Maybe.

Assassin's Creed comes out right at around the same time, so we will see.

-=Official Forza Horizon Thread=-

because the original thread is too old(will fall too fast) and too crummy to post in and find









Exclusive Limited Collectors Edition

Forza's trademark authenticity hits the open road - and the festival circuit - in Forza Horizon, with open world gameplay and a host of new challenges

Forza's authentic gameplay hits the open road - and the festival circuit - in Forza Horizon.

The hugely successful Forza Motorsport series takes a sharp left-turn away from the traditional tracks of previous entries, and embarks on an exciting road trip, offering open-world gameplay amongst the Rocky Mountains of Colorado - and entry to the Horizon Festival, offering new ways to enjoy the authentic Forza driving experience!

Forza Horizon Limited Collector's Edition Features

Get even more out of the open road with the Forza Horizon Limited Collector's Edition, packed with more cars, VIP Membership and instant access to new features as they arrive!

The Limited Collector's Edition comes packed in custom designed Steelbook, containing the game and your Horizon Festival Ticket to access Xbox LIVE content which includes:

Launch Day Car Pack (5-car pack*)
VIP Membership (5-car pack* and VIP privileges)
Horizon Accelerator Token Pack - Giving player instant access to new cars, map unlocks, fast travel, and popularity spikes.
Exclusive LCE Car Liveries (5-car pack*)





WHAT EXACTLY IS FORZA HORIZON?
The keys to the multi-million pound racing series have passed to Playground Studios who have built an open world racer. Here, you can take the world's best motors and belt them around Colorado, home to some of the world's greatest ever driving roads. But it's not just roads: there are dirt paths, farm tracks and mountain ranges, too.



ISN'T IT LIKE EVERY OTHER FORZA GAME?
This is a very different racing game altogether. Apart from the ace open world aspect, Horizon moves away from the track. Instead, we get street racing, wheel-to-wheel combat and points awarded for stylish driving, such as drifting or near misses. And you can also race at night or off-road for the first time.



SO, IT'S NOT A FORZA GAME THEN?
It's definitely filled with Forza DNA. They've taken the franchise's attention to detail and passion for cars and mixed it with the feeling of a motorsport festival. Incidentally, super DJ Rob da Bank has curated the very awesome soundtrack, which features 66 tracks, to add to that total festival feeling.



HANG ON, IT'S A FESTIVAL?
Yes, it all takes place around a festival, which stands as your hub where you can customise your vehicle and make upgrades. Think Bestival mixed with Top Gear Live. Everywhere you go there's a banging soundtrack as the game takes you all around Colorado for series of challenges and cool motor events.



WHAT KIND OF EVENTS?
You play the new kid who is trying to make a name for himself at the Horizon Festival by taking on different challenges. They range from simple races (just drive like your stole it), style challenges (showing off your driving skills) and showcase events (where we raced a plane and hot air balloon - yes, really).



WHAT WILL KEEP ME PLAYING IT?
There are simply hundreds of events, and they seriously pull you in. Unlike the original series, Forza Horizon has that addictive "just one more game" thing you normally only get from the likes FIFA or Call of Duty. Post-launch they'll be releasing DLC car packs every month, along with an extension pack on December 18.



YOU HAVEN'T MENTIONED ONLINE!
Don't worry! Forza has one of the largest online communities in gaming and so Forza Horizon follows suits. All events can be played online against your mates in Rivals Mode, and there is Playground Mode for less serious games like cat and mouse. There's also a Free Roam Mode to make your own fun.

My Ride: 2003 Technik S1 M3






1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS Coupe -- This muscle car can hold its own against juiced up four-cylinder imports. If one ever saw defeat at the hands of a another car, the owner still need only lean against the fender and receive the compliments of all who heard its V8 thunder.






1996 Ferrari F50 GT -- The F50 GT is an incredible track car, with blistering speed and incredible cornering ability, considering that it is based on a road-going vehicle. It's also rare -- just three were made -- so you certainly won't want to miss it in Forza Horizon.





