Forza Horizon, the fifth installment in the Forza Motorsport series - was officially unveiled on October 23rd, 2012 and since then, Turn 10 Studios expanded it with tons of packages. The latest one was developed in cooperation with Top Gear and will be available now at a price of 400 MS Points. All the models in the pack can be individually ordered at a price of 240 MS Points.

The new pack includes a total of six cars: 2012 Aston Martin Vanquish , 2012 Bowler EXR S, 1998 Mercedes-Benz AMG Mercedes CLK GTR , 2011 Alfa Romeo TZ3 Stradale Zagato , 2011 Ford Transit SuperSportVan and 2002 BMW M3-GTR (available for free).

By far our favorite addition is the new Vanquish - a car that has already stolen the heart of many enthusiasts. It is powered by a 6.0-liter V-12 engine that delivers a total of 565 horsepower that sprints the car from 0 to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds and up to a top speed of 186 mph.

Hit the jump to rear Turn 10 Studio’s press release.

Honda has announced its collaboration with Forza Horizon to promote their latest Civic Coupe . Along with the new model, gamers can also enjoy two additional Honda models: a 1986 Civic Si and a Honda Performance Devel Devel opment B-Spec Rally Fit. All three models will be offered in the new Honda Challenge Car Pack starting January 15th.

Along with driving the new Honda models, the players can virtually race against Honda IndyCar driver Scott Dixon and try to beat his fastest time around the track in a 2013 Civic Si. The fastest racer will have the opportunity to meet the Indianapolis 500 winner in person and receive a custom Civic Si-themed Xbox 360 gaming console.

Another contest will begin on February 15th, 2013. To enter the competition, you will have to submit a photo taken in-game of the 2013 Civic Si. The best photo will be featured on Honda social channels and on the Honda website, and the winner will receive a custom Civic Si-themed Xbox 360 gaming console.

The folks over at Turn 10 Studios sure know how to ring in the New Year with a bang, especially when it comes to downloadable content for the Forza Horizon video game.

In addition to the previously announced Recaro Car Pack that’s set to drop in January, Turn 10 will also release the Honda Challenge Car Pack on the 15th of January. As the name evidently says, the pack will include a number of models from the Japanese automaker, including the 2013 Honda Civic Coupe , an HPD Rally Fit and a 1986 Honda Civic Si Coupe for you classic-Honda buffs.

In addition to all the Honda Civic goodness you’re getting, the pack will also include an online race against Scott Dixon, which involves you trying to upstage Dixon’s time around a track in a 2013 Civic Si for the chance to meet the racer in the flesh. A photo contest will also be part of the pack with the winner receiving a custom-wrapped Civic Si Xbox 360 console. And the best part; the Honda Challenge Car Pack is free!

Wait, it gets even better. Should you be itching for some new DLC material for Forza Horizon, and you can’t wait for the Recaro and Honda Challenge packs, you can get the Rally Expansion Pack, which comes with a five more rally cars, a seven-race series in Colorado, and new multiplayer events, among other features. If you have the Season Pass, you can download the pack for free and if you don’t, it’ll only cost you 1,600 MS Points.

Not too bad at all.

Not a month goes by without Turn 10 Studios releasing a car pack for its avid video game racers. For January, the developer of the Forza Motorsports franchise will be releasing the newest car pack for its latest video game offering: Forza Horizon.

Dubbed the “Recaro Car Pack,” the new downloadable content will include the usual smorgasbord of vehicles, highlighted by the 2012 Lexus LF-A Nürburgring Edition . In addition to the gnarly Japanese supercar, the Recaro Car Pack will also include the 2012 Lotus Exige S , the 2012 Cadillac Escalade , the 2005 Mercedes SLR, the 1995 Ford Mustang Cobra R, and, oddly enough, the 1983 GMC Vandura G-1500.

The Recaro Car Pack will go live and be up for download on January 1, 2013. As is always the case, the car pack can be had for a reasonable amount of just 400 MS Points. But if you’re a Forza Horizon Season Pass holder, you get the pack for free and on top of that, get free dibs on a 2009 Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster.

Sounds like a sweet deal to us.

Just in time for the holiday season, Turn 10 Studios is dropping the first ever expansion pack for Forza: Horizon. Judging by the list of seven new vehicles that are part of the December IGN Car Pack, you’d be a fool to let this pack go by without snagging it up.

The pack includes: the McLaren F1, the 2012 Ferrari F12berlinetta , the 2012 Aston Martin DBS , a Ford F-150 SCT Raptor, the Hummer H1 Alpha Open Top, and most intriguingly, the 2006 Ford GTX1 .

That’s the kind of list usually reserved only for fantasy garages. Now, for less money than a new pair of Air Jordans, you can own all of those exotics and have them at your complete disposable. Of course, you can only drive in the virtual world of Forza: Horizon. But, hey, that’s where the fantasy kicks in.

The December IGN Pack for Forza: Horizon will go live on December 4. Be on the lookout for it. In the meantime, check out this trailer of the pack from Turn 10 Studios. If that doesn’t get you excited, we don’t know why you even have an XBox 360 to begin with.

Turn 10 Studios is continuing its Behind The Scenes video series for Forza Horizon with the fifth episode. This series has been created in order to offer fans an inside look at how the developers behind the game continue to build engagement and content for "Forza" games.

If in the previous episodes we have met the creators of the game and learned what makes Forza Horizon such an incredible games, the fifth episode gives viewers a look at the extensive community support that is a central component of the "Forza Horizon" experience.

The game features constantly updated online multiplayer challenges and monthly DLC packs so there is always new content to try and new events to explore. In fact now everyone is waiting for the Forza Horizon Rally Expansion Pack set to arrive to Xbox LIVE on 18th December 2012.

A few weeks after dropping the first episode of its Behind The Scenes video series for Forza Horizon , Turn 10 Studios is back with the second episode.

We’re not sure what the purpose of a "Behind-The-Scenes" video series is all about, but we’re pretty excited about Forza Horizon, which, in turn, compels us to watch these video upon their release.

In the first episode, we were introduced to some of the creators of the game and learned what makes Forza Horizon such an incredible new expression of the Forza series. For episode 2, we find out why the developers decided to put the setting of the game in Colorado.

Beautiful landscapes and picturesque views notwithstanding, Colorado is perfect for a game like Forza Horizon because it focuses on true, action-packed racing on lots of wide open roads.

Just the way it should be, right?

Forza Horizon drops on shelves at the end of October with pre-orders now available. Scoop yourself up a pre-order now or risk being left out.

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.

If you can’t wait until October, the game is now available for pre-order , so you can set yourself up for getting in with the likes of the 2013 SRT Viper , the 2012 BMW M5 , the Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 , and the Ford GT , among many others.

Stay tuned, Episode Two will be available soon!

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.

In addition to the pair of Viper GTS-R’s, Forza’s September Car Pack will also include the 1968 Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale, the 1960 Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato, the 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR, and the 2011 Citroen DS4 , among others.

Check out the preview video of Forza 4’s September Car Pack!

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.

It’s also appropriate that the two faces of the August DLC pack are two muscle cars that certainly have no love lost for the other: the Ford Mustang Boss 302 and the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1.

Joining in on the fun is the new Scion FR-S , the 1989 Mercedes-Benz #63 Team Sauber-Mecedes C9 racer, the Hyundai Genesis 3.8 Coupe , and the 1962 Lincoln Continental .

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.
