Forza Horizon 2 reveals more cars in week 5 car reveal
I admit that I’m biased – I do love a good car racing game, especially if the cars featured are a mix of classic and high performance vehicles. Forza Horizon 2, therefore, has a special place in my cannot wait to be released heart, and the recently announced cars detailed as part of the game’s weekly new car announcement are making me wish the September release date was closer.
As seen on Xbox Wire, 159 of the more than 200 cars have already been revealed to feature in the open world playground of Southern Europse in Forza Horizon 2. This week, five new cars have been announced: the 1973 Ford Capri RS3100, the 1962 Ferrari 250GT Berlinetta Lusso, the 2011 Aston Martin V12 Zagato (Villa d’Este), the 2012 Bowler EXR S 011 and the 1993 McLaren F1. For car enthusiasts – exciting news! For everyone else – another language!
A more in-depth look at the cars can be found below:
- 1973 Ford Capri RS3100: The Capri is one of the most European-looking cars Ford ever produced. Its long sloping nose and fastback coupe rear resembled the Mustang but also fit the form of popular Japanese coupes of the era. With its spry 3.1-litre motor in this homologation model, the RS3100 will get the jump on similarly-classed cars.
- 1962 Ferrari 250GT Berlinetta Lusso: The 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso is the kind of car that cameras dream of. The Lusso is quick and nimble, yet built with enough refinement to please even the most upscale of customers. There’s the three-piece bumper that frames the egg-crate grill nad cradles the turn signals; the profile that seamlessly integrates the front fenders through the doors before falling into a gracious curve into the Kamm tail panel. And let’s not forget the three-Webber carburted V-12.
- 2011 Aston Martin V12 Zagato (Villa d’Este): The V12 Zagato debuted at the prestigious Concorso d’Eleganza Villa D’Este in Italy and won the “best in class” award for concept and prototypes. The V12 produces 510 bhp, the brakes are ventilated carbon ceramic and it uses a carbon fiber drivesharft. With a top speed north of 185 mph and equipped with a full roll cage and a plastic driver’s side window, this car is ready for action.
- 2012 Bowler EXR S 011: This striking all-terrain vehicle is fitted with a modified version of the Range Rover Sport’s supercharged 5.0-litre V8, and produces 550 bhp, giving it a top speed of more than 150mph.
- 1993 McLaren F1: The brainchild of Gordon Murray, the McLaren F1 defied conventional thinking by pioneering such technologies as a full carbon fiber monocoque chassis weighing just 22 lbs. Backed up by a highly modified BMW V-12 making 627 horsepower, the F1 is as fast as it was expensive – nearly a million dollars when new.
In addition to the abovementioned cars, the following cars were also announced:
- 2010 Audi TT RS Coupe
- 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air
- 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392
- 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO
- 1992 Ford Escort RS Cosworth
- 2004 Honda Civic Type-R
- 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo
- 2013 KTM X-Bow R
- 1992 Nissan Silvia CLUB K’s
