A lap of the dig­i­tal moun­tain

Australian Muscle Car - - Muscle Maniac -

Fancy throw­ing a To­rana A9X across the top of Mount Panorama but don’t have a race­car ly­ing around?

Luck­ily any num­ber of con­sole games have you cov­ered these days with Mount Panorama be­ing in­cluded in nu­mer­ous ti­tles. One be­ing the sixth in­car­na­tion of the pop­u­lar Forza Mo­tor­sport ti­tle for Xbox. And with a slowly grow­ing cat­a­logue of Aussie cars its eas­ier than ever to jump in some home­grown mus­cle.

It fea­tures such home­grown clas­sics as the XB GT Fal­con, HSV GTS, Brab­ham BT24 and the full com­ple­ment of Su­per­car mar­ques. Since launch there has been the ad­di­tions of some Holden favourites such as the HQ Monaro GTS 350, VL Group A SV Com­modore and A9X To­rana.

All cars are fully up­grade­able and you can tune the setup till you’ve got the car you want, throw new liv­ery on and hit the track.

And it’s not just the fa­bled rib­bon of tar­mac just out­side of Bathurst, you can also try and tame le­gendary cir­cuits such as La­guna Seca, Vir­ginia In­ter­na­tional Race­way, Se­bring, Watkins Glen, Monza, Spa de Fran­cor­champs. And if that’s not enough there’s al­ways the 21km Nur­bur­gring Nord­schleife known af­fec­tion­ally as the “Green Hell”. And at the end of the day if you get it wrong, there’s al­ways the restart but­ton.
