“With the recent launch of the Formula 1 Esport Series and the growing popularity of this new discipline in the Paddock, the opportunity to increase our footprint in gaming and partner with Xbox on a custom console was an exciting challenge for us, especially knowing it would be released before the highly-anticipated Formula 1 United States Grand Prix,” said Cyril Abiteboul, Managing Director of Renault Formula One Team. “We have included design technologies that push the boundaries of manufacturing and we are proud of the result we have achieved.

The International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) today announced a strategic alliance with the award-winning, world-renowned Forza franchise developed by Turn 10 Studios and published by Microsoft Studios.

This alliance includes a multi-faceted platform of activation highlighting IMSA cars, tracks and partners already aligned with the franchise which is home to the largest online racing community in gaming. Earlier this week Turn 10 launched Forza Motorsport 7, the most comprehensive, beautiful and authentic racing game ever made on Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs.

“This alliance between IMSA and the Forza franchise further solidifies the long-standing relationship between these two outstanding brands,” IMSA president Scott Atherton said. “IMSA cars and tracks have enjoyed a significant presence in the game for many years, and we are proud to have our series featured to the millions who play the game every day.”

“We’re proud to celebrate the launch of Forza Motorsport 7 by announcing the alliance with IMSA, a long-standing partner of our franchise,” Turn10 Senior Business Director Mike Humphreys said. “At Turn 10 Studios we are driven by car passion, technical innovation and the thrill of competition; all pursuits that we share with IMSA.

Forza fans, prepare for an action-packed start to the launch of Forza Motorsport 7 with the upcoming launch of the The Fate of the Furious™ Car Pack, created in collaboration with Universal Brand Development. Available for players who have purchased the Deluxe or Ultimate Editions of Forza Motorsport 7, The Fate of the Furious Car Pack features ten hero cars from the nitro-fueled blockbuster action franchise.



The Fate of the Furious Car Pack for Forza Motorsport 7 is only available for players who own the Deluxe and Ultimate Editions digital bundles of Forza Motorsport 7, and will be available for standalone purchase at $9.99.

Now let’s take a closer look at the cars included:

1966 Chevrolet Corvette The Fate of the Furious Edition
ChevroletCorvette_FM7_FateofFuriousCarPack1.jpg
This C2 Stingray was built to emulate the autocross and chase down cones with the best from the modern era. Underneath the period-correct fender flares you will find a lot of rubber and an independent rear suspension that delivers tons of grip. Given its lightened and strengthened chassis, the 400 horsepower transferred through a Muncie four-speed should provide the perfect package for straightening out any set of curves you may encounter.

1968 Dodge Charger The Fate of the Furious Edition
DodgeCharger_FM7_FateofFuriousCarPack1.jpg
This fully modified ice racing version of Dominic Toretto’s favorite car has little left of your typical Charger. In fact, only the roof and pillars are stock. This chunk of American muscle has been widened to accommodate its 18-inch tires that fight for traction with the help of a custom all-wheel-drive system and ridiculous steering angle that would make even a drifter drop their jaw. Under the hood is a Chevrolet LS motor with more than enough juice to keep it sideways. Naturally the entire car has been reinforced and fortified for battle. Even though you might not need to dodge bullets in Forza, this Charger’s look will surely...

With the launch of the demo and previews of FM7 from the worlwide gaming media starting this coming Tuesday it's about time you get a scope on what to expect from now till launch and a lookout into the future. Below you will also find the full FM7 Achievements List.

So without further ado here is Turn 10's Community Manager Brian Ekberg giving us a Pre-Launch Update:

It’s T-minus two weeks until the early access launch of Forza Motorsport 7. There’s a palpable sense of excitement around the halls of Turn 10 as we prepare to bring our biggest and best Forza game yet to the world. From the very start, the team has worked towards a vision of re-imagining the racing experience and, starting with early access on September 29, the community will be lighting out again on another fantastic Forza adventure.

Ever since we announced Forza 7, we’ve called this our biggest game, and the numbers bear it out: more than 700 cars at launch, 32 of the world’s greatest tracks (our largest lineup ever), a massive career in the Forza Driver’s Cup, and of course a huge list of ever-changing multiplayer and competitive modes that will keep players busy no matter their skill level or driving preferences. This is the largest game we’ve ever released in terms of sheer footprint size as well. The Xbox One game will be approximately 95 GB at launch. Just about 45 GB of that contained on the Blu-ray disc. The remainder will be available to download for free on September 29.

Naturally, the game can be played from the disc alone. However, if you want to experience the true depth and breadth of content in Forza Motorsport 7, you’ll want to take the additional update. A great example is the Forza Driver’s Cup single-player campaign. While all players can complete the first play-through of the Forza Driver’s Cup on disc, beating the series unlocks a wealth of new Forza Driver’s Cup content, including new competitive and Showcase events, as well as new trophies and Driver Gear rewards.

The challengers will then compete against each-other during a live finals event across a 10-race championship to determine the ultimate winner.

The All-Stars race and the Harvey Norman Supercars Forza Challenge grand final will be played across a series of Xbox consoles in front of a live audience set and streamed live on Supercars.com, foxsports.com.au in Australia, and across Europe, North America, Asia and the Middle East with Supercars broadcast partners.

The V8 Supercars Championship in Australia is the premier road racing series Down Under. At this event, no matter where the success has swayed, Holden holds a faithful following of race fans. The #22 is driven by veteran James Courtney and primarily sponsored by Mobil 1. The 2017 season has been a tough one for the Walkinshaw team, but no one is more loyal to his calling than Courtney, who has driven with optimism and an...
