About This Game

AUTOMOBILISTA puts you in the driving seat of one of the most advanced racing simulators and delivers a uniquely diverse motorsports experience!

As the natural successor to Reiza Studios´ previous title - the highly regarded Stock Car Extreme, originally released in 2013 - AUTOMOBILISTA continues to simulate the premium Brazilian racing series such as Stock Car V8, Copa Petrobras de Marcas, Formula 3 Brasil and Mitsubishi Lancer Cup, now packing every car and every track from their respective 2015 championships.

Beyond the brazilian core, AUTOMOBILISTA is extensively complemented with one of the most diverse selections or racing vehicles you will find in a racing game: only in AUTOMOBILISTA will you be able to jump from a rental kart to a 800-HP single-seater; from drifting a Rallycross EvoX to jumping ramps in a Supertruck; from mastering the driving basics in a Formula Vee to managing a full 24h race in an endurance prototype; back and forth through historical and modern content featuring a sample from several decades of racing history - all of this and much more within a few mouse clicks. Thoroughly researched and cohesively developed for maximum simulation accuracy, AUTOMOBILISTA captures the fun only motorsports in its various forms can provide.

In addition to the content already present in Stock Car Extreme - all of which comprehensively upgraded - AUTOMOBILISTA turns it up to a new level by adding all the new cars & tracks proposed in the SimRacing Bonanza crowdfunding campaign, new simulation features such as dynamic track conditions, advanced transmission and tire modelling, substantial upgrades to physics, graphics & audio, new game modes and much more!


    These are some of the features that make AUTOMOBILISTA stand out as a purebred racing simulator:
  • Upscaled 720 Hz physics and 500 Hz input rates grants AMS super-accurate, high fidelity physics and Force Feedback
  • Vehicle physics based on models developed for professional racing teams with in-depth exclusive data
  • Minutely detailed and accurately modelled race tracks with 3D bumps, custom road properties and air density according to its location and altitude
  • Engine sounds sampled from high-quality recordings of real cars
  • Capturing the ever-changing demands of racing.
  • Cars with old-style gearbox mechanisms will demand proper gear engagement by using the clutch or synchronizing revs.
  • Modern cars will demand handling of advanced electronic systems.
  • High downforce cars will create an aerodynamic wake for those that follow.
  • 24h cycles will allow racing from dusk to dawn and at night.
  • Dynamic track conditions turn the racing line into a grippy rubbery trail and builds up marbles offline
  • Dynamic tire damage & dirt pickup add further extra dimensions to the driving experience

The new rFactor.
This game is what Reiza have built after acquiring the rights to use the source code for the gmotor 2 engine and what they have made is a more polished, advanced version of rfactor with far more detailed physics and force feedback. I predict this will become the go-to platform for modders. Assetto Corsa looks great, but has poor AI and strange physics quirks that lead to mod creators having to use values that don't match real-life values when making cars.
I think this will become the go-to platform for modders that rFactor was in the past generation of sims.
If you don't care about that, the stock content that comes with the game is also excellent. Now with cool features like flat spotting of tyres, and tracks that rubber as the race progresses. Excellent sounds and the new shaders make the game look quite nice, though still not as fancy looking as Assetto Corsa.
A great Sim with a lot of variety in the car and track selection with a good amount of quality mod content available that is only going to get larger.

I don't bother writing many reviews (so far) but feel this game really deserves one.

By far my favourite simulator on the market at the moment and and I have done a lot of hours in all of the competition except for RRE and iRacing due to the cost (esp in the case of the latter).

It is difficult to describe but the game feels absolutely spot on as far as simulation goes. I think much of that comes from the amazingly communicative force feedback which seems to have no lag whatsover. You really feel connected to the car and can really get in the "zone". The level of immersion is fantastic as far as i'm concerned.

If you rate a decent game engine and realism above everything else I would definitely recommend this over the other titles at the moment (although I also rate rF2). I think perhaps Reiza really understand the importance of input repsonse and feedback.

Many thanks Reiza for persevering with simulation and not selling out.

