As we move into the final weeks of car announcements, the Forza Garage delivers some of the greatest race cars from all genres of motorsport, and with that comes many a special car (and truck) that you may not have seen coming. Give this week's list a good once over for the full impact of what you'll soon experience in-game.

Let's take a look at the week eight spotlight cars:

1969 Nissan #21 Nissan Racing R382
Despite showing its potential with a race win at the 1968 Japanese Grand Prix, the Nissan R381 chassis was scrapped for the '69 season. The new R382 was to be built from the ground up, utilizing Nissan's first V12 engine - the GRX-3 - which was built by Prince Motor Company. The new chassis featured an integrated rear wing to comply with FIA regulations and an opening in the tail to provide extra downforce while cooling the 600 hp V12. The massive engine was fed air through an equally-massive intake on top of the motor. Although Porsche was dominating world endurance racing with their 917Ks, the R382 took the top two podium spots on home turf at the Japanese Grand Prix - a full lap ahead of its nearest competitor.

1993 Peugeot #3 Peugeot Talbot Sport 905 EVO 1C
Some of the greatest names in French industry and motorsport contributed to the development of the 905. For example, Dassault Aviation helped develop the carbon fiber monocoque, and Jean Todt (a former rally co-driver) brought experience from the long and successful motorsports program of Talbot to form Peugeot's own motorsport division, Peugeot Talbot Sport. The car itself is highly innovative, being similar in construction to an F1 car, but clothed in closed bodywork and powered by a unique V10. The engine was developed to meet WSC regulations and to be used in a future F1 car (the unsuccessful Peugeot-powered McLaren), sporting an unusual 80-degree bank angle and no turbochargers, but making 640 horsepower out of just 3.5 liters. This EVO 1C model is an update to the original car, featuring significantly revised bodywork and a distinctive biplane rear wing. The update was wildly successful, as EVOs swept the podium in 1993 ahead of the very quick Toyota TS010 GT-ONE. This particular #3 car was the overall winner. Peugeot, quite satisfied with the result, withdrew to pursue an ultimately unsuccessful F1 program, letting the 905 go out on a high note.
