Six new vehicles have arrived for the release of the Alpinestars Car Pack on “Forza Horizon 2”.
The highlights of the Alpinestars Car Pack include the 1953 Chevrolet Corvette and 2015 Corvette Z06, 1991 Jeep Wagoneer, new Audi TTS Coupé and 1970 AMC Rebel “The Machine”. This month’s free car is the 1992 Bugatti EB110 SS, an elegant example of French engineering and Bugatti’s ongoing supercar legacy.
The Alpinestars Car Pack for “Forza Horizon 2” for Xbox One is available from the Xbox Live Store for £3.99.
Here’s a closer look at the cars in the pack:
2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06
This supercharged LT4 puts out 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. Straight-line speed and acceleration have always been the forte of American muscle, but the Z06 is as deft in a corner as anything out of Europe. The highways and byways of “Forza Horizon 2” are just waiting for you to leave your mark in this inevitable classic.
1953 Chevrolet Corvette
Driven by practicality, the 1953 Corvette uses mostly off-the-shelf components such as the “Blue Flame” 160hp, 235-cubic inch in-line six-cylinder engine and two-speed Powerglide transmission. The 1953 Corvette’s dramatic and bold exterior was just what the public wanted and it forever changed the course of American car history.
1991 Jeep Grand Wagoneer
The Jeep Grand Wagoneer saw few changes over its 29-year production run. It is rugged yet provides a luxurious ride and amenities that no other off-road vehicle could offer. In its wood-paneled trim, the Grand Wagoneer is reminiscent of the woodies of the past, but this rig is built to take on the rigors of any adventure its owner may choose.
2015 Audi TTS Coupé
The TTS is an elite example of VW’s MQB platform (a strategy designed to reduce costs and shorten production times). Featuring more than 300 horsepower from its turbo four-cylinder, the TTS delivers acceleration that is nearly on par with a Porsche 911 Carrera. Coupled with all-wheel-drive, it will beg you to push its considerable limits to their max.
1970 AMC Rebel “The Machine”
When it came to the muscle car market the AMC approach was unique, with performance that could give the big boys a run for their money. The distinctive ram-air hood scoop and hood-mounted tachometer contributed to the car’s performance-minded attitude. Developed in collaboration with Hurst Performance, it puts down the power via the “Twin-Grip” Positraction style differential.
May Free Car – 1992 Bugatti EB110 Super Sport
The Bugatti’s EB110 is nothing short of spectacular. Under the aluminum body penned by Marcello Gandini of Bertone is a carbon fiber chassis. What really makes the EB110 SS phenomenal is the 12-cylinder, 60-valve, quad-turbo motor that turns all four wheels and delivers a top speed of more than 200 mph.
