Things are looking on the up and up for the upcoming Project CARS 2. While the original game had great intentions there was an obvious lack of car manufacturer vehicles on offer, especially from one renowned car maker, Ferrari. That’s about to change as Stephen Viljoen, Slight Mad Studios Game Director (who happens to be a South African), explains:
Curating and selecting Ferraris from over 80 years’ worth of motorsport history was both a challenge and a joy. Our fans’ number one request after Project CARS 1 was to bring Ferrari to our game. We’re proud and really excited to have managed to bring this legendary brand to the franchise. Recreating their handling and legendary performance was a top priority for us.
In total there are 10 cars added to the roster that host the prancing horse badge. These include the following:
- LaFerrari (2015): a hybrid, the latest and most powerful road car Ferrari has ever created.
- Enzo (2002): previous record holder, making use of banned F1 technology.
- F50 GT (1995): only three GT models were ever made. Features a V12 3.5-litre Formula 1-derived engine.
- F40 LM (1994): the last “analogue” Ferrari and final car built under Enzo Ferrari’s supervision.
- 288 GTO (1984): first road car to hit 300km/h.
- 330 P4 (1967): Daytona winner, called the most beautiful sportscar ever.
- 365 GTB/4 Competizione (1968): helped resurrect Ferrari’s floundering race GT programme.
- F333 SP (1994): led Ferrari’s Daytona comeback.
- 488 GTE (2016): second at 2016 Le Mans 24 Hours, third at Daytona 24 2017.
- 488 GT3 (2016): won the Bathurst 12 Hour in 2017.
Project CARS 2 launches on 22 September for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
