SHIFT 2 DLC adds classic cars, tracks

Monza mash.

Six classic racetracks and a fleet of vintage cars are heading for SHIFT 2: Unleashed in new DLC due out on 26th April.

The Legends packs, which will set you back 800 Microsoft Points or £7.99 on PlayStation Network, includes 13 vehicles from the '60 and '70s, as well as a custom Need For Speed Porsche 911.

Here's the full roster of new wheels on offer:

  • Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA (1965)
  • Austin Mini Cooper S (1965)
  • BMW 3.0 CSL Gr. 5 (1975)
  • Ford Capri RS3100 Gr.4 (1974)
  • Ford Escort Mk1 RS1600 (1971)
  • Ford GT40 Mk.I (1965)
  • Ford Lotus Cortina (1963)
  • Jaguar E-Type Lightweight (1963)
  • Nissan Fairlady 240ZG (S30) (1971)
  • Nissan Skyline 2000GT-R (C10) (1972)
  • Porsche 911 Carrera RSR 3.0 (1974)
  • Porsche 914/6 GT (1970)
  • SHELBY COBRA "DAYTONA" COUPE® (1965)
  • Team Need For Speed Porsche 911 Carrera RSR 3.0

You can hoon that lot around six new vintage tracks:

  • Dijon-Prenois (1972)
  • Hockenheim (1982)
  • Monza (1958)
  • Rouen-Les-Essarts GP (1966)
  • Rouen-Les-Essarts Short (1952)
  • Silverstone (1975)

There's no mention of a PC release for the pack, but we're chasing publisher EA now for clarification.

SHIFT 2: Unleashed launched last month on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, clocking an impressive 8/10 from Eurogamer's Simon Parkin.

"Many will consider the game a third place to Forza and Gran Turismo's slicker, more exacting odes to motor racing," he wrote, "but in terms of its social features, SHIFT 2 leads the pack, even if Autolog really is a debt owed to the Need for Speed heritage it is so eager to pull away from."