2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 -- Detroit muscle has returned bringing serious muscle and surprising cornering along for the ride. The Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 comes in a wrapper that is reminiscent of the original Hemi-powered Mopar. It's like a trip back in time without having to leave all the advantages of modern technology behind.






1956 Jaguar D-Type -- When you encounter something as rare and beautiful as a Jaguar D-Type you have to take it all in. Its purposeful front intake and its fluid lines are as functional as they are eye-catching. The Jaguar D-Type represents the height of 1950s technology and is capable of a hair-raising top speed of 170 mph (without seat belts mind you). Overall the D-Type is impressive piece of automotive history.






2004 Honda Civic Type-R -- The "CTR", as it is commonly referred to, clocked huge sales numbers and was hailed as the "hot hatch of the year" more than once. That probably won't be a surprise, considering the car's endlessly reliable K20A Type R powertrain. The result is a car that's pure fun from stem to stern.






2010 Audi TT RS Coupe -- Getting back to its tradition of five-cylinder engines, the TT RS sports a direct-injected turbocharged power plant with the odd number of cylinders heralded originally by the 5000 series. The TT RS distinguishes itself from its TT siblings with larger air vents, a fixed wing, and new rear diffuser.






1998 Subaru Impreza 22B STi -- If you want the crowds of Horizon Festival-goers to do a double take, show up in this rare wide-body coupe. Celebrating Subaru's 40th anniversary and its third manufacturer's title in the WRC, Subaru created the only two-door STi. The turbocharged EJ22 boxer engine has an exhaust note as unique as the form of its limited production body.






2008 Maserati MC12 Versione Corsa -- Among the Italian supercar elite, the Masi MC12 Corsa is a race-bred descendant with the blood of a Ferrari and the bones of its sibling supercar icon Maserati. Brute force and articulate styling give the MC12 an air of exclusivity that is hard met by any competition.






2013 BMW M6 Coupe -- This soon to be classic M-division monster, sporting its new twin-turbo V8 will satisfy any enthusiast with its M-inspired power and handling. This full size coupe is as nimble and quick as you would expect from a BMW M-Class. Yes, it's a car for the elite given its price tag but, in Horizon, it can be virtually yours.






2011 Aston Martin V12 Zagato (Villa d'Este) -- Commemorating the 50th anniversary of the original DB4GT Zagato, Aston Martin--in collaboration with Zagato--created an elegant and vivacious concept car. This is a car that has won best-in-class awards and performed flawlessly on the track. The V12 produces 510 bhp, the brakes are ventilated carbon ceramic and it uses a carbon fiber driveshaft. A wonderful melding of technology and passion.






2006 Audi RS4 -- Aggressively flared fenders, extra air intakes, and of course a more powerful engine tune separate the Audi RS4 from the already high-performing S4 upon which it is based. Thanks to those upgrades, you've got a car that's eager to eat up the miles and it'll be happy to demonstrate its cornering prowess and substantial acceleration on any track you can throw at it.






1967 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 427 -- Arguably the most desirable of any Corvette ever produced, the 1967 Stingray 427 had five years of refinements behind it. Under the hood the L88 (if ordered) was as close to a pure-race engine as Chevy had ever offered. Some would say the 427's design is as underrated as its horsepower, we say this is an all-time classic.






1992 Volkswagen Golf Gti 16v Mk2 -- The Golf Gti 16v Mk2 is a staple in the realm of tuners and street racing. It's light, agile, and is made for upgrades. The Mk2 picks up where the original Gti left off and takes it to the next level. In the world of water-cooled VW's, driving a Mk2 Gti will get respect whether it's a work in progress or best in show.






2009 Ferrari California -- When Ferrari decided to create a new drop-top grand touring car, they revived the California moniker from fast convertibles of years past and introduced a Ferrari first: a retractable hardtop that allows for high-speed cruising, rain or shine. Of course, since it's still a Ferrari you can zip from apex to apex while exploring the 8,000 RPM rev limit, all the while knowing that the carbon ceramic brakes can haul the California down from speed in an instant.






