A selection of Aston Martin's past and present racing vehicles will be coming to Project CARS, developer Slightly Mad Studios has revealed.
Included in this new licencing arrangement are some of Aston Martin's most legendary circuit racers, such as the Le Mans-winning DBR1 from 1959 and the one-off DP212 endurance car, to the Vantage GTE that's currently being fielded by Aston Martin Racing in the World Endurance Championship.
The full selection of Aston Martins to be featured in Project CARS can be found in the list below:
- 1959 Aston Martin DBR1 – The first (and, to date, only) Aston Martin to win the 24 Heures du Mans outright.
- 1963 Aston Martin DP212 – Despite its rarity and value, this one-off endurance prototype is a regular sight at classic car races.
- 2009 Aston Martin DBR1-2 – The fastest Aston Martin confirmed for Project CARS (even though it's technically a Lola).
- 2012 Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT4 – Aston's entry-level sports car, in 'first rung of the ladder' racing car guise.
- 2013 Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3 – Yet another addition to Project CARS's blossoming GT3 racing car category.
- 2013 Aston Martin Vantage GTE – Fingers crossed the real car's Gulf Oil livery is available on the in-game GTE…
- 2013 Aston Martin Hybrid Hydrogen Rapide S – Not just Aston's first hybrid racing car, but also the first vehicle to lap the Nurburgring on hydrogen power only.
As usual, crowdsourced Project CARS backers will be the first to experience these Aston Martins in the game, once they're added to the pCARS alpha through development builds (the V8 GT4, Vantage GTE and Hybrid Hydrogen Rapide S are available at time of writing).
