We’ve been teasing you with the classic cars for F1® 2018 for a few weeks now, and today, we’re very happy to be showing you the full roster of classic cars in F1 2018, the official videogame of the 2018 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP. With F1 2018, we’re introducing a new class of six iconic cars from the 1970s and the 1980s, as well as the already announced 2009 Brawn and 2003 Williams. Oh, and don’t forget all of the classic cars from F1 2017! Watch the reveal below, or you can check it out on our YouTube channel here:
These cars include James Hunt’s legendary 1976 championship winning McLaren M23D and Niki Lauda’s Ferrari 312 T2, both of which featured in ‘Rush’ (2013).
They are joined by two Championship winning Lotus cars: Emerson Fittipaldi’s 1972 Lotus and Mario Andretti’s 1978 Lotus 79.
The 1979 Ferrari 312 T4, as driven by Jody Scheckter as he beat teammate Gilles Villeneuve to the title, and the 1982 McLaren MP4/1B driven by John Watson and Lauda make up the class.
Of course, in addition to the six historic cars from the 1970s and 1980s, all twelve classics that featured in F1 2017 are also included – and if you needed a reminder of those, there’s a full list just below!
F1 2018’s line up is completed by the two modern classics from the 2000s (2009 Brawn BGP-001 & 2003 Williams FW25) that are available in the exclusive Headline Edition of F1 2018 at launch, and later as DLC*. Missed the Headline Edition reveal? You can watch it here!
“We are delighted to bring 20 classic cars to F1 2018,” Game Director Lee Mather, said “The classics were extremely popular in last year’s game so we naturally wanted to offer our players even more choice this time. The 70s and 80s cars offer a whole new challenge and compared to the modern day cars. They look and sound incredible.”
