Codemasters and Deep Silver announced today that F1 fans will receive two legendary classic cars with the F1 2018 Headline Edition.

The following trailer showcases the championship-winning 2009 Brawn BGP-001 (as driven by that year’s F1 World Champion Jenson Button and his teammate Rubens Barrichello), and the 2003 Williams FW25, of Juan Pablo Montoya and Ralf Schumacher.

Both of these cars will feature in the ‘Headline Edition’ of F1 2018, and will also be available as DLC at a later date after launch.

According to Paul Jeal, Franchise Director for Formula 1 at Codemasters:

[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]“The inclusion of classic cars in last year’s game was a huge hit with our players and fans of the sport so we wanted to build on that with the inclusion of more classics in F1 2018. The Brawn is without doubt the most requested classic car by our passionate F1 community, so we are delighted to be bringing it to the game. To win both the drivers’ and constructors’ World Championships in your only season is a phenomenal achievement and made the Brawn instantly iconic, and not only that but it looks gorgeous too,” continued Paul. “The 2003 Williams was also a fantastic car, which got better as the season went on. Juan Pablo Montoya went on to record 8 podiums in a row, so I’m sure players will relish the opportunity to get behind the wheel of this car too.”[/testimonials]

The game will come out for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on August 24.
