The first of the free cars is the Lykan Hypersport (above), which is a blistering fast vehicle that can reach 62mph in just 2.8 seconds. It has a top speed of 245mph and is somewhat futuristic, as it comes with a holographic dashboard display.

The Lykan Hypersport is also one of the cars featured in this week's new racing-action movie Furious 7.

“We are immensely pleased to have this awesome machine in the game and to give fans the chance to get behind the wheel of a truly amazing vehicle," Project Cars creative director Andy Tudor said in a statement. "The Lykan Hypersport represents the first of a series of free cars we'll be giving away every month as a thank you to our fans for being so patient for the launch of the game."

Details regarding the full Project Cars free DLC release schedule will come later, Tudor said.

After its third delay, the hyper-realistic racing sim is now expected to ship in "mid-May" on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. A Wii U version is also in development.

Project Cars was originally scheduled to launch in November 2014, though a month before release that date was pushed to March 2015. Then, weeks ahead of its postponed launch, the game was pushed back again, that time to April. Publisher Namco Bandai said the latest postponement was necessary to ensure that the final build matches fan expectations. You can read a full statement from the developer about the delay here.
