PROJECT CARS: CARS

Project CARS covers a wide variety of machines and motorsports.

Everyone has different tastes when it comes to cars; some love the sleek, smooth lines of an Italian supercar, some love the raw power of a US muscle car. And we all have our particular favourites when it comes to motorsports, teams, and drivers.

We’re passionate about cars too which is why we’ve made sure Project CARS covers all the styles and forms of racing and car culture that you love…

RETRO TOURING

Completing the wide variety of motorsports on offer within Project CARS is Retro Touring that harkens back to previous years of close pack racing exemplified by the BTCC and TOCA Tour. With iconic machines like the Ford Sierra RS500 Cosworth, Escort Mk I, and dominant classics from both BMW and Mercedes, Retro Touring is where your nerves and reactions need to be tough and quick as you battle and jostle for position on some of the most legendary tracks from around the world.

ROAD CARS

Whilst we all salivate over the curves of an Italian sports car, the growl of a V8 engine, or the sublime handling of a highly-tuned GT machine, for most people their love for cars starts with the one parked on the driveway of their house. Whether that’s a hot hatchback, a luxury saloon, or a city runner, Project CARS has a number of vehicles on offer that you’d likely see driving around in your everyday life.

Of course, in Project CARS you’ll get the chance to exploit these to their fullest by taking them out to the virtual track and pushing them to the limit without the usual real-world worries of burning through tires or overheating the brakes 😉 So be sure to check out these great cars that – whilst being more affordable than others – are great fun to drive and the entry point for many potential future race drivers.

TRACK DAY CARS

Road-legal but built for the track, these open-top machines are purpose-built sports cars – low to the ground, lightweight, and capable of incredible lap times.

Built by small but talented teams of engineers and designers, these unique visions of uncompromising and minimalist technical and aesthetic beauty are just as innovative as they are competitive and offer a pure racing experience for those that are are willing to get behind their wheels.

One shining example is the Mono created by BAC in Liverpool and driven by one of our talented professional racing driver consultants Oliver James Webb. Check out this startlingly-accurate comparison of Oli driving a lap at Oulton Park in real-life vs how it looks in Project CARS…

SUPER CARS

Supercars, Exotics, Hypercars… whatever you want to call them, they’re the cars we had on our walls as children and the cars that make our heads turn as adults.

With six or seven figure price tags, alluring bodywork, perfectly-balanced power, exquisite handling, and immeasurable desirability they’re the cars of our dreams and the ultimate expression of design, beauty, and technical collaboration.

Whilst players will be able to test and race these machines in special events and bespoke one-make series within their career, we want you to also enjoy these rides in the setting you’re most used to seeing them – the open road. Stay tuned over coming months to see the gorgeous road courses you’ll be able to drive these cars on but for now, sit back and enjoy these stunning shots…

LE MANS PROTOTYPES

Le Mans Prototypes are the fastest closed wheel racing cars used in circuit racing today, competing in a number of high-profile endurance events including the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans.

With vehicles from real-world manufacturers BMW, Renault, Bentley, Oreca, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi, Project CARS also includes LMP1 and LMP2 cars created by you, the community.

Get behind the wheel of these super-fast machines and participate in championships that will take you across the States and Europe and the iconic Le Mans 24 Hour race*.

Check out this great video from race driver Rene Rast matching his real-life time of 3:40.170 in an LMP2 car with a startlingly-accurate of 3:40.110 in Project CARS.

*For those with stamina, you’ll be able to play this in real time! But don’t worry, you can also choose to play it with ‘accelerated’ time-progression too 😉

GRAND TOURING

GT (Grand Touring) covers a wide variety of two-door road vehicles that have been upgraded and tuned to race spec.

With a heritage of prestigious machines, strict regulations, and noteworthy champions, GT racing is a motorsport with a variety of faces. Players will be able to drive in many different classes and cars from Ginetta G40 Juniors to GT3 and Endurance vehicles, iconic GT cars like the Ford GT40 Mk IV, Group 5 cars, and more!

So whatever your passion, be sure to check out these amazing machines and take them out to attack some of the most famous and challenging European and World circuits.

MODERN OPEN WHEEL

Modern Open Wheel is a world of cutting-edge technology, screaming engines, and record-breaking lap times.

Covering everything from entry-level four-cylinder engine types through to unrestricted V8s complete with advanced energy recovery and drag reduction systems, these single-seater open cockpit machines are all about aerodynamics, downforce, peak performance, and a driver racing on the knife edge of control at blistering speeds.

Players will have a choice of either plotting a career path from the rookie ranks up to the pinnacle of modern open wheel racing, or you can jump straight in at the deep end and strive to become World Champion straight away – the choice is yours.

So get ready to strap in and prepare yourself for one of the fastest forms of motorsport on the planet.
