The V8 engine may be a roaring beast of controlled explosions and steel that is slowly going extinct as we start focus on preserving our environment, but there’s no such limit for the mighty octane beast when it comes to digital replicas. Cars aren’t just a way to get from point A to point B, they’re a way of life for many.
And for many more of us, that passion for intense speed came as a result of tuning into Top Gear on a weekly basis. While the series has had some, er, issues over the last year that saw its original trio of presenters depart, the show is coming back later this year with a brand new team of hosts that includes Chris Evans (Not the Captain America bloke), Sabine Schmitz, Eddie Jordan, Rory Reif, Matt LeBlanc and Chris Harris. And that Stig fella.
And what better way to celebrate the return of the best motoring show, than with another tam-up with Forza Motorsport? Releasing later today, you’ll be able to pick up a new Top Gear pack of cars in Forza Motorsport 6. Here’s the full press release detailing it, copied and pasted below while I try and get the Stig to hand me back my golden cock:
Releasing today, the Top Gear Car Pack for “Forza Motorsport 6” builds on the tradition of amazing Top Gear content in the “Forza Motorsport” franchise, bringing seven brand new cars exclusively to the game. As the BBC prepares the next season of the legendary television series debuting in May, we’re
giving fans a taste of what to expect in the form of seven awesome new rides, all hand-picked by the editors at Top Gear. Whether it’s a limited production car, the latest top-of-the-line series, or simply preposterous horsepower numbers, the cars of the Top Gear Car Pack all offer something special. In addition to the cars themselves, we’re also kicking off a new series of Top Gear Rivals events where players will be able to challenge one another and Top Gear editors to see who knows these cars best.
For the next three months, look for new Top Gear events each month in the Community Monthly channels of Rivals in “Forza Motorsport 6.”
