Let’s face it. Unless your rap career takes off and you have Mike Yager-style money to start collecting cars, you are never, ever going to drive an ALMS-spec Corvette. You’re also not going to be an elf princess, or shoot a bunch of bad guys right in the face, either, but thanks to gaming consoles like the PS3 and XBox 360*, we can all vicariously experience these things in the comfort of our own homes.
Now, thanks to car care giant Meguiar’s, there’s a new Downloadable Content (DLC) pack for Forza Motorsports 4 that lets you get behind the wheel of the #4 Corvette Racing Compuware ZR1, or as close as you’re going to get unless you started racing shifter karts at age 7 or co-found the next Facebook.
The other nine cars range from the attainable-but-unpleasant (a 1963 VW Beetle) to the obscure-and-exotic (a 2011 Aston Martin Cygnet. “Our partnership with Turn 10 Studios works well because we both share the same desire to support the enthusiasts that make this industry so diverse and this pack is a great representation of that with such a wide variety of vehicles. We both make it a point to support the people who are out there collecting, driving and customizing all kinds of cars – both in the real and digital realms,” said RJ De Vera, Meguiar’s Associate Director of PR and Event Marketing.
“The release of the new car pack is just the beginning and we look forward to building upon this relationship with many more things to come for automotive fanatics and gaming fans.” For more information on the DLC pack, point your browsinator to www.ForzaMotorsport.net
