Project CARS (Community Assisted Racing Simulation) is a crowd-funded racing game where the community participates in the development of the game.

Project CARS gives players the freedom to choose their own destiny - whether that's starting as a karting prodigy and going on to become an Formula champion within 3 years, to return year after year and defend your GT title against all oncomers, or to prove your dominance across six other distinct and popular motorsports.

Featuring a dynamic time of day and weather system, full pit stops & strategies, fully-loaded online play, a comprehensive tuning system, over 100 tracks, bleeding-edge physics, and a world-class graphics engine supporting 4K gaming and Oculus Rift, Project CARS is the truly next-generation race experience.

Project CARS will allow players to experience one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious manufacturers, featuring a selection of the company’s most successful & iconic cars.

Renault’s arrival to Project CARS will give players the chance to experience six of the company’s most spectacular & successful road & racing cars, starting with one of their newest creations, the 265hp 2014 Mégane RS road car.

Project CARS is all about racing and everyone will find a Renault race car to match their skill level in thegame, starting out with the 2013 Clio IV RS Cup, one of the world’s most popular tin top racers.

Drivers fancying something more powerful will be able to prove themselves in the V6-powered Megane Trophy II race car or tackle the ultimate challenge, the 2013 Alpine A450 LMP2 prototype racer of Le Mans 24 Hours fame.

Aside from current road & racing machinery, the choice of Renault cars in Project CARS also honors the brand’s past competition success. Players will experience the 1999 Renault Laguna of British Touring Car Championship fame, one of the company’s most successful & iconic touring cars.

The list of Renaults in Project CARS is rounded out by nothing less than a geniune Le Mans 24 Hours winner, the V6 Turbo-powered Alpine A442B that Didier Pironi and Jean-Pierre Jaussaud took to the top of the podium at La Sarthe in 1978.
