Roster for Project CARS Continues To Grow As Radical Gets On Board
Peter Donnell / 4 years ago
Slightly Mad Studios upcoming racer, Project CARS, is already shaping up to be one of the greatest racing games ever created and while many have already been playing the game in its various stages of completion thanks to its community driven development and funding process, the final game is still a few months away. The car collection is already looking pretty hot and now British prototype specialists Radical are on board as the latest car manufacturer to join the MWD-powered title.
Project CARS will feature three of the British company’s prototype racers, the cars will play a pivotal role in Project CARS’ extensive career mode, providing players with challenging vehicles to prove themselves in on their way to the top of the racing world. The selection of Radicals in Project CARS starts with the company’s most successful car, the Radical SR3. Built on a spaceframe chassis, over 800 SR3s have been built in various configurations, making the SR3 the most successful entry-level prototype on the market.
Project CARS puts players behind the wheel of the race-ready SR3 “RS version” that is powered by a 260hp Powertec 1500cc 4-cylinder engine. Drivers who have successfully mastered the SR3 RS can graduate to the SR8 RX. A faster and more powerful version of the SR3, the SR8 RX is powered by a RPX 2.7 liter V8 engine, giving aspiring racers 430hp to prove themselves with. The Radical gang is completed by an exciting new upcoming model, the RXC Turbo. Powered by a Ford Ecoboost 3.5 liter Turbo engine providing 460hp, the RXC differs from the other two Radicals in two important ways; Unlike the other two Radicals in Project CARS, the RXC is a coupe instead of an open-top car. Another main difference is that the RXC is fully road-legal, making it a very potent competitor for the other road-going sports cars in Project CARS. All the cars are super fast thanks to impressive power to weight ratios and should prove an exciting challenge for racing fans and gamers alike.

WMD members will be the first to test-drive these new additions once they are added to the Project CARS development builds. To shorten the waiting time, members also get to follow every aspect of the car development process on the WMD forums, from the first steps of development to the finished car out on track. Project CARS will be available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Steam OS, PC, and Wii U starting Fall 2014. A time that in my opinion cannot come soon enough.
