A couple of new cars power slide into DiRT Rally 2.0

DiRT Rally 2.0 is one of the best racing games of this year. The visuals, handling, and general sense of realism are absolutely top notch (you can check out our review here). The game’s developer, Codemasters, has been doing a good job of continually updating the game and adding new content in the form of new rallies as well as additional cars. Well, the latest vehicles to enter the fray are the Seat Ibiza Kitcar and Peugeot 306 Maxi. If you’re not familiar with these cars, you can check out all the salient details and a short video for each below –

Seat Ibiza Kitcar

Homologated in 1996, the Seat Ibiza Kit Car was highly successful in the F2 class, and was the most successful car of its type internationally, winning the Rally Cup F2 in 96, 97 and 99. Being a kit car it relied on its light weight and punchy 2.0L engine, with drivers having to control its aggressive torque-steer.

 

  • Max Power: 270 bhp
  • Max Weight: 960 kg
  • Engine: 1994 cc, 4 cylinders, Naturally-Aspirated
  • Gearbox: 6 Speed – Manual Sequential
  • Drivetrain: FWD

 

Peugeot 306 Maxi

Introduced in 1995, the Peugeot 306 Maxi is a front wheel drive monster. It’s important to be wary of torque-steer in this car, with the 1998cc engine sending all 280hp to the front wheels. this car was and still is a common sight in the French rally scene.

 

  • Max Power: 300 bhp
  • Max Weight: 960 kg
  • Engine: 1998 cc, 4 cylinders, naturally-Aspirated
  • Gearbox: 6 Speed – Manual Sequential
  • Drivetrain: FWD

Each of these vehicles is available now from the Xbox Store for $1.49 each or as part of the DiRT Rally 2.0 Deluxe Content Pack 2.0 which includes all the content that will be released as part of seasons three and four for the game.
