The 2016 Honda Civic GRC, an official rallycross car, will be coming to Forza Motorsport 7 in the future, according to a video shared by GameStop TV that offers a tour of Turn 10 Studios.

The video showcases different aspects of the studio, as well as a few screens in the background with the game running on them. A couple shots feature the Honda Civic GRC, which is shown in both gameplay and in the menu homespace before the initial track load-in. The video was shared onto the Forza Reddit page last night.

The video shows the car on Virginia International Raceway in an Autocross event, which is the same Showcase Event in the Forza Driver’s Cup featuring Tanner Foust’s Volkswagen Beetle GRC.

The 2016 Honda Civic GRC was also spotted in game files from the Windows 10 PC version of Forza Motorsport 7 recently by Reddit user TheAdmiester, alongside the 2016 Lexus RCF GT3, the 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat BT, and the 2077 ‘Fallout Atom’ – another car from Bethesda’s Fallout universe, similar to the Rocket ’69 from Forza Motorsport 6.

When it’s eventually added to Forza Motorsport 7, the Honda Civic GRC will join Ken Block’s Ford Focus RS RX and Tanner Foust's GRC Beetle, as well as a multitude of different stadium trucks and dune buggies, alongside the massive variety of off-road cars in Forza Motorsport 7. 

It all makes the likelihood of an off-road-themed expansion for the game even more likely, and we recently shared why we believe expansions for IMSA and off-roading will be released for Forza Motorsport 7, with the latter likely being GRC branded with the Honda Civic GRC as its hero car.

 

With recent advancements to the ForzaTech engine, which can run different off-road surfaces as seen in Forza Horizon 3 with sand, gravel, dirt, water, and snow, there’s nothing that can technically stop Forza Motorsport 7 from finally expanding out and featuring off-road game mechanics with official rallycross tracks. It would make all those off-road vehicles in the game far more useful and welcomed as well.

You can check out the studio tour video for yourself above, which is hosted by GameStop’s Erik Conway and Forza’s Community Manager Brian Ekberg. When the 2016 Honda Civic GRC makes its official appearance in Forza Motorsport 7, we’ll be sure to let you know.
