Four cars were teased on Monday to be coming to GRID Legends at some point, a clue provided that “the night is darkest just before the dawn.”
There were signs of life from GRID Legends on Monday (10th October 2022) as the title’s various social media accounts posted four teaser images with the caption “The night is darkest just before the dawn”.
We haven’t had any updates on GRID Legends since it was announced that it would be coming to EA Play in conjunction with their v3.3 update. That was back in August. Now in October, there are four images of cars that are not currently in the game, but are likely coming at some point soon.
We believe that the top left image is a Bentley Continental GT3, the top right is a 2003 Bentley Speed 8, the bottom left is a BMW V12 LMR, and while the smaller one in the bottom right might look similar to a Nissan Skyline, it’s actually an Autozam AZ-1.
Bentley Continental GT3
With a winning pedigree across the world, the Bentley Continental GT3 race car is currently in the midst of its fourth year of competition, already having more than 50 wins and 125 podiums secured over the last three seasons globally.
The Bentley Continental GT3 comes in with a 4.0-litre direct injection twin-turbo V8 engine, boasting 550bhp and as it would suggest, it races together against others in GT3 classification racing.
2003 Bentley Speed 8
An overall 24 Hours of Le Mans winning entry, this Bentley Speed 8 joined the Prototype grid back in 2001 and won the event in 2003, driven that day by Rinaldo Capello, Tom Kristensen and Guy Smith. It was actually a 1-2 finish for the team with their No. 8 entry finishing second, two laps behind.
This prototype had specifications of having a 4.0-litre V8 engine with 600bhp.
BMW V12 LMR
Sticking with Le Mans and their Prototype cars, this BMW V12 LMR is from a slightly earlier time, from 1999 and 2000. In 1999, the trio of Yannick Dalmas, Pierluigi Martini and Joachim Winkelhock in the No. 15 entry drove their way to an overall win in that year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans.
The car contains a 5.99-litre V12 engine that produced up to 590bhp.
Probably the most out of place in the announcement is the Autozam AZ-1. Unlike the other three racing beasts, this sports coupe was brought into the world from 1992 to 1994 under both Mazda and Suzuki, this is what you’d call a unique and extremely tiny car.
We don’t know when an announcement is expected or if there are any other updates that are coming alongside, but if anything happens to drop, we’ll keep you updated. GRID Legends is currently $59.99 or free if you have a subscription to EA Play.
