Holy Crap, Project CARS. You Lookin’ So Good

Meet Project CARS, your new next-gen obsession.

Project CARS

This is not an image of a thing that is real. This is an image from a thing that is in a video game. Forreals.

If you are a dinosaur like me, then you might remember the 1983 Maxell Hi-Fidelity commercial that featured a butler, a man who doesn’t know how to sit properly in his chair, and the most intense enjoyment of “Ride of the Valkyries” this side of a Daniel Bryan entrance.

That idea—something being so real that you’re practically there—may be nowhere better displayed than it is in a video released today of the upcoming Project CARS.

Yeah, I know. It’s ridiculous.

The video takes actual camera footage (albeit somewhat low-res) of a BMW running a lap around Laguna Seca and compares it side-by-side with a lap simulated in the game. At points, it’s exceedingly difficult to tell which is the simulation and which is reality. The uploader—ADRIANF1esp—has also uploaded side-by-side comparisons that put Project CARS against live television broadcasts of races.

If you haven’t already heard of Project CARS, now you have. If you’ve already been obsessing over Project CARS, you have even more cause to be excited for its November release. Project CARS will be available and looking beautiful this fall on Steam, Xbox One, Playstation 4, and—Wii U? Hahaha okay, guy. Pfft. Wii U.

The developers of Project CARS have spared no expense to ensure that their game is the most next-gen-feeling title when it drops in a little more than six months, and the proof, as they say, is in the pudding.
