The August Forza Motorsport 7 update will introduce the 1989 Aston Martin AMR1, the all-new time attack mode, upgrades to drift more and more.

The major update for Turn 10’s latest Forza Motorsport installment will be released for both Xbox One and Windows 10 PC tomorrow, and is said to be one the biggest updates to in Forza Motorsport history.

One of the new additions will be the 1989 Aston Marin AMR1. “Only five chassis were built; the one modeled here (AMR1/04) was the most successful, achieving a fourth place at Brands Hatch and an eighth place at the Nürburgring with Brian Redman and David Leslie behind the wheel”, Forza community manager Brian Ekberg wrote on the game’s official blog.

Other changes include the introduction of a time-attack mode, which will come with its own leaderboard for every track ribbon in the game, across every car class, every weather option and time of day.

The update will also offer drift mode upgrades, including a new drift suspension upgrade option to the Upgrade Shop.

Redrawn track limits are a part of the August update as well. “The team at Turn 10 have redefined track limits for all track ribbons in the game”, Turn 10 writes. “That means hand-drawing all of those limits – from the smallest circuits like Rio Mini Circuit, to the largest tracks in the game like the Nürburgring Full Circuit. In fact, in the case of the ‘Ring, that means hand-placing more than 13,000 pins to create the splines that define both the inner and outer track limits on that famously gargantuan course.”

We’ll update as soon as the new Forza Motorsport 7 update releases.

Forza Motorsport 7 is available now globally for Xbox One and Windows 10 PC.
