Forza titles are known for their superior graphics, cinematography, vehicle inventory, and controls. The same can be said for the fan-favorite, Forza Horizon 4. The FH4 is the fourth title in the Horizon series and eleventh overall game in the Forza franchise. It was the first game in the series to introduce the season change mechanism, new game modes, and other content expansions. However, here we’ll talk about the fastest cars in the game.
Forza Horizon 4 is perhaps one of the largest open-world racing games ever created. It features an extensive collection of iconic and remarkable sports cars that we can ever ride. The Forza Horizon 4 has a collection of over 750 licensed cars that can be purchased or acquired through different methods.
Before we start with the list of fastest cars in Forza Horizon 4, it’s important to keep in mind that due to hundreds of vehicles and their countless upgrade options, it is challenging to make a precise list of the fastest cars in the game.
13. Ferrari LaFerrari
Top Speed: 216 mph to 221 mph
Engine: 6.3 L naturally-aspirated hybrid V12
Forza H4 performace index: S2 966
LaFerrari (literally, “The Ferrari”) is one of the fastest cars ever produced by the iconic Italian automotive manufacturer. It is also a unique car that stands out from other Ferrari builds in several ways. To start with, LaFerrari is the first full hybrid car manufactured by the company.
LaFerrari is also one of the only two Ferrari models to be not designed, or include styling inputs, by Pininfarina since 1951. Pininfarina is a Turin-based car design firm that provides services to well-known automobile manufacturers globally, including Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Maserati, General Motors, and Hyundai. The only other production Ferrari that this firm did not design is the 1973 Dino 308 GT4.
The car is fitted with a huge direct fuel-injected V12 engine along with a KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System) unit that provides extra power to the car for short periods. Its total power output is 950 hp and 516 lb-ft (pound-foot) torque [161 hp or 163 PS through the KERS unit].
The maximum speed of LaFerrari varies between 216 mph and 221 mph in Forza games. Moreover, the car’s top speed is exaggerated to 257 mph in Forza Horizon 3. As far as the acceleration is concerned, LaFerrari can reach 0-62 mph in 2.9 seconds and 0-186 mph under 6.9 seconds. You can purchase this car for 1,500,000 CR from Autoshow or the Auction House.
12. McLaren P1
Top speed: 250 mph
Engine: 3.8 L twin-turbocharged V8
Forza H4 performance index: S2 962
The McLaren P1 is one of the fastest cars in the Forza series. It was designed and produced by the famed British automaker McLaren Automotive between 2013 and 2015. P1 is short for “Position 1” or “First place.”
The car is powered by a 3,798 cc (M838TQ) twin-turbocharged V8 engine with a power output of 727 hp at 7,500 pm and is supplemented by an electric motor generating 177 hp and 192 lb-ft of torque. The total combined power output of the McLaren P1 is 903 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque.
The P1 has a top speed of 250 mph. As for acceleration, it can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds and 0 to 100 mph in 5.2 seconds. The car features several components normally used in Formula One racing, such as the Drag reduction System (DRS) and Instant Power Assist System (IPAS).
About four different variants of McLaren P1 appear in the Forza games. They are – Limited Collector Edition (for Motorsport 5), ‘Owen’s Edition’ (unobtainable car), Team Forza (add-ons for Horizon 2 and Motorsport 6), and P1 GTR.
11. McLaren Speedtail
Top speed: 250 mph
Engine: 4.0 L twin-turbocharged V8
Forza H4 performance index: S2 940
McLaren Speedtail is a limited-edition hybrid hypercar that was revealed for the first time by McLaren Automotive in October 2018. After Senna, the P1, and F1, Speedtail is the fourth model in the McLaren Ultimate Series. With a maximum speed of 250 miles per hour, it is also the fastest-yet car produced by the British manufacturer.
The Speedtail is fitted with a modified M840T twin-turbocharged V8 engine alongside an electric motor to provide a parallel hybrid configuration. It generates a total of 1,036 horsepower and 848 lb-ft torque. The car can accelerate from 0-186 mph at 12.8 seconds.
Similar to its predecessor, the McLaren F1, the Speedtail has a 3-seat layout in which the driver’s seat is positioned at the center of the car followed by two passenger seats just behind it on both sides. While this configuration is highly unusual, it allows the driver to have greater visibility. Furthermore, the passenger seats are attached to the chassis of the car to add more rigidity. Like other McLaren cars, it features dihedral doors.
McLaren Speedtail appears in only two Forza games; Forza Horizon 4 and Horizon 5. There are three different ways you can acquire the car in Forza H4.
1. As a festival playlist reward (Hard-to-Find)
2. By redeeming a pass at Horizon Backstage
3. Successfully bidding at Auction House
10. Hoonigan Ford “Hoonicorn” Mustang

