Yes, we have been saving the best for last. Here, in the final week of the Forza Motorsport 7 Garage, we bring you cars that span more than 50 years of racing history, all of which you’ll be able to explore, customize and drive in Forza Motorsport 7. From the early days of racing history to modern high-tech marvels, this lineup is drawn from nearly every major racing series in the world.

The world of racing has a history all its own. There are stories of success and triumph and endless innovation. Consider the evolution of aerodynamics in the first cars to experiment with downforce, or the search for power as turbo-charged vehicles entered the field. Forza Motorsport 7 will feature classic racers like the 1966 Ford #2 GT40 Mk II Le Mans and the 1991 Mazda #18 Mazdaspeed 787B, among many others legendary race cars. As the 2017 racing season is still underway, you will be able to experience the latest technology and designs from Formula One, IndyCar, NASCAR, Aussie V8 Supercars and Formula E. These are the cars that are racing right now in their respective series, and you’ll get to race them firsthand in Forza Motorsport 7.

This week, we’re also thrilled to share an exciting infographic that encapsulates the diversity and breadth of Forza Motorsport 7’s massive 700+ car lineup.

Now let’s take a look at the cars of the final week of the Forza Motorsport 7 Garage.

2017 Holden #22 Walkinshaw Performance VF Commodore
Holden_22_VF_Commodore_WM_FM7_CarReveal_Week07_4K1.jpg
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...

Here we are at the penultimate week six of car announcements coming to Forza Motorsport 7 and we’re shining the spotlight on a truly unique batch of cars. The Forza world fell in love with the custom built special models that debuted in Forza Horizon 3 and we’re pleased to say that Forza Edition cars, as they’re now known, will be a part of the fun in Forza Motorsport 7! These cars feature unique styles designed to catch the eye, but also custom tuning and special bonuses that will make them must-own additions to every Forza player’s garage.

In Forza Motorsport 7, Forza Edition cars will be immediately recognizable on the track. Whether they’re sporting custom widebody kits and wheels or gorgeous liveries, Forza Edition cars will always stand out from the crowd. Beyond the aesthetics you can only find in a Forza Edition car, you will get a ride that has been fine-tuned by the experts here at Turn 10, who have considered every factor from power-to-weight ratio, to the specific suspension settings that will make a Forza Edition car a top choice for all types of four-wheeled-fun, including special built-to-drift models.

Not only do these cars look great and drive well, but Forza Edition vehicles also offer advantages to progress your career and increase your credit balance. Each Forza Edition vehicle has built-in multipliers that will enhance your credit reward for racing and winning with it, as well as increase the XP gained while you are behind the wheel. These are tools of your racing trade that will deliver a big payoff, race after race.

So how do you get your hands on these amazing Forza Edition cars? In addition to being available as rewards in game, via the Forza Drivers Cup single player campaign or in #Forzathon events, you’ll also be able to find them on the Auction House, which is returning for Forza Motorsport 7.

For those who want to get a great head start on their Forza Edition collection right away, check out our VIP membership, which is...

Today, during Xbox @ gamescom Live, we talked to fans about our commitment to bring all PC players a world-class racing experience with Forza Motorsport 7 for Windows 10 PCs. We unveiled the game’s PC specifications with an approachable wide range of hardware configurations and a massive list of more than 30 supported peripherals. We also announced that for the first time ever, fans will be able to play the Forza Motorsport 7 demo on Windows 10 PCs prior to the game’s release.

At Turn 10 Studios, PC gamers are a top priority, and as such, we have invested significant time to ensure Forza Motorsport 7 offers the best possible experience on Windows 10 PCs and is accessible to millions of more players. Together with our state-of-the art ForzaTech engine, both Forza Motorsport 6: Apex and Forza Horizon 3 helped us quickly learn what’s needed to create a successful PC racing game – such as support for a wide range of PC setups and racing wheels. Since Forza Horizon 3 launched in September 2016, we’ve continued to make improvements to the PC version of the game, with updates to the Windows 10 PC demo, that we’re also applying to Forza Motorsport 7.

Forza7_Gamescom_PressKit_DriverCloseUp_4K1.jpg Forza7_Gamescom_PressKit_ReadyToRace_4K1.jpg

As a result, we’ve built Forza Motorsport 7 from the ground up to be the ultimate PC racing game, with native 4K resolution and unlocked framerate on high-end Windows 10 PCs, Xbox Play Anywhere and cross-play functionality, as well as support for multiple monitors, 21:9 displays and numerous peripherals. Plus, with more than 700 cars and 30 tracks, dynamic skies and weather, and an all-new campaign inspired by real-world racing, we’re excited to see PC gamers live their motorsport fantasies this holiday and join our community of more than five million monthly active players.

Earlier this week, the folks at ComputerBild published a feature on tracks in Forza Motorsport 7. Featuring a discussion with Turn 10 Studios creative director Dan Greenawalt, the article pointed out the many cutting-edge systems that Turn 10 uses to bring the tracks to life with new weather scenarios and alternate times of day that literally cast the tracks of Forza Motorsport 7 in a brand-new light. If you haven’t already done so, check out the article now.

