So yeah, apparently this is it. I'm not sure how I feel about it but it looks like fun.
Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels takes players to six new themed islands located off the coast of Australia; all connected by a network of Hot Wheels tracks – positioned hundreds of feet in the air – featuring classic Hot Wheels configurations like loops, corkscrews, and more. This is stunt driving at its most extreme, where you can master tracks by performing brand new Hot Wheels skills that make use of boost pads, high-bank turns, half-pipes, insane jumps, and even giant mechanical dinosaurs. If you’re looking to get creative, check out the new Stunt Swap feature to modify stunt track sections and dare your friends to try them.

Along the way you’ll earn 28 new Xbox Live achievements worth 500 Gamerscore.

I've moved all the relevant posts to their own thread. 👍
I'm... really not sure how to respond to this. It looks like a bunch of fun, but any talk from T10 and PG about FH3 being a semi-sim can be thrown out the window now, especially to casual onlookers.
On the other hand, this really does play to the talk of wanting to tie together all automotive enthusiasts. Who doesn't love Hot Wheels?!
I really hope that the continued embracing of the more out-there arcade stuff in Horizon means FM7 will move further into sim territory.
