New Batch of Forza Horizon 3 Cars, From the Classics to the Modern Age
A new batch of Forza Horizon 3 cars has been released online, showing off dozens of other cars that we’ll be able to drive once the game comes out on September 27. The cars range in date from around the second half of the 20th century to top-of-the-line cars.
These cars go from the 1951 Holden 50-2106 FX Ute to the 2016 Holden Special Vehicles GTS Maloo. All of them will be a part of the hundreds of cars that will be available to use in the full game. The previous Forza Horizon game featured over 200 cars, 150 less than the 350 that will be available to play at launch.

The Forza Horizon 3 cars are also heavily Australian, as Forza Horizon 3 will be taking place in Australia, allowing players to drive through the Australian outback and along the coastal roads. Holden, the company that has made the oldest and newest cars in the new list, is an Australian automotive company. Originally it was founded in 1856 as a saddle manufacturer.
The GTS Maloo will likely be the last of the ute (utility) cars that Holden makes, so this may be the last time we’ll see one on a game like Forza.
But among all of these historically Australian Forza Horizon 3 cars is one that likely holds a special place in the hearts of many older Australians: the 1974 “Sandman” HQ panel van, used as both a camping vehicle and a utility vehicle.
It’s not easy to build up such a large group of Forza Horizon 3 cars. Ralph Fulton, the creative director of Playground Games (one of the studios working on the game) says that some cars are more difficult to research than others, it was essential that the game capture the authenticity and feel of the Australian Holden cars. He also says that it’s an effort to make you feel like you’re actually in Australia, in its long coastlines, its wide-open outback, and its unique car scene.
