By now, you realize that the Gunslingers enjoy a variety of interactive online experiences. Most of them involve guns. Some of them involve magic. This, however, deals with neither. The explosions here are contained within combustion chambers. The only fire you’ll see will come from exhaust pipes.

It’s not magic, readers; it’s engineering, with an emphasis on “engine”. Welcome to Forza Motorsport 5.

This is Act One of a two-part blog series. Forza Motorsport is an IP that needs little introduction; you buy cars,  you paint cars, you tune cars, you race cars. You can get lost in customization and tuning options, if that kind of thing suits your fancy. You can fill your garage with cars you may only dream of seeing in person. Globe trot and earn enough cash to make whatever you’ve got keep up with anything they have.  Well, almost anything.

This is just a glimpse into what’s possible.

A couple of Gunslingers answered the call, and proudly displayed their ice cold whips for your viewing pleasure. Click those pictures for each vehicle’s make/model, as well as the super sexy high definition photo.

There’s nothing like sliding through snowy turns in the Alps to remind you that speed can be a fickle mistress.

 

Sure, Cute’s garage is worth more than the GDP of most nations, but enough about that. Seen one, seen ’em all, right? Here’s something a little different.

TTL LocoMotive's 1995 Toyota MR2 GT

Loco’s aptly named “Slinger Slayer”. He likes to look for trouble, and I’m an easy target. You’ll want to let him pass.

 

Now let’s take a moment to bring it in a little closer. Turn down the lights and settle in. It’s time for an intimate moment with your writer’s 2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series.

Again: Click those pictures. You won’t regret it.

Adjust your collar. Take a deep breath. Check your pulse.

That’s all for this week. Next week, you’ll get to see some of these cars and more in motion. Warning: They don’t always land rubber-side down.
