When it comes to driving some of the coolest and most unique cars on the planet, video games are as close as most of us are going to get. This has led a lot of game makers to “debut” cars in games so that the world at large can have a chance to check them out in an environment that is familiar to them. This has been going on for years with games like Forza Motorsports 5 debuting the McLaren P1 and Forza Horizon 2 coming to market with the new Lamborghini Huracán. Now Spania has piped up and said that the new Playstation 4 game, DriveClub, will come with the GTA Spano.

If you are a fan of the Spanish car company that creates the GTA Spano, DriveClub may be your only chance to ever even see one as production was limited to only 99 examples of this supercar. With an 8.3-liter, V-10 engine that makes 900 horsepower, we expect this to be one of the fastest cars in the whole game. The car will hit 60 mph from a stop in less than three seconds and it has a top speed of 230 mph. Yeah, it is a really quick machine.

DriveClub is next in what appears to a large wave of racing games that focus on the love of cars and the social side of car ownership. DriveClub sees racers team up in large car clubs to race, compete and otherwise enjoy bombing around a beautiful landscape. The game is not set up to have players blast through the open countryside, though; if that is more of what you are after, you might want to wait for the upcoming Ubisoft game The Crew.

You can pick up your copy of the new game on October 7, 2014 here in the States. Note, it is only available for the Playstation 4 gaming console. Sorry Xbox and PC fans.

With a limited-produciton supercar like the GTA Spano, using a video game can be a great way to let people see, experience and become familiar with the machine. It helps to build a love and desire for a piece of gasoline-powered adrenaline that they normally would have no real connection or contact with.

Having a car like this in a video game helps to boost the excitement that comes from cool cars. It can help turn a normal kid into a car-loving hooligan.
