The original Forza Horizon was a serious departure from the Forza Motorsport formula, a bit more Need for Speed than the sim-style genre and decidedly more open world. In our review we said the result was one of the best racing games around. Fast-forward a couple of years, and the Forza Horizon 2 car list is starting to take shape, driving our excitement for the sequel even higher than it already was.

When all is said and done, the Forza Horizon 2 car list will include more than 200 cars. Microsoft hasn’t spilled the beans completely, though they have shared the list of the first 100. Each car in Forza Horizon 2 has been built for the Xbox One — no half-assed scaled-up models here.

In addition, the cars will all handle differently based not just on model, but also on the dynamic weather in the game’s open world. That means when it rains you’ll see the cars use their fully functional windshield wipers. When it’s dark you’ll see them flip-on their working headlights and interior lights. And when they finish-up an off-road episode you’ll see them get filthy via dynamic dirt mapping.

The Forza Horizon 2 car options will include everything from supercars like the 2015 Lamborghini Huracán and Group B rally legends to monster off-roaders and classic American muscle cars.

Don’t take our word for it, though. Check out the first 100 cars on the Forza Horizon 2 car list, straight from Microsoft:
