First look at Assetto Corsa's 'Showroom Mode'

After the feature's first announcement a short while ago, the first video of Assetto Corsa's Autovista-esque 'Showroom Mode' has surfaced.

Uploaded onto YouTube by user "markus72000" (who we assume is an employee at Kunos Simulazioni, the Italian game development studio behind Assetto Corsa), the video showcases a Pagani Huayra in the default garage template that forms the backdrop for the Showroom Mode.

According to the description, the Huayra has been used to flaunt this feature's potential due to "all the different materials that have been used to build this awesome car".

Not all of the Showroom Mode's features have been featured in this initial demonstration - markus72000 assures us it's also possible to increase and decrease the rotation speed, for instance, as well as alter the camera angle - but the 126 seconds of footage do confirm the following interactive elements of this gameplay mechanic:

  • open/close doors
  • activate dynamic wings and bodywork elements
  • turn lights off and on
  • "get" in and out of the car
  • change the car's colour and paintscheme
All in all, it's pretty reminiscent of what we've seen so far in Forza Motorsport 5's ForzaVista mode, and we're looking forward to seeing the full mode (and the finished sim title, of course) when we finally get our hands on a complete copy of Assetto Corsa.

The change in technical regulations was always going to be a challenge, even more so for the teams that are not directly working with other automotive brands or sales, both in developing technology, sharing resources or in generating additional income from that research. It's a changing face of motorsport and a shame that teams now seem more reliant on pay drivers than ever before. Let's hope...
