It will be one of over 200 cars you'll be able to take for a virtual spin in Project CARS 3.
Trying to track down a 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray isn't easy right now. Production of the mid-engine sports car has been cut short due to the coronavirus pandemic and the remaining examples currently for sale have huge dealer markups. Fortunately, however, there will soon be an alternative way to experience the first-ever mid-engine Corvette, as it will star in a new racing game.
Developed by Slightly Mad Studios, Project CARS 3 is a new racing simulation game releasing on PS4, Xbox One, and PC this year. A reveal trailer gives us a first look at some of the cars that will star in the game, including the Chevrolet Corvette C8.R race car.
You'll also be able take the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray road car for a virtual spin, as Project CARS 3 will feature more road cars than the past two games, which focused primarily on track-only cars. This will be the first racing game to include the C8 Corvette. Unless it gets added to Forza Horizon 4 before Project CARS 3 is released, of course.
Other cars shown in the trailer include the Acura NSX, Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, and Mercedes-AMG GT R, as well as race cars such as the Porsche 935, McLaren 570S GT4. In total, Project CARS 3 will feature over 200 "elite-brand race and road cars" and 140 global tracks in 60 locations, each with configurable weather and time of day options.
Whereas the first two Project CARS were uncompromising realistic racing simulators that were difficult to play without a racing wheel, Slightly Mad Studios has made Project CARS 3's car handling more accessible to make the game appeal to a broader audience. For those who want a more realistic experience akin to the first two games, switching off the driving assists will ramp up the difficulty.
Project CARS 3 will also feature a new expanded career mode allowing players to rise through the ranks of ten different racing classes and earn money to buy and upgrade cars. Customization will also play a key role in the game, as players will be able to create their own custom liveries for the first time in the series. There's no release date yet, but Project CARS 3 is penned for a summer release so there's not long to wait.
