Here Is The Full F1 2018 Classic Car List

Codemasters has today announced the full F1 2018 classic car list, including but definitely not limited to the cars that were included in F1 2017. The list of twenty classic cars includes classics from the 1970’s and early 1980’s, as well as two new “tier 1” classic cars from the 00’s. F1 2018 was originally announced in May 2018, and Codemasters has already revealed some major changes that will affect the way you perform both on and off the track.

The F1 2018 classic car list include James Hunt’s legendary 1976 championship winning McLaren M23D and Niki Lauda’s Ferrari 312 T2, both of which featured in the hit movie ‘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.

We are delighted to bring 20 classic cars to F1 2018,” commented Lee Mather, Game Director, F1 2018. “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.