2011 BMW 1 Series M Coupe -- It might be an entry-level Bimmer, but the 1 Series M Coupe has the same swagger of all the ultimate driving machines and hangs tough when compared to its much more expensive sibling, the M3. The 1 Series M Coupe, in fact, borrows heavily from the M3, but only where it needs to. The rest it does all on its own.






2010 Abarth 500 esseesse -- Small enough to race around inside of a Hollywood mansion and cool enough for the likes of Charlie Sheen, the Abarth 595 esseesse (SS) flaunts it Italian style despite its diminutive proportions. In an era where ultra-compacts and city cars have finally found a home in the U.S., the Abarth does it while still making a statement that speaks to more than economy.






1997 Mazda RX-7 -- The last of the RX-7's was also arguably the best. The twin-turbo Wankel motor makes the 1997 RX-7 a virtual rocket ship, delivering silky smooth power to a lightweight and near perfectly balanced chassis. Isn't that the best of both worlds?






1998 Toyota Supra RZ -- The RZ was effectively the king of Japanese sports cars during its day. The legendary 2JZ engine has found its place in movies, circuit, and drift racing. This was the last year of the Supra for the U.S. market; rumors of its return have yet to be fulfilled. It is a car whose beauty, history and performance all deserve a place at the Horizon Festival.






1964 Chevrolet Impala SS 409 -- Whether you are looking for the classic hood ride, or iconic muscle worthy of The Beach Boys song based on this car, the 409 delivers. The "six-fo" SS 409 started a movement that bred cars like the GTO and Boss 302. It begs for customization but also stands proud in its stock form. "None shall pass" once that second four-barrel kicks in, so long as you are headed in a straight line.






1987 Ferrari F40 -- For the 40th anniversary of the founding of his company, Enzo Ferrari instructed his scuderia to build the ultimate Ferrari. The result was the F40, a car in which the descriptor "fast" is hardly sufficient. Capable of 0-60 in under four seconds, and 100 mph in just over eight, the F40 is a standout, even by Ferrari's already astronomical standards.






1991 BMW M3 -- The original M3 harkens back to what it means to be a race car on the street. Take an M3 for a spin and you will find yourself downshifting just to hear the engine rev. And rev it will, the motor loves to roar, and it builds clean usable power throughout the entire range. This is German automotive engineering at its finest, setting the bar high for later generations of the M3.






2002 Nissan Skyline GTR V-spec -- This iconic example of Japanese muscle is ready to hit the road and impress everyone lucky enough to catch a glimpse. It's fast enough to earn the respect of anyone who loves cars and sexy enough to turn the heads of those who don't even understand its rarity in the U.S.






1969 Pontiac GTO Judge -- As flamboyant as its paint job is, the Judge was the muscle car to beat in its day. Owning one was like instantly becoming a drag racer, since every stoplight became an opportunity to prove its dominance. These were the days when factory performance really meant something and the Judge was the standard by which many cars were measured.






2005 Honda NSX-R GT -- Some will challenge the title of "supercar" when referring to the NSX, but there is no question that its form and function equal many great supercars. This low-slung wide body has grip for days and its mid-engine design gives it superior balance. In short, the Honda NSX-R GT does it all, and does it all well.






2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 -- When Chevy CEO Rick Wagoner wondered aloud what a $100,000 Corvette would look like, that was all the incentive his design team needed. They launched a skunkworks project and the result was the first Corvette to live up to the claim of taking on any Porsche. Supercharged LS9, nuff said.






1954 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing Coupe -- One of the most majestic works of four-wheeled art ever produced, the Gullwing was the only car of its kind and is still regarded as one of the most beautiful cars in the world. The concept was born to accommodate the wide berth of the side framing but gives the car a presence that is unmatched.






