Not a bad pack; not a great one, mind. I mean, wouldn’t it have been nice for a pack with “Ralph Lauren” in its title to include something close to what the man may have in his collection? Maybe he has a Lykan, but I doubt it.
Speaking of the Lykan:
2016 W Motors Lykan Hypersport: OK, I get it. It was in an FnF, and obvs T10/MS has a good relationship with the series, so this was bound to happen. I haven’t driven it yet, but this car excites me about as much as a block of wood. Then again, I’m not really a hypercar guy, so we can chalk it up to the bias. At least we have something in FM6 with a moderate–indeed, very moderate–connection to Porsche.
2015 Nissan Impul GT-R: Now we’re talking. I wasn’t one of the JGTC fanboys that’s been lamenting the lack of content from the series in FM6, but I did miss having at least a cursory model in the game. Of course, my bigger hope is that this signals the impeding arrival of more JGTC stuff including tracks (although the lack of a proper JGTC number sticker on the car has me doubting that) , but it’s great to have this and I know there a re a lot of painters that have been licking their chops. May have to have more than one in my garage.
1973 Holden Monaro GTS 350: Now, I know from my travels that the Ozzies are loud, but not so loud to the point where T10 seems to be listening to their requests at almost every turn. I had no idea we’d see so many Holdens in the game, which I guess is pretty cool. While I haven’t yet driven it, the noise it makes in ForzaVista is freaking incredible (not to mention the full-size chrome wheel and tire in its trunk). Plus, it looks great in all its striped-out and lime green glory.
1973 Nissan Skyline GT-R: What a fun car. I love how it looks kinda bloated on its skinny tires, and the interior is glorious, as is the exhaust note. I’ve been using a bone stock version in rivals, and I’m really loving it. So far, it’s the car I’ve chosen to train myself to drive sans assists. Love, and while I’m sure sounding like one here, I’m not even a GT-R fanboy!
2014 Toyota TS040: I guess it’s cool to have, but the fact we already have the Rebellion car suggests this one is a little late to the party; if we’re talking Toyota racers, I would’ve rather had the Minolta car or the 7. Plus, I’m hearing it’s not that great to drive. And do cars flip in FM6?
2015 Formula Mazda: Any open wheeler is a good addition in my book, so I’m happy to have this. Should make for some interesting races against the Formula Ford. Oh, and dat noise doe.
1979 Opel Kadett C GT/E: Call me crazy, but this car (it was the free one for those that don’t have the pass, right?), is the star of the pack for me. For starters, it adds a new manufacturer to the game, which is always nice. Secondly, it sounds awesome and thirdly, it has quite the racing history. I was exited when I found out that we’d be getting modern Touring Cars in FM6; now it’s cool that we’re getting classic ones, too. As of right now, the Kadett, the Cortina, the RS1600, the '66 Silvia, the '73 Skyline, the RX-3, the Elan, the Giulia, the 2002, the Fulvia, the '74 Celica GT and the 2000 are the stars of the entire game. More like this, please.
