Project CARS – Ginetta Car Collaboration Announced
Slightly Mad Studios today announced the new collaboration between them and Ginetta Cars for their current title Project CARS which will now feature three of the massively successful Ginetta Cars.
The cars to be including in Project CARS as part of the new collaboration include the G40 Junior, G50 and GT3 all of which will be available via the unique career mode as gamers advance through the disciplines of motorsport once the title is fully released.
Ginetta G40 Junior
Powered by a 1800cc Zetec SE engine that puts out 101hp, the G40 Junior exceeds all officially required safety standards, coming with a FIA safety cage and safety cell. Performance-wise, the car is equipped with a six-speed sequential gearbox and a Quaife ATB differential, as well as Michelin Pilot Cup tyres.
Drivers that have proven themselves with their first steps in the Ginetta world can move on to the G50, Ginetta’s weapon of choice for FIA GT4 racing. Launched in 2008, the car was awarded Autosport’s National Car Of The Year award and races both in its own Ginetta GT Supercup as well as the British GT Series and the FIA GT4 championship.
The G50 is powered by a Ford 3.5 liter V6 engine delivering 300hp. The power is transmitted using a Hewland six-speed sequential gearbox, and the car comes with Ohlins adjustable dampers and a MOTEC ECU and data-logging system.
Ginetta G55 GT3
Finally, the G55 GT3 marks the sharp end of the Ginetta racing universe. Weighing 1100 kilograms and being powered by a 4.35 liter V8 engine, the G55 takes on the cream of the crop in GT racing around the world.
The car is equipped with everything needed to compete in some of the world’s most prestigious endurance races, including a six-speed sequential gearbox with auto throttle blip and manually adjustable brake bias. Furthermore, drivers get to enjoy advanced features such as a quick-release steering wheel, power steering and a driver display system.
