Regarding new content, the Porsche Spotlight Cars has been added as free content to current owners of the game and brings the 917/20, aka the “Pink Pig” alongside the 2019 911 GT3 RS. Both cars will be made available for download at no additional cost to players.
Alongside these two free additions comes the Top Gear Car Pack, a new DLC containing seven significant cars from the history of the automobile, has chosen by both the team at Top Gear and Turn 10 Studios themselves, more details of which can be found below:
2017 Ferrari 812 Superfast
In the mid-1960s Ferrari produced 36 Superfast super coupes for some of the world’s elite car lovers. That V12 made nearly 400 hp and reached a top speed of 175 mph. Now, that Superfast namesake is represented in the replacement for the outgoing F12 model. The front-mounted V12 now makes nearly 800 hp, with a gloriously deafening 8,900 RPM redline that will push the new Superfast to 60 mph in less than three seconds and blast its way to a 211 mph top speed. The 812 Superfast is a triple threat – well-appointed, beautiful, and capable of astonishing performance. In other words, it’s another wonderous addition to the Ferrari legacy.
2018 McLaren 720 S
2017 Vuhl 05RR
2018 Exomotive Exocet Sport V8 XP-5
Anyone can tell you the Mazda Miata checks all the boxes for fun and performance. The Exomotive Exocet chassis takes all that goodness of the Miata and offers a way to convert it to an entirely new level of performance. Using the latest CAD and Finite Element Analysis, the engineers at Exocet offer a reinforced exoskeleton chassis that utilizes a donor Miata’s components to create the ultimate track-going go-kart. In the Sport V8 XP-5 dress, you have Chevrolet LS3 power and a T56 transmission connected to Cadillac CTS-V rear end, making the kit wickedly responsive. The resulting power-to-weight ratio puts the Exocet in the hypercar performance class. This mighty-mite will dish out a supreme helping of fun and excitement on track or anywhere you drive it.
2018 KTM X-Bow GT4
The X-Bow – that’s pronounced “cross-bow” for the record – is one of the most extreme-looking track toys out there, so one might wonder what KTM could do to take it to the next level. The answer is not always more power or less weight. The jet fighter-like canopy of the GT4 increases aerodynamics and stops your face from peeling off at high speeds. The company has made this track-only weapon more durable, decreasing racing costs and improving dependability. Since you will find the X-Bow in many of the top racing series, such as the Pirelli World Challenge or even the VLN series at the Nürburgring, knowing that the cost of winning just went down should make that path to victory that much easier to find. For those enjoying it in Forza, well, just keep putting it to the test and enjoying every mile.
1964 Porsche 904 Carrera GTS
After Porsche made a run at Formula One in the early 1960s the company returned to sportscar racing in earnest. In 1962 Ferdinand A. “Butzi” Porsche took on the designing of the new two-seat competition coupe that would replace the aging 718. The 904 utilized the same mid-engine layout of its predecessor but would be the first Porsche to use a ladder chassis and a fiberglass body. At 190-horsepower, the 2.0-liter flat-six engine was potent and reliable. The illustrious 904 went on to rack up race wins and class wins, marking the dawn of a new era for Porsche’s racing record. With fewer than 150 models built for homologation and racing, the 904 has garnered ever-increasing real-world auction prices. It’s a rare and beautiful piece of racing history that we can now all get to know much better.
1958 Alfa Romeo Giulietta
