It looks like Turn 10's promise of downloadable content for August held true, as word has come to us that it's got free cars for download via Xbox Live, as well as a tournament for Forza Motorsport 2 fans.
The news is that three new Nissan cars and a Peugeot car are now available for download through Xbox Live. These are the 2007 Nissan Altima, 2007 Nissan Sentra SE-R, and 2007 Nissan 350Z. They're available for download on all regions, so as long as you have an Xbox Live connection and a copy of the video game, Forza Motorsport 2, you're good to go. On the other hand, you can also pick up the famed Peugeot 908 race car for 50 Microsoft Points.
In related news, Xbox and Nissan are celebrating the release of this new DLC by kicking off two different contests. The first is a Nissan Sentra SE-R racing tourney, whose details you can read about below:
The 32 bracket 256 player tournament will kick off on 18th August and take place over the course of seven weeks. It will finish on the 6th October with a championship race live at the L.A. Auto Show. Finalists will compete for a series of prizes including a chance to win a new Nissan!
The second is an in-game customization contest, where players can customize their Nissan Sentra SE-Rs to come up with the coolest paint job. They'll be judged by members of Turn 10 and Nissan, so you better make those paint jobs extra stylish.
