Criterion posted up some new details and shots of the rest of the Legendary Cars pack for Burnout Paradise. The team previously revealed the Jansen 88 Special, an obvious homage to the Delorean from Back to the Future. This led people to wonder if the other three cars would be similarly inspired. Well... yeah, they are.
The Hunter Manhattan Spirit is, essentially, Ecto-1 from Ghostbusters. The Carson Nighthawk has a decidedly KITT-like look to it, and the Hunter Cavalry Bootlegger is a Mexican-themed take on the General Lee. As noted on the Criterion blog, the car is "also available in orange." Additionally, the Bootlegger will have a horn--which will probably make it the only car in Burnout Paradise to sound off. Perfect for big jumps, I'm guessing. [ED NOTE: I will bet cash money that horn plays "La Cucaracha." -Ryan]
In addition to the new rides, the company opened up a merchandise store on one of those "send us your art, we'll put it on everything" stores. I'm way into the Paradise Petroleum shirt, as well as the Super Jump logo. Pretty cool stuff. But for the record, we recommend sticking to genuine Giant Bomb merchandise. Accept no substitutes!
