Forza Horizon 3 is without a doubt one of the most popular entries yet into Microsoft’s critically-acclaimed and award-winning racing franchise. It’s currently the highest-rated Xbox One console exclusive and it remains popular more than a year after its release with a healthy, engaged player-base. With the recent Xbox
One X Enhanced version introducing 4K resolution support on console with several graphical upgrades, there hasn’t been a better time to revisit the Australian Horizon Festival or take a trip down under for the first time.
Forza Horizon 3 also had some of the most exciting Car Packs of any entry in the franchise yet with plenty of variety, including the latest supercars and hypercars, a selection of SUVs and classics, off-road racing beasts, and more. That’s not to mention the Porsche, Hoonigan, and Motorsport All-Stars Car Packs, as well as the excellent vehicles found in the Blizzard Mountain and Hot Wheels expansions.
Despite Forza Horizon 3 no longer receiving Car Packs since the release of Forza
Motorsport 7 last October, it hasn’t stopped popular YouTube content creator and Forza stunt-legend ‘Don
Joewon Song’ from creating his own Car Pack for Forza Horizon 3 in the form of a fan-made trailer. Just like the videos released by Microsoft and Turn 10 Studios that accompany each of the new Car Packs, Joe has made his own dedicated trailer for the Don Joewon Song Car Pack.
Not only is it a brilliant trailer with the cinematic-style camera angles and professional editing you come to expect from Joe’s videos, but it’s also an awesome and unique selection of cars. These include the widebody-equipped and street race-ready Lamborghini SV Horizon Edition, a monster truck-like beast in the form of a Ferrari 458 Italia Super Fighter, an off-road monster in the Jeep Wrangler Hoon Edition, a slammed-out Nissan 240 SX Horizon Edition, the beastly Nissan Skyline Horizon Edition drift machine, and an almost-naked Ford ‘Death Machine’ with an absurd 2,000 horsepower!
There’s also another off-road race machine in the Mini Countryman XL Raid, a widebody-equipped and stanced-out Honda S2K Stance Edition, the Jeep Trailcat transformed into an epic-looking ‘Dragcat,’ and finally, Ken Block’s Hoonicorn made into a ‘Super Fighter’ mini monster truck-like beast. With a total of 10 incredible cars featured, the Don Joewon Song Car Pack would undeniably be a triumph for the already-brilliant Forza Horizon 3.
There is also one more surprise at the end of the video in the form of the ‘Jet Fighter’ from the Surfers Paradise showcase event where the Lamborghini Centenario attempts to beat it in a special one-of-a-kind race event. Unfortunately, the Don Joewon Song Car Pack won’t be releasing for Forza Horizon 3, but it’s still a wonderfully put-together trailer nonetheless, and it’s probably a dream Car Pack for many us still exploring the land down under.
Make sure to check out the above trailer for yourself and be sure to subscribe to Don Joewon Song
on YouTube so you can be notified of more of his great content in the future. Also featured in this article are dedicated videos for the Hoonicorn Super Fighter, the Ferrari 458 Italia Super Fighter, the Ford ‘Death Machine,’ and the Nissan Skyline R34 Horizon Edition – all of which are featured in the pack. Let’s take a closer look at each of them now.
The Ferrari 458 Italia Super Fighter has 1,700-horsepower delivered from a BMW M3 V8 engine to create an off-road rally monster, and it’s the combination of a 458 Italia and a Rally Fighter. It has tires taken from a Polaris Buggy, the suspension from a Rally Fighter, and the base model swapped with a Halo Warthog – all combined for the ultimate Super Fighter. Then we have the Hoonicorn Super Fighter, a combination of Ken Block’s Hoonicorn V2 with the Ferrari 458 Italia Super Fighter. This insane beast comes with a whopping 2,000 horsepower under-the-hood!
The ‘Death Machine’ is based on the Ford De Luxe Five-Window Coupe – the Barn Find featured in the Hot Wheels Expansion, and one of the most customizable cars in Forza Horizon 3. This version is extremely unique, featuring wheels from a buggy, the chassis from a Lamborghini Urus, and a highly-modified V8 engine with over 2,000 horsepower with the suspension taken from a Ford Raptor. Meanwhile, the Horizon Edition cars featured in the Don Joewon Song Car Pack, including the Nissan Skyline R34 showcased in its dedicated video, feature additional power, extra perks, and special upgrades equipped.
So, with that in-mind, you’re likely wondering how Joe has these uniquely-customized cars in Forza Horizon 3, and that’s because he’s using the PC Developer Build that’s typically used by Playground Games and Turn 10 Studios as a test environment and debug scenario for the game. These have been made possible from his recently-built and high-end gaming PC. Overall, it’s well-worth checking out all his videos featured in this article, especially if you’re looking for some of the most unique Forza Horizon 3 vehicles out there that you simply will not find anywhere else.
