BURNOUT PARADISE™ LEGENDARY CARS
Four Legendary Cars hit Paradise City


In 2008, we introduced some of the most incredible vehicles yet seen in a Burnout game. Our FREE Cagney pack brought you the crazy Steel Oval Racer and the Hippie Wagon, and the FREE Bikes Pack brought motorcycles to Paradise City for the first time ever.

In 2009, we 're taking Burnout vehicles to the next level with some truly unbelievable new vehicles in the Burnout Paradise Legendary Cars Pack.

First up - The Jansen 88 Special.

This classic 1980's styled silver sports car is based on the fan-favourite Jansen P12, but we've made a few interesting modifications.

Fill the gauge and hit boost to trigger burning flame trails from your back wheels. The 88 Special 's fast, manoeuvrable and great in the air.

In fact, if you want to take off, this is just the car for you. Hit L3 to switch to hover mode - the wheels retract and the car takes off and hovers through Paradise City at head height.

Seriously. It hovers.

But, the 88 Special is just a one quarter of our forthcoming Legendary Cars pack. Now it's time to show you the 3 remaining cars.

We're keeping things pretty much under wraps on these vehicles for the moment. After all, we've got a ton of exciting content arriving at the beginning of Feb to tell you about first. But before we get into that, we couldn't resist bringing you the first images of these spectacular vehicles.

And keep an eye out for our recent video podcast - Crash TV Episode 20. The gang are showing the first daytime footage of the 88 Special and the first footage of all three of these hot cars.

Boostin' makes me feel good!

First up the Manhattan Spirit. Not the fastest car in Paradise City, but this reimagining of Burnout Paradise's Hunter Manhattan should keep the spirits at bay.

Fans of the original will know that this underused beauty is great for stunts. This customised special version is even better, but like all the Legendary Cars, this has a trick up its sleeve \- hit L3 and boost to find out what it does.

This car does not exist

This is the Carson Nighthawk.

Denied by the government and disowned by Carson, this ultra rare version of the Carson GT is the ultimate super pursuit vehicle!

The custom lighting array triggered by boost makes this the most distinctive-looking vehicle for night time events in the dangerous world of Paradise City.

One for the good ole boys

And finally, the Cavalry Bootlegger.

Branded with the Mexican flag and tagged as a tribute to The Chicanator, one of our big-time Mexican Burnout fans, this is a classic modified Hunter Cavalry.

Hit a massive jump and press L3 to sound the incredible horn \- it's one of the defining moments in Paradise City.

Also available in orange.

The Legendary Cars are available to buy individually or discounted, if you pick up the whole set.
