“Forza Motorsport 5” Kicks Off Car Reveals

 

From Xbox Wire:

Starting today, “Forza Motorsport” fans can track all the latest and greatest car announcements for “Forza Motorsport 5” via the “Forza Motorsport 5 Showroom,” an online car guide at ForzaMotorsport.net.  Updated weekly, the showroom will profile some of the “Forza” community’s favorite vehicles, and it will serve as one-stop-shop for the complete list of cars revealed to-date.

The “Forza Motorsport 5 Showroom” can be found here and fans are encouraged to check back every Wednesday from now through mid-November to see what cars are unveiled next.

This week’s Featured Cars:

2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X GSR
When Mitsubishi designed an all-new Lancer, the basis of the Evolution X, they built a healthy dose of pure aggression into the bodywork. This suits the Evo just fine, as it’s been beefed up in the performance department too. The heart of the matter is the new 2-liter turbo-charged four cylinder that uses an aluminum block for the first time in an Evo, which saves an important 26 lbs. even with the addition of features like dual variable valve timing and a timing chain. In addition to saving weight, the new engine makes even more power, a total of 295 horsepower. But that’s not all—aluminum also finds its way into the body of the Evo, and less weight and more power necessarily equals better performance. The overall impression the Evo leaves you with is that it could tackle any corner you can throw at it, and this is an impression borne out by the experience behind the wheel.

2009 Zonda Cinque Roadster
Pagani didn’t mess with a successful formula with the release of a Zonda Cinque Roadster, retaining all of the distinctive Zonda elements you know and love and improving them—and then lopping off the top. Although it’s street legal, it’d be unfortunate to mar the lower carbon fiber bodywork on a speed bump, because even with suspension that can lift up the nose in just such a circumstance the Cinque is still ludicrously low. If you do snag the front spoiler, good luck finding a spare: in case the name of this Pagani didn’t tip you off, only five Cinques will be made, and they’re each eye-wateringly expensive. As much an engineering masterpiece as a stunning performer, this rare Zonda is surely one of the most unique supercars ever produced.

2002 Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec II
As the penultimate edition of the “R34” series Skyline GT-R, and in fact, as one of the last of the traditionally inline-six powered Skylines, the V-Spec II is destined to be a collectible. The V-Spec II (the “V” stands for “victory,” by the way) comes with all of the goodies that the original V-Spec had, but it’s even harder-edged thanks to increased stiffness and lighter weight (primarily due to a special carbon fiber hood, spotted at a distance by the small NACA duct).  With well over 300 horsepower, the GT-R is not only quick, it’s very much so—particularly in poor traction situations where the all-wheel drive system comes into the fore.