Problably the best real simulator available for public, nothing in this game is meant to be easier than in reality, although we can use aids to get used first. It got from cars from the entry levels of motorsport to almost all eras of the pinnacle of racing, with plenty of fun tracks already in the game, and plenty of others created by modders, it as custom championships for offline and a very good netcode, maybe the best with iracing for online races. With amazing force feedback, detail physics, detail vehicles dynamics and true engineering representations of the real cars, this game can be used like a racing training weapon, since is used by some of the best racing driving centers in the world, like Adrenaline Control and professional racing teams. The only downside is not having dynamic weather, maybe in the future.. The team behind this project is basically some of the world's best in simulation physics, sound, 3d models and software engineering, and all together have created Automobilista.

In my view, AMS is built around a very sharp observation. Around the year 2016, if you want a full suite racing simulator, you won't find one. One title offers superior visuals, but lacks some basic features even after years of development (Assetto Corsa). Other is packed with all the simulation features you want, gives you the best physics out there, but because of a lack of content and the somewhat last gen feel graphics, feels incomplete (rFactor2). The third teases you with officially licenced series, mindblowing sounds and attractive visuals, but again, fails in the features department, not to talk about robbing you with the plethora of microtransactions (RaceRoom Racing).
Simply put, AMS is the only complete package out there. Although many say it is based on rFactor 1 engine, if the car feels as good as it does in AMS, I don't care what is there under the hood. Besides the excellent physics and FFB, the visual side is also top-notch. I don't know what the magic there is, but it simply looks and feels great, better than rF2. I especially like the day-night transitions, which are seamless, and the night racing experience is probably the best you can get. If that's not enough, all the features you liked in the previous generation of sims (you remember, back in the time when there was this strange habit of publishing finished products) - finally, they are there. And a big plus is that the game offers complete series, and though I was initially full of doubts as to how interesting these series can be for me, the European simracer, it was a very positive disappointment concerning both the cars and the tracks. The range of vehicles is vast, and even me, who is not a rally guy at all, find myself driving the Lancer RX simply because it is so much fun to drive.
I had many doubts, but AMS totally convinced me - it is possibly the best, but most certainly the most complete sim you will get. The only negative in my view, is the price tag, but for the same array of content you could easily spend 60-70 EUR in some other titles, so maybe that's fair enough.

I'm a novice when it comes to simracing. This is proven by the fact I have driven around VIR in the Boxer and have spent more time in the grass than on track. But the feeling of driving the cars in Automobilista is so rewarding and satisfying, it won't matter how how many times your screw up. You'll want to drive another lap even if the car has 3 tires left on it. Thank you Reiza studios.

Pre-Release Review
Posted: August 25
AMS doesn't have the visuals of AC or pCars and it doesn't reach rF2's physics, yet it's the one sim i start up while all others (i own all the big ones, old and new) just get launched every now and then to justify having them installed on my SSD.

AMS has great unique content, the cars feel and sound great and the developer Reiza is really in love with their baby and they are incredibly fast in developing this title further.

Product received for free
Difficult choice...

2 years ago this game would have been a must have, but I feel like now it is just another racing sim. Nothing about this game is really bad but sadly nothing about it is really good either. It is just mediocre and (depending on what you want) there are better options out there.

Good:
- Runs well
- A huge selection of unique and mostly unknown tracks with over 100 layouts
- A lot of Formula 1 cars (old and new ones)
- Pit stops
- Day/Night cylce
- Dynamic racing line & grip buildup
- A huge amount of settings
- Championship mode

Bad:
- AI is mediocre and sometimes warps when you hit them to avoid contact (looks really weird)
- Graphics are average at best
- No weather
- No VR support planned (must have feature for racing sims imo)
- (Selection of cars and tracks doesn't appeal to me)
- No F1 licenses so you'll have to use fake liveries or create your own
- No laser scanned tracks
- Menu is ugly and slow

Verdict:
Like I said, it isn't a bad game. But it isn't all that impressive either. If you don't mind the boring AI and like old F1 cars then I would recommend this game to you. To all other people I suggest you look at rFactor 2, iRacing or RaceRoom. Automobilsta is a solid sim but nothing to shout about. The devs are great people, you can trust them.
