In Forza Horizon 3
, players were able to acquire custom built special model vehicles that were known as Forza Edition cars. These cars will be making their return in Forza Motorsport 7
and they've been fine-tuned by the developers at Turn 10, taking into account everything from the power-to-weight ratio to specific suspension settings. The 2017 Forza Edition Ford GT is just one of the confirmed Forza Edition cars.
The Ford GT was created to fulfill the most auspicious destiny in the world of motorsport – claiming victory at Le Mans. Marking the 50th anniversary of the original Ford GT 40’s victory, the new Ford GT was built to prove that Ford can still dominate at the highest level of sports car racing. The production model GT is the starting point for homologation from which endurance racing provenance is borne. Take one look, or one listen, or one drive, and the character of a champion is obvious. Throughout the carved aerodynamics and gloriously sculptured form, players will find active elements and static design that create not only unique allure, but massive downforce. Within, technology abounds in adjustable suspension and drivetrain settings that put 647 EcoBoost twin-turbo driven horsepower to the massive rear wheels. Ford Performance set the bar high when they reinvented the GT, and of course both destiny and expectations were exceeded with not only the victory they sought, but the awe of the lucky 1,000 owners who are lucky enough to own them.
As well as standing out from the crowd, the Forza Edition vehicles will include built-in multipliers that increase your credit rewards for racing and winning, as well as increasing the amount of XP gained while driving it. The vehicles will be available as in-game rewards through the Forza Drivers Cup single player campaign or the #Forzathon events. They'll be available for purchase through the Auction House too, a feature that's also making its return in FM7.
Both the Deluxe and Ultimate editions of the game include VIP membership, which allows players a head start on their Forza Edition collection. The "VIP Car Pack" includes five Forza Edition vehicles: the 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Super Sport Forza Edition, the 2013 Ram Runner Forza Edition, the 2012 Nissan GTR Forza Edition, the 1992 Ford Escort RS Forza Edition, and the 2014 BMW M4 Forza Edition.
Alongside confirmation of the vehicles and auction house comes a handful of new screenshots showing a variety of vehicles on the track:
You'll be able to drive your Forza Edition vehicles when the game is released on October 3rd.
