Battle lines are being drawn in the sand for your hard earned dollars this coming holiday season. Forza Motorsports 3 for the Xbox 360 and Gran Turismo 5 for PS3 are both coming out this winter, and both boast realistic driving simulations, a variety of cars, and dozens of track to keep us entertained.

Forza, exclusively for the XboX 360, has recently released its complete list of over 400 in-game cars, and there are some real goodies on that list.

Naturally, the list includes many pricey, exotic European sports cars most of us will only ever drive in a video game. Cars like the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, Lamborghini Reventon, and Mercedes AMG SL 65 Black Series. Not to be outdone though are plenty of American-built bargain super cars, among them the Corvette Racing C6.R, 2005 Ford GT, its grandfather the 1966 GT-40, and the Dodge Viper SRT-10 ACR.

But there is a heaping helping of muscle cars in Forza Motorsports 3 as well. There are two 1969 Camaros, the Z/28 and the big-block SS Camaro. There is also the third generation 1990 IROC-Z Camaro, a 2002 Pontiac Trans Am Ram Air, and even the defunct 2009 G8 GXP. Ford is well represented with the 1970 Mustang Boss 429, 1993 Mustang Cobra SVT, and the 2007 GT500. Best of all, you'll get to take these cars to the drag strip as well as road courses, from an 1/8th mile all the way to a full mile.

If you purchase the game on the first day its available you also gain additional access to 2 new tracks and 10 new cars, among them the 1965 Shelby Daytona Coupe. While both the 2010 Camaro SS and 2009 Challenger SRT-8 are available, conspicuously absent is the 2010 Mustang. There should have been more than enough time to implement it into the game since its debut last November, so one must wonder if there weren’t other forces at work…
