When looking back through video gaming's relatively short history, it baffles the mind to see how far they've progressed in such a small time-frame. It was only a few years ago when almost all the games looked pixelated, but now we have visual masterpieces like Forza Horizon 4.
Since Playground Games' creation of the Horizon series in 2012, they've become a huge part of the Forza industry; offering players a chance to escape the track and enjoy the open road. In comparison to the Forza Motorsport series, Horizon games are much more arcade-like, however, this doesn't stop them from having realistic physics and very fast cars. Forza Horizon 4 has an incredibly large selection of vehicles, some being old and slow, while others zip through the map. To find which cars are the best, here are Forza Horizon 4's fastest cars ranked.
10 Bugatti Chiron
As the Bugatti Veyron entered its end just a few years ago, Bugatti had already had its replacement lined up and ready. It wouldn't be a new Veyron or a super-sedan (As some speculated); instead Bugatti unveiled the Chiron.
In reality, the standard Chiron is slower than the Veryon Super Sport. Thankfully for video games, though, gamers can tune and modify the Chiron to be one of the quickest cars in the entire game. With a top speed of about 270 miles-per-hour, the Chiron will dust just about anything in its way.
9 Pagani Zonda Cinque
Next up on the list is an Italian supercar that's had a somewhat recent beginning. After starting in the '90s, the carmaker Pagani Automobili has turned themselves into a fierce competitor with their classic Zonda series and the newer Huayra models.
The only Zonda in Forza Horizon 4 is the exceedingly rare Pagani Zonda Cinque; of which only five were made. Since it is a video game, though, there's no limit to the number of Zonda Cinque's you can buy. Because of this, tuners have worked tirelessly to make the Cinque very fast, resulting in a top speed of 273 M.P.H.
8 Koenigsegg Agera (Upgrade Heroes)
Obviously, if you're talking about fast cars (Whether it's in a video game or reality) you can't go long without mentioning the Swedish beast of Koenigsegg. As such, fans of the manufacturer will be pleased to find a few Koenigsegg's in the Autoshow.
In Horizon 4 (If you're not already aware), certain vehicles have an option to upgrade with specific layouts and an improved exterior. The only Koenigsegg, in the game, with this choice is the standard Agera. If you do upgrade it, though, you'll be able to take the Agera to speeds of around 273.6 to 273.8 miles-per-hour.
7 Koenigsegg Agera RS
The normal Koenigsegg Agera isn't the only Koenigsegg in Forza Horizon 4's 'top-10 list;' quite the opposite, in fact. What ends up beating the regular Agera is its (Previously) world record-holding version: The Agera RS.
Unlike the Agera, the Agera RS is not in the normal game. Unfortunately, the RS version is a DLC vehicle; requiring extra cash to drive. However, players who spend the money will be rewarded with an even quicker version of the Agera, topping out at ~283 M.P.H. A whole ten M.P.H. faster!
6 Bugatti EB110 SS
If you're a Forza Horizon veteran, you may remember the first Horizon's fastest vehicle back in 2012: The Italian owned and designed Bugatti EB110 SS (Super Sport).
It seems Playground Games likes tradition, since the EB110 SS remains as one of the series' fastest cars, to-date. With the proper modifications and tuning setups, gamers can get the EB110 SS 283.5 miles-per-hour (Over 13 miles-per-hour better than the newest Bugatti).
5 McLaren F1
Fiction often mimics reality in more than a few ways, especially with video games like Forza. To be true to form, game designers need to make the in-game cars as fast as the real ones, leading to blindingly fast classics such as the McLaren F1.
During the McLaren F1's heyday, the British legend could go about 240 miles-per-hour all out. In game, however, the F1 is significantly quicker, as evidenced by the in-game F1's top-end of 286 miles-per-hour.
If only the real-life McLaren boys could have done this back in the '90s!
4 Koenigsegg CC8S
Once again, Koenigsegg makes a cameo in the list of Forza Horizon 4's fastest cars. This time, though, it isn't the Agera, or even the One:1. Instead, the honor goes to a relatively obscure Koenigsegg: The CC8S.
The CC8S is a special version of the base Koenigsegg CCX. What makes the CC8S special in Forza, though, is a combination of rarity and speed. Because the CC8S was added as seasonal content after launch, player can't buy the CC8S off the normal Autoshow. To own this car, you have to either wait for Playground Games to make it another seasonal reward or purchase off the Auction House.
If you manage to get your hands on one of these bad boys, you'll quickly see why they're so sought after. Capable of reaching a top speed of 286.6 M.P.H., the Koenigsegg CC8S is one of the scarcest and expensive vehicles in the game.
3 Jaguar D-Type
Now, this is where the cars start to become kind of crazy. Not just for their speed, but for the extreme modifications needed to make each of them as fast as they are. The first example of this can be seen with the old Jaguar D-Type.
Perhaps it is an issue with the game/a glitch (As some fans have suggested) that helps the D-Type dust so many newer cars. Regardless of the cause behind it, if drivers upgrade the D-Type correctly, the classic Jag will go over 297 M.P.H.; almost breaking the 300-barrier.
2 Mosler MT900S
Just like the Jaguar D-Type, the Mosler MT900S has almost nothing in common with the none-upgraded version, aside from appearances. To make the Mosler MT900S the (Once) quickest car in Horizon 4, you will need to swap almost everything.
The stock MT900S is not an impressive vehicle. It is, however, an amazing lightweight platform to build upon. Because of this, the Mosler MT900S (When swapped with a Lamborghini V12, stripped of extra weight, and made all-wheel drive) walks away from almost everyone else at 298.5 M.P.H., just under the 300-mark.
1 Ferrari 599XX Evolution
The car that would finally break Forza Horizon 4's illusive 300 M.P.H.-barrier wouldn't be a Koenigsegg, Bugatti, or weird classic. Rather, the honor would go to Ferrari and the 599XX Evolution; a car that (Like the CC8S) is available sparingly.
Gamers who are fortunate enough to either earn the car in an event or buy it off the Auction House will own Forza Horizon 4's fastest car. Compared to other cars on this list, the 599XX Evo east them all for breakfast! After reaching a top speed of 323 M.P.H., the 599XX Evolution secured its place as the quickest car available.
Who knows, we may see the 599XX Evolution usurped before Playground Games' next iteration of the Horizon-series.
