Forza Horizon 3 on Xbox One

Last week the third set of Forza Horizon 3 reveals showed off off classic Ferraris, Maseratis, and Jaguars. This week the Forza team is at it again and has unveiled a fourth set of vehicles which naturally belong in the Australian Outback.

The biggest unveils this week feature the 1971 Meyers Manx,  2011 Penhall Cholla, and the 1979 Toyota FJ40. However, in case you’re not an automotive geek, we’ve included Forza’s official descriptions for your enlightenment below.

1971 Meyers Manx:

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:

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.

1979 Toyota FJ40:

Designated F for the engine and J40 for the short wheelbase chassis 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.
