Slightly Mad Studios, the developers behind ambitious racing sim Project Cars 2, have revealed a partial list of vehicles to be features in their upcoming game. It’s pretty long, but it’s not complete – the game is supposed to have one hundred and eighty cars when it launches. I didn’t even know there were that many cars in real life.
You’ll be able to use those vehicles across nine disciplines, twenty nine series and more than sixty tracks. That’s a bunch of impressive numbers. All of the cars have been approved by their makers, tested by real racers, and more, to ensure they’re as credible as can be. Here’s the official statement:
Each car has been faithfully built to exacting standards, with architecture that has been approved by each and every automaker, and handling that has been tested and approved by half-a-dozen real-world drivers. Project CARS 2 is the vivid expression of racing, and that authenticity begins with the very soul of motorsport—the cars.
There’s a lot of variety there, which is what’s most important. You’ve got everything your open wheel formula, a Nissan Skyline GT-R and a McLaren 720s, all the way to a vintage ’59 Aston Martin and a Renault Megane. There’s some proper choices to be made here. If you want a peek at the entire list, make sure you visit the official website.
Project Cars 2 is supposed to launch on September 22nd, on PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One. If you preorder, you’ll get the Japanese Car Pack, which includes Honda Euro Spec Civic Type-R, Honda Project 2&4, Nissan 280ZX IMSA GTX and the aforementioned Nissan Skyline GT-R (R32) Group A. If you decide to go with the deluxe edition, you’ll also get the Motorsports Pack, which consists of Jaguar E-Type V12 Group 44, Panoz Esperante GTR-1, Audi V8 DTM and Opel Astra TCR.
