PAGANI NÜRBURGRING COMBINED TRACK EXPANSION
The Pagani Nürburgring Combined Track Expansion featuring two beautiful vehicles from the stable of Horatio Pagani – the Huayra BC unveiled at this year’s Geneva Motor Show and the Zonda Revolucion – and the combined layout of the Nordschleife and Nürburgring Grand Prix circuit…
PAGANI HUAYRA BC
In 2011, Pagani’s Huayra took the world of supercars by storm as the prestigious Italian sports car manufacturer delivered a turbo-powered car for the very first time. Four years later, all of the strictly-limited 100 units as have sold as Pagani celebrates the model’s success with the brand-new Huayra BC.
Named after Pagani’s first-ever customer, car collector Benny Caiola, the BC takes the mid-engine Huayra concept to new heights. Slimmed down to just 1218 kilograms – a whopping 132 kilogram reduction from the regular model – the Huayra’s already-mighty V12 bi-Turbo engine has been beefed up even further.
Built by Mercedes Benz’ AMG competition arm, the M158 engine now provides an incredible 800hp of power and 1100nm of torque, transmitted using an automatic seven-speed Xtrac transmission.
99.9% of all drivers out there won’t ever have to worry about having to handle this kind of power as only 20 units of the hand-crafted Huayra BC will be built, selling for 2.4 million Euros a piece. Thankfully, Project CARS will allow all automotive enthusiasts an exclusive virtual experience with this incredible road-going masterpiece.
PAGANI ZONDA REVOLUCION
The Revolucion is Zonda’s last hooray for their famed Zonda R sports car as the Italian sports car maker ends the car’s production run with an ultra-rare, ultra-competitive version of their record-breaking creation.
Everything about the Revolucion has been pushed to the maximum as the Zonda R’s 750hp AMG V12 engine has received an additional 50hp while the car’s weight has been brought down to just 1070 kilograms.
The Zonda R has already been blurring the line between road cars and racing machinery and the Revolucion goes even further, offering drivers a fully-adjustable traction control system and a Formula-One-style DRS system.
While the car’s refined aerodynamics will help keep the Revolucion planted firmly to the track surface, a carbon-ceramic equipped Brembo braking system helps keep the beast in check.
Only five units of the 2.2 million Euro Zonda Revolucion have been built, making this one of Pagani’s rarest creations to date.
NURBURGRING NORDSCHLEIFE + GRAND PRIX TRACK
Project CARS is inviting drivers to tackle the ultimate Nürburgring challenge, giving players access to the combined Nürburgring Grand Prix and Nordschleife layout.
World-famous for hosting the annual Nürburgring 24 Hour endurance race, the combined track bridges the gap between the historic battles on the legendary Nürburgring Nordschleife and modern-day Grand Prix racing on the highly-modern GP layout.
The combined track features the shortened version of the Nürburgring’s state of the art Grand Prix layout, blending into the legendary Nürburgring Nordschleife. Racers have to master the best of both worlds as drivers have to prove themselves both on the technical bits of the modern Grand Prix track before transitioning onto the narrow, fast flowing, no-room-for-error Nordschleife layout.
The result is a spectacular 26-kilometer lap that challenges drivers with everything that has made the Nürburging a mythical place for automotive enthusiasts. From slow technical corners to long straights, elevation changes and banked corners – the combined Nürburgring layout has it all!
STANCEWORKS TRACK EXPANSION
The fourth Track Expansionfeatures two modified vehicles from the renowned car culture enthusiastsStanceworks, Mad Mike Whiddett’s insane MX-5 RadBul Formula Drift car, and the KTM X-Bow R, as well as a brand-new road course of Bannochbrae set in the highlands of Scotland…
KTM X-BOW R
The X-Bow is motorcycle specialist’s KTM first ever car creation as the Austrian company has entered the sports car market with an innovative no-frills roadster.
Drivers who are looking for a comfy ride might want to look elsewhere as the X-Bow-R is a purebred performance machine, coming without extras such as ABS, electronic driving aids or air conditioning.
