Click above for image gallery of the Burnout Paradise Legendary Cars DLC

Owners of Burnout Paradise for the Xbox 360 should mark February 19th on their calendars. That's the day their little driving game becomes infinitely cooler with the release of the Legendary Cars pack as downloadable content. Four cars will be available for purchase separately or in a bundle. The one most eagerly anticipated is the Jansen 88 Special, a clever nod to the DeLorean used in Back to the Future replete with wheels that turn under the car for hover mode. There's also the Manhattan Spirit that's inspired by the Ecto 1 in Ghostbusters, the Carson Nighthawk that owes KITT a few royalty checks and the Cavalry Bootlegger that pays homage to the original General Lee. Unfortunately, Criterion Games knows which car will be the most popular, and has priced the Jansen 88 Special at $3.99 / 320 credits versus $1.99 / 160 credits for the other three. Or you could save some Microsoft money and buy the whole bundle for $7.99 / 600 credits.

UPDATE: Video of gameplay after the jump.

      I just got the ultimate package for PC, awesome game this is, performs well and online is excellent... I love some of the car designs (all based on real cars) in fact if I had money ... I'd go design me a couple cars based on game and have them made...

      its 8 bucks for kitt, the general lee, a dmc12 and watever that other one is supposed to be.
      I'm getting it especially for the flying dmc12.

        The other one is Ecto1 from Ghostbusters. And thats the other beef. They're not the 'actual' cars, they're Burnout-universe spin offs.

      Everything else has been free, and now they're charging for theme-based cars?
        • 5 Years Ago
        They have given soo much free content over the past year, they deserve some money for their efforts.
      • 5 Years Ago
      no release date for the ps3?
      • 5 Years Ago
      .......Interesting.

      Wow, how not to get sued. Didn't know they charge for cars now on videogames.

        Uhh...

        Forza 2 has been selling car packs for 18 months now. Project Gotham Racing 3 has paid-for DLC car packs. PGR4 does too. Need for Speed Undercover lets you pay 800 MS points to unlock the "exclusive" cars from the collector's edition. GRID has extra cars in an 800 point pack. Test Drive Unlimited has a bunch of premium car packs. Shall I go on?

        We're just incredibly lucky they didn't charge for the first few major upgrades to this game. I'd rather have free huge patches and paid-for trinkets than get left behind everyone else because I don't feel like shelling out $15 every time they add a new feature that you need to play multiplayer.

      I'm liking that KITT, although it looks more like a modern Camaro than anything.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Just give me a Veyron and nothing but 35 mile straight tracks.
      • 5 Years Ago
      That DeLorean is pretty sweet lol.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I wish Turn-10 would come out with some more cars for Forza 2 right now...
