The brands will appear in the Closed Beta test phase from today at www.AutoClubRevolution.com where applications to join the beta test are now open.

“An authentic, rich experience is of paramount importance to the Auto Club Revolution team”, explained Eutechnyx COO, Darren Jobling, “Our team has worked incredibly hard to sign many major brands known to lovers of car modification. We're delighted with the response from the motoring industry who quickly understood the value in seeing their brands included in this revolutionary online game and car community.”

The parts available from Auto Club Revolution’s Upgrades Shop include everything needed to turn even stock showroom models into highly-tuned track heavy-weights. From engine upgrades, turbochargers and fuel injection to brakes, gearbox and tyres, every car can be modified to suit its owner’s tastes and needs.

Product manager, Jason Collins added, “It’s been a colossal undertaking to make sure we have the best range of branded upgrades ever seen in a racing title. This has required us to forge close working relationships to ensure that each company is properly represented, both in terms of their brand and the capabilities of the upgrades they offer. As such, we’re hugely proud to be rolling out the world’s hottest manufacturers in the Upgrades Shop to our beta testers and in the process, making a definitive statement about the direction we’re taking for Auto Club Revolution.”