Instead, drivers can enjoy 300hp of power coming from a two-liter Audi TFSI engine, powering a chassis that weighs less than 800 kilograms thanks to the extensive use of carbon fibre.
Despite being fully road-legal, the X-Bow-R comes with all the features of a competition car, including a removable steering wheel, pushrod suspension, a racing-spec Brembo brake system and a rear-diffusor for improved grip.
The light and nimble sports car sprints from 0 to 100 in just 3.9 seconds, making the X-Bow-R a very potent weapon even against more powerful sports cars.
MX-5 RADBUL FORMULA DRIFT
Formula Drift Racing star “Mad” Mike Whiddett has gained a reputation for building some of the most extreme drifting machinery on this planet and his newest project is undoubtedly the most spectacular – The MX-5 RadBul Formula Drift.
Don’t be fooled by the MX-5 name as the RadBul Formula Drift might be based on Mazda’s popular MX-5 road car but other than that, the car has little to do with the Japanese roadster you might see in the street.
Completely stripped down for maximum drifting performance, the car sports car sports 275-section Nitto NT05 tires that provide the needed grip to handle the extreme amount of power that hides under the hood.
Originally, the MX-5 was powered by a 160hp engine but Mad Mike has opted for a ‘slight’ performance upgrade, cramming Mazda’s legendary 26B four-rotor wankel engine into the nimble MX-5’s engine compartment.
The 26B helped Mazda to win the Le Mans 24 Hours in 1991 but while 700hp were enough to conquer the French classic, Mad Mike was looking for even more: Adding two Garrett GTX40 turbo chargers to the package, the engine now provides an excess of 1000hp of power, depending on the boost pressure settings.
Weighing just 1200 kilograms and being able to throw up to 1500hp at the competition, the MX-5 RadBul undoubtedly ranks among the most extreme and most successful drift cars ever built.
BMW 1-SERIES M-COUPE STANCEWORKS EDITION
Inspired by the BMW experts over at Stanceworks, the 1-Series M-Coupé Stanceworks Edition is a special edition of BMW’s popular 1-Series road car already available in Project CARS.
Sporting a body kit inspired by BMW’s successful GT racing machinery, the car’s aero package generates up to 350lbf of downforce at 150mph. Other features include a performance-grade braking system, a new exhaust system and Fifteen52 Formula LTW Monoblock wheels.
The competition-style conversion continues inside the car as the Stanceworks 1-Series comes with a full racing rollcage, bucket seats as well as a performance steering wheel and an electronic Motec display.
The features of the Stanceworks Edition go way beyond what meets the eye though as the car’s performance has been increased as well as the car’s engine now provides 460hp thanks to increased boost pressure. Furthermore, drivers can also use a new temporary overboost feature that activates an additional 50hp for up to 8 seconds.
BMW 2002 STANCEWORKS EDITION
Stanceworks have also created a special version of a true BMW classic, as Project CARS users can exclusively enjoy the BMW 2002 Stanceworks edition.
Based on BMW’s ultra-rare 2002 Turbo road car, this special edition is inspired by BMW’s successful 1970s tin-top racers, featuring touring car-style fenders, taped headlights and hood-mounted mirrors.
Other features include Fifteen52 Integrale SC three-piece wheels, a single windscreen wiper and a twin side-exit exhaust.
Inside, the car sports a stripped interior with a contemporary racing rollcage and classic bucket seats.
The car’s standard turbo engine has replaced by a 2.0L M12/6 Formula 2 engine, producing over 260hp @ 8000rpm, making the 2002 Turbo Stanceworks a potent competitor in historic touring car races.
Over 4.5 miles long, this new road course situated in the highlands of Scotland takes drivers through the village of Bannochbrae and alongside its infamous ‘misty loch’ for a stunningly beautiful driving experience replete with spectacular views and sweeping curves.
Your Project CARS career also gets extended with two exciting invitational events – the Lakeshore Vintage Cup for vehicles from the 50s-70s and the V8 Bathurst Trophy specifically for the January Free Car – the Ford Falcon FG available separately.
