Meet the Tushek TS 900 Racer Pro, a Slovenian hybrid hypercar making its gaming debut in GRID Legends – and thanks to a new trailer, you can see it in action alongside some in-car dancing…
The new teaser for EA and Codemaster’s upcoming racing game, entitled ‘Man. Machine’, features Ncuti Gatwa who plays the fictional character Valentin Manzi in GRID Legend’s Driven to Glory story.
Tushek is a limited-production hypercar manufacturer, with the TS 900 Racer Pro the latest addition to its burgeoning lineup.
It’s based upon the road-going TS 900 H Apex, which features two electric motors at the front working in tandom with a 4.2-litre V8 in the rear. The net result is 0-60mph in just 2.5 seconds and a top speed of 236mph thanks to 950hp and a kerbweight of only 1410kg.
Tushek claims that it’s the lightest hypercar on sale. The Racer Pro takes that same recipe but adds an aggressive track-focussed aerodynamic package to the bodywork and uprated brakes. Power is bumped up to 1,113hp. Only 12 will be produced in the real world.
We’re looking forward to trying this cutting-edge precision track tool with GRID Legend’s revised handling model, which we enjoyed in our hands-on preview.
“It was a pleasure to work with Ncuti. His portrayal of Valentin Manzi has taken our story mode, Driven to Glory, to another level, and we know his followers will enjoy racing alongside him,” said John Merchant, Brand Director at Codemasters.
How the story plays out and fits alongside the more traditional single-player career mode, event creator and online options, we’ll have to see when the game releases on 25th February for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