2012 Hennessy Venom -- Known in some circles as the Bugatti destroyer, the Hennessey Venom GT is capable of acceleration that is barely accommodated by the human body. Its looks may be reminiscent of its Lotus Elise base, but that's where the similarities end. This super-lightened, mega-horsepowered exotic monster needs to be reeled in slowly or it will bite your backside faster than you can say "See ya."






1995 Volkswagen Corrado VR6 -- Compact and sturdy form wraps the now legendary VR6 engine in the VW Corrado. This kind of power in a car this size will astound you with its capabilities. The Corrado is comfortable on any surface and is a perfect starting point for the adventure that is Forza Horizon.






2009 Lamborghini Reventón Roadster -- Directly inspired by the F-22A Raptor, an advanced stealth fighter, the Reventón is as sharp as they come. Take the top off and this roadster lets the sun shine in where only the most elite will sit. To own you one you not only need a pile of money, but you must also have earned your spot on the list of less than twenty to be manufactured. The Reventón's extreme rarity make it a collector's item in the real world; its incredible performance will make it a must-own for fans in Forza Horizon.






2012 Eagle Speedster -- The bumper-to-bumper beauty that is the Eagle Speedster will have you gasping for breath and reaching for your (virtual) wallet in Forza Horizon. If the chopped windscreen, classic Jaguar E-type lines, and low-slung ****pit doesn't fire your synapses into a frenzy then you have probably flat-lined. The Eagle Speedster is a vintage ride with all the technology of today.






2012 Infiniti IPL G Coupe -- A two-door coupe from Infiniti and, yes, it's rear-wheel drive. The folks at Infiniti know who their competition is and have delivered a luxury performance car worthy of their prestigious name. So whether you want a car to impress or want to hang on for an exciting ride the IPL G Coupe has the cards for a winning hand.






2008 BMW M3 -- Leaving behind the straight six of previous versions, the 2008 M3 used a 4-liter V8 to manufacturer its awe-inspiring power. While the M3 is fast at low RPMs by any objective standard, this car is at its best near redline, so keep your revs up and you'll be rewarded with great performance and the sounds of a happy motor.






1987 Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500 -- You really can't have too many spoilers. The Sierra RS500 Cosworth has two, and they're hard to miss. That's OK though, because this Cossie has enough get-up to need them. A limited production, beefed-up homologation variant of the already formidable Sierra RS Cosworth, the RS500 is extremely exclusive. It is also, without a doubt, otherworldly fast and very sticky in the turns.






1971 Nissan Skyline 2000GT-R -- The legacy of the Nissan Skyline started here with this humble-looking Hako. Its motor could rev to an amazing 10,000 RPM, giving it plenty of muscle. As the progenitor of Nissan's famed Skyline model line this is, in essence, where JDM street cred began.






Lamborghini Countach LP500 QV -- You don't need to be Don Johnson to appreciate the utterly radical nature of the Countach. There's nothing quite like arriving in a car that gave way to the term "Lambo doors." And there is certainly not much like driving a car that looks and sounds like a jet fighter.






2012 BMW M5 -- The M5 has always delivered furious performance in a comfortable and stylish package, but thanks to hard work and technological improvements the 2012 M5 marries increased fuel economy to expected M-division performance. In short, this M5 is better in every way. Engineering is truly a wonderful thing.






2010 Pagani Zonda R -- If it had wings it would fly. Well, in truth, the Pagani Zonda R DOES have one big wing and it does fly... on the roads. If you're looking for subtlety, look elsewhere because the Zonda R is about as extravagant as cars get. Bring a whip for this whip though, because taming its power isn't for the faint of heart.






2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X GSR -- When Mitsubishi designed an all-new Lancer, the basis of the Evolution X, they built a healthy dose of pure aggression into the bodywork. This suits the Evo just fine, as its been beefed up in the performance department too. In short, the Evo X can tackle any corner you can throw at it and leave you begging for more.






