Another month, another brand-new car pack arrives on Forza Horizon 3. Last month, FH3 released its Playseat Car Pack, which added the 2017 Aston Martin DB11, 2016 Cadillac ATS-V, 1985 Holden HDT VK Commodore Group A, 2016 Honda Civic Type-R, 1970 S800, 1990 Renault Alpine GTA Le Mans, and 2016 Vauxhall Corsa VXR to its roster. This month, the Forza Horizon 3 Duracell Car Pack follows a similar mix of American, import, and good-ole Aussie V8 power:
- 2017 Camaro ZL1
- 2015 Jaguar XE-S
- 1959 BMW 507
- 1992 Ford Falcon GT
- 1972 Land Rover Series III
- 1995 Nissan Skyline GT-R R33 NISMO LM Road Going Version
- 1983 Volvo 242 Turbo Evolution
The BMW 507 and Volvo 242 Turbo Evo return to Forza for the first time since FM4 on Xbox 360.
The elegant 1959 507 roadster is one of BMW's most beautiful classics. powered by a 3.2 liter overhead-valve, aluminum-block V8, the BMW 507 produced 150 hp and accelerated from 0-60 mph in 8.8 seconds and all the way up to a top speed of 136 mph.
The Volvo 242 Turbo Evolution may look like your typical '80s Swedish brick, but what lies underneath will surprise you, the same way it surprised its competitors when Volvo entered Group A racing. The Volvo 242 Turbo Evolution is poweredby a Garret turbocharged 2.1 liter power unit producing 350 bhp. Only 500 examples Turbo Evolution were produced and now you can own one too.
The most surprising edition to FH3 is the 2017 Chevy Camaro ZL1, which did not appear in a source leak back in January. The mighty ZL1 boasts a mighty 650 hp and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. As a self respecting modern musclecar, the ZL1 also features really good handling as well, thanks to fancy magnetorheological dampers.
The 2015 Jaguar XES may be the smallest Jag in the lineup, but it's certainly no slouch thanks to its supercharged V6 engine and lithe chassis.
The 1992 Ford Falcon GT celebrated 25 years of the Falcon GT. A joint venture with Tickford Vehicle Engineering (TVE) produced a special hot-rod sequentially-injected 302 Windsor V8. Only 250 EB II Falcon GTs were made for Australia, with just an extra 15 produced for New Zealand.
No homologated race car in the FH3 Duracell Car Pack is more iconic than the legendary 1995 Nissan NISMO GT-R LM. Significant rule changes forced manufacturers to develop street cars in order to compete in the GT1 class of Le Mans endurance racing. In order to meet the regulations, NISMO developed one, just one, road-going version. The ultra-rare special edition R33 GT-R is essentially a GT1 street car, featuring wider body work and a special rear-wheel drive setup. The R33 LM race car was stripped to 1150kg and armed with a tuned Group N-spec RB26DETT motor producing 400 hp.
Finally, the last vehicle in the car pack, the 1972 Land Rover Series III, isn't necessarily a homologated motorsport special, but that doesn't mean it's any less fun.
The Forza Horizon 3 Duracell Car Pack is availabe for free to all players with the FH3 car pass. For everyone else, Forza is also throwing in a free special edition GTA Spano supercar with a unique Duracell livery. Look for the Car Pack on Xbox Marketplace or the Windows 10 store on Tuesday, March 7.
