Forza Horizon 2 is just weeks away and soon Forza fans the world over will be exploring the high-speed highways and breakneck back roads of southern Europe.
Forza Horizon 2 will ship with more than 200 cars all built from the ground up on Xbox One, and as is the case with all Forza games, Microsoft will be constantly updating Forza Horizon 2 with new content.
Beginning on 3rd October to coincide with the release of Forza Horizon 2, Microsoft will be launching a brand new pack for the game: the Forza Horizon 2 Launch Bonus Car Pack. This car pack will feature eight cars representing the variety that can be found in the Forza Horizon 2 car roster – from rough-and-tumble trucks like the 1956 Ford F-100 to the raw power represented by the 2015 Ford Mustang GT. The Launch Bonus Car Pack will include three never-before-seen vehicles in the Forza franchise: the 2003 Ford Focus RS, the 1997 Land Rover Defender 90, and the 1993 Clio Williams. Best of all, all eight of the cars featured in the Launch Bonus Car Pack will be available to all Forza Horizon 2 players at launch for no additional cost.
Here’s the full list of cars in the Launch Bonus Car Pack:
• 2003 Ford Focus RS
• 1997 Land Rover Defender 90
• 1993 Clio Williams
• 2015 Ford Mustang GT
• 1987 Buick Regal GNX
• 2012 Cadillac Escalade ESV
• 1968 Abarth 595 esseesse
• 1956 Ford F-100
In addition to the Launch Bonus Car Pack, Microsoft also announced the details for Forza Horizon 2 VIP membership (discounted for current Forza Motorpsort 5 VIPs) and the Forza Horizon 2 Car Pass. As in Forza Motorsport 5, each purchased add-on car can be added to your in-game garage one time for free – without additional in-game credits.
Forza Horizon 2 VIP Membership (regular £15.99; 50% off or £7.99 for Forza Motorsport 5 VIP members) is like a backstage pass at the Horizon Festival, giving you access to cool content you can only get here. VIP members will receive exclusive benefits in Forza Horizon 2, including the VIP Car Pack, featuring five cars (four of which are brand new to the Forza franchise). VIP membership also awards with 2x player in-game reward acceleration, access to exclusive multiplayer events, in-game gifts from the Forza community team, and special in-game recognition.

The Forza Horizon 2 Car Pass (£19.99) gets you access to six monthly pack add-ons beginning in October, with each pack featuring five amazing cars. Plus, Car Pass owners will receive an exclusive bonus car for free: the 2010 Noble M600. That’s 31 additional cars to collect, race, and customise in Forza Horizon 2. More details on the first monthly car pack for Forza Horizon 2 coming soon.
