Garage

URANO eSports takes part in different racing series with different racing cars. You can find a selection of our racing cars below. Our liveries were designed by Juan Diego Sanchez Martinez from iLiveries.com.

AUDI R8 LMS GT3

The Audi R8 LMS GT3 ranks among the most successful GT3 cars with more than 200 international wins in events such as the Bathurst 12 Hours and Nürburgring 24 Hours, along with back-to-back championships in the 2014 and 2015 Blancpain Endurance and Blancpain GT Series. In contrast to its all-wheel drive road going version, the R8 LMS GT3 is built by Audi Sport and quattro GmbH to comply with the rear wheel drive only GT3 regulations. However, the superb balance and impressive power to weight ratio of the R8 LMS GT3 have made it a winner in virtually every series in which it's competed.

BMW M8 GTE

The twin-turbo, V8 powered beast joins the already impressive lineup of GTE cars in iRacing. With over 500 bhp, the flagship racing car from BMW competes around the world in series including the FIA World Endurance Championship and the IMSA Weathertech SportsCar Championship. In iRacing, you will see the M8 in the multiclass IMSA Series as well as the iRacing Le Mans and iRacing Le Mans Endurance series.

BMW Z4 GT3

The BMW Z4 GT3 replaces the BMW M3 which served as the platform for BMW Motorsport’s considerable success in the FIA GT European Championship and the American Le Mans Series. Although it is based on the popular BMW Z4 roadster, the Z4 GT3 is equipped with a 4.4 liter, aluminum block V8 rather than the inline 6 found in the road-going version. The Z4 GT3 boasts a sophisticated aerodynamic package including a front splitter, front fender winglets, rear diffuser and double deck rear wing constructed of carbon fiber reinforced plastic while beneath the bodywork the chassis features spring struts in low friction bearings, tubular stabilizer with adjusting blades (front), trailing link suspension (rear) and adjustable tubular stabilizer.

FERRARI 488 GT3

The Ferrari 488 GT3 race car is powered by a twin-turbo, 3.9L, V8 engine that produces over 550 horsepower. Raced in multiple series around the world including the IMSA Weathertech Series, Blancpain GT and Endurance and Pirelli World Challenge. This classic mid-engine car from Ferrari is known for incredibly well balanced handling, superb brakes and raw power - nothing else sounds quite like a Ferrari V8 engine at full throttle.

FERRARI 488 GTE

With more than 100 wins - including victories in the 12 Hours of Sebring and the 24 Hours of Le Mans - to its credit, the Ferrari 458 GTE was the proverbial tough act to follow. But the Ferrari 488 GTE was more than equal to the task, securing the 2016 World Endurance Cup for GT Manufacturers in its debut season with victories at Silverstone, Spa and the Nürburgring, as well as the 19th running of Petit Le Mans. Designed to capitalize on the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile's new "mid-engine-friendly" aerodynamic regulations, the Ferrari 488 boasted a 50% increase in downforce over its predecessor thanks to a new front double splitter, exhaust-blown diffuser and underbody vortex generators; all with significantly reduced drag compared to the Ferrari 458. Coupled with a four liter, twin turbocharged V8 producing an estimated 490 horsepower and 479 ft/lb of torque, the Ferrari 488 GTE's purposeful but sensuous shape makes it one of the world's most potent GT race cars.

FORD GTE

Although it was always intended to take its place among the world's most desirable ultra-high performance sports cars, make no mistake that the third generation Ford GT was conceived, designed and built with one priority in mind: win the 24 Hours of Le Mans on the 50th anniversary of Ford's fabled victory at le Sarthe in 1966. The result is a masterpiece in design, echoing the iconic shape of the Ford GT that Bruce McLaren and Chris Amon piloted to victory in the "ronde infernal" while taking every possible advantage of the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile's regulations to create another Le Mans winner. With a miniscule frontal area and dramatic "flying buttresses" the Ford GT cuts through the air on the Mulsanne Straightaway like the proverbial knife through butter - with plenty of of help from a 3.6 liter, twin turbo Ecoboost V6 engine producing 530 horsepower and 494 ft-lb torque. The combination delivered a dramatic win at Le Mans in 2016 in the car's inaugural campaign, along with several other victories in World Endurance Cup and IMSA competition, indelibly stamping the Ford GT as worthy successor to its legendary namesake.

MCLAREN MP4-12C GT3

Based on the groundbreaking McLaren MP4-12C road car, the McLaren MP4-12C GT3 marries Formula 1 and innovative road-car technology to create a state-of-the-art racing sports car. The McLaren MP4-12C GT3 utilizes the same carbon MonoCell chassis as the 12C road car, along its 3.8 liter McLaren V8 twin turbo M838T engine, albeit detuned to 500 bhp in accordance with FIA regulations. The 12C GT3 features a six speed Ricardo gearbox and an aero package developed in McLaren’s F1 simulator together with the engine calibration, power steering, spring rates, weight distribution, gear ratios and differential settings. The MP4-12C GT3 made its competition debut in the British GT Championship at Spa-Francorchamps in July, 2012 and, with 25 models in the hands of a number of private teams, went on to score 19 victories across Europe in a variety of championships that same season, including FIA GT1 World, Blancpain Endurance Series and Avon Tyres British GT as well as the 24 Hours of Barcelona.

PORSCHE 911 GT3 Cup (991)

Raced in more than 20 race series around the world, including the Porsche GT3 Cup in the United States and the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup in support of the FIA Formula One World Championship, the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup is the world's most produced and most used GT race car. As such the Porsche GT3 Cup has been the vehicle that launched the professional careers of sports car champions like Sven Müller, Philipp Eng, Richard Westbrook, René Rast, Nicki Thiim, Earl Bamber and Jörg Bergmeister. With its potent, aluminum 4 liter flat 6 installed in the rear of its 1200 kg chassis, the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup is a demanding car to master, but one which delivers ample rewards to those who do.

PORSCHE 911 RSR

The first mid-engine Porsche 911 is the RSR and it features a 4.0 liter, normally aspirated engine that produces 510 hp. Purpose built for racing, the car is raced worldwide in the LM-GTE category in series including IMSA, WEC and Le Mans. The 911 RSR is Porsche through and through. With its aggressive styling cues and familiar silhouette, the flat-6 six engine literally screams at you when you accelerate out of corners. Weighing in at a mere 1,243 kg (2,740 lbs), the RSR is a well-balanced race car with massive brakes for unrivaled stopping power and a newly designed 6-speed sequential gearbox that allows for lightning changes up and down through the gears.
