The team at Turn 10 Studios have released another car pack for the Xbox One-exclusive Forza Motorsport 5, and have elected to show the new entries off with a new video chock full of in-game footage.

First and foremost, those that pay $10 for the IGN Car Pack (or have a season pass for downloadable content) will be gifted a 1961 Maserati Tipo 61 Birdcage, the stunning open-topped racer that used a 2.9-liter four-cylinder to haul about a meager 1,323 pounds. We promise, it's a riot to drive in the game.

Other additions include the 2013 Caterham Superlight R500, the 1964 Chevrolet Impala SS 409, the 2008 Lamborghini Reventón, 1984 Peugeot 205 T16, 1957 Ferrari 250 California, 2013 Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG, 1977 Ford Escort RS1800, 2002 Ferrari 575 M and finally, the 1969 Nissan Fairlady Z 432.

Scroll down for the video to take a look at just how sharp these cars are in the game.

      Being charged for cars that should have been included in the first place.

          don't buy those excuses. it is simply turn 10 who discovered quote:"DLCs is a great working business model for us."

      I've owned and played the heck out of every Forza game yet, from the first to Horizon, and loved them. This one, however, I'm skipping. If I do get an Xbox One, then I won't be buying this game until I see it used for $5. They stripped out way too many cars and tracks to meet the release deadline, then ask you to pony up tons of money for things which should've been in the game from the start. Even worse is the day 1 DLC. It's just a slap in the face to pay $60 for a game, on top of buying a new $500 console, and then being asked to pay a bunch more for the best cars in the game. Microsoft's greed is really showing through with this one.

        worst thing is, as you can see with these car packs, they probably did even finish more than they put in the same...just to be able to ripp you off even more. not even talking abt the wheel situation. they can fu** themselves!

      FU Turn 10! I own PS3 and Xbox 360, and also purchased PS4 and Xbox One at release date. I've always been an Xbox fan but like having the Playstation setup for their exclusive titles. Forza was always my go to racing game. We waited 5+ years for the last Gran Turismo installment and it was terribly weak. Now the Forza franchise is like a crack addict with their monetization. Each successive game they launch with fewer and fewer cars, more and more reasons for the reduction in launch cars, and then they so kindly make cars available in packs (for sale) that should have come with the damn game in the first place. It has left such a bad taste in my mouth. Forza 5 is a huge failure in my eyes. I will not buy another Turn 10 product unless they change their ways. I guess for racing now I've gotta wait 30 years for Polyphony to release Gran Turismo for the PS4. Sigh.

      I agree with the overall sentiment that MS and Turn 10 are screwing their loyal customers. The TRACKS are the biggest deal breaker. Less tracks, and very little incentive to produce more (their words). I've felt the shift within me embracing PC after a 8 year hiatus. I tried firing up my 360 (prompted by recently expiry of Gold Membership) and I just couldn't bring myself to tread through that interface. To know what thousands of dollars in software/content will remain entombed on this console. Thanks Steam for introducing me to 'Assetto Corsa'.

      What does that bring the grand total up to now? What an epic failure. Featuring a few more cars than the smash hit GranTurismo (1998, PS1).

      So they want me to pay $60 for a game with very few cars & tracks, then charge me to buy some that it should have come with anyway. Right. No.

        I totally agree, but they at least update the car models to a higher quality for the Xbox One, but for the most part even with higher fidelity these are still the same cars that were already available in previous Forza titles, even as paid DLC once before. There is no value here for the consumer, so buyer beware.

      Slightly off topic, but has anyone else that's played this game noticed how awesome the audio is? With a dedicated home theater set-up cranked to 11, driving through that tunnel in Prague is nothing short of awesome. Plus, the surround and rear channels sound amazing, especially when you have something distinct trailing your ass like the refined mayhem of a Ferrari F430 or the banshee scream from a Ford GT's supercharger. I don't know about you guys, but as a casual audiophile, I've been waiting since 1998 (GT1) for the ability to know what car is hot on your tail just from the sounds coming from your surround and rear channels. This game nails it. I also love how the car sounds completely different depending on where the theoretical "mic" is when you change views from inside the car, to the bumper, to behind the car. Amazing. There's something so visceral about flying down the downhill straight on Bathurst while the distinct sound of a Ferrari V8 at 8,000 rpms grows louder and louder from behind. In a tight race, it's genuinely nerve racking and without that audio, the game wouldn't be nearly as special or effective, IMHO. It's details like this that totally define the experience for me, and why to me, Forza is an |experience| where GT is merely a competent but ultimately anodyne game. It makes GT6 sound like, well...GT5. Blech.

        at least GT6 is a full game, drives better and the sound is getting worked on.

          Yeah, it's like GT3, GT4, and GT5 all rolled into one considering they reused the same last-gen assets.

      waste of money. forza 5 has half the cars of forza 4. gameplay itself is great though especially with XB1 haptic feedback
