Forza Horizon 3 goes Peckham with its latest garage update

Fans of the classic BBC sitcom, Only Fools and Horses will be most familiar with the headline act in this week's Forza Horizon 3 garage update.

The crazy Reliant Robin van made famous by Del Trotter is heading down under for some three-wheeled fun. And probably some ridiculous handling and maybe even falling over. The beastly 28bhp machine will be taking on Horizon 3's finest on the beaches of Australia.

There is not a much better example of British vehicular eccentricity and thrift than the Reliant Supervan III. Nor, frankly, is there a better example of a vehicle more likely to find itself on its side after some aggressive driving. Reliant vehicles, like the Robin, Regal, and utilitarian Supervan, are three-wheeled and built around a motorcycle engine. Drivers only need have a motorcycle license to pilot a Reliant on public roads and even though 29 hp is not much power, it is enough to propel the diminutive ride to highway speeds. With even a spare wheel, seat belts, and a passenger seat as optional, you won't find much in the way of luxury in the Supervan III. What you will find is a drive like none other.

In the less ridiculous arena this week are a number of supercars from the likes of Audi, Aston Martin, Ferrari and Lamborghini, as well as a host of other more traditional Forza-esque vehicles. Check out the full rundown to see if your favorite has made the cut this week.

In the meantime, we're going to buy some new attire to hit the Aussie outback in.

  • Technically speaking, Del's was actually a Reliant Regal Supervan, not a Robin, but in common usage its the same thing.
