    Project CARS 2 comes racing on to PC and console next month, today we check out the seven Lamborghini cars due to launch with the simulation.

    Consisting of a veritable who's who from the famous manufacturer, Project CARS 2 will boast seven of the iconic 'Raging Bulls' when it launches this September 22nd, in what looks to be a nice mix of road and racing machines from the late 90's right the way through to the stunning 2016 Huracan GT3 of Blancpain GT Series fame.

    Already confirmed to contain an enviable list of top brands and models (see previous car reveal article HERE), the latest racing simulation from Slightly Mad Studios will have a distinctly Italian flare when it releases for console and PC next month. Both Lamborghini and Ferrari are confirmed to be part of the game in large numbers already, joining such historic brands as Porsche, Mercedes and BMW alongside the new generation from Formula One team McLaren's road going and GT arm, McLaren Automotive.

    As we build up to release of the game in just 23 days time, SMS have shone a light on the seven Lamborghini models coming to the simulation, and judging by the screenshots included in this article we can expect plenty of the typical aggression and flair so famously marking out this distinct brand of high performance car.

    The seven Lamborghini models coming as part of the initial launch offering of Project CARS 2 can be seen below;
    • 1999 Lamborghini Diablo GTR
    • 2010 Lamborghini Sesto Elemento
    • 2011 Lamborghini Aventador Coupé
    • 2013 Lamborghini Veneno
    • 2014 Lamborghini Huracán Coupé
    • 2014 Lamborghini Huracán LP620-2 Super Trofeo
    • 2016 Lamborghini Huracán GT3
    Diablo GTR

    The Diablo GTR was extensively lightened from the GT, with everything but the roof coming in carbon-fibre, and it came with only one seat—a racing seat surrounded by an integrated roll cage. Aero’ was also drastically improved with a rear-spoiler directly fixed onto the chassis.

    Powering the Diablo GTR is the mythical Lamborghini 6-litre V12 pushing out 590hp. Only 32 Diablo GTRs were built, each with lowered and stiffened suspension, rear-wheel drive, and a 5-speed manual transmission. They were raced in the Lamborghini-only Super Trofeo series, but also had some success Down Under where it won the 2003, and 2004 Australian Nations Cup Championship.

    A V12 mated to a 5-speed manual ’box pushing 590hp and weighing 1,395KGs along with and scissor doors—does it get any more primal than that?

    Sesto Elemento
    PCars 2 Lambo 3.png

    The 2010 Lamborghini Sesto Elemento—‘Sixth Element’ (AKA, the atomic number for carbon)—may be even wilder. The Sesto Elemento pushes out 570hp from a sublime-sounding V10 mated to a 6-speed semi-automatic transmission. Given the name, it’s no surprise that the chassis, body, and even suspension components are made of carbon, and that, coupled with two seats bolted onto the chassis, brings the weight down to a bewildering 999KGs. That means 0-100kmh in 2.5 seconds, and a top speed in excess of 300kmh. This is the best overall power-to-weight ratio of any Lamborghini in history.

    Twenty Sesto Elemento Lamborghinis were built, all sold for racing and track-days.

    Aventador Coupé
    PCars 2 Lambo 6.png
    For many Lamborghini enthusiasts, the Bizzarrini-Lamborghini V12 that began life in Lamborghini’s first-ever car, the 1964 Lamborghini 350 GT, was the last word in greatest-ever production power units. So when Lamborghini decided to introduce their new V12 for the Aventador Coupé in 2013, ending the lifecycle of the V12 after half-a-century of blood-curdling thunder and performance, the auto-world sat up and took note.

    Enthusiasts had nothing to worry about—the Aventador’s power and handling are extraordinary, the car’s shape the epitome of Lamborghini’s aggressive style-guide. The monocoque is carbon-fibre, the engine a mid-mount 6.5-liter V-12 generating 700hp at 8,250rpm, the suspension an F1-inspired front and rear horizontal mono-tube damper with push-rod system, and the result, a car that will inspire some hardcore emotion around the scanned Nordschleife in Project CARS 2.

    The low production numbered Lamborghinis in Project CARS 2 gets even more limited with the Lamborghini Veneno. Only four were ever produced (one went directly to the Lamborghini museum, and three went on sale). Unsurprisingly, they were then the most expensive production cars in history at the time (Eur 3,000,000).

