I wish I could say I’m making this one up, but it’s true. As part of Criterion Game’s upcoming paid-for “Legendary Cars” collection, a series of four new paid-for cars, is the Jansen 88 Special.
It can fly.
“In 2009, we’re taking Burnout vehicles to the next level with some truly unbelievable new vehicles. First up – The Jansen 88 Special.
This classic 1980’s styled silver sports car is based on the fan-favourite Jansen P12, but we’ve made a few interesting modifications. Fill the gauge and hit boost to trigger burning flame trails from your back wheels. The 88 Special’s fast, manoeuvrable and great in the air.
In fact, if you want to take off, this is just the car for you. Hit L3 to switch to hover mode – the wheels retract and the car takes off and hovers through Paradise City at head height.”
Any self confessed geek will instantly recognise what real-life car this little beauty is based on… and if you don’t, you should ashamed of yourself!
