Latest Forza Motorsport 5 Pack Includes Rolls-Royce, Formula E Debut

There’s always plenty of excitement any time a new car pack is released for the exciting Forza Motorsport 5 racing simulator, but this latest content update brings a pretty impressive lineup of models. Headlining the pack of new cars are the Formula E Spark-Renault SRT_01E racecar and the Rolls-Royce Wraith.

For Rolls-Royce, this marks the automaker’s first time ever appearing in a video game, and what better car to use for such a debut than the sleek and stylish new Wraith with its fastback design and powerful V-12 engine. “We are delighted to mark a first in video game history by introducing Wraith, the most powerful Rolls-Royce ever made, into Forza Motorsport 5,” said Marc Mielau, general manager marketing for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.

Possibly even bigger, though, is the Formula E racecar, which is also making its gaming debut. The cool part of this car is that it will also kick off a new contest. The Formula E contest pits online drivers against each other, and whoever comes out on top will receive two VIP passes to the Formula E championship in Berlin, Germany on May 30, 2015 including a chance to meet drivers, hang in the hospitality area and watch the race from the grandstand; the grand prize winner also get 5,000,000 in-game credit, which also will be given to the nine second-place racers. An unlimited number of third-place racers will receive 250,000 in-game credits.

That isn’t where the fun stops either. This update also bring cars like the 2015 Ford Mustang GT and the 2013 Vauxhall Astra 1.6 Tech Line Top Gear Edition. Rounding out the lineup of new cars being added, the 2014 Infiniti Q50 and the Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge concept will also give users the chance to experience these cars. The Forza Motorsport 5 update is available today, and below, there’s a video of the two Infiniti cars in action.
