2. OFF-ROAD GAMING: RISE TO THE DIRT RALLY 2.0 CHALLENGE
DiRT Rally 2.0 has been on the market for over a couple of years, yet we still reckon it is one of the best off-road games out there. It dares you to carve your way through a selection of iconic rally locations across the globe, in the most powerful off-road vehicles ever made, knowing that the smallest mistake could end your stage. DiRT Rally 2.0 is a must-have for both driving-sim and rally fanatics. It’s a fully licensed World RX title, providing you with access to the best real-life tracks and Group B vehicles the series has including Motul’s iconic BMW M1 rally car. Codemasters' excellent driving physics give the game a hugely satisfying mechanical feel, and the visual clarity on both cars and landscapes are simply stunning.
3. MOTUL X DIVERSE COLLECTION: WEAR YOUR PASSION
Motul’s heritage stretches back nearly 170 years. It’s a story of innovation, motorsport prowess and passion. And it’s a story that is being brought to life on an exciting clothing range. Fans and customers can now celebrate their love of the brand with the new Motul x DIVERSE Collection, an apparel line that looks back at Motul’s heritage. The collection is available online and can be ordered and shipped directly to your doorstep via the Diverse website. Beats the annual Christmas socks, right?
4. Waft’s exquisite book on RUF – The limited one
Our friends from Waft just released another iconic book on an even more iconic brand: RUF. As a partner and friend of Motul, we’re unashamedly passionate when it comes to RUF. RUF - The limited one is a unique two-part book about the life and work of Alois Ruf and the company’s incredible cars.
