Slightly Mad Studios have released the last Project CARS build of 2012, introducing a first version of the brand new 1967 Ford MK IV.
Better known as the GT40, the MK IV was the fourth evolution of Ford’s legendary sports car racing challenger. Powered by a seven-liter V8 engine, the car went on to win both the 1967 Sebring 12 Hours & Le Mans 24 Hours in the hands of Bruce McLaren, Mario Andretti, Dan Gurney & AJ Foyt.
Build 374 adds an early version of the car to Project CARS, giving WMD members something great to enjoy during the holiday season.
As usual with early car releases in Project CARS the car is very much work in progress and still lacking advanced textures and other effects, the powerful big banger is already a challenging drive though as you can check out below.
