From massive trucks to all-electric hypercars, these cars stand out as the coolest in Forza Horizon 4

Picking the ten coolest cars in Forza Horizon 4 is more difficult than you’d expect. There are almost 600 cars to choose from, and a lot of them bring something unique to the table.

From the quirky old-timers like the 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA Stradale to modern powerhouses like the 2019 Bugatti Divo, you can run through the entire gamut of available cars in Forza Horizon 4 and have difficulty picking 50 of the coolest cars, let alone just ten. But through sheer force of will, we were able to narrow down the list to just ten rides. These, as far as we’re concerned, are the ten coolest cars in Forza Horizon 4.

2017 Ford F-150 Raptor

You don’t need to convince me to include the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor in this list. The mighty truck may not look at home on Rodeo Drive, but it’s a ball of fun to drive. It boasts a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine that produces 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. Unlike some models in the game that offer loads of power but won’t let you tap into all of it, you won’t have any such problems maximizing the potential of the F-150 Raptor.

It’s incredible at launch, too, allowing you to get off the line faster than a lot of models in the game. It loses some of its pace against more powerful cars, but you can always use the F-150 Raptor’s heft to your advantage. Go off-road and the truck is at home in that element in ways very few cars in the game can match. Sure, driving the F-150 Raptor in Forza Horizon 4 doesn’t always equate to sure victory, but it’s still cool to see the truck match wits with more powerful models. A well-timed nudge in the rear-quarter panel of a rival car also doesn’t hurt your chances of winning in an F-150 Raptor.

2017 Hoonigan Gymkhana 10 Ford Fiesta ST

The 2017 Hooligan Gymkhana 10 Ford Fiesta ST might be Ken Block’s baby in the real world, but it can be yours in the world of Forza Horizon 4, provided that you were able to unlock it when it became available in the game.

To date, the Gymkhana 10 Fiesta ST has been available for unlocking in four seasons, most recently in the Series 20 Spring Season as a Seasonal Championship reward.

Once you acquire the Gymkhana 10 Fiesta ST, you can go to town with and have as much fun as you can handle. It even comes with the unmistakable Hooligan design as standard and the identical technical specifications of the M-Sport Fiesta. The latter includes a 1.6-liter turbocharged inline-four engine that produces 375 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque.

2011 Hot Wheels Bone Shaker

I’m not ashamed to admit it. I’ve used the 2011 Hot Wheels Bone Shaker in the game more times than I’ve used my garage full of Ferraris, Lamborghinis, and McLarens.

Bone Shaker is one of the coolest cars in Forza Horizon 4 for the same reasons why it’s one of the most iconic Hot Wheels cars in the toy company’s history. It helps that it’s powered by a 5.7-liter naturally aspirated V-8 engine that produces 402 horsepower and 398 pound-feet of torque.

Bone Shaker just doesn’t look cool; it can lay the smackdown on its opponents in the game, too.

Hell, if this Hot Wheels ride became popular enough to warrant a real-life build — Picture Car Warehouse took up that task in 2011 — then it more than justifies its place on this list.

1981 BMW M1

You can have your pick of the lot when it comes to BMW models that are available in Forza Horizon 4. But the one BMW that made this list also happens to be the coolest model — in my mind, at least — BMW has ever built: the 1981 BMW M1. I know. I get star-crossed when it comes to OG M1. I can’t help it. I think it’s the most beautiful car BMW has ever built.

Sure, it’s not the most powerful — the M1 is powered by a 3.4-liter naturally aspirated inline-six engine that produces “just” 277 horsepower and 243 pound-feet of torque. But here’s the truth: when I drive the M1 in Horizon 4, I know I’m probably not winning a lot of races. I might not even place high after the race. But that doesn’t matter. When I drive the M1, I know I’m the coolest cat in the game.

1963 Shelby Monaco King Cobra

Very few cars in history carry the kind of legacy that the 1963 Shelby Monaco King Cobra carries. Built by Carroll Shelby to race in the first year of the United States Road Racing Championship (USRRC), the King Cobra was as dominant as you’d expect it to be, claiming race victories for the Shelby America racing team.

The model is also regarded as the precursor to the mighty Ford GT40 that went on to win four straight Le Mans 24 Hours titles.

