With the release fast approaching next month, the teaser campaign for GRID Legends is gaining traction.
In the run-up to release, Codemasters has released a dramatic new trailer introducing us to a new driver in the story mode and a brand new hypercar never seen in a video game before.
Tushek TS 900 Racer Pro makes video game debut in Grid Legends
Making its video game debut in GRID Legends is the Tushek TS 900 Racer Pro. Limited to just 12 examples in real life, the Tushek TS 900 Racer Pro is the "world's lightest hybrid hypercar."
This insane hypercar weighs less than 1,350 kg, delivers a 1:1 power to weight ratio, and has a top speed of 236 mph. Under the bonnet is a 4.2-litre V8 and two electric motors sending power to the front wheels. Combined, this setup is good for 1,113 horsepower.
Built on a spaceframe chassis, the hybrid hypercar has a striking design with carbon-fibre body panels, aggressive aero, and a large rear wing keeping it glued to the track.
This is the first time the Austrian car manufacturer has appeared in racing game. You can see the Tushek TS 900 Racer in action in the new GRID Legends trailer. We can’t wait to take it for a spin in GRID Legends.

We’re also introduced to Valentin Manzi, one of the drivers in the Driven to Glory story mode. The lead driver of the Voltz Racing team, Manzi is played by award-winning actor Ncuti Gatwa from Netflix series Sex Education.
In the trailer, Gatwa “explores the connection between driver and car and the dedication needed to become a racing champion.” The Sex Education star poses with theTushek TS 900 to showcase its exclusive in-game livery.
“It was a pleasure to work with Ncuti. His portrayal of Valentin Manzi has taken our story mode, Driven to Glory, to another level, and we know his followers will enjoy racing alongside him,” said John Merchant, Brand Director at Codemasters. “Players will now understand what’s needed to compete in the GRID World Series and it will take more than focus and a few good moves to win.”
