2023 Lamborghini Huracán Tecnica

With a design inspired by the Super Trofeo Evo2 racing line, the latest Huracán model has improved aerodynamics, stability, and has enhanced the overall driving experience without losing the striking and iconic Lambo DNA we all love and recognize at a glance. The Huracán’s mighty 5.2-liter V10 engine has 630 CV that can (and will) send you flying at 201mph. This new Huracán is built for the driver as it features new connectivity functions, customization of interiors, and different driving modes to give you the feel you want out of its electromechanical rear-wheel drive. Huracán Technica is a bridge between Lamborghini’s supercar pedigree and its future.

2022 Ferrari 296 GTB

The Ferrari 296 GTB redefines what a supercar is by putting together a petrol V6 and an electric engine that together can deliver 830 CV. The GTB is the very first Ferrari road car with an electric engine attached to the back of the combustion one and allows drivers to use both or stick to the electric only. 2022’s Gran Turismo Berlinetta’s build is centered on balance: the hybrid system is designed to give the car the lowest gravity center possible by placing the battery in the lowest position available. This car’s engine and overall design is inspired by Ferrari’s racing history taking ideas from the 156 F1, the 250 LM, and the 126 C2; and it will not shy away from the incredible speed and power offered by its predecessors.

2020 Ferrari Roma

The 2020 Ferrari Roma can be described with just two words: Style and Speed. The timeless and elegant design on the Roma conceals a powerful 3.8-liter turbo V8 engine capable of producing 620 CV. Aerodynamics were an integral part of this vehicle’s design: an active rear wing increases downforce and allows drivers to take corners quickly without losing an ounce of style, and the entire body of the car allows creates low drag when taking off. 70% of the Roma’s components are completely new and designed to improve the power-to-weight ratio making it one of the best of its class. 0-60mph will take you only 3.4 seconds, making the 2020 Ferrari Roma a must have for drivers who love to look good when going fast.

2020 Lamborghini Essenza SCV12

Just when you thought Lambo’s couldn’t get any wilder, the Essenza SC12 gets unveiled. This track-only monster is equipped with a 6.5-liter V12 engine that can produce a face-melting 819bhp. Born and raised to be fast, the Essenza’s chassis is built completely on carbon fiber which makes it weigh in at only 1376kg (3033.56 lbs). Every detail of this car’s exterior is designed to improve aerodynamics, air flow, and provide cooling for the engine, and, of course, scream “I want to go fast” when you look at it. This hypercar might be the pinnacle of Squadra Corse’s work to this day.

2020 Lamborghini SC20

The striking image of a one-off Lambo truly is a sight to be seen. The 2020 SC20 is a custom build with racing roots, original details, aerodynamic design, and the biggest engine Lamborghini has ever made: a 6,498 CC V12 with a seven-speed ISR transmission. The car is covered top-to-bottom in carbon fiber that has been polished by hand and is designed to allow the car to drive comfortably even at high speed. This no-roof, no-windshield, no-nonsense vehicle is a huge contender for the “Poster Car King” title.

2019 Italdesign DaVinci Concept

Built to mark the 500th anniversary of Leonardo DaVinci’s passing, the Italdesign DaVinci is an all-electric concept grand tourer that pays homage to one of the greatest and most iconic Renaissance artists and inventors. It’s designed first and foremost to be premium with intricate styling and details throughout both the exterior and interior, as if it’s a work of art by DaVinci himself. Its electric motors drive all four wheels, though Italdesign has approached this as a modular car that allows various electric motors and batteries to be swapped in from different automakers. If a petrol-powered car is desired, then it’s even possible to swap out the inner workings for a more conventional drivetrain. In fact, Italdesign tried and tested this themselves with a 4.0-litre V8 prototype showcased at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. While its overall aggressive looks and large gull-wing doors are certain to catch the attention of many, it’s the modularity provided by the DaVinci Concept that would certainly appeal most to esteemed car enthusiasts. If the DaVinci ever enters full production someday, which Italdesign says it could after a few small tweaks, then it’d certainly set a new bar for not only the constantly evolving electric vehicle market, but also the concept of car modularity and premium automotive design.

2018 Lamborghini #63 Squadra Corse Huracán Super Trofeo Evo

The successor of the Lamborghini racing breed is here with a brand-new body kit developed by Lamborghini’s Motorsport division which includes a rear fin and a roof air intake. The Super Trofeo’s styling was a hint at the future of its makers supercars that incorporate similar styling lines and features for road-friendly vehicles. But it’s not just about the striking and certainly unique exterior, the Super Trofeo Evo packs with a massive punch with its 5.2-liter V10 engine that produces 620 CV at 8250 rpm that made it run Monza in 1:34.3. And now you have more reasons to make this the car of your choice to run any GT World Championship.


I’ll use this thread to report back when I get a chance to play around with the cars (sometime tonight). Interesting PI ranges. Of course, @Rayne_SE was right. A couple of those cars will need to be de-tuned.

The #63 huracan will need a de-tune much like the Ferrari DLC race car.

I was intending to purchase this car pack but noticed that I’m not entitled to a Game Pass subscriber discount; should this be the case?

Why would it? Not all dlc is discounted for gpu

Good pack I think apart from the Huracan Tecnica.

