Automobilista 2 adds complimentary BMW 2002 Turbo in V1.2.4.3

On Monday, Automobilista 2 was updated to version 1.2.4.3. While a complimentary 1.2.4.2 version released late last week, the team at Reiza Studios also said it would be one of two updates coming within a week’s time.

Besides the normal slew of fixes and adjustments, the big ticket item found in V1.2.4.3 is the addition of the BMW 2002 Turbo to the Vintage Touring Car Tier 1 classification of vehicles in the game. This limited edition RWD BMW launched in 1973 and has 220 HP. The new-old BMW will opposite the Corvette C3 that released in the V1.2.3.0 patch in the same Vintage Touring Car Class.

Both updates also bring more optimization to the new Monza circuit in the DLC that launched alongside the V1.2.4.1 patch. Both of the changelogs are included below. I had a lot of fun wheeling the classic BMW around earlier today. If classic cars are in your wheelhouse, you’ll definitely enjoy the feeling of these new machines.
