Forza's September car pack brings in the pretty

33 Stradale, DB4 GT Zagato and Sprite Mk 1 keep Forza 4 ticking over. 

If there's one area in which Gran Turismo soundly trumps Forza it's in its selection of exotica - though that's an area that Turn 10's done well to address in its ongoing monthly car packs. September's could be the finest yet.

Coming courtesy of many thirsty engine's favourite tipple Pennzoil, the September Car Pack introduces a rich and Euro-centric selection of cars. Bringing the pretty is the Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale, an offensively attractive mid-engined sports car from the Italian outfit's '60s heyday.

British sportscars are represented by the iconic Austin Healey Sprite MK1 and the striking Aston Martin DB4 Zagato. But the pick of the bunch has to be a Mercedes 300 SLR modeled on the one that powered Stirling Moss to victory with Dennis 'Jenks' Jenkinson by his side in the 1955 Mille Miglia. Now if only someone would go about actually recreating those roads in a contemporary game.

There's also a couple of Vipers, but we can pretend we haven't seen those. The full list's below, and the pack's available right now.
