Forza Motorsport 4's garage gets a little busier next week with the arrival of 10 new cars via DLC, Microsoft has announced.
The March Pirelli Car Pack, due out on 6th March priced at 560 Points, includes the following motors, with accompanying blurbs courtesy of the game's official site:
- 2011 Aston Martin V12 Zagato (Villa d'Este): Built to honor the 50th anniversary of the Aston Martin DB4GT Zagato, Aston Martin designed this updated Zagato full of the latest automotive tech. Featuring elegant stylistic and performance flourishes throughout, the Zagato will be a cherished addition to any "Forza Motorsport 4" fan's garage.
- 1971 Ferrari #2 Ferrari Automobili 312 P: With its wedge-scoop design and the unmistakable post-mounted rear-view mirror, the 1971 Ferrari #2 Ferrari Automobili 312 P is a unique piece of race craft, one that was piloted by all-time greats like Jacky Ickx and Mario Andretti.
- 2012 Ultima GTR: The Ultima GTR is one of the world's fastest accelerating cars-and you can build one for yourself in your own garage. This kit car's high performance comes from its 7.0 liter engine--which manages an astonishing 565 hp--and a very light frame.
- 1969 Chevrolet Nova SS 396: The '69 Nova-which features a big 6.5 liter, 375 horsepower V8 engine pushing a relatively light 3,400 pounds of steel--is pure American Muscle from headlight to that unmistakable Nova nameplate.
- 1995 BMW 850CSi: Some call the 850CSi the closest BMW ever got to making an actual M8 model. It's a high-tech bit of German muscle that certainly won't disappoint BMW fans. It even made its way into the heralded BMW Art Car program when American artist David Hockney added a bold pop art-inspired print to an 850CSi; the fourteenth BMW model to be honored in this way.
- 1986 Alfa Romeo GTV-6: Sporting bodywork penned by Giorgetto Giugiaro from Italdesign-Giugiaro, the Alfa Romeo GTV6 was heralded by automotive journalists for excellent handling, outstanding brakes, and the SOHC V6 2.5 liter engine that made for a thoroughly fun driving experience.
- 1969 Chevrolet Corvair Monza: The Monza coupe was a more powerful version of the standard Corvair compact. The Corvair's unique rear-mounted air-cooled engine led to some interesting stylistic choices, including a lower overall profile and the absence of a front grille, making it a handsome collector's item for Chevy enthusiasts and muscle car fans alike.
- 2010 Renault Clio RS: A 2.0 liter 16-valve engine powers the Clio RS; resulting in a zippy ride that perfectly complements the hatchback's aggressive trim. Good fuel consumption numbers and a relatively affordable price make the Clio RS an attractive value for those who are looking for some zip in their day-to-day commute without having to break the bank.
- 1966 Ford Country Squire: The Ford Country Squire is mid-60s family style personified. The Squire's classic wide body construction and its confident gait on the track should make it a favorite of those looking for something different in "Forza Motorsport 4" on the track, or looking for a new type of artistic palette when playing with the livery editor.
- 2011 Wiesmann GT MF5: The Wiesmann brothers' coupes and roadsters are "manufaktur der individualisten," and truly it takes an individualist to fully appreciate their unique creations. Combining retro proportions with state-of-the-art BMW-sourced running gear, the GT MF5 is a sporting coupe that certainly means business.
To coincide with DLC release, developer Turn 10 is launching a fresh batch of Community Monthly Rivals Mode events, including one starring the aforementioned 2011 Aston Martin. Every week, 100 players who've set a leaderboard time will be randomly selected and rewarded with a unicorn car.
