Mafia 3 player finds his perfect car in Forza Horizon 5

A Mafia 3 player managed to find their ideal in-game car in Forza Horizon 5’s vast roster with the help of the game’s online community.

For those who may not know, Forza Horizon 5 has an extremely wide selection of cars to choose from. When the game launched on November 4, 2021, you could choose from over 500 vehicles.

With so many cars to choose from, it can be incredibly daunting to find the perfect match, whether it’s for racing or cruising the open world.

Sometimes the fastest way to get great feedback is to ask a game’s online community for help.

That’s exactly what happened to a Reddit user who used the username ‘portraitsman’. They took to the Forza subreddit to find a car they liked in Hangar 13’s Mafia 3.

Portraitsman posted a short clip with a full panoramic view of a car in Mafia 3, explaining that they wanted to find a similar car to use in Forza Horizon 5.

Unfortunately, Mafia 3 uses fictitious branding, making it difficult to find a real equivalent without specific prior knowledge.

The 1965 Pontiac GTO is one of Forza Horizon 5’s most stylish retro cars.

As such, the portrait guy appealed to the Forza Horizon 5 community to see if they could identify similar cars in the huge in-game catalog.

After just one day, the post garnered over 700 upvotes with over 90 comments suggesting possible cars that matched the Mafia 3 clip.

The general consensus was that the 1965 Pontiac GTO was the most comparable car.

I like this car from Mafia III, but the car branding in that game is fictitious. Can someone point me to a similar car like this one in FH5? from forza

Others suggested the car resembled the 1969 Chevrolet Nova SuperSport 369, and many said the Mafia 3 car was essentially an amalgamation of the two vehicles.

This gave players a sense of how developers create stealthy or generic vehicles in games that avoid specific branding.

Either way, it’s always nice to see a community come together to help players and have interesting and engaging discussions.
