2013 Civic Si Challenge and Honda Car Pack

Looks like on January 15th, 2013, we get a free Honda car pack that includes 3 cars. That's nice of them to do, although none of the cars really stand out.

2013 Honda Civic SI Coupe
HPD B-Spec Rally Fit
1986 Honda Civic SI Coupe

Quote:


"If Honda does not race, there is no Honda." Soichiro Honda founded an empire that lived by that philosophy and, over the years, the company he built has not only dominated racetracks worldwide, it has also made some of the most innovative and enjoyable driver’s cars around. In this spirit, Forza Horizon is proud to present the “2013 Civic Si Challenge” and the downloadable “Honda Challenge Car Pack” available on January 15, 2013, absolutely free.

Included in the pack are some great additions to Forza Horizon that wear the stylized “H” badge. The star of the pack is the 2013 Honda Civic Si Coupe, whose big league 201-horsepower engine is paired to a freshened design that puts its looks on par with its performance. The HPD Rally Fit is a special B-Spec road racer, built by Honda Performance Development and battle-tested at Pike’s Peak. And the 1986 Honda Civic Si Coupe was the Japanese hot hatch that set the stage for Honda’s greatest performance front-drivers.



In addition to the great new cars available absolutely free, there is a new Rivals event where you can test your mettle against a real Honda Racing driver, Scott Dixon – the “2013 Civic Si Challenge.” You’ll have to beat his time in a 2013 Honda Civic Si Coupe to be entered for a chance to meet Scott in person!

The “2013 Civic Si Challenge” can’t happen without you, though. It will be up to Horizon gamers to choose what track this event will take place on – the track with the most votes will host the event. Will it be Beaumont, the small town nestled at the foot of the Rockies that is home to so many illicit street races? The dense urban environment of Carson Park? The forests and tunnels of Gladstone? Or the sun-baked mesas of Red Rock? You decide! Look for the Honda section of Xbox LIVE for more information on the “2013 Civic Si Challenge” and the “Honda Car Pack” on Xbox LIVE and vote for your favorite track by January 8, 2013 to lock in your choice.

There will also be a photo contest, staring the 2013 Honda Civic Si, starting on January 15, 2013. All entrants will have a chance to win a custom-wrapped Civic Si Xbox 360 console. More details on the photo contest to come.

Remember, the “Honda Car Pack” will be available to download for free from Xbox LIVE on January 15. Don’t miss out on this great pack of cars, and don’t forget to participate in the “2013 Civic Si Challenge!”

That's great, but I doubt I will drive these if I've finished everything by then.

This game is certainly MS Points heavy as regards 'add-ons' so yeah it is nice for them to give something back for sure.... nice one Turn 10!

I'm looking forward to this. I'm a live and die Honda fan and recently upgraded from a 2008 Civic to a 2012 Acura TSX. Free is always nice too.

Free is good. Too bad they are Hondas. I will never use them.

Because you raced a bad driver. I have one myself and it's pretty close of my rx-8 I had before.

That's sweet that they are actually giving away something for free, and not ridiculously overpricing it lol. The now "13 civics are pretty dam nice IMO.

Ok i'm not sure where to go to ask this but, does anyone know the names of the 3 songs used in the ad on the dashboard? Well I know one of them is "Puppy" by Netsky. I'm really interested in the other 2 tracks. Thanks in advance.

I was bored, so I fully upgraded the 2013 Honda Civic Si Coupe. Video below, if anyone wants to see it 550hp in a Civic:


Was kinda fun, but ultimately, I kinda came to the conclusion that this game is pretty much terribly boring after you've completed everything there is to do within it.

I basically will just play 1-2 hours for all the remaining free car packs, and then sell it.
