Forza Horizon 2 Receives FM6 Fast & Furious Pack

Back in the early spring of 2015, Forza Horizon 2 had a tie-in car pack (and spin-off, standalone mini-game) with a little movie titled Furious 7. You may have heard of it: not only did it break the record for shortest time for a film to break the $1 billion dollar worldwide gross mark (17 days), it’s gone on to be the second highest-grossing movie of the year. A serious force, then.

That pack contained cars exclusively from the newest installment of the franchise, such as the 900bhp Charger made (in)famous by Vin Diesel’s character Dom Toretto, Paul Walker’s personal Supra, a Maserati Ghibli driven by Jason Statham’s villian character, and others. Curiously, a few months later, it was announced that Forza Motorsport 6 would also contain a Fast & Furious car pack, arriving on launch day.

The small change in title proved to be intentional, as the 10-car pack brought a variety of cars spanning the entire movie heptalogy, in the same designs they were shown with on-screen. Those 10 cars are now arriving Forza Horizon 2, seen in the FM6 trailer below:

While some of these vehicles arguably make more sense in the more casual title (the gigantic Gurkha and off-road-ready Charger in particular), there is an unusual issue present in the pack. None of these Fast & Furious Edition cars are paintable, other than their rims. This is strange, as such restrictions aren’t in place in the Motorsport title.

If you’ve been wanting to live your life a quarter mile at a time, around Southern European locales, the pack is available from the XBox Marketplace for $10.

    What happened to the paintjob on the S2000? It is not solid pink in the movie.

    The Supra has its custom paint present, and so does the escort.

      From memory, the S2000’s design in real life was designed and airbrushed by an outsourced artist, unlike it being used under licence from another company or designed by the movie car’s coordinators. There was probably a copyright issue with the designer, hence no livery.

      It’s also why a lot of the aftermarket gauges don’t have logos, or why the nitrous tanks lack any branding.

    Not really a surprise that you can’t paint them since the cars are replicas from the movies. Now if the cars had black borders instead of interiors I would certainly raise an eyebrow…
