The only thing that could possibly make a car pack better for Forza Horizon would be a wacky waving inflatable flailing tube man delivering the details to you.

Thus far, we have hammered out info regarding the rally expansion and the free Honda Challenge Car Pack.

Today, we shall delve into the upcoming "January Recaro Car Pack" DLC.

1983 GMC Vandura G-1500

Forza Dec. 26th


One of the most versatile vehicles in “Forza Horizon,” the GMC Vandura is undoubtedly a fan favorite. From throwing its bulk around in multiplayer online games to being an ideal canvas for Forza painters, the Vandura can do it all. The Vandura’s versatility has endeared it to automotive fans for decades. So dress it up with your favorite livery then roll the streets of Carson to let everyone know: the van is back!
2012 Cadillac Escalade ESV

Forza Dec. 26th


For some, owning an Escalade is synonymous with saying, “I’ve arrived.” Big, luxurious, and reveling in ostentatious style, the Escalade is as in your face as it is difficult to find a parking place for. Whether you are looking for something to take on a road trip on the hundreds of miles of open road in “Forza Horizon’s” Colorado, or looking for an intimidating ride to fill up your opponent’s rear view mirror, the Escalade fits the bill.
2012 Lotus Exige S

Forza Dec. 26th


For 2012, the Exige S gained some mass, adding a little over 500 pounds to its otherwise feather-light curb weight. Thankfully most of that weight is due to the much larger V6 that delivers more than a hundred additional horsepower. The Exige S is nimble as ever but delivers significantly faster acceleration and a much higher top speed than the base Exige, making this driver’s car even more appealing to performance fanatics.
2012 Lexus LFA Nürburgring Edition

Forza Dec. 26th


With only fifty units planned for production, the LFA Nürburgring Edition is a rare bird; a specially track tuned edition aimed at potential owners who intend on driving their LFA competitively. The “Forza Horizon” edition doesn’t come with a free night at Motorsport Hotel Nürburgring like the real one does, but it does include the bump in horsepower, Recaro race seats, a recalibrated closer shifting transmission, and a fixed rear wing. The result is a car that’s as unforgettable behind the wheel as it is when you watch it pass by.
2005 Mercedes-Benz SLR

Forza Dec. 26th


This carbon fiber constructed, 617-horsepower exotic sport-GT is the product of the relationship between Mercedes-Benz and McLaren. The result is nothing less than astounding--lightning quick acceleration, optimum weight distribution, and unparalleled safety. The SLR is refined and stylish, but let’s not forget that barely tamed AMG twin screw powerplant, which is the heart and soul of this angry beast.
1995 Ford Mustang Cobra R

Forza Dec. 26th


A good sign of a car’s track potential is when you have to show a valid racing license to order one. Such was the case with the Cobra R. First, the folks at Ford’s Special Vehicle Tuning group lightened the new Mustang wherever possible then they dropped in an SVT-tuned, 5.8-liter Windsor V8. Brake cooling ducts replaced the fog lights and the suspension was improved to keep up with the potential of the 300 horsepower under the hood. Pull up to any stoplight and anyone who recognizes the distinctive shape of its proud hood will surely not even try. If they do you can easily make them pay for their foolishness by choking on your tire smoke and exhaust fumes.
2009 Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster—Season Pass bonus car

Forza Dec. 26th


Pagani hand crafts some of the finest super cars in the world. For those who want to let the wind blow back their hair at up to 217 mph, the Cinque Roadster is the perfect choice. Built of carbon-titanium—that’s carbon fiber weaved with titanium strands—the Cinque is lightweight and strong. Thanks to the massive intake’s location just above the cockpit, the rush of air combined with the bespoke Iconel and titanium exhaust bellows a glorious V12 chorus. Only five were built, so driving one in Forza Horizon will be the closest most will ever come to the real thing.
