Forza Motorsport is a racing video game made specifically for the XBox game console. It was brought out on May 3, 2005 and marked the beginning of the Forza revolution. Since then, Microsoft has released two other versions with Forza 4 currently under development. Forza Motorsport features 231 cars ranging from Honda Civic and Ford Focus models to Ferrari Enzo and Audi R8 models.
Forza Horizon will be making its official debut on October 23rd, but until that happens, Turn 10 Studios is providing us with a series of videos showing behind the scenes images of the upcoming game.
In Episode One, you get to meet some of the creators of the game and learn what makes Forza Horizon such an incredible new expression of the Forza series. The video also presents the beauty that is Colorado, the unadulterated joy that is night racing, and lots of cool details to whet your appetite for the game.
To say that we’ve been waiting for this car pack to arrive can be construed as a massive understatement. If you’re wondering why, look no further than the featured car of Forza 4’s September Car Pack: The SRT Viper GTS-R .
Back in June, we got to play around with the SRT Viper - included in the June pack - in the game. Now, though, things get a little juicier with the inclusion of the SRT Viper GTS-R that competed in the ALMS series over the summer into Forza’s latest car pack. Both cars, #91 and #93, have been added to the game, which means that we can have double the fun destroying the competition with these two venomous bad boys finally in the game.
It’s that time of the month again when fans of Forza 4 wait with breathless anticipation to see what new car pack the people from Turn 10 Studios will release for the game. Well, the August Car Pack has just been released and true to what has now become a monthly wait, the new DLC content comes with plenty of muscle...both new AND old.
Before you check out the full teaser and a batch of photos of the cars in the DLC, it was be mentioned that anybody looking to download the pack will have to shell out $7. Not a bad price to pay if it means you can bring your muscle car wars to Forza 4.
Forza Motorsports players will have the possibility to further enrich their garages with 10 more cars thanks to the addition of a new Meguiar’s DLC car pack. The new pack is priced at 560 Microsoft Points.
The Meguiar’s DLC car pack will offer a mix of classic elegance and modern power, and combines cars from nearly the entire spectrum of the automotive history going from 1940 to 2012. Players will enjoy some of the most prominent ALMS race cars in recent history, some classic untouchable convertibles, several pre-war coupes, supercars, and more.
Everyone is celebrating 4th of July in his own personal way. And while you are used with fireworks, lots of festivities and picnics, Forza Motorsport is offering their players a new package that will bring to your garage some of the most amazing cars out there.
The most impressive ones are of course the Hornet and the XK120, but all ten cars featured in this package have their own special place in automotive history. Limited production cars most of us will never see in person are paired with classic speed so shapely it will make you wince.
The new Forza Motorsport package cn be yours for 560 MS points.

Last month, Turn 10 Studios dropped the first screenshot and the cover box for the upcoming Forza Horizon game. Now, the company is offering up the first trailer, as well as a series of new screenshots for the game set to be released on October 23rd, 2012.
Here’s how Turn 10 Studios describes the game: "The moment you put your hands to the controller to play the Forza Horizon E3 2012 demo, you know you’re about to experience something special. After all, Forza Horizon is a new take on the Forza franchise; an open-world action racing game that transports players to the epic open roads of Colorado. It’s where gear-heads mix with hipster kids in a clashing cacophonous clamor of V12 engines and driving beats."
Forza 4 already has enough Porsche vehicles to make the heads of even its most ardent fans spin in confusion. But even with all the Porsche bombardment, Turn 10 Studios still believes that you can’t have too many of these virtual German prancers in your video game.
So they did something that, if not expected, can be construed as inevitable: release a Porsche Expansion Pack.
Forza 4’s latest downloadable content will include 20 of the most iconic Porsche models to have met the pavement. The pack dropped on the Xbox LIVE network on May 22, 2012 costing 1,600 MS Points for the opportunity to access 30 new cars and 20 new career events, among other new other features.
Of the 30 that will be available in the pack, we’ve singled out a few of our favorite models: the 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder, the 1987 Porsche 959, the 2007 Porsche #80 Flying Lizard 911 GT3-RSR, and the 2012 Porsche 911 GT2 RS.
The pack is everything a Porsche fan could possibly ask for in a video game. If you don’t want to take our word for it, take Turn 10 Studios’, who said in a statement that “this is the kind of news that deserves to be shouted from the rooftops: Porsche is returning to Forza Motorsport.”

Turn 10 Studios is preparing the next chapter in the Forza Motorsport history books with a new Horizon version. Forza Horizon will debut in Fall 2012 for the Xbox 360, and we already have an insight into the game with the box cover and first screenshot of the future game.
No other details have been provided, but the screenshot reveals that the new generation SRT Viper will be a part of the action when the game hits the shelves. The company has also announced that the new Forza Horizon will ditch simulated racing in favor of arcade action in order to one-up other famous racing games currently on the market.
"Forza Horizon combines the automotive thrills that Forza fans expect with a gorgeous open-road world that begs to be explored. "Our goal is to turn gamers into car lovers, and car lovers into gamers," Forza 4 director Dan Greenawalt said. "This is part of our DNA. That’s why we’ve been working on this series for more than 10 years. Our goal is to take people who play Skyrim and Call of Duty and make them in racing game players. That is why I come to work every day."
Forza Motorsport’s latest Top Gear Pack comes with some of the most amazing supercars in the world, including the 1200 HP Hennessey Venom GT . It was only released on May 1st, but an avid gamer has already posted a video on YouTube showing off a pretty impressive "test drive" of the Venom GT.
With 1200 HP under the hood, the Venom GT was taken to an impressive 260 mph in a straight line. By comparison, Hennessey announced a top speed of 275 mph, so the stats from the game came pretty close! The Venom GT is powered by a supercharged 6.2 liter LS9 V8 engine, the same one used in the Corvette ZR1 . The supercar features lightweight carbon fiber bodywork and carbon fiber wheels, a programmable traction control system, CFD (computational fluid dynamic) tested bodywork, an active aero system with adjustable rear wing, and an adjustable suspension system, all in a 2,685 lb package.
The Hennessey Venom GT is limited to only 6 units in the world, so Forza 4 may be the only place where we actually have the opportunity to drive one. Let us know your results in the game! Can you beat this amazing top speed?
