Article by Andrew Christian, on December 30, 2015

Forza Motorsport 6 fans rejoice! You can now add seven great cars to your collection in this highly popular racing simulator, thanks to the Mobil 1 Car Pack. Regardless of what your preferences or favorite activities are, there is something for everyone in the new pack of Forza Motorsport 6 Among others, the Mobil 1 Car Pack brings you the extraordinary chance to pilot a Koenigsegg One:1, the car that breaks barriers in speeds and acceleration.

You also have the 2016 Mercedes-AMG C 63 S Coupe, a beast of sophistication and functionality. Aside from these two monster cars, the 1990 Chevrolet #30 Douglas Shierson Racing Lola T90/00, which made rounds during Indy 500 of that year, is here.

It also now has the 1991 Mazda #62 Motorsport RX-7 of IMSA Racing fame. If you own a Forza Motorsport 6 Car Pass, then you’re in luck. The seven cars in the Mobil 1 Car Pack are only part of the 42 cars that you’re going to get in total, in return for your purchase of the Pass.

The Pass, you see, gives you access to seven cars each month for the next six months. If you don’t have the Car Pass, don’t worry. You can still buy the Pack for $6.99. If you’re only after a particular car, you could also buy each of them individually.

Here is the full lineup of the rides you get from the Mobil 1 Car Pack.

Koenigsegg One:1

It’s been only 12 years in the market, but Koenigsegg had already broken records of the times with its innovative cars. Whatever records it may have set with previous models are set to be broken again, this time by the new One:1 its Angelholm factory is currently working on.

The car is the first of its kind; it has an insane power to weight ratio of 1:1. What figures are we talking about? How about an insane 1341 horsepower output? That exceedingly powerful output propels a 1360 kilogram machine from 0 to 250 miles per second within 20 seconds, and is supposedly able to achieve a top speed of 273 miles per hour.

Koenigsegg even intends to take a shot at breaking lap time records at the Nurburgring, but, as a Forza Motorsport 6 player, you can see for yourself what the One:1 is really capable of by driving it for yourself thanks to the Mobil 1 Car Pack.

2016 Mercedes-AMG C 63 S Coupe

Drive it before you can buy it on dealer lots – the new Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupé won’t be available to the public until the summer of 2016 in Europe and 2017 in America.

Even if you are not considering the purchase of a top-of-the-line, two-door Silver Arrow, this baby is worth a spin. Whether you consider the 503 horsepower twin-turbo V8 (the same motor as the AMG GT that runs as a safety car for Formula 1) or the German refinements that abound in the interior and exterior stylings, this car will please your senses and keep your attention.

In short, the pinnacle of sports and luxury awaits you in Mercedes’ latest masterpiece. With the Mobil 1 Car Pack, you get an exclusive sneak peek to Mercedes’ newest coupe.

Set to hit dealerships in Europe by summer next year, and 2017 in America, players of Forza Motorsport 6 have the unique opportunity to drive and get to know the Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupe before anyone else does.

Experience the monstrous 503 horsepower output of the C63 S Coupe’s twin-turbo V8 drivetrain ahead even of those who have pre-ordered the car before its release.

Feast your eyes on the two-door Silver Arrow, and the distinctly German flavor in the car’s interior design and arrangement. All of these are yours to experience thanks to this new car pack for Forza Motorsport 6.

1990 Chevrolet #30 Douglas Shierson Racing Lola T90/00

This Lola T90/00 is the one that Arie Luyendyk piloted for Doug Shierson Racing in 1990. It was the vehicle that gave him the first of his two victories in the Indianapolis 500 races.

Luyendyk also took advantage of the Lola T90/00’s capabilities to its limits in order to reach a record-breaking average speed of 185.981 miles per hour.

It would take 23 years before Tony Kanaan achieved a faster average speed in 2013, so that speaks volumes about the advantages that the Lola T90/00 had over other cars of its time.

1963 Ferrari 250LM

The 1963 Ferrari 250LM is the product of aggressive competition between Italian car makers Maserati and Ferrari. In 1962, Ferrari defeated Maserati and other car makers at the Monza race track by grabbing the third, the second and first places in that year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans race.

The victories were possible thanks to the Ferrari 250P and a Ferrari 250 GTO. Because of its performance, Ferrari improved on the 250P and came up with the 250LM.

The Ferrari 250LM carried everything that the 250P has, but has features it can call its own like a roof and chassis tubes that are more rigid than the 250P. Ferrari only rolled out 32 units of the 250LM, which went on to win races in the prototype class.

1958 Plymouth Fury

The 1958 Plymouth Fury sure is not a racer, but it makes up for it with its aesthetics and raw power. The car’s body is given a glistening chrome finish and it has taken on a prominent winged appearance.

When you open the hood, you can find a Golden Commando V8 engine that spews out 305 horsepower when activated. The Plymouth Fury is a monster when it comes to hurtling at high speeds through a straight line.

What it lacks in braking and turning performance, it makes up for with raw straight acceleration and a dashing look that’s sure to turn heads.

That’s not a handicap – the Plymouth Fury came out during an era when looks mattered and it wasn’t expensive to fill up one’s tanks with gas. This is a beast of aerodynamics and streamlined features.

1988 Holden VL Commodore Group A SV

Peter Brock had left, so Holden turned to Britain’s Tom Walkinshaw Racing for help in building performance racers. The collaboration led to the establishment of the Holden Special Vehicles division.

One of the first products of that cooperation is the 1988 Holden VL Commodore Group A SV, which was later on called “Walkinshaw” as a nod to Holden’s British-based partner in designing this excellent vehicle.

The car was built with an aero body kit that makes excessive use of plastic-based materials, earning the car its two other nicknames: “Plastic Fantastic” and “Winged Warrior.”

Before you raise your eyebrow at the use of plastic, bear in mind that this material is a significant contributor to the Commodore Group A SV’s performance.

The lightweight material resulted to a drag that’s 25% less than any previous vehicle Holden has produced. Only 750 units of the car were produced. These were available only with a Panorama Silver finish.

1991 Mazda #62 Mazda Motorsport RX-7

The RX-7 has proven itself to be prolific when it comes to winning races in IMSA. By the time the year 1991 ended, the model has been driven to 106 victories in IMSA races. Pete Halsmer and Price Cobb contributed five wins in 1991 while on the cockpits of RX-7 #62 and #63, respectively.

Halsmer also snatched the championship while Cobb’s performance put him third in terms of driver standings.

As for Mazda, the Japanese car manufacturer became the champion car maker of IMSA in 1991 because of the pair’s achievements, which included 27 races finished with rankings in the top 5, as well as seven lap records and four pole positions.

All of these were possible thanks to the four-rotor 600-horsepower power train under the RX-7’s hood and the lightweight tube-frame chassis and wide design of the body.

Not even an IMSA mid-season decision to add 100 pounds of weight to the RX-7’s design hindered the two drivers from racking up the wins. Now, 24 years later, all of these capabilities are yours to command in Forza Motorsport 6, thanks to the Mobil 1 Car Pack.
