Supercars Pt.1 and Brazilian Racing Legends DLC packs are set to add some rather surprising new cars to Automobilista 2’s roster.
At the time of writing, there are only five days left of 2022, but between now and 1st January 2023, nine new cars are set to be available for PC driving simulator Automobilista 2.
This is broken down into two paid-for downloadable content packs, although ‘2020-2022 Season Pass’ and ‘Premium Expansion Pack’ owners will receive the new vehicles at no extra cost.
Supercars Pt.1 DLC pack
The first set includes three supercars:
- Chevrolet Corvette C8 Z06
- McLaren Senna
- Brabham BT62
The C8 Corvette was the first mass-produced mid-engine sports car by Chevrolet, and the Z06 builds upon that with a wider track, bigger tyres and brakes, plus a glorious naturally aspirated V8. The most powerful naturally-aspirated V8 ever fitted to a production car, no less.
Meanwhile, the McLaren Senna is perhaps the ultimate track-focussed, yet still road, legal car from the Woking-based manufacturer.
Last but not least, the Brabham BT62 is a track car, another with a mid-mounted V8, but only 70 will be produced to mark the racing family’s heritage. It’s not the only car from the Australian family to be on the way, either…
Brazilian Racing Legends
Six Formula 1 cars are included in this DLC pack, all of which have been driven by Brazilians at some point in their history:
- Brabham BT49 Cosworth V8
- Brabham BT52 BMW I4 Turbo
- Lotus 98T Renault V6 Turbo
- McLaren MP4/4 Honda V6 Turbo
- McLaren MP4/5B Honda V10
- McLaren MP4/6 Honda V12
Oh goodness, we’re a bit weak at the knees with this one.
The two Brabhams are variations on cars that took Nelson Piquet to two world titles, whereas the Lotus didn’t win a title, but Ayrton Senna did say in title contention throughout 1986.
Then three McLarens. Senna and teammate Alain Prost won every race but one in 1988 using the MP4/4, a car that was also recently added to Gran Turismo 7. While the MP4/5 took Prost to the 1989 title, the B variant here was used by Senna to snatch the 1990 crown.
Finally, the MP4/6, with its incredible Honda V12, helped Senna win another title in 1991.
Release date and price
There’s no firm release date yet, other than ‘December 2022’.
The Supercars Pt.1 pack will cost $9.99/€9.99, while the Brazilian Racing Legends is priced at $14.99/€14.99. These will sit alongside the Historic Track Pack Pt1, also released this month.
As mentioned, owners of ‘2020-2022 Season Pass’ and ‘Premium Expansion Pack’ will receive all these cars at no additional cost. Any follow-up packs, such as Supercars Pt.2, will not be included in these, however, and will be additional purchases for all.
