GRID 8 Ball DLC arrives today

New cars, modes, Achievements.

Codemasters has raced new cars out for Race Driver: GRID on Xbox 360 and PS3.

The 8 Ball pack, which we first heard about in September, costs 800 Microsoft Points (GBP 6.80 / EUR 9.60) on Xbox Live, or GBP 6.29 / EUR 7.99 on the PlayStation Store, which uses real money and not some invented currency that might as well be twigs and biscuits.

Inside the 8 Ball pack is an array of purring motors: McLaren F1 GTR, TVR Cerbera Speed 12, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X, Honda S2000, Nissan GT-R (S-G2008), VW Nardo, Pontiac Firebird Trans AM and Volvo C30.

We've parked these in a handy Race Driver: GRID - 8 Ball DLC garage-gallery for you to peruse.

On top of those are a couple of multiplayer modes to freshen things up, and 100 extra Gamerpoints - four Achievements - for Xbox 360 owners.

These are awarded for winning an online race in each of the new cars, achieving a 99x combo in a Honda S2000, clocking up over 250 miles in one the 8 Ball vehicles, or winning a clean race by coming from behind in an 8 Ball car.
