The Fate of the Furious comes to Forza Motorsport 7

It's got everything but a submarine.

Forza Motorsport 7 doesn't launch for another week, but Turn10 Studios and Microsoft are announcing a second downloadable car pack for the game. This one takes vehicles from the eighth installment of the Fast and Furious series, The Fate of the Furious. It's a seriously comprehensive pack, including most every major vehicle in the film, except of course the giant submarine from the climactic final chase.

Of the 10 cars included, three have us most excited. One is the 1951 Chevrolet Fleetline that Dom Toretto drives in Cuba at the start of the film. It's beat-up, supposedly slow, and features just one upgrade: a big old turbocharger. Loads of body parts have been removed for weight savings, and the game allows you to examine every detail under the hood and the lovingly recreated patina. We're really interested in finding out how it will drive in the game. Gran Turismo 6 featured a 1948 Hudson driven by Mario Andretti that didn't look all that different from this Chevy, and it was pretty poor to drive, but entertaining nonetheless.

The next two cars are Mopars, and should be quite quick. Going by the movie's chronological order, we should start with the Dodge Demon. This car doesn't really need any introduction, since you all probably know about its 840-horsepower engine and wicked fast quarter-mile time. This will be the car's first appearance in a video game. The other Mopar is Dom's insane jet-powered Dodge Charger. We imagine it will be incredibly fast in a straight line, but all that weight in the rear can't be good for handling.

The car pack is free for players that buy either the deluxe or ultimate editions of Forza Motorsport 7. It will also be available as a standalone purchase for other versions from the online Xbox store. The pack will cost $9.99 and can be downloaded on October 3, the launch of the game.
