    I'll honestly be really surprised if we don't see at least ONE of these cars as DLC, hopefully by next month. Here's to hoping they return to their regular schedule and release DLCs on the first Tuesday of the month (May 1st). :cheers:

    Same with me, just correcting the variant name.

    Honestly, I'm leaning more towards these cars being Horizon 4.

    The fact that so many of them are British kind of makes me feel that way.. Granted there is the odd none British one like the Mustang, but even then, the Mustang recently became for sale here for the first time ever.

    Ofcourse I could be wrong but that's how I see it.

    Two things; we are not guaranteed to have anymore dlc going beyond April so I will hold my breath until next Friday and see whats said during the WIR. Second is if we are in fact getting more dlc packs then we will have to see if at least one of those cars within those leaks are in plus don't forget the other hidden leaked cars that have not made it yet. The infiniti Q60, the Porsche 917 and the Lexus RCF GT3...if any of those cars are shown in a potential dlc pack next month then we can bet the rest will follow in the months to come.

    I'm pretty sure we are regardless of a guarantee or not. T10 leaves a note specifically outlining that the K1 Speed Attack pack is the final pack included in the Car Pass discount.
    Seeing as the Car Pass has also, always been 6 specific packs (the 1st six), it seems well implied there will be other packs it won't apply a discount to.

    On top of that, dating all the way back to FM3, it would seem very odd to end DLC support for the game now given:
    FM3 had 11 Car Packs
    FM4 had 12 Car Packs
    FM5 had 9 Car Packs + 3 Booster Packs
    FM6 has 10 Packs + 2 Expansions

    True. I'm just more or less saying that since T10 has been more disappointing and unpredictable with this iteration of Forza 7. But either way I'm open to more dlc....let's see what happens.

    Yep. Two things to note though for both of these.

    For FM4, the F10 M5 did grace the cover of the Collector's Edition b/c of T10's collaboration with the manufacturer. The car, according to Wiki, debuted publicly at Frankfurt in Sept. 2011 & would go on sale in Nov. 2011. Prior to that however, T10 claims the car was revealed at the exclusive BMW M-Festival which took place shortly before 2011 24 Hours of Nurburgring in June. During M-Fest, T10 already had the car modeled and available for party goers to "drive" the car which in a way, meant when the game launched in Oct. 2011, said car was sort of unveiled to the public alongside the game's release.

    For FM5, it was kind of a similar deal. True, the P1 did debut in 2012 at Paris. But, the car also debuted in 2013 at Geneva in its full production form in March. At E3 when FM5 was released & the P1 was displayed, the car was still very fresh in the public's eyes, as orders would not begin until late 2013.

    Basically, you are completely right that the trend of a cover car being revealed along with the game is a very young trend, but I think that decision can be traced back to FM4 when T10 really started working closely with BMW & McLaren on specific cars well before release & were picking them as cover cars because of their involvement. IIRC, the only reason Audi was on the cover of FM3 was not because of the R8, but because T10 had a small partnership with Audi during its development as well; there was a Audi TT FM Edition in which owners were given copies of the game as well.

    I've just been informed that there was another new thumbnail that I missed during my first search:

    [​IMG]

    Also, for a timescale reference, I've also been told that only this thumbnail and a few others were added in the most recent update, meaning that a lot of these thumbnails were added at some point between launch and the March update.

    These are the thumbnails that were actually newly added in April:
    • April's DLC cars
    • Monaro VXR8
    • 007 Aston DB5
    • Bentley 8 Litre
    • Austin Healey Sprite
    • Morris Minor
    • Ford Fiesta GRC
    • Peel P50

    EDIT: I've also found this. I'm clueless about old open wheel cars so I can't figure out if it's in the game already, and I can't ID it myself, but its ID (2480) isn't in the audio XML files which otherwise contain every single car in the game. Any ideas?

    That looks like a Lotus badge, but I'm not lining it up with any Lotus F1 or Indy cars from the 1950s or '60s.

    Great find! It’s a 1966 Cooper T81 Maserati (V12) with the areas for the Numbers not (yet) finished:

    Well things are lining up and definitely looking interesting. With 7 cars on that list it would make sense that could possibly be a car pack...

    Aren't there usually 2 or 3 car packs post-Car Pass?

    ..or 4 and or a car expansion...depends. but if trends continue we should POSSIBLY expect at least another 4 car packs. Another thing to add based on these leaks, besides the Lexus RCF GT3 there's not a single modern GT or prototype racer to be found. Going by that there's two main possibilities either there may be an Imsa Expansion that's hidden and will be released at some point or T10 just may not for some reason be adding many more modern racers. But again we have to see just how credible these leaks are as time goes on starting with May.

    The Vauxhall Monaro VXR8 is actually Australian.

    I know, but you know what I mean though, lines up with the FH4 idea.

    Call me a conspiracy theorist, but the fact that it's the British version of a quintessentially Australian car solidifies the FH4 rumours to me.

    You're a conspiracy theorist. (But you're probably right.)

    THAT'S JO BONNIER'S COOPER-MASERATI

    (And it'd make sense to see it added to the game anytime soon, seeing as they a) the Formula 60s division hasn't received any new metal since the RA300 joined the roster in the early days of the FM6 car pass, b) T10 has already dropped in a 250F featuring the same V12 engine as the Cooper. Also, IIRC the specific car is currently part of the Donington Grand Prix Collection, and if they got in there with all of their photogrammetry tools, we have a few exciting years ahead of us!)

    It's amazing how many videos are on Youtube about this and how none of them are actually giving @TheAdmiester any credit...

    They probably don’t give credit because 90% are so badly misquoted that they actually become their own new pieces of info :lol:

    Let me guess. They’re all just over 10 minutes long and 3-4 minutes are spent telling you to smash that like and subscribe button.

    Why is the Forza YouTube community so.... cringey? There's like, only three or four good ones and all the rest are eerily the same.
