In support of the release of Furious 7 last week, Universal Studios has once again teamed up with game developer Turn 10 Studios to produce a new car pack for Forza Horizon 2. Exclusive to the Xbox One, this $5 download is currently available on Xbox Live and includes seven new F&F’ed speed machines ranging from high-end exotics, to muscle cars, to off-roaders.

So what cars do you get? A full list would encompass the 1970 Dodge Charger R/T, 1970 Plymouth Cuda, 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, 2014 Maserati Ghibli S, 1970 Plymouth Road Runner, 2015 Dodge Charger R/T, and the 2015 Dodge Challenger. April’s bonus car of the month is the 1998 Toyota Supra, which is available to all FH2 players at no cost. Each of the above-mentioned vehicles is fully decked out to F&F specifications and comes with high attention to detail. For example, you’ll find bash bars on the ’15 Challenger and can watch the blower work with the throttle on the ’70 Charger.

One final note: this new car pack comes on the heels of a free standalone expansion (Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious) slated to receive a $10 price tag on April 10th. Download it now before it costs money.

Why it matters

While the Fast & Furious franchise is pretty much the ideal breeding ground for video game fun, I’m glad it’s turning to an established gaming platform like Forza Horizon 2 instead of trying to come up with something entirely original. It’s not that I think a new Fast & Furious game wouldn’t have potential – rather, I believe a venture that sees F&F gloss added to something as solid as FH2 is sure to be a success.

That being said, I’d also like to see some new racing elements added that mimic scenes from the movies, especially if I have to pay to play. How about starting an event with a parachute drop from a C-130, or precision driving along the rim of a cliff?

Of course, I’m just like all the other spoiled gamers out there – I want it all, I want it now and I want it for free.

Car Pack in detail

1970 Dodge Charger R/T

Here it is, the beast from the first movie. The 426 Hemi under the hood has been beefed up to nearly 900 horsepower thanks a humungous, chromed-out blower sticking out of the hood. Coilover suspension components, 18-inch wheels, and drag radials enable frame-twisting 60-foot wheelies, while a four-wheel disc brake upgrade might help you avoid that truck past the train tracks (or not).

1970 Plymouth Cuda

From the factory, the Cuda could run a 14-second quarter mile, making it one of the quicker muscle cars of its time. This particular example, however, is packing 600 horsepower, blessing it with far more straight-line potential. The exterior is upgraded as well, with taillights and a nose swapped in from the later ’73 model.

2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

One of the best things about open-world racing sims is the ability to go anywhere, and behind the wheel of this earth-crushing 4x4, that idea takes on a whole new meaning. The exterior is plated in bulletproof armor, the wheel and tire package can crawl over mountains, and the turbodiesel engine helps it keep pace with the more street-centric sports cars. Destructible doodads – you’re officially on notice.

2014 Maserati Ghibli S

What’s a movie car pack without the baddy’s ride? With a 400-horsepower twin-turbo V-6 engine and looks to kill, this Italian four-door tourer combines luxury with performance into a single cohesive package. Beware the trident.

1970 Plymouth Road Runner

Tons of speed at a low cost – that was the formula for this iconic muscle car. A functional “Air-grabber” induction system can be seen popping out of the hood to feed the massive 426 Hemi engine lying beneath, while the taillights are the only things left when it gets a heavy right foot.

2015 Dodge Charger R/T

With so many old-school dragsters on the docket, you’d expect a splash of new blood for comparison’s sake. The new Charger R/T brings a 5.7-liter V-8 making 370 horsepower to the party, so you should have no problem getting up to speed, while the sport-tuned suspension means you can actually turn every so often too. Plus, the four doors make it practical, no matter if you’re on a school run or major international heist. Who said you had to sacrifice real-world usability for performance?

2015 Dodge Challenger

With a big spoiler out back and steel bash bars up front, this Challenger is a force to be reckoned with on the road. Driven by Letty in the movie, it’s a black and green slab of American iron tuned to the exacting requirements of a Fast & Furious lifestyle. Don’t worry if you hit something – just keep the throttle pinned, and I’m sure it’ll sort itself out.

1998 Toyota Supra

While not be-stickered or slathered in orange paint, this Supra is still every ounce the Japanese icon venerated in the movies. The 2JZ engine is legendary for making absurd amounts of power, while the RWD chassis is capable of making mincemeat of any corner. The new Supra is years away, but that’s all right. The old one still stands as one of the best performance platforms on pavement.
