Forza Motorsport 4: August pack brings 10 more cars photo



The August Playseat Car Pack for Forza Motorsport 4 comes out today, August 7, on Xbox Live, priced at 560 Microsoft Points. You'll get 10 cars for your garage for that outlay, ranging from pretty standard (but still nice!) stuff like the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe to super cray-cray rides like the 2003 Aston Martin DB7 Zagato. As an import car geek I'm most looking forward to virtually test driving the 2013 Scion FR-S, the upcoming Toyota/Subaru collaboration vehicle.  

Forza and this month's sponsor, Playseat, are holding a contest to give away Playseat prizes. the August Playseat Car Pack Challenge can be found in Forza 4's Rivals Mode starting today and running through the end of the month. The top finisher from this challenge will win a Playseat Forza Motorsport 4 racing sim chassis!

Hit the jump to see the full list of cars for this month's car pack. I totally copied and pasted them.

 

  •  ·          2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302 – Backed by legions of followers, the Boss 301 has a look that’s both aggressive and contemporary, with lots of throwback charm. Among other colors, the Boss is available in school bus yellow as a tribute to the 1970 Trans-Am championship car driven by Parnelli Jones.  
  • ·         2003 Aston Martin DB7 Zagato – First shown in August 2002 the DB7 Zagato saw only 100 cars in its production run. Those 100 cars have rightly become prized collector’s items, with a 5.9 liter V12 normally aspirated engine and lots of signature Zagato design flourishes.
  • ·         2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 – The spirit of Chevy’s hallowed ZL1 Camaro makes its return and it delivers on Chevy fans’ sky-high expectations. With a 6.2-liter V8 cranking out a healthy 580 horsepower, the ZL1 aims to put an exclamation point on the phrase, “American Muscle.”
  • ·         2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 Track – Built-in driftability comes standard in this, the fastest of the Genesis Coupes. The 3.8 Track’s rear-wheel drive and hearty V6 deliver an exciting ride whether the car is in a straight line or you are linking smoke-billowing drift turns.
  • ·         1962 Lincoln Continental – No other car quite exemplifies the term “land yacht”, the Continental is regal in its presentation and as ostentatious as it is wide and long. In 1962 it was offered as “economical,” surely not for the gas-chugging 430 CID V8, but genuinely for its sheer quality of construction.
  • ·         1989 Mercedes-Benz #63 Sauber-Mercedes C 9 – The C9 was the watershed Group C racecar that brought Sauber-Mercedes pole and second position on the grid at Le Mans in 1989, leading to a win and second place that year. The beauty of the chassis in classic silver harkens back to the successful Silver Arrows of ages past. Among group C racers the C 9 is a fabled competitor.
  • ·         1984 Peugeot 205 T16 – 200 production model T16s were produced in order for Peugeot to meet homologation standards for rally competition. These radical cars had a specially developed mid-mounted four-cylinder turbocharged, 16-valve engine mated to a four-wheel-drive system. The street version of the 205 T16 only differed from the rally version through a lowered turbo boost and the interior trim.  
  • ·         2013 Scion FR-S – This long-awaited collaboration between Toyota and Subaru is a welcome addition for sports car fans. The 2.0 liter puts out 200 horsepower matched with a six-speed transmission in a package that weighs around 2,800 pounds. The FR-S will do 0-60 in just over six seconds and is no slouch in cornering responsiveness.
  • ·         1962 Triumph TR3B – This is a true wind-in-your-face sports car with a four-cylinder engine and dual SU carburetors churning out a respectable 105 hp. At only 2,200 pounds, and with a fully-synchronized transmission, it provided plenty of sporting excitement. The TR3’s racing success and fun road-going manners established Triumph in the sports car market for many years to come.
  • ·         2013 Lexus GS350 F Sport – With the F Sport, luxury and refinement are cast strongly enough to compete with the Germans. Driven aggressively, the GS350 can utilize its firmer suspension and larger front-brake rotors to raise adrenalin. Or it can serenely transport its passengers in comfort and security. It’s really about the potential to excite, and the GS350 F has excitement in spades.
