Release Date: 30/09/2014

The latest car pack for Forza Horizon 2 has been released, bringing six new cars to the open-world racing game on the Xbox One.

Rounding off the title's 'Car Pass' season pass programme, the 'Rockstar Energy Car Pack' is headlined by the racing game debut of the Volkswagen Beetle GRC, a 540 horsepower racing car that stunt driver and Top Gear USA presenter Tanner Foust will drive in this year's Global RallyCross Championship.

Other all-new-to-Forza cars featured in the Rockstar Energy DLC are the latest Subaru WRX STI model, along with the Volkswagen Beetle fielded by Desert Dingo Racing in the 'stock' class of the Baja 1000 rally raid event.

Interestingly, the statement on the official Forza Motorsport website also revealed that "any future car packs for Forza Horizon 2…will be available to purchase individually for $5 each", all but confirming the racing game will be receiving more content in the near future.

All the cars featured into Rockstar Energy Car Pack (which retails for £2.49 on the Xbox Games Store, or free if you've purchased Horizon 2's Car Pass) have been listed below:

  • 1970 Volkswagen Desert Dingo Racing Stock Beetle – A mostly-stock Volkswagen Beetle that's entered into one of the toughest motorsports events in the world. Make of that what you will…
  • 1996 BMW 850CSi – Radical styling. Power from a V12 loosely related to the McLaren F1's. Huge tuning potential. Yeah, this one's worth having a look at.
  • 2001 Acura Integra Type R – Cited by many to be one of the greatest front-wheel drive performance cars of all time. Also the free car in the Rockstar Energy Pack.
  • 2014 Volkswagen Beetle GRC – You know how bonkers the MG Metro 6R4 is? Well, this Beetle GRC is on that level of insanity. You have been warned…
  • 2015 Jaguar XFR-S – A fine, supercharged alternative to all the German super saloons in the game. Especially in ultra-garish 'French Racing Blue'.
  • 2015 Subaru WRX STi – It may have dropped the 'Impreza' name, but don't worry: this is still a proud-and-proper, old school Scooby sports saloon.
