“Forza Motorsport 4” March Pirelli Car Pack Brings Ten New High-Performance Rides to “Forza” Fans.
The newest “Forza Motorsport 4” car pack will be available for download starting Tuesday, March 6 on Xbox LIVE Marketplace, adding a new crop of incredible cars for “Forza” players to collect, drive, and customize. Available for 560 Microsoft Points, the March Pirelli Car Pack will feature ten cars that run the gamut from legendary Ferrari racing models to pure American Muscle, family cruisers to incredibly quick kit cars. With realistic handling supported by “Forza Motorsport’s” technical partnership with world-renowned tire manufacturer Pirelli, these ten cars are a must-own for “Forza Motorsport 4” fans. The March Pirelli Car Pack features 10 vehicles prepped and polished for the avid car aficionado:
• 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.
All of the cars in the March Pirelli Car Pack feature the innovative and incredibly realistic handling that “Forza Motorsport 4” fans have come to expect. As part of a technical partnership between Pirelli and “Forza Motorsport,” Pirelli shared tire performance data as well as the company’s cutting-edge research into tire performance, data that “Forza Motorsport 4” developers imported directly into the game during development. The result is the most realistic tire physics ever seen in a console racing game and an automotive experience that can’t be found anywhere else.
