Another month, another pack of downloadable content for Forza Motorsport 4. This month's DLC car pack, called the March Pirelli Car Pack, features 10 new cars that could potentially find their way into your Forza garage. Why call it the March Pirelli Car Pack? The team from Turn 10 Studios responsible for developing Forza Motorsport 4 says that actual tire performance data from Pirelli helped them dial in the most realistic handling possible for each car.
This month's car pack includes some true gems, most notable of which is the Aston Martin V12 Zagato. As the production version was just revealed less than a month ago and won't make its official debut until next week at the Geneva Motor Show, the car in the game is the concept from last year on which it's based, though you'd be hard pressed to tell any differences between the two.
The most peculiar car in this month's car pack is definitely the 1966 Ford Country Squire. The giant woody wagon comes from era of Country Squires that featured the Magic Door Gate, which both flipped down like a tailgate and swung open from the side. An interesting factoid, though Turn 10 says it doesn't make a difference in the game.
We're also excited to try the Ultima GTR, versions of which have set all sorts of world records related to speed and quickness. The version in the game is less powerful than those headline-makers, being powered by a Corvette engine producing 565 horsepower, but it still weighs just 2,200 lbs.
