Are cars worth it?

Hey I have somewhat of a stockpile of credits at the moment and am thinking about wiping them out, but w/o being able to test the cars I wanted to know before I am disappointed by an ill handling or poor sounding car.

On the list of potentials are

250 GTO
Shelby Daytona Coupe
McLaren F1
Pagani Huayra

If anyone has anything to say about any of these cars it’d be greatly appreciated. I’m hoping to be able to drive the classics as close to stock as possible so I’m looking for the best cars w/o a tune.


250 GTO is so so
GT40 is so so
Shelby is ok
McLcaren F1 is garbage
Pagani Huayra is garbage

I have two of these cars right now and never use them. The others I got rid of long ago.

You need to rethink what tracks you like for circuit, drag, and drift and go for that. I wouldn’t buy any of these.

That’s a bummer (never meet your heros theory), but thanks for the input!

They look good though.

250 GTO, is competitive in C class.
GT40, might be competitive in A-S class.
Shelby Daytona Coupe, No idea.
McLaren F1, woeful, but awesome to own and look at in Forza vista.
Pagani Huayra, woeful, but awesome to own and look at in Forza vista.

I like the hyuara but its necesary to fine tune it if you wanna race with it. As is with every car in this game. None of them really arnt good as is. There is always room for improvement.

I’ve raced both the McLaren F1 and Pagani Huayra. They aren’t “garbage” Best suited for tracks with long straights. The Huayra is deceptively smooth, but it will bite you if you aren’t careful. Used the F1 on Yas Marina, blitzed them down the straight;)

Then you haven’t really tuned them. They are slow on the straights as well but as 2 others have posted, they are cool to look at.

I apologise for having an opinion. If you say they’re garbage, then they must be.

Don’t apologize. I haven’t tried the Huayra but that guy obviously hasn’t really tuned the F1. One trick is that it needs a lot of rear camber.

Sarcasm doesn’t always translate on the interwebs;)

I understood man, just thought it was a good place to start.

Anybody have any big ticket cars they love?

250 GTO - Good C class racer.
GT40 - Lots of fun. Can be a great race car in A.
Shelby Daytona Coupe - Fun car to drive. Another good A class and good in B class.
McLaren F1 - Fast and just a fun car to drive around in. Nothing extreme for tuning for circuit racing, but still a cool car to own.
Pagani Huayra - Never been a fan of this car, but it isn’t too bad to drive.

I plan to own every vehicle in the game, like the car or not, eventually. I am currently at 91 (except that 4 of them are Camaro ZL1’s and 2 are Lexus LFA’s).
