Forza 4 May Top Gear Car Pack release date, details

Wayne and Garth's car! A Smart car! A Ford Transit!

A brilliantly bizarre bunch of 10 new motors are heading to Forza Motorsport 4 on 1st May, inside the May Top Gear Car Pack.

The Ford Transit effect.

One of them, a brand new super car, accelerates so quickly it produces G-forces nearly equal to those felt by fighter pilots doing inverted loops! The 2012 Henessy Venom GT goes from zero to 200 miles-per-hour in 15.3 seconds - roughly the same amount of time it takes an average road car to reach 60 miles-per-hour.

The 2012 Henessy Venom GT has the highest power-to-weight ratio of any car, and only five will be built this year.

Countering that ridiculous performance is a Ford Transit van - the 2011 Ford Transit SuperSportVan, to be precise. This one's a bit tamer than the older, more suped-up Transits, but if offers gigantic white space for car painters to get busy with.

The May TopGear Car Pack also has a Smart car. It's the 2012 Smart ForTwo and presumably you can drive it off a cliff.

The other cars stuffed in are a 4x4 Jeep (2012 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon), the car from Wayne's World (1977 AMC Pacer X), a sophisticated sedan (1992 Misubishi Galant VR-4), a vintage sporty road car (1966 Lotus Cortina), a rally road car (1990 Subaru Legacy RTS), a brand new muscle car (2012 Chrysler 300 SRT8) and a vintage and quintessentially posh old convertible sports car (1965 Austin-Healey 3000 MK3).

All phwoar and stuff.
