The People’s Car has made it to Assetto Corsa! The 1970 Volkswagen Beetle has been released by Soulvex, bringing the well known German car to Kunos’ sim.
The model for the Beetle was built by NightEye for a “Less Than 5,000 triangles” modelling competition, so the car model isn’t to as high a level as other cars in the sim. However, for an early release, it looks to be shaping up quite nicely. The car currently has one configuration (stock), but a track version and a “Herbie” version is in the pipeline.
The community seems to be latching onto this car, and I could possibly see this car becoming a community project. The current sounds for the car are a placeholder, so hopefully we can see an accurate sound set in the future. It looks like some other community members have also designed some models for VW Beetles, so maybe another model could be utilized in the future.