    Unveiled for the 50th anniversary of the founding of Lamborghini, the Veneno was a revelation when it was introduced at the Geneva Auto Show in 2013.

    The Veneno (poison, in Spanish) is built on the Aventador SV chassis. The engine is an enormous 6.5-litre V12 pushing out 750hp. For that kind of power and performance (335kmh—electronically limited—and 0-100kmh in 2.8 seconds), you get a special 7-speed ISR ’box and four-wheel drive.

    Huracán Coupé

    The Lamborghini Huracán Coupé, meanwhile, the successor to Lamborghini’s “entry” supercar, the Gallardo, comes with the bulletproof Lamborghini 5.2-litre V10 kicking out 610hp with both direct and multi-point fuel-injection. With a weight of 1,422KGs, and on your way to 325kmh, you’ll get to 100 in 3.2 seconds, and 200kmh in 9.9 seconds.

    Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo
    PCars 2 Lambo 7.png
    In 2014, Lamborghini released the Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo, the motorsport world went into a bit of a frenzy. For Lamborghini enthusiasts, this was an event 50 years in the making.

    The Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo’s design was overseen by Mr. Dallara himself, and comes with a 6-speed sequential mated to the 5.2-litre V10 pushing out a sublime-sounding 620hp. Dry weight for the Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo is 1,279KGs, and that means 100kmh arrives in 3.2 seconds on the way to 320kmh. The car’s enormous and adjustable rear-wing, meanwhile, is both functional and epic.

    The car shines in the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo Series that travels to three continents—Europe, Asia and North America—delivering the thrills of this race-built Lamborghini to a captured worldwide audience and fan-base.

    The Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo also opened the door to Lamborghini joining the lucrative GT3 market in 2015 with the Lamborghini Huracán GT3. Project CARS 2 gets the 2016 version of this seriously capable GT3 winner, built in a close relationship with Barwell Motorsport, one of the UK’s most successful professional racing teams that have competed at the forefront of different motorsport categories for five decades.

    Huracán GT3
    PCars 2 Lambo 8.png
    For 2017, Barwell Motorsport is running a Huracán GT3 in the British GT Championship as well as in the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup. Driver Jon Minshaw currently leads the British GT Championship with four wins on the season including a fine drive to the checkers at Spa. Project CARS 2 will also come with liveries that run on all the Barwell Motorsport’s Huracán GT3s in both series.

    The Lamborghini Huracán GT3’s success is built around an aluminium-carbon chassis that brings the car down to 1,230KGs with an optimum 42/58 front/rear weight distribution. Lamborghini again turned to Dallara for the aero’ work, and naturally Gian Paolo Dallara himself oversaw this project given his intimate ties to Lamborghini.

    To meet GT3 regs, the car is rear-wheel drive with Bosch Motorsport traction control. The 6-speed sequential ’box is mated to the same 90° 5.2-litre V10 engine in the Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo, but tuned down to 580hp for GT3 regs.

    The performance of the Lamborghini Huracán GT3 has made it a staple of GT3 grids around the world—just in August alone, it will perform in a dozen GT3 series on four continents. And come September 22nd, it will bring its proven race-winning performance to Project CARS 2.

    Project CARS 2 will release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC September 22nd.

    I do love a Lambo, but after coming off iracing, this and Forza I'm going to be quite spoilt for choice. At least forza is offering a demo.

    That screenshot in the rain looks absolutely amazing! I was looking at it for a while, trying to figure if it was a photo or a game :D

    Good list anyway, would love Diablo GTR for AC to match F1 GTR.

    PC2 has been awarded sim of the year, but to be honest, I would remain slightly skeptical about that, after playing the first one. Non the less I would love to try it, but I would have to upgrade my PC first.

    I'll definitely be putting some laps down with the GT3 version. So many GT3's to choose from though PCars2 will certainly be epic to say the least. PCars1 actually became quite a good game after all the bug fixes and updates. But I've been particularly impressed with the AI in the video's I've seen so far on Youtube.

    Has the rain FX changed in the latest builds? The first GTR pic from the cockpit definitely doesn't look like the old regular PCars rain on the windshield.
