The third expansion pack for Project Cars 2 got a bit of an early reveal on the Microsoft Store. This time around, Slightly Mad Studio is taking players to one of the most iconic races in the world — the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Perhaps the most exciting part of the forthcoming DLC, titled The Spirit of Le Mans is one of the classic Le Sarthe track layouts. According to the description, SMS faithfully recreated the track as it was in the 1971 film Le Mans starring Steve McQueen.
Looking up the historical Le Sarthe layouts, this should make it the 8.37 mile track number five used from 1969-1971. If record chasing is your thing, you’ll have a nice target to shoot for too. The race lap record for the course is 3:18.4 set by Jackie Oliver in 1971 driving a Porsche 917.
In addition to the classic track, Project Cars 2 will further add to the Le Mans movie theme with new cars. From Porsche, the 917 LH will join an already impressive list of classic vehicles from the Porsche Legends Car Pack. Also joining in on the action are the Ferrari 512 S and 512 M. All three cars feature 12-cylinder engines and that iconic exhaust note.
It’s not all about the classic though. SMS is also including four cars from the modern era of Le Mans. From Porsche comes the record-shattering 919 Hybrid – which is currently on its victory tour.
Audi gets a pair of cars in the new pack with both the Fuji 2016 and Le Mans 2016 R18. The Fuji car will focus more on downforce and grip, while the Le Mans car favors high-speed.
Rounding on the modern cars, the Toyota TS050 will also join the car list.
While there’s no official word from Slightly Mad on the pack, the MS Store lists a June 5 release date. That puts it just over a week out, and crucially, just in time for players to get some seat time before the real-world event happens later in the month.
