Do you recall a while back when Microsoft teamed up with Universal to bring the racing world of Fast and Furious to Forza Horizon 2? The game was offered as a free title for several weeks as a promotional tie-in with Furious 7, and the campaign turned out to be a big success for both parties. Well, why let the team-up end there?
Microsoft has announced that it will be bringing a ten-pack of vehicles from the latest Furious movie, The Fate of the Furious, to Forza Motorsport 7 as a downloadable pack. The collection was put together in collaboration with Universal Brand Development, and will be available for players who have purchased either the Deluxe or Ultimate Editions of Forza Motorsport 7 at the time of its launch. For those that didn’t purchase those editions, the pack can still be bought for $9.99.
We’ve broken down the ten-pack of cars that are included in the game in the attached gallery, so you can see what kind of sweet rides you’re in for!
1966 Chevrolet Corvette The Fate of the Furious Edition
This C2 Stingray was built to emulate the autocross and chase down cones with the best from the modern era. Underneath the period-correct fender flares you will find a lot of rubber and an independent rear suspension that delivers tons of grip. Given its lightened and strengthened chassis, the 400 horsepower transferred through a Muncie four-speed should provide the perfect package for straightening out any set of curves you may encounter.prevnext
1968 Dodge Charger The Fate of the Furious Edition
This fully modified ice racing version of Dominic Toretto’s favorite car has little left of your typical Charger. In fact, only the roof and pillars are stock. This chunk of American muscle has been widened to accommodate its 18-inch tires that fight for traction with the help of a custom all-wheel-drive system and ridiculous steering angle that would make even a drifter drop their jaw. Under the hood is a Chevrolet LS motor with more than enough juice to keep it sideways. Naturally the entire car has been reinforced and fortified for battle. Even though you might not need to dodge bullets in Forza, this Charger’s look will surely strike fear in the heart of any competitor.prevnext
2015 Jaguar F-TYPE R Coupe The Fate of the Furious Edition
It’s no surprise to find Deckard Shaw driving another gorgeous modern coupe from his homeland of England. In Furious 7 he rolled an Aston Martin DB9 and in The Fate of the Furious he is behind the wheel of this elegant and powerful Jaguar F-TYPE. The car is appropriately presented in British green and fits its driver to a tee. Of course the 550 horsepower super-charged V8 gives Deckard the edge to hang with the fastest cars of his team mates.prevnext
1971 Plymouth GTX The Fate of the Furious Edition
The GTX marked the end of the muscle car era and was one of the last models to offer the early Hemi engine. The 383 under the hood is all grunt; one listen will tell you it means business. That makes for the kind of ominous and powerful presence you expect. How much horsepower is under the hood? Let your right foot do the talking and you will undoubtedly be impressed.prevnext
2016 Subaru WRX STI The Fate of the Furious Edition
In the real world and in the world of The Fate of the Furious, the Subaru WRX STI is a staple, hence this beautiful and highly-modified wide body STI. With its humongous, awesome wing, and full racing cage, it’s plain to see that this car driven briefly by Little Nobody means business. That downforce and chassis stiffness can only make a car with massive grip even better. No, that white paintjob doesn’t stand for innocence; in fact, car was purpose-built to take to the streets with a vengeance.prevnext
2018 Dodge Demon The Fate of the Furious Edition
The Dodge Demon really had no reason to be produced beyond making gearheads the world over grin with unabashed glee. The Demon has claimed the title of fastest 0-100 mph production car in the world. It makes for the perfect movie Mopar for Dominic Toretto, since out of the box it can destroy the quarter-mile in less than 10 seconds. While based on the Challenger model, there is little left of the original by the time the chassis is imbued with its Demon heart. The 840 horsepower from the optional crate package (808 stock) are supported by the Demon’s amazing drivetrain and suspension that help get all that power to the pavement. Burnouts are of course second nature, but given proper technique, this monster will launch like a Saturn rocket down any straight brazen enough to challenge it.prevnext
1951 Chevrolet Fleetline Special The Fate of the Furious Edition
Due to trade embargoes begun in the 1950s, Cuba’s one-of-a-kind car culture is literally a thing of the past, where post-war Chevys like the Fleetline are still king. This has forced some ingenious service-life-prolonging tactics to keep those cars on the road, which has also made the country a real-life time capsule for cars. When Dominic Toretto is challenged to a street race by a local with a heavily modified 1955 Ford Fairlane, he must get innovative to make his Fleetline – affectionately deemed “the slowest car in Havana” – competitive. This Chevy is all but stripped to the chassis and endowed with a huge Garrett turbo from a marine engine. Running 30 pounds of boost, and a few other hacked together modifications gives Toretto a serious street weapon. Give this rusty beast a run at the strip to feel the power for yourself.prevnext
2015 Mercedes-AMG GT S The Fate of the Furious Edition
The gull-wing doors are about all that is amiss in this SLS-inpired AMG GT S. Take one look at its low sleek lines backed by the performance of a twin-turbo V8 and you will find the perfect match for The Fate of the Furious family member Tej Parker. Rolling in high style in the New York scene, Tej puts the power and style to good use for the team. Whether you drive this super coupe for the way it makes you feel or the wins it can put under your belt is up to you.prevnext
2013 Subaru BRZ The Fate of the Furious Edition
Even though the modifications to this Subaru BRZ for The Fate of the Furious were minor, it still stands out as an immaculate ride. The fact that three of the four cars built for the movie survived is a testament to the proven performance of the model. Little Nobody had the pleasure of driving it first in the film. Now it is your turn.prevnext
2014 Local Motors Rally Fighter The Fate of the Furious Edition0comments
The Local Motors Rally Fighter is the perfect vehicle straight from the low-volume, open-source design factory. Driven by Letty Ortiz for the astounding ice lake scene in The Fate of the Furious, the buggy-like build with massive tires and Chevy LS power under the hood is the perfect match. Far from stock, this Rally Fighter is equipped with a massive push bar and lighting that could illuminate the dark side of the moon. Just like its driver, this rig is ready to do battle on any surface, anytime.
