The Racing Car Pack ($7.99) adds 15 vehicles like the Red Bull X2011 Prototype ’11, which is currently up for grabs for one week as a free gift as a result of Sebastian Vettel nabbing his second Formula One world championship.

Of course, you can always bundle all of the DLC for $11.99 on October 18.
