IndyCars & historic F1 cars confirmed for Forza 5

James Allen On June 12, 2013

Though everyone at Team VVV Towers was jumping for joy when Turn 10 confirmed open-wheeled cars would feature in Forza Motorsport 5, one glaring point remained to dull our spirits a tad: no details on what sans-fender cars will appear in the game were mentioned.

That is, until now.

Whilst more will undoubtedly be added to the FM5 car roster, it's been confirmed that a trio of single-seater racing cars will be featured in the Xbox One's premier racing title from launch.

Vintage F1 fans will rejoice in the fact two legendary Formula One cars from the 1976 season - James Hunt's McLaren M23 and Niki Lauda's Ferrari 312-2 - shall be showcased in Forza 5, allowing players to emulate that iconic duel on the title's various licenced and fictional tracks.

If IndyCar racing is more up your street, then you'll be pleased to know that four teams competing in this year's IndyCar championship - Andretti Autosport (featured in the screengrabs and teaser trailer), Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing, Target Chip Ganassi Racing, and Team Penske - will be represented with their own Dallara IndyCar in Forza 5.

Turn 10 Studios assures us that more open-wheeled car confirmations will be announced over the course of the summer, along with other Forza Motorsport 5 announcements, so keep your eyes peeled on the Team VVV website over the coming months for when the Forza 5 news breaks.

With E3 in full swing, we've also got some Forza footage from the show floor in the pipelines, so do visit our YouTube channel for the latest FM5 gameplay clips.
