For those still interested!

The "Forza Motorsport 4 VIP Membership" is now available for 1200 M$P. From the download page:

Quote
Forza Motorsport 4 VIP members will receive five (5) Limited Collector’s Edition cars: 2011 Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, 2011 Ferrari 458 Challenge, 2011 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera, 2010 Noble M600, and the 2011 RUF Rt 12 R. Members also receive special gift cars from Turn 10, access to exclusive events, in-game VIP designation, and expanded storefront and media slots. VIP members receive discounts on the Porsche Expansion Pack as well as on eligible new FM4 add-on packs.

That "as well as on eligible new FM4 add-on packs" is interesting, but it would have been more helpful if they ballparked how many more add-on packs might be coming.

And regarding the Porsche Pack, this is Turn 10's Porsche Pack Facebook page where they have been revealing two cars a day for the past week or so, the last reveals will be on Monday and the pack is available on Tuesday.

I thought Forza already had a VIP designation for those that bought the special edition?

It does. This new offer allows those who didn't buy the original Limited Collectors Edition to also have VIP status.

Another month, another car pack! The Meguiar’s Car Pack. A more interesting pack than usual; 1940 Ford De Luxe Coupe, 1958 MG MGA Twin-Cam, 1963 Volkswagen Beetle, and several more rather unusual choices... oh, and the 2011 Chevrolet #4 Corvette Racing ZR1. Arrives next Tuesday.

Just got the new pack. Once nice thing is that five of the ten cars are F class, three at the very bottom. For me that means I can upgrade and they still are fun to throw around with no assists. The Ford 1940 Coupe is slow... three gears just isn't a lot. Will have to fix that.

Still a bit bummed they upped the people in a multiplayer race to 16 from 8, and we never even had a full 8.  When Forza 2 was out we regularly had to cut people since we'd have more than 8 wanting to race.  Stupid Rivals mode stole my multiplayer!  icon_evil

The 1963 Beetle; souped up to 93 hp, a nice F200 car. Roof rack will cost you extra:




The 1958 MG MCA Twin-cam, PI is E275. Note the spare slick on the boot lid:




Finally, the 1940 Ford 'Coupe, a D350 racer, once you remove the pesky bumpers:



All available in the club GTF garage.

The 2013 SRT Viper GTS Bonus Pack is now available and it's free. There's a new Autovista entry (no Jeremy, but the regular announcer goes into a lot of detail) and one car for in-game purchase, the 2013 Viper GTS (PI S638 icon_eek). There appears to be a problem right now in that the car isn't available yet for in-game purchase, but I assume that will be cleared up soon.

I'm up to about level 135 in the game which must have triggered something as I was just gifted the unicorn Ferrari 2003 Challenge Stradale. Cool.

This past weekend I watched the entire TV coverage of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Lots of fun actually.

Tried again after an hour but still no new Viper. Ah, these clever people Roll Eyes. It's not listed under "Dodge", it's listed under the manufacturer "Viper". Sheesh, could have told folks.

I did get gifted another car from Turn 10, a 1998 TVR Cerbera Speed 12. Hark should like the paint job...

The July Car Pack has been announced. Your secret car dreams have come true! In only seven days you will be able to drive (in Forza 4 of course) an AMC Gremlin! Oh, and the usual super car entries, another RUF, and three other old cars, including the Hudson Hornet.

The August Car Pack left me unimpressed so I didn't even bother to post about it...

The September Pennzoil Car Pack has been announced and it's actually interesting especially if you are burned out on new releases and race cars and yearn for older sports cars. The pack does include two Viper race cars and oddly they are the only entries which have screenies in the announcement. There are eleven cars in the pack, but two of them are the same Viper race cars, just with different liveries.

And the cars are:
2013 Viper #91 SRT Motorsport GTS-R
2013 Viper #93 SRT Motorsport GTS-R
1968 Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale
1960 Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato
1958 Austin-Healey Sprite MIKI
1953 Chevrolet Corvette
1965 MG MGB GT
1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SLR
1967 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia
1983 GMC Vandura G-1500
2011 Citroen DS4

Here's a link to an FM forum post with pics of all the other cars.

And in case anyone is interested, here is a link to an FM forum post with all the DLC cars listed by pack.

the Forza 4 Season Pass is 1200 Microsoft Points just for today(usually 2400 points)
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/news/news-12788-Forza-Motorsport-4-Season-Pass-Half-Price-Just-For-Today.html

Quote
The bad news is, the Season Pass is only available at a discount for today, which means if you want to get it on the cheap, you'll have to do it now, or as soon as you can. You get six car packs that normally cost 560 MSP apiece with the pass, so it's a bit of a bargain, especially at 50% off.

With all the new games coming out I haven't touched this for a month, but I got burned out on XCOM:EU and so I did some racing in my De Tomaso Pantera. It's not exactly stock... I upgraded it to a PI of S700, which meant installing 615hp and the usual upgrades and even a spoiler and wing. I hopped onto the Nürburgring and turned an 8:51 on my first lap with no rewinds. Cool icon_biggrin. I uploaded it to the GTF club garage in case someone wants to take it for a spun.

Wait, let me blow some dust off this thread.... that's better.

I hadn't signed onto Forza 4 for a while now, but when I do, I find two gift cars, one of which looks very familiar... It's the RUF given away in Forza Horizon. Nice that I get it in FM4 as well, it makes my tenth unicorn, so I get a new title and badge to boot.



I'm rather burned out on Horizon and without anything in there to look forward to except some new cars each month, I've gone back to FM4 for some winter driving fun.

Presenting the 1971 BMW 3.0 CSL, upgraded only a wee bit to E275, plus the funky rear wing. Looks like someone's racing line through the Corkscrew is a little off course:

Our next entry in the GTF garage is the 1994 Honda Civic 1.5 VTi, the "VTi" is Japanese for "I can't even get out of my own way". With Forza 4, problem solved! Upgraded with a fancy new engine and tires and this and that, it's now 354hp of RWD goodness. Sadly, it still can't keep you from being in someone else's way.

And it's pretty, too, battling with some puny ragtop:


Oops!!! I got it!! I got it!!!

On the prospect (as yet unfulfilled) of getting a gift tuned Scion FRS, I fired up Forza 4 after quite a while away. Since the promised car was not there I spent a little time in the game, buying and tuning the last E class car available (I had already done this for all the F cars). Here is the Citroen C4:



I have quite a number of stats, some of the more interesting are that my garage is worth 120 million credits, I have completed 916 races and I own 292 cars. Only a couple of hundred more to go.
