Review: March Meguiar’s Car Pack
The March DLC is probably my favourite set of cars to be released, there is something for everyone here and they are all great fun to drive. Let’s take a look at them:
2013 Audi RS4 Avant
The RS4 Avant has looks great and sounds even better. Its direct-injected V8 can hit speeds of up to 174 mph. It handles brilliantly and doesn’t take any prisoners.
2013 BMW M135i
I love this BMW; although it’s not as powerful as the Audi it still packs 300hp. Despite the lesser power, it’s a smaller car and therefore feels faster. It’s also great for grabbing those near miss challenges.
2003 Ferrari Challenge Stradale
No car pack would be complete without a Ferrari would it? Thankfully we’ve got the 2003 Ferrari Challenge Stradale to play with. This car is based on the 360 Modena, the Challenge Stradale packs more horsepower and still sticks like glue to the track. I used this car more than anything during my racing.
2012 Mercedes-Benz G65 AMG
According to Mercedes-Benz, the G65 AMG is the “most powerful series-produced cross-country vehicle in the world”, which also means it costs a lot. The chances are the only way people like you me will get to drive this is in the game. As well as looking like a bit of beast it’s as powerful as one, with a twin-turbo V12 engine, this car packs a real punch.
2004 Peugeot 206 RC
If you have the Forza Rally Expansion you’ll be please to hear you are catered for to thanks to the inclusion of the Peugeot 206 RC, you can set the car up for road racing or rallying and the car dies a great job either way, small, responsive but powerful, a great drive.
1998 Nissan R390
The final car in the pack, which can also be downloaded for free as a sample is the Nissan R390, famous for taking 4 of the top 10 spots at Le Mans in 1998 this is a supercar that means business. It packs a -turbo V8 that delivers 550 horsepower and is fast, really fast.
Each car is available for 240 MS Points or you can purchase them as a pack for 400 MS points. Coinciding with the release of the March Meguiar’s Car Pack there will also be a new batch of Community Rivals Mode events to compete in. If new cars are your thing, then 400 points is a small price to pay.
