News Racing Xbox 360 Microsoft

Microsoft has today revealed the details of the Forza Horizon pre-order plans and the limited edition collector’s release of the game. The game itself is set for release on the 23rd of October, 2012 and will come with a variety of different bonuses for those willing to pre-order or get the limited collector’s edition.

Fans of Forza who pre-order Forza Horizon will get a special Instant Incentive download code redeemable in Forza Motorsport 4 which will unlock the 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 if they pre-order at JB HI-FI or EB Games. That’s not all though, there is more in store for those who pre-order or get the limited collector’s edition. Microsoft outlined the bonus content in their press release:

In addition, fans who pre-order “Forza Horizon” at participating retailers will receive an additional token, while supplies last, to unlock one of the following five cars that will be instantly available when the game launches this October:

Exclusive to EB Games

  • 2010 Ferrari 458 Italia: A new Ferrari is always cause for celebration, and you can still hear the cheers from fans of the 458. The famed Italian automaker went above and beyond the call with this gorgeous example of road-devouring art. The 458 produces 562 horsepower and has a top speed over 200 mph, giving it the kind of performance needed to master the world’s greatest race tracks. 
  • 2010 Volkswagen Golf R: Available only in Europe as a limited edition model, this could be the sportiest Golf to date. 267 horsepower from its 2.0-liter turbo make it a kick in the pants when pushed, and it can be pushed all the way up to a governor-mandated 155 mph. Twin central exhaust tips, L shaped LED taillights, and plenty of glossy black give the Golf R a look that matches its performance.

Exclusive to JB Hi-Fi

  • 2012 Aston Martin Virage: Plush luxury meets awesome performance in the 2012 Aston Martin Virage. Comfortable enough for a long Sunday drive, yet sporting a blistering 490 horsepower V12, the Virage continues Aston Martin’s legacy of creating cars that deliver prestige and performance.
  • 2010 Nissan 370Z: The long line of Z model cars has a prestigious history and loyal following, but anyone can appreciate the beauty and power of this Japanese masterpiece. The 370Z features grippy handling and drift-worthy rear wheel drive, motivated by a 3.7-liter, V6 with more than enough juice to excite even the most die-hard of sports car enthusiasts.
