Turn 10 has pulled the covers off the latest Forza Motorsport 7 car pack. With Top Gear as the title sponsor, it’s an eclectic mix of modern and classic metal, and brings two new manufacturers into the Forza family.
Forza fans found out about the Top Gear Car Pack, set to land July 10, via yesterday’s Forza Monthly show. There, each of the seven following new cars got some time in the spotlight:
- 1958 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Veloce
- 2018 Exomotive Exocet Sport V8 XP-5
- 2017 Ferrari 812 Superfast
- 2018 KTM #22 True Racing X-Bow GT4
- 2018 McLaren 720S
- 1964 Porsche 904 Carrera GTS
- 2017 VUHL 05RR
Two of those cars were known quantities. Turn 10 showed off the 812 Superfast last week, and announced the McLaren 720S back in June.
As a contrast, the VUHL and Exomotive are both (welcome) surprises. Both minimalist track weapons are new marques to the franchise. VUHL is a Mexican sports car manufacturer, and the 05RR is the wildest model yet. With a full carbon body and a turbocharged, 385hp Ford-sourced engine, it boasts a hypercar-baiting power/weight ratio.
The Exocet Sport looks like an Ariel Atom drawing you were forced to pen from memory alone. But it’s a Chapman-esque stew of some of the best parts of the automotive kingdom: it only uses what’s necessary, and eschews everything else. The bones are from the Mazda Miata, onto which owners add an Exomotive kit to transform the car. Add in that most ubiquitous of project car engines — a Chevy LS — and you’ve got the Exocet.
Rounding out the pack is a modern race car and two classics. The KTM is the first GT4-spec car to land in FM7, while the Alfa and Porsche are reminders of their respective marques’ histories.
The Top Gear Car Pack will run the usual $6.99 price on the Xbox Store. If you’re a Car Pass holder, it’ll be free, as Turn 10 extended the pass to cover this (and one other currently-unknown pack).
