Forza Edition cars are racing into Forza Motorsport 7
Forza Motorsport 7 will include some special edition cars you'll only find in-game.
Forza Motorsport 7 will sport a load of cars for players to check out, as we've already seen with the weekly car reveals leading up to its launch. It turns out, however, that fans are also in for some special Forza Edition cars as well.
As Turn 10 describes in its latest Forza Garage reveal, Forza Edition cars will be unique versions of existing cars, tweaked and tuned in ways that you'll only find in Forza Motorsport 7. According to the post, the cars will "stand out from the crowd" with things like custom wide body kits, wheels and "gorgeous liveries." In addition to aesthetics, Turn 10 has also tuned each Forza Edition car to feel unique as well.
Players will be able to get their hands on Forza Edition cars as normal gameplay rewards through the Forza Drivers Cup campaign and Forzathon events. They'll also be available in the Auction House, Turn 10 says.
At the moment, the list of known Forza Edition cars is rather limited. Along with a special version of the 2017 Ford GT, the following Forza Edition cars are also available as part of the VIP Car Pack, which is included with the Deluxe and Ultimate Editions:
- 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Super
- Sport Forza Edition
- 2013 Ram Runner Forza Edition
- 2012 Nissan GTR Forza Edition
- 1992 Ford Escort RS Forza Edition
- 2014 BMW M4 Forza Edition
Forza Motorsport 7 is available for preorder now starting at $59.99 ahead of its expected October 3 release date.

This is a fine idea as long as there is a definite method toward acquiring the cars. The problem in Horizon 3 was that many of them were random rewards for leveling spins. I'm level 330+ in FH3 and have only received three Horizon Edition cars through the spins. The only way to get the most popular and useful ones (the Jaguar F-Type or the Boss Mustang shortly after FH3 released) was to pay multi-millions in the auction house. Turn 10 finally released some of them as rewards during Forzathon, but it was too little too late. Unicorn cars with one-off paint jobs or other cosmetic items are fine for limited editions, but cars that provide a competitive advantage need to be obtainable by anyone that wants to put in the effort to get them. The one thing I don't want to see happen is for Forza to take a page out of the old MMORPG game Motor City Online where unicorns were only released through the auction house and players had to keep a constant eye out for a midnight release in order to get one at a reasonable price. This is a racing game based on skill. Too many elements of chance and online presence that affect core gameplay is frustrating.
are these something like Horizon Edition cars in FH3? Those were upgraded (not sure if tuned or not), had bodykits and unique gold plates but no special livery
