As we head into August, the Forza Garage continues to bring Forza fans new cars for Forza Motorsport 6 that will astound and excite. This week, as gamescom takes place in Germany, we welcome a European contingent of radical rides to the Forza Garage.
Heading off the European fleet of cars that will be waiting to hit the grid in Forza Motorsport 6 are a pair of BMW race cars, each with their own remarkable racing achievements. Each car marks the poignant success of BMW Motorsport in eras of racing past and present.

Joining the mix of cars from Europe are some a slew of amazing open-wheel racers of IndyCar. The full list is worthy of inspection and will delight race fans of any order.

Now here is deep dive into both of our spotlight cars for this edition of the Forza Garage.

1975 BMW #25 BMW Motorsport 3.0 CSL
If its flamboyant BMW Motorsport livery and audacious body kit don't convince you this car is truly something special, then its history surely will. First, the 3.0 Coupe Sport Lightweight - better known as the CSL - debuted the official red, purple and blue colors of BMW Motorsport. Then it made its mark on nearly every major race series around the world. Deemed the "Batmobile" by worldwide fans, the CSL earned its lightweight moniker with a lithe aluminum body that helped make it a crowd and driver favorite. Marking the beginning of BMW Motorsport's racing heritage, the 3.0 CSL was campaigned in Group 2 through Group 5 classes in Europe and America. The unprecedented success it saw - driven by legendary racers like Brian Redman, Sam Posey and Hans Stuck, to name just a few - make the CSL one of the most successful production racers of all time. It's a supermodel among the most elite of homologation specials. If you can take your eyes off it for a moment to get behind the wheel, the driving experience will prove its looks aren't the only reason to admire the mighty CSL.

2014 BMW #55 BMW Team RLL Z4 GTE
When Team Rahal Letterman Lanigan (RLL) brought the Z4 GTE to bear, it marked both the end of one era and the dawn another for one of BMW Motorsport's most successful teams. Having seen much success with its BMW M3 GT, Team RLL embarked on a new road to glory with its Z4 GTE - in a bold new BMW Motorsport livery - in the Tudor United Sportcar Championship's GT LeMans (GTLM) class. At their first GTLM race, drivers Bill Auberlin, Andy Priaulx and Joey Hand took the #55 Z4 to a second-in-class podium at the 2014 24 Hours of Daytona. It was the beginning of a very successful year for Team RLL in the newly-married conflagration of the American Le Mans Series and Grand Am racing series. The long nose, gigantic rear wing and stout fenders, which accommodate the Z4 GTE's Michelin Racing tires make the car's racing heritage clear. It's up to you, the driver, to put these elements to work on the track and represent for the makers of the "ultimate driving machine."
