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.

Check out the full list of 10 cars in the March Pirelli Car Pack below and follow the jump for the official trailer. The pack will be available on Tuesday, March 6 for 560 MS points ($7) or is free for those who have already purchased the Season Pass.

      Awesome! I'd buy this pack strictly for the Country Squire and the 850 CSi, but I won't argue with the rest of the lineup. I love the variety of their monthly car packs (though I could do with less racecars and more streetcars), and the inclusion of older sportscars and daily drivers just makes me happy as hell.

      I'd like to see wider maple flares and center lock wheels on the family truckster.

      What, no whitewalls on the Country Squire? From the looks of the fender, there's a 390 under the hood.

      That Ferrari 312 PB would be worth it just on its own. So excited for this pack! The only two I could do without are the Ranult and the Weismann.

      That Corvair would make an interesting drift car.

      1966 Ford Country Squire? And they want people to pay for this?

        It's one of the key reasons I'm excited about this pack. I love the normal, everyday streetcars and older sportscars/exotics. The modern and new exotics are nice to have as well. What I could honestly do without, are all the racecars. The ones already packed into the game at launch is enough for me. Bring on the daily drivers!

      How come A/B isn't covering the 5 week layoff of the Volt? Do they think this will make certain politicians look bad so they aren't talking about it? the truth about cars is covering it if you want a real story.

        Has Jalopnik posted on it yet? Once they do, it'll be on AB a day or two later.
