Forza Motorsport: Cars that we NEED in the next FM
Turn 10’s racing sim will soon be getting another instalment, but which cars do we need to see?
The essence of any great racing games is the range and quality of the cars that are available to drive.
It’s all well and good having a great physics model but if the motors that it’s being used on aren’t interesting enough, you won’t thrill many gamers.
Forza has had a massive collection of cars to choose from for years now, but improvements can always be made, especially with the Xbox Series X on the horizon. Here are five cars we want to see in Forza Motorsport!
Lamborghini Aventador SVJ LP770-4
Lamborghini’s have always been cars that were designed to be slapped onto a poster and placed into a child’s bedroom, they just look cool.
Forza Motorsport 7 had both the Aventador LP 700-4 and the 750-4 SV, but there’s been an even more powerful model produced since.
The SVJ LP770-4 is an absolute monster, producing 760 bhp, 20 more than the already ridiculous 750-4 SV. The LP770-4 also looks extremely aggressive, there have been no half measures taken by Lambo here.
Your rivals will be scared off the road by this beast if they can even keep up.
With only 800 of this model being produced worldwide, it’s an extremely rare car and one that will be a pleasure to drive.
Toyota GR Supra
We have no idea how the Toyota Supra wasn’t included in Forza 7. The Supra is, without doubt, one of the most iconic cars of the 90s and early 2000s.
Its prominence in the Fast & Furious film series and its popularity in games such as Need for Speed: Underground has cemented its place in pop culture.
We’d love to see a fourth-generation model in the next Forza. However, seeing as the Supra has returned to the production line, now is the ideal time to include the new GR Supra.
Weighing in at only 1,500 kg and producing up to 380 bhp means that the GR Supra will be the fastest ever of its kind and we can’t wait to drive it!
Chevrolet Corvette C8
There were a LOT of Chevrolet’s featured in FM7, 60 in total, but that tally needs to increase by at least one for Forza Motorsport.
The Chevrolet Corvette C8 has come into production this year and is a real competitor to the high-performance sports cars from Europe and Japan.
A 6.2 Litre V8 motor produces almost 500 bhp but it’s the corners where this car really shines.
At just over 1,500 kg in weight, it’ll fly around the bends. It’s also a beautiful car as well, it looks stunning when ascending mountain passes and zooming through forests.
If you thought that the Aventador we featured earlier in this list was insane, the Koenigsegg Jesko will blow your mind.
The small Swedish manufacturers have been churning out some of the highest-performance hypercars in the world since the mid-1990s.
The Jesko is the latest in a long line of road cars that defy physics and push the boundaries of modern engineering to their limits.
Production on the Jesko is expected to commence later this year and when it does, one of the fastest road cars ever will hit the streets.
A twin-turbocharged V8 will produce over 1,600 bph, over double that of the SVJ LP770-4! Weighing in at only 1,420 kg as well will mean that the Jesko can achieve a top speed of 278 mph (447 kph).
Believe it or not, but there is actually an even faster Jesko planned for production in the future, the Jesko Absolut.
Not much is know about the Absolut except that it will allegedly be able to achieve a top speed of over 300 mph (483 kph).
Toyota is back with a bang in Forza so it’s only right we include more of the famous Japanese manufacturer’s cars. The Toyota GT-One was developed for Le Mans in the late 1990s, winning in its class at the 1999 race.
This is a beautiful racer and one that was built at the peak of Le Mans’ bonkers design period.
The GT-One has been in Forza in the past, most recently in Motorsport 5, but hasn’t been seen since. Whatsmore is that the road version of this car has never been included in Forza, so it’d be great to see that machine given its debut.
The GT-One is a Gran Turismo fan-favourite though, so it’d be difficult for Turn 10 to get the licensing. However, if Toyota is feeling generous, then we could see this amazing car in Forza Motorsport later this year!
