Forza Horizon 3 is a massively popular racing title for the Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs that by itself won the Best Racing/Sports category at the 2016 Game Awards. It’s tons of fun right out of the box, but it’s the constant stream of downloadable content (DLC) that takes the game to another level.

Some of the most popular DLC for Forza Horizon 3, and for racing games in general, are the new cars that can be added and then raced with, which not only extends the game’s lifespan but adds in some nostalgia when those cars are historic models. This time around, the latest new car pack for Forza Horizon 3 comes by way of the Logitech G Car Pack, which the Xbox Wire details in their latest release.

The Logitech G Car Pack features seven new vehicles with a focus on driving this holiday season. The new Car Pack comes just a week from the release of the Blizzard Mountain expansion for Forza Horizon 3, which will bring a real winter driving experience to the Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs.

The cars included in the Logitech G Car Pack offer a range of vehicles, from the experimental to the classic. The Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 Concept is a car that exists only as a prototype unveiled at the Geneva Auto Show in 2015, and offers a lighter, sportier version of the Bentley Continental GT. The 2017 Jaguar F-PACE is a brand new SUV in the mid- to compact crossover range and should make for a fun winter driving experience.

The 1965 Pontiac GTO is one of the pack’s most iconic vehicles, representing a quintessential American muscle car. Less iconic but much-loved and respected is the 2014 Morgan 3 Wheeler, with a design that goes back all the way to 1911 but that’s been modernized with today’s amenities and powerplant technology.

Rounding out the Logitech G Car Pack is the popular 1992 Toyota Supra 2.0 GT Twin Turbo, the 2017 Mercedes-AMG GT R with its twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8, and the 1996 HSV GTSR limited-edition street-legal racer.

The Logitech G Car Pack is available by itself from the Xbox Store for $7. It’s also available as part of the Forza Horizon 3 Car Pass that’s can be purchased by itself or with the Forza Horizon 3 Ultimate Edition.
