    "+1,000 FB LIKES ACHIEVEMENT

    Assetto Corsa – TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION License officially revealed!

    With more than 10 milions vehicles produced per year, Toyota Motor Corporation is one of the most popular car brands in the world.
    It is also one of the most wanted car brands for racing games: drift lovers and race enthusiasts know very well many of its most iconic models, like the Supra MK IV, the Celica, as well as the modern GT-86.

    Therefore we are so glad to announce that Assetto Corsa will include in future, as officially licensed contents the following Toyota car models:

    Production:
    GT-86
    SUPRA MK IV
    CELICA
    AE-86
    Racing models:
    GT-86 GT4
    TS040 HYBRID

    Featuring an endurance prototype with the TOYOTA TS040 HYBRID, this agreement introduces a totally new category in the Assetto Corsa's garage, and other car models that race in the same class will follow in future. We are pretty sure gamers will appreciate this variety.

    As always, we'll be happy to share with our fans the making of these great and much requested Japanese cars. Our development team had the chance to test at Nordschleife and Vallelunga circuits some of these models, and will reproduce each one of them with the accuracy and the attention to detail that has been so appreciated since the first release of Assetto Corsa.

    We would also like to thank all our active AC fans purchasing the game and sharing with us their feedback and suggestions. You give us the energy and the resources we need to evolve and improve Assetto Corsa more than we ever imagined."
