We’ve got good news for gamers with an incurable obsession over “Need for Speed” movie’s Spanish supercar. The fun-filled adventure and experience of turning your dream car into virtual reality is here at last. Forza Horizon 3’s latest bundle now offers the V10-powered 2016 GTA Spano ---for free.
The first and only thing you will ever need is to get the original Forza Horizon 3 video game. The downloadable Spano supercar clad in Duracell-themed livery is the latest addition to the FH3’s Ultimate Edition. Also, those with the “Blizzard Mountain” expansion pack or “Car Pass” need not purchase the Duracell livery separately.
GTA Spano only comes as a bonus on top of the newly added cars to the series. From the Xbox Store, all you have to do is search for: “Forza Horizon GTA Spano”, and that’s it. Since it goes with the launch of the Duracell Car Pack, expect not just one but a total of 8 cars (old and new) to be wearing the same livery.
“Duracell Car Pack” consists of a 1972 Land Rover Series III, 1959 BMW 507, 1995 Nissan Nismo GT-R LM, a 1983 Volvo 242 Turbo Evolution and 1992 Ford Falcon GT. Other than the new GTA Spano, Forza Horizon 3’s Duracell-powered line-up also features the 2015 Jaguar XE-S and the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro.
Initially showcased in Geneva two years ago, the GTA Spano boasts a 912hp (925PS) and 992lb-ft (1,250Nm) of torque 8.0-liter V10 turbo engine. This allows the Spanish supercar to dash from 0-62 miles per hour (100km/h) in as short as 2.9 seconds. All the same, a seven–speed sequential gearbox sends power to the rear wheels.
This is exactly the same updated version of the GTA Spano that goes with the racing game’s latest offer. Even if it only exists in the gaming world, it’s still pretty cool that what was dubbed as a “totally new car” and was limited to just 99 examples could be yours at no extra cost.
Only last week, TATA has also released a digital version of the Racemo sports car for the same gaming platform. The Forza Motorsport 3 that is. The Racemo is the leading Indian car manufacturer’s first venture through TAMO, its new sub-brand. Mated to a 6-speed automated manual transmission with paddle shifters, Tata’s sports car is backed up by a 190hp (141kW) and 155lb-ft (210Nm) of torque 1.2-liter turbocharged engine. For those who missed the exhibit, the Racemo concept is still on display at the 87th Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland.
