The folks from Turn 10 Studios and Playground games, creators of this fall's Forza Horizon, have announced details on their VIP membership program. This program will feature new levels of content and "excitement" and will be included in the Limited Collector's Edition of the game. It includes the following content:
2012 Audi R8 GT Spyder -- Going topless in an all-wheel drive super car might be illegal in some places, but just try and catch this culprit. The R8 GT Spyder has enough power and traction to leave nothing but the brief memory of its taillights in the mind of anyone trying to match its pace.
2011 Koenigsegg Agera -- The Agera is one of the most interesting of the current breed of hypercar. It certainly has the requisite manic power numbers courtesy of a 940 horsepower twin-turbo 5-liter V8. With a top speed of greater than 260 mph and a sub-three-second 0-60 mph time, no one can deny its performance.
2011 Lamborghini Sesto Elemento -- Faceted like a cut diamond, there’s no mistaking the Sesto Elemento for anything else on the road—even other Lamborghinis. Sesto elemento is Italian for “sixth element;” aka carbon, a not-so-subtle hint that the body is composed entirely of carbon fiber.
2012 Pagani Huayra -- When one thinks of Pagani cars, it’s natural to think of craftsmanship, performance, and a platonic ideal of automotive beauty. The Huayra has been a long time in the making as designer Horacio Pagani began work on the car in 2003. But, like all works of art—automotive or otherwise—true beauty takes time.
2011 RUF Rt 12 R -- Starting with the traditional 911 body-in-white, RUF completely rebuilds or replaces the rest of the componentry, and the result is stunning—730 horsepower and 693 ft-lbs. of torque, enough to rival all but the most extreme supercars. While the R can do things that few cars can equal, it does so precisely and without drama; a skilled driver can use this car as a finely tuned racing tool.
Along with the above cars, VIP members will also receive the following perks:
As mentioned before, you can get this VIP membership by getting the Limited Collector's Edition of the game. This special edition also comes with the following bonuses:
Forza Horizon will be Oct. 23 for $59.99 or $79.99 for the Limited Collector's Edition and is rated T for Teen by the ESRB.
