Forza Motorsport 3 To Feature SUVs And Luxo-Barges


THE OCTOBER DEBUT of Forza Motorsport 3 for the XBOX 360 is drawing nearer, and this week comes the news that the game will feature not only a bevy of super and sports cars, but a range of SUVs and luxury sedans as well.

Publisher Turn 10 describes the selection as ‘Sport Luxury SUVs’ and ‘Sport Luxury Sedans and Coupes’, meaning we probably won’t see the Hyundai Santa Fe or the Toyota Prado, but the selection ought to be an appealing one (if you get sick of the range of true supercars on offer).


Turn 10 says that while SUVs and big luxury sedans aren’t known for their light weight and epic handling, the sheer muscle power of the cars listed below more than makes up for it, representing the publisher’s love for cars of all shapes and sizes.

In the Sport Luxury SUV category:

  • 2009 BMW X5 4.8i
  • 2008 Land Rover Range Rover Sport
  • 2009 Audi Q7 V12 TDI
  • 2009 Mercedes ML63 AMG
  • 2008 Volkswagen Touareg R50 (pictured above)

In the Sport Luxury Sedan & Coupe category:

  • 2009 BMW M5 E60
  • 2009 Jaguar XKR-S
  • 2009 Mercedes SL65 AMG Black Series
  • 2009 Cadillac CTS-V
  • 2008 Chrysler 300C SRT-8
  • 2009 Pontiac G8 GXP


Aussie gamers will of course be pleased to see the inclusion of the Pontiac G8 GXP, derived from Holden’s own Commodore SS, giving locals another opportunity to pit a homegrown hero against the best the world has to offer.
