I really hope they kept an eye on balancing these cars this time. Please not another '32 Roadster, Atomic Punk, Bone Shaker or Track-Tor.

Is this DLC a part of Ultimate Edition or it needs to be purchased seperately?

I echo the sentiment, however, that recent stunt they pulled with the WP makes me feel like we should be brave and prepare to be horrified, outraged, and/or disappointed.

I think it's a reason for DLC. New OP cars, it's always good to change old orders.

...and just an observation, the fact that this is a HW-themed pack notwithstanding, this DLC coupled w a general majority of exclusives offered within the last few quarters, collectively – for me, anyway, seems to have maybe been lacking in UK flavor. At least, to this ignorant American.

Now, I'm sure someone will prove me wrong, with the usual fervor, citing this, that, and another example of UK Automotives offered this year, and that's fine. I'm just saying, my personal, overall impression of the UK 'flavor' I was expecting to see after what I saw Australia seem to get in H3, is well, lacking to me, ...as in this game could have just as easily been set in Vienna, Austria, with minimal adjustment.

I just thought, especially being located in the UK, that they were going to have dived a bit deeper with the UK orientation; lord knows there's an embarrassment of riches for PG to pull from. I just dont see or feel it if they have been to the contrary and its more just sheltered squryl, unfamiliar with the big obvious UK automotive prescence running throught the US even. And dont get me wrong, I *love* my MG's and all the little unsung roadster heros, and despite S1 SuperHyperReeeeReeeeReeee cars generally not being my cup o' tea, I've fallen hard for the McLarens this time 'round and have trouble puttting my top 5 favorite McLarens in order....but I guess I was expecting more UK by way of the regular exclusive slow dripping.

And then the DLC we have seen offered with actual original and new content has been reworkings, reimagings, redesigns and custom and outlandish vehicles...and now here comes more stuff i'm not sure many have asked for, certainly in sum, all told, it all feels anything but UK-ish, dare I say the game feels more New England, USA than anything close to what my American impression is of the English countryside. And that, I think, is really quite a shame! I thought I was really going to feel it, meet a whole slew of strange, otherworldly cars and brands, lots of 'what-the-hale-is-that-crazy-deathtrap-looking-things' and other gems fueled with good old fashioned 'pip pip cheerio' flavor... But it feels like the whole UK part was left at the Bond pack and some houndstooth and tartan fabric for our drivatar fashion. But perhaps I am just woefully mistaken (and tragically American? 😄)

That's not meant to detract from this HW content, whether we wanted that or not (for what it's worth, I've always liked the Rip Rod, there I said it, out of the closet now).

Just an observation.

THIS! I'm UK based and whilst obviously parts of the map resemble this country and details like phoneboxes and signs etc are correct. That's probably it. There are hundreds of cars they could've added to make it feel alot more like home. I get they have to appeal to a wide range of car fans but I feel there could've been alot more effort put into the car content.

NumerableToast, Squryl - can you give me the names? I can't think of any important UK car that is missed. Maybe besides Mondeo ST. And maybe older Corsa or Kadett GSi. Maybe Jensen.

I can't give you names of omitted UK flava cars; my credibility as an ignorant American would be shot to hell! 😄

It's also a very stereotypical representation of the UK too with the map, we have more here than greenery, lots of stone and quaint little villages.

Mondeo and corsa...! Really!? Anyway here's just a small selection of missed opportunities as you requested: Jensen Interceptor, Reliant Scimitar, Rover P5B coupe, Lister Storm, Triumph Herald, Triumph Dolomite Sprint, TVR Chimaera, TVR Griffith, Ford Granada, Vauxhall Viva, Triumph Stag, Delorean DMC12, Ginetta G40, Vauxhall Chevette HSR, Vauxhall Firenza, Ford Pop, etc etc etc

These do look like fun. That flat, yellow boat-looking thing screams "Ford Roadster, I'm your worst nightmare!"
B700 & C600 leaderboards are about to get a rude awakening, I suspect.

This is turning into a wishlist so I'll just say a couple of these new HW cars look amazing and I'll definitely get the pack just for something new to mess around with tuning etc

I'll second the Mondeo ST cos I've owned two in the past :) I always thought they would add a nice beige Allegro as a barn find, just for the laughs. Square steering wheel and all.

Just watched the stream. I'm suprised how different tastes can people have. I think one of the hosts put it nicely "these cars are more about form, not function". I'm on the opposite side.

Hey, don't laugh at me. I'm from country where we have Opels, not Vauxhalls. Opel GSi models are important :P
To be honest I haven't heard about half of that cars you mentioned, but would gladly see them too (Rover P5B would be on top of my list). Maybe besides TVR, they are all the same for me ;)

PS. I'm suprised Calibra never got into any game.

Well, considering only 16 total RHD cars were produced for the UK market, with the rest being LHD for the US market (all of the RHD cars were only ever sold at auction after the company went into receivership). Also, John DeLorean was an American engineer. Kinda hard calling that an official UK car (as in regularly sold in). Does the world look at Dodge Ram trucks as either Canadian or Mexican due to them being built almost exclusively in those countries?

I don't disagree that it would be nice to see, but there are many other cars that could be considered actual UK specific cars, like the Jensen Interceptor.

You're welcome to claim it even though he's American born and it was an American market car. Rhd was an afterthought. I thought it was financed otherwise, but maybe that was just at the end.
