Right on cue, the weekly reset has refreshed the Specialty Dealer’s lineup in Forza 7. This week is particularly noteworthy as a certain Volkswagen is finally in the mix.
While the other two vehicles included in the lineup are repeats, the Type 2 more than makes up for it. A long time coming for many, the VW Bus was originally expected last October. Let’s take a closer look at what’s available on the showroom floor this week.
Specialty Dealer Lineup: June 19
- 2010 Aston Martin One-77 (Legendary +1,760; 1,035,000cr)
- 2010 Ferrari 599 GTO (Super Rare +902; 523,250 cr)
- 1963 Volkswagen Type 2 De Luxe (Common +44; 27,025cr)
First up is the Aston Martin One-77. We’re more than familiar with this limited-run hyper Aston by now. Only 77 examples of the car left the factory, all powered by a 7.3-liter V12 driving the rear wheels. All 750 horses drive the Aston to 60mph in 3.5 seconds and even further to its top speed of 220mph.
Up next is the returning Ferrari 599 GTO. This is your second opportunity to pick up the crazed road-going version of the 599XX. The GTO makes do with 49 more horsepower than the “base” 599 at 661hp. That power comes from a 6.0-liter V12, capable of pushing the car to serious speeds in no time at all; 0-60mph takes 3.3 seconds and it will top out at 208mph.
Finally, there’s the Volkswagen Type 2 De Luxe. There’s no question, the myriad-windowed Bus isn’t the sportiest of the group. In fact, it has the least amount of power of practically any Specialty Dealer car, ever. That isn’t enough of a reason to not pick up arguably the most fun vehicle in this week’s lineup. It’s also a bit of a painter’s dream.
Power comes from a 1.5-liter flat-four sending an unassuming 50hp to the rear wheels. Weighing in at 2500lb, it’s not going to set any lap time records, but you’ll have plenty of fun kicking it around every corner you find. It seems then that the Type 2 exchanges raw power and breakneck speeds for outright fun. Sign us up!
We’re looking forward to what next week has in store for the lineup. Cheaper than last week, 1,585,275 credits secures all three without worry.
