Codemasters is getting down and dirty with some hot new footage of ... ugh. Okay, look, I'm not going to do that to you. There's a new trailer for Colin McRae's DiRT 2, alright? The game looks very good. Let's knock this off. The press release after the jump has enough bad puns in it for the both of us.
The new video showcases game footage intermingling with clips of real rally, and while it isn't exactly impossible to differentiate the two, the game certainly does look nice. If the sense of speed we're seeing from outside the cars makes its way to the inside as well, we've got an exhilharating rally title on the way. I'm hoping the trailer's music isn't too indicative of what we'll be driving along to, but the car porn definitely has my attention.

To tease one of the upcoming cars arriving for Driveclub this month, the developers decided to give us a sneak peak via a video showing off the terrifying speed the unnamed four-wheeled machine can do -- at least 242 mph.
You got what it takes to hit that kind of speed and not end up a stain on the road? We'll have to see in the coming weeks.
