Forza Motorsport 6 is the upcoming racing title for the Xbox One. It has been revealed that the game will include two legendary racing cars: the McLaren M8B and M2B.
Developer Turn 10 announced today that the McLaren M8B and M2B from the 1960’s will be playable in Forza 6.
The McLaren M8B was used in 1969 during the Cam-Am series. The vehicle was driven by Denny Hulme and Bruce McLaren. Either Hulme or McLaren won every race that year, with the two coming in first and second in eight out of eleven races. The car was nicknamed the “Orange Elephant” because of its orange coloring.
The M2B came out in 1966, and was the company’s first attempt at creating an F1 car. While its shape is iconic, it did not perform very well, unfortunately. Later revisions of the car allowed Bruce McLaren do well in later races.
Turn 10 also announced around 40 other cars, including the 1969 Chevy Camaro, and the 1984 Ferrari GTO. You can see a full list of all the announced cars so far here.
Forza Motorsport 6 will release on September 15th. The game will be available on the Xbox One.
