More On: Project Cars

Be honest with yourself: You would love to drive an Aston Martin on a closed track for as long as you could. Well, it may not be the real thing, but in Project Cars, this weekend you will be able to do just that and it won't cost you a thing. Available in the DLC this weekend is the following:


Mojave is a private testing ground secluded in the wilderness of Nevada. The Mojave circuit comprises of five race layouts and a special open Test Track layout allowing players to freely practice and test their car's performance and handling via Banked Oval, Drag Strip, Hill Climb, Skid Pan and Tight Corner sections.


Designed by Ted Cutting and powered by an Aston Martin 2943cc straight six engine, the DBR1 rose to fame as Aston Martin's first ever Le Mans champion. Driven by Caroll Shelby and Roy Salvadori, the open-top DBR1 clinched top honors at the French classic in 1959, followed by teammates Maurice Trintignant and Paul Frere who helped Aston Martin to an impressive maiden 1-2 victory at the Circuit de la Sarthe.


To celebrate the 40-year anniversary of their overall victory, Aston Martin returned to top-flight prototype racing at Le Mans in 2009, fielding the brand new Aston Martin DBR1-2. Built to the LMP1 class prototype rules, the DBR1-2 is a closed-cockpit race car, powered by the company's proven 6-liter V12 engine. The DBR1-2 did not only hold up well at Le Mans, it also helped the team clinch the 2009 Le Mans Series Championship, driven by elite sports car racing aces such as Darren Turner, Stefan Mucke and Tomas Enge.


The Vantage is Aston Martin??s current choice for competition in the ultra-competitive GTE sports car racing class. Powered by an all-aluminum 4.5 liter V8 engine, the Vantage is battling for glory against some of the world's most prestigious sports cars. Competing in the world's premier GT racing class, the Vantage is packed with the latest racing technology including fully adjustable double wishbone suspension, lightweight body parts made of carbon and CFK and a fully adjustable rear-wing. The Vantage GTE has clinched countless poles, podiums, wins and fastest laps in sports car races around the globe, including classics such as the Le Mans 24 Hours and the Sebring 12 Hours.
