Forza Horizon – Revealed Vehicles Roundup 1

Turn 10 and Playground games have began to announced the vehicles we can expect to drive on release day of Forza Horizon which is a new title in the Forza franchise taking a new direction and heading into the open world style game.

Forza Horizon will use realistic physics with around 65 types of off-road terrain including mud, gravel, grass and asphalt. You will also have the ability to visit Paint Shops, Petrol Stations and Car Dealerships. Forza Horizon is expect for release exclusively on Xbox 360 around October 23 2012 in the United States and in Europe on October 26th 2012.

Vehicles currently announced:

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.
