Forza 4 is launching on October 11, and inevitably, there's both a limited Collector's Edition on offer as well as a significant pre-order bonus for those who stake their claim to a copy early.

The Limited Collector's Edition includes the "VIP Car Pack," which includes the 2011 models of the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, Ferrari 458 Challenge, Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera and Noble M600, RUF Rt 12 R. It also comes with a 10-car add-on pack of American muscle cars which will be available via the Xbox Live Marketplace at launch.

The special edition also includes five custom-designed BMWs, one of which will have been designed by the community -- if you rate your car-painting skills you can enter here -- and the rest of which will have been painted by BMW, Turn 10 and "other talented artists" in homage to the BMW Art Car Challenge.

The Collector's Edition will also include the brand new 2012 BMW M5, recently revealed at the 24 Hours of N├╝rburgring race in Germany.

That's not all, though -- Collector's Edition purchasers get VIP Membership status in the Forza community, which entitles them to "special recognition" in community features both in-game and on

As well as all these in-game and community goodies, the pack also includes a 96-page book written by the editors at Top Gear magazine, including a variety of photos sure to satisfy any who like ogling fast cars that they'll never, ever afford in real life. Oh, and some stickers.

Those who order early can also get their hands on the "Launch Bonus" car pack, which includes the 1965 Ford Mustang GT Coupe, the 2011 Koenigsegg Agera, the 1997 Lexus SC300, the 2011 RUF RGT-8 and the 2011 Tesla Roadster Sport.

Various retailers will also be offering specific pre-order bonus car packs, too, so be sure to check with them if there's a virtual speed machine you've got your eye on. Check the pre-order deals here.
