Slightly Mad Studios have revealed the new McLaren 720S will be making it's video game debut in Project CARS 2 this year.

The brand new 720 S, revealed today at the Geneva Motor Show, will be appearing in a racing simulation for the very first time come release of Project CARS 2 in September, and it looks like the newest addition to the McLaren road car family is one of the most technologically impressive vehicles from the British manufacturer to date.

The car is scheduled to mark the next generation of supercar design from McLaren as production switches from the current 650S model, so well known from a series of GT3 specification championships around the world. The new car has been described as "revolutionary" by McLaren and features a brand new active carbon-fiber chassis structure known as the ‘Monocage II’. The car weighs in at just 1,283kgs (2,825.5lbs) which is a reduction of nearly 20kgs from its predecessor the 650S.

Suspected of being able to produce up to 30% more downforce than the 650S, the new McLaren should offer up a more stable and planted driving experience than anything McLaren have produced to date, added up to an all-new twin-turbo 4-litre V8 that produces 720hp (212mph max), making the new McLaren a potentially very potent weapon out on track.

Produced by Project CARS as part of a lengthy collaboration between SMS and the McLaren Group, the new 720S could well turn out to be one of the surprise highlights from the new Project CARS 2 title.

Project CARS 2 is due for release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC late 2017.

Looks like its coming along nicely, tho the backfire reflections on the hood are annoying as hell (assuming that's what those blue flashes are?) Can't wait to hear some reviews on the final product :)

I never took the time to understand where those blue flash came. Nice observation. With that said, i would guess that it's probably a render bug. A small burst of light shouldn't produce that much reflexion!