2003 Honda S2000 -- While the S2000 is easy on the eyes, its real glory is under the hood with a motor that seems to rev endlessly and a top end like a rocket afterburner. This versatile JDM roadster has the gusto to rock the competition and the style and elegance to impress even the hardest of hearts.






2010 Nissan 370 Z -- If you are looking for a car that can do it all then the Nissan 370 Z should be on your short list. Out of the box it is a sticky and swift racer and a capable drifter. As with all the Z cars, it packs a bundle of muscle under its long hood. Match it with cars five times its cost and you will be amazed at how it stacks up.

My Ride: 2003 Technik S1 M3
1987 RUF CTR Yellowbird -- Dubbed the "Yellowbird" by a group of journalists during a two-day test drive event, the 1987 RUF CTR Yellowbird also earns its name thanks to the canary-like chirping of this twin-turbo's blow off valve. Just 29 of these cherished classics were built - but you'll be able to take it out any time in Forza Horizon.






2011 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor -- Say hello to your rear view mirror's worst nightmare. The Raptor is essentially a factory built pre-runner race truck with suspension to match its under-the-hood muscle. Slide it, jump it, whatever you like, it just begs for more. This monster is ready for battle.






2011 Lotus Evora S -- This is a confidence-inspiring semi-exotic with telepathic-like handling characteristics upgraded with a supercharger to boost it right into the upper echelons of track ability. Near perfect weight balance, ultra-light, and now lightning-quick.






2013 Ford Shelby GT500 -- The phrase "mine's bigger than yours" now carries more weight in the "bow ties versus blue ovals" battle. Following the Shelby tradition of creating some of the most desirable American muscle, the GT500 has incredible power, a sound better than music, and lines that scream "get outta' my way!" Eleanor is back!






1969 Nissan Fairlady Z 432 -- This rarest of Z cars will drop the jaw of any true classic JDM enthusiast. This isn't any old Z car, this is the Fairlady Z 432. Aside from the subtle badging, the signature stacked dual exhaust tips signify that inside is the big Skyline GT-R motor. So when you look down the long sloping hood of this sweetheart, you know you have got a very special factory hot rod.






2009 Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG -- When you are talking about SUVs, there is usually a notion of utility being a key component in the discussion. When you are talking about the ML 63 AMG, utility is a foregone conclusion and the focus is on performance, luxury, and appearance. Start with Mercedes and add AMG. The result is on- or off-road perfection.






2005 Ford GT -- Designed for Ford's 100-year anniversary, the 2005 Ford GT was developed in just 16 months by SVT Engineering with input from Carroll Shelby, pioneering new construction techniques in the process while at the same time distilling all of the gorgeous styling DNA of the original into a contemporary design masterpiece.






1999 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI GSR -- The seventh generation Lancer Evolution in as many years, the VI GSR is a machine that benefits from the development that Mitsubishi has been pouring into it - development that comes not only from the street, but directly from the rally stage.






1965 Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe -- Nothing has ever even tried to match the form or raw power of the Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe. It is something that was done once and done right and is forever ensconced in our memory as a rare beauty and a road weapon of reckoning potential. Once the fire is lit, the rumble of the short-piped V8 will set your hairs on end before drenching them in sweat.






2010 Noble M600 -- The Noble M600 is a bespoke supercar that demands attention. Not just attention from drivers who appreciate analog pureness - Nobles are blissfully devoid of such driver-isolating distractions such as ABS and traction control - but also from those who appreciate the car's ideal proportions.






2012 Mercedes-Benz S 65 AMG -- This full-size luxury rocketship has more horsepower than any AMG model, ever. Technology and craftsmanship meet in an exquisite platform that provides unmatched handling, power, and control in a lavish four-door sedan. Rolling on 20-inch rims from the factory, this Benz just oozes street cred, while still representing its upper-class heritage.






1964 Aston Martin DB5 -- If you think you are James Bond then the DB5 will serve you bloody well. Even though it does not come equipped with machine guns, smoke screens or an ejector seat, the DB5's form, function, and raw charisma makes it a true classic. Fire this iconic idol up and revel in the burble of the English inline six, before you let it fly. Just please return it in one piece.






