Best Cars in Forza Horizon 3

Livirus
I adore Forza Horizon 3, despite feeling like it prefers looks over features (much like every Supercar ever. Not complaining, though), especially its massive collection of cars. Now that Forza Motorsport 7 is out, and there is probably no more DLC coming to this game, I think it's about time we settle the debate: which car is the best out of them all? I'm talking about performance and how easily they can be driven.

The Top Ten

1 2014 Porsche 918 Spyder

I've heard this thing is a beast and I want it so bad! someone please put this on the auction house!

weenie

3 2003 Nissan Fairlady Z

If you didn't expect this one, I don't blame ya. From my experience, this is quite an underrated car. I think this is one of those cars that's good for almost any type of racing. I can see this with an off-road set, rallycross set, AND track race set. Sure, it's not too impressive when stock, and a lot of people think it's an ugly car, but when I fitted it with some rally upgrades, I was blown away by how quick it was. I've won more Online events with my rally-built 350Z than any other car in my garage, and I'm not just talking about races. The only reason that I didn't put this car at the top was because it was a bit too fast at times during a rally race, and I've spun it a few times before. - Livirus

4 2554 AMG Transport Dynamics M12S "Warthog"

Simply dubbed the "Warthog", this fictional off-road car, which is actually from a wholly different video game, called Halo, might not have the performance as most other cars on this list, but that's because this car doesn't belong on asphalt. It's not listed as "Extreme Off-road" for nothing, after all, and I must say, this car is almost perfect for cross country racing. You see, this car is not fast...at all, but that's actually exactly what you want when you're literally digging your route through an unprepared wasteland, or a piece of land full of crops to run over. I remember my first ever Online championship, and it was mostly off-road based. The final race was with this car, and let me tell you, I skyrocketed to the top! The Warthog is like a lawnmower for skill chains on certain routes. - Livirus

5 2002 Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec II

How could I not? Even if it's just outside the top 5, the R34 deserves a spot on this list. Not only is it a legend among JDM cars, but it's also, when fitted with the right upgrades, fast, smooth, and good-looking. - Livirus

6 2000 Nissan Silvia Spec-R

Oh man, the S15. One of my favorite JDM cars ever. If you're looking for a car with lots of options for its physical appearance, the S15 is one of the best choices in the game. It's almost got Need for Speed levels of customization, and the best part is that it's not even that expensive. Even better, you can pick this car as your first officially owned vehicle at the beginning of the game, after you get to drive the amazing Lamborghini Centenario for your then second time ever. Did I mention how good this car looks with a body kit slapped on? - Livirus

7 2015 Ultima Evolution Coupe 1020

The thing that puts this car on the list is one simple factor: it's incredibly cheap for its class. Its performance rivals that of most hypercars in the game, yet its one of the cheapest high-performing cars in the game, starting at only 130k. Alternatively, because this is a DLC car, you could buy the Ultima 720 GTR, though you'll get less for more: it performs a little less good than the 1020, and costs 20k more. But hey, at least there's not a paywall for that car. - Livirus

8 1970 AMC Rebel "The Machine"

To put it in short: this is an amazing rally car, but it's also one of those cars that you shouldn't max out, unless you want an undriveable vehicle. - Livirus

9 Lamborghini Centenario

A fast and cool looking car

So good it is so fast it is max upgrade

So good.

My favorite car. I can't unlock it's 100% potential but I have unlocked it's maximum potential and I haven't lost a single game with this car. Beast! Love it.

10 2015 Ferrari LaFerrari

It is amazing

Faster than the centenario

Beauty speed history

The Newcomers

? Lamborghini Huracan H E

Fastest car when it’s upgraded
It can go over 400mph at 9.2 speed

The Contenders

11 2014 Ferrari FXX K

Good for tracks with a lot of corners because its slow on the straights

This track toy is what you would expect from this legendary Italian brand. It's looks are dazzling, and it's smooth like butter. The only downsides of this car, which are the reasons why I put it so low on the list, are the speed and the price. This car ranks the highest of any other car in the game on the autoshow (stock), but for that, you get rather underwhelming speed, and 2.7 million credits of your in-game account. The thing about the speed, though, is the simple fact that this car was built for the opposite reasons as the Bugatti Veyron. The Ferrari can take corners much quicker, due to its, for its class, slowness, whereas the Veyron can barely take a corner at half the pace of it. - Livirus

Good for rivals

12 Audi R8 V10 Plus

I drive this car every day, stable at high speeds and fun at low speeds. Great car.

