Supercar Challenge has returned to Forza Motorsport 7, and this week, our very
own car aficionado Tom Matthews
will be taking the 2018 Honda Odyssey onto the Top Gear Test Track in Dunsfold,
England in a bid to make it faster than the 2011 McLaren 12C and set a better lap-time
than the acclaimed supercar.
The 2018 Honda Odyssey minivan was requested heavily by viewers
in the comments of Tom’s most recent episode – which put the 1994 Mazda MX-5
to the test. The FWD minivan is the biggest vehicle to feature in the Budget
Supercar Challenge and set a stock time of 01:33.500 on the Top Gear Test Track
after 3 laps without any upgrades.
With 23,000 Credits spent on the minivan itself, Tom has 77,000
Credits leftover to spend on upgrades – including a drivetrain swap to make it
AWD. After spending 97,750 Credits – the Honda Odyssey ‘Superleggera’ is born –
and it’s at S Class with a PI rating of 800. The minivan has also seen massive
weight reductions with bigger, fatter and grippier tires, as well as the
addition of a Forza Aero bodykit.
The time set by the 2011 McLaren 12C as the overall
benchmark for this series is 01:13.750. That time remains intact for this week’s
episode as the 2018 Honda Odyssey ‘Superleggera’ minivan is put to the test. To
see how well it does and whether Tom manages to outperform the McLaren supercar
in his minivan, plus some sliding and the usual round of slip-ups, be sure to
check out the above episode for yourself!
As usual, the video integrates both the cockpit camera view
and the replay angles in Forza Motorsport 7 – adding to both the difficulty and
immersion of the challenge, whilst offering viewers a cinematic look at the
action on-track as the upgraded Honda Odyssey ‘Superleggera’ minivan attempts
to beat the time of a McLaren 12C within 6 laps on the Top Gear Test Track.
Should you wish to take on the challenge for yourself using
the minivan, the 2018 Honda Odyssey was added to Forza Motorsport 7 in the K1 Speed
Car Pack. Available for $7 on the Xbox and Windows Store, and included in
the Forza Motorsport Car Pass – which is the final Car Pack to be featured in
the Car Pass, the 2018 Honda Odyssey, as well as the six other cars featured in
the pack are yours, ready to collect, race, and customize in Forza Motorsport 7.
