2D Boxshot Wizard v1.1

It must be said I had a little niggling doubt about there being any more car packs after last week’s massive Porsche expansion was released.  My fears were groundless however, as Turn10 have just announced the Meguiar’s Car Pack, which is due on June 5th for the usual 560 points, and will contain the usual ten cars.

After the break is the full… er, breakdown.  And also the full list of cars included in the Porsche pack.

2011 Chevrolet Corvette Racing ZR1

This ALMS spec racer should be pretty good.  But then, it’s in a class where pretty good may not cut it.

1959 BMW 507

This beautiful roadster would look hilarious lined up against the ’59 Caddy.  Just sayin’.

1940 Ford De Luxe Coupe

One of the most popular basis for hotrods, but a real pile of crap by today’s standards, the classy ’40 Ford will be worth a laugh or five on the track.

2011 Aston Martin Cygnet

The car the EU made Aston build.  Based on an unremarkable Toyota, the Cygnet’s only real distinction is its awful styling and maybe its complete pointlessness.

1958 MGA Twin Cam

Classic British motoring here.  The A should look good parked next to my Austin Healey and Jag E-type.

1997 Maserati Ghibli Cup

Maserati were well into their phase of designing cars that looked a decade or more out of date and then putting in illogically powerful engines that would definitely explode very soon after purchase.  So you could say that I strongly approve.

2012 AMG C63 Black

Another potent Merc that can’t decide if it’s a race car or a road car.

1987 RUF CTR Yellowbird

The fans have been crying out for this one.  The insanely powerful Yellowbird dominated its competition in the ’80s and is possibly the most dangerous place a person could sit.

1992 Toyota Celica GT-FOUR RC ST185

Another ’90s turbo sack.  This rally homologation special is mostly known for not being quite as good as the road-going versions of the competition from Subaru and Mitsubishi.  For some reason I really like this sort of thing.

1963 Volkswagen Beetle

I suppose it was only a matter of time.  The original Beetle actually has a long history of motorsport success, due mostly to being extremely common and quite reliable.

Check out the official site for their descriptions and some screenshots.

On the 22nd, the Porsche expansion released, with 30 cars, 20 new events, and some 250 points worth of new achievements.  At a not-insignificant 1600 points, it’d want to be pretty hefty, of course.  Forza VIPs pay only 1200 points.  Which is still a metric craptonne.