It is actually a very good car

Awesome car overall.

Just an amazing car overal

13 1972 Reliant Supervan III

Probably the worst car in the game for a serious race, but that's not why it's on the list. It's because this car is a mix of stupid and endlessly amusing. Seriously, I once had a duel with a guy driving an Ultima 1020, on sand, and it was the best time of my life. Partially because my opponent knew exactly what I was doing, and intentionally slowed down to give me a push every now and then. - Livirus

I won thousands of races with this car. It is a unbelievable steal from the action house. I have at least fifty of them with different tunes even pros use this car.

Want it in the list

I also won many races with stock against x tier cars. My garage has probably 200 and they sell for 20 mil on a bad day. The other people don’t know what they are thinking about

14 Toyota Supra A80 Toyota Supra A80
15 Suzuki Swift

How is the higher than the Veyron

Amazing

16 Lamborghini Urus

The fancienes of a Lexus, the toughness of a Jeep and the speed of a Bugatti Veyron...…. only if you load upgrade

It is so god

17 2017 Ford GT

Smooth, fats, and an overall beast on the track

AMAZING!

Amazing

All round a good car, easy to use at high speeds. great for winning races

18 Jaguar D-Type

Its one of the free roam fun cars for multiplayer as it's the fastest car on the game (when upgraded to S2).
With speed up to 300 mph.

19 Mazda RX-7 FC

If you want a perfect drift car,buy this car

20 Nissan Skyline GT-R

Best car I love da handling on this thing!

Okay.So this car is flat-out AMAZING like I was going through cars from the asian car category and then this car popped up out of no where and I was like,this thing is dazzling! I picked the car up for like 100k or something like that but then I tried it and I was blown away this things speed and handling it was super cool to use so go check out this car!

Cool car

I know that the Nissan spec ll is already on this list but with this car I see a BIG difference.For starters I got this car today because I was looking for the fast and the furious cars from the movies anyway I was messing around(strolling through) random nissian cars now then I saw this car the one I have is blue maybe silver and has the flag of Japan on the top of the car as well as the words "japan" and the flag on both sides.i did not have enough CR to even bid on it so I did some races and finally got enough to buy it out when I did that I took the car out to drive now at this time I found a cool race track going through paradise city so I tested this out and then thought DANG DIS THING IS A BEAST! And then I noticed that this cars handling is so good that you can pass through even in the tightest traffic also this cars speed is beast there are so many reasons to like this car looks,handling,speed and MUCH MORE so go check this car out please

21 2010 Lamborghini Murcielago

Ok let's get started this car is amazing in looks with dat white paint that has the black lettering is sexy and modifying the car with those godly tunes is so worth it and it can go really fast if yu tune it right also all ya have to do to get one

The liberty walk kit makes the acceleration so god

22 McLaren 570S Coupé

Mc larens BEST car and the fh3 s too

Great all round and sexy

The McLaren 570s is my absolute favorite car in the game. It’s a bargain for less than 300,000 cr and if you upgrade its stock engine it can hit speeds easier than some HyperCars. With the stock engine upgraded the thing launches like a beast and accelerates fast all the way through the gears. It never stops accelerating until it hits top speed. The car is so light and areodynamic you can throw it through most corners at good speed. This thing will leave any modern super car in the dust and even make some hypercars feel like they aren’t worth the price. At this price, there’s no beating the value.

23 Bugatti Veyron

Fast and only 2.2 million

24 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06

Handling is awful

Very good balancing of the car, great handling and acceleration, if you keep it original

25 Hennessey Venom GT

It has so much grip

Hennessey Venom GT is pretty good
Speed and Braking

26 BMW Isetta

One of the fastest cars in the game, can easily defeat the centenario in any race.

