Forza Motorsport 6 to offer every car on Formula E grid

Open-wheel racing didn't make a big jump in the Forza Motorsport universe until the most recent installment of the flagship series, Forza Motorsport 5. With Forza Motorsport 6, though, the open-wheel roster will grow in a big way.

According to the folks behind the blockbuster racing title, Turn 10 Studios, the next installment will include the entire Formula E grid. The all-electric open-wheel series made its first appearance as part of a downloadable content package in FM5, but for FM6, all 10 teams will be represented when the game launches on September 15.

On top of the electric racers, FM6 adds several dozen cars to its already growing roster, including the 2002 Ferrari Enzo, 1988 Lamborghini Jalpa, 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG, 2009 Mini John Cooper Works, and 2005 TVR Sagaris. Many of these recent additions were seen in previous Forza titles, either as standard or as DLC. For the sixth installment in the series, these cars will be offered free of charge. They join an impressive roster that will eventually include some 450 vehicles.

You can scroll down for the official press release announcing the Formula E models. And as a special treat, we've embedded a list of every car that's been announced so far. September 15 is less than three months away, after all, so you should know what you'll be driving when Forza Motorsport 6 hits shelves.

The Forza Garage is Now Open! New Car List Confirmations for "Forza Motorsport 6"

The Forza Garage is now open! At E3 2015, we pulled back the curtain on "Forza Motorsport 6" for the first time, including revealing 117 of more than 450 cars that will make up the Forza 6 car list.

Starting now and leading up to the release of "Forza Motorsport 6" on Sept. 15, we'll be revealing more details each week on the full car list for the game, including additional information on the new tracks being brought to the racing world.

Today's Forza Garage announcement kicks off with a bang with ten FIA Formula E cars making their debut in "Forza Motorsport 6." The original 2014 Renault Spark SRT_01E made its worldwide debut in "Forza Motorsport 5" as a DLC car – this time, the entire field of the 2014/2015 FIA Formula E season will be represented for the first time in a console racing game.

Formula E is a new FIA championship and the world's first fully-electric racing series. It represents a vision for the future of the motor industry, serving as a framework for research and development around the electric vehicle, accelerating general interest in these cars and promoting sustainability. The first race took place in Beijing in September 2014, the first of 11 races taking place in major cities around the world including London, Berlin and Moscow. For the inaugural season, 10 teams, each with two drivers, compete head-to-head, creating a unique and exciting racing series designed to appeal to a new generation of motorsport fans.

While still in its youth, Formula E racing requires strategic use of the limited charge of the racecar's battery. During a pit stop, the entire car is swapped rather than changing batteries. Elements such as Fan Boost, where race fans vote for which driver should get an additional power adder, make the series even more immersive for fans.

The cars are not silent – their sound is unique and very prevalent with a recordable level of no more than 80 db, not much more than the average commuter car. Acceleration is impressive with 0-60 attainable in less than three seconds. Top speeds are around 140 mph.

This past weekend's 2015 Formula E season finale brought city circuit racing back to the city of London after a 40-year hiatus. NEXTEV TCR driver Nelson Piquet Jr. was crowned as the first Formula E champion after finishing seventh place at the Battersea Park circuit, earning enough points to secure the first Formula E title.

Now have a look at the cars and teams, as well as the primary drivers who competed this season:

2015 Formula E #55 Amlin Aguri Spark SRT_01E
