Forza Motorsport offers over 500 cars to its players and choosing the right vehicle from different classes can be confusing. From the 1973 BMW 2002 Turbo to The Porsche Team 919 Hybrid, these are the best cars in Forza Motorsport in every class.

Forza Motorsport is all about giving your best on the track and bagging first place in races. To do so seamlessly, you’ll naturally need a great car that complements your skills, and there’s an abundance of great options in every class. As a result, even picking starter cars can take time and compel you to rack your brain. 

Forza Motorsport already has over 500 cars and the developers are planning to add more through frequent updates. Knowing about the best vehicles in every class can certainly give you a major advantage over the opponents.

On that note, here are all the best cars in Forza Motorsport based on the class.

Speed isn’t the only denominator when it comes to picking the best car in Forza Motorsport.

Forza Motorsport best Class E cars

1973 BMW 2002 Turbo

The 1973 BMW 2002 Turbo is the best car in Forza Motorsport Class E, followed by the 1968 Ford Mustang GT 2+2 Fastback. It is one of the most expensive cars in the class. Being an expensive car, it’d naturally be the best. A fine balance between speed, acceleration, and handling, makes it a top pick for the class.

Class E is the least meaty class in Forza Motorsport, no flattering cars to pick and everything is pretty basic. Nonetheless, if you’re looking for other cars in this class, here are some to look out for:

  • 1968 Ford Mustang GT 2+2 Fastback – Fastest Class E car with a speed rating of 3.0.
  • 1993 Renault Clio Williams – Cheapest and has the best handling and braking, although not the fastest.
  • 1977 Holden Torana A9X – Good overall pick and has the fastest acceleration.

Forza Motorsport best Class D cars

1994 Nissan Fairlady Z Version S Twin Turbo

The 1994 Nissan Fairlady Z has the best overall performance in Class D.

Class D has decent cars, but the 1994 Nissan Fairlady Z Version S Twin Turbo is a cut above others. It is the second cheapest among the top performing, but don’t let the price fool you here, as the Nissan Fairlady has the fastest speed and acceleration and isn’t as far behind others in handling. 

1990 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16 Evolution II

The 1990 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16 Evolution II is our second-best pick for the best Class D cars in Forza Motorsport. It is not cheap by any means, but it sure is bang for your buck given its excellent braking and handling stats. The 1990 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16 Evolution II has a handling rating of 2.8; the only other car that comes close in this class is the Nissan Fairlady with 2.2. 

Some other cars in Class D to look out for:

  • 2000 Nissan Silvia Spec-R: Cheapest and has nice overall stats.
  • 1984 Peugeot 205 Turbo 16: Low speed but has the best acceleration and good handling.

Forza Motorsport best Class C cars

1990 Vauxhall Lotus Carlton

It’s rare for the fastest car to be the best in Forza Motorsport or other sim racers, but it holds true for Class C. The 1990 Vauxhall Lotus Carlton is rapid, with a 4.8 speed rating; the second fastest in the class stands at 4.2. You’ll struggle more in corners with the Vauxhall, but it isn’t unbearable, and you should be able to keep it in check.

939 Auto Union Type D2002 Chevrolet Camaro 35th Anniversary Super Sport

The 2002 Chevrolet is the second-best car in Class C of Forza Motorsport. It is only a touch below the Vauxhall in terms of speed and acceleration and has manageable handling. Although you’ll still struggle a bit with turns, there’s nothing too difficult here.

Other cars to look at in Class C of Forza Motorsport

  • 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X GSR: An excellent overall pick with amazing handling and solid acceleration. 
  • Other Mitsubishis with similar stats in the Class are good too. Notably, VI GSR and MR. 

Forza Motorsport best Class B cars

2023 Lotus Emira

The Lotus Emira has a speed rating of 4.6 and a score of 3.7 on everything else.

The 2023 Lotus Emira is the best overall car in Forza Motorsport Class B. It has solid handling and braking and does fare well in terms of speed—not the fastest, but there are cars much slower than the Lotus in Class C. 

2002 Chevrolet Corvette Z06

The 2002 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is another great pick in Class B. It is fast with a speed rating of 6.0, which is 1.4 higher than our best pick, the Lotus Emira, but it falls short in handling and other stats. However, it is still manageable and not any worse than other options. 

Other cars in Class B of Forza Motorsport: 

  • 1939 Auto Union Type D: It has a speed rating of 6.2, making it pretty fast and is just a touch below the Chevrolet for handling. 
  • 1961 Maserati Tipo 61 Birdcage: Excellent acceleration and handling, but leaves a lot to be desired elsewhere. Nonetheless, it is fairly good. 

Forza Motorsport best Class A cars

1993 Jaguar XJ220

If you have a premium edition of Forza Motorsport, the available assortment of cars that comes with it should be good enough to hold on their own. However, if you need to pick from the base game, the 1992 Jaguar remains the best option. 