27 Porsche 918 Spyder

I loved this car outside of Forza, and then I saw it in a #Forzathon event and I got it that day. I thought the car was amazing! Then I showed my friend it and realized that it could be X class. I drive this car mostly and it looks great in stock color. I really suggest doing Goliath with it because it has great handling and speed, and most of all braking. 10 out of 10

This car was able to be obtained by forzathon challenges. Even at its stock setting it is arguably the most powerful Car in the game and Can be upgraded to X class easily even at its current price of around 1.9 million credits it is worth it It can easily beat the centanario and any car on this list if upgraded correctly

28 Pagani Zonda Cinque

It's a Pagani

29 Pagani Zonda R

Especially when you upgrade to X class. Even before though, it is super great

Got it today and the engine is sooo cool

I KNOW IT IS DLC AND I DO NOT HAVE IT BUT IT IS AMAZING

30 BAC Mono

I love this car it's traction is godly and it holds multiple world records (like fastest goliath race lap of around 7 minutes)

One of the fastest tuned cars posible

I own this car and it’s a beast

31 Audi Quattro S1 E2
32 Dodge Dart

It is a rocket

If you tune this car properly, then with its 0-60 time of 1,2 seconds and a top speed of 275, there are very very few cars to beat it in a drag race

33 Ferrari 458 Italia

Fking great drift car when updraded to LB

34 Lamborghini Sesto Elemento

Amazing!

35 McLaren P1 McLaren P1

Why is this not on the list? It has awesome handling and speed!

36 M4 Horizon Edition

You've gotta love the speed of this thing. The paint job on this thing is awesome as well.

37 Ferrari Dino 246 GT '71

Best barn find

38 Ford Bronco

Total Rocket for its class! Great for playground games as well as races.

39 Opel Corsa B

Best overall racecar

40 Ferrari 458 Speciale

Pretty much the best overall car. its good for rivals and it's the top 3 best drag car if not the only car to compete with the dodge dart. (as well as the Sesto Elemento)

41 Saleen S7

The one below me is me like a year or two ago lol

Okay so I got this car today and I'm surprised it was not already on this list to get one is just go to auction and pay like 200,000 cr after that tune it k IF u like looks put a spoiler on it and then throw a upgrade on it it's not expensive and it raises the speed good enough to pay off for the spoiler lowering speed bad it ends up rasing the speed higher than stock so get this car k

42 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor Shelby

Awesome machine with the right mods this thing eats cross country races

If you upgrade it with the right tune you can get it over 300

43 2005 Mazda MX-5

Put the 4 Rotor engine in it and you have a god.

Incredible car!

44 1985 Ford RS200 Evolution

The car sounds amazing, a beast all around yet even better if fitted with the right upgrades. I don't use it for races but when I tested it several times, it was consistent throughout temporary tracks I set up so I can train for races. - Kwaysar

45 1990 Jaguar XJS

About this car, it may seem mediocre without any upgrades. However, when upgraded to Max B-Class and tuned so it can turn better, the car was just consistent almost every lap and was surprisingly easy to maneuver around a corner despite AWD. With just the right upgrades and tuning revisions, this car can easily dominate races. - Kwaysar

46 Mercedes-Benz A 45 AMG Horizon Edition

I think it's one of the best rally cars in the game because for starters, If fully upgraded, it can reach 265 mph.

47 Ariel Nomad

I have never lost a race with this car. Whether you’re speeding down the Outback highway, or smashing through fields of grass and sand, this is the best overall car, if upgraded correctly. Plus, its like 75,000-100,000 including the upgrades.

48 Mini Cooper

It can do very good burnouts.

49 Mercedes C63 AMG S

Great acceleration! Good handling if upgraded correctly along with the suspension and looks great. If you don't upgrade correctly, then the car won't "communicate" with other parts correctly. Great car, but hard to tune.

50 1986 BMW M635i

No doubt, one of the best sleepers in the game
Just upgrade everything to race parts and you will hit close to 230mph with no tuning what so ever
Reminds me of something out of a James Bond movie
The handling is insanely good

In my opinion one if the best sleeper cars in the game
I just put all race upgrades on it with no tuning and it tops out at 232mph
Reminds me of something you would see in a James Bond Movie
