‘Forza Horizon 2’ Car Reveal – Check Out the Week Three Cars
This week we are announcing another 15 radical rides, all specifically built for Xbox One,
Here we are at week three of our Forza Horizon 2 car reveals. In case you haven’t heard, Forza Horizon 2 will include more than 200 cars at launch. This week we are announcing another 15 radical rides, all specifically built for Xbox One, that are ready to tear up the countryside of southern Europe on October 2nd.
Nearly every production car from this week’s list has evolved from notable racing history. In 1992, Lancia took its sixth consecutive manufacturer’s title in World Rally competition. The homologated version of the 1992 Lancia Delta HF Integrale EVO found in the game absolutely screams to dust up the back roads. Mercedes needed to keep pace with the BMW M3 in the Group A Touring Car Championship and its efforts resulted in the 1990 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16 Evolution II; after one look, all you need to say is, “That wing.” The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport and the Hennessey Venom GT have all your speed records covered. Looking to manage your throttle control? Either of these rides will challenge you to reel them in.
