The Jaguar Sport XJR-15 is probably one of the best S1 cars available in Forza Horizon 5.

It produces 450 bhp and thanks to its low weight of just 1,050 kg, it can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds.

This makes it one of the fastest cars in its class.

Honda NSX-R GT

The Honda NSX-R GT is a race car that was introduced in 2002. It’s based on the second generation NSX and it features a 3.2-litre V6 engine that produces 350 horsepower.
