“Forza Motorsport 5” Alpinestars Car Pack Now Available

Alpinestars is bringing its signature flair to “Forza Motorsport 5” in the newest car pack for the game, providing inspiration for an all-new collection of cars for the game, each of which has been built from the ground up for the new generation.

The Alpinestars Car Pack includes ten amazing vehicles for Forza 5 players to collect, race, and customise.  Fans of vintage American muscle can power their way past in the competition in the 1965 Ford Mustang GT Coupe while speed demons can chase new lap records in the 2011 Radical SR8 RX or the 2012 Ultimate GTR720. Featuring track-bred racers, luxury sedans, classic cruisers, and more, the Alpinestars Car Pack’s well-rounded selection has something to please car fans of every stripe.

Founded in 1963, Alpinestars began manufacturing hiking and ski boots but quickly found a niche in developing high performance protective gear for automotive and motorcycle racing. Over the years, Alpinestars has become a trusted brand in action sport clothing for MotoGP, Motocross, Formula One and NASCAR. The brand’s Nomex suits protect from flames and high heat and have been used by champions such as Fernando Alonso and Jimmie Johnson. Even Top Gear’s notable Stig wears branded Alpinestars racing gear from head-to-toe.

The Alpinestars Car Pack (included as part of the Forza Motorsport 5 Car Pass) is now available for AU $13.45 and includes all ten cars, with the 1999 Toyota #3 Toyota Motorsports GT-ONE TS020 immediately accessible in your Forza Motorsport 5 garage.
