Over the last few weeks, we’ve brought you a running tally of all the great autos to be found in the upcoming Forza Horizon 2. With the final count expected to hit over 200 in total, here is this week’s latest reveal.
The folks at the Xbox Wire state the latest batch are tied to racing history in some form or fashion, touting the “…Lancia took its sixth consecutive manufacturer’s title in World Rally competition,” and the “…homologated version of the 1992 Lancia Delta HF Integrale EVO found in the game absolutely screams to dust up the back roads.”
But as they say, talk is cheap. Let’s get to the real meat and potatoes and dive (or drive) into the latest additions. Here are the four featured from this week’s list (with the remaining 11 pulling up the rear as is customary):

This was biggest wing ever put on a Mercedes four-door. The car is, of course, all business on the inside, offering the luxury and finish you expect from Daimler. Only a little more than 500 of these were produced, so once again Forza is very likely the only chance most of us will get to experience its beauty and grace on the track.
2011 Bugatti Veyron Super Sport
There is no substitute for the Veyron Super Sport; even among hypercars it stands alone. The Veyron alone is the fastest car in the world but, for some, that is not enough. If the Super Sport cannot quench your thirst for over-the-top speed and horsepower the only alternative is start racing airplanes, because very few machines match the SS for pure ground speed.
2012 Hennessey Venom GT
Born with the goal of being a 1,000-plus horsepower car that weighs less than 3,000 pounds, the Hennessey Venom GT is based on the Lotus Elise—complete with the Venom 1,000 horsepower, twin-turbo motor, then lightened…
