Slightly Mad Studios has released plenty of new previews and information on the Corvette C7.R that will join their Project CARS title with next week’s US DLC pack.
Corvette’s current Le Mans challenger has been created with extensive help from Corvette factory driver Tommy Milner who made sure the car handles exactly like its real-life counterpart:
“I love any opportunity to help bring to life the feeling of driving the Corvette C7.R. This one in particular after such a successful 2015 campaign with Corvette Racing winning the Daytona 24 Hour, Sebring 12 Hour, and 24 Hours of Le Mans. I really wanted to help give the players the best experience of what it is like to drive our Corvette C7.R. From the high downforce tracks like Watkins Glen where the car is very responsive and easily hustled around the track, to the low downforce tracks like Le Mans where you really have to let the car flow through the corners and not over drive it, I think the players will enjoy the realistic challenge of driving the Corvette C7.R,” Milner commented.
“The team at Project CARS clearly had done their homework because the first iteration of the car I tested in game was already so close to the real thing it only took a few tweaks to really get the car dialed in. I was really happy with the feeling from the car at the end after working with the team to get it as close to the real thing as possible.”
Casey Ringley, Project CARS Vehicle Lead added: “There is no American sports car racing team in recent history more iconic than Team Corvette and it has been fantastic working with Tommy to ensure the look, sound, and feel of the car you’ll experience in game is as close a mirror to the real thing as possible. It is a unique car and Tommy’s feedback has been essential in setting up the chassis to run exactly as they raced the car in 2015.”