Engine: 6.7 L twin-turbocharged V8
Forza H4 performance index: S2 985
The Hoonigan Ford Mustang, nicknamed “Hoonicorn,” is a race car designed by Hoonigan Racing Division that appears in Forza Horizon 3, 4, and 5. It is based on the iconic 1965 Ford Mustang GT Coupe. The “Hoonicorn” Mustang is powered by a 6,700 cc twin-turbocharged V8 engine that produces a massive 1400 hp and 1200 ft·lb of torque. It has a top speed of 255 mph.
Hoonicorn is also one of the fastest accelerating stock cars in the game. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 1.8 seconds and from 0-100 mph in 3.15 seconds, surpassing close competitors such as Koenigsegg One: 1 and Porse 918 Spyder. The car is ideal for burnouts and drifting due to its significant wheelspin. However, compared to its similarly rated peers, the Hoonigan Ford Mustang has average braking and handling, especially around the corners.
The Hoonigan Ford “Hoonicorn” Ford can be acquired from Autoshow for 500,000 CR and can also be purchased through Auction House. A variant of Hoonicorn — Hoonigan Gymkhana 10 Ford Hoonicorn Mustang — also appears in the game. However, it is a Hard-to-Find car.
9. Rimac Concept Two
Top speed: 258 mph
Engine: 4 x liquid-cooled electric motors
Forza H4 performance index: S2 994
The Rimac Concept Two, or C Two, is an electric hypercar designed and produced by Croatian car manufacturer Rimac Automobili. Compared to other cars in this list, Rimac C Two is unique as it is entirely powered by four liquid-cooled permanent magnet synchronous electric motors that are located near each wheel. Their combined power output is 1,914 hp and 1,696 ft·lb of torque.
It comes with a heavy-duty 120 kWh lithium nickel manganese cobalt oxide (NMC) battery that takes 30 minutes to charge up to 80 percent. According to the company, the car’s maximum range is 340 miles (550 km) on the WLTP cycle and 402 miles (647 km) on the NEDC cycle.

Rimac C Two is an exclusive car that can be acquired through either an Auction House listing or at the Horizon Backstage.
8. Koenigsegg Agera
Top Speed: 262 mph
Engine: 5.0 L Koenigsegg twin-turbocharged V8
Forza H4 performance index: S2 920
Koenigsegg Agera is without a doubt one of the most popular models designed by the Swedish sports car manufacturer. ‘Agera’ is a Swedish verb, which means ‘to act,’ or imperatively speaking, ‘You act!’ The car was produced between 2010 and 2017.
The Agera is powered by a 5 L V8 engine with twin-turbochargers that produce a maximum of 947 hp at 6,900 rpm and 811 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm. However, in the Forza series, it fluctuates between 940 hp to 946 hp. The prototype version of the car was fitted with a smaller, 4.7 L engine. Agera can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds and 0 to 124 mph in 8 seconds.
Since its launch in 2010, several high-performance variations of Agera have been introduced, including Koenigsegg One: 1 and Koenigsegg Agera RS.

Top speed: 267 mph
Engine: 8.0 L quad-turbocharged W16
Forza H4 Perfomance Index: S2 922
The Veyron Super Sport is a more powerful and faster version of Bugatti Veyron 16.4, launched in 2010. The car is powered by a 7,993 cc quad-turbocharged W16 engine that generates 1,183 hp at 6,400 rpm and a maximum torque of 1,106 lb-ft.
It became the fastest production car on earth after achieving a maximum speed record of 267 mph or 431 km/h in 2010. However, multiple hypercars have since broken this record on different occasions. To commemorate the achievement, Bugatti released a special version of the car – Super Sport World Record Edition – with a black carbon fiber upper body and orange-colored lower body and wheels. Only five such units were ever produced.
The Veyron Super Sport has one of the quickest accelerations in Forza Horizon 4. It can reach 0-60 mph in just 2.5 seconds and 0-100 mph in 5 seconds. However, due to the high curb weight, the car suffers from understeering and thus giving rise to handling problems on short and tricky race tracks. You can get this car from Autoshow at 2,250,000 CR.
