1988 McLaren #12 Honda McLaren MP4/4
On a list of Formula One’s most dominant cars, the MP4/4 sits at the top. After a disappointing season in 1987, McLaren recruited Team Lotus driver Ayrton Senna to join Frenchman Alain Prost in the team’s new car. The legendary drivers piloted the new MP4/4 lowline chassis, was powered by a Honda V6 turbo engine. The pair won McLaren a Constructors’ Championship by a margin of 134 points in 1988 and gave Senna and Prost a 1-2 finish in the F1 Driver’s Championship. The car won all but one of the 16 races that year, including ten 1-2 finishes. Senna edged out Prost in the F1 Drivers’ Championship, but even more significant was the margin of victory the MP4/4 delivered over its competitors, often lapping not only the back markers but the entire field. The MP4/4’s dominance created a turning point in F1 history – its forward-thinking, heavily-reclined driving position is still echoed in today’s race chassis and its indomitable V6 ended F1’s turbo era. In short, when you are driving the MP4/4 in Forza 6, you are driving an incomparable legend.
1980 Lancia #31 Lancia Corse Beta Montecarlo Turbo
This Lancia is wild in both appearance and performance. When reined in by a talented driver, the Lancia is capable of results that stand the test of time. This silhouette racer was piloted in its day by racing greats Walter Röhrl and Riccardo Patrese. The #31 proved its worth in Group 5 endurance racing with equal doses of forward-thinking design and illustrious driving. Group 5 regulations were lax at the time, requiring little more than the race car’s window material and size to match the original production model. The engine block and transmission case looked like production units, but this racer was a bespoke piece of turbocharged technology. The car had a tubular frame, a KKK turbo, extensive aero, and enough racing rubber to deliver nearly 400 hp to the tarmac.
2014 Maserati #35 M.Calamia Swiss Team MC Trofeo
The Maserati Trofeo series caters to Maserati owners and enthusiasts who want to compete on some of the most well-known race tracks in the world. Drivers can sign up for a single race, a subset of the season, or a full season. The Trofeo is a spec series for the latest sport coupe from Maserati. Suspension may be tuned, but otherwise the cars are equal, leaving the podium to the best driver and team.
1977 Holden Torana A9X
Homologation specials are a rare breed. Their race-bred features are available right out of the box, making homologated road cars both valuable and timeless. In the case of the Torana A9X, you also get a look that can turn the average driver into a bad boy with the turn of the key. Australians have known the Torana through many iterations. Holden built the cars – which were never largely exported – endearing the Torana to Australian enthusiasts. V8 Supercar fans flock to the Torana not only for its bulging lines and fat tires, but for a race history that is the stuff of legend. Peter Brock drove Toranas to victory in Australian Touring Car, including wins at the Bathurst 1000. In 1979, Brock won the Bathurst 1000 by an astounding six laps, setting a lap record in the process.
1969 Datsun 2000 Roadster
If you were looking for an affordable roadster in the 1960s, the Datsun 2000 may have been your best bet. Known as the Fairlady in the home market, this convertible would match up with the more expensive Triumphs, Fiats, MGs and Alfa Romeos of the era. Just drop the top and start having fun, but for far less of an entry fee. By 1969 the car had reached its peak power of around 135 hp from the two-liter, SOHC, four-cylinder coupled with a five-speed transmission. Speeds of 140 mph could be reached and, with the wind in your hair, that’s plenty fast. By 1970 the 2000 Roadster would be replaced to make way for the first Datsun “Z” cars.
2014 Mazda #70 SpeedSource Lola B12/80
After winning nine races in the final year of the Grand-Am Series, Mazda entered two cars (the #70 and the #7) in the inaugural P2 class of the Tudor United Sports Car Championship. Following the winning formula for endurance racing and the 24 Hours of Le Mans over the last 10 years, Mazda went with diesel power and a true production-based engine.
2000 Plymouth Prowler
From time to time, manufacturers take a chance and develop something simply for the sake of innovation. The Plymouth Prowler is the perfect example. It was produced at a projected financial loss in an effort to revitalize the Plymouth brand. While the revitalization never happened – Chrysler pulled the plug to focus on itself and Dodge – the Prowler is a standout in both style and design. In appearance and sound, the Prowler is a modern hot rod, with styling cues that harken to the T-bucket and later roadsters. It is sleek and, with its open-air and almost open-wheel design, the Prowler turns heads wherever it goes.