2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series -- When the top-of-the-line Mercedes coupe is not enough, you get the AMG. Iif the AMG is not enough then you have the Black Series. All the AMG, plus the motor from the SLS AMG supercar, as well as handling and aerodynamics to make it pliable. It simply does not get any better than this.






2010 Ford Focus RS500 -- In its matte black "foil" paint the Focus RS500 stands out in a crowd and it should because only 500 were produced. Individually numbered and nearly impossible to acquire, the RS500 will get you the attention you seek. With looks like no other production vehicle, the RS500 will follow the rest of the Fords to don the rare "RS" moniker as a legend in its class.






1985 Ford RS200 Evolution - Unlocking the power of this Group B homologation model requires attention to throttle modulation and choosing the right line. Beyond that the RS200 Evolution will do the rest with its high tech all-wheel drive system and cagey, tenacious grip. Its marked race history and uncommon looks make a bold statement.





2012 Ultima GTR -- Nothing short of a street legal track car, the Ultima GTR is a sock-knocking kick in the rear to drive. Don't kid yourself when you suit up in this super kit car, it has potential that should only be unlocked by those willing to commit to its potential. You don't just hop in a car like this and expect results, you temper your response and slowly but surely unveil its capabilities as your skills unfold behind the wheel.






2000 Nissan Silvia spec-R -- Driving this JDM masterpiece can be a transformative experience - in the real world or in Forza Horizon. With enough power to conquer any road in Horizon's Colorado and the kind of sleek lines normally reserved for chorus line girls, the Silvia turns heads wherever it goes.






1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429 -- The Boss 429 is for big boys and doesn't need anyone's approval to knock you back in your seat. It's a rarity among Mustangs and is the most powerful Stang of the era. No matter what you are competing against the Boss 429 has the juice to lay rubber all the way to the finish line.

2009 Lotus 2-Eleven -- An extreme car by any standard, the Lotus 2-Eleven is not even street legal in the United States. In in the world of Forza Horizon, however, you can rail this ultimate track car on the highway, in town, or show up to race with something that is built for the sole purpose of going fast. There aren't many amenities to make it comfortable but there are plenty to ensure you will be leading the pack.






2002 Honda Integra Type-R -- The Integra Type-R is more than just a piece of JDM engineering with a coffee can welded on the tailpipe. This is the Type-R, conceived from the chassis up to be lighter, faster, and more agile than its standard production model cousin. A stratospheric redline and plenty of flourishes underline its special status; the Type-R is built to keep pace with practically any V8.






2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 -- With the Charger SRT8, Dodge's SRT division delivers the kind of performance that compares favorably to European luxury sports cars. There is enough Hemi-powered juice to smoke the tires all day and wag your tail around any corner, all while toting up to four passengers. The Charger SRT8 is much more than a family car however: it's a four-door hot rod.






When you talk classic BMW, there is nothing that speaks to rarity and archetypal design quite like the 1973 BMW 2002 Turbo. In a time when turbos where primarily a race car feature, the 2002 brought turbos to the street. Wind one up and hang on; it's a wild ride and one well worth the seat time.






2007 Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione -- From every possible angle, the 8C Competizione is a steel-and-carbon-fiber supermodel of the highest order. You might be surprised that it wasn't designed by one of the famous Italian coachbuilders-it was designed in-house at Alfa Romeo's own design center. Of course, with those looks, a simple cruise down the boulevard will rack up double-takes.






1985 Toyota Sprinter Trueno GT Apex -- Any of the things the Sprinter Trueno is famous for could have made it an immortal JDM hero alone. Added up, it's clear that the humble Corolla-based coupe that slays giants both on the track and in the mountain passes is as legendary as they come. It's no wonder that, decades after it went out of production, the Trueno is still a major presence in the drifting and touge scenes.






