Race Driver: GRID
New GRID DLC adds 100G and 8 new cars
Written By

Codemasters announced the full details of Race Driver: GRID's first wave of downloadable content today. The 8-Ball Pack will go on sale some time this autumn for a price which is yet to be announced.

The cars which will be included are: McLaren F1 GTR, TVR Cerbera Speed 12, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X, Honda S2000, Nissan GT-R (S-G2008), Volkswagen Nardo and the Pontiac Firebird Trans AM. Most notably, the Volvo C30 will slot into the touring car class which currently only has two vehicles to choose from. 

There will be four new achievements, each worth 25G:

Jack of All Trades: Win an online race in each of the 8 Ball pack cars

Drift Master: Achieve a 99x combo in the Honda S2000

Gas Guzzler: Clock up over 250 miles in your favourite 8 Ball pack car

Clean Passing: Win a clean race in an 8 Ball Pack car from last position 

You'll notice that the achievements are all tied to the DLC, so if you want to boost your GRID total to 1100 then you're probably going to have to spend some cash.

Might be a reason to get back into this game. I played it a lot online at one point but seem to have abandoned it for COD4 once again. If its not too pricey it might be worth picking up and getting back into the online dogfights :p

@11: Not every word needs capitals, watch a 5 year old type and you'll see how to do it properly.

@13: I think they should, but they probably think "800 + 800 = Chaching!" (I'm sure it'll be 800)

I wonder if Clean Passing is online or single player.....
These Achievements look a little boring though, but I guess there is only so much you can do with a racing game.

@J1MmY295: Don't insult another user's use of the English language when yours isn't perfect either.

An ellipse (...) should never need five periods, and as for this:

"These Achievements look a little boring though, but I guess there is only so much you can do with a racing game."

There's no need for both "though" and "but", or the comma for that matter.

Practice what you preach, please. When you insult someone while messing up in the process, you end up looking like a complete ass.

Holy shit 99x drift that is a bit outrageous, because the 50x drift king ach. is tense as hell and it takes like an uber long time to do but the extra cars will be nice

I'm so excited for these, and TBH i was not expecting any DLC from codemasters, but hey i'm not complaining.

That 99x looks near impossible, but i'll settle for 75G and 8 sexy new cars :).

also a x99 combo is very easy but depends on how well the s2000 handles