The Jaguar has a speed rating of 7.0 and comes with excellent acceleration. Although handling may not be as impressive as other options, there is nothing to worry about. 

1992 Bugatti EB110 Super Sport

The 1993 Bugatti is billed similarly to the Jaguar: high on speed and a little underwhelming on everything else. It is faster than the Jaguar by 0.6 but doesn’t hold up in other areas. Nonetheless, it’s an excellent pick at this level. 

Other cars in Class A of Forza Motorsport to look for: 

  • 1987 Ferrari F40: It has better handling and acceleration than Jaguar, so it is a good overall pick. Looks nice as well. 
  • 2017 Mercedes-Benz #33 Mac Tools Ciceley Motorsports: Low on speed but excellent handling, making it a perfect choice for nailing those corners. 

Forza Motorsport best Class S cars

1981 Ford #2 Zakspeed Racing Capri Turbo

The 1981 Ford #2 is perhaps the best pick of the bunch because it allows you to boss those Apexs. It has an amazing handling and brake rating of 6.5 and isn’t far behind others in terms of speed as well. You absolutely cannot go wrong with the 1981 Ford #2. 

1998 Nissan R390 (GT1)

The 1998 Nissan R390 is rapid with a 7.2 speed rating and has very good handling. You’re not just hurtling your way through the tracks, you will also do fairly well in those corners with the Nissan. 

Other Class S cars to look for in Forza Motorsport: 

  • 1963 Shelby Monaco King Cobra: Great overall pick with a 5.7 handling rating and 6.6 acceleration.
  • 1969 Lola #6 Sunoco T70 MkIIIB: It is billed similarly to Shelby, making it a good pick. Honestly, it is a toss-up between these; go with your personal favorite. 

Forza Motorsport’s best Class R cars

2015 Radical RXC Turbo

The 2015 Radical RXC Turbo isn’t just the best car in the Class R but also one of the best wheels to drive in all of Forza Motorsport. But be ready to cough out tons of money, as it costs a whopping 407,000. The RXC Turbo isn’t for speed freaks, as others can hurtle twice as fast, but this thing flits and does well in the corners, making it a top-tier pick.  

2021 Rimac Nevera

The Rimac Nivera is one of the most expensive cars in Forza Motorsport.

At a breakneck rating of 9.4 speed, the 2021 Rimax Nevra is one of the fastest cars in Forza Motorsport. Of course, like every other in the list, speed means less agility and the Rimac has a 4.0 rating in handling, which is 3.3 less than our best pick. 

Other Forza Motorsport Class R cars to look for in Forza Motorsport: 

  • Aston Martin Vulcan AMR Pro: Aston Martin specs the same as the RXC Turbo—heavy on agility with decent speed. In fact, it has 0.2 more handling than the RXC. So, if you like Aston Martin, this is a good choice. 
  • 1976 Lotus #5 Team Lotus 77: Best handling among the top available choices but the slowest among the best. On certain tracks, it is a better pick. 

Forza Motorsport best Class P cars

The second-highest-rated class in Forza Motorsport, while you can’t go wrong with most of the wheels here, some are a cut above the others. 

2014 Toyota #8 Toyota Racing TS040 Hybrid

With a perfect handling of 10.0, there is no better pick in Class P than this. Plenty of cars in Class P do come near 10.0 handling, like the Audi R18, but most of them don’t quite match the speed of the TS040. 

The Toyota isn’t as expensive, and while 380,000 is still not a modest sum, it is relatively cheap compared to other cars in the class. Especially when you consider that most Class R cars are roundabout the same price or higher. 

2014 Audi Team Joest R18 e-tron quattro

Another excellent pick for a Class P car in Forza Motorsport. It has a perfect 10.0 in handling, braking, and acceleration, so you’ll have every chance to nail each corner. It may take a little time to catch up with others though, as the speed is billed at just 6.3. 

Other cars in Class P of Forza Motorsport to look to: 

  • 1992 Toyota #99 All American Racers Toyota Eagle Mk III: Another excellent pick if you want some more Toyota. It has the same PI, 981, as TS040. 
  • 1987 Porsche #17 Porsche AG 962C: A good overall pick that fares well against others and has a slightly higher speed than others in this list. 

Forza Motorsport best Class X cars

The Porsche Team 919 Hybrid is the best car in Class X in Forza Motorsport, but choices here are largely based on preference as there are only three. The Porsche is a tad bit slicker in terms of handling than the other two. You’ll have to choose between these three:

  • 1990 Ferrari #1 Scuderia Ferrari 641
  • 1988 McLaren #2 Honda McLaren MP4/4
  • 2017 Porsche #2 Porsche Team 919 Hybrid
