Are you an aspiring gearhead ready to set the fastest lap times in Forza Motorsport 7? Find out the 10 fastest cars that can help to do exactly that
No matter how much you enjoy realistic and challenging racing games, we all want to floor the gas pedal sometimes. In Forza Motorsport, the fastest cars make you feel like you're flying on the road. We've gathered and ranked the top 10 speedsters for you.
In Forza, cars are rated in four categories: handling, braking, acceleration, and speed. Handling and braking affect control, while acceleration and speed determine max speed and how quickly you get there. The highest rating is 10.
Today, we're focusing on speed. We'll rank the 10 fastest cars based on their speed ratings, with acceleration as a tie-breaker when needed.
Only four cars in Forza hit the maximum speed rating. They're from Koenigsegg and Bugatti. The slowest car in the top 10 has a 9.0 speed rating, which is still super fast compared to most, but there's a 10 percent drop-off from the fastest one.
Ferrari and McLaren each have two cars in the top 10. The list also includes a Rimac and an Ultima. Ultima's only car in Forza makes the top 10.
That's the quick rundown, but you probably want to see these speed demons for yourself. Check out the fastest cars in Forza Motorsport!
Top 10 Fastest Cars
We’ve compiled a list of the fastest cars in the game. This list focuses on top speed, which means that we will be looking at their speed rating primarily!
2019 Bugatti Divo
In Forza Motorsport, the Bugatti Divo has the best overall rating for both speed and acceleration. This is why Bugatti is renowned for its speed. The Chiron narrowly loses to the Bugatti Divo for the title of fastest car in Forza Motorsport. The Divo has a slight advantage due to its 0.1 acceleration rating, which technically makes it the fastest car in the game.
A track-oriented version of the Bugatti Chiron is the Bugatti Divo. The same 8.0L quad-turbocharged W16 engine that powers the Chiron also powers this vehicle, but it has been tuned to produce 1,479 horsepower. The Divo also has a number of aerodynamic upgrades that make it easier for it to corner and produce more downforce.
2018 Bugatti Chiron
One of the priciest and most exclusive vehicles in the world is the Bugatti Chiron. It has an 8.0L, 4-turbocharged W16 engine with 1,479 horsepower. The Chiron can travel at a top speed of 261 mph. The top 10 most expensive cars in Forza Motorsport aren't Bugattis, despite their incredible speed.
As we've already mentioned, the Chiron is No. 2 on a technicality. If you prefer the design of the Chiron over the Divo, don't fool yourself into thinking that you are sacrificing performance by choosing it. It feels just as quick in-game as the Divo.
2020 Koenigsegg Jesko
The fastest and most expensive car in Forza Motorsport is the Koenigsegg Jesko. With a top speed of 292 mph, the Koenigsegg Jesko is another one of the fastest vehicles in Forza Motorsport 7. It is powered by a 5.0L twin-turbocharged V8 engine with 1,578 horsepower. The Jesko has a number of aerodynamic improvements that contribute to its astonishing top speed.
The fact that Koenigsegg is a high-end manufacturer is evident in Forza Motorsport. Only Koenigsegg has two vehicles among the top 10 fastest in Forza Motorsport. You can safely say that you're getting premium performance at a premium price because the Jesko is also the priciest vehicle in the entire game.
2017 Koenigsegg Agera RS
The Agera RS, another impressive creation by Koenigsegg, closely rivals the Jesko in both speed and acceleration. You'll find that it offers a compelling alternative within the Koenigsegg lineup. Good for those who can't afford a Jesko can look at this machine.
However, it's important to note that the cost savings are primarily associated with differences in braking and handling, not speed and acceleration. In terms of pure speed and acceleration performance, the Agera RS stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the Jesko.
2013 McLaren P1
It's impossible not to be in awe of the McLaren P1's sleek design sweeping lines. The McLaren P1 might not quite match the numbers of the cars ranked higher in the list. However, its captivating design is so irresistible that we're more than willing to trade a bit of top speed just for the opportunity to cruise around in this beauty, even if it's only in a virtual world.
2021 Rimac Nevera
The Rimac Nevera is a car with a unique character in this lineup, as it can achieve impressive top speeds but lacks initial acceleration. This can limit its potential on most tracks. Furthermore, the car's subpar acceleration isn't compensated for by its braking and handling capabilities, which are among the lowest in this list.
The Rimac Nevera also holds the position of being the third most expensive vehicle on this list. While it's not to say that the Rimac Nevera is a poor choice, it's essential to recognize that acquiring it should not be solely based on expectations of its eventual top speed.
2017 Ferrari 812 Superfast
There's a unique satisfaction when a product lives up to its name, and the Ferrari 812 Superfast certainly doesn't disappoint. While we came close to completing this list of the fastest cars without mentioning a Ferrari, the 812 Superfast emerges as a notable exception.
Although it might not be the absolute best Ferrari on the list, it undeniably lives up to its name by offering high-speed performance. Additionally, it provides a commendable level of acceleration that enthusiasts would appreciate.
1993 McLaren F1
The McLaren F1 stands as a testament that age doesn't diminish performance. In a list primarily filled with latest models, the 1993 McLaren F1 is an exception, showing that the year it was born is just a number. It does have the lowest baseline for braking and handling and the second-worst acceleration among these speedsters.
But one good thing is that it also comes with a notably more budget-friendly price tag. So, even though it's a bit of an older dog in the race, it still has some bark left in it.
2015 Ultima Evolution Coupe 1020
The design of the Ultima is a bit of an acquired taste. Although there's only one Ultima in Forza Motorsport, it's a vehicle that leaves a lasting impression. The Evolution Coupe 1020's design might not immediately appeal to everyone, but if you can look past it, you'll discover that it offers excellent value for your investment.
2020 Ferrari SF90 Stradale
If the Ultima's design seems too excessive for your taste, you have an alternative in the timeless classics category. As promised, here's another Ferrari in the mix. The SF90 Stradale may not quite match the top speed of the Superfast but it compensates for this minor deficit with a significant advantage in acceleration.
In practical terms, despite its lower theoretical top speed, the Stradale feels faster on the track, which justifies its higher price tag compared to the 812 Superfast.
So here were our top 10 fastest cars in the Forza Motorsport 7 franchise. Pick any one of them and go burn some rubber on the long straits of Circuit De La Sarthe!
