New Mazda MX-5 is latest free download in Forza Horizon 2

Latest generation of Mazda’s iconic sports car is now available in the open-world racing game

As is tradition these days, the first taste most people will get of an all-new car is through the medium of videogames, as the Mk4 Mazda MX-5 becomes the latest downloadable vehicle for Forza Horizon 2.

Turn 10’s huge open-world driving game lets gamers drive a huge cross-section of modern and classic performance vehicles, and some versions of Mazda’s MX-5 are already available in the game’s virtual garage.

The latest car lands as part of a dedicated Mazda MX-5 car pack. As well as the all-new car, the pack also includes the 2010 MX-5 Super20 SEMA concept car, an original 1990 MX-5 and the turbocharged 2005 Mazdaspeed MX-5 sold in the United States.

As part of a Time Trials Rivals Contest, Forza Horizon 2 players can also compete to win a real MX-5. Gamers must watch an MX-5 ad located in one of the Xbox’s channels, enter the contest, and then participate in the MX-5 Challenge in the game itself.

A time trial around the game’s Sisteron Perimeter Sprint Track will be used to select the two fastest players, both of whom will fly to Los Angeles in June to compete head-to-head for the real car.

Players can download the new MX-5 car pack on March 17. Stay tuned for evo’s review of Forza Horizon 2 soon…
