The Italian super sedan has made its video game debut in Forza Motorsport 7 as part of a new downloadable car pack.
With over 700 digital cars at your disposal, the recently released Xbox One racer Forza Motorsport 7 has one of the largest and most diverse vehicle rosters to ever feature in a video game. You know this is a game designed for gearheads when its reveal coincided with the public debut of the Porsche 911 GT2 RS that also features in the game. And now Forza Motorsport 7’s car selection has just got better with the video game debut of the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio. You may already know that we're a bit besotted with this sublime sports sedan.
Available as part of a new awkwardly-titled Samsung QLED TV Car Pack, the Italian super sedan joins six other new cars added to the racing simulation. The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio needs no introduction. As comebacks go, this is about as good as it gets as Alfa Romeo is attempting to re-establish itself in the US after a 21-year absence. Powered by a Ferrari-sourced 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 that sends 505 hp to the rear wheels, the Giulia Quadrifoglio still holds the record for the fastest ever four-door car to lap the Nurburging. Let’s hope appearing in one of the most popular racing game franchises gives the car some long overdue exposure.
Also making its video game debut is the Abarth 124 Spider which packs a 1.4-liter turbocharged engine producing 160-hp, making it one of the tamest cars in the pack. There's also the F1-winning 1957 Maserati 250F, 1984 Nissan #20 Coca-Cola Bluebird Super Silhouette, and the ferocious 1978 Porsche #78 MOMO 935/78 for motorsport affectionados.
Also included in the pack is the 2015 Honda Ridgeline Baja Trophy Truck and 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser Arctic Trucks AT37, both of which seem like they belong in Forza Horizon instead of the track-focused Forza Motorsport 7. Players can download the Samsung QLED TV Car Pack as part of the Forza Motorsport 7 Car Pass, or it can be purchased separately for $6.99.
