The Hot Wheels Car Pack for Forza Motorsport 6 brings with it a collection of cars that are sure to please both die-cast diehards and virtual racers alike. Leading this seven-car pack are two models that Hot Wheels fans are intimately familiar with – the 2011 Hot Wheels Bone Shaker and the 2005 Ford Hot Wheels Mustang.
Making its Xbox One debut, the Bone Shaker is the ultimate rat-rod – a real life showcase car built in 2011 that that has since taken on legendary status among Hot Wheels fans. Alongside the Bone Shaker, the killer drifting Mustang that Hot Wheels built to celebrate 50 years of the Mustang.
Also making its debut is arguably the most anticipated hot hatch of 2017 the Ford Focus RS, which makes its global real-life debut in June. Other highlights in the pack include the race-ready version of McLaren’s flagship hypercar, an early 90s Ferrari F1 racer, and more, making the Hot Wheels Car Pack a must-have for nearly any type of car fan.
In June, Hot Wheels will be launching two cars from the “Forza Motorsport 6” Hot Wheels Car Pack as collectible die-cast models in retail stores. In addition, November will see the launch of the Forza Motorsport Hot Wheels Entertainment Series of die-cast cars, featuring five Forza Motorsport-themed models.
Here’s a closer look at the cars in this pack:
2011 Hot Wheels Bone Shaker
Designed by “Mr. Hot Wheels” Designer Larry Wood, the Bone Shaker is one of a handful of Hot Wheels deemed popular enough to warrant the creation of a real-life version. Built in 2011 by Picture Car Warehouse, the Bone Shaker carries all the details of the original 1:64 scale model. The trademark skull face with hands gripping the headlights make it clear that this is no run-of-the-mill rat rod. The small-block Chevy motor with headers and straight pipes was built to intimidate in both sound and performance. To show off the interior details and stay true to the original form, the top is open — although closed-top die-cast versions were also made. Inside, creepy details like the skull-topped spine shifter and the skull-and-crossbones steering wheel pair perfectly with the awesome flame-job on the outside.
2005 Ford Hot Wheels Mustang
To celebrate 50 years of the iconic Ford pony car, Hot Wheels and specialty-builder Action Vehicle Engineering started with a 2005 Mustang and created this custom drift model. The styling is meant to emulate a Bosuzoku-style Japanese race car. Featuring huge fender flares, the car’s oil-cooler lines are routed through the empty grill, and its spoiler and rear diffuser all contribute to the look. The wheels are one-of-a-kind, built specially for this car. The purple and orange paint colors and carbon-fiber accents make this Mustang pop that much more.
1990 Ferrari #1 Scuderia Ferrari 641
Alain Prost‘s 641 took Ferrari engineering to the next level with electronically-controlled paddle-shifting and the glorious roar of its 680-hp V12 driving the John Barnard-designed chassis. Prost would refer to the 641 as “The best car on the grid.”
2017 Ford Focus RS
With the Focus RS, Ford cut no corners and is drawing new boundaries for what enthusiasts can expect from the blue oval. Most of all, we can thank them for bringing the RS to America. The RS speaks for itself with a barking, raspy burble that harkens to its rally heritage. Thanks to Ford’s innovative Torque Vectoring Rear Drive Module, power distribution is far more adaptable than ever before. This is just the tip of the iceberg, too; the RS boasts 350hp, aggressive lines, braking that inspires confidence, and an adjustable suspension. The RS is the result of more than two years of development headed by Tyrone Johnson, Ford’s vehicle performance manager.
2015 McLaren P1 GTR
Among elite supercar heritage the name of McLaren stands tall and, at the blistering edge of performances, lives the P1 GTR. Named after the McLaren F1 GTR, which won the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans, the GTR is a race-bred hypercar with clear intent to rule the track. As part of McLaren’s GTR Driver Program, owners can receive training in preparation to participate in exclusive racing events. The GTR brings more power and more downforce, as well as a race-prepared suspension. Look closely and you will notice the mirrors have been moved to the A-pillars to increase visibility and reduce drag. If you are looking for the ultimate offering from the U.K., look no further, the P1 GTR is here.
2016 Chevrolet Camaro Super Sport
The retro-body style is now in its seventh year but a close look will reveal a few new creases to define the new model. Overall, the car is slightly smaller on the outside and 200 pounds lighter. You can take this out for a run to discover what makes this the best Chevrolet Camaro yet.
2015 BMW X6M
This twin- turbo V8-powered version with all-wheel-drive and an eight-speed automatic takes off from the line with the muster of cars half its weight. And, despite it being over 5,000 lbs, it will carve a turn and brake like you expect from any M-class BMW.
