Three hits of news on the Forza 4 front today. First, Turn 10 Studios has revealed the official shot of the game box art. Second, they've announced that the "Hero car" for the game is the Ferrari 458 Italia. Third, they've announced the five pre-order cars — along with "showroom" shots of each. I can't tell you more about this "showroom" function — or even if it'll be called that in the game — but I can say these are absolutely in-game renderings.
One of the five cars could be yours depending on where you decide to pre-order the game from.
So walk through our little showroom gallery above to see the cars and find out where you need to go to buy them. Here's a hint — Best Buy. Because you know you want a BMW 1 M. Just sayin'...
