GT2 cars coming to ACC in January 2024

A short video popped up today showcasing the Maserati MC20 GT2 which will be part of the GT2 car pack and available as a DLC for Assetto Corza Competizione. This is the latest in a string of videos that will eventually lead up to the full release next month of GT2 cars in ACC.

What is GT2?

We covered this topic in detail in a previous article but simply put, this category comprises lower downforce cars with higher power outputs when compared to GT3 cars. The aim is to make the cars easier to drive since the reliance is more on mechanical grip and less on aerodynamic downforce. This fundamental change should make it more appealing to amateur drivers and probably fill up the grid nicely.

What cars will we get?

So far, we've already seen four cars:

  • Porsche 935 (2019)
  • Porsche 911 GT2 RS CS EVO Kit
  • Audi R8 LMS GT2
  • Maserati MC20 GT2
  • KTM X-Bow GT2

However, when this car pack was initially announced, the following cars were also mentioned:

  • Brabham BT63 GT2
  • Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo GT2
  • Maserati MC20 GT2
  • Mercedes-AMG GT2

These additional cars haven't been confirmed yet but we're confident that several more video trailers will be released over the next few weeks confirming most of them.

Final thoughts

We are high downforce fans and don't enjoy driving cars that rely mainly on mechanical grip. Our driving style tends to lend itself more to pedalling single-seater open-wheelers and prototype races. However, we are in the minority and low-downforce cars are extremely popular in sim racing and real-world racing.

We're therefore confident that the new GT2 cars will quickly become a favourite on ACC and may even kill off the much loved GT3 cars. Either way, it's always good to see high-quality content being released for sim racing.

UPDATE: KTM X-BOW GT2 was added to the list. Here's the teaser video:
