Project CARS 2 | Last Chance to Own Rare Sim Racing Supercars

Last Chance for Project CARS 2 01.jpg
With only days remaining before Project CARS 2 is delisted, sim racers have one last chance to own select supercars that are hard to find outside of this title.

Project CARS 2 is set to be delisted on September 21st, meaning that digital copies will no longer be sold through major platforms. Owners of the title will still be able to play it, however, and there are some facets of the polarizing title that sim racers may want to consider before it becomes far more difficult to own.

The driving physics in PC2 will forever be debated, with opinions ranging from unplayable to unforgettable, but there are certain elements of this sim that are less divisive.

Among the more widely appreciated features in the title is the selection of road and track day cars. Many hardcore simulators tend to lean heavily toward race cars, which often limits the experience of driving the world's most sought after road cars to titles like Forza and Gran Turismo.

But, Project CARS 2 packed its base content with a wide assortment of supercars and hypercars. There are more commonplace exotics like the McLaren P1, LaFerrari and Porsche 918, but the selection extends back multiple decades to include cars that are rare in racing sims.

A stock McLaren F1 can be found here, which despite being considered by many experts to be the greatest road car ever built, is absent from a surprising number of simulators. Or the Porsche Carrera GT, which gives the driver an exciting, analog driving experience thanks to a screaming V10 engine and H-pattern shifting.

The Porsche 959, Radical RXC Turbo, BAC Mono, Ferrari Enzo, Ford GT and Acura NSX are also included in the Road Car classes in PC2, plus numerous others. Many of these cars are available as mods for Assetto Corsa, but remain difficult to find as official content for any racing simulator.

Project CARS 2 won't please everyone with its driving experience, but those in the sim racing community with a love for supercars may want to consider buying the title before it becomes delisted.

it's the best game for RX content, far better than Dirt rally 2.0.
And we can use all the cars in the RX tracks, with crazy combos, point to point track, all the seasons, the rain is far better rendered than AMS 2, there is snow.
It's an awesome game, so fun with friends, we can use custom FFB files....
The AI is pretty bad, but for hotlap, it's so good.

Still don't buy the whole "licences are running out" bs. If that's the case howcome you still get games like gtr2 or race07 selling on steam? They'd have to have manufacturer licences aswell as series licences to feature the cars they do. Just another way of forcing people to buy their newer stuff imo

You dont get GTR2 with porsche ferrari. You get a version of the game without these brands.

You mean the GTR2 Steam version that literally has Ferraris and Porsches ripped out of it and replaced with grey ghost cars?
 
Ok while this is definitely not my favorite sim, I play it quite a lot because the many older cars and tracks that aren’t available in other sims. My favorite being the lotus 40 on the 1966 spa.
Somebody said most of the content is on ac, well my opinion of ac is,,, not to be spoken here. Anyway, I got lucky because my son bought it for me in a
Humble bundle and gave it to me for my birthday.
So if you are into racing the classics, this is the sim to get. It has more vintage content than any other sim except maybe power and glory.
 


AC version is so blatantly better than the eyes don't let me lie about it.

Look to the weight transfer and grip progression. AC works as expected in a real car... PCARS2 is just toy physics.

Case closed!
All i see is that the 3D model in Pcars2 is miles better.

Also, at the 23 second mark on the AC video...thats a huge amount of camber gain right there, i dont think that would happen in the real car.

Even modded with CSP etc. I don't think AC looks better than PC2. In vanilla mode it's not even close.

PC2 is better with some custom FF files but still a 'loose' somehow. This said, it's still got that nice historic Spa which is still to appear on AMS2
 
Almost all of the best content in PCARS2 is also available in better versions in AC... so, no reason to buy this sorry excuse of simulator.

PS: The McLaren F1 is available in AMS2... and it's an amazing car (today is better than the AC version).

Doesn't literally every car in AC handle like a faster and lighter Fiat 500

If your parameter of good simulation is 3D model, would be better for you to leave simulation and go to mainstream arcade realm, where all that matter is graphics.

Wish for a RL Fiat 500 that handle like an AC GT3 or this MLF1.

Hey, i am not the one trying to sell how the physics of AC are so much better with videos that actually highlight odd things in AC. So i commented the only real thing one can trully say from videos: looks.
