It has arrived, the desk shot of mystery that hides the new metal coming to Forza in next week. As usual the tweet gives nothing obvious away, we know for sure is there will be four new cars meaning here are my educated guesses.

1. Savage Rivale GTS 2013 - See those Dutch police officers, whilst the Dutch are known for a lot of things, tulips, cheese and clogs, cars don't immediately spring to mind. And if you remember that leaked list of upcoming cars found in the files, well one car was this oddity, the Dutch made Savage Rivale GTS. A carbonfibre limited production car sporting a Corvette V8. Sounds pretty tasty, even if it looks like a melted Mitsubishi Eclipse.

2. Zenvo TSRS 2019 - Another one from the leaked list of cars, the TSR builds on Zenvo's other mad supercars. It was the small bits of LEGO that pushed me to look towards Denmark. Squint and you can see what looks like a wing on the LEGO model, and with a spoiler that big (and cool) its hard not to see an association. Beyond this the TSRS has a twin-turbo V8, 1177 bhp and can do 0-60 in 2.8 seconds. It also presents this season's theme as one of big performance from niche brands.
3. Nissan Pulsar GTI-R 1990 - I racked my brains with the equation and had no luck finding anything other than big numbers that meant very little. So I did what any good journalist would do and ignored the hard bit. Instead I took a punt at those expanding rings above it and make the logical leap to a badly drawn solar system. From here I then looked at the list and saw this car above. Get it... a Pulsar and Space. Pretty rubbish I know but I needed four and I was clutching straws. Still, what a car the Pulsar is, built for homologation in the 1990s for group A rallying (think Escort Cosworth) the Pulsar GTI-R has plenty of power in a car as big as a duckling. Also, it'll probably be a rhd model meaning it will feel better on the British roads of Horizon.

4. Toyota Corolla AE86 Trueno GT-Apex Hatchback - Not part of the leaked list but with Toyota back there are plenty of requested models that should be coming to the game soon. Look at those capital D's on the board and we can link it to Initial D, that anime that which starred that long-named car and made it a cult-favourite among Jap fans. Make it a brilliant drifter by giving it a black bonnet and enjoy the pop-up lamps, they have been missed.
Whatever happens, we will have plenty of interesting cars to keep us entertained for the next month. What do think will be included next month? Let me know in the comments.
That looks like the exhaust of the Lamborghini Huracan Performante! Very good news.
