Another week another Forza Horizon 3 update and we’re getting more and more excited about the launch of the new racing game because even more amazing cars are being confirmed.

Last week, we were drooling at the prospect of driving, amongst many others, a 1977 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am which gained its cultural significance from the smash hit movie Smokey and the Bandit starring Burt Reynolds of course. We really want to be the Bandit, jump broken bridges and outrun the law and hopefully we will be doing just that in that 6.6-litre V8 black and gold muscle car. But now, another iconic car from the movies is joining the growing list of greats for the new game – a 1958 Plymouth Fury. For those that may not know why this particular model is famous (shame on you!) it was the killer car in the Stephen King novel Christine! The movie version, directed by horror master John Carpenter, was just as good as the book, if not better. Fans of the Fifties will really enjoy the songs that the Fury known as Christine plays on its radio before going on a killing spree. It sure gave autonomous driving a whole different and far more sinister meaning…  

Some of the other new cars include a trio of rally-ready models including the Abarth Fiat 131, Ford RS200 Evolution and Ford Escort 1800. These three should be a lot of fun to cane on those dusty Aussie Outback roads. Among the newer cars, there is also a 2015 Infiniti Q60 Concept, and a relatively new 2011 BMW 1 Series M Coupe. But of the classics, we are really excited that the BMW Isetta 300 has been included as has the 1979 Camaro Z28. You might want to grow your mullet in celebration of the Chevy.

No doubt another list will follow and when it does, we’ll be right on it. In the meantime have a butchers at the latest lot of cars for the exciting new game due for release in September…
