Platform: PC, PS4, XBox One

Publisher: 505 Games

Release Date: 19/12/2014

Kunos Simulazioni has teased the possibility of more Mercedes-Benz models coming to Assetto Corsa, in a recent social media update.

As featured in a post on the official Assetto Corsa Facebook page (which the image to the right is sourced from), Aaron Davies – the Director of Developer Relations at Oculus VR, the California-based company behind the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset project – has been documented driving what appears to be either a Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG or SL65 AMG at the Autodromo Vallelunga during a visit to Kunos Simulazioni HQ.

The Kunos Simulazionioni studio is based inside the complex of the fabled Italian motorsports venue, and was one of the first licenced tracks to be featured in Assetto Corsa.

Whilst this isn't a direct confirmation of more Mercedes-Benz models coming to the Steam Early Access racing title, it is the first Mercedes-related announcement from Kunos Simulazioni since November last year, when it was revealed the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG road car and the SLS GT3 racing variant will be featured in the main release of the game.

It was also confirmed back in July 2013 that Kunos Simulazioni had succesfully acquired the Mercedes-Benz licence for Assetto Corsa, though no official details regarding which Mercedes cars will end up being featured in the PC racing simulation were disclosed at the time.
