March Meguiar's Car Pack

March Meguiar’s Car Pack (Taken from http://forzamotorsport.net/en-US/new...uairs_Car_Pack)

February 26, 2013 by Brian Ekberg


If it’s bigger than a breadbox it might be a car from the March Meguiar’s Car Pack. This collection of lust-worthy automobiles has a lot to offer Forza Horizon fans. Wagon? Check. Hot hatch? Check. Grandiose off-roader? Check. In other words, another awesome Horizon pack. Your free sample car is the one and only Nissan 390, a million-dollar wide-body JDM masterpiece. Rounding out the pack, we have the latest from the makers of the ultimate driving machine and a track-ready Ferrari that was a highly sought-after unicorn car in Forza Motorsport 4.

The March Meguiar’s Car Pack is coming to Forza Horizon on March 5 and will be available for 400 MS points. Let’s kick things off with a look at the awesome trailer for the pack:


And now, check out each of the cars in all their glory:



2013 Audi RS4 Avant

This kind of performance is usually reserved for sport coupes, and that’s what makes the RS4 Avant so remarkable. Start with a wide body, low stance, and a roof spoiler to get your attention. Inside, you will find a direct-injected V8 that produces more than 400hp as it screams to a stratospheric 8,250 redline. There aren’t any other wagons capable of toting the family and a weekend’s worth of gear at up to 174 mph. The sound of the RS4 Avant making revs is symphonic. If you don’t already have a family, this car is capable of attracting the means to build one.



2013 BMW M135i

The M badge has always been synonymous with performance. In the case of the M135i it means exactly that--M performance. The M Performance line is positioned as a bridge between standard BMW models and the highly-upgraded M series. What you will find is the comfort, styling, and road-gripping enthusiasm that you expect from an M badged BMW, combined with the day-to-day drivability of a standard Bimmer. The M135i fills the gap left by the M Coupe. Similar in form, yet conceivably more adapted for small families, its performance will still leave you wanting for nothing. The twin-scroll turbo inline six-cylinder’s 300-plus horsepower is just the beginning of many reasons to love the M135i.



2012 Mercedes-Benz G65 AMG

Owning a G65 AMG goes beyond status and wealth. It represents the absolute pinnacle of off-road performance. With a price nearly as staggering as the power delivered by twin-turbo V12, you can expect it does everything but stop bullets in its factory-built form. Its looks are stately enough to be parked in front of the most elegant of mansions, but its capabilities make it just as welcome on an African safari. The G65 AMG is the "most powerful series-produced cross-country vehicle in the world"—according to Mercedes-Benz. In addition to the price barrier, the only way to drive one in the U.S. is to experience it in Forza Horizon. The G65 AMG is ready for rallying or a flat-out top speed run on the open road.



2003 Ferrari Challenge Stradale

This track-bred prancing pony is ready to light a fire under anyone bold enough to attempt to tame it.
Get ready to reel in this lightened, sharpened, and honed instrument of driving delight. Based on the 360 Modena, the Challenge Stradale loses up to 243 pounds (depending on how it is optioned), gains slightly more horsepower, and is more responsive than ever. The end result is a track day car that delivers inspired agility and driver feedback. While the stripped interior and carbon fiber seats may not be apt to road tripping, the 360 CS can still be driven daily.



2004 Peugeot 206 RC

A hot hatch with French flair, the Peugeot 206 RC was the French car maker’s best-selling model, but its production almost never happened. Figuring the supermini would no longer be profitable, Peugeot phased out the 205 and introduced both the smaller 106 and the larger 306. Much to the company’s surprise, sales dropped while consumers flocked to similar models from other manufacturers. Once the 206 was belatedly introduced, sales took off again. The Peugeot 206 RC borrows its 2-liter powerplant from the larger 306 line and brings a nimble sport suspension to conquer the twisting and turning roads of Forza Horizon’s Colorado. Need a new rally car for the stable? The 206 RC once properly equipped will rage the curvy and bumpy circuits of the rally pack.



1998 Nissan R390

Its race-bred twin, the R390 GT1, took four of the top ten spots at Le Mans in 1998. This single street-bred version was created not only for homologation but was the model from which the GT1 race car was built. Nissan never sold the R390, but it was valued at a cool million. The car is made entirely of carbon fiber, runs on a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V8 that delivers 550 horsepower, and, even though it is long and wide, only weighs in at 2,200 pounds. Essentially the R390 is a GT1 race car with street legal exhaust and lights. Taken from the 300ZX, the headlamps give a hint of Nissan styling, along with the distinct twin front grilles. From there it is nothing less than a unique one-off Nissan super car, the likes of which most of us will never see on the road.



2010 Joss JT1--Season Pass Bonus Car

While the world is still anxiously awaiting the first Joss JP1 (the production model) to be produced, the prototype JT1 has caught the automotive world by storm. This bespoke supercar has achieved amazing performance figures in testing. What’s even more interesting however is how the car’s aerodynamics create incredible downforce without the need for wings and spoilers. Every external form of the JT1 has a purpose and, in some cases, more than one function. In partnership with Motec for engine design and Albins for the transaxle, this pure Australian-bred supercar has potential to match the likes of Ferrari and McLaren. Joss expects to build only 25 JP1’s in 2013. You can bet when they start rolling off the line the finished product will be mind-blowingly awesome.

The Forza Horizon March Meguiar’s Car Pack will be available Tuesday, March 5. Each car is available for 240 MS Points or you can purchase them as a pack for 400 MS points. Coinciding with the release of the March Meguiar’s Car Pack we will also be releasing a new batch of Community Rivals Mode events to compete in. Pick up the March Meguiar’s Car Pack, then head over to “Race Central” at the Horizon Festival, select “Rivals” and then go to the “Monthly Rivals” section.

Wow, they actually did a decent job with this pack. Probably want to impress Season Pass holders so that people purchase the next car packs.

I'd actually care to try all of these other than the Ferrari.

So, I was pretty excited for this pack, unfortunately, it wasn't that great, and I didn't have much fun to be honest.

Peugeot awesome C class playground games car and b/c circuit racer.

R390 kills it as R2 circuit racer.

Audi good for street races A and S class.

Merc is best SUV for A class playground.


BMW and Ferrari still working on.

Joss season pass car will be good circuit racer.

Overall I thought poor on paper but very good on the road.

To be able to talk about the dlc in the past tense suggests to me that your issue is more with the game that no longer holds your interest than the dlc.

I have not finished experimenting with builds yet.

Not criticising you for your opinion but can't see dlc can be in the past tense yet if you still actively played the game.

The game doesn't really hold my interest to be honest, but I had the Season Pass, so decided to download and play all available car packs. I logged on today, and experimented with the 3 cars I was most excited about for a good amount of time and didn't have too much fun. I didn't find the experiences with any of them unique and/or fun. This is coming from someone who thinks the 1966 Ford Country Squire was the an actual good download in the last car pack.

The reason it's in the past tense is because I no longer plan to continue the game after today unless I log on to give some cars away. I tried to experiment, but didn't enjoy the pack quite honestly.

I've made these quick videos for those interested in the pack. Just some info, personal opinion and gameplay, nothing too serious:

Audi RS4 Avant:
Mercedes-Benz G65 AMG:
