Ah, the ’80s. Home of the perm, day-glow socks and jeans with zips everywhere. In the rallying world, the likes of Juha Kankkunen were winning six consecutive World Rally Championships in a Lancia Delta. These machines had proper muscle.

These days, the drivers have the benefit of more modern cars, and one of the biggest names is Sebastien Loeb. Milestone have teamed up with the 9-time World Champion to produce Sebastien Loeb Rally Evo. This will be released in October, so it’s rolling on towards pre-order time for this title and to give you a little extra incentive, they’ve rolled back the clock a little.

Pre-order your rally experience from GAME and you can expect to recieve not one, but two DLC packs featuring the legendary Pikes Peak International Hill Climb 1988 version along with the Peugeot 405 T16 PP and the Suzuki Escudo from the ’90s.

The Peugoet 405 sported a turbo-charged 4-cylinder engine producing 600 hp and it subsequently completed the Peak in 10:47.77.

The Suzuki was a prototype designed and engineered specifically for Pikes Peak in 1996 with a massive 2493 cc V6 in such a small car. It produced an eye-watering 985 hp and was capable of 0-60 mph in 3 seconds.

Pre-orders are open now, with Sebastien Loeb Rally Evo scheduled for lights out and release in October this year.