CLASSIC LOTUS TRACK EXPANSION
The third Track Expansion features four historic Classic Team Lotus cars and three historic locations to drive them on…
1965 LOTUS TYPE 40 FORD
The Lotus 40 marked the last attempt of Team Lotus in sports car racing. An improved version of the Lotus 30, the open-top car was designed primarily with competition in the North American Can-Am series in mind.
Powered by a Ford 351 Ford V8 engine, three Lotus 40 chassis were built, being driven by Lotus drivers Richie Ginther and Jim Clark as well as American racing legend A.J. Foyt.
1963 LOTUS TYPE 25 CLIMAX (F1)
Designed by Colin Chapman for competition in the 1962 Formula One World Championship season, the Lotus 25 was the first ever race car to use a monocoque chassis, setting a standard that is still used in racing to this very day.
Powered by a Coventry Climax engine, the car made its debut at the 1962 Dutch Grand Prix and helped Jim Clark to his first Grand Prix win at Spa later that year. The 25 was raced until 1965, winning 14 races and clinching 17 pole positions along the way.
1966 LOTUS TYPE 38 FORD (INDY)
The Lotus 38 became famous as the first mid-engined car to win the legendary Indianapolis 500. Designed by Colin Chapman and Len Terry, the car was powered by a Ford V8 fuel-injected engine putting out around 500hp.
Jim Clark took the car to Victory Lane at the 1965 Indianapolis 500, proving the superiority of the mid-engine concept and ending the days of front-engined roadsters in Indycar competition. A total of ten Lotus 38 chassis were built and many of its design elements were carried over to the Lotus 49 Formula One car.
1967 LOTUS TYPE 51 (FF)
Based on the Lotus 31 Formula Three car, the Lotus 51 Formula Ford became one of the company’s most successful race cars. The 51 offered Lotus’ engineering and racing experience to young drivers looking to make their way up the open-wheel ranks.
The car became a massive commercial success as a total of 218 chassis were built and gave racers access to a durable and technically-sound race car for a budget price.
ROUEN LES ESSARTS
Rouen les Essarts was a legendary motor racing venue near the French city of Rouen that was a fixture on international racing calendars from the 50s to the 70s.
Using public roads, the circuit was considered to be one of Europe’s finest and most spectacular racing venues back in the day, its 6.5 kilometre layout included challenges like a cobblestone hairpin and several blazingly-fast blind corners with little to no run-off areas, punishing driver mistakes instantly.
While racing at Rouen was unfortunately stopped a long time ago in real life, Project CARS lets everyone to test their courage by racing on what is one of the most thrilling venues racing has ever produced.
While the German Hockenheimring is still a popular venue for touring cars, formula machinery, and more to this very day, the classic Hockenheimring was a vastly different beast to the modern Grand Prix venue.
The track’s classic layout combined a twisty stadium section called the “Motodrom” with long straights cutting through the German forest. The classic Hockenheim track had a reputation for creating some of the most thrilling slipsteam battles ever seen in racing.
The combination of two very different track characteristics asks racers to make a major decision: will you go for maximum top speed or sacrifice some of it for more grip in the twisty bits? The right answer to this question is the key to a successful race at the classic Hockenheim track.
Vastly different to today’s super-modern Grand Prix venue, the classic version of Silverstone takes Project CARS racers back to the days when the British Formula One venue still had much more of its original airfield-track character.
Back in the day, Silverstone was a blazingly-fast high-speed track, challenging racers with a very fast 4.7 kilometre lap with legendary corners such as Becketts, Abbey, Woodcote and Copse – names that have become synonymous with great racing in the UK and beyond.
ASTON MARTIN TRACK EXPANSION
The second Track Expansion features three legendary Aston Martin cars and an exciting new location to drive them on…
Mojave is a private testing ground secluded in the wilderness of Nevada. The Mojave circuit comprises of five race layouts and a special open Test Track layout allowing players to freely practice and test their car’s performance/handling via Banked Oval, Drag Strip, Hillclimb, Skid Pan, and Tight Corner sections.
