If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times: a stellar looking racer is nothing without a killer garage of sweet rides! In the latest Hot Wheels Car Pack, we get 10 brand spankin’ new vehicles to burn up the road with!
The staff of the Xbox Wire recently posted a rundown of all the additional vehicles available for download which fans can pick up for free if they already own the car pass, otherwise it’s $9.99.
- 2013 Lamborghini Veneno
A departure from traditional Lamborghini styling is represented in the Veneno. Radical bulging lines, a wing that looks like it belongs on an LMP car, and aero on top of more aero; these are just a few of the elements that make the most expensive production car in the world unique.
- 1974 Toyota Celica GT
Before the Celica’s introduction, Toyota was perceived as a builder of dull-but-worthy cars. The Celica’s sporty appeal brought a new market and more appealing image to the Japanese automaker.
- 1939 Audi Auto Union Type D
Potentially the most expensive car to ever go to auction at Christie’s, the 1939 Audi Auto Union Type D was expected to sell for as much as $12 million. It was eventually acquired by Audi for an undisclosed price.
- 1967 Lotus Type 49
Take yourself back to what many refer to as the greatest era of open-wheel racing; the days when legendary racers Jim Clark and Graham Hill piloted the Lotus Type 49 to seemingly countless victories.
- 2013 Mazda #7 Andretti Autosport USF2000
Looking to follow the Mazda Road to Indy? A USF2000 is a formative step toward Indy Lights and possibly even a true IndyCar racing career. Greats like Dan Wheldon and Sam Hornish Jr. stepped on this rung of the open-wheel ladder, as well as rising stars like Sage Karam.
- 1952 Ferrari 375
In the early days of Formula One racing the Indianapolis 500, known then as the “500,” was part of the points chase in the F1 driver’s championship. Few European teams raced the 500 and, likewise few American drivers competed on the European circuits.
- 2015 Audi S3 Sedan
If you are going to go small, why not go “big” and spin up the new Audi S3? In the battle for market share, Audi is the last to join the other German luxury marques in the compact class. While the S3 is primarily front wheel drive, it is of course equipped with quattro and very aptly delivers power to the rear axle via a Haldex clutch.
- 1956 Ford F-100
Ford’s F100 truck series was a hit in 1953 but didn’t really hit its stride until the 1956 model – the best-looking and most powerful version of Ford’s classic workhorse. Maybe it was the new grille.
- 1973 Ford XB Falcon GT
This might be the most famous Australian car abroad. Not only has it been the star of a major motion picture set in a post-apocalyptic Outback wasteland (that would be “Mad Max”), it’s also been celebrated as the well-loved first car of Australian actor Eric Bana in the 2009 documentary film “Love the Beast.”
In addition to the vehicles listed above, fans will have access to the 1983 GMC Vandura G-1500. While a bulky van such as this might seem a bit out of place when compared to its much sleeker counterparts, the fact that it’s the same one used by the A-Team is all kinds of awesome!
The DLC is currently available on Xbox Live, as I seriously resist the urge to end this news piece with “…I pity the fool.” Oops, too late.
