Now we know... the first 167 cars to feature in Forza Motorsport 7 have been revealed, with one or two surprises in store for fans of the series...

The mammoth first batch of cars revealed by Turn 10 Studios gives fans a great insight into the fantastic level of diversity coming to the new game. With historic cars from some of the best moments of motoring history, right the way through to the bang up-to-date Aston Martin DB11 of 2017, Forza Motorsport 7 appears to have a little something for everyone.

Unfortunately it does look like the developers have taken the path most trodden, namely selecting a number of unique cars that don't necessarily form a coherent full series schedule, however with the proposed launch roster of cars reaching in excess of 700 cars (yeah, 700. SEVEN HUNDRED!!), it is fair to assume that one will be able to pull together a reasonably diverse grid of similar performance machines when setting up a race event come launch day.

Interestingly the list has a couple of surprise inclusions, like the world renowned McLaren Honda MP4/4 of 1988 specification, the Formula One car that powered Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost to almost uncountable victories during that season, eventually giving Senna his first Formula One World Championship.

As with practically any racing game worth it's salt in the current marketplace, the new Forza title benefits from a number of Porsche machines, with one of the standout highlights of not only the Porsche content, but the game in general, is the 2017 specification 919 Hybrid that raced, and won, at Le Mans this year and looks odds on favourite to wrap up another World Endurance Championship victory at the close of the current season.

As can be seen from the first reveal list below, Porsche are joined in the simulation by the exceptionally difficult to secure, and all too rare, Ferrari licence. Unlike other sims with the red cars, Forza Motorsport 7 does seem to have selected a pretty interesting and unique selection of cars from the Prancing Horse. A nice mix of old and new are present in this first batch reveal, giving us some stunning models from the history of the brand, perhaps with the majestic 1948 Ferrari 166MM Barchetta immediately standing out as one to take note of come release day.

With diversity as the buzz word in this new release, the slower end of the spectrum (relatively speaking..) has also been catered for, with a number of close racing friendly machines listed, plus the odd SUV for good measure.. Oh, when I say SUV, I actually mean something a bit more sporty that the regular school run vehicle, more along the lines of the rarely seen 2014 Lamborghini Urus.. still at concept stage, but due for a 2018 release, this one is 4 wheel drive on steroids...

Regardless of how realistic it is I had a hell of a lot of fun with horizon 3 and so I think ill give this one a good go as well
I'll get it sometime down the line because of the parts tuning aspect and amount of cars, mostly. While it's not a full on sim, similar to Gran Turismo it's just fun to experiment with what-if builds, and this one is on PC for a change. My purchase decision only depends on how the release on PC is... if it's running as bad as FM6 Apex and FH3 then I'm not really willing to put down full price in the Windows Store...

Forza is a car collecting game. Simulation of all those cars isn't really it's strong suit.

You made reference to the 700 cars as multiple liveries were being counted. I dont see the point in that negative perspective when it clearly will have still more cars than many other racing titles.

I think by the 7th title people have a fair idea of what Forza is and what to expect from it.
Turn 10 regardless have been pretty strong as developers, even if they do not seek to portray accurately "motorsport racing" as Dan has said in the past Forza is made by car lovers and lovers of racing games for lovers of cars and racing games.

Car count aside, (which is pretty much Microsoft flexing it's financial muscles) if they really made the game for "car lovers and lovers of racing games", it would have a level of accuracy to make it at least slightly believable.

not true...its a microsoft title at the end of the day & not a turn10 one; its supposed to look good/feel good/make big bucks. doesnt mean its not made by & for car lovers & fans of racing games. not everyone wants to play or create a sim title.

Oh come on friend.....
It's called entertainment and companies that produce material for entertainment have a rather predictable and bad habbit of wanting to make lots of money. That means mass market appeal...

You want sim accuracy or the need to discuss it, maybe you parked in the wrong thread. :confused:
Why criticise the game for being something it may never be, or something some want it to be but it just won't.

I think many are just hoping its the best Forza title to date but also the first proper Forza designed to run on PC as well. Some will be glad if it sucks. just so they can moan some more. I personally think its great to see it being available on PC and working with a wide selection of PC wheels.

Your allowed to be positive and happy too...

Looks good, should be fun..!
Makes PC2's list look a bit small....
If, a big if, they get the force feed back right, people could be in for a shock..
It has been suggested that Fanatec are/have been involved.
Time will tell...

Looks like a decent list as a start, hopefully they will include more newer race cars, like the "new" GT3, GT4 and TCR in FM7. The race cars on the list are fairly old other than a handful of new cars.

I really doubt the console players did not have the same unhealthy desire for GT like what the PC players have. All I see is the console players wanting **** boxes which I hope they aren't adding them.

Turn 10 is a massive fraud. Well, not a fraud because they make bones about it -- they don't care about simulation. Forza should be in the same category as Grand Theft Auto, racing-wise.
