Intro
Welcome to the first installment of me being stupid and reviewing about 100 cars in a year! Weeeee! Anyways, today is the wonderful Alfa Romeo GTA and the big bad Chevelle SS-454.

Sprint
Alfa Romeo. I quite like those two words; since they mean something wonderful. Something glorious. Something simply..delightful.

Anyhow, this little Alfa is just..you just have to drive it to understand. The sound. Good god, the sound! That little straight-4 is just...just beautiful. In the higher revs it's just delicious. Often I...

Since this blog here has kinda died out, I thought I'd bring it back but do something different.

What I'm planning on doing is, every Monday, I will post a review on two cars. Not just any two cars, but two cars from 1940 (Ford Coupe) to 1980 (Esprit Turbo). Both cars will come from separate continents; for example, Japan and Europe. Each car will be reviewed completely stock and have its time kept on a leaderboard so it may be compared to every other 1980 and pre-1980 car. Since there's almost ~100 1980 and pre-1980 cars, this should be finished in almost a year, or I get totally bored...

What the heck, Llama? You really expect us to read about some four banger rice burner?
Yes, bolded text, I do. I was planning on reviewing the Plymouth GTX, but lately I've fallen in love with the absolute opposite of a muscle car. It's front wheel drive (or as many would have you believe, fail wheel drive, wrong wheel drive, etc). The Integra has an inline-four as opposed to a V8. It has only 1.8-2.0L of displacement. It weighs almost one thousand pounds less than any muscle car. It has these special Type-R badges on it. It's a bloody Honda, which is probably the furthest...

It's been about a month since FM4 has come out, giving me plenty of time to try a bunch of random cars. Surprisingly the first I'm going to review for FM4 is one that's been in Forza since Forza 1, the 2001 TVR Tuscan S.

Stock driving experience
Unsurprisingly, the Tuscan is your typical TVR. Kinda cute in the "I'm so wacky and I don't need TCS" way. The car is, in a word, adequate when stock. It has some oomph in a straight line. Being a TVR, when it comes to corners, it likes to get sideways. However, despite being a TVR, it actually grips fairly well....

Now that I have an Xbox again, I decided to revive this blog. Today is the Chrysler 300C, which is pretty much the land equivalent of a cruise liner. It weighs almost 4,200 pounds and exits the Karussell on the 'Ring with a satisfying thump. Maybe it's the dead bodies in the trunk.



Basically what's wrong with the car stock is it's just a cow. Too much weight. It is fairly stable and agile for a cow, which pretty much blew my mind. I can definitely see why this car is much...

Since this blog has been dead for a while, I decided to put up another review, this one of the Ferrari 288 GTO. Known as simply the "GTO" in Forza, it is one of the three cars in Ferrari's entire car heritage and history to ever wear the GTO in it's name. Seeing as another one of those cars is the Ferrari 250 GTO, which is in some eyes an iconic Ferrari, it makes no sense why it isn't driven more in Forza. It starts high in B class, so it has plenty of room to get to A class. It's not particularly cost-prohibitive when you compare it to the F50 and the F40. And, overall, it looks fantastic. Because...

So, another car that we decided to do is the Lotus Esprit. It's arguably the most under-rated car in the game, and we wonder why. In January I had a tune for the Lotus Esprit and I loved it, even if it was lacking a little bit on the straights. But then again, Lotuses aren't supposed to be drag strip dynos. They live to go around corners. Sure, the design and the technology is getting on a bit now when you compare them to cars like the Beamers and the Mercs that they fight against. One might say that it's a losing battle, but I didn't think so. There isn't really anything wrong with this car. It...

Out of any car we've reviewed, it's safe to say the F50GT is the best performing. However, it is very underrated and overlooked by the Forza community. Maybe it's the looks, or maybe because it's not called Mosler MT900, or people can't afford 500k credits, or something. I don't really know. Anyways, if there's anything wrong with the F50GT, it's the following: Speed. It's not the fastest R2 car out there. Lack of upgrades is another, you can only upgrade the rim style. Another one is (opinion!) looks. It's...

The Lamborghini Countach is a fantastic car, in my opinion. It, literally, is everything that Lamborghini stands for - outlandish design, a bit heavy, maybe even a bit insane. But that's Lamborghini, and this car has influenced the Lambos that we know and love today. While the new cars dote more to the person who wants some comfort, and uses a complex AWD system for when the going gets rough, the basic purpose of a Lamborghini has not changed one iota - to show people around you, "Get out of my way, I'm absolutely crazy and I'll run you off the road!" I mean, look at the car. It's a...

What's wrong with this car?
I'm sure you have a bunch of your own witty answers. Things like, "It's a Miata", "It can't fit my purse inside while I'm driving", etc. Really, there's only three things wrong with any Miata generation. First, they are wrongfully made fun of. Secondly, the Miatas aren't very fast. Thirdly, Miatas also have some noticeable oversteer. However, this snap oversteer is fairly controllable compared to other cars (like Corvettes. Sorry Bobbo, but it's true). The Miata's problems end there.

Now, the Miata is extremely...

The Lexus LF-A is one of three cars contained in the limited edition Stig's Car Pack. PI starts out at 616, same as the LF-A's direct rival: the Nissan GT-R. The LF-A costs a cool 360,000 credits.



Where to even start? The looks? The engine note? The performance? Fine, I'll start at how this amazing car performs without upgrades.

For the review, I took the LF-A on-where else?-the 'Ring.

The first thing you'll notice with the LF-A...

Everything is wrong with this car.
Okay, so, this is a car nobody's ever driven. Or one that anybody wants to admit to driving. The common belief is that Scions are pieces of cornbeef. Which is true for stock ones. The tC is one of those cars that you buy if you can't find anything else to drive, and even then it's more expensive than cheaper, better cars, like (I know some of you hate them, but the Civic is a respectable car) Civics, Firebirds, Supras, etc....

A quick note: Strictly speaking, there is nothing really wrong with the stock MC12. It drives okay, with great handling that betrays the fact that it's over 3000 lbs. But, for a car based off of the Ferrari Enzo, it really should be better. It doesn't do anything as fast as it's bright red stable mate - it's heavier, slower, but has marginally more grip. It's also much bigger - the thing is as wide as Russia. So, the car isn't a bad car at all - not like the Spaghetti and Panamera stock were. It's even attractive. It just lives inside the Enzo's shadow, and doesn't really earn it's food at the...

So, just what the heck is wrong with this car?

Well, you don't really need to be a brain surgeon to figure this one out. Apparently, Porsche spent the better part of a century engineering, designing and building the car. What were the fruit of their efforts? This... this thing. It looks extremely disproportioned - like someone stretched a 911 and then cut off the back. It's kind of hard to see who exactly this car was aimed for - especially when cars like the Aston Martin Rapide are in the same class. Who knows, though. Maybe Porsche have worked their magic on...

Tune created by Llama, refined and tested by 8 Eleven.

So, just what the heck is wrong with this car?
So, first off, we thought that we'd start off with a car that none of us have ever seen driven anywhere - the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti, if you can call it a Ferrari. Right from the start, this car doesn't look like it was originally a Ferrari. The engine is in the front, it's over 4000 pounds, has a fully furnished interior with 4 seats, and looks bigger in every way than all of the other Ferraris....
