Forza Motorsport 4 May Top Gear Car Pack Overview
The May Top Gear car pack for Forza 4 is certainly one of the most entertaining car packs we’ve seen yet. It features a great variety of new cars but some of them definitely stand out.
2012 Hennessey Venom GT
The Venom GT, to put it simply, an absolute monster! Its 6.2 liter, twin turbocharged V8 delivers 1,200 horsepower to the rear wheels. That’s an astonishing number. But what’s even more astonishing is the fact that it only weighs 2,685 pounds!
The Venom’s weight enables it to deliver a 0-200 time ten seconds faster than that of the Bugatti Veyron! Now that’s something to brag about. It also has the best power to weight ratio of any production car ever made.
2012 Chrysler 300C SRT-8
The new Chrysler 300C SRT-8 definitely has all of the necessary aspects of a modern muscle car. The standout features include a 450 horsepower V8 under the hood and a whopping 465 pounds, feet of torque. It’s also capable of a sub 13 second quarter mile time.
While it may look like a family car, the new 300C SRT-8 is a true Hoonigan’s car. Once you turn the traction control off, it will spew smoke from the rear tires for days.
1990 Subaru Legacy RS
The Subaru Legacy RS is definitely a welcome addition to the Forza Motorsport 4 car list. Many touge and rally enthusiasts have wanted it for a long time. And I’m sure that this Legacy’s legacy will live on in Forza 4.
When the Legacy RS was released, it brought a new level of performance to Subaru showrooms. Its engine (the EJ20G) has been used in WRX models and produced around 200 horsepower.
1966 Lotus Cortina
The Lotus Cortina is a very interesting car indeed. In fact, it was one of the first cars that allowed owners to have fun on the track and still use the car every day.
With its light weight body, 1.6 liter 4 cylinder engine and a zero to sixty time of under 10 seconds, the Lotus Cortina was definitely a revolutionary car for its time.
1977 AMC Pacer X
The Pacer X is definitely one of the oddball cars in this DLC pack. Sure it may only pack 100 horsepower but that’s not what this car is about.
To be honest I don’t see the Pacer X winning any races. However, I do think it would be an interesting choice for a bit of car soccer.
2012 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon
I can’t help but think that the addition of off-road vehicles like the Wrangler is a sign that Forza 4 may be getting off-road tracks. But that’s in the future.
Since the Wrangler wants to flip over every time you go near a corner at high speeds, it’s not very good for racing.
But, the Wrangler isn’t a bad choice for a game of tag. It’s also a great choice for the goalie position in car soccer and may give the Hummer a run for its money.
2011 Ford Transit SuperSport Van
The SuperSport Van is an interesting vehicle. Sure it might not be very fast with its stock engine. But swap in a Ford Racing V8 and you’ve got yourself a Super Sleeper Van!
It’s also an extremely fun vehicle to drift in. Trust us, just to try it, you’ll be amazed.
2012 Smart for Two
The 2012 Smart is definitely the smallest car that we’ve ever seen in forza 4’s car list. It’s also definitely not the most powerful car you’ll ever drive. At a mere 70 horsepower from a 3 cylinder engine the Smart is anything but powerful.
At this point you’re probably thinking “why is it in the game then?” Well my friends, you’ll be happy to know that we’ve found the perfect use for the Smart. It’s the penalty box for anyone that doesn’t behave during races!
1992 Mitsubishi Gallant VR-4
The Gallant VR-4 is the direct rival of the Subaru Legacy that we talked about earlier. And we’re sure that the two will be found in an eternal touge battle with each other.
Featuring a turbo charged 4 cylinder engine pumping out 237 horsepower, four wheel drive and four wheel steering, the Gallant VR-4 definitely holds a special place in JDM history.
