Project CARS: arriva la Aston Martin

Aug 29 2014 06:10 PM | VELOCIPEDE in Software

Three years later, Aston Martin returned to top-flight sports car racing and Le Mans with the DP212. Powered by a 4-liter straight-six engine and driven by Graham Hill & Richie Ginther, the DP212 raced at the 1962 Le Mans 24 Hours and several other endurance racing events afterwards.Only a single example of DP212 was built, so Project CARS gamers will be able to experience a true and rare racing legend.
Fast-forwarding into the modern age, the Aston Martin Racing works team returned to top-class prototype racing at Le Mans in 2009, debuting the Aston Martin DBR 1-2. Using the company’s proven 6-liter V12 engine, the closed-cockpit prototype racer competed successfully against both works prototype and privateer competition.
Project CARS will also feature the company’s recent choice for GT racing around the globe – The Aston Martin Vantage. The Vantage comes in several versions, including the V8-powered GT4-class version, the V12-equipped GT3-class challenger as well as the Vantage GTE that competes in the World Endurance Championship which includes Le Mans 24 Hours.
Completing the lineup is the 2013 Hybrid Hydrogen Rapide S. Based on Aston Martin’s four-door, four-seat Rapide sports car, the car was developed in co-operation renewable energy experts Alset Global, using both a traditional 6-liter V12 gasoline engine and Hydrogen power.

WMD members will be the first to test-drive these new additions once they are added to the Project CARS development builds. To shorten the waiting time, members also get to follow every aspect of the car development process on the WMD forums, from the first steps of development to the finished car out on track. Project CARS will be coming to the Playstation 4, Xbox One, Steam OS, WiiU & PC, starting November 2014.

Project CARS: le Track Day Cars

Aug 27 2014 07:55 AM | VELOCIPEDE in Software

Dopo averci presentato le monoposto, le GT, i Prototipi e le Supercars, il team Slightly ci presenta oggi le Track Day Cars che saranno protagoniste del suo prossimo Project 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.
