Now we can hear the combination of the twin-turbo V6 and hybrid system in action for the first time within this particular sim – to date, it has only officially featured within Gran Turismo 7. Much like the prior Prancing Horse example, you’d be hard-pressed to hear the difference between this and an onboard video from the real-world.
The new footage allows us to further view the exterior of the 2022 24 Hours of Le Mans winner, which appears to have been recreated in exacting detail. However, of note in this footage, there are zero interior shots – all footage from on the vehicle is via a bumper-mounted camera angle.
A new track for the Le Mans Ultimate – when compared to developer Studio 397’s venerable rFactor 2 platform – progress on its creation is welcome.
The entire calendar for the 2023 WEC season is scheduled for inclusion, with Sebring, Bahrain, and Fuji yet to be shown within LMU. Likewise, the Glickenhaus SCG007s, Cadillac V-Series.R and every GTE apart from the Ferrari are currently missing in-engine debuts.
Under the stewardship of Motorsport Games, Le Mans Ultimate is set for a release on PC via Steam on 20th February. It is expected to feature an asynchronous multiplayer mode alongside a derivation of the RaceControl online ranking system debuted within rFactor 2 last year.
