Here's our pick for the wide body cars you must collect in Forza Motorsport 8
Forza Motorsport 8‘s car leveling system may seem like a bit of a grind to build that connection with your car. Turn 10's latest update 1.0 helped a bit by unlocking upgrades at level 20, but the need for extra car points and levels can still be a downer.
With a somewhat underwhelming career mode, limited tracks, and matchmaking not considering safety ratings, the motivation to level up can be lacking. It's a head-scratcher why Turn 10 went with this approach. And it's a bummer that some wide body kit presets are flying under the radar.
Today we’ll be bringing something fresh – new body kit presets, exclusive to the new Forza Motorsport 8 entry.
The Best Wide Body Kit Cars
Here are some of the widebody kit cars that are available in the game right now:
Ferrari 488 Pista
Kicking things off, we've got the Ferrari 488 Pista, which is pretty cool. Ferrari usually isn't too keen on visual upgrades, but here we are with another wide body kit, this time for the 488 Pista, designed by Forza themselves.
It might not be the flashiest kit out there, but upon closer inspection, you'll notice the difference. There should be a proper race wing to go with it, but it seems there's a little bug to sort out there. It's a bit puzzling why the Ferrari 488 Pista's rear wing has an issue. Let's hope Turn 10 patches that up so we can see the full picture.
2024 BMW M5
The BMW M5 is a high-performance sports sedan that has been produced by BMW since 1984. It is based on the 5 Series platform and is powered by a high-performance engine. The M5 is known for its combination of luxury, performance, and handling.
The BMW M5 in Forza Motorsport 8 is missing its grilles and exhaust. This is likely a visual bug, as the car does have grilles and exhaust in real life. The interior of the M5 also appears to be bugged, as it is missing some textures and details.
It is unclear why these bugs are present in the game. It is possible that they were introduced in a recent update. It is also possible that they are simply the result of a mistake made by the developers.
Whatever the cause, these bugs are sure to be disappointing to fans of the BMW M5. The M5 is a popular car, and it is one that is expected to be represented accurately in a game like Forza Motorsport 8.
It is likely that these bugs will be fixed in a future update. However, until then, players will have to live with the fact that the BMW M5 in Forza Motorsport 8 is not quite perfect.
1999 Nissan Silvia S15 SpecR with KRC Japan Body Kit
The S15 has been a popular choice for tuners and drifters for many years, and the Rocket Bunny and KRC Japan body kits are two of the most popular aftermarket aero kits available for the car. These kits add a widebody look to the S15, making it even more aggressive and eye-catching.
The return of the S15 to Forza Motorsport is sure to be welcomed by fans of the car. The late 90s/early 2000s vibe of the design is still cool today, and the Rocket Bunny and KRC Japan body kits add a touch of modernity to the car.
With its combination of style, performance, and tuner appeal, the Nissan Silvia S15 is sure to be a popular choice in Forza Motorsport 8.
2023 Subaru WRX STI
The widebody kit for the WRX STI in Forza Motorsport 8 is one of the most aggressive and eye-catching aero kits available for the car. It adds massive fender flares, a new front bumper with splitter, side skirts, a rear diffuser, and a large rear wing.
The widebody kit makes the WRX STI look even more like a race car, and it is sure to be a popular choice for players who want to create the ultimate track car.
It is unclear why Turn 10 did not showcase the widebody kit before the game's launch. However, it is likely that they wanted to keep some of the game's content a secret until players had a chance to discover it for themselves.
The widebody kit for the WRX STI is a great addition to Forza Motorsport 8, and it is sure to be a popular choice for players who want to create the ultimate track car.
In Forza Motorsport 8, the Lexus RCF has two widebody kits available: the Rocket Bunny body kit and a Forza-designed body kit. The Rocket Bunny body kit is a familiar option for seasoned Forza players, as it has been featured in previous Forza games. The Forza-designed body kit is more seamless, with no bolt-ons.
Both body kits add a widebody look to the RCF, making it even more aggressive and eye-catching. The Rocket Bunny body kit is the more extreme of the two, with large fender flares, a new front bumper, side skirts, and a rear diffuser. The Forza-designed body kit is more subtle, with smaller fender flares and a more integrated front bumper.
The choice of body kit is ultimately up to the player. The Rocket Bunny body kit is a good choice for players who want a more aggressive look, while the Forza-designed body kit is a good choice for players who want a more subtle look.
Mercedes AMG GTR
The Mercedes AMG GTR is indeed a pleasant surprise with its seamless wide body kit. The way it integrates with the car's design, especially those front fenders that bulge outwards, gives it a distinct and unique appearance.
However, it's a bit puzzling that there might be a bug with the race rear wing. Perhaps Turn 10 had their reasons for that choice. Regardless, it's great to see these new customization options in the game, adding depth and variety to the vehicles
Audi R8 V10+
The Audi R8 V10+ is the final car in our lineup. Forza's subtle yet stylish design kit widens the body without any visible bolts, creating a refined look. It's a fantastic addition to the game, bringing fresh customization options we haven't seen in previous Forza titles.
Now, the Ford GT, a bit of an exclusive gem unlocked after completing the first builder's cup. Its Forza-designed wide body kit is intriguing, with a unique front widening that narrows towards the doors. The removal of the default numbers when applying the body kit provides a cleaner look.
2020 Nissan GTR NISMO
The 2020 Nissan GTR NISMO is an exciting addition of customization to the already cool 2017 Nissan GTR. It shares design similarities with the AMG GTR and Lexus RCF. Though it's a bit disappointing not to see the 2012 Nissan GTR with the full Liberty Walk body kit in the game.
Dodge Viper ACR
The Dodge Viper ACR features yet another Forza-designed body kit, and its unique design complements the car's shape beautifully, widening around the chassis while leaving the doors, pillars, and roof untouched.
