Week Four Of Car Reveals For Forza Horizon 3

By Andy Mills, 2 months ago
It's a new week and a new set of cars has been revealed for the upcoming Forza Horizon 3. If you've not seen the previous reveals, feel free to check out what you've missed. This week, the focus is away from the road with three vehicles built to go off the beaten path, a necessity for traversing the Outback.

1971 Meyers Manx

Bruce Meyers created the Meyers Manx when he was living in a shed and building boats out of a then relatively new material called fiberglass. The shape of the Manx created an allure that spoke to those in search of freedom and fun. It was copied by many companies seeking to profit from Meyers’ design, but none have matched the style and form of the original. The lightweight chassis fitted with a Volkswagen engine and suspension found its way into many record books in the desert, hill climb racing and even drag racing. Whether you are putting the Manx through its paces or just cruising around enjoying the open-air ride, there’s nothing else like this original dune buggy.
2011 Penhall Cholla

In the desert, the Cholla is the meanest cactus around with its needle-like spines partially enclosed in a papery sheath. In the buggy world, Penhall’s Cholla is one mean mother as well and ready to destroy the competition when it comes to sucking up bumps and flying across rough terrain. When the Cholla debuted at the Baja 1000 in 2011, it won Class 10 by four hours – that’s a margin that doesn’t even leave its dust to be eaten. With more than 20 inches of wheel travel in the front and back, punishing environments will feel silky smooth and the hugest jumps will be absorbed with a smooth landing. Buggies are a staple for the Outback and the Cholla is without a doubt one of the best in the business.
1979 Toyota FJ40

Among iconic SUVs, the FJ40 deserves its place near the top. Designated F for the engine and J40 for the short wheelbase chassis (there are mid and long wheelbase models as well), this competitor to the Jeep CJ and Land Rover has a long and loyal global following. The coming of the FJ40 can also be thanked for building worldwide confidence in the reliability and durability of Toyota vehicles since 1960, when the model was first introduced. The FJ40 is a rugged off-road vehicle that is happiest when it is covered in muck, fording a river or climbing a mountain. Hop in and let your Australian adventure begin.
