Ever since the GT4 DLC pack was released in ACC, sim racers have been trying to set some rankings to see which car was the fastest overall or simply the fastest in specif kind of tracks.
Just as in GT3 car racing, where Balance of Performance (BoP) is used to keep things fair, the same idea applies to GT4 races to level out the playing field and keep racing competitively.
However, the BoP brings specific cars into play depending on the type of circuit being raced on.
These BoP changes significantly alter how a sim car performs, leaving drivers to re-evaluate which cars are best for time trial or endurance races.
So, in this guide, we’re going to walk you through the strengths and weaknesses of the top rated GT4 cars based on actual lap time performance.
After listing out the best cars overallwe will then have a look at the best GT4 car for each specific track layout, being slow-speed circuits or high-speed circuits.
That’s because not all cars are created equal, some may excel on one type of track while others perform better on another type, say slow-speed circuits vs high-speed circuits.
So without further ado, let’s dive right in!
What is the fastest GT4 car in ACC?
According to the current BoP rules, th Porsch718 Cayman GT4 seem to be the fastest car followed by the Aston Martin V8 Vantage and the Audi R8 LMS GT4.
Having said that, let’s now have a look at each of them in more detail.
Porsche 718 Cayman GT4
The fastest GT4 car in Assetto Corsa Competizione according to on-track lap times is the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4.
The handling of this car allows the driver to confidently rotate it rapidly withou losing the rear end, and its long tire life ensures that its stints are among the longest on the circuit.
The Porsche is a force to be reckoned with on any track, whether in a sprint or an endurance event, thanks to these two characteristics combined.
Moreover, rhe car is also very predictable also in the high speed corners and its optimal tyre degradation gives it another strong advantage.
It currently holds the highest number of fastest laps and it’s safe to say that the Porsche 718 Cayman is the GT4 car to beat in Assetto Corsa Competizione.
Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT4
The second fastest GT4 car in ACC is the Aston Martin V8 Vantage.
While not as fast as the Porsche in a straight line, the Vantage makes up for it in the corners thanks to its braking performance, unmatched by most cars.
Its braking is so good that it can be compared to the braking efficiency of a GT3 car.
In addition to that, the car’s stability is superior to its competitors in almost every situation, giving driver’s the confidence to push their car to its limits.
Audi R8 LMS GT4
Finally the 3rd fastest GT4 car in ACC is the Audi R8 LMS GT4.
While not as fast as the Porsche or Aston in a straight line, the R8 makes up for it in the corners, with good turn-in and a great overall balance.
It’s also very easy on its tires, which means it can do long stints without having to pit too often.
Unfortunately though, its biggest weakness is the braking efficiency, which is not on par with the other two cars and can be a very limiting factors in tracks such as Spa and Monza.
Fastest ACC cars for Low-Speed tracks
We believe the fastest ACC cars for low-speed circuits are the Porsche 718 Cayman and the McLaren 570S GT4.
Low-speed tracks are generally the most technical, with kerb riding and acceleration being crucial skills.
The Porsche checks all of these boxes, making it the ideal car to pick for a low-speed circuit.
Just to be clear, we consider low-speed tracks to be the following ones:
- Brands Hatch
- Laguna Seca
Fastest ACC cars for Medium-Speed tracks
We believe the quickest ACC cars for medium-speed circuits is the Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT4.
With this car, you can feel secure in knowing that pushing hard and finding the limit won’t come with too many risks. You can trust the stability of the car as well as its incredible braking performance to give you peace of mind while driving.
In fact even driving on medium-speed tracks that have plenty of corners, it’s vital to have a car you can trust, and the Aston allows you to just that and still be fast.
Just to be clear, we consider medium-speed tracks to be the following ones:
Fastest ACC cars for High-Speed tracks
Finally, we believe the fastest ACC cars for high-speed circuits are the Mercedes AMG GT4 and the McLaren 570S.
In these tracks you’ll need to have high a top speed, strong aerodynamics efficiency and stability through the high speed corners and braking zones.
All these cars seem to be particularly strong in these field, but the Mercedes AMG GT4 specifically excel in these tracks.
The McLaren, on the other hand, has an exceptional top speed and while it’s not quite as stable as the Mercedes, its engine speed more than makes up for it.
Again, just to be clear, we consider high-speed tracks to be the following ones:
- Paul Ricard
So there you have it, you’re now equipped to pick the fastest GT4 cars in Assetto Corsa Competizione for each different track condition.
Anyways, remember that new BoP updates can change things up over time so it’s always important to check the stats before you commit to a race.
We’ll keep this guide updated with any changes that may come in the future so make sure to keep an eye out for that.
In the meantime, enjoy your sim racing!
