The Sunoco 917/30 would be a good fit for FH5 as well. The /30 was the final evolution of the 917 and is often credited for “killing” the Can-Am sports car series. The monstrous flat-12 produced 1100 PS in race trim, and up to 1600 during qualifying. The Chevrolet-engined McLarens that had previously dominated the series, were simply no match. It only raced during the 1973 season and was effectively outlawed with fuel consumption regulations for next year. The 917/30 is widely considered to be the most powerful racing sports car ever made and definitely made its mark on the racing world, despite only racing for a year. This monster would be incredible to drive in Forza, especially given modern tires and handling-focused upgrades.

Is there a way to put the 917 k on another topic because they always give us the other models but never the most famous one which is 917 K from 1970. I really love the car and I believe it needs to be in the game.

This is a pure piece of art.

would love to see the 917/20 and 917/30 make their way to FM, iconic cars that go overshadowed far too often, similarly to the 956 which was strangely absent from forza games until recently. please show some love to these racers!

It would be cool to have both of these versions of the 917, the Red and white striped 917k for Le Mans and the RC Cola sponsored 917/10 for Can-Am. Both monstrous prototypes of the 70s.
