Turn 10 Studios Drops a New IGN Pack for Forza 5

For all of the attention being paid to Gran Turismo 6 , Forza 5 must be feeling pretty left out. So, in an attempt to steal some of the spotlight back, game developer Turn 10 Studios has released a new downloadable content for the Xbox game, called the IGN Car Pack.

Made up of 10 very diverse models, the IGN Car Pack features a wide variety of rides ranging from old supercars like the 1957 Ferrari 250 California , the 2002 Ferrari 575M Maranello and the Lamborghini Reventon , to present-day makes like the 2013 Caterham Superlight R500 , and the 2014 Mercedes A45 AMG ), and old-school classics like the 1977 Ford Escort RS1800, the 1964 Chevrolet Impala SS 409, the 1969 Nissan Fairlady Z 432 , and the 1984 Peugeot 205 T16.

There’s a lot to like about the list, although we would’ve liked to seen a bigger list than the one the IGN Car Pack has. If anything, Turn 10 Studios needs to get its game up to another level because its nemesis, Gran Turismo 6, is doing it these days in spades.

2008 Lamborghini Reventon

Lamborghini Reventón

To say that the Lamborghini Reventon was ahead of its time back when it first debuted in 2006 would be a massive understatement. The truth was, it represented the finest piece of Lamborghini engineering at that time, and almost eight years after it first arrived, it’s still talked about with the same level of reverence very few Lambos carry with them.

Inspired by modern aeronautics, the Reventon had a sharp design that was distinctly a master craft of Lamborghini. Couple that with the supercar’s 6.5-liter, V-12 engine that developed 650 horsepower and you have an exotic that’s still held in high regard to this very day.
