Forza Horizon DLC Heading this Way

By SgtDigglesworth, 4 years ago
Alright all you car afficianados out there, some new DLC is headed your way in regards to the recently released Forza Horizon.

Titled the "Bondurant Car Pack", the new DLC will feature a total of six new cars:

2012 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Spyder Performante
FHNovember 4th

When building what is clearly one of the top open-top sports in the world, what are its defining characteristics? There are the obvious: speed, power, and elegance; categories that the Lamborghini Gallardo LP-570-4 Spyder Performante has in spades. Then there is the unseen and the unexpected. Weight, for example, can be a burdensome in a roadster; Lamborghini has addressed this in the Performante by reducing the cars weight by 143 pounds. At 3,274 pounds overall, this is the lightest open-top Lamborghini ever. To make it so, the use of carbon-fiber is extensive, from the door panels to the center tunnel cover. Its Alcantara-wrapped interior and trapezoidal, three-dimensional front bumper make it stand out from its slightly lesser cousin the Gallardo Spyder. Whether it is just a glance or a thorough high speed test, the Performante defines itself.
2012 Shelby 1000

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the original Shelby Cobra, the Shelby 1000 was designed as a present and tribute to Carroll Shelby from Shelby American. Only 100 will be built. The Shelby 1,000 is not just a Mustang with immense horsepower, it is an entirely custom-built machine. From its completely reworked 5.4-liter with ported cylinder heads, and 3.6-liter supercharger to the Eibach adjustable suspension, it is really only a Mustang in form and basic substance. At a glance it resembles any other GT500 until one looks close enough to notice the reflective decal denoting it as a “Shelby 1000.” The subtlety is part of the design, as Shelby wanted the 1000 to “fly under the radar, rather than announced it has arrived.” Behind the wheel it will be obvious to anyone as soon as the conservatively rated 950 horsepower beast is unleashed.
2010 BMW M3 GTS

The ultimate factory M3 comes with more in all the right departments and less wherever it made sense for a street-legal track car. Instead of the standard M3 4.0 liter V8, the M3 GTS has “more” in the form of its high-revving 4.4 liter V8, which gives it 40 more horsepower. There are also more gears in the seven-speed, dual-clutch, M DCT transmission. To accommodate the significant weight of the high-tech automated-manual, weight was shaved by deleting air-conditioning, removing the back seat, and lightening everything from the rear windows to the sound insulation. Designed for the track, the M3 GTS comes with an adjustable suspension, a roll bar, and a front splitter and rear wing which can both be adjusted. Since the audio system was deleted as well, appreciating the screaming V8 is now all the more simple.
1965 Shelby Cobra 427 S/C
FhNovemeber4th

Upon winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans for Aston Martin in 1959, Carroll Shelby quit racing and came home to America to build his own race car. By 1965 his Ford small-block-powered AC Cobra had achieved considerable racing success and Ford chief engineer Ken Miles offered Shelby the even larger 427 FE engine. The goal was to race in the SCCA’s A production class and compete with the Corvette Grand Sport. After redesigning the chassis to accommodate the big block, and upgrading the brakes and suspension, the 427 Cobra was put into Shelby’s competition production line. One hundred were to be built for homologation, but production was stopped at 53 once difficulties with the FIA ensued. Some were sold to private race teams, the others were marketed as “the fastest streetcar in the world.” Of all the Shelby Cobra variants, the 427 S/C—Semi-Competition—is the most desirable. They are nothing less than a purpose-built race car converted at the last minute for street use.
1994 Nissan 240SX SE
FhNovemeber4th

If you are looking to build a drift car, look no further, the 240SX is the standard bearer. Due to its high availability, low cost, lightweight body, long wheelbase, and ample power it’s hard to beat as a starting point. Not to be confused with its JDM counterpart the Silvia, the 240SX and its KA powerplants were not turbocharged, whereas the Silvia’s SR20DE could be. As a staple of the drift community, the 240SX has contributed to the careers of many professional drift drivers and given cause to thousands wanting to experience the thrill of sliding sideways. Whether you are drifting for points or style, or just hooning it up, the 240SX is waiting to be your partner in fighting for grip on the open roads of Horizon.
2012 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon
FhNovemeber4th

Truly at home on the gravel and dirt surfaces of the back roads of Forza Horizon’s Colorado, the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon is as rugged as they come. Sure, the newest Wrangler has the most amenities of any before it, but it also comes with the surefootedness of a locking rear-differential and Dana 44’s. While you may not be fording streams or climbing boulders, the Wrangler’s wide track and powerful Pentastar V6 will pull it swiftly through corners. If you are looking to show your outdoorsy side or want a durable rig for a little Cat & Mouse, the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon is worth rolling.
The "Bondurant Car Pack" will be available on November 6th for 400 MSP and each individual car will cost 240 MSP. The 2012 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon will be the free sample car this month.

The November DLC will be included for those that own the Forza Horizon season pass. Gamers can still purchase the season pass for 4000 MSP.
