The new Hyundai Veloster Turbo three-door horseless carriage was unveiled at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show yesterday, and today you can take it for a test-drive in Forza Motorsport 4 thanks to a free downloadable content double-pack. Now there's canny transmedia marketing!
The Hyundai Veloster Bonus Pack offers the 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo, to drive or to admire in Autovista, plus the 2011 Rhys Millen Racing Hyundai Veloster for just plain racing. You can download it now from the Xbox Live Marketplace for $0 (0 Microsoft Points).
The marketing promotion also extends to a time trials event that'll see the winner take home a shiny 2012 Hyundai Veloster of their own. Registration closed on January 8, though, so hard luck if you haven't already signed up.
People who live in areas with a poor public transport network might appreciate the following automotive facts: the Veloster Turbo has a "1.6 liter inline four" engine, while the 2011 Racing Veloster weighs "just over 2,800 pounds"--that's about 14 newborn elephants.
