Yes, the last car is from The Dukes of Hazard. I only hope that they add the token horn noise every time you go off of a jump with that car.

Hope they release them for a decent price, no way I'm paying 800 points for four cars even if I do want to support Criterion after giving us a lot of free stuff.

Wow, why is everyone calling the top car the DeLorean? It's not a DeLorean. Look the Back To The Future car up and you'll see.

@ 19
The Back to the Future car was a Delorean, the first photo is just a car that resembles it so everyone is calling it that. They can't use an actual Delorean model without having to deal with copyrights and all that jazz. I'm pretty sure everyone here knows that, but calling it a Delorean is just easier

I'm gonna buy the whole pack. Even though you can buy them individually and I really just want the psuedo Delorean, I'm sure the other cars will drive great. I say psuedo-DeLorean cause its not a real one. Shame it isn't though

Does anyone know if this is included in the Ultimate Box ? I'm probably going to pick that up this weekend and wanted to know before hand if possible, otherwise I'll pick up some points as well whilst out and about....

I'd rather the Criterion boys made Black 2 or even turned their efforts to an XBLA version of Road Rash...but this will do...for now.

Just wondering if the Manhattan will have its siren noise when driving around...

IIRC, this pack will be available in about a month for The Ultimate Box...unless I was reading something else during loadup of the PS3 version (I have PS3 and 360 version, so double sting for me).
