Forza 7 seems to be in a competition with itself to find the silliest name it can come up with for its monthly car packs. Last month we had the Doritos Car Pack, which has just been one-upped by January’s offering which is sponsored by frozen pizza roll brand, Totino’s. Don’t let that put you off the content though, because the pack contains some interesting left-field vehicles, especially when it comes to the race cars.
One of those is the Elise GT1 - Lotus’ answer to the super-popular GT1 category of the late 1990s. It was way off the pace of Mercedes CLK-GTR and McLaren F1 GTR, but hey, it looked damn good.
Then there’s the Nissan R380 II, a sports-prototype from the late 1960s which mainly raced in Japan. It wasn’t quite up to the performance of the Porsches of the day but was fast enough to set several speed records.
If modern racers are more your thing then there’s also the Team RLL BMW M6 GTLM that raced in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship in 2017.
At the other end of the scale, however, are a couple of cars which fall into the category of ‘amusingly slow’. One of those is the venerable Citroen 2CV and the other is Subaru’s first ever car, the 360.
With barely 40bhp between them you won’t exactly be threatening to beat Stefan Bellof’s lap record at the Nordschleife. However, they don’t weigh a lot and Forza lets you perform engine swaps, which could be interesting…
Rounding out the pack is a Volkswagen Type 3 1600L and a 1993 Porsche 911 Turbo S ‘Leichtbau’ - the ultimate iteration of the 964 generation of 911. Here’s a rundown of the full list of cars:
- 1967 Nissan R380 II
- 1967 Volkswagen Type 3 1600L
- 1968 Subaru 360
- 1970 Citroen 2CV
- 1993 Porsche 911 Turbo S ‘Leichtbau’
- 1997 Lotus Elise GT1
- 2017 Team RLL BMW M6 GTLM #24
If paying for DLC isn’t your thing then don’t worry, because there’s a couple of free cars, too. The 2019 Hyundai Veloster was revealed a couple of days ago and both the regular Turbo model and the high-performance ‘N’ version have been added to the game.
Both the Hyundai Velosters and the Totino’s Car Pack are available to download now.
