Forza Motorsport returns to racing on a track, ditching the open-world format of previous games. Cars are classified into separate categories to ensure fair competition.
The top-of-the-line P and X classes feature the fastest cars, including World Endurance Championship and Formula 1 racing cars capable of the fastest lap times.
Featured cars, such as the Toyota TS040 Hybrid, Ginetta G60-LT-P1, Porsche 919 Hybrid, Ferrari 641 and McLaren MP4/4, have outstanding performance and high marks for handling, acceleration and braking.
Forza Motorsport ditches the open-world formula of previous entries and returns players to track racing events that feature a variety of iconic tracks. While speed isn’t everything when it comes to winning races, it’s certainly still important, and as a result cars are classified into separate categories to ensure the races are kept fair. The fastest cars can be found at the top end of the P and X classes, which include racing cars from both the World Endurance Championship and Formula 1.
Although each of these cars can easily exceed 200 mph at top speed, few tracks will give them the opportunity to do so. Other factors, such as how quickly the car can approach and turn corners, contribute to reducing the overall lap time. Track for track, these cars are capable of the fastest possible lap times around any track and few other cars can match them.
