Supercars and a Super Series come together in a jam-packed update!
2018 McLaren 720S Coupe
When you replace a staple of your roster, you best throw everything at it. The 720S stands as the successor to the McLaren 650S, a car that has enjoyed a beloved production run since 2014, and whose DNA flows through the McLaren 675LT. Boasting an improved 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, the McLaren 720S pushes 710bhp to bring the car from 0-62mph in 2.9 seconds. Every nook and cranny has been meticulously shaped to make this the most aerodynamic Super Series to date. It just so happens to be its sexiest as well. The McLaren 720S is earnable in-game in the Relentless Special Event starting September 10 (AEST).
2017 Supercars Championship Season
The Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 is a thousand-kilometer dash over 161 laps around Mount Panorama Circuit. The track is well known for its vast vertical difference of 174 meters between its highest, and lowest point, and on non-racing days, Mount Panorama is open to the public to drive on. Race drivers travel 6.213km per lap, and reach average speeds of 178km/h. Although additional marques have since returned to the Supercars Championship, for nearly two decades this annual event focused exclusively on one of the country's most fierce and enduring rivalries - Holden vs Ford. To a large extent, it still is.
2017 marks the introduction of the Gen2 Supercar, a dramatic evolution of the previous regulation vehicles. Traditionally, entrants were restricted to 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V8s (hence being previously known as V8 Supercars). Instead, teams are now able to use turbocharged four- or six-cylinder engines, housed in two-door coupé body styles. Despite these new rules, 2017 remains absent of any such cars. We will only see new cars built to these regulations in 2018.
2015 McLaren P1 GTR
The 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans was famous for its 17 hours of continuous rain buffeting the track. That, and the fact that debut marquee, McLaren, placed first, third, four, and fifth with the McLaren F1 GTR. 20 years later, the manufacturer resurrected the GTR label and released a fitting track-built tribute in the form of the McLaren P1 GTR. Available only to P1 owners, the combined investment in purchasing both these cars would set you back a minimum of GB£2.77 million. Not that there are any left in the showroom. The McLaren P1 GTR is earnable in-game in the Mastare P1 GTR Championship starting September 22 (AEST).
We're introducing a new twist on the Limited-Timed Special Events, dubbed Community Challenges. In this new series, racers will continue to compete to earn cars and other in-game rewards, however bonus rewards will be unlocked based on completing racing-related goals as a community. These goals are tiered, and rewards are based on overall completion of milestones. For our first Community Challenge, racers will need to complete 90 million laps within the open period of the Maplethorpe Veyron Community Challenge, starting October 14 (AEST).
This update, we're offering Flashback Events for the 2015 Porsche Cayman GT4, 2010, Renault Dezir Concept, and the 2015 Hennessey Venom GT. If you're missing any of these cars, now is the perfect opportunity to grow your garage and add some high-powered weapons!
It's a showstopper of an update. Head in-game and starting racing now!
