It’s time to see how Bone Shaker fares when it lines up against a Ferrari LaFerrari

Hot Wheels has been making the headlines left and right these days. That’s not an accident because the Mattel-owned toy car maker is on the tail-end of its 50th-anniversary celebration. Today, Hot Wheels is in the news because of a new car pack for Forza Motorsport 7. It’s called the Hot Wheels Anniversary Pack, and it includes some of the most iconic Hot Wheels cars in the toy company’s history. The Hot Wheels Anniversary Pack will be available on November 6 as part of Forza 7’s November update.

To be clear, the Forza and Hot Wheels partnership didn’t just fall out of a tree recently.

The two sides have collaborated in the past, most notably in the form of previous car and expansion packs for Forza Motorsport and Forza Horizon games. This time, though, Hot Wheels is going all-out with its 50th-anniversary celebration, and it’s bringing out some of its best creations for the occasion.

The new How Wheels Anniversary Pack includes seven Hot Wheels vehicles, a lot of which you’re all familiar with. There’s the 1969 Hot Wheels Chevrolet Camaro Super Sport Coupe 50th Anniversary Edition, the 1970 Hot Wheels Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1 50th Anniversary Edition, and the 1963 Hot Wheels Volkswagen Beetle 50th Anniversary Edition.

A 2005 Hot Wheels Ford Mustang is also part of the pack, as is a 1969 Hot Wheels Twin Mill. Then there’s the creme de la creme. The last two cars included in the Hot Wheels Anniversary Pack are arguably two of the most famous Hot Wheels creations in recent memory: the 2011 Hot Wheels Bone Shaker and the 2017 Hot Wheels Rip Rod.

The seven new Hot Wheels cars are the highlights of the pack, but they’re far from the only contents that you can download on Forza 7.

You also get five new Hot Wheels Driver Gear suits that you can earn starting this month. These aren’t just normal suits, either. These are five decade-specific suits from the 1950s all the way up to the 2000s. As an added gift, you’ll also get a special 50th anniversary Driver Gear suit. You can earn all these suits by completing in-game challenges.

If you own Forza Horizon 4 instead of Forza 7, then you’re in luck, too. Over the next few weeks, a new collection of Hot Wheels cars will also be available in FH4. That’s right. You don’t need to buy Forza 7 to enjoy the 2011 Hot Wheels Bone Shaker, the 2017 Hot Wheels Rip Rod, the 2005 Hot Wheels Ford Mustang, and the 1969 Hot Wheels Twin Mill. All of them will arrive in Forza Horizon 4, or at least three of them will. You can already acquire the 1969 Hot Wheels Twin Mill if you win the “Blast From the Past” Season Event.

It’s Hot Wheels fever in the world of Forza, ladies and gentlemen.
