McLaren Senna joins Hot Wheels Unleashed in latest update

Hot Wheels Unleashed came out last September and was a surprise hit for developer Milestone. Since then, a raft of updates have added new cars and track customisation options to keep players busy with Milestone’s marvellous toy car racer. Some add-ons are free, while others are paid DLC.

Now, the latest batch of premium DLC has arrived. March’s update includes three new cars, a new track module and a customisation pack. These add-ons are included in the Hot Wheels Pass Vol.2 or can be purchased separately.

New cars

The highlight of the Hot Wheels Unleashed March update is the McLaren Senna. Built as a tribute to the late Ayrton Senna, the Hot Wheels car retains its real-life counterpart’s aggressive body kit. With its massive rear wing, the McLaren Senna stands out on the track.
