Description official descriptions

The third installment of the Forza Motorsport series now offers you over 400 cars from car manufacturers such as Lamborghini, Ferrari, Koenigsegg, McLaren and Pagani. All these cars have been rendered with ten times the number of polygons that were used in its predecessor.

The single player mode comes in the form of a racing calender that consists of several types of racing from basic drag and circuit races to more skillful drift events. These will take place on real life circuits that include the German Nürburgring (Nordschleife and F1 circuit), Silverstone in the UK, America's Luguna Seca and Japan's Suzuka circuit.

The game's multiplayer allows you to create your own race modes, based on eight pre-set variants that consist of a single race, timed race, point-to-point, drift, multi class, tag, cat & mouse and elimination.
