Forza 7 Motorsport Gets Seven Special Vehicles From Barrett-Jackson

The folks beyond Forza Motorsport 7 have just rolled out a rather unexpected car pack for the popular racing game featuring some of the wildest vehicles from Barrett-Jackson.

In total, there are seven vehicles in the Barrett-Jackson Car Pack and all of them were either auctioned off by Barrett-Jackson or owned by people within the company.

Among the cars included in the Forza Motorsport 7 Barrett-Jackson Car Pack are the 1932 Ford Custom “Double Down”, the 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle Super Sport Barrett-Jackson Edition, and the 1963 Shelby Monaco King Cobra. And we don’t blame you if some of these names aren’t familiar to you – we don’t know all of them either.

Take the 1963 Shelby Monaco King Cobra, for example. There is only one example in the world and it was sold by Barrett-Jackson back in 2014. The racer features a Ford V8 displacing 289 cubic inches and utilizes four Weber carburetors to pump out a respectable 400 hp at 7000 rpm. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a five-speed ZF transmission. Despite its age, the racer also features four-wheel independent suspension and disc brakes at all corners. And it sold for $1.65 million.

“Barrett-Jackson helps enthusiasts fulfill their high-octane dreams through the greatest collector car events in the world,” chairman and chief executive of Barrett-Jackson, Craig Jackson said.

“Forza gives enthusiasts the opportunity to enjoy rare cars through a virtual experience. We’re honored to work with Microsoft’s Turn 10 Studios to join those two worlds through a fantastic, fun game that will inspire a new generation to be part of the car culture.”

The new Car Pack is available for individual purchase and included as a free add-on for those who already have a Forza Motorsport 7 Car Pass.