ASTON MARTIN DBR1
Designed by Ted Cutting and powered by an Aston Martin 2943cc straight six engine, the DBR1 rose to fame as Aston Martin’s first ever Le Mans champion.
Driven by Caroll Shelby & Roy Salvadori, the open-top DBR1 clinched top honors at the French classic in 1959, followed by team mates Maurice Trintignant & Paul Frère who helped Aston Martin to an impressive maiden 1-2 victory at the Circuit de la Sarthe.
2009 ASTON MARTIN DBR1-2
To celebrate the 40-year anniversary of their overall victory, Aston Martin returned to top-flight prototype racing at Le Mans in 2009, fielding the brand new Aston Martin DBR1-2.
Built to the LMP1 class prototype rules, the DBR1-2 is a closed-cockpit race car, powered by the company’s proven 6-liter V12 engine. The DBR1-2 did not only hold up well at Le Mans, it also helped the team clinch the 2009 Le Mans Series Championships, driven by elite sports car racing aces such as Darren Turner, Stefan Mücke & Tomas Enge.
2014 ASTON MARTIN VANTAGE GTE
The Vantage is Aston Martin’s current choice for competition in the ultra-competitive GTE sports car racing class. Powered by an all-aluminum 4.5 liter V8 engine, the Vantage is battling for glory against some of the world’s most prestigious sports cars.
Competing in the world’s premier GT racing class, the Vantage is packed with the latest racing technology including fully adjustable double wishbone suspension, lightweight bodyparts made of carbon & CFK and a fully-adjustable rear-wing.
The Vantage GTE has clinched countless poles, podiums, wins and fastest laps in sports car races around the globe, including classics such as the Le Mans 24 Hours and the Sebring 12 Hours.
AUDI RUAPUNA PARK TRACK EXPANSION
The first Track Expansion includes New Zealand’s premier motor racing circuit – Ruapuna Pack International Raceway and three iconic and highly-successful cars from Audi…
RUAPUNA PARK INTERNATIONAL RACEWAY
Formally known as Powerbuilt Raceway, Ruapuna Park International Raceway is New Zealand’s premier motor racing facility, located 13 kilometers west of Christchurch, New Zealand.
Hosting some of New Zealand’s most exciting racing events, including the prestigious Lady Wigram Trophy and an annual round of the New Zealand V8s series, the track’s main 3.3 kilometer layout runs in an anti-clockwise direction and its challenging layout incorporates many fast sweeping corners that reward smooth and precise drivers.
AUDI R18 E-TRON QUATTRO
In 2014, the Le Mans prototype rules changed again and Audi elected to evolve their successful R18 into a new high-tech hybrid showcase. Using their e-tron electric motors to provide quattro four-wheel-drive above 120km/h, the 2014 R18 has also featured multiple energy recovery systems. A weighted flywheel is used to store energy as momentum, while Audi also evaluated a system to recover energy from the turbocharger.
AUDI R8 LMP900
One of the most successful racing sports cars in its class, the Audi R8 LMP900 won the 24 Hours of Le Mans five of the six years it competed and the American Le Mans Series six times in a row.
With a top speed of 338km/h generated by over 600 horsepower from a 3.6l L Audi FSI V8, the light carbon fibre structure covered a modular, easy-access chassis that allowed expedited changes to be made to the internals of the car during races.
Nowadays, the R8 LMP900 remains one of the fastest petrol-powered LMPs with a 3:29 at Le Mans.
1989 AUDI 90 IMSA GTO
After their rally success with their quattro all-wheel-drive system, Audi turned to track racing in the late 1980s. They won their debut production-based championship in America in 1988, but the series quickly outlawed quattro. For 1989 they turned to the GTO championship, which featured tube-framed monsters that were only required to resemble the roadcar in silhouette. With their rally-proven turbocharged inline-5 engine combined with quattro, the Audi 90 GTO produced incredible power figures yet had enough grip to put it all down even in wet conditions. Despite missing the first two races of the season during development, the 90 won six of the last nine races, and managed a very close second place in the championship. For 1990, they decided to focus on the German championship and the 90 GTO was retired, but not before becoming an icon.
