Forza 6 Announces Fallout 4-Inspired 1956 Ford F-100

Inspired by next week’s impending release of the fourth instalment of Bethesda Game Studio’s post-war-themed Fallout videogame franchise, Forza Motorsport developer Turn 10 Studios has decided to release something very special to players of Forza Motorsport 6: a Fallout-themed 1956 Ford F-100.

The Ford F-100 name was born in 1953 with the start of the second-generation Ford F-series pickup range. Engine options for the 1956 model year were limited to either a 279 or 317 cubic-inch Y-block V8 making around 150 to 170 horsepower, respectively. The Ford F-100 and circa 1950s vehicles like it are mainstays of the Fallout game universe, which draws heavily upon the prevailing style of the period to conjure a sense of the post-war nuclear scare.

The Fallout-themed 1956 Ford F-100 is available to Forza Motorsport 6 players everywhere as of yesterday, free-of-charge. “Everyone asks us if you can drive the cars in Fallout 4,” said Bethesda Game Director Todd Howard, “and now we can say yes – in Forza, our favorite racing game.”

Aaron Brzozowski is a writer and motoring enthusiast from Detroit with an affinity for '80s German steel. He is not active on the Twitter these days, but you may send him a courier pigeon.
