    The Cars

    2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio

    Forza Motorsport 7 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio.png
    It’s been 21 years since Alfa Romeo sold cars in the United States, and one drive of the new Giulia might infer they spent the entire time making sure their next entry was perfect. The Giulia Quadrifoglio is all Alfa Romeo, with exotic lines, delicate styling touches, and the performance you expect from an Italian sport sedan. In Quadrifoglio dress the biggest treat is the 505 horsepower Ferrari-derived 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6. Not only is it four-letter fast, but the sonorous rumble it emits is stunning from idle to redline. The front bumper on Quadrifoglio models is aggressive looking and, in the rear, you will find the gigantic rear diffuser and a gorgeously protruding exhaust. It’s been a long time to wait for the new Giulia, but by any measure it was worth it.

    1984 Nissan #20 Coca-Cola Bluebird Super Silhouette
    Forza Motorsport 7 1984 Nissan #20 Coca-Cola Bluebird Super Silhouette.png

    If the Nissan Bluebird’s iconic angular aero kit and amazing wide body don’t immediately impress you, then the raw gut-wrenching power of its 562 horsepower LZ20B engine will. This was of course the 1980s and the silhouette-bodied cars were outlandish experiments, designed to improve grip and destroy the competition. Underneath the body, whose silhouette resembles the Bluebird production model, is a bare-naked race car. The KY910 was the first from Nissan to show what its racing efforts could produce in this class, and it was monumentally successful. The Coca-Cola liveried #20 won the Fuji Grand Championships in 1980 and 1982, and three of four rounds in 1983. Could it be your next go-to racer? The #20 is ready to ride on rails, but be careful, this is a pure race machine not to be taken lightly.

    1978 Porsche #78 MOMO 935/78
    Forza Motorsport 7 1978 Porsche #78 MOMO 935 78.png

    Most folks know “Moby Dick” as the famous novel written by Herman Melville. In automotive circles, the nickname “Moby Dick” refers to just one car: Porsche’s beloved 935/78. This race car represented the peak of FIA Group 5 racing before rules changes made it obsolete. The long white tail of its Martini-liveried cousin gave it the nickname, and it remains one of the greatest beasts to ever blast down the Mulsanne Straight at Le Mans. The car was built specifically to compete there, even incorporating right-hand drive for better balance and sighting for the curvy clockwise course. The 935 /78 could reach speeds as high as 227 mph; enough to pass the dominant Renault Alpines and the Porsche 936. The massive turbo (along with massive lag) was known for extraordinary exhaust fireballs, but these 845 hp beasts were sadly short lived. Now’s your chance to relive those late-70s thrills again.

    2017 Abarth 124 Spider
    Forza Motorsport 7 2017 Abarth 124 Spider.jpg

    Built on the same chassis and with many of the same components of the Mazda Miata, the Abarth 124 Spider takes that solid base and spices it up with Italian flair. This variant has the most horsepower available and an optimized suspension. The car’s bulging lines beg to cut their way through the wind with the top down. Under the long hood is the treat that separates the 124 from its Japanese sibling. Whether you actually find the turbo in the engine bay or note the distinguishing sound of it spooling up as you throttle up, the forced induction is what makes this little convertible a real treat. Like the Miata, this is a car you can drive at 100 percent all day and have loads of fun in the process. So, what are you waiting for?

    1957 Maserati 250F
    Forza Motorsport 7 1957 Maserati 250F.png

    Sir Stirling Moss said it was one of the best front-engine Formula One cars he had ever driven. The great Juan Manuel Fangio broke the Nürburgring track record in a 250F nine times in ten laps in one race, overcoming a 48-second gap to win the German Grand Prix on the second-to-last lap. These are just a few of the tales from the cigar-bodied 250F’s storied history as one of the last of the front-engine racers of its era. There were only 26 examples ever produced and their racing spanned from 1954 to 1960. Piloting the 2.5-liter V12-powered lithe tube frame chassis on ancient tire technology not much wider than the accelerator pedal was not for the faint of heart. The fuel mixture contained methanol, gasoline, acetone, benzol, and castor oil, a potent and poisonous mix. The notion of seat belts seemed absurd as it was preferable to be thrown from the vehicle than be burnt alive in a crash. While you will be safe racing the 250F in Forza, spare a thought for the motorsport heroes that risked their lives every time they climbed in behind the massive steering wheel.

    2016 Toyota Land Cruiser Arctic Trucks AT37
    Forza Motorsport 7 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser Arctic Trucks AT37.jpg

    Icelandic vehicle re-engineering house Artic Trucks says you don’t have to be a polar explorer to own one of their rigs, but the fact is you could be. Artic Trucks have been driven to both magnetic poles and even set a record for the fastest journey to the South Pole. In the case of the Land Cruiser AT37, defined by the size of its tires, you have a vehicle that isn’t simply lifted for looks; it has been re-engineered from the ground up to be one of the most versatile rides on the planet. A suspension and body lift, as well as full consideration of all drivetrain components, gives this Land Cruiser not only a unique look but an unforgettable driving experience.

