Project Cars car list, tracks and PC specs

What can you drive and where in Project Cars?

Project Cars has been let loose at last. It’s suffered repeated delays, seen a few glitches and bugs emerge, but overall this realistic racing sim has been well received by critics and fans alike.
That’s partly down to the game’s seriously impressive graphics and realistic handling, but it’s also due to the wide range of vehicles and collection of real and fictional tracks.
Below we highlight the tracks, cars and the hardware that you’ll need to run Project Cars.

Project Cars Car List

Slightly Mad Studios released an official final car list at launch, with the cars on offer broken down by their availability in each version of the game. That means you can decide whether you think it’d be worthwhile to pay that extra chunk of dosh for the Limited Edition Car Pack or Modified Car Pack.
What’s great about Project Cars is that all the cars below are not only available at launch, but you’ll be able to get behind the wheel of each without having to unlock them via DLC or through the career mode.
Thanks to the game’s repeated delays, developer Slightly Mad is also offering series of free vehicles
“We are immensely pleased to have this awesome machine in the game and to give fans the chance to get behind the wheel of a truly amazing vehicle,” explained Slightly Mad back in March. “The Lykan Hypersport represents the first of a series of free cars we’ll be giving away every month as a thank you to our fans for being so patient for the launch of the game.”
