Oh bum, I'd forgotten that quite a few of these were destined to be DLC by the most recent car proposal. These ones to be exact:

- 1952 Mercedes 300SL W194
- 1971 Mercedes 300SEL 6.8 AMG
- 1989 Sauber C9
- 1990 190E 2.5-16 Evolution 2 (DTM racing version)
- 1998 Mercedes CLK-LM

of course, that could change, couldn't it devs

Haha, Ian you seriously need a PR consultant... A month of silence followed by total news overkill, big theatre stuff (as we say in germany)! :D

Congrats for getting Daimler onboard, very nice selection of cars too. Mega kudos for the inclusion of the Rote Sau, saw that car at the Retro Classics last year, it reeks epicness, makes facial hair grow unreasonably fast when standing too close to it. :a31:

Only way the selection could be even better is if the SLS would be a newer version or the Black Series. Also not sure what your plans with the 300 SL are, incredible car without a doubt but it seems a bit lost in the context of the game without contemporary compagnons to play with. Another round of kudos for not going with the more obvious and well known 1955 300SL, though.

Yeah, good question. If you re being honest, the 55' 300 SL is the prettier and much more iconic version. But then again, the 52' has a lot of racing pedigree and its definitely getting uniqueness points. Not even Forza has it.

PS: Another good thing is that whenever SMS needs some reference pics, there are several members from around Stuttgart that can take pics of all those cars in the (fantastic) Mercedes Benz Museum. :a04:

I saw the W194 last year at Mille Miglia and it was impressive. Being a racing car, I think it is better suited to pCars than a '55 300SL. I only wonder about why not pick a W196S (1955 300SLR).
But still I'm happy about the inclusion of the '52 car:)

This doesn't make a lot of sense, because the changes between 2011 and 2012 cars are quite dramatic. The complete outside is different, they changed from 4-door sedans to 2-door coupes for example.

Just found this somewhere....

Dear Mercedes employee,

We have fantastic news to deliver. Over the last few months, we've been negotiating for inclusion in the much anticipated, world beating driving and racing simulator, Project Cars. We are happy to announce that the negotiations have concluded and we have been successful. A number of our vehicles will be included in next years release. As you can understand, being associated with such a significant project is a huge step forward for Mercedes. A big congratulations goes out to all of those involved in these crucial negotiations.

Lots of love, Merc

:-)

23-04-2013, 07:45
I know this is going to seem like a damper, but just how are we going to be able to get these cars out in the main game, when we are struggling to get all of the cars we already have done in time for release? DLC and expansion packs are fine, but how are they going to fit into a main game system, which especially the career mode, would be a complete article upon release?

Benjamin Fischer
23-04-2013, 07:47
Some of the Mercs are included in the career plan already, so the resources for them will be there.

@Ian: is the licence valid for pCARS only... or it will be "spanned" all the way to pCARS 2 and so on?

Which means: are we going to see all these cars in the retail version of pCARS (or as DLC)?

Andreas Knopke
23-04-2013, 10:50
And how many of those licensed cars will we actually see in the game / in the DLCs?
I lost the overview of that 'car proposal - thread' :a32:

Bruno Alexandre
23-04-2013, 10:50
Most likely just for pCARS Togusa, licensing for a game that is not yet under development (even tho pCARS is the base for pCARS2) its a bit of a waste of money i believe.

AFAIK licensing has to be paid per game, but of course it saves a lot of time and money elsewhere to put previously made cars in pCARS2.

Bruno Alexandre
23-04-2013, 10:56
I wonder if we call pCARS2 Project CARS 2.0 and consider it as a Mega DLC if we can still use the current licenses :<

Probably a silly question, as its probably under licenses with FoM etc aswell, but having arrangements with some of these manufacturers ever give you access to their Formula 1 cars, such as Caterham F1 or Mercedes GP?

I've noticed simraceway for example seems to have a good deal going with McLaren for all their F1 cars.

Seconded..! And yes. Even as a notMake. The video clips of the Green Hell were awesome in a box. The 190 EVO 2.5 is an all time favorite, very much holding of breath till I can here the sound of it screaming at full song around "Eye-full".

Mine as well. It was shunned because of it's 5 speed gearbox in GT land, but that was the car for me. A very close second was the Nissan without the fender skirts. (...I hate those skirts. Ugh...) Both cars just felt raw and fun. Lost many hours to Sarthe with those two. I can only imagine what these will feel like with the new tires...

Throw in the added GT3 car and it's definitely been a good day at the track.

Thank you Ian for the news, and all involved who made it happen.

I'll be gone for a few days now as I await the return of the 4 expeditions sent out late last night to locate parts of my head.

This just sent it over the top when I found this thread after reading the fund solution and new tire news...

It wasn't pretty, but it does have a low-and-wide futuristic look. The big problem with the C291 was the unreliable engine (which isn't a problem in a game), but the C291 did manage to win its last race (at Autopolis). That was also Schumacher's last win in sportscars. It's certainly fair to say the car was a disappointment in terms of results, but it was a pretty interesting car IMO.

The C291 is also far better competition for the Jaguar XJR-14, Toyota TS010 and Peugeot 905, three of the greatest sportscars ever raced.

The C291 is also far better competition for the Jaguar XJR-14, Toyota TS010 and Peugeot 905, three of the greatest sportscars ever raced.

From Wikipedia


Unlike the Jaguar XJR-14 the C291 resembled previous sports-prototype, despite the fact that the redesign of the Le Mans Circuit de la Sarthe in 1990 meant cars with their low drag design, top-end power, straight-line acceleration and top-speed characteristics were no longer required. Unlike the Jaguar (and latterly the Peugeot 905B) the Mercedes still featured a full width low-drag single-tier rear wing and no front wing. This resulted in the car having a higher top speed than the Jaguar (and only slightly less than Group C cars) .

Mercedes did get pole though. Silk Cut Jaguar's advanced, Xjr-14 originallydid get pole, but was withdrawn for some bs/unknown reason.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1991_World_Sportscar_Championship_season

Mercedes built a successor to take it on, the C292, but it was never tested, as they fled to the more popular F1, partly due to new Group C rules, requiring deployment of high revving, naturally aspirated, low liter, costly F1 engines.

Mercedes did get pole though. Silk Cut Jaguar's advanced, Xjr-14 originallydid get pole, but was withdrawn for some bs/unknown reason.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1991_World_Sportscar_Championship_seasonMercedes set the fastest time in LM qualifying with the C11, but started 11th because the top 10 was reserved for 3.5L cars. The C11 was as fast as the 3.5L cars in qualifying because they could raise the turbo boost, but the C291 (and other 3.5L cars) was usually much quicker in race trim. The C291 was 3.3 seconds faster in Suzuka, 3.6 seconds faster at Monza and 2.2 seconds faster at Silverstone in fastest lap rankings, though the C291 retired in Suzuka and Monza. To be fair to the C11, the car did have to run with weight ballast in 1991, but the C291 ran faster than the 1990 C11 anyway.

The XJR-14 would have started on pole at LM but Jaguar pulled the car for the same reason Merc didn't qualify the C291 at LM: they didn't think the 3.5L engine would last the race distance. They most likely made the right decision; both Pugs retired early and only one 3.5L car was classified at the finish.

Mercedes built a successor to take it on, the C292, but it was never tested, as they fled to the more popular F1, partly due to new Group C rules, requiring deployment of high revving, naturally aspirated, low liter, costly F1 engines.It's unfortunate that Merc pulled the plug on the C292 while in the womb, but that's how it goes sometimes in motorsport.
