Now Playing: Forza Mortorsport 7 Enhanced Xbox One X Gameplay - E3 2017

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.

Forza Motorsport 7 will have an enormous number of drivable cars--over 700, Microsoft states. Today, a handful of those were revealed, and they're all really cool vintage race cars.

In a blog post today, developer Turn 10 announced that a whole bunch of classic cars are coming to the game. They're not just 1960s and '70s muscle cars, either: they go way back to the years before World War II, when car racing was just getting started. According to the studio, they include cars with wooden frames; the first attempts at race cars from well-known manufacturers; and cars that significantly influenced automobile design.

1953 Chevrolet Corvette

You can see the whole list here. Turn 10 highlights the 1950 Alfa Romeo 158, the 1967 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia, and the 1953 Chevrolet Corvette. The Volkswagen is particularly notable, considering that the manufacturer was conspicuously absent from Turn 10's most recent release, Forza Horizon 3. Due to a licensing disagreement, the studio wasn't able to get VW cars in the game. They'll return, however, to Forza Motorsport 7.

Forza 7 launches on September 29 for Xbox One and Windows 10. Turn 10 previously announced 167 of the game's cars, which you can read about here. At E3 2017, Microsoft showed the game running on an Xbox One X at native 4K resolution and 60 frames per second. You can watch the gameplay video in the embed at the top of this article.

Forza Motorsports is becoming the new Gran Turismo. More cars that all feel the same and dumb features that takes focus away from the racing. Both Forza and GT peaked at the 4th game and it has been downhill from there ?

In truth wood is a good material to make cars (and just about anything else) from. It's cheap, durable, easy to work with, lightweight, and easy to repair/replace. Its only downside is that it doesn't provide much protection if you crash.

@lonesamurai1: Pretty sure by now everyone knows you're a PC gamer first or 99% of the time. But you can keep telling us every other article if you feel the need for some reason.

@lonesamurai1: Oh so out of 1000 games you've played, only 1 has been on console... That's believable.

@andyvecc011: I was stunned to see that there are two people that rate GT sport higher than Forza.

Then I saw that it was you who felt the need to post your opinion twice.

@ltjohnnyrico: Agree, looks like Project Cars is where it's at ?. I really enjoyed the first one and have a hard time going back to either GT or Forza, they are just trying to outdo themselves with new features and other nonsense while neglecting what made the series great in the first place.

@andyvecc011: So you're one of the PS fanboys making the rest of us look bad. Give the game props... There's plenty of other games to bash lol. But seriously, Forza is a good racer, if you're into racers.
