‘No Mr Bond, I expect you to drive’ – Forza Horizon 4 lets you race James Bond’s cars

James Bond’s most famous cars will be available to drive in Forza Horizon 4 as part of a new add-on pack announced by Xbox.

The Best of Bond Car Pack will feature 10 vehicles from across 50 years of the popular films, including Goldfinger, The Man With the Golden Gun, Casino Royale and Spectre.

Gamers will be able to take the wheel of a range of classic Aston Martin models, including the DB5 made famous by Sean Connery, as well as more modern classics such as the BMW Z8 from The World Is Not Enough.

“The James Bond series of films are iconic for numerous reasons: fantastic locations, thrilling action and an ever-evolving line-up of fascinating gadgets,” a Forza spokesman said. “Forza fans appreciate 007 for yet another reason: his awesome line-up of amazing automobiles. We’re thrilled to announce the Best of Bond Car Pack as the Day One Car Pack for Forza Horizon 4.”

Forza Horizon 4 is the latest title in the popular open-world car racing franchise, and the first to be set in the UK. The Best of Bond Car Pack adds to the more than 450 vehicles from history and the present day that are already featured in the game, and includes:
