Fastest Car in Forza Horizon 4 for Each Drag Strip
As any drag racer will tell you, winning a drag race is about more than just going fast, and what makes a car fast at one distance isn’t exactly what makes it fast at another one. Having a top speed of 300 mph doesn’t matter if you don’t have enough runway to reach it.
In that vein, we’ve laid out the fastest drag cars in Forza Horizon 4 for each drag strip, as every drag strip is a different distance and some even have different surfaces. When going for the absolute fastest cars in the game, it’s about more than just which ones come fast stock, but which ones have the best upgrades available. Don’t get us wrong, some of these are beasts from the moment you get them, but to get to the absolute best times, all of them need to have their upgrades maxed out and a custom tune.
Horizon Festival: 1997 McLaren F1 GT
A car that just missed being on our overall best expensive cars list, the only thing standing in the way of you and the McLaren F1 GT is 5.3 million credits. If you’re like us, you have a ton of credits lying around, but then again, it’s pretty easy to blow a bunch real quick on a few expensive cars. If you can scrounge up the credits, you get a car that after upgrades has straight tens across the board. You can routinely get up to 200+ mph in the quarter mile—fast enough to smoke any of your friends.
Ice Flats: 1968 Dodge Dart Hemi Super Stock
This is the easiest to acquire car on our list, with a cost of only 125,000 credits in the Autoshow. That’s because in stock form it’s a relatively mild classic car with 425hp. Upgrade it all the way, however, and you get a 1,100hp car that shreds the ice on its way to beating anything else out there. Just be prepared to take a while to come to a stop. That ice is slippery.
Greendale Aerodrome: 1932 Ford Custom “Double Down”
As a part of the Barrett-Jackson Car Pack, you’ll either need to pay seven real-world dollars to get this or buy in it in the Auction House, unless you have the Car Pass, which gives it to you for free. We’d suggest the Auction House, as we were able to find quite a few examples available for under 100,000 credits. When you do finally get it, not only do you get the fastest car on the Aerodrome Drag Strip, but you get to look like a baller hot rodder when you beat everyone else.
Bamburgh Beach: 2012 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Forza Edition
We were lucky enough to get this in a wheelspin, but if you don’t, you can always pick it up at the Auction House. If the sellers are asking too high a price, the non-Forza Edition of this car is also amazing, so don’t feel like you’re getting a second-rate car if you use it. Not only is this a great drag car for long distances, but it handles extremely well and is one of the best cars in the game for getting from point A to B. We can’t recommend it enough.
The Juggernaut: 2002 Koenigsegg CC8S
If you have the Fortune Island expansion, you’ll get this car through your natural progression on the island, but if you don’t have that, as with so many others on this list, there’s always the Auction House. That said, there doesn’t seem to be as many examples of this up for auction as with the others, so if you can’t find it, just wait a couple days and look again. It should pop up sooner or later.
