The Forza Motorsport 7 'Dell Gaming Car Pack DLC' is available as part of the February update for the Xbox racing title.
With the February update made available yesterday to all owners of the Forza Motorsport 7 title on Microsoft Xbox, development team Turn 10 Studios have also let a brand new car pack out into the wilds, releasing seven car strong 'Dell Gaming Car Pack DLC' to the title, a new DLC pack that adds an interesting mix of machines from the likes of Aston Martin, Audi, Kia, RAM, Holden and Dodge.
Forza Motorsport 7 Dell Car Pack DLC Contents
- 2018 Bugatti Chiron
- 2018 Kia Stinger
- 2016 Audi #17 Rotek Racing TT RS
- 2017 Aston Martin Racing V12 Vantage GT3 #7
- 2017 Ram 2500 Power Wagon
- 1968 Holden HK Monaro GTS 327
- 2018 Dodge Durango SRT
The Chiron may represent the absolute peak of performance of the internal-combustion engine, especially when you consider the astounding engineering feats that have gone into its construction. The Chiron has four turbos, ten radiators; it can achieve an electronically-limited top speed of 261 mph, and can consume its 26.4 gallon fuel tank in less than seven minutes. Sure, the Chiron can launch from 100-200 mph with what feels like the accelerating force of a ballistic missile, but this Bugatti hypercar is also renowned for outstanding handling, thanks in part to the all-new carbon-fiber monocoque chassis. There are many more statistics to consider, but the best way to experience this milestone in automotive engineering is to drive it.
2018 Kia Stinger
When Korean carmaker Kia tries to butt heads with the Germans, the Kia Stinger proves they don’t pull any punches. First off, the “point” of the Stinger comes straight from former BMW M-division head Albert Biermann, who has been leading the company’s charge into performance vehicles. You can also thank Peter Schreyer – formerly of Audi and Volkswagen – for the Stinger’s sharp looks. The Stinger’s looks may grab you, but the real knock-out is in the way it drives. Rear-wheel-drive and a 365-horsepower, twin-turbo V6 places the Stinger head-to-head against the renowned European sport sedans. This Stinger is Kia’s statement that they can do more than bring affordability to the car market; they are out to prove that refined performance is not the sole purview of Europe.
2016 Audi #17 Rotek Racing TT RS
The Pikes Peak International Hillclimb is one of the most historic and iconic American racing challenges. Since 1916 racers have been taking on the mountain road that stretches 12.42 miles and climbs in elevation nearly 5,000 feet to the peak at 14,110 feet. Robb Holland took his VLN (Veranstaltergemeinschaft Langstreckenpokal Nürburgring) spec Rotek Racing TTRS to Pikes Peak with the intention of setting a new front-wheel-drive record. This is an endurance racer with long gearing for the Green Hell’s long straights. The team did not modify it for the record attempt. With just 380-horsepower – which according to Holland, dwindled to around 250 at altitude– the team met their goal and set a new FWD record time of 10:56.878, shattering the previous record by nearly a minute.
2017 Aston Martin Racing V12 Vantage GT3 #7
The Aston Martin brand was founded on motorsport when Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford began racing specials at Aston Hill near Aston Clinton in 1913. Since then, the manufacturer has competed in and won countless races. Aston Martin Racing has won more than fifty races since returning to competition in 2004. Those wins have come across all classes they have competed in, with a high point being a win at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in GTE-AM in 2017. The team went on to win the FIA-WEC GTE-AM class title in 2017 as well. Danish driver Christina Nielsen raced the #7 TRG-Aston Martin Racing V12 Vantage in the GTA class in World Challenge in its Royal Purple/Orion livery. She is just one of the drivers that continue to make this prestigious brand respected both on the track and off.
2017 Ram 2500 Power Wagon
The workhorse of the Ram line has a history that dates back to 1946 as the first civilian four-by-four truck. The new Power Wagon carries on that legendary role with the aid of new technology like a detachable anti-roll bar and the Articulink system that increases axle range of motion 26 inches at the front wheels. At more than 7,000 pounds this is a heavy-weight contender in every aspect. To move all that mass, you will of course find a HEMI with more than 400-horsepower, more than enough for any job, on the track of off.
1968 Holden HK Monaro GTS 327
If you love Australian muscle cars, the HK Monaro GTS is probably the one you want. It brought the Chevy 327 V8 into the Monaro line and it was the first Holden to win at the monumental Bathurst race. Bruce McPhee drove his to the race, drove all but one lap – his co-driver Barry Mullholland put in one lap while McPhee ate lunch -- won, then drove it home. It was the first Holden muscle car, it had the fast and sexy lines to go with its racing proven excellence, it had a four on the floor, and front-disc brakes. It took gusto to race a car like this at Mount Panorama, and even though performance is what you expect from the late 1960s, there is a heart and soul that bred a generation of Chevy-powered Holden fans.
2018 Dodge Durango SRT
The SRT Durango with its 6.4-liter HEMI does more than haul passengers; it just plain hauls. Proven at Virginia International Raceway, the SRT team tested performance upgrades that delivered faster laps. This Durango is not built for water-crossings or puddle-jumping; it’s built to show its stuff on the street or the track. The Dodge Street and Racing Technology division has a habit of doing more than just delivering more horsepower than you can shake a stick at, they create a whole package that transforms a full-size SUV into a track-devouring monster.
