The Forza Garage

Monday, July 17, 2017

Welcome to the Forza Garage, our series of weekly vehicle reveals leading up to the launch of Forza Motorsport 7. With more than 700 vehicles in the game at launch, Forza Motorsport 7 features the most diverse lineup of cars in Forza history. Each week in the Forza Garage we’ll put the spotlight on some of the most notable cars in the list and give readers some background on what makes each of these cars so special. Whether you’re looking to learn something new or you’re digging deep in the weekly lists and making plans of which cars to hit first when the game is released beginning on September 29 (via early access for Ultimate Edition owners!), we hope you enjoy our weekly look at Forza Motorsport 7’s biggest and best car list yet.

 

We’re kicking the Forza Garage off with a bang, showcasing the largest collection of Porsches, Lamborghinis, and Ferraris to ever seen in a racing game. Call these legendary manufacturers “The Big Three” if you like, but they all represent the cutting edge of visual design, innovative engineering, and perhaps best of all, raw unadulterated performance. Welcome to Week 1 of the Forza Garage; this is where speed lives.

 

2014 Porsche 918 Spyder

Forget everything you have ever thought about hybrids before you consider the 918 Spyder. It is the culmination of years of research and technical prowess from the first company that ever sported a prancing horse on its badge. The 918 Spyder is the starting point of a new era of performance and has raised the bar of what can be expected of a car, even a hypercar. Nearly 900 combined horsepower from its 4.6-liter naturally-aspirated flat crank V8 and hybrid electrical system and built almost completely of carbon fiber make it a technological marvel. The 918 Spyder already set a production car lap record at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and shattered the production car record at the Nürburgring by 14 seconds. It is visually stunning in all regards and distinctly Porsche even though it looks like no other Porsche ever. The blank sheet of paper 918 designers started with produced innovations in every direction and convention was left by the wayside. The result is nothing less than the spark of a new generation of the highest performing vehicles the world has ever seen.

 

 

2011 Lamborghini Sesto Elemento

Faceted like a cut diamond, there’s no mistaking the Sesto Elemento for anything else on the road—even other Lamborghinis. Sesto elemento is Italian for “sixth element;” if you don’t have a periodic table nearby, that’s carbon, a not-so-subtle hint that the body is composed entirely of the woven stuff. Regardless of what it’s made out of, the Sesto Elemento is primal and aggressive, studded with blinding red accents and show-stopping open rear bodywork from which the taillights and transaxle dangle precariously. Under the six red hexagons serving as outlets for engine heat resides the same 5.2-liter V10 found normally in the Gallardo, but considering that the Sesto Elemento is more than half a ton lighter than the Gallardo, performance is in another dimension entirely. Lamborghini claims the carbon-covered monster will teleport to 60 mph in less than 2.5 seconds, and that seems reasonable, if you can consider such wild acceleration reasonable at all. For truly elemental performance, look no further than this ultimate Lamborghini.

 

 

1967 Ferrari #23 Ferrari Spa 330 P4

The epic battle between Ford and Ferrari reached a flashpoint in 1966, when Ford GT40s swept the podium at Le Mans. Clearly, the 330 P3 needed a revision to compete the following season, and engineers swarmed over the car. The resulting P4 looked identical from a few steps back—onlookers were surely confused when the first P4 first saw light of day, wearing nearly the same beautifully sinister lines. However, a closer look reveals significant changes that perhaps only became obvious when P4s swept the podium at Daytona as payback for the Le Mans humiliation the year before (and providing the new Ferrari 365 GTB/4 its famous nickname in the process). Of the changes, the most important from a competition perspective was an extensive reengineering of the 330’s powerplant, the largest Lampredi V12 in Ferrari’s arsenal. Fitted with a new three-valve head and fuel injection, it is good for 450 horsepower. The slightly shorter P4 only weighed a ton, so performance was (and still is) staggering—more than enough for Ferrari to capture the Prototype Championship, and also more than enough for the FIA to jump in and limit next year’s prototypes to only three liters, effectively ending the careers of both the P4 and the GT40.

 

Now take a look at the entire list of cars we are announcing during the first week of the Forza Garage.