2006 Lotus Exige Cup -- There are few quicker ways to get from point A to point B than the Lotus Exige, the pumped-up Elise variant that is both fast in a straight line and exceptionally nimble. But if points A and B are both on a track, then you'd be hard-pressed to find a better candidate than the Cup 240 version. Whether it's on the track or on the road you will have a good time getting there.






2010 SSC Ultimate Aero -- An American supercar from a line of cars that when it debuted in 2007 was the world's fastest production car. The SSC Ultimate Aero will have people staring at its low sleek and ultimately aerodynamic shape, and for its uniqueness among supercars.






1984 Volkswagen Rabbit GTI -- It's practical, economical, and it will eat up the backroads of Colorado in Forza Horizon. That's the beauty of the Rabbit GTI: it's a little car with a big heart and it's brimming with surprises.





1981 BMW M1 -- When German engineering and Italian design come together, what you get is truly amazing. The BMW M1 was the only mid-engined BMW ever mass-produced and only 456 were ever built. Racing homologation was the main purpose of developing this ultra-rare machine. We put it in Forza Horizon for pure fun.






1983 Audi Sport quattro -- Rally cars would never be the same once the quattro was introduced, and this road-going version has all but the livery to carry the tradition of leaving others in its dust. An all-wheel drive coupe with the acceleration of a supercar and supernatural agility has a welcome home in Forza Horizon. Spend some time on the back roads to truly appreciate this rally-spawned beast





2012 Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR-X -- A track-tuned Viper with a full cage, single seat, and more V10 horses than any other Viper should set you apart from the competition. Here's a car that was built for those with enough enthusiasm (read: guts) to match its performance capabilities. Don't even try to step to this unless you have got what it takes to handle the Viper's bite.






1966 Ford GT40 MkII -- The original Ford GT40 gave the Ferraris something to think about and the MkII earned American V8's some respect amidst European GT race cars. Take a seat in this classic prototype and see what a happens when Ford and Lola come together with a common goal of domination.






2011 Ferrari 458 Spider -- The 458 Spider is a topless animal that will let you soak in the sun as you tear up the highway. The 458 is a pristine example of Ferrari performance and exclusivity. You just can't hide driving one--and why would you when driving one makes you the envy of everyone within sight or earshot. The sound from the triple exhaust pipes is reason enough seek one out.






1997 Lamborghini Diablo SV -- Here's an automotive devil you won't mind making a deal with. As with all the bulls of Lamborghini, there is more speed to be found here than most roads can allow for. Not only is it as fast as low-flying aircraft, the interior provides creature comforts fit for a king.






2012 Land Rover Range Rover Supercharged -- If you want to go fast on any terrain, Land Rover can provide. When you want luxury, performance and unrivaled off-road capability, Land Rover also has got a ride for you. Take this four-door 4X4 anywhere, knowing it was designed to be the best for any situation.






2011 Volkswagen Scirrocco R -- With no current plans to bring the Scirrocco R to the U.S., the best chance you might have to drive this compact joy in Colorado is in Forza Horizon. Nonetheless, expect great fun, as this is the fastest "Rocco" of all time, with enough tech to handle like a race car.






1961 Jaguar E-type S1 --The original E-type, the S1, became an enduring symbol of the zenith of the British auto industry, and one of the most iconic Jaguars ever. All of the history and accolades shouldn't obscure the fact that the E-type is also quite enjoyable to drive-in particular, nothing else on the road sounds quite as sweet as the burble of a DOHC Jaguar six.






1977 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am -- "Son, you're looking at a legend." Big Enos was right and the Bandit drove that Firebird to places that cars were never meant to go. You'll be hard to catch behind the wheel of this iconic example of 1970s American muscle.






