Last week, we kicked off the Forza Motorsport 6 Garage by announcing 40 additional cars that will be part of the more than 450 cars in the game at launch, including the entire paddock of Formula E cars that are racing today. This week, we keep the garage door open and line up another 39 cars that will be a part of the biggest and best Forza game yet.

Leading off the pack is the 2014 Volvo #13 Volvo Polestar Racing S60 STCC. Sure, Volvo may be synonymous with safety, but the Polestar has made a name for itself through sheer speed and race victories. Then there's the 1999 BMW #15 BMW Motorsport V12 LMR, which is no stranger to victories either, adding its name to the illustrious list of 24 Hours of Le Mans winners.

Let's take a deeper look at this week's spotlight cars:

2014 Volvo #13 Volvo Polestar Racing S60 STCC
Three time Scandinavian Touring Car Championship Champion Thed Björk, three time champion Fredrik Ekblom and Prince Carl Philip Bernadotte of Scandanavia are the lucky pilots of the Volvo Polestar S60 in the STCC. The Polestar name has been synonymous with winning since Volvo took on Jan "Flash" Nilsson to run the factory Volvo race team in 1996. The wins started in the inaugural year of the STCC and have kept coming. The #13 won the 2014 championship adding to the already long list of wins and titles acquired by Polestar racing and Volvo. With its 3.5 liter 6-cylinder making 420 hp and pushing the rear wheels the S60 is one capable racer one that it will let its track record speak for itself.

1999 BMW #15 BMW Motorsport V12 LMR
With the demise of their partnership with McLaren as the F1 GTR was reaching the end of its racing career, BMW decided to delve into open-cockpit prototypes. The first attempt, the V12 LM, was underdeveloped, but this subsequent LMR version fixes many of the issues with the earlier car. The chassis is provided by constructor WilliamsF1, and the engine is a derivation of the same 6-liter V12 found in the racing versions of the McLaren F1 GTR. A simple car in theory, the carbon fiber open monocoque is very lightweight and boasts a proven engine. This #15 car was incredibly quick during its career, winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans outright in its first year of racing to provide BMW with their first win as a principal (rather than just as an engine supplier). Mission accomplished, the V12 LMRs went to compete in ALMS racing and BMW went into Formula 1 with WilliamsF1.
