Slightly Mad Studios, in collaboration with Porsche, is proud to present an exclusive experience built on the Project CARS Pro platform which will be officially launched in 2019. The “Porsche 911 VR-Racing Experience” will be on display at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show.
This bespoke Porsche experience was created by Slightly Mad Studios in close collaboration with Porsche and StarVR to deliver truly unique, intense, and unrivaled levels of immersion featuring the all-new Porsche 911 Carrera S.
“Using Project CARS Pro in the unveiling experience of the new Porsche 911 Carrera S is very special for us,” said Stephen Viljoen, Chief Commercial Officer at Slightly Mad Studios. “We’re developing the professional version of Project CARS for the automotive world to deliver a unique and distinct product with the ability to create unparalleled client experiences, and working with Porsche on this project, utilizing our professional simulation product before its official debut in 2019, is very exciting!”
Slightly Mad Studios and BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe are proud to announce the release of the fourth and final expansion pack for Project CARS 2, the Ferrari Essentials Pack, now available as a standalone purchase, or as part of the Project CARS 2 Season Pass.
Live all the passion of Maranello’s motorsport legacy around Ferrari’s very own mythical test-track, the Pista di Fiorano, and follow in the wheel-tracks of the Scuderia’s greatest racing legends, then fuel your adrenaline around the thrill-a-second, high-speed turns of the Mugello Circuit in eight irresistible Ferrari icons that capture all the performance, exhilaration, and decades of sporting excellence that make the Prancing Horse the world’s most cherished racing icon.
Dominate in sportscar- and GT-racing with the Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa and the Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta, two full-blooded racing legends that overwhelmed the competition in the ’50s and ’60s scoring hundreds of wins between them including overall wins at Le Mans and the World Championship of Makes.
Tame the raw power of the banshee-wailing, fire-spitting Group 5 Ferrari 512 BB LM — a V12 monster that singularly defined its age and the ethos of big engines, big horsepower, big aero and big noise.
Explore the limits of the final car Enzo Ferrari ever created, the peerless Ferrari F40 — an elemental supercar that embodied decades of Ferrari’s motorsport experience and iconic design with the purity of a machine that came with no aids, dollops of turbo-charged power, and a simple desire to thrill.
Feel the cut-and-thrust of spec’-racing at its finest in the Ferrari F355 Challenge that built the reputation of the one-make Ferrari Challenge series-the go-to championship for fun, bumper-to-bumper racing action.
And then complete your drive into decades of Ferrari passion with three of today’s most desired supercars: the track-only Ferrari FXX K with over 1,000hp and neck-twisting amounts of downforce: the irresistible Ferrari 458 Speciale A, for many one of the most complete supercars in the world: and the snarling, impudent, and menacing Ferrari F12tdf that was created by Maranello’s engineers and test-drivers with one simple purpose-to test your skills like no other.
Slightly Mad Studios and BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe are excited to announce the release of the third expansion pack for Project CARS 2, the Spirit of Le Mans, now available as a standalone purchase, or as part of the Project CARS 2 Season Pass.
Experience two of the most thrilling eras of sportscar racing at the world’s most evocative endurance race and discover the true Spirit of Le Mans as today’s LMP1 heroes meet yesteryear’s electrifying prototypes in one classic Pack that captures the pure essence of the 24 Heures du Mans.
Fight the “Battle of the Titans” driving for Ferrari or Porsche in an era that was forever captured by the Hollywood blockbuster movie “Le Mans”.
Slide into the cockpit of a 1970 Ferrari 512 S, Ferrari 512 M, or Porsche 917 LH to live-out the greatest, wildest sportscar period in history, all on a painstakingly and faithfully recreated Le Mans Vintage Track just as it was in 1971.
The Le Mans Vintage Track is a high-fidelity recreation of the Circuit de la Sarthe before it was forever altered in response to the breath-taking speeds of the Ferrari 512s and Porsche 917s, both capable of 360 km/h (222 mph) from their fire-breathing 5-litre monster engines.
Then fast-forward to now and fight for victory in four of today’s high-tech, nigh-on 1,000hp endurance-racing heroes―the Toyota TS050 Hybrid, the three-time Le Mans-winning Porsche 919 Hybrid, and two of Audi’s all-dominant racers, the high-grip Audi R18 (Fuji 2016 spec’) and the high-speed Audi R18 (Le Mans 2016 spec’).
Along with the cars and classic track that represent two of the most storied eras of Le Mans come 2 ultra-rare Le Mans racers: the 1980 Porsche 924 Carrera GTP (Porsche only built three of them) and the 1986 Porsche 961, the one-off Group C weapon that ran twice at Le Mans.
Yesterday and today’s heroes, the legendary Le Mans Vintage Track, and the purity of a 24-Hour race: this is the “Spirit of Le Mans”.
Along with the nine cars and vintage track come fiveCareer events, designed to breathe life into the spirit of Le Mans, and ten bespoke liveries.
This third expansion pack for Project CARS 2 captures the ever-thrilling battles and epic racing at Le Mans: with the game’s peerless day-to-night transitions and four seasons of grip-affecting weather, racing the 24-Hour French classic has never been this fun, challenging, or real.

Seventy years on from the launch of the very first Porsche road car in 1948―the Porsche 356―comes the Project CARS 2 ‘Porsche Legends Pack’, a visceral and unmissable celebration of Porsche’s 70th anniversary.
