Racing in the virtual world normally means climbing behind the wheel of a car you would never be able to in reality.

Typically, that also means you want to see how that car would drive and handle, even if it’s virtually. The latest Alpinestars Car Pack for Forza Motorsport 6 has a fine collection of cars and if you’ve ever wanted to see what the 1995 Pontiac Aztek feels like on a race track, here’s your chance. The update came just in time for this weekend’s Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona race and includes seven cars.

Players can now get behind the wheel of last year’s Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona winner, the 2015 Ford Chip Ganassi Racing Riley Mk XXVI Daytona Prototype. Powered by a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine, players will also get to compete in a special Rivals mode featuring the Ford Daytona Prototype on the Daytona Sports Car Circuit for a chance to win amazing Alpinestars prizes.

Other cars available in the car include the 1990 Mercury Whistler Radar Cougar XR-7, 1967 Sunbeam Tiger, 1992 Alfa Romeo Milano Quadrifoglio Verde, 1974 Toyota Corolla SR5, and 1996 Subaru SVX.

The Alpinestars Car Pack is included at no additional cost to owners of the Forza Motorsport 6 Car Pass. The pack can also be purchased separately for $6.99, but if you really want to know how the Pontiac Aztek fares in the virtual world, each car can be bought individually.

    Yay...? Also, despite appearing in the article as of 11:49 am 2/2/2016, there WAS no 1995 Aztek. It was only available from 2002-2005.