Nothing against the car itself but there’s enough Huracans in the game already, the Super Trofeo version is distinct enough (and it’s actually my favourite car of the pack) but I don’t think the Tecnica is.


I AWD swapped the Super Trofeo to drop it into S1 class. It’s not a fast S1 car but it’s super grippy. I really like how it drives.


Mixed bag honestly.

The Italdesign is a dud overall, but to give credit where credit is due, it’s one of the better performing EVs. That being said, however, it is a concept, and an EV version actually doesn’t physically exist in real life (the actual concept has a V8 in it). So, in essence, this car is fictional, and that pretty much says it all. Also, not one of Italdesign’s better designs.

Though I had it my wishlist at one point, the Techina was very underwhelming and is vastly outclassed by the STO and the Performante. It’s this DLC pack’s Huracan Evo.

The Super Trofeo is solid, but I’m actually not a fan of including actual race cars in Horizon. Track day specials, I’m okay with, but this could’ve easily been a completely different car, and the pack would have been better for it.

The SC20 was another disappointment. Radical looking, but doesn’t control very well. It is AWD, so understeer is the order of the day, but, despite not having a roof, this is some how 200 lbs heavier than the SVJ if the in-game car data is to be believed. Combined with the additional drag caused by it being an open top, this is ultimately a car that isn’t as fun as it looks. Not sure if I would’ve been happy in real life if I was the person who commissioned it.

Finally, to the positives. The Roma was a solid car. Not too different from other front-engined Ferraris, but I enjoyed my time with it more than every other car I have mentioned up to this point. I will definitely use it every now and then.

The Essenza is also great. Grips like glue, not prone to too much understeer, fun as heck to drive up the paved side of the volcano. Highly recommend.

Best car for me was the 296. Reviewers in real life said this was like the revival of the 246, and it definitely shows. Handles like a dream, and it easily has the best engine sound of the bunch. Sounds like a modern version of the Dino V6 with a turbocharger on it. No complaints at all.


I have to pay ten bucks then find and add every single car from the auto show? am I missing something?

@T10ManteoMax as noted already, this doesn’t get the game pass ultimate discount; I just checked and it’s £7.99 for me but other DLC cars and packs are there are £2.24 rather than £2.49 so it’s registering my subscription okay

don’t they show up as “redeem free cars” somewhere? in the store tab in the horizon free roam menu maybe?

my biggest hope in life is that someday mankind has the technology to deliver DLC cars that I paid for straight to my garage


nope, I spent 20 minutes looking for that exact option, which I remember from previous purchases

This pack seems legit But I was little I disppointed I wanted to see the Maserati MC20, New redesigned Countach, and the revuelto but they did come in but the ferraris are on fire they seem to handle very well and up to speed so I can’t complain. I’m sure the new countach, revuelto, and MC20 will come in a future update or the next game I assume.


No complaints here…wouldve been perfect if it included the MC20


Wait….what??? No free first time purchase? Glad i have 490 mil fredits.

Interesting feedback. Looking forward even more to trying these when I get home.

Have to agree on the “mixed bag” sentiment from @Runoff1999; there a few gems in this pack but also a couple I will probably never touch again, which has me questioning the overall value of the purchase price. I will say the Essenza is a welcome addition & has one of the best engine sounds in the game IMO. I actually did a livery & Squadra Corse vinyl for the Aventador SVJ last year based on this racing livery, so pretty cool to now have it in the game.

Did a couple quick test drives in both the Essenza & Super Trofeo for anyone who has yet to purchase the pack & is interested in having a look.


First impressions:

Wow, the Italdesign DaVinci was bad enough before I went to drive it and realized it was an EV (:face_vomiting:) junker. Ugly as hell and it’s another E-crapbox? No thanks.

Now that the only bad car in this pack (imo) is out of the way, onto the Huracan Super Trofeo. Very fun car, my favorite in this pack. It’s very fast and very grippy stock, and it’s nice you can drop it into S1 with the AWD swap. This car brings back fond memories of the old Super Trofeo from FH3 and I love it.

The 296 GTB is wicked fast bone stock and I think it could be extremely competitive in S1 900 road even without much room for upgrades. Very similar to the SVJ in that regard. It’s been a while since I’ve driven a car in this game where my first reaction was “dang, this is FAST”, but this is definitely one of them.

The SC20 doesn’t really seem like anything special, just feels like another special version of the Aventador, which is even more overdone than the Huracan in my opinion. Seems like a successor to the Aventador J. Nothing special.

I can’t say too much about the Roma yet as I haven’t driven it a ton, but it seems like a fun cruiser and might be decent in S1. Also, drifts very well bone stock which makes me happy.

The Essenza feels insane bone stock. Handling is just ridiculous and with some power upgrades, I could see it being an absolute monster in S2. Possibly even up there with BTTB. You don’t even need to brake through a lot of corners with that thing. Absolute beast.

The Huracan Tecnica is actually pretty fun to play around with stock, and it feels like it might be decent in S1 similar to the Roma. I think I’m a fan of the RWD Huracans. I wasn’t looking forward to it when I saw the STO was coming, but I thoroughly enjoyed that one and I’m enjoying this so far. Much more than I ever enjoyed the AWD ones.
