Race fans, there’s big Project Cars news out of Gamescom!

First up, a Limited Edition has been revealed. It contains a steelbook case with unique cover sleeve designs themed to each platform, a Project CARS: By Racers 4 Racers behind-the-scenes art book, five in-game bonus cars as well as special career events. I don’t have any official details as far as pricing or region availability, but so far the only retailer I can find with a Limited Edition listing is Game in the UK.

Here’s a close look at the five bonus cars included in the Limited Edition:

· McLaren F1 – Featuring a central driver seating position and butterfly doors, the McLaren F1 has a lightweight, streamlined body hiding an engine capable of 240mph and a 0-60 time of just over 3 seconds. To this day it remains one of the fastest production cars ever made.

· Sauber C9 – With a top speed of 248mph, the Sauber C9 was a Group C Prototype that still holds one of the fastest records at Le Mans. In the 1989 season it won all but one race of the World Championship making it a dominant force on the track and an aspirational legend.

· BMW M1 ProCar – During its years participating in a bespoke one-make series, Group 4 events, and various national series, the M1 Procar saw many legendary drivers such as Niki Lauda and Nelson Piquet behind the wheel and even a custom paint job by visionary artist Andy Warhol.

· Mercedes-AMG C-Class Coupé DTM – With its predecessor being the most successful car in the 28-year history of DTM, the AMG C-Class Coupé is a stronger, safer machine built on a naturally-aspirated V8 engine and incorporating larger wheels and a huge rear wing to make it one of the most competitive cars running in DTM today.

· 1967 Ford Mk IV – Winner of both the 1967 Le Mans 24H and Sebring 12H, and driven by legendary driver Mario Andretti, the Mk IV was ahead of its time breaking new technical ground that has influenced car construction through to the modern day where it still holds the record of being the only American car to have ever won the classic endurance race.

Bandai Namco has also announced the Modified Car Pack as a DLC pre-order incentive for Project Cars. It contains these three extra vehicles:

· Ruf CTR3 SMS-R – A race spec version of the already impressive Ruf CTR3 super sports car created by the talented engineers at veteran developer Slightly Mad Studios. This modified version produces over 750 horsepower and a staggering 330 km/h top speed making it a truly unique combination of technical excellence and aesthetic passion.

· Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster – An open-top hyper car with a monstrous top speed, racecar levels of downforce, and extravagant beauty to match its multi-million dollar price tag.

· Ariel Atom 3 Mugen – Instantly recognizable with its exposed red chassis and white bodywork while underneath the hood a tuned Honda Type R engine gets it from 0-60 in just 2.9 seconds.
