Automobilista 2 V1.1.4.0 is now live - this time our usual complementary update has evolved into a major mid-month update in its own right, featuring another large batch of improvements and one fan-tastic new piece of content: the Brabham BT46B!

As with the 1997 Mclaren MP4-12 and its extra "steer-brake pedal" released last year, Automobilista 2 V1.1.4.0 pays tribute to another unique car in motorsports history: the Brabham BT46B - aka the fan car - made into folklore for its creative implementation of ground effects at the dawn of the new aero revolution during the late 70s.

Designer Gordon Murray came up with the concept In attempt to boost the performance of the BT46 against the mighty Lotus 79, which had been dominating the 1978 F1 season up until then - under the pretense of improving airflow and cooling through the drivetrain (which it actually also did) the fan in the BT46B would blow faster as the engine revved up, and as it did it would suck the air from underneath the car, generating astronomical levels of downforce in the process.

The car raced only once - the Swedish GP of 1978, and duly won it in dominating fashion at the hands of Niki Lauda. Bernie Ecclestone - who owned the Brabham team and at the time was also beginning to take a leading role in the newly formed F1 constructors association - decided to retire the concept to avoid stirring a feud with other constructors; contrary to common misconception, the BT46B was never banned or deemed illegal, and went into retirement with the distinct achievement of winning 100% of the races it entered.

Now the Brabham BT46B has been brought back to life in Automobilista 2 to continue taking the fight to the Lotus 79 for ground effect supremacy!

There is a lot more good value in this new update - check out below the full
