Gaming Hype: Two Vintage McLaren Race Cars Coming To Forza Motorsport 6

Forza6_1969_McLaren_M8B_small

Forza Motorsport 6 is coming and each week the team at Turn 10 is building anticipation with weekly announcements of chunks of the 450 cars that will be in the final game.  Today we find out that not one but two vintage McLaren race cars will be included in the roster.  The first of which is the 1969 McLaren M8B CanAm race car.  This #4 car was driven by Bruce McLaren himself in the ’69 CanAm series.  Bruce and his Teammate Denny Hulme actually ended up winning every race that year.  This car also provides a hint as to where the famous McLaren orange comes from.

The second car is the 1966 McLaren M2B Formula 1 race car.  This car represents McLaren’s first shot at Formula 1 racing.  It didn’t do very well in its first race but its what gave McLaren the F1 bug and started the legend that we know them as today.

While I obviously haven’t played the full version of Forza Motorsport 6 yet I have to admit that the inclusion of vintage race cars like these is really increasing my anticipation of the game.  I can’t wait to review it!  Oh, one more thing.  In addition to announcing these two cars Turn 10 also has another long list of cars they are announcing this week as well.  See it below.
