The stunning new BMW M6 GT3 will form part of the roster of cars available within Project CARS 2 once the game launches on console and PC later this year it has been announced. With BMW Motorsport having only recently retired the incredibly successful Z4 from top line professional GT racing, the Bavarian marque have launched the all new M6 GT3 and have already begun to reap considerable success across the globe in a selection of highly regarded endurance race events and series. Piloted by renowned BMW GT drivers in several top quality GT events throughout 2017 in the build up to a return to Le Mans and WEC in 2018, the M6 GT3 has already gone on to establish itself as a formidable racing car and quickly become a fan favourite amongst the army of BMW GT fans around the world. Developed to all the latest performance and safety requirements of modern professional GT racing, the M6 GT3 both looks and sounds like a thoroughbred closed top GT endurance specification machine. Now it has been revealed by British developers Slightly Mad Studios that the car will form part of a growing line up of new specification GT3 machines due to form the release day content list for Project CARS 2 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC when it releases toward the end of this year. Aiming to get a jump on the announced version due to come to Assetto Corsa at an undisclosed time in the future, and looking to rival the already released version found in RaceRoom Racing Experience, it will be interesting to see the differences between the new offering from Slightly Mad Studios in Project CARS and it's main sim racing competition. As can be seen from the reveal image attached to this post, it appears that the licence for this car comes with a real world 'works' livery, as we see the M6 dressed up in full factory BMW colours, a paint scheme synonymous with the German manufacturer and it's motorsport programmes throughout the years. Unfortuantly the M6 reveal in Project CARS 2 has only been dropped as an early teaser at this moment in time, with the developers promising more images and information to be released separately in the coming days. Needless to say this is a significant licence agreement from the team behind the new game, and the car should be popular amongst the many GT3 fans out within the sim racing community.
