Washington, 10 April 2015: Make way for the Furious 7 Car Pack on Forza Horizon 2 for Xbox One! Featuring a lineup of awesome cars appearing in Universal Pictures’ latest action film, Furious 7, the Furious 7 Car Pack is worthy of its own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The Furious 7 Car Pack will be available on April 7 for $5, and will feature eight amazing cars to collect, drive, and race in Forza Horizon 2 – that’s two additional cars over the standard monthly Forza Horizon 2 car pack.
In the game, you’re recruited by the “Fast & Furious” Tej Parker (voiced in the game by Ludacris) to help him acquire ten special cars for his crew – the same cars you’ll see in the film “Furious 7.” Your goal is to acquire each of these cars by taking part in a series of automotive challenges inspired by the “Fast & Furious” films. From the 900-hp 1970 Dodge Charger to an armored 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and more, each of the cars in the Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious standalone expansion is both stunningly accurate and amazingly fun to drive.
Living life a quarter mile at a time starts with the 1970 Dodge Charger R/T, but the rest of the cars in the “Furious 7” Car Pack more than hold their own. From the menacing luxury of the 2014 Maserati Ghibli S to the armored beast that is the 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, these cars have to be seen, heard, and driven to be believed. All of the cars in the pack have been authentically recreated, including details never before seen in a Forza game – like the awesome functioning blower in the 1970 Dodge Charger R/T. And let’s not forget this month’s free car – the 1998 Toyota Supra, which is available to all Forza Horizon 2 players at no additional cost. Watch them grind in theaters beginning on April 3 and then drive them yourself in Forza Horizon 2.
We define some of the cars:
2014 Maserati Ghibli S “Fast & Furious” Edition: There is no substitute for the luxury and elegance of an Italian touring coupe. Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw drives this Ghibli in “Furious 7,” and who can blame him? Maserati delivers a plush driving experience that you would expect from the marque, as well as performance that can keep pace with anything in its class.
1970 Plymouth Road Runner “Fast & Furious” Edition: “Beep-beep,” was the only sound Chuck Jones’ road runner ever made. The famous cartoon bird was never caught by the coyote, and owners of Plymouth’s Road Runner very rarely are either. Plymouth created the Road Runner in 1968 as an affordable street-fighter that clung to the roots of what a real muscle car was: all business.
2015 Dodge Charger R/T “Fast & Furious” Edition: American muscle is a wise choice for Dom and it shows his Mopar roots amidst the supercars that prevail in Abu Dhabi. The Charger R/T has got more than enough gusto to raise some eyebrows. Packing 370 horses, the Charger is the choice of many police departments and governmental services that require pursuit vehicles.
2015 Dodge Challenger “Fast & Furious” Edition: You know that Letty loves her Cuda, so what better modern muscle for her to roll than the 2015 Challenger? This car is built to handle the rigors of life in the Furious crew. The crash bars are just one aspect that make this ride a weapon for the road.
1970 Plymouth Cuda “Fast & Furious” Edition: Letty’s not the only one who loves the Plymouth Cuda. It may have started out as a rare AAR Cuda, but with the upgrades this prime cut of American muscle is running, we are talking about well over 600 horsepower of performance.
As a reminder, the game is available for download now on Xbox Live and is free until April 10.
