With authentic simulation physics, bone-jarring damage, photo-realistic graphics, 300 of the worldÂ’s hottest cars for you to collect, and licensed tuning and customization options, Forza Motorsport 2 improves on the unprecedented features gamers enjoyed in its debut installment.

We've spent the last several weeks giving you the latest updates on some of the hottest new paint customization, engine tuning and online features of "Forza Motorsport 2." We've recently completely some calculations back at Turn 10 studios that determined between the myriad of custom tuning options and more than 4,000 layers that can be applied to your car's exterior using the paint and decal editor that the total number of combinations of unique rides you can create in Forza 2 exceeds 6 billion! Now that you know that whatever you do with the cars they're sure to be one of a kind ride, we want to tell you a little more about how you'll be able to turn heads with your dream vehicles at the track.

"Forza Motorsport 2" will include one of the most refined tournament systems of any racing simulator to date. You will be able to set up your own global tournament or join a friend's, as you overcome the competition and race towards No. 1! Progress and stats will be tracked in real time while racing fanatics the world over will be able to tune into "Forza Motorsport" TV to watch the action unfold.

Additionally, as you're racing your way to the top of the charts, you're sure to bear witness to a number of eye-popping "Forza" moments. Whether it's a gruesome crash, a great drift coming into the final turn, or simply a stunning Liveried racer, you can capture it all using the game's photo mode. Be sure to check out this week's Pitpass report for full details.

From true Force Feedback to online tournaments, from Xbox LIVE Auction House to our unmatched Livery editor, “Forza Motorsport 2” will truly set a new standard for the racing genre. According to Game Director Dan Greenawalt, “Soon, gamers will get a taste of the raw horsepower the Xbox 360 game engine has provided as we redefine what it means to be a racing simulator with Forza Motorsport 2. Whether it’s the hundreds of thousands of physics parameters captured from countless man hours taking track measurements and capturing car data to harnessing the power of the industry’s most advanced the neural-network search algorithms, non-linear and linear math models as well as AI simulation systems from our Microsoft Research Labs, we’ve turned mountains of real world raw data into a living, breathing racing simulator where the only difference between the game and reality is that you’re not risking life and limb when you hit a wall at 200 mph.”

This week, we’re unveiling the aftermarket production cars in the game, with rare models including the Tommy Kaira Skyline from Nissan and the VeilSide Supra Fortune from Toyota.
