Codemasters have announced a new car pack for their recently released title, GRID Autosport.
The Best of British car pack includes three notable cars that were engineered and produced in the UK, which are the 1995 McLaren F1 GTR, 2011 Aston Martin Zagato V12, and the 2007 McLaren Mercedes SLR 722. Lead Handling Designer for the Best of British car pack, Gehan Pathiraja comments on the creation process, saying that “we spend hours of research and a lot of time behind the pad and the steering wheel to make them [the cars] as accurate as possible”.
“There’s a lot of work that goes into it to make it feel like that car. Because we’ve taken a handcrafted approach, we really care for the gameplay and we want other people to experience that as well.”
Gehan has also commented on each of the cars featured in the Best of British car pack below:
1995 McLaren F1 GTR
“We all know the McLaren F1 is an awesome road car – this is the GTR designed for Endurance Racing. It’s got a huge wing that will give you massive downforce in the corners, it’s all about being brave and attacking those corners at speeds you never thought possible.”
2011 Aston Martin Zagato V12
“The Zagato model has bodywork styled by Italian designers, but has a typical Aston Martin V12 engine, very powerful, very torquey. If you can manage the weight and the grip and fire it out the corners, you’ll benefit from all that power from the V12.”
2007 McLaren Mercedes SLR 722
“It’s got a huge supercharged V8 engine that sounds like an old World War Two Spitfire. There’s clearly a lot of power being put out from the V8, and you can really feel that in the car in our game.”
The Best of British car pack for GRID Autosport is out now on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC for $3.95 AUD. Have you played GRID Autosport? Do any of these cars take your fancy? Let us know!
