'Project CARS 2' (ALL) Adds Ferrari To Its Lineup - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Aug. 2, 2017 @ 8:40 a.m. PDT

Project CARS 2 aims to include the largest track roster ever with 50 unique locations and over 200 playable tracks – and introduces ‘loose surface’ racing with dirt, gravel, mud, and snow courses.

Project CARS 2 features an expanded roster of over 170 cars and 60+ tracks, brand-new fan-requested Online Championships game mode, and additional racing disciplines – including ice, dirt, snow, and mud racing – over its critically acclaimed, ground-breaking predecessor (Project CARS). All of this racing action can be presented at up to 12K resolution graphics (achieved through linking three 4K PC monitors together to present a panoramic driver’s view) with VR support, making Project CARS 2 the most immersive and technically advanced racing simulation experience.

Passion for motorsport is embodied in the fan-requested multi-class racing that allows drivers to compete in a field of multiple car classes which replicates the world’s most famous endurance racing championships, past and present. Whether its iconic cars from the golden age of sportscars, modern prototypes, or GT3, all classes of car can now race together in either single or championship mode as Project CARS 2 scores the driver’s position not just overall, but also in-class.

Capturing all the thrills of motorsport means drivers competing in any car, anytime, anywhere, off- and-online, against both in-class competitors and other classes too.

Feel the adrenaline rush as you close-in fast on a GT race car in the coldness of night at Le Mans in your Le Mans Prototype; scan your mirrors on a wet day at the Nürburgring as a Porsche 911 GT3 R monster bursts from the fog and cuts past your Renault Clio as if you were standing still. This is motorsport in Project CARS 2.

Created by gamers and fine-tuned by professional racing drivers, Project CARS 2 delivers an unparalleled racing experience to players of all skill levels. To achieve this goal, Project CARS 2 utilizes leading-edge visuals, precise car physics, and realistic A.I. designed to mimic a competitive driver’s heart and mind that is sure to challenge players. The use of Slightly Mad Studios’ proprietary LIVETRACK 3.0 technology enables the development team to create dynamic real-time weather & seasonal effects, track surface conditions & time-of-day changes, and implement advanced tire grip/wear physics into the Project CARS 2 gameplay. By combining these features with the highest performance driving machines in the world, Project CARS 2 will enable players to live-out their dreams of being a racecar driver.


Ten faithfully reproduced Ferraris will be included with Project CARS 2 when it is released worldwide.

Ferrari has epitomised motorsports for over 80 years and comes to the world’s most authentic racing game franchise with a series of historic, classic and current models carefully chosen to represent the passion, the technology and the glorious sporting history that defines the brand.

Driving a Ferrari, the dream of any passionate motorsport fan is now fully attainable in Project CARS 2. Charting half-a-century’s worth of Ferrari’s supreme creations Project CARS 2 drivers will be able to push these 10 authentically-crafted Ferraris to their astonishing limits.

Beginning with perhaps the most beautiful car ever to have raced, the Ferrari 330 P4 of 1967 (a photo of which was proudly displayed in Enzo Ferrari’s office from the day it claimed total victory at Daytona), through to Ferrari’s modern-day GT warrior, the 488 GT3 and via such iconic Ferraris such as the Ferrari 288 GTO of 1984 (the first supercar to hit the 300km/h barrier),  the F40LM of 1989 (the GT version of the first supercar to reach 370km/h) and all the way through to Maranello’s current hypercar -  LaFerrari, Project CARS 2 drivers will soon revel in the cars and history that have made Ferrari the world’s most aspirational car brand.

“Curating and selecting Ferraris from over 80 years’ worth of motorsport history was both a challenge and a joy,” said Stephen Viljoen, Game Director on Project CARS 2. “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.”

“Having Ferrari in Project CARS 2 is fantastic news for our drivers,” said Andy Tudor, Creative Director at Slightly Mad Studios. “But it also comes with its own unique set of challenges. With so much pedigree and expectation, getting the feel of these Ferraris right, in-game, was a massive responsibility for us. Fans and drivers of both Project CARS 2 and Ferrari expect something special, they expect the cars in-game to echo all the hallmarks of what it is to drive some of Maranello’s greatest-ever cars. We can’t wait to get our drivers into these Ferraris and let them experience what we’ve achieved. These cars are truly special.”

The Ferrari 330 P4, 365 GTB4 Competizione, 288 GTO, F40 LM , F333 SP, F50 GT, Enzo Ferrari, 488 GT3, 488 GTE, and LaFerrari will come with Project CARS 2 on 22nd September, 2017  for the PlayStation 4 system, Xbox One and PC.
