Turn 10 has released a new list detailing some of Forza Motorsport 6’s 450-car line-up.

Additional info on the Formula E cars and their drivers, as well as latest announced rides, is available below. The full list, with all pre-order and retail-exclusive cars, can be found here. New info is set to be sent out each week until release.
