Previous editions of the Forza Garage series have focused on vehicles built to tame the wilds of the Australian Outback. However let’s not forget that in Forza Horizon 3, there are still roads to travel and compete on. For Week 5 the focus is on some of the amazing road cars that are on their way. Whether you favor American-made, the best of Japan, or something truly special from Europe, there is a lot of speed to be found in today’s list.
For decades, iterations of the Nissan GT-R have been showing the world that Japan makes supercars too. When it comes to luxury and performance cast in legendary form, Aston Martin brings dreams to life. And if the latest Cadillac CTS-V hasn’t proven itself to you already in Forza Motorsport 6, then just wait and see what its perfect mix of horsepower and handling will bring to Australia in Forza Horizon 3.
Connoisseurs of the classics will appreciate seeing perennial favorites such as the 1967 Chevelle SS 396 and the wing-endowed 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona. And for hot rodders, the 1940 Ford De Luxe will make a fantastic canvas. Modern muscle cars aren’t left out either as players will have access to the 2014 Chevrolet SS, and the 1993 Ford SVT Cobra R.
Supercar fans will also have some great machines to choose from including the Jaguar XJ220. For fans of the last Fast and the Furious film, the W Motors Lykan Hypersport also makes an appearance. Also, while this isn’t a supercar, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that the Subaru Brat is also in this list.
2017 Nissan GT-R
More refined than ever and with even more power to boot, this is the latest model of the Japanese supercar that fans affectionately dub “Godzilla.” The gaping V-Motion grille is the centerpiece of a new front-end looks and also provides better engine cooling. Below, the new lip spoiler and bumper enhance what is already one of the most aggressive looks on the road. All wheel drive, massive twin turbos, and so much technology keeping power to the pavement give the GT-R an advantage on any surface.
2016 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan
You may have seen this American Super Sedan in the Turn 10 Summer Car Pack for Forza Motorsport 6. If you are into drifting, this beast is ready to slide you in style. If you have an ear for exhaust, these notes will sing to you. Or if you just want to roll in the finest luxury performance sedan to come out of America, the CTS-V should suit you. For outright speed and aggressive styling, this Cadillac will not disappoint. It’s a hybrid of the most awesome kind, mixing the best chassis Cadillac has ever built with the proven dominance of the Corvette Z06 drivetrain.
2016 Aston Martin Vantage GT12
The new limited edition GT12 is inspired by Aston Martin’s success in GT3 racing. This Vantage has been re-engineered taking in the experience and knowledge earned on the race track. It’s leaner by 220 pounds over the Vantage S, and boasts a significantly higher output as well. The GT12 is wider and lower with a prominent aero kit that not only screams racing, but also delivers substantial downforce to make cornering even more effortless. Aston Martin has made history in motorsport, and the GT12 gives you your own chance to drive a legend.
