Shift 2: Unleashed Limited Edition treats

Three cars, 40 career events.

Yes! A Lamborghini! That's one of three treats given to people ordering the new Limited Edition of Shift 2: Unleashed.

Specifically, a sexy grey Lamborghini Murcielago LP640. The other cars are a Nissan Silva Spec R Aero (S15) and an Alfa Romeo Giulietta QV. Check them out in the screenshot gallery below.

The Limited Edition also grants access to 40 career events, such as old cars versus their new counterparts, plus manufacturer showdowns.

Shift 2: Unleashed represents the simulation portion of EA's Need for Speed racing menu. Criterion's fantastic Hot Pursuit represents the arcade portion.

The games will share more than a brand, however, as Shift 2: Unleashed opts to use Hot Pursuit's networked competition stoker Autolog.
