1. Toyota Supra RZ

Toyota Supra

How can I not put Supra in the number 1 spot? if you’re a JDM enthusiast then you know that the Supra is worth of taking the number 1 spot in this list as the best JDM car in Forza horizon 4, you can literally customize this car however you want, with around 6 engine swap options all the way from I4 to v8.

Apart from the engine swap options you can upgrade and style the car however you like, but there is somewhat of a catch, the Supra RZ is an uncontrollable car so you need to either convert it to AWD ( all wheel drive) or have super sensitive throttle control.

When tamed right, this beast of a car can beat any car in the game, here’s a good tune for the Supra RZ

You probably didn’t know this but the LFA is one of the most iconic JDM super cars ever produced , this beast of a car boasts a naturally aspirated V10 engine producing 552BHP, capable of smoking even a stock supra and giving serious competition to the Nissan GTR R35.

The LFA is one of the best JDM cars in Forza Horizon 4 mainly because of it’s unique design and customizability, when upgraded to the maximum settings, the LFA can even beat modern supercars such as Mclaren, Lamborghini and even Ferrari.

This car also has better control and handling when compared to the Supra RZ, here’s a good tune for the Lexus LFA.

I know what you’re thinking, the image is from Forza Horizon 5 because I deleted Forza Horizon 4 a while back, but the graphics and gameplay is the same so it doesn’t matter right?

Anyway, everyone knows the Iconic car that’s dubbed “Godzilla” and for a very good reason, this beast contains a twin turbo charged v6 engine producing almost 600hp, but the best thing about this car is the launch control due to AWD(all wheel drive).

The GTR is an option that every JDM lover should consider while purchasing a car in Forza Horizon 4 because it can give pretty tough competition to European giants. Here’s a good tune for the GTR.

Engine3.8L Twin-Turbocharged V6, 565 bhp (421 kW), 467 lb⋅ft (633 N·m)

I can only imagine the brap brap brap of the RX-7 when I look at this image, the rotary engine which is actually used in propeller planes is under the hood of this car so it’s only logical that I’ll include it in this list.

The Mazda RX7 is a 1997 production sports car, with a twin turbocharged 13B REW 2 rotor engine under the hood, this car makes 261BHP and is capable of even beating the Toyota Supra.

The RX7 has phenomenal control and is known to be one of the only JDM car that can be customized however you like, be it for drag racing, Pro mods, drifting or even track use! this car can be used for any type of race.

Here’s a good drift tune for the RX7.

5. Mazda RX-8

I don’t know why people hate the RX8 so much, this car has got so much potential and just like the RX7, the RX8 is an amazing car in terms of looks and style.

However, there is one problem with the car and it’s that it’s not built for reliability, but hey, we’re talking about Forza here, reliability is the least of our concerns , and the RX8 is an amazing JDM car in the game.

Just like the 7, the RX8 has a 2 rotor engine , producing around 232Bhp with a naturally aspirated engine, capable of hitting 1000Bhp with the right upgrades.

Here’s a good drag tune for the RX8.

Engine1.3L Naturally-Aspirated 2-Rotor Rotary, 232 bhp (173 kW), 159 lb⋅ft (216 N·m)

Ahh yes, the 350z , a classic car that’s best for drifting, especially if you’re a beginner, you have tons of options to choose from when upgrading the car, including a rocket bunny kit.

The 350z is the best JDM car for drifting in forza horizon 4 for beginners, it has perfect control and will slide through the corners just like a knife slides through butter.

As you can see, I’m more of a work wheels fan so I’ve installed the work wheels, however, deep dish wheels and camber usually look really good on the 350z.

You can find a good drift tune for your 350z here.

Engine3.5L Naturally-Aspirated V6, 287 bhp (214 kW), 273 lb⋅ft (370 N·m)

Nissan 240x

I know most of you are drifting fanatics so trust me, there’s no better car for drifting than the classic Nissan 240sx, this car has incredible control and boasts enough power to slide smoothly through any type of corner.

The 240sx is a class JDM car in Forza Horizon 4, produced in 1993 and contains a naturally aspirated 4-cyl engine, producing almost 155BHP. Trust me, don’t go on the numbers , 155 seems a little lesser than the cars we’ve seen till now.

With a turbo and an engine upgrade, this car will even give the 350z a run for it’s money when it comes to drifting.

Here’s an awesome drift tune for the 240sx.

Honda NSX

The NSX is a very unique car, especially when it comes to one of the best legendary JDM cars in forza horizon 4, this car is an all rounder, it performs amazing in drag racing and even better when it comes to drifting.

That’s because the NSX is a mid engined car, which is the equivalent of saying that this car has the best control out of all the cars we’ve seen in this list, besides, this wouldn’t even be a valid list if I hadn’t included the NSX.

The incredible v6 producing almost 300BHP along with being mid engined is what makes this car so unique.

Here’s a good race tune for the NSX.

The EVO 8 is one of the best JDM cars ever produced, especially because of it’s I4 AWD configuration, the EVO 8 can even be used as a drift car but makes an even better drag race car.

When it comes to Forza Horizon 4, the EVO 8, when upgraded properly, makes for a very good rally car and can give tough competition to a GTR.

Sadly, the EVO X has been discontinued in real life, but it still lives on in forza as one of the best JDM cars, an overall well balanced car with plenty of speed and good looks.

Normally, you would expect the X to be popular in rally racing but it’s more known for it’s performance in drag racing and mountain drifting.
