Mercedes EQ Formula E Team – ACC Custom Livery
Mercedes. When they entered Formula 1, I wanted them to do well. Especially because they had Michael Schumacher as one of their drivers. After a couple of years of mid-table results, Schumacher was replaced by Hamilton – and that’s where my relationship with Mercedes turned sour and the Mercedes domination began. Similarly, with their Formula E team, they entered the sport with a driver I’ve long been a fan of. No, Belgian friend, I am not talking about Stoffel.
I mean Nyck de Vries.
And now, Nyck is the reigning Formula E champion (for which I drew a special illustration) and yet I am still hesitant to cheer for Mercedes. But at least now I (and you!) can look good around a track sporting this custom ACC livery!
With this entry, I have now created 7 out of the total 11 Formula E 2022 entries for Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC). You can find all previous entries for my ACC x FE custom livery series here.
You can watch the showcase video above, or read my description and see some cool screenshots below. However, if you already know you want to download the livery, feel free to do so by clicking the big red bar below.
If you want to know how to install this livery, I explain it in this post. If you want to start making your own, click here for my tutorial to get started. And, if you want to see my custom ACC liveries, feel free to check them out here.
Mercedes EQ Formula E
Unfortunately for the sport, Mercedes has decided to pull out of the championship after the current season. Despite my distaste for the brand, I recognize this as a huge loss for Formula E.
Mercedes officially entered in the 2019-2020 season (season 6), after taking over their satellite team HWA’s entry. Their first season saw them finish 3rd in the constructors championship, while their second season saw them win both the constructors and drivers title.
The livery is, at first glance, not a very remarkable one. It seems to largely follow its Formula 1 counterpart. However, the Mercedes stars on the back of the car are blue, after their EQ branding. These brightly coloured stars really bring the whole livery together, something which I tried to emulate in my ACC custom livery – as can be seen below!
Mercedes EQ Formula E Team – studio shots
As with all ACC x Formula E custom liveries I make, there are two mildly different options, one for each driver. The differences between the two can be seen in the double screenshots above.
Enjoy some more studio shorts with details down below.
And, last but not least, one little red star – as a tribute to Lauda. I’m aware that the Formula E team does not have a Lauda tribute star like their Formula 1 team has, but I added it regardless. I think it looks nice.

To showcase the livery a bit better, I took the car to Zolder for some pictures. Why Zolder, you ask? Well, for one: Vandoorne is Belgian, as is the track. However, one of the team’s main sponsors is Vestas. Vestas builds wind turbines – and Zolder has a lot of wind turbines!
The results of this photoshoot can be seen below!