    2015 Honda Ridgeline Baja Trophy Truck
    Forza Motorsport 7 2015 Honda Ridgeline Baja Trophy Truck.png

    The Baja 1000 is one of the most grueling off-road races in the world. The 2015 course was 821 miles of rocks, sand, and incredible obstacles. This specially built Trophy Truck competed and won Class-2 (forced induction engines up to 3.6 liters) that year. Honda Performance Development built the Ridgeline Trophy Truck to showcase the design of the second generation Ridgeline pickup. Design cues including the front facia, hood, roof, and bed are taken directly from the new model. The engine utilizes the same block, heads, and crankshaft from the 3.5-liter V6 that will power the 2017 production model. Twin-turbos in the race truck helped bump output to 550 horsepower, and the remainder of the vehicle is a custom-built tube frame chassis with the kind of massive suspension needed to take the punishment the Baja desert dishes out every mile. Take this one of kind racer to the track against the other off-roaders and find out for yourself how it matches up.

    Why don't they call it the "Hey, let's buy the latest Smartsung"-DLC?

    But that is Forza for you, guys...

    These Forza DLC names gotta have to be some of the most stupid thing that's happening in the gaming world currently. So you're paying for the base game, you're paying for extra content, and on top of that you get advertisement? I'm afraid I'll stick with AC...

    Can someone explain the Samsung tie up? I don't see any relevance at all. I hate Samsung. Such a tacky brand at times.

    Samsung is about to redefine VR, just not in Forza. Oops.

    I just assumed the answer is money. Maybe exposure + money. Xbox One X, better with Samsung HDR.

    Samsung are the last company on earth that need more exposure. For a company so omnipresent they are faceless and lack class.

    Its rather obvious, companies pay to promote their own brand or products to a guaranteed wide audience. Newspapers, magazines, radio, TV, social media, streaming services all do it.

    Games now do it too, terrible isnt it.... :sneaky:

    Are these familiar?

    Alpinestars Car Pack
    Logitech G Car Pack
    Rockstar Energy Car Pack
    Playseat Car Pack
    Duracell Car Pack
    Mountain Dew Car Pack
    Hot Wheels Expansion

    To be honest none of these are familiar to me. However this does put it in to a bit more context. I thought it was just a random play from Samsung who tend to just chuck money around.

    Can't say I'm a fan of the idea of sponsoring dlc but whatever I suppose.

    It's not much different elsewhere. As part of a deal they do add some latest civilian cars to games as a promotion, of course with a bit of tweaking they are better/faster/easier than other stuff because they can't make them as crap as they can be at times. But paying for it as DLC... hell no.

    Some of you guys get bent out of shape over the dumbest things. I don't care what they call the DLC packs, I skip right past the name and and look at the content.

    At least this one actually brought Hot Wheels cars to the game.

    At least that one gives a new area to play on some insanely fast plastic massive tracks. That expansion is fantastic and it is marketing done well.

    Well anoyed is not the word, but correct me if I am wrong, but if we pay for a DLC why does it need to have a sponsor? If they give away the cars, sure.

    Marketing name discussion aside for a moment, this is a decent set of cars and all feel markedly different which is excellent for a Forza game. We gave each car a go in a race last night, no assists etc to get the full effect of each car.

    2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio - handles well, tail happy with excess throttle at the exit and truly awful brakes for the power available. Made for an entertaining race of overshot apexes.

    1984 Nissan #20 Coca-Cola Bluebird Super Silhouette - puts the power down well and has plenty of grip, right up to the moment when it doesn't and then it was difficult to recover. Superbly fast if kept tidy but not a car, in standard tune, to push past the limit. Some excellent weaving effects under heavy braking too.

    1978 Porsche #78 MOMO 935/78 - what a machine, even on the undulating Bathurst it has grip to match the power available. A lot more body roll than modern racing cars so it needed clean lines over the mountain section. On the straight and through the kink it was a little exciting liking to wander a little and not quite having the downforce to take the kink flat out. Braking after the kink was more like throwing out the anchor and hoping it would stop. Above all good fun.

    2017 Abarth 124 Spider - superb to hold just a few degrees of slide around the longer corners. As easy and as much fun as you'd expect from the Fiat MX5. Great rear wheel slip/spin effects through the TX458 wheel too.

    1957 Maserati 250F - as much fun as it is in Assetto Corsa, sounds just as crazy and will slide just about everywhere. More excellent wheel effects when the skinny front tyres start to scrub across the track and that quickly transitions into a neutral 4 wheel slide. Faster when driven carefully but where is the fun in that. Nowhere near as tricky to drive as the Assetto Corsa version of course but you certainly know you are in the same car.

    2015 Honda Ridgeline Baja Trophy Truck - ha ha ha just too funny, not a vehicle designed to race on tarmac and that shows. Massive amounts of body roll and once it starts to slide the weight overwhelms the tyres, the tyres get red hot and it becomes like trying to control an elephant on ice. Use the handbrake at your own peril because catching the slide before the tyres overheat and spin the truck around requires feline reactions.

    I know Forza isn't a popular title here but those who have access to it really should give a range of cars like this a go and compare them with back to back drives on your sim of choice. Forza 7 is a long way from perfect but it is much better than it has ever been in terms of car handling and wheel feedback.

    Like many others here I couldn't care less about the pack sponsors name but I can say Forza 7 looks amazing in 4K on Ultra settings on my 4K monitor which just happens to be made by Samsung...

    I don't really care if Turn 10 want to bring in more money by doing such as it doesn't even bother me.
    My focus is on the content itself and the fun I will get out of it.
