As a long-term Forza player, I have come across some interesting situations with rare cars. Sometimes you may spot cars that aren’t obtainable whatsoever. Sometimes there are cars featured in the game, but you haven’t even seen a glimpse of them anywhere. There’s always a little secret in every title, but extremely difficult to notice them.
Below you’ll see top 10 rarest cars ever featured in Forza. Without a doubt, you may have seen some of them, but that doesn’t make them any less rare. It’s not easy to get your hand on any of these cars.
10. Chryslus Rocket 69
The top 10 rarest cars in Forza got to be the Chryslus Rocket 69 which has only appeared in Forza Motorsport 6. Turn 10 Studios partnered up with the developers of Fallout 4 to add this unique car into the game. Most likely for marketing purposes. Even though most Forza Motorsport 6 players have heard of it, it’s not really a common vehicle in the franchise. Unlike the Warthog and Regalia, this atomic V8 engined car never returned again.
The Rocket 69 were gifted to everyone who owned Forza Motorsport 6.
9. Tesla Roadster Sport
The Tesla Roadster is surprisingly underrated in my opinion, especially back in the Forza Motorsport 4 days once it was released. They deliver a great amount of instant torque and really fun driving around but never got the love it should’ve received. The brand surely got appreciated by fans in recent years. However, due to licensing issues, Tesla may no longer be playable in video games.
A little fun fact before moving on to top eight; no Tesla model in Forza have been carried over to the next title. Not even the Tesla Model S. All the Tesla Model S featured in Forza are from different years and come with different amount of power.
8. Suzuki #1 Monster Sport SX4 Hill Climb Special
This Suzuki is probably the first hill climb car to appear in Forza and was a part of the December car pack in Forza Motorsport 4. It’s an extremely tuned version of the Suzuki SX4 Sportback which fans highly appreciated. Considering Forza mostly received normal road cars in the DLC packs, a Pikes Peak monster like this was definitely needed.
7. Aston Martin Cygnet
Due to the high emissions from Aston Martin’s giant V12 engines, they were forced to create an environmental friendly car within their line-up. From 2011-2013 this little Toyota IQ-based car with barely 100 horsepower were sold all over Europe. It even made its way to Forza Motorsport 4 in June car pack. Although it was a funny little car made by the car markers who produce the largest engines, it sadly didn’t carry over to the next titles. Luckily, it was free for all Forza Motorsport 4 players before it reached End Of Life status.
6. Gumpert Apollo Enraged
Gumpert was a classic car in the Xbox 360 days and appeared in several games, however, the upgraded version of Gumpert Apollo called “Enraged” was added right after the release of the first Horizon title. Sadly, none of the Gumperts made it to the next generation consoles. In other words, the Enraged version of Apollo will always stay in Forza Horizon 1, unless Playground Games receives license and decide to add it back. But never say never. Since the Apollo Intensa Emozione were added in Forza Horizon 4, we could see the older models too.
The leaked list of upcoming cars, however, does not show any Gumperts. There are some cars featured in previous titles though.
5. 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302: Pizza Hut Edition
Not even I knew this car existed. The Boss 302, which is already a very rare car in Forza had an even rarer version, the Pizza Hut edition! For anyone who downloaded the Pizza Hut app through Xbox Live and ordered between May and June 2013 would receive the car.
Forza Horizon 1 had several special liveries gifted to players, all for promotional purposes. There was also a Mustang GT500 and Challenger SRT8 392, both with Rockstar liveries gifted to only a few players across the globe.
4. 2013 Dodge Viper GTS Horizon “Gone Gold” Edition
The cover car of Forza Horizon 1 was the 2013 Viper GTS, a car which engine is almost as great as a truck’s. Who could wait to drive that beast back in 2012? It even received a special livery. The “Gone Gold” edition of the Viper could only be obtained if you beat the demo version of the game. Once purchasing the game after beating the demo, this Viper would be gifted to you.
3. MINI John Cooper Works Coupé
My all-time favorite game, Forza Horizon 1, came with unicorn cars and several vehicles that were gifted by the developers only. Deep down in my memory, I somehow remember that this car was featured in a race called “MINI Mayham.” At that time, I was just 11 years old and didn’t have any idea how to get this car as it didn’t show up in the autoshow or among the DLC packs. Now, 8 years later, I discovered that this Mini could only be gifted by the developers.
Unfortunately, there was no auction house back in 2012, so for most players (including myself), it was impossible to get this car.
2. Lotus Exige Espionage
The Lotus Exige Espionage is a collaboration between Lotus and Gieves & Hawkes clothing company which, somehow, made its way to Forza Motorsport 2 as a unicorn car, meaning this car was gifted to players. This car is barely known by any Forza players due to its low popularity and the fact that it only appeared once. It never went into production and for that reason weren’t that relevant for the future titles.
1. Owen’s McLaren
The rarest car spotted in Forza until today is “Owen’s Mclaren” which roamed around in the open world of Horizon 4. Apart from the regular McLaren P1, this features rally customisation. No one expected this to appear in the game. It has equipped customisation such as rally suspension, a huge wing on the rear, extra lights and window stickers. But biggest mystery of all, who is Owen?
According to Playground Games, it was made for a “special visitor” and they also stated that window stickers are not coming. It gave false hopes among fans, but who knows what the future will bring. Basically, there’s only one person owning this car and it’s Owen himself.
