Forza Motorsport 7 Specialty Dealer: Audi RS4 Avant and Lotus 340R, We Meet Again

Forza Motorsport 7 5 April 25, 2018 by

We’re back for this week’s Specialty Dealer refresh in Forza 7. Like the week before it, this is your second chance at two relatively new cars.

Whether it be a sporty saloon or an insane sports car, this week has plenty to offer. For those not in the know, here’s a closer look at everything featured this week.

Specialty Dealer Update: April 24

  • 2001 Audi RS4 Avant (Uncommon +187; 108,100cr)
  • 1974 Lancia Stratos (Uncommon +132; 75,900cr)
  • 2000 Lotus 340R (Rare +226; 132,250cr)
  • 1973 Nissan Skyline H/T 2000GT-R (Common +99; 56,925)

Co-developed by Porsche, the Audi RS4 Avant is up first. Despite its hefty weight of 3,555lb, the Avant has plenty of get-up-and-go. Powered by a 2.7-liter bi-turbo V6, the sprint to 60mph takes less than five seconds. Given enough breathing room to let loose, the RS4 will rocket to 163mph — not bad for a car meant to haul around several people at once.

The Lancia Stratos needs little introduction. Purpose-built for rally racing, it took the crown in 1974, ’75, and ’76. Moreover, it also dominated the Monte Carlo Rally for three years, 1975-1977. Power comes from a 2.4-liter Ferrari Dino V6. While its performance is modest by comparison — 0-60 mph in eight seconds and a top speed of 144mph — it packs quite the punch. As one of the more respected of this week’s bunch, we expect it to be a favorite.

Following that is the unquestionably insane Lotus 340R. With nary a door or roof to speak of, the 340R focuses on unbridled performance — and it does so very well. A 1.8-liter four-cylinder sends 178hp to the rear wheels in a sports car weighing only 1,488lb. The bare Lotus erupts to 60mph in 4.5 seconds and onto to a top speed of 132mph. While it may not sound impressive on paper, in a car this nimble the 340R is a true giant killer.

Last but not least, there’s the Nissan Skyline GTR. The C110, while innovative for its time, met its demise only four months into production as a result of stricter emissions. “Ken and Mary” is likely to find its way into any collector’s garage and here’s your opportunity.

You know what comes next: one week stands between you and this latest offerings. 373,175 credits is the final asking price for a clean sweep. It’s a cheaper week than others, so get a move on.
