Forza Motorsport 6, the upcoming Xbox One-exclusive racing game, is getting several legendary racing cars.

Developer Turn10 announced today that two McLaren cars used in races during the 1960s are coming to the game. The McLaren M8B and M2B will be playable, headlining Turn10's offering of classic cars.

The M8B was used in 1969 during the Can-Am series, driven by Denny Hulme and Bruce McLaren. Either Hulme or McLaren won every race that year, and the two came in first and second in eight of the eleven races. The car is known as the "Orange Elephant" due to its orange color.

The M2B debuted in 1966, and it was the company's first foray into creating an F1 car. It had an iconic shape, but it did not perform well. Revisions of the car let Bruce McLaren finish well in later races.

Turn10 also announced around 40 other cars, including classics such as the 1969 Chevy Camaro and the 1984 Ferrari GTO. You can check out the full list of cars announced so far on the developer's website.
