Forza Motorsport 7 Specialty Dealer: BMW Z8 and Koenigsegg Regera Arrive

Right on schedule, Turn 10 has refreshed the Specialty Dealer lineup in Forza 7. Picking up the new pattern that debuted last week, this round is no longer a simple repeat of a previous one.

Plenty of shenanigans await this week. Whether you’re looking for a drive with the top down and the world isn’t enough, or you’re after breakneck speeds, you’ll find what you’re after. Without any further ado, let’s take a closer look at what this week has to offer.

Specialty Dealer Update: May 22

  • 2000 BMW Z8 (Rare +297; 172,500 cr)
  • 2016 Koenigsegg Regera (Legendary +2,750; 1,610,000 cr)
  • 2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series (Rare +336; 195,500 cr)

First on the list is the 2000 BMW Z8. There’s no mistaking the Bimmer’s good looks; it looks even better with the top down. Good news, then, as the top will always be down in Forza, whether the sun is shining or the rain is pouring. The Z8 has plenty going for it, most importantly the unmistakable likeness to the classic 507.

Powering its rear wheels is a 4.9-liter V8 putting down an even 400hp. Built by BMW Motorsport, the S62 V8 comes from the E39 M5, arguably one of the greatest cars the firm has ever built. 0-60mph takes 4.2 seconds and will go on to an electronically-limited top speed of 155mph. Who knows, you may even find your inner Bond.

Next up is, without question, the single most insane car featured yet — the Koenigsegg Regera. It may surprise you to know this is one of the meanest hybrids around. These Swedish hypercars need little introduction. With that said, let’s take a closer look at the hyper hybrid.

The Regera, Swedish for “to reign”, is a limited-run model of only 80 units. This isn’t your normal Sunday driver, nor should it be mistaken for one. Three YASA electric motors work alongside a 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 to send 1,797hp to the rear wheels. That’s right, you’re looking at a hybrid that casually lays claim to almost 1800 horsepower. The funny thing is, this is one of the more practical offerings from the Swedish carmaker.

0-62mph takes no time at all; 2.7 seconds to be exact. Given enough open pavement to let loose, the Regera will claim an electronically-limited top speed of 255mph. Like we said, this is without question the most insane car featured yet. Unless the next offering is from a certain French manufacturer, this is hypercar endgame as far as the Specialty Dealer goes.

Finally, there’s the C63 AMG. We’ve been down this path before and you know exactly what you’re getting. Here’s a quick refresher: a 6.2-liter V8 sends 510hp to the rear wheels. The AMG-tuned monster will sprint to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds and on to its 186mph top speed.

It may not be as insane as the Regera, but that doesn’t mean you should take the Merc lightly. Overstep the boundaries and you may find yourself in more trouble than you can handle.

You’ll have until next week to pick up this week’s offerings; 1,987,000 credits gets it done in one fell swoop.
