The announcements continue for Forza Motorsport as Turn 10 reveals the first set of cars joining the game, including eight brand-new models.
Just yesterday, we mentioned that Turn 10 announced the introduction of two new tracks to its upcoming game, Forza Motorsport. The infamous Road America circuit was confirmed during the IMSA Sportscar Championship round at the venue. The unveiling of a new fictional oval, Eagle Rock Speedway, followed that alongside a new car.
Well, this stream of announcements is seemingly not stopping any time soon as the Forza Motorsport Twitter page received a list of cars confirmed for the title last night. A total of 24 models are among the list, with eight all-new cars for the Forza Motorsport series.
Brand New Forza Cars
That’s right, the list features eight models that have never hit the Forza Motorsport track. They include the 2023 Nissan Z as well as its predecessor, the 2019 Nissan 370Z Nismo. The previously announced 2020 Audi RS3 Sedan joins the title alongside the 2020 Lexus RCF Track Edition and Toyota Supra.
The 2019 BMW Z4 joins the title and is sure to drive just like the aforementioned Supra given the two cars’ links. The 2018 Audi TTRS will add a touch of aggression to the game whilst Alpine brings its 2017 A110.
Whilst all these cars are new to the Motorsport franchise, they are not new to Forza. Those with a keen eye will notice they are all cars that feature in Forza Horizon 5. Seemingly, the new title will very much be a compilation of vehicles from previous titles bearing the Forza name. However, that is no surprise. Fans will recognise the routine of porting over of previous models.
Many more Models in-game
Overall, Forza Motorsport will reportedly include over 500 cars at launch. Indeed, this has often been a figure boasted by the Turn 10 developers. This half a thousand vehicles will pair well with the 20 locations available to race on in the upcoming title.
In addition to the eight new-to-the-series cars, the aforementioned Tweet announced a further 16. The list includes priceless historics like the Mercedes 300SL Coupe, Porsche 550 Spyder and 356A, the Jaguar MkII, Ferrari 250 GT Lusso and Aston Martin DB5.
Classic sports cars from the adorable MG A and Austin Healey 3000 to the Toyota 2000GT and Honda 800 joins other Japanese models in the shape of the Mazda Cosmo and Datsun 2000. More recent vehicles like the mean Mercedes SLK 55 AMG and Jaguar F-Type R also feature. The Lexus RCF joins its track-prepped sibling in Forza Motorsport whilst the Lotus Evora returns to the series once more.
All in all, this meagre 24-car list is just a fraction of the number of models set to feature in the game at launch. One can find the full Forza Motorsport car list as we know it so far here. In typical Forza tradition, many more vehicles are sure to join the title post-launch in the form of free additions of DLC car packs.
