How Many Cars Are Free in Assetto Corsa?

If you‘re new to the world of realistic racing simulators, you may be wondering – just how many cars come free in Assetto Corsa? With its laser-focused emphasis on providing an authentic driving experience, Assetto Corsa has become a favorite among sim racing enthusiasts. But what kind of content is actually included if you just purchase the base game?

In this comprehensive guide, we‘ll give you the complete rundown on every car available in Assetto Corsa, both in the base game and DLC packs. You‘ll also get insights from sim racing experts on what makes Assetto Corsa‘s car selection so special. Let‘s start from the beginning and see what‘s free!

The Base Game Includes 10 Cars

When you first purchase Assetto Corsa, you‘ll get 10 cars in the base package. These vehicles provide a solid starter roster to begin enjoying Assetto Corsa‘s acclaimed simulation model and handling dynamics. According to veteran sim racer Jonathan, "The base content may be limited, but Kunos focused on quality over quantity. The 10 cars demonstrate the remarkable potential of Assetto Corsa‘s tire and physics modeling."

Here are the 10 vehicles included with the base Assetto Corsa game:

  • Abarth 500 EsseEsse
  • BMW M3 E30 EVO
  • BMW M3 E30 GroupA
  • BMW Z4 E89
  • Lotus Evora GTC
  • Lotus Evora GX
  • Lotus Exige 240R
  • Lotus Exige S
  • Lotus Exige S Roadster
  • Mercedes C63 AMG Black Series

This starting collection provides an appetizer of what Assetto Corsa offers, with popular sports cars from Lotus and BMW featured alongside more hard-core racing machinery. You‘ll also notice the first of many Lotuses – unsurprising given the developer Kunos‘ close ties to the British manufacturer. According to sim racing analyst Dylan, "The base game delivers a sampling of faster GT cars along with accessible road cars. It‘s a small but smartly chosen list to highlight Assetto‘s strengths."

Now let‘s look at the wealth of additional cars added through Assetto Corsa‘s DLC packs.
