Forza Horizon 3 Garage Update Rolls In With Reliant Supervan & Ford Woodie

Forza-Horizon-3-03

This week’s garage update for Forza Horizon 3 takes on a bit of a different tone from the past 2 weeks. Showcase cars in previous weeks include some modern-era powerhouses and historic sports cars. This week however — the game is changed forever. Ferraris are lovely, and Aston Martins are prestigious, but this week a new entry into the garage roster makes all other competitors in the Horizon festival null and void. Say hello to the…

Reliant Supervan III

The Reliant Supervan III is a three-wheeled wonder best known by those in the UK for featuring in the hit BBC comedy ‘Only Fools and Horses’, in which the main characters used the car for doing some shady business. Del Boy and Rodney can vouch for the car’s usefulness, however we aren’t quite sure how it will stack up against the Aston Martin GT12.

Viewers of BBC’s Top Gear will also know that Jeremy Clarkson is a fan of the unique car’s smaller sibling — the Robin. Despite being most memorable for being continuously and purposely rolled, Clarkson felt a rare streak of guilt in a recent review:

“Rolling a Reliant Robin on purpose is a bit like putting a tortoise on its back. It’s an act of wanton cruelty.”

Please keep this in mind when you’re tempted to hoon this thing.

What can be assured is that this little custard-colored Reliant will be an absolute blast to drive off-road. The potential for Supervan events online are limitless: off-road outback challenges anyone?

Ford Super Deluxe Station Wagon (1946)

In Forza Horizon 3 there are a lot of cars built from a lot of different lightweight materials, used to make each vehicle as efficient and fast as possible. However, one material that has been criminally left out is wood. Not exactly synonymous with modern car design, the material usually finds it’s home in interiors at best. Fear no longer, woodie fans – the Ford Super Deluxe Station Wagon has you covered. The Deluxe Station Wagon must be one of the fastest bedside cabinets ever produced, packing 100BHP with a V8 engine to boot.

Style-wise, white wall tyres complete that 40s look and a holster on the roof mean you can store your surfboard safely on trips across Australia. This American icon’s hyperbolic name, unique looks and V8 mean you’re sure to turn heads when taking this for a spin. Just don’t expect to beat any Ferraris in a drag-race.

Usually, we get 3 showcase cars complete with renders but this time Playground have only supplied two. However, this week’s overall roster reveal is considerably larger, containing 64 cars you can expect to find at Horizon 3’s launch. The list is included at the bottom of this article.

It is this variety of cars and the environment that is helping Horizon 3 to potentially be one of the best digital automotive experiences this year. At E3 2016, Forza Horizon 3 swaggered away with the award for best racing game at the show. It picked up various other accolades from media outlets too, in what was a very successful debut showing. The awards continue to roll in for Playground Games, with FH3 picking up the best racing game award on show at Gamescom.

Forza Horizon 3 launches on Xbox One and PC September 27 2016.

    Countach and zagato where on my wish list, thank you t10. The Aston Martin v600 and the merc leadsled was beyond my dreams.

    Why hold back now. We just need the Audi s8(PLEASE), bmw i8, bmw grancoupe, 99 jaguar xk and the unforgettable ELEANOR!(pretty please)

    1. Harakudoshi

      Eleanor is in the game. Or at least, what the producers wanted you to think Elaenor was. ’71 Mach 1 Mustang. Can even get it in yellow and put smoothie wheels on it.

    I have bought an Xbox One just for Forza Motorsport 6 and I have already preordered Horizon 3 Deluxe. This game is a ton of fun, it’s the only one that reminds me of the free roaming Burnout Paradise back in the PS3/360 era.

    The Forza carlist just shows how much of a snooze fest “sim” carlists (like Assetto Corsa) have become.

    1. ralph89

      The gran turismo carlist just showed how much of a snoozer fest “sim-cade” carlist (like Forza) have become.

      See how ridiculous that sound is? I would rather take quality over quantity. At least in AC every car is unique to drive. Even with the same class of race car have different driving characteristic.

    2. imported_KingK76

      @ralph89 Butthurt much? And i would hope that your “sim-cade” comment was aimed at FH and not FM as the Motorsport series is every bit the “sim GT is. And besides he wasn’t even referencing GT, he was talking about AC. And it is your comment that “sounds ridiculous” not his “opinion”.

    3. ImaRobot

      Ralph89, oh you mean like in Forza? The cars are pretty top notch in the game you’re trying to knock lol. So the whole quality over quantity thing doesn’t hold much ground here.

    4. ralph89

      @imported_KingK76 Typical childish attack of saying “butthurt”. Am I not allowed to respond to his opinion? But for your satisfaction, no not really my trend follower friend, just stating facts and pointing out the difference between arcade racing game and hard core sim. And yes GT and forza are “sim/arcade” in comparison to hardcore driving/racing sim, it’s been proven fact for a long time, but a fun and good driving game indeed.

    5. ralph89

      @ImaRobot The graphics quality of Forza 5 and 6 are top notch indeed, no one can deny it, but we’re talking about car list and the overall quality here from physics, graphics, and tire model and from my experience AC car list has delivered all of it.

    6. ImaRobot

      So has Forza, on all three of those fronts. Assetto Corse has a deeper focus, and will obviously excel in those areas, but just because someone does something a bit better does not mean the others are just bad.

      AC will be great in those departments, no doubt, but Forza has nailed them as well, on a less serious front. There is individualism between cars, there is great graphics, great physics(not as focused as those aiming for physics above all else, but it is still very in-depth), and a more than decent tire model compared to others in its class.

      I get that the OP might have came off as a bit harsh, but what you’re trying to say isn’t exactly true either.
