The most recent of Grid 2‘s DLC packs, the Peak Performance Pack comes with three customized U.S. Muscle cars and three tuned European classics, all shown off in the trailer below crusiing along the Californian coast and the Miami streets.

The six cars have each been customized with unique paint jobs, body modifications and tuning upgrades to deliver maximum performance and style, with each car competing in Tier 2 competitions.

The Peak Performance Pack includes maxed out versions of the following 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.

VW Golf R – An engine upgrade boosts acceleration and top speed, a lower roll centre and lower center of gravity improves traction and its revised differential setup minimizes understeer.

BMW E30 M3 – Comes equipped with a racing clutch to reduce shift times whilst its re-mapped engine and stripped out weight improves top speed and acceleration.

BMW 1 Series M Coupe – With a huge 150 kg stripped out, this BMW’s stiffer suspension and increased camber improves traction and longer gear ratios increase top speed.

The Peak Performance Pack is not available on the PS3 and PC for $4.99, and on the Xbox 360 for 400 Microsoft Points, with all of the special edition cars available to race in the single player, split-screen and multiplayer modes.
