The latest fortnightly update for Assetto Corsa has just gone live, adding additional content and improved features to Kunos Simulazioni's work-in-progress PC racing sim.
Headlining the "V0.8" patch are the two new cars for the title: Niki Lauda's Ferrari 312T Formula One car (which was teased by developer Kunos earlier this week) and the Lotus Exige 240 road car. A more racier 'S3' version of the aforementioned Exige is also included in the update.
