Over the weekend I max’d out my Ferrari affinity, so it’s time to move on to a new car. The F355 was a fun companion for a few weeks but I’m eager to try something new. Here’s what I’m looking for:
Class: Stock A Manufacturer: No Honda, No Ferrari, No Ford Drive: Any
Give me something that’s easy to drive and great to photograph and I’ll be eternally grateful. If you can suggest a paint (by Gamertag) and tune (also by Gamertag) to go along with your car of choice, even better.
Tell me what you think I should drive and I’ll award my favorite responses with something cool in Forza 5.
In A class nothing beats the feeling of driving the LFA. At high speeds you get active aero working to plant the tires to the ground and at low speeds car maneuvers sharply with its hidden wing. Try it out and feel the changes in aero.
The 2012 Aston Martin Vanquish is definitely one of the most beautiful cars I have ever driven on Forza 5. I’m sure you’ll be familiar as the one car James May drove in one episode of Top Gear! I love this car so much, I think this can be your sure-to-be-favorite, Mechberg! Try it!
I’d recommend the TVR Sagaris. Sure it’s an absolute beast, but that’s what makes it fun. It’s an exercise in translating raw power to tarmac via a thin strip of rubber, and the results are somewhat epic, if a little hard to contain. You’ll never celebrate so hard for sheerly making it out of a corner in one piece! Oh, and it’s pretty too, for all those photos you might want to take.
Of course, if you want one that’s already been trained to keep its nose pointing forward (most of the time) I have a tune shared for it.
I’m going to have to nominate the Merc SL 65 AMG Black again. I just think it’s truly a great car. It’s one helluva beast to handle, but it’s such a joy when you get a hold of it. Plus, there’s not a lot of others out there that can match the torque of it.
Everything about it is great. It sounds insane - as if it is trying to hurt you. Despite this, it’s easy to control and get the hang of. High power, lower torque, active aero - and so it handles great.
Give it an exotic colour (like green, or something bright) or just turn up the contrast in photo mode and it fits in really well into any picture. Maybe black rims too, for the added bit of intimidation for your opponents.
And trust me - you won’t get bored driving this. It’s an extremely fun car
Maserati MC12–one of the best handling A-class cars you’ll ever drive, and it’s a beast off the line. And I think it’s one of the most beautiful cars out there. I’m just an average tuner, but I like to tune all my own cars. You’re welcome to mine, but it’s likely you can find a better one. I’m not a very good painter, so you’re on your own there.
I would recommend the Dodge Viper ACR in your next run to maximum affinity. Considering it has already got adjustable aerodynamics, large front and rear tyres and an 8.4L V10 pushing 600hp, keeping this thing on the track with pace couldn’t be more fun. As it is a brilliant car to keep in A-class myself, this car has heaps of potential in higher car classes where the competition becomes more fierce. The viper is a true American track car with more than enough potential to obliterate leaderboard times, especially on Prague as it both carries the trait of high speed and cornering capabilities and mashes them into one, affordable package.
