Welcome to week three of the Forza Motorsport 7 Garage, our weekly look at the 700+ cars coming to the game at launch. A huge part of any Forza game is the chance to express yourself – whether you love painting cars with gorgeous liveries or creating custom builds and tunes that can transform a good car into a great one. This week, in addition to announcing a massive collection of Japanese vehicles – 77 in total – we’re also turning the spotlight on the body customization options available to players in Forza Motorsport 7.
For the first time in the Forza Motorsport series, we’re bringing wide-body kits to a number of cars in Forza Motorsport 7. A select number of kits are completely bespoke and designed in-house here at Turn 10; from underground-inspired designs to aero-enhanced kits modelled after professional motorsport. In addition, numerous body-kit options from Forza Horizon 3 will also be available in Forza Motorsport 7, including Upgrade Heroes like the Nissan S14 and the 240SX SE announced today.
Wheel options will be abundant in Forza Motorsport 7. In addition to bringing over a number of the new-entry wheels from Forza Horizon 3, we’re adding a selection of new race-inspired. Whether you’re building your favourite car for yourself or you want to establish your reputation as a master in the Forza Motorsport 7 tuning scene by sharing your masterpiece on the Auction House, now you’ll have more options than ever to build the cars of your dreams.
2016 Honda Civic Type R
For car fans, seeing the letter “R” on a car usually means something special. In the case of the Civic Type R, “R” means “racing,” as in race-bred. Honda didn’t just slap some logos and some wheels on this specification either. That “R” may as well also stand for “ridiculous” horsepower – as in more than 300hp. Take one look at the sleek and aggressive aero kit and the “R” can easily stand for “radical.” From the torque-steer limiting dual-axis strut suspension to the mechanical front differential and the Brembo brakes, this Civic Type R is just what Honda fans, and Forza fans, have been waiting for.
2017 Acura NSX
The new Acura NSX may be a hybrid, but it’s a hybrid supercar – a mid-engine, all-wheel-drive, twin-turbo hybrid slice of pure performance perfection. With around 600hp from its combined 3.5-liter V6 and three electric motors driving all four wheels, you have a balanced and capable car that can compete with other supercars nearly ten times its price. There are nine gears to work your way through as you pass 60 mph in just over three seconds and torque-vectoring to smooth you through the curves. For decades “NSX” has been synonymous with serious performance; lucky for us, the 2017 NSX more than measures up to its famous name.
Here’s a look at the cars we’re announcing this week. As always, stay tuned to ForzaMotorsport.net for the full list of Forza Motorsport 7 cars revealed to date.
