New BMW M4, Ford Mustang get their first drive in Gran Turismo and Need for Speed
One great thing about racing games is that they give you a way to drive new and fancy cars anytime without having to sell a limb or two. The recently released Gran Turismo 6 and EA’s Need for Speed: Rivals, for instance, now puts you in the driver’s seats of the pricey 2014 BMW M4 Coupé and the 2015 Ford Mustang muscle car, respectively. While both rides aren’t slated for release until 2014, the games’ developers worked closely with the automakers to make the digital counterparts as detailed as possible. EA even recorded the actual sounds of the Mustang’s V-8 engine for the game. As a huge plus, they’re available as free digital downloads, so you don’t need to tap into those emergency holiday funds just to take them for a virtual test drive.