There aren’t that many King Cobras in existence today, and one of the two original models fetched $1.65 million at a Barrett-Jackson auction six years ago. Imagine the kind of price tag it’s going to carry today. Obviously, I can’t afford to buy it if it does end up on the auction block again, so what’s the next best thing to that? Owning it in Horizon 4, of course! Fortunately, it’s not that difficult to acquire the King Cobra in the game as it was included in the Barrett-Jackson Car Pack that was launched in April 2019.

2016 W Motors Lykan Hypersport

W Motors’ Lykan Hypersport is the kind of car that’s way beyond most people’s price range. At $3.4 million, it’s more expensive than the Bugatti Chiron and the Koenigsegg Agera RS, considered as two of the fastest production cars in the world.

So why is it that the Lykan Hypersport is more expensive than the two hypercar titans? You can start with its exclusivity. Only seven models were built, which explains why everyone threw a fit — never mind the fact that it was a prop car — after watching Vin Diesel jump from one building to another while driving a Hypersport. In addition to the limited production run, the Hypersport is unlike any other car in the world with regards to the things that you’ll see in the car. Do the titanium blades within the headlights excite you? Speaking of the headlights, did you notice that they’re encrusted with diamonds and jewels? These are the things that you’ll see in the Lykan HyperSport that you won’t see in just about every other car in the world. Now, imagine if you could own one without having to pay $3.4 million for it. That’s why the Lykan HyperSport is one of the coolest cars in Forza Horizon 4.

1977 Lamborghini Jarama S

How’s this for a car that you don’t see often. Forza Horizon 4 is chock-full of exotics and rare performance cars. Lamborghinis are a part of this mix, and there’s no shortage of Raging Bull models. One of these Lambos is the Jarama, which, ironically, is only available in Forza Horizon 4.

It’s not your typical standard-issue Lamborghini since you can only receive the Jarama S through the {Car Pass} since January 2019.

Its combination of sleek design, mesmerizing presence, and powerful 3.9-liter V-12 engine that produces 365 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque made the Jarama S one of the icons of its generation. It certainly is one in the game.

1972 Reliant Supervan III

We all know about the Reliant Robin from its memorable segment with Jeremy Clarkson on Top Gear. But what most of us don’t remember — or don’t even know, to begin with — is before there was the Robin, there was the Supervan III.

Cute, weird, cheap, and bizarre all rolled into one, the Reliant Supervan III is one of those cars in {Forza Horizon 4} that you drive for the sake of driving it.

What the Supervan III lacks in punch, it makes up for in fun. You can even add training wheels at the front to go with a Wide Kit Upgrade to improve its handling. That is if you’re looking for such things out of a three-wheeler whose 0.7-liter inline-four engine produces a paltry 32 horsepower and 38 pound-feet of torque. Nobody said the Supervan III was going to light up the roads, but it can light up your mood in the game.

2018 Top Gear Track-Tor

Without a hint of exaggeration, the Top Gear Track-Tor is one of the most fun cars you’ll get to drive in {Forza Horizon 4}.

From the Lamborghini-style orange paint to the 500-horsepower Chevrolet V-8 engine powering it, the Track-Tor was created to beat the record as the fastest tractor in the world, making it completely at home in the fast-paced world of Forza Horizon 4. Acquiring the Track-Tor is no easy feat, though. You’ll need to complete Tier 5 in The Top Gear Horizon Special Horizon Story. The Track-Tor is all fun to drive in the game. It’s flashy and intimidating at the same time, and it accelerates like nobody’s business. Unfortunately, the Track-Tor is one of just two cars that you can’t use in Online Adventure mode. The other one? The Hot Wheels Bone Shaker. I wonder why.

2019 Rimac Concept Two

All-electric hypercars still aren’t out on the road in the real world, but just because that’s the case, that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy our spoils in the digital world of Forza Horizon 4. The Rimac Concept Two is a 1,914-horsepower, game-changing, all-electric hypercar that’s capable of performance figures that no car in history can replicate. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 1.85 seconds and hit 0 to 186 mph in 11.8 seconds.

The Concept Two first appeared in {Horizon 4} as part of the game’s Update Ten release.

It was made available as a “hard-to-find” car that can be rewarded from a Festival Playlist. Since then, the Concept Two has also appeared as a reward at the Forzathon Shop, most recently during Series 21. There are a precious few cars in Forza Horizon 4 that can compete with the Rimac Concept Two.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
