Our Inner Child Rejoices At Forza’s New Hot Wheels Pack

We’re gonna go out on a limb here and assume that, if you’re reading these words, you probably played with Hot Wheels when you were a kid.

Well now you’ll be able to again, only this time you won’t have to get down on your hands and knees to play with the little toy cars on the floor. Now they’re coming to your Xbox.

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the legendary toy brand, Microsoft and Mattel are bringing seven classic Hot Wheels cars to Forza Motorsport 7 as part of its latest expansion pack.

Some of the cars – like the Bone Shaker, Rip Rod, and Twin Mill – have existed until now only in miniature toy form. But they’re joined as well by a few toy versions of existing production models, like a 2005 Ford Mustang, 1969 Chevy Camaro Super Sport, 1970 Corvette ZR-1, and ’63 Volkswagen Beetle dragster.

Four of those cars – namely the Bone Shaker, Rip Rod, Twin Mill, and Mustang – are being added to Forza Horizon 4 as well. And there’s a handful of new racing suits released as part of the Downloadable Content for Forza 7, including a black and gold suit that’ll be gifted to all players, and five more that gamers will have to “earn” in the game.

You can check them all out in the gallery and video below. But the long and short of it is that the kid within us all will be revving up to play with our favorite toys again from the comfort of our couches placed in front out our TVs and consoles.

    “Racing game” with “real cars”, “simcade”, everything thrown out of the window with that nonsense

  • While more variety is good, I can’t help to say that current Forza Motorsport seems to be forgetting the Motorsport and Racing sim bits.
