Assetto Corsa – Console Versions Now Ready to Race With Version 1.15

It seems that Kunos Simulazioni has found the perfect way for Assetto Corsa console users to bridge the gap until the Ferrari 70th Anniversary Celebration Pack is released (console release date still unclear) – the Ready To Race DLC together with a game new update!

New Cars

PC users are already familiar with the following cars, and since console users will now also be able to enjoy them, here is the full list of them again (images can be found at the bottom of this article).

  • Audi R8 LMS 2016
  • Audi R18 e-tron Quattro
  • Audi TT Cup 2016
  • Audi TT RS (VLN)
  • Lotus 3-Eleven
  • Maserati MC12 GT1
  • McLaren 570S
  • McLaren P1 GTR
  • Toyota Celica ST185 Turbo
  • Toyota TS040 Hybrid

Beware, the Ready To Race DLC is not part of the Assetto Corsa season pass. Season pass owners will have to, like everyone else, purchase the DLC separately.
