Just a week or so off its Fast and Furious stand-alone content unveiling, Microsoft has announced the Forza Horizon 2 Rockstar Energy Car Pack has raced onto Xbox One. The Rockstar Energy Car Pack includes five cars.
Also available for Xbox One owners today is an all-new free downloadable car for the month of March.
Since everyone can grab the free car, let’s start with that. The 2001 Acura Integra Type-R is
a front-wheel drive beauty whose 1.8-liter engine that screams when the VTEC kicks in. The Integra Type-R in Forza Horizon 2, like its real-world counterpart, is a blank slate for modification.
To get the five cars in the Forza Horizon 2 Rockstar Energy Car Pack, you’ll have to pony up $5. But at $1 per car, that’s not a lot to ask.
First up is the 2014 Volkswagen Beetle GRC, which was debuted by racer Tanner Foust via his Red Bull Global Rallycross Beetle. With 540 horsepower and all-wheel-drive, this car can really get going — from 0-60 in just over two seconds, to be precise.
The 2015 Subaru WRX STI is a car for all occasions, but by “occasions” we mean road racing, drag racing or cruising around the in-game world. The 1996 BMW 850CSi, conversely, is the closest thing to an M8 ever developed by BMW, with a 5.6-liter V12 reshaped bumpers, improved suspension and stability control. Hardly an everyday experience.
Rounding things out are the 2015 Jaguar XFR-S, with its 550-horsepower V8, and the 1970 Volkswagen #1107 Desert Dingo Racing Stock Bug, which was the first class-11 Beetle to ever attempt the legendary Baja 1000 off-road race. It never finished, but it’s still sweet to drive the fabled vehicle in digital form.
The Forza Horizon 2 Rockstar Energy Car Pack is available for download starting today.
