Criterion has let loose a pair of screenshots of an upcoming car that will be part of a paid download coming in 2009. It's the Jansen 88 Special. Check this thing out:
Yes, it will shoot flames off of the tires when you boost. And you'll be able to enter and exit hover mode by clicking in the left stick. The car will be available for purchase on its own or as part of a set of four additional cars in the "Legendary" pack.
Criterion says it'll have more to announce about Burnout Paradise next week.
...hey, they should make this car the only one that can use the restart race feature.
