Miami Florida-based Game developer, publisher, and eSports ecosystem provider Motorsport Games officially announced the Vanwall Vandervell 680 as part of the upcoming Le Mans Ultimate endurance racing game/simulator in development by Studio 397.
Keep in mind that all the included media represents a work in progress.
The Vanwall Vandervell 680 is a sports prototype racing car designed and built by the Vanwall Racing Team. It is designed to the Le Mans Hypercar regulations and debuted in the 2023 FIA World Endurance Championship at the season-opening 1000 Miles of Sebring.
The car is powered by a 4.5-litre Gibson GL458 naturally-aspirated V8 engine, which produces around 650 horsepower and can make the car reach a top speed of over 300km/h. The engine is mid-mounted and longitudinally mounted and drives the rear wheels through a six-speed sequential transmission. The Vandervell 680 has a carbon fiber composite monocoque chassis and uses a pushrod suspension system. The car’s brakes are AP Racing carbon-ceramic discs, with AP Monobloc 6-piston calipers.
The car is named after Tony Vandervell, the founder of Vanwall, a British Formula One team that won the World Championship in 1958.
Le Mans Ultimate will feature (some or all) official cars and circuits of the 2023 FIA World Endurance Championship WEC season, with the 24 Hours of Le Mans as its headline event. The cars list will consist of Hypercars from Ferrari, Peugeot, Porsche, and Toyota, alongside all the 2023 full-season WEC championship cars. You can expect high-fidelity models of iconic tracks such as Spa-Francorchamps, Monza, Fuji, and of course the Circuit de la Sarthe.
Initially scheduled to become available on PC somewhere in December 2023, the release date, was pushed back to 20 February 2024. Motorsport Games will later on evaluate a possible console release in 2024.
