Exploring ACC GT2 Cars: What's it like?

In Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC), GT2 cars are a thrilling addition to the lineup, offering a unique racing experience distinct from GT3 counterparts. Let's delve into what GT2 is and uncover the differences between GT2 and GT3 cars in ACC.


What is GT2?

Gear up ACC drivers! If you're craving a challenge with serious power, consider stepping into the world of GT2 racing. These cars pack a punch with more horsepower than their GT3 counterparts, but achieve speed through finesse rather than overwhelming downforce. This focus on handling makes them a fantastic option for sim racers who want to hone their skills and feel the thrill of raw power. And the best part? You can experience it all right in Assetto Corsa Competizione. Buckle up and get ready to unleash the beast!

Key Differences from GT3:

  1. Performance: Despite having more horsepower than GT3, the GT2 cars are slightly slower overall, offering a different pace and driving experience.
  2. Aerodynamics: GT2 cars typically have less aggressive aerodynamic packages compared to GT3 counterparts, resulting in reduced downforce and cornering capabilities.
  3. Regulations: GT2 regulations allow for fewer modifications, emphasizing production car components and limiting the extent of modifications permitted, making the class more closely aligned with road-going counterparts.
  4. Handling: GT2 cars often exhibit different handling characteristics, with a focus on mechanical grip and driver skill rather than relying heavily on aerodynamics for cornering performance.
  5. Variety: GT2 class features a diverse range of cars from various manufacturers, each with its own strengths and weaknesses, adding depth and variety to the racing experience.

GT2 in ACC

In ACC, GT2 cars offer a compelling alternative to GT3 racing, providing players with a new challenge and driving dynamics to master. With their distinct characteristics and performance profiles, GT2 cars introduce a fresh dimension to multiplayer races and single-player campaigns. These are the GT2 cars in ACC: 

  • Audi R8 LMS GT2
  • KTM X-Bow GT2
  • Maserati MC20 GT2
  • Mercedes-AMG GT2
  • Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport Evo
  • Porsche 935 (2019)

ACC GT2 physics are also slightly different from the GT3's. The cars have a very similar feel, but the suspension is noticably different. When playing in VR for example, you can feel the added power in more nuanced pitching backwards. 

The cars are more of a handful to drive, yet offer a nice experience and engaging dynamics. From the Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport to the Ferrari 488 GT2, each GT2 car in ACC offers a unique blend of speed, handling, and agility, catering to different driving styles and preferences. Whether you're a seasoned sim racer or a newcomer to ACC, exploring the world of GT2 racing promises excitement and adrenaline-fueled action on the track. Just don't expect the same laptimes as GT3 cars ... The best setups for GT2 cars in ACC are a little tricky to find, as the cars are relatively new to the series.
