How to get free and premium DLC cars in Forza Motorsport 6

Forza Motorsport 6 has launched at last. The latest in Microsoft's racing simulation series, Forza 6 includes over 450 cars, 26 tracks, realistic rain and fog, and night racing. With a 70+ hour career mode, new online leagues, and 24-car multiplayer races, it's safe to call this the biggest and best mainline Forza yet. But we can always want more, right? That's where downloadable content (DLC) comes in!

Early editions of Forza 6 include a free DLC pack called the 'Ten Year Anniversary Car Pack.' Microsoft also offers the 'Fast & Furious Car Pack' for $9.99. Downloading either pack will unlock the cars it brings, but they don't just show up in your garage. Read on for a quick guide to grabbing your DLC rides in Forza Motorsport 6!

Getting the Ten Year Anniversary Car Pack

If you bought the retail version of Forza Motorsport 6 at launch, a download code for the 'Ten Year Anniversary Car Pack' should have been included in the package. The pack includes ten cars decorated in special Forza livery.

Downloadable versions will have included it as a bundle with the main game, so you won't need to deal with codes. To actually start the download, follow these steps:

  • Highlight the Forza 6 tile on your Xbox One's home screen or from the My Games & Apps list.
  • Press the Menu/Start button on the Xbox One controller and select Manage Game
  • Scroll right and select Show all add-ons
  • Pick the 'Forza 6 Ten Year Anniversary Car Pack' and choose to Install
  • That's it!
