Need for speed: the 10 best cars of Forza Horizon 2

From impressive landscapes to dynamic weather, Forza Horizon 2 is one beautiful game. It's also a game that welcomes you to drive how you want. With over 200 cars to choose from, which wheel will you get behind first?

To help you out, Prima Games is here with a premiere list of the 10 must-drive cars of Forza Horizon 2.

2015 Ford Mustang GT

A car that will no doubt turn heads upon its release in the real world as it will in the game, Ford's latest Mustang is a beast, with over 435 horsepower and the ability to rip across the countryside with ease. Choose your favorite color and prepare to tear through both open roads and cornfields as you head for a first place victory.

1967 Ferrari 330 P4

Maybe you don't want something too modern. Not to worry, as the 1967 Ferrari 330 P4 is a delightful throwback. While a bit costly from the shop (hope you have several hundred thousand lying around), this baby comes with plenty of power, handling and efficiency, guaranteed to score you some first place wins.

1949 Mercury Coupe

Remember Doc Hudson from Pixar's Cars movie? The Mercury Coupe is built like that, sleek and brimming with the kind of power to get you over the finish line. While not as fashionable as other cars on this list, the Coupe is still a force once you get behind the wheel. It's definitely capable of careening past other cars with very little trouble.

1956 Ford F-100

There are a lot of rally events included in Forza Horizon 2, so you want a good vehicle that'll do as much off-road as it will on the main paved roads. While the 1956 Ford F-100 doesn't look like much compared to bigger, badder trucks, there's plenty to admire when it comes to overall performance. Plus, it's perfect when you want to find a shortcut through the brush, which will no doubt put you in the lead.

1977 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am

OK, we admit it – we want to be the bandit. This iconic racing classic, which made its cinematic debut in the 1977 movie Smokey and the Bandit, is a comfortable fit in the Forza Horizon world, and absolutely perfect for jetting from city to city, or for simply taking a zippy drive through checkpoints. You don't even have to worry about Smokey chasing you down.
