    Looks way more hardcore than any other GT3 racer. With that rear wing, very reminisent of the Senna, in my opinion. Now all we need is an Ueno Clinic or Gulf/Davidoff livery.

    I believe that we will definitely see this in a future update.

    Put this in GTS please. Hope it handles great, the 650s seems too loose for me or throttle sensitive in GTS back end always wants to get loose.

    Speaking of future update, I don't see any news for car teaser until now, meanwhile next week is September.

    Wouldn't be surprised if we saw this car in Forza Horizon 4,the cover cars of the game is the new Mclaren Senna

    Since this is an ongoing project, with racing being the main ingredient, hopefully we will see the newer GT3 race cars for the GR.3 class in the game, for the start of the 2018 season at the very least. Especially if PD want to keep the competitive online aspect appealing.

    Looks almost like a Longtail. Any word on how much power the car makes? It's most definitely gonna be nerfed from the road going 720S.

    Isn't Forza Horizon 4 just for road cars only, though? I don't know, the last one I played was FH2 when I had my 360.

    I don’t think we will see modern GT racers in FH4. They were in FH3 but felt very misplaced there IMO.

    Expect it to make less than the road car due to the restrictor. So we're looking at the 500-550hp range.

    I was assuming 550. I wasn't expecting it to make more than 600 horsepower.

    Are they gonna retire the 650S next year? It's definitely been one of my favorite modern gt3 cars

    The game will include the Blancpain GT Series 2019 season for free, so it's quite likely.

    Man, if only there was a place to baselessly speculate and slowchat about PD's latest videogame.

    Now that's a beautiful race car :bowdown::tup:

    From the side looks like they went with the senna rear end with spoiler.

    I don't think it's out of place,Forza Horizon is a car collection game since the first one,there are Racing Trucks in FH4 for christs sake :lol:

    I know a site that is dedicated for PD's videogame franchise it's called GranTurismoplanet.com ...........wait :odd:

    I guess I'm the only one who likes a lot more the 650S GT3.

    It’ll be sad to see it go, it’s probably the prettiest GT3 out of all of them

    That's what it started as, sure. A quick look at the front page should make it pretty apparent that's not the sole focus anymore. It's also why Forza Planet was rolled back into this one...

    ...

    I really, really like the look of this. I've seen a handful of the road cars over the summer 'round here, and while it's definitely grown on me since first seeing it at E3 last year, this works so well. The road car, like a lot of modern metal, needs to be seen in the wild, on the move. It isn't quite i8 levels of futurism — and it's very sensitive to colour — but it's close.

    But the 650S is my second favorite looking car, the 720S just don't like it.

    Now McLaren needs to pull a 2016 BMW and make this also a GTE car
