The Mobil 1 Car Pack for Forza Motorsport 6 has arrived and this pack includes seven cars that offer completely different driving experiences. Whether you like to collect, paint, race, drift or just want to drool over every car’s detail in ForzaVista, these cars satisfy and deliver on all fronts.
One of the most requested cars by the Forza community to the team has been the Koenigsegg One:1 and now you get to race it. While the 2016 Mercedes-AMG C 63 S Coupé showcases refinement and German engineering at its very best. Indy 500 and IMSA Racing history are represented here as well in the 1990 Chevrolet #30 Douglas Shierson Racing Lola T90/00 and the 1991 Mazda #62 Mazda Motorsport RX-7, respectively.
The Mobil 1 Car Pack is included at no additional cost to owners of the Forza Motorsport 6 Car Pass, which brings six car packs featuring seven cars to players each month. That’s 42 cars in total, all ready to be instantly added to your garage to customize, tune and race! All other racers can purchase the pack separately for $6.99 or buy cars from the pack individually from the Forza store.
2015 Koenigsegg One:1
Koenigsegg has built just over 100 cars since it began production in 2003 out of a converted fighter jet hangar in Ängelholm, Sweden. The One:1, pronounced as a ratio (“one-to-one”), is the company’s most radical accomplishment thus far. The strange name is representative of the nearly inconceivable 1:1 power to weight ratio. That’s 1341 hp in a vehicle that weighs just 1360 kg. The One:1 will see its driver from 0 to 250 mph in just 20 seconds and can theoretically reach a 273 mph top speed. This rocket ship with wheels intends to set a new lap record at the Nürburgring once management at the famous racing venue allows lap records to be set again. With each of the six $2.4 million hypercars already sold, getting a hand on the wheel of this ultra-exotic in Forza Motorsport 6 is the closest the rest of us may ever get.
2016 Mercedes-AMG C 63 S Coupé
Drive it before you can buy it on dealer lots – the new Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupé won’t be available to the public until the summer of 2016 in Europe and 2017 in America. Even if you are not considering the purchase of a top-of-the-line, two-door Silver Arrow, this baby is worth a spin. Whether you consider the 503 horsepower twin-turbo V8 (the same motor as the AMG GT that runs as a safety car for Formula 1) or the German refinements that abound in the interior and exterior stylings, this car will please your senses and keep your attention. In short, the pinnacle of sports and luxury awaits you in Mercedes’ latest masterpiece.
1990 Chevrolet #30 Douglas Shierson Racing Lola T90/00
Arie Luyendyk won his first of two Indianapolis 500s for Doug Shierson Racing in 1990, driving this Lola T90/00. In that race, he set the record average speed of 185.981 mph. That record stood the test of time for 23 years until Tony Kanaan broke it in 2013.
1991 Mazda #62 Mazda Motorsport RX-7
By the end of 1991, the RX-7 racer had racked up 106 IMSA wins. Five wins came in 1991 alone from the #62 RX-7 driven by Pete Halsmer (who won the driver’s championship that year) and from the #63 driven by Price Cobb, who placed third in drivers’ standings. Mazda won the manufacturers’ championship that year with the pair of GTU racers generating 27 top-five finishes, four pole-positions, and seven fastest laps to add to the wins. The rotary powered four-rotor 600-hp mill coupled with the lithe tube-frame chassis and wide-body, had a significant advantage in class. The RX-7 was so dominant that IMSA added 100 pounds of weight mid-season to try and make it fairer on the other racers.
1963 Ferrari 250LM
Not to be outdone by arch-rival Maserati (who built the first mid-engined V12 sports car), Ferrari built the 250 P, which smashed the track record at Monza in 1962 and earned first and third in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, along with a then-outdated front-engined Ferrari 250 GTO taking second. The 250 P became the base for the 250LM with the addition of a roof and more rigid chassis tubes. With only 32 models ever built, the 250LM never reached homologation and was forced to race in the prototype class where it continued to win. Among Ferrari’s faithful the ‘Tifosi’, the 250LM holds a special place as the last car to achieve an overall victory at Le Mans.
1988 Holden VL Commodore Group A SV
With the departure of Peter Brock, Holden needed new blood to run and build its performance vehicles division. Holden turned to British-based Tom Walkinshaw Racing and Holden Special Vehicles (HSV) was born. The Commodore Group A was a homologation special referred to by many nicknames, including “Walkinshaw” for its heritage. The redesigned aero kit helped reduced drag by almost 25 percent on the car. The car quickly sold the required 500 models to let Commodore go racing and 250 more were produced to satisfy demand. The cars were produced in only one color, “Panorama Silver,” named after the famed Bathurst racing circuit at Mount Panorama.
1958 Plymouth Fury
The Fury is gorgeous and it represents an era where cars were designed to be alluring and gas prices were not an issue. The Fury featured a 305 hp Golden Commando V8 under the hood. Some consider the Fury a landmark of glistening metal that is best driven in a straight line, and it may lack braking and turning performance, but who cares? Besides, once you feel the float of this boat going down a straightaway, winning may become less of a priority.
