Release Date: 30/09/2014

Another 13 cars have been revealed for Forza Horizon 2, bringing the total to 159 out announced so far. The final car count is said to be over 200, meaning that half of the entire car roster for Forza Horizon 2 has now been revealed. 

Without further ado, here's the latest additions to Forza Horizon 2's car collection, which includes a couple of surprises new to the Forza franchise.

1973 Ford Capri RS3100

LIke the Rolls Royce featured in last week's car reveals, the Ford Capri is something of a rarity in racing games. Its quintessentially European design turned heads at the time, and was considered as the European equivalent of the Ford Mustang.  Little wonder, then, that it went on to in British cop drama The Professionals and regularly competed in the European Touring Car Championship.

Only 250 RS3100s, a homologation model with a 3.1 litre engine, were produced, making it highly sought-after. No doubt it will be a joy to drive when it makes its debut in Forza Horizon 2.

1962 Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso

You simply can't help but lust over the unbridled beauty of this car. Styled by the legendary Pininfarina, the Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso is easily one of, if not the, best looking sports car ever built by Ferrari. Just look at the sumptuous curves on that body. This is also the first time the Berlinetta Lusso has featured in Forza – Turn10 included the California Spyder version of the 250 GT in Forza Motorsport 5 instead.  

2012 Bowler EXR S

Forza Horizon 2's map of Southern Europe is said to be more open than the confined canyons of Colardo in Forza Horizon, which means spending more time trekking off-road. The Bowler EXR S is the perfect machine for the job. Sporting a modified version of the Range Rover Sport’s supercharged 5.0-litre V8 producing 550bhp, this rally-raid monster is more than capable at handling rough terrain. This particular variant is also the first Bowler designed for road use, making it truly all-terrain and able to handle everything Forza Horizon 2's diverse map can throw at it. 

2011 Aston Martin V12 Zagato (Villa d’Este)

Built in collaboration with Zagato, the V12 Zagato (Villa d’Este) is a voluptuous concept car which debuted at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa D’Este in Italy where it won the "Best in Class" award for Concept and Prototypes. It's certainly no slouch, with its V12 engine producing 510 bhp, and is notable for competing in the Nürburgring 24-hour race. 

1993 McLaren F1

The McLaren P1 was the cover car star of Forza Motorsport 5, but Turn10 hasn't neglected its predecessor: the legendary McLaren F1. To this day, it's still the fastest naturally aspirated car in the world 20 years on. At the time, it was awashed with novel quirks previously unseen in a roadcar: the driver's seat was positioned in the center of the car like a formula one car, it had a lightweight full carbon fiber monocoque chassis and the engine compartment was lined with gold. Not only was the British brute the fastest roadcar ever built at the time with a V12 engine packing in 627 bhp, it was also one of the most expensive – buying one brand new would set you back nearly one million dollars. 

Here's a list of the remaining cars announced this week, which marks the return of some old favourites:

  • 2010 Audi TT RS Coupé
  • 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air
  • 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392
  • 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO
  • 1992 Ford Escort RS Cosworth
  • 2004 Honda Civic Type-R
  • 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo
  • 2013 KTM X-Bow R
  • 1992 Nissan Silvia CLUB K's

Forza Horizon 2's car list is certainly shaping up to be pleasingly diverse and in keeping with the Forza franchise, with a rich roster spanning many continents plus a few surprises making their racing game debut for good measure. 

What are you looking forward to driving most out of this week's eclectic line-up/
