemen drivers alike
The 296 GT3’s aerodynamics yield 20% greater downforce than the 488 GT3, limiting sensitivity to trim changes to a minimum. The Ferrari 296 GT3 made its debut at the 2023 Daytona 24 Hours.
