Assetto Corsa – Lotus Exos Type 125 at Monza.
Yesterday Kunos Simulazioni posted a set of preview shots showing us the Lotus Exos Type 125 on the track.
Today Licensing manager Marco Massarutto posted another beautiful shot of the Type 125 in action on the Monza track.
Lotus has designed the Exos 125 as an ultra high performance Formula one inspired chassis for wealthy customers. The machine is powered by a Cosworth 3.5 litre GP V8 engine that revs to about 10,300 rpm, producing 650bhp.
The powerplant is linked to a six-speed semi automatic gearbox with paddle shifters. The chassis is made of carbon fiber and features a carbon fiber pushrod suspension setup. The 650 kg Exos has a power to weight ratio of 1000 hp per ton. At the introduction, Lotus had announced to build 25 Exos cars at a price tag of one million dollars. Buyers will be part of the Exos owners’ club that will organize track days and events to familiarise drivers with their cars.
Assetto Corsa is being designed to provide a very realistic driving experience, with single player and multiplayer options, officially licensed cars and tracks developed using Laser scan technology, and the highest level of accuracy possible in reproducing real world motor racing environments. Also, Assetto Corsa will allow for considerable customisation and modification, in order to satisfy the expectations of professional simracers, gamers who prefer to approach the driving experience more progressively, and hobbyists who just like to collect lots of cars and tracks.
Assetto Corsa takes advantage of the experience acquired by the Kunos Simulazioni team with the development of netKar PRO and Ferrari Virtual Academy, both titles being notable as two of the best in the genre for their advanced physics model and vehicle dynamics. Our R&D office, located just inside the international racing circuit of Vallelunga, allows the team to develop the game with the cooperation of real world racing drivers and racing teams.
The Assetto Corsa physics engine is all new, using practical knowledge acquired from working closely with the elite of motorsport in order to engineer the best possible accuracy of physics and tactility of feeling. A physics engine like this begs to be used with officially licensed content: As such, Assetto Corsa will include renditions of international circuits, global car brands, racing prototypes, historic cars, single seaters and some of the most iconic cars ever built, providing a complete, and exciting,racing experience!
