The Audi 90 IMSA GTO is coming
A few days ago the Simbin development team showed us the first preview pictures of the Audi 90 IMSA GTO model in progress. Today they have put a smile on the face of many sim racers out there. Simbin uploaded a small teaser video showing us some impressive flyby’s of the Audi Imsa 90 GTO model in game. This probably means the iconic IMSA racer will be soon available for purchase in the R3E store. Judging by the looks and sounds of the little teaser video, Simbin might just have a winner added to RacRoom Racing Experience.
For a lot of Motorsports fans and sim racers the announcement of the 720+ hp, four-wheel drive monster coming to RaceRoom Racing Experience is very exiting news. What is strange is that we see a lot of the same car models licensed to multiple platforms these days. Next to RaceRoom Racing Experience, also Slightly Mad Studios have announced the car to appear in Project CARS. Sim Racing licenses are almost becoming generic these days, so we wonder what might be the reason for this trend. That said, it can be regarded as good news, because whatever your simulator of choice might be, chances are you get the opportunity to drive the same cars as in the competing platforms.
The 1989 Audi 90 IMSA GTO was a wide-body turbocharged 4 wheel drive racers powered by a 5 cylinder 2190cc engine with 20 valves derived from the Group B and Pikes Peak rally cars. With a massive 720hp at 7500 rpm the car could beat the much bigger engined American IMSA GTO monsters. During a race the car just looked menacing . With an exhaust that was routed trough the passengers door while spitting huge flames generated by the KKK turbo, and the whistle and waste gate noises of the turbo powered engine, it was a feast for the spectating race fans.
