Today the brand new McLaren 720S was unveiled at the Geneva Auto Show – and guess what, this new McLaren supercar will be included in Project Cars 2! Slightly Mad Studios released a teaser video as well as a handful of screenshots this morning showing off their digital recreation of this exotic masterpiece. Like today’s announcement of the Fittipaldi EF7 Vision Gran Turismo coming to Gran Turismo Sport, the addition of the McLaren 720S to Project Cars 2 is the result of growing relations between game developers and automobile manufacturers alike.
The 720S is presented as the latest edition of McLaren’s “Super Series” line of vehicles, which has included models such as the MP4-12C, 650S and 675LT. The McLaren 720S features advanced technology such as active aero, active suspension, carbon fiber monocoque and a new twin-turbo 4.0L V8 power-plant producing 710hp. A curb weight of just 2,917 lbs (1,322 Kgs) allows the 720S to achieve a maximum speed of 212 mph (341 km/h) and a 0-62 mph (0-100 kph) time of just 2.9 seconds. If previous “Super Series” models are any indication, the new McLaren 720S should be nothing short of amazing. Perhaps this is best said by McLaren themselves though:
The McLaren 720S embodies our relentless quest to push the limits of possibility. Lighter, stronger, faster. It’s all of these and more. But how it makes you feel is altogether something else. Prepare to push the limits of what you thought possible in a supercar.
The McLaren 720S comes to Project Cars 2 after months of collaboration, including McLaren Automotive specialists working along side Slightly Mad Studios developers. Statements like “intricately recreated” and “simulated to the very last bolt” imply no detail was forgotten during the recreation of this British supercar.
After months of close collaboration between specialists at McLaren Automotive working side-by-side with specialists at Slightly Mad Studios, McLaren’s new 720S (710hp) supercar comes to Project CARS 2 in all its authentically-crafted beauty and tarmac-eating performance, intricately recreated and simulated to the very last bolt.
There is no denying the new McLaren 720S is awe inspiring, if the slanted LED headlights or sleek and menacing body panels don’t get your heart racing than the gull-wing style dihedral doors and active rear spoiler will. We still haven’t seen screenshots of the interior, but judging by the exterior we can expect to see high levels of detail and accuracy.
The 720S adds to an already impressive list of 170+ vehicles coming to Project Cars 2 for PS4, Xbox One and PC in late 2017. In case you missed it, you can catch up on everything we know about Project Cars 2 so far by clicking here and here.
