FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
London, February 20: Slightly Mad Studios is
expanding the collection of vehicles in Project CARS with another
prominent addition, as Radical Sportscars is the latest car
manufacturer to join the WMD-powered title.
Project CARS will feature three of the British company’s
prototype racers, the cars will play a pivotal role in Project
CARS’ extensive career mode, providing players with
challenging vehicles to prove themselves in on their way to the top
of the racing world.
The selection of Radicals in Project CARS starts with the
company’s most successful car, the Radical SR3. Built on a
spaceframe chassis, over 800 SR3s have been built in various
configurations, making the SR3 the most successful entry-level
prototype on the market.
Project CARS puts players behind the wheel of the race-ready SR3
„RS version“ that is powered by a 260hp Powertec 1500cc
Drivers who have successfully mastered the SR3 RS can graduate
to the SR8 RX. A faster and more powerful version of the SR3, the
SR8 RX is powered by a RPX 2.7 liter V8 engine, giving aspiring
racers 430hp to prove themselves with.
The Radical gang is completed by an exciting new upcoming model,
the RXC Turbo. Powered by a Ford Ecoboost 3.5 liter Turbo engine
providing 460hp, the RXC differs from the other two Radicals in two
Unlike the other two Radicals in Project CARS, the RXC is a
coupe instead of an open-top car. Another main difference is that
the RXC is fully road-legal, making it a very potent competitor for
the other road-going sports cars in Project CARS.

ABOUT PROJECT CARS
Project CARS is the first title to be created using the unique
crowd-powered WMD Portal. Already critically-acclaimed as being the
first true competitor to Forza Motorsport and Gran Turismo and the
premier authentic race experience on Wii U, Project CARS gives
players the freedom to choose their own destiny - whether that's
starting as a karting prodigy and going on to become an Formula
champion within 3 years, to return year after year and defend your
GT title against all oncomers, or to prove your dominance across
six other distinct and popular motorsports.
Featuring a dynamic time of day and weather system, full pit
stops & strategies, fully-loaded online play, a comprehensive
tuning system, over 100 tracks, bleeding-edge physics, and a
world-class graphics engine supporting 4K gaming and Oculus Rift,
Project CARS is the truly next-generation race experience.
WMD (World Of Mass Development) is a revolutionary platform
allowing games to be both funded and powered by the contributions
of actual players.
Developers simply submit their ideas to an active gaming
community that then funds the titles through the purchase of Tool
Packs. With these, those community members then become bona fide
contributors to that project allowing them to contribute ideas,
speak to the development team, download regular builds of the game,
vote on important decisions, collate feedback, and ultimately share
in any profits earned from the launching title.
WMD is therefore a unique prospect for both gamers that want to
get involved in exciting upcoming titles and developers looking to
raise funds for their projects. To see a full breakdown of the
details for both players and developers, plus lots more, please
