Codemasters has unveiled the GRID 2 ‘Peak Performance Pack’ where each vehicle has been customised with unique paint jobs, body mods and tuning upgrades, placing each car in Tier 2 competitions.
Here’s the line-up:
North American Cars
Dodge Charger RT – Stiffer suspension, wider wheels and aggressive camber improve traction whilst additional power under the bonnet, an extra gear and stripped out weight improve top speed and acceleration.
Ford Mustang Mach 1 Twister Special – Improved aerodynamics reduce drag, bigger brakes reducing braking distances and engine improvements increase acceleration and top speed.
Chevrolet Camaro Z28 RS SS 1970 – A re-mapped engine adds more horsepower and torque, reduced mass and inertias give the car more responsive steering and a lower centre of mass and stiffer suspension improves traction and reduces body roll.
BMW E30 M3 – Comes equipped with a racing clutch to reduce shift times whilst it’s re-mapped engine and stripped out weight improves top speed and acceleration.
BMW 1 Series M Coupe – With a huge 150kg stripped out, this BMW’s stiffer suspension and increased camber improves traction and longer gear ratios increase top speed.
VW Golf R – An engine upgrade boosts acceleration and top speed, a lower roll centre and lower centre of gravity improves traction and its revised differential setup minimises understeer.
The Peak Performance Pack is now available for Xbox 360 for 400 Microsoft Points and PC for (around R40) £3.19 / $4.99 / €3.99 via Steam. The pack will be available on PlayStation 3 the next time the store updates for (around R40) £3.19 / $4.99 / €3.99.
