What is Sol Assetto Corsa?

If you're a fan of Assetto Corsa, you're more than familiar with mods. Sol Assetto Corsa is one of the most captivating ones.

To put it simply, Sol is a weather mod, but not any weather mod!

Why you should consider Sol

If you're a fan of the marvelous graphics in AC, then Sol is a must-have for you! It makes the game look phenomenal, the game looks surreal with it.

You will get the ability to choose the time of day you want to drive in, the weather, and have the whole game looking much more elegant.
