Great job Andy Marshall and the entire SMS team. I believe Renault are a very good adition to pCARS as the cars licensed have a good mix of entry level competitors (Clio Cup and Megane RS), touring cars (Laguna and Megane Trophy) and high level prototypes (the two Alpinas).
I can't wait to take the Clio Cup for a spin on the Azure Coast.

Absolutely incredible list, guys! Perfect for the base game and with that connection now enabled, maybe we can later secure the RS01 and the new Alpine for DLC to top it off and turn le awesomeness up to 11.5... Merci beaucoup and félicitations to everybody involved, cant wait to throw all of those around the track! Ooh oui... eh, ooh wee!

Oh yes, petrolhd... I feel like I owe you a extra big special

MERCI MON AMI!

petrolhd
16-12-2013, 18:21
2014 Megane RS

The 2013 and 2014 are the same car, but I'm not splitting hairs! :) yes, our current model Megane will be turned into the latest Megane RS.

On a separate note of interest, I'll be meeting up with Renault Motorsport in the new year to discuss some other potentially exciting developments! :)

We needed this license for our career design and I'm very pleased we have secured it. It will make a huge difference to our title and Renault are fully behind us with the project.

Great job every one involved (including the screenshooters for the sales pitch). Congratulations on the cars choice, the Cup Clio will be a hoot and very clever to license the Alpine as our second LMP2 :)

Big Ron
16-12-2013, 18:40
Devs,

Why in the H*** Petrolhd is not a Blue Guy?!!

More surprising: why didn´t he get any promotion for his last two big efforts.

Congrats on capturing the license, but personally when looking at the list... not the most exciting cars in my opinion :a25:

Edit: Okay okay... except for the Clio Cup car.

Thank you SMS and ofc, Andy.

I'm getting a bit boring but, yeah, i have to say this: if you ever come to Portugal, say something. My house door is open and, there's beer :-)

Patrik Marek
16-12-2013, 19:29
oh wow! great stuff! I love the car selection

would have wished for the older clio ( since I like it visually) but the new clio makes much more sense though, will keep it fresh for longer, etc.
Love the official megane trophy and BTCC Laguna!

Tom Cornwell
16-12-2013, 19:30
Top work! Really good choice of cars as well that will help, especially career wise. The Alpine A442B looks interesting as I've never even heard of it, I'm sure that will be a blast to drive.

Thank You Petrolhead and SMS. Great selection.
What an extraordinary looking car the 1978 Alpine A442B is.
Also we can have great feedback from Nick on the Renault Cup car.
These cars nicely tie in with our current selection.

I saw the Clio cup at TT Circuit Assen myself. So that was quite fun to see at the time.
The rest of the cars don't really let my heart pound. The Megane line is just horrible looking. The old one was grandpa level dull and the new one is just ugly. The other cars aren't that good looking either. Even if they drive really well the brand Renault would never catch my eye exteriour wise. The same goes with any French car really, having bad experience with Peugeot myself. Although Peugeot has (had) in my opinion the better looking cars throughout its entire lineup compared to the other major brands.

Sven Brenig
16-12-2013, 21:35
Yeah..finaly Renault :a29:


But NO CLIO 197? :a17:

Dude27
16-12-2013, 21:46
The Megane line is just horrible looking.

The Megane Trophy cup, ugly…. I must be dreaming…. This one of the most exquisitely mean race car ever!

Dude27
16-12-2013, 21:49
Best Eurosport TV broadcast ever… the BTTC 99'-2000 : good roster, so much fun to watch…


Always good to have another manufacturer on board. Excellent news!! :)

117800
BTTC anyone :)

Tiago Fortuna
16-12-2013, 21:59
The megane runs in 2014 for the last time. Or at least one of the mechanics said so when they were in Estoril for the Renault passion days.

Hard to get info because my french really sucks :-\

But that thing is fast. I need to start thinking about having my camera with me even when i'm on my motorcycle :-)

Thank you Andy, SMS and the talented screenshot creators that helped sell the deal :)

Simon Kilmore
16-12-2013, 22:21
Great addition. The Clio Cup is super important for our career ladder I think so that's very worthwhile. The Alpine is certainly interesting looking but I like it, like an F1 car of that era but with extra bodywork.

Marcel Spuehler
16-12-2013, 22:35
I can just say thank you SMS and PetrolHD!

Love to see Renault, one more great addition to pCars...

Will be much fun with the Laguna and the Clio :a12:

Yay, no more Piraults...

All I care though is the Clio :a01: (The older gen one is probably one of the 1st game* mods I've ever driven)

*1st as in 1st ever, not 1st in PCARS, rofl

Patrik Marek
18-12-2013, 02:18
