There’s nothing quite like a good car chase, and even more so, there’s nothing better than an iconic film car. Franchises like Fast & Furious and James Bond have all had their very own defining cars, but of which of these spectacular rides, famous from their on-screen cameos, is the best? In his latest challenge video inspired by The Grand Tour, our very own Tom Matthews is once again teaming up with Sam Blyth, as well as Iain of MineAndDrive, as they set out to find the best movie car in Forza Horizon 3!
It’s worth noting that this challenge comprises of cars from both films and popular television series, which you’ll see from Iain’s choice of the iconic GMC Vandura from The A-Team – a classic American action-adventure show from the 1980s that broadcasted on NBC. Meanwhile, Tom chose the classic ‘General Lee’ from The Dukes of Hazzard. It’s a 1969 Dodge Charger that’s made authentic thanks to the placement of its numeric vinyl sticker. Whilst both of these vehicles originate from classic television shows, it's worth noting that they each also had their own dedicated movie as well.
As for Sam, he decided to opt for the Ford XB Falcon ‘V8 Interceptor’ from the 1979 Australian dystopian action film Mad Max. This car has been a staple of the Mad Max franchise, appearing throughout its various sequels and video game spinoffs, including the latest entry in the series – Mad Max: Fury Road. The trio put their cars to the test across a variety of different challenges, including a drag race at the airstrip, a series of stunts to earn as many Skill Points as possible within 60 seconds, and there’s even an adrenaline-fuelled police chase!
The result is one simply unmissable challenge that combines both gameplay footage with cinematic angles captured using Forza Horizon 3’s Drone Mode. As for the film car and stunt driver that came out on top, however, you’ll need to watch the video above and find out for yourself. You certainly don’t want to miss it! In the meantime, if you missed out on Tom’s previous Forza Horizon 3: The Grand Tour videos, you can catch up on his Classic Jaguar Challenge and Lancia vs Audi Challenge.
