I’ve never been drag-racing personally, but I’ve watched enough racing movies to know the basic gist. Unlike traditional racing, drag racing is all about getting from point A to point B on a straight line as fast as humanly possible. There’s no turning, juking, or off-roading; it’s just you, your opponent, and one long stretch of road. For such a narrow goal, you require a very particular kind of car. So, what is the best drag car in Forza Horizon 4?
The best drag cars have an overwhelming emphasis on precisely three stats: launch, acceleration, and horsepower. You want this thing to shoot out the gate, get up to top speed as quickly as possible, and that top speed has to rival a full-blast wind tunnel. Other stats like handling and braking are just chaff when it comes to drag racing. You ain’t gonna be turning, and you sure as heck aren’t gonna be stopping. With all that in mind, let’s cover a few attractive options.
What is the Best Drag Car in Forza Horizon 4?
Starting from the most reasonable balance of cost versus performance, your first choice should be the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Forza Edition. While not the fastest car on the lot, the Aventador F.E. is probably the easiest to obtain, appearing frequently in the auction house for under a million credits. You can also get it as a Wheelspin reward. It’s a good choice for a beginner dragster.
If you’re an especially lucky sort, you could try going for the Porsche 906 Carrera 6. Luck is a factor here as it’s categorized as a “Hard-to-find” car; it very rarely shows up in the auction house, and the only other way to get it is as a lucky reward from a festival playlist. If you do happen to spot it, you should definitely jump on it.
The next best choice would be the McLaren F1 GT. This car packs a terrific punch, though fitting such a powerful ride, it costs an arm and a leg. You can only get this thing from the auction house for over 5 million credits.
If you’re really looking to dominate the drag boards, one of the unquestioned kings is, fittingly, the Shelby Monaco King Cobra. This lightweight viper goes from zero to holy moley at an almost obscene speed. The only problem is that it’s a DLC car. You need to have the Barrett-Jackson Car Pack installed before it’ll even show up in the auction house. If you don’t mind shelling out some real cash (and I mean “real” as in actual real life money), you can’t go wrong with this beast.
