Fourteen Forza Favorites Revealed For Forza Horizon 2
Today on Xbox Wire, Playground Games revealed the sixth group of vehicles coming to Forza Horizon 2, showcasing 14 cars that have achieved legendary status among Forza players.
This week’s selection of cars represents some of the most beloved and frequently used supercars and classics in Forza’s history. BMW has two cars on the list; the deceptively quick 1973 BMW 2002 Turbo and the almost obscenely beautiful 1981 BMW M1, which launched the German car maker’s ‘M’ class of cars. Any discussion of world-class dream cars has to involve the big two Italian manufacturers; Ferrari and Lamborghini, and both are represented here. Ferrari brings its V12 1995 Ferrari F50 and the sleek and sporty 2009 Ferrari 458 Italia, while Lamborghini offers the 1967 Lamborghini Miura P400, the precursor to the iconic Countach.
For a slightly less exotic ride that still packs plenty of power, Nissan presents their 2012 Nissan GT-R Black Edition, one of the best-handling supercars in the world, and the mid-range 1994 Nissan 240SX SE, a drift-racer’s dream. If power and performance isn’t your thing, (first off; why are you playing a racing game?) Forza Horizon 2 will include the 1963 Volkswagen Beetle, the iconic 2-door, 40hp people mover designed by Ferdinand Porsche that went on to become the best-selling automotive model in history.
Other cars on the list include the 1968 Oldsmobile Hurst/Olds 442, 2012 Caterham Superlight R500, 2009 Honda S2000 CR, 1985 Toyota Sprinter Trueno GT Apex and the 1985 Ford RS200 Evolution. This week’s 14 cars brings the list to 173, meaning Playground Games and Microsoft still have at least 27 more cars to show off. We’ll be covering each new release as the game approaches its September 30 release date for Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
