Microsoft and Turn 10 announced the Forza Motorsport 5 "Car Pass" last week, a bundle that lets you grab six monthly car packs at a discount. They delved into a little more detail today, sharing info on the first pack and just how big that discount will be for dedicated car enthusiasts.

The first downloadable content will be the LaFerrari Car Pack, available on launch day. It's named after its headliner car, a limited run Ferrari model with a 950-horsepower hybrid engine. Only 499 of them will be available to drive in real life, so it'll be easier (and much, much cheaper) to drive one in the game. Turn 10 also boasts that this means you'll be able to try the car before it's available to anyone on the market, so take that absurdly rich people! The pack will also include nine other cars, to be detailed closer to launch.

The Car Pass itself, which gets you access to the LaFerrari Pack along with five others, will cost $49.99. This is similar to the price for Forza Horizon, and said to be an 18% savings over buying them individually. Of course, if you are a devotee of particular makes and models, you can just buy the packs a la carte.

      This has such an absurdly low value that it makes me think that they must be testing how much Xbone buyers are willing to spend for silly add-ons... like the kinnect.

        This is for 60 cars in the monthly DLC packs, AND the Ferrari F70 (I am NOT calling that beautiful car by its abomination of an official name.)

          I'd like to know how that name made it all the way up to press. Ferrari is essentially saying that they have reached their peak, that no other car they make will be as good.

      Kinda bummed that such a headline car would be held to DLC.

      Also, since when did Microsoft and Turn 10 get the idea to charge $10 per car pack? I mean, each car pack, historically, has 5-6 cars. Guess I'll buy a la carte to avoid getting Ford Transits and the Econolines.

        I buy a la carte to get only the Transits and Econolines!
