It has been announced that the new Project CARS 2 video game that is set for launch next month will feature the iconic Ferrari brand with the inclusion of ten different models.

Slightly Mad Studios and BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe have been working hard to bring the passion of the brand to the game with a careful selection of classic and current models to represent the brand.

The iconic Italian marque is celebrating its seventieth anniversary this year and will be seen in game with the Ferrari 330 P4 from 1967, which claimed victory at Daytona, through to the modern-day beast, the Ferrari 488 GT3.

There will also be the Ferrari 288 GTO, which in 1984 became the first supercar to hit the 300km/h barrier, the Ferrari F40LM from 1980 (which was the first supercar to reach 370km/h) and the latest hypercar, the Ferrari LaFerrari.

“Curating and selecting Ferrari’s from over 70 years’ worth of motor sport history was both a challenge and a joy,” said Stephen Viljoen, Game Director on Project CARS 2.

“Our fans’ number one request after Project CARS 1 was to bring Ferrari to our game. We’re proud and really excited to have managed to bring this legendary brand to the franchise. Recreating their handling and legendary performance was a top priority for us.”

“Having Ferrari in Project CARS 2 is fantastic news for our drivers,” said Andy Tudor, Creative Director at Slightly Mad Studios.

“But it also comes with its own unique set of challenges. With so much pedigree and expectation, getting the feel of these Ferrari’s right, in-game, was a massive responsibility for us. Fans and drivers of both Project CARS 2 and Ferrari expect something special, they expect the cars in-game to echo all the hallmarks of what it is to drive some of Maranello’s greatest-ever cars.

“We can’t wait to get our drivers into these Ferrari’s and let them experience what we’ve achieved. These cars are truly special.”

TheFerrari 330 P4, Ferrari 365 GTB4 Competizione, Ferrari 288 GTO, Ferrari F40 LM , Ferrari F333 SP, Ferrari F50 GT, Ferrari Enzo, Ferrari 488 GT3, Ferrari 488 GTE, and Ferrari LaFerrari will come with Project CARS 2 which is rated PEGI 3 and will be released on 22nd September 2017 for the PlayStation 4 system, Xbox One and PC.