Suzuka Circuit, Completely Rebuilt
FM7_TrackReveal_SuzukaCircuit_4K1.jpg
It’s one thing to read about the changes coming to tracks in Forza Motorsport 7 but it’s a very different thing to see them for yourself. Suzuka is a prime example; like all of the real-world tracks in Forza Motorsport 7, Suzuka is officially licensed and completely rebuilt with High Res assets designed to look fantastic at native 4K and on the entire family of Xbox consoles. Not only is the track completely rebuilt and updated, Suzuka also features wet weather conditions for the first time in Forza history. Imagine tackling the “S Curves” at full speed, or barreling around the harrowing 130R, only this time battling the dynamic puddles that line the edges of the circuit, and the blinding spray of the cars in front of you. The same challenge that real-world drivers face at Suzuka lap-after-lap, will now be your challenge as well.

Returning Fan-Favorite, Maple Valley
FM7_TrackReveal_MapleValleySpeedway_4K1.jpg
I might be wrong, but I could swear I heard an audible gasp of excitement on the Interwebz back at E3 when we confirmed that Maple Valley would be returning with Forza Motorsport 7. Is there a more lauded, more beloved track in the Forza universe? Whether you’re looking to test your sideways skills on one of Forza’s best drifting tracks, or you want to push the edges of speed on its sweeping corners, Maple Valley is a masterpiece in every respect. Like Suzuka,...

This is week five of the Forza Motorsport 7 Garage and we’re bringing a huge list of cars to the game – cars that represent a worldwide sample of automotive excellence, with a particular focus on the best cars coming out of Europe. When curating this list of cars to reveal, we pondered the following question: what defines the “soul” of a European car? Some might point to quality, exemplified in cars like the Audi RS 4. Others will point to timeless design – think of the BMW 2002 or the Renault Alpine A110 as prime examples. What about incredible performance? With cars like the 2013 Caterham Superlight R500 and the 2012 Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series, drivers will never lack power and agility. Is it luxury you want? Look no further than the likes of Bentley and Rolls Royce.

Many of the cars featured this week have been bred from the most competitive and cosmopolitan race series in the world. The sumptuous lines of the Italian cars may catch your eye, or perhaps the unending search for perfection that defines German engineering. The automotive soul of Europe and all its facets can be found right here this week, all soon to be driven in Forza Motorsport 7.

Now, check out the cars of week five, starting with our weekly spotlight car which was once deemed “too fast to race.”

2013 Caterham Superlight R500
Caterham_R500_Superlight_01_WM_FM7_CarReveal_Week05_4K1.jpg
When the cars you built for racing become banned from racing and breed franchise slogans such as “Caterham Seven, the Car That’s Too Fast to Race,” you know you’re doing something right. The Caterham Superlight is the latest masterwork created by one of the patriarchs of racing design, Colin Chapman. The basic design of the Superlight R500 originates from the bones of the Lotus 7 which has existed in a mostly unaltered form for more than 50 years. Sure, there has been evolution in materials, tweaks to dimensions, and the old live-axle rear suspension has long been replaced by a De Dion rear axle. At its heart, however, this...

Welcome to week four of the Forza Motorsport 7 Garage, where we are well on our way to revealing the more than 700+ vehicles that will be a part of Forza Motorsport 7 at launch. With hundreds of cars to race, customize, and explore, this week we’re focusing on the “exploration” part of the game. After all, every car in Forza Motorsport 7 features a full Forzavista experience, thereby allowing players to discover each car’s unique characteristics in exquisite detail. Nowhere is the Forzavista level of detail more apparent than with car engines. Consider two fan favorites: the 2017 Ford GT and the Subaru Impreza 22B STi, both of which feature fully modeled engines in Forzavista for the first time in Forza Motorsport 7.

Two years ago, the GT debuted in the Forza franchise before it was even completed in the real world. For Forza Motorsport 7, the team at Turn 10 returned to Ford Performance’s masterpiece for another round of sourcing, this time with a focus on capturing all the magic of the Ford GT’s Eco-Boost engine and its intricate components. For the Subaru Impreza 22B, the team travelled halfway across the world to source a completely original car – including all factory stickers and zero modifications – giving players a rare glimpse at this beloved Subie.

With Forzavista, details matter and we can’t wait for players to explore their favorite cars in Forza Motorsport 7. In fact, we’re making the Forzavista experience even better by allowing players to explore cars not only in our gorgeous pre-made home spaces, but also track-side before the race begins.

This week in the Forza Motorsport 7 Garage we are proud to announce a deep list of cars from America; more than 100 cars and trucks from as early as 1970 (earlier models were announced during week 2 "Vintage Week"). Whether you prefer classic muscle or the latest trends from Detroit, this week’s lineup will...
