One of the most hotly-anticipated cars has arrived in Forza
Motorsport 7 – the 2017 Porsche 911 RSR. The fan-favourite race car is an “exclusive
car” in the game, which means it can’t be purchased from the in-game store like
most other vehicles, and can instead only be acquired from exclusive in-game
events or the Auction House. It was added in the December Content Update with
the vehicles from the Doritos Car
Pack, and features 500+ horsepower worth of rear-wheel-drive racing
Players will be able to unlock and drive the 2017 Porsche
911 RSR by competing in a new Rivals event with Head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, on Hockenheim
National Circuit – one of Germany’s most beloved circuits. The event begins on
Monday, December 11th, and any player who sets a time on the event will be sent
the 2017 Porsche 911 RSR once the event closes on January 3rd, 2018.
Those who beat Phil’s time will also win another exclusive
bonus car, which will be voted on by players in a poll being posted on Tuesday,
December 12th on the official Forza Motorsport Twitter account.
The Bounty Hunter Reward car will then be revealed in next Friday’s edition of
the Week in Review.
Look for Phil – Gamertag: ‘P3’ – to set his initial time after the event opens
Since the launch of Forza Motorsport 7, developer Turn 10
has rewarded players with a number of “exclusive cars” from the game in its
ongoing Bounty Hunter Rivals series. It started with 2017 IndyCar champion
Josef Newgarden on Road America in October, followed by Turn 10’s Creative
Director Dan Greenawalt in November on Laguna Seca in his very own Ford Mustang
For those who are curious about “exclusive cars,” they can be
found on the ‘Car Collection’ screen in Forza Motorsport 7. These were typically
known as “unicorns” or “engagement cars” in previous titles, and cannot be
earned from Prize Crates. Turn 10 says it wants players to experience these
cars by playing the game and participating in the community.
In the November Bounty Hunter, players could earn the 2016 W
Motors Lykan HyperSport, the 2004 Ferrari Scaglietti, and the 2010 Audi TT RS
Coupe. Exclusive cars can often be bought from the Specialty Dealer or Auction
House, or unlocked through the Forza Driver’s Cup Career Mode, Forzathon events
or Forza Racing Leagues.