2013 Scion FR-S -- This long-awaited collaboration between Toyota and Subaru is no disappointment. The FR-S is very comfortable on back roads or even at the track thanks to its well-matched Subie flat-four and rear-wheel drive. Whether cruising with friends or getting the tail-end loose, fun is just a flick of the gas pedal away






2004 Mazda RX-8 Mazdaspeed -- With its Wankel engine, nearly unlimited rev capabilities, and suicide doors, the RX-8 is already cool. Add a few extra ponies, an incredible throttle response, and unique body accents and the Mazdaspeed editions takes "cool" to the next level. Take on for a spin and see just how fast you can hit the rev limiter in the first three gears.






2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe -- When Cadillac does something they do it with flare and style and performance in mind. The CTS-V coupe is no exception. In fact, it is a stand out example of how Cadillac has redefined American luxury car standards. Acceleration and handling are exceptional, coupled with the style that Caddy owners have come to expect.








2002 Ferrari Enzo Ferrari -- Never before and perhaps never again will technology and performance come together in a car this fine. Formula One technology is enhanced by components not even allowed at the highest level of racing, such as active aerodynamics and traction control. The Enzo represents one of the automotive world's ultimate expressions of performance and precision.






2011 Subaru WRX STi -- With enough traction to blind those behind you with your roost, you know the Subaru WRX STi has grip. The WRX STi is the product of years of successful racing in WRC. Its turbo-charged boxer engine has a definitive exhaust note so you will be heard before you are seen... and envied after you're gone.





1968 Abarth 500 esseesse -- What it lacks in power and refinement it makes up for in character and likability. The Abarth 500 is an reverse-engineered VW Bug designed by Italians for Italians. But you don't have to be from Italy to appreciate its glorious sound and adorable form. The Cinquecento is an acquired taste but, like most good things, once you have acquired a taste for them they become a part of you.






1971 Plymouth Cuda 426 HEMI -- This piece of classic Mopar muscle is ready to take names and kick tail. The HEMI was known not only for its hemispherical cylinders but for the fear it instilled in those that tried to run against it. Big block muscle was never the same and neither will the roads of Colorado be after this beast hits the asphalt.








1967 Lamborghini Miura P400 -- Forget the Sistine Chapel, this might be the highest form of Italian art. Without the Lamborghini Miura, the term supercar may never have come to be. In an age when the only race-derived designs came from Ferrari, the Miura showed a new direction. The Miura was conceived and designed three of Lambo's top engineers of the time. The result was a car whose form was revolutionary, and whose performance still thrills car lovers today.







1994 Mazda MX-5 Miata -- As an entry-level roadster, the Miata is tough to beat. Is fresh looking, its peppy, it takes to upgrading nicely and with the top down, it's a mobile tanning bed. It's no wonder the Miata is popular in amateur racing too -- it's a blast to drive.

I will update the thread when I get new info on the game.







1969 Dodge Charger R/T -- Whether you are looking to do your best Dukes of Hazzard impression or just to burn rubber, this Mopar muscle has you covered. With plenty of jumps to find in Forza Horizon you'll be screaming "yehaw" from the canyons to the plains.







2009 Lexus IS F -- Who you're trying to impress really doesn't matter when you're rolling in a Lexus. It is a status symbol that not only says "I have arrived," but that you love to drive. The IS F will appease both the performance minded and those that just want to turn heads.






1984 Peugeot 205 Turbo 16 -- Thanks to Group B rally homologation, 201 Peugeot 205 Turbo 16's were built. They are a rarity in road-going rally cars from the days when Peugeot ruled the rally world. The 205 is legendary with a wide stance, mid-engine, and substantial suspension that is ready to be slid, jumped, or drifted.

Its not identical as they have tweaked it but not to the point where its arcade-ish, not even close.

yes, but I am hoping for more than just internal upgrades as external upgrades is what makes forza "better" than other racing sim games.

Out of the box there is no e46 m3. But its almost a guarantee'd thing that they will include it in a car pack down the line to make more money off of us!

youre welcome guys we deserve the best!

I'll reserve the "will buy/will not buy" for when I play it at someone's house.

I pre-ordered the new Assassin's Creed, so as long as that's a good game, I'll be okay. It's not like I have that much time to play anymore anyways
