Motorsport history was made in 1990 when racing legend Alain Prost battled McLaren's Ayrton Senna. There was no love lost between the two as the season shook out with Senna taking pole and winning many races, with Prost beside him on the grid or close behind in second. Prost's 641 took Ferrari engineering to the next level with electronically-controlled paddle-shifting and the glorious roar of its 680-hp V12 driving the John Barnard-designed chassis. Prost would refer to the 641 as "The best car on the grid." It was this car that Senna punted off track at Suzuka when he was upset about pole position being on the dirty side of the track; the move would give Senna the driver's championship that year. Prost's famous response to the incident? "Motor racing is sport, not war." While McLaren would also earn the constructor’s championship in 1990 (by a mere 11 points), the battle between Ferrari and McLaren (and their two fiery drivers) would go down in motorsport history as one of the greatest rivalries of all time.
— Official description [1]

The 1990 Ferrari #1 Scuderia Ferrari 641 - abbreviated as #1 Ferrari 641 - is a Formula One car by Ferrari featured in Forza Motorsport 6 as part of the Hot Wheels Car Pack, and as standard in Forza Motorsport 7.

Synopsis

The 641, used in the 1990 Formula One season, was a developed version of its predecessor, the 1989 Ferrari 640. The updated 641's design was overseen by former McLaren designer Steve Nichols after John Barnard left Ferrari to join the Benetton team. The 641 scored six wins in the 1990 season, with Alain Prost taking five and Nigel Mansell taking one.

In 1991, the 641 was succeeded by the 642.

Drivetrain

The 641 was powered by a 3.5L (3,498 cc) Tipo 036 V12 producing 680 hp (507 kW) and 320 ft·lb (434 N·m). Using a semi-automatic gearbox from the previous season, the 641 was seen to be technologically advanced in the 1990 Formula One season.

Platform

The aerodynamics were reworked and the chassis given a slightly longer wheelbase than its predecessor. With a 1109 lb (503 kg) weight, the 641 makes 1352 hp (1008 kW) per tonne, yielding acceleration to 100 mph (161 km/h) in less than 4 seconds.

Performance

The Ferrari 641 is one of the best-performing cars in the Forza series, capable of traits like very quick acceleration, including 0-100 mph (161 km/h) in 3.9 seconds, which cannot be accomplished by any other car in the series except the Hoonigan Ford "Hoonicorn" Mustang and Renault R.S.17. The 641 also has a high top speed of 215 mph (346 km/h), making it suitable for most tracks.

The 641 is also the sharpest-turning car in the series, capable of reaching 3.36 Gs in lateral acceleration at a speed of 120 mph (193 km/h). In terms of braking, the 641 also has the most efficient brakes in the series, capable of slowing down to a stop very quickly, allowing it to slow down to cornering-appropriate speeds virtually without any effort.
