Project CARS has just recently gone Gold, and it releasing on May 6 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Following a succession of delays, it’s great to finally see the game ready to make it into our hands.

Reddit’s “darkdeus“, shared a number of screenshots, and it looks absolutely stunning.

Project CARS covers a wide variety of machines and motorsports, including:

ROAD CARS

Whilst we all salivate over the curves of an Italian sports car, the growl of a V8 engine, or the sublime handling of a highly-tuned GT machine, for most people their love for cars starts with the one parked on the driveway of their house. Whether that’s a hot hatchback, a luxury saloon, or a city runner, Project CARS has a number of vehicles on offer that you’d likely see driving around in your everyday life.

Of course, in Project CARS you’ll get the chance to exploit these to their fullest by taking them out to the virtual track and pushing them to the limit without the usual real-world worries of burning through tires or overheating the brakes 😉 So be sure to check out these great cars that – whilst being more affordable than others – are great fun to drive and the entry point for many potential future race drivers.

KARTS

As one of the most accessible motorsports on the planet participated in recreationally by millions each year, karting has been the starting point for many professional racing drivers such as Michael Schumacher, Lewis Hamilton, Juan Pablo Montoya, Danica Patrick, and Jeff Gordon.

Considered by some as the first step in any serious racer’s career, it can prepare the driver for high-speed wheel-to-wheel racing by helping develop quick reflexes, precise car control, and instinctive decision-making skills. In addition, it also introduces an awareness of the various tweakable parameters that can potentially improve the competitiveness of the kart (eg.. tire pressure, gearing, chassis stiffness) that will prove invaluable in higher levels of motorsport.

Players in Project CARS will be able to experience the thrill of karting in two forms – 125cc shifter karts perfect for short circuits and the more powerful 250cc Superkarts capable of speeds up to 160mph.

TRACK DAY 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 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…
SUPERCARS

Supercars, Exotics, Hypercars… whatever you want to call them, they’re the cars we had on our walls as children and the cars that make our heads turn as adults.

With six or seven figure price tags, alluring bodywork, perfectly-balanced power, exquisite handling, and immeasurable desirability they’re the cars of our dreams and the ultimate expression of design, beauty, and technical collaboration.

Whilst players will be able to test and race these machines in special events and bespoke one-make series within their career, we want you to also enjoy these rides in the setting you’re most used to seeing them – the open road. Stay tuned over coming months to see the gorgeous road courses you’ll be able to drive these cars on but for now, sit back and enjoy these stunning shots…

LE MANS PROTOTYPES

Le Mans Prototypes are the fastest closed wheel racing cars used in circuit racing today, competing in a number of high-profile endurance events including the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans.

With vehicles from real-world manufacturers BMW, Renault, Bentley, Oreca, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi, Project CARS also includes LMP1 and LMP2 cars created by you, the community.

Get behind the wheel of these super-fast machines and participate in championships that will take you across the States and Europe and the iconic Le Mans 24 Hour race*.

We will bring any new information on Project CARS as soon as it becomes available.
