Forza Motorsport 3 Full Car List, Initial DLC News


Turn-10 Studios has released the entire car list for its upcoming third entry into its racing simulator franchise. As always, the list is robust, has great variety, and includes cars from various eras of racing. Instead of me listing 400 cars from 50 manufacturers, look for the car list here.

Also released was news that the initial piece of DLC for Forza 3 will be FREE. Oh wait, the catch. You have to purchase a brand-new copy of the game in order to get it. This is obviously combating the used game market, as it should. The list of goodies, provided by, includes 2 tracks and 10 cars:

The 2 tracks included are:

  • The Benchmark High Speed Ring which is best described as an old airfield and hangar converted into a race track and automotive playground. The track is characterized by 3.96 miles of rough surfaces and huge open areas, featuring a massive oval, an 8-lane drag strip, and an airplane hangar that players can drive (or drift) through.
  • And, the returning circuit, Sidewinder Proving Grounds.

The 10 free cars are:

  • ’65 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA
  • ’64 Aston Martin DB5 Vantage
  • ’81 BMW M1
  • ’60 Chevrolet Corvette
  • ’69 Dodge Charger
  • ’57 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa
  • ’80 Fiat 131 Abarth
  • ’67 Lamborghini Miura P400
  • ’71 Nissan Skyline 2000 GT-R
  • ’65 Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe

While I won’t be purchasing FM3 at launch, I’ll eventually pick it up once it makes it to the Platinum Hits line-ups. That’s not because I think that the game won’t be great, but because I have certain titles that I’m targeting with my funds. At any rate, if you are into racing games, then you owe it to yourself to pick up Forza Motorsport 3.

  • I preordered the super special edition thats $80 so im getting all these cars but most of them arent impressive. The tracks arent real either which is a bummer.

    Very disappointed in Forza 3, car list is similar, game plays similar. Argh why so i believe the hype!

  • Many people were ‘very disappointed’ from Forza 1 to Forza 2. At what point are you racing fans going to STOP BUYING THE GAME?!

    If you are disappointed in how the game looks, then DON’T BUY IT!!

    Sorry to yell, but why pay money for a game that you feel is disappointing?

  • Because they make it sound like it will be radically different. If you watch the trailer for Forza 3 that they showed at E3 it makes it look like it has a amazing damage system but in reality its the same as it has always been.

    Companies just straight up lie in these previews. I usually dont pay attention to this crap but my deep desire to have a sim with a engine developed in this century overcame my usual skepticism.

  • It’s tough to make a racing sim that’s ‘radically different’. Gran Turismo certainly set the bar high with it’s first 2 titles, but the licensing system killed me and I haven’t played GT since. Forza 1 was the best racing title available for a console when it came out. DiRT was really good at simulating rally racing, but didn’t do well as far as tracks were concerned. Until consumers start demanding more realistic simulators by not purchasing the game, then maybe the devs will try to rebuild, but until then, why try when the game will be bought anyway?

    Just my opinion, of course.

  • The devs do have less motivation if they know they can crank out crap and still sell a million (madden) but it has got quite bad recently.

    GRID and DiRT are my go to racing games, they arent very realistic but they are just amazingly fun and the cosmetic/mechanical damage is a big part of it.

  • So apparently CodeMasters is your developer of choice when it comes to racing titles? 🙂

  • Yeah i would say so, if you are just looking for a fun racing game nothing else even comes close, not even Burnout (which everyone around here seems to love).

    There games arent the way to go if you are looking for a simulation though. The F1 game they released on PS3 is a disaster, but their F1 2010 title could be promising.

    More importantly i think Codemasters knows how to make racing games appealing to the mass market. By adding features such as rewinding and getting X Games on board for DiRT 2 they attract more people. I certainly wasent happy to see the car selection in DiRT 2 but WRC is almost unheard of in America but the ex-BMX and skateboarders on X-Games are much more popular.
