Without power, racing is nothing. But it’s not just all about going fast in a straight line as there’s a ton of joy to be found in some drifting machines, pushing out the power and running sideways to the action. That’s the main focus of the latest Project CARS 3 DLC too, as the Power Pack brings some super iconic Japanese rides to the party.
Available to purchase and download right now for Project CARS 3 players to enjoy, the Power Pack introduces four of the most epic Japanese rides that have ever been created. Full of tail-whipping joy, these icons of the track scene are just as happy to go sideways as they are to nail the highest of speeds on the longest of straights. Power is everything – but how you use it is the main concern.
Priced at £7.99, the Project CARS 3: Power Pack is the latest in an ever increasingly long line of DLC drops for the game, with this following on from a previous Legends drop at the end of last year.
As always with any Project CARS 3 addition, it is the cars which are the star of the show and with the Power Pack the names included are of the very highest quality. With full race conversions all round we’ve got the 1985 Toyota Sprinter Trueno GT Apex (AE86), the glorious 2002 Nissan Silvia (S15) Spec R Aero, the 2020 Nissan 370Z and the brand new Nissan Z Proto.
Full details of each as follows:
- 1985 Toyota Sprinter Trueno GT Apex (AE86) + Race Conversion – The club-to-rally-to-circuit racing legend with that all-action, high-RPM 1.6L twin-cam, near perfect handling balance, and light as a feather chassis comes to Project CARS 3. In the European Touring Cars Championship, it beat everything the world could throw at it for four consecutive seasons. In Japan, it became the go-to ride for the street-racing “hashiriya” crowd. And in the hands of the “Dori-Kin”, it defined the sport of drifting forever. Power, poise, performance: An icon of motorsport.
- 2002 Nissan Silvia (S15) Spec R Aero + Race Conversion – With a 6-speed manual and limited-slip’ diff, this Nissan may have become a drift legend with no less than seven D1 championships, but at heart, it remains a potent circuit racer. The Nissan Silvia S15 dominated the All-Japan Touring Car Championship in the early ’00s and, upgraded, remains a force in club racing around the world.
- 2020 Nissan 370Z + Race Conversion – It’s time to experience the thrill of the legendary Z. Half-a-century of race-won pedigree comes to the 2020 Nissan 370Z, with its world-first SynchroRev Match that auto-blips for performance-orientated downshifting, the fourth gen’ 3.7L V6 pushing 332hp to the rear wheels at a screaming 7,000rpm, and a 55/45 weight bias that shifts to an almost impeccable 50/50 when you nail the throttle. Lightweight, quick, and everything you’d ever want from a “Z”.
- Nissan Z Proto + Race Conversion – Get into the new Z generation months before its release into the world. Simulated for Project CARS 3, the new Nissan Z Proto has all the visceral cues of epic Z-design—long hood, short rear deck, and wheels pushed out to the corners. The Nissan Z Proto stays true to its DNA and then adds a modern twist to its iconic styling and comes with an all-new twin-turbo 3L V-6 and manual 6-speed box. The Z has always been about the intimate connection of driver to machine. Now it’s your turn to feel the thrill of pure driving pleasure.
Four cars for just short of £8 seems a pretty decent deal, but then the Power Pack provides even more fun. We’ve got a new track with four different layouts as we head to Lake Valley Speedway, Utah USA, there are 16 new events to enjoy, 12 extra liveries, 20 decals, 5 patterns and numerous trophies. You can also add additional rims, tyres, license plates, race numbers and a new character with more outfits and helmets.
Yep, there’s a ton of content included in the Project CARS 3 Power Pack.
With the base game in tow, just head to your favoured digital store and pick up a download of that Power Pack at your earliest opportunity. The Xbox Store will grant access on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S whilst you should also find the Power Pack powering through the PS4, PS5 and PC halls.
It’s time for sideways action with 4 epic Japanese rides soaked in tradition, legacy, and tail-happy fun. From the legendary “Hachiroku” to the yet-to-be-released 2021 Nissan Z Proto, the Power Pack is your shortcut to elbow-out racing delight.
