Chris Haye Takes A Look At The (ACC) BMW M6 GT3
Kunos Simulazioni has now deployed the third part of the Assetto Corsa Competizione racing simulator Early Access version. As you could already read in the official ACC release chart, the new update brought us a new car in the form of the BMWM6 GT3.
Last month, Chris Haye published an awesome in-depth look at the in-game Bentley Continental GT3 and shared some interesting info about the real world version of the British thoroughbred Blancpain GT Series GT3 racer. Now he does it all over, checking out the newly added BMWM6 GT3.
The current Assetto Corsa Competizione early access version (V0.3) is available via the Steam platform for €34,99. The next Assetto Corsa Competizione Early Access update is scheduled for December 12, 2018.
BMW M6 GT3
The BMW M6 GT3 racing car was introduced in 2016 and is based on the road-going BMW M6 Coupé. The car competes in both the Sprint and Endurance Cup of the European Blancpain GT Series and proved its worthiness as the winner of the 2018 Edition of the prestigious Spa-Francorchamps 24H race.
The M6 GT3 is powered by a race modified 4.4-liter V8 engine with BMW Motorsport M TwinPower Turbo technology. The engine pumps out a respectable 585 hp to the rear wheels via a transaxle six-speed sequential racing transmission. That is slightly less than the road-going ‘Competition’ branded M6. However, only weighing in at 1,300 kilograms, and fitted with an aero package that is optimized in the BMW wind tunnel, the GT3 is the quickest of the brothers.
Assetto Corsa Competizione is the Officially licensed Racing Simulator of the Blancpain GT Series by SRO. The game features the official drivers, teams, cars, and circuits of the worlds premier GT3 championship.
The ACC racing simulator is featuring an extraordinary level of simulation quality that allows players to experience the unique atmosphere of this GT3 Series, players can compete against official drivers, teams, cars, and circuits with the highest level of accuracy and attention to detail.
