Engine: 1.0 Litre / 55bhp FWD Class • 1 Lifespan: 12,500km Service Interval: 2,500km New: €6,000 Rent: €6/min
The least powerful car in the game, but far from being the least fun. In fact, the closest races are to be had when behind the wheel of this car. Certainly not suited to the faster tracks however.
XF GTi (XFG)
Engine: 1.3 Litre / 115bhp FWD Class • 2 Lifespan: 15,000km Service Interval: 3,000km New: €9,000 Rent: €10/min
This is the starter car of Live for Speed. Being a FWD with not too much power, it's a good car to learn your first racing skills with.
XR GT (XRG)
Engine: 1.8 Litre / 140bhp RWD Class • 2 Lifespan: 15,000km Service Interval: 3,000km New: €9,500 Rent: €10/min
Being a rear wheel driven car, but without excessive power to them, this car is great to get the feel for racing with a RWD. Learning to catch the balance in turns, it will prepare you for its bigger brother, the XR GT Turbo.
Engine: 1.3 Litre / 140bhp RWD Class • 3 Lifespan: 12,500km Service Interval: 2,500km New: €14,000 Rent: €15/min
With only 518 kg the LX4 is a pretty light car and is quite fast around the twisted S1 tracks. Compared to its bigger brother, the LX6, the LX4 is easy to drive and ideal for beginners to learn how to control a LX-style car.
Engine: 1.8 Litre / 190bhp RWD Class • 4 Lifespan: 9,000km Service Interval: 1,500km New: €25,000 Rent: €35/min
The "big brother" of the LX4 has a lot more power but is also slightly heavier. Due to the road type tyres the LX6 is quite tricky to drive, so you should practice with the LX4 first.
RB4 GT (RB4)
Engine: 2.0 Litre / 241bhp 4WD Class • 3 Lifespan: 15,000km Service Interval: 2,500km New: €18,000 Rent: €20/min
This four wheel drive car has a lot of torque and is therefore the ideal car for the rallycross courses. The RB4 is also fun to drive on the road tracks, but is slightly slower than the GT Turbo and FXO due to its heavy weight.
FXO Turbo (FXO)
Engine: 1.9 Litre / 234bhp FWD Class • 3 Lifespan: 15,000km Service Interval: 2,500km New: €19,000 Rent: €20/min
Many racers' favourite car as it is very accessible and fun, being a fast front wheel driven car. And because it is light, it is able to maintain a high speed right through the turn.
XR GT Turbo (XRT)
Engine: 2.0 Litre / 245bhp RWD Class • 3 Lifespan: 15,000km Service Interval: 2,500km New: €17,000 Rent: €20/min
Loaded with a 2 litre turbocharged engine, transferring its power to the rear, the XR GT Turbo has become one of the favorite cars in S1.
Engine: 2.0 Litre / 245bhp RWD Class • 4 Lifespan: 10,000km Service Interval: 2,000km New: €30,000 Rent: €40/min
Really existing prototype of a sportscar from Finland. It has the typical feeling of a mid-mounted (Saab and turbocharged) engine; tricky, but very rewarding.
Engine: 3.6 Litre / 360bhp RWD Class • 4 Lifespan: 10,000km Service Interval: 2,000km New: €40,000 Rent: €45/min
The flat 6 in the back of this car delivers a good 360 bhp that you can put down well due to the car having its weight in the back. Watch out in the corners though, its heavy back may overtake the front!
UF GTR (UFR)
Engine: 1.4 Litre / 160bhp FWD Class • 5 Lifespan: 7,500km Service Interval: 1,500km New: €100,000 Rent: €60/min
While it has less power than its competitor, the XF GTR, its lack of weight more than makes up for this. On twistier circuits it will eat the XF GTR (and a couple of sets of tyres), but loses out on the straights. Certainly requires smooth driving. Whoever said Minis were boring?
XF GTR (XFR)
Engine: 2.0 Litre / 240bhp FWD Class • 5 Lifespan: 7,500km Service Interval: 1,500km New: €110,000 Rent: €65/min
The most powerful FWD car in LFS, it brings a whole new meaning to the phrase "power understeer". Requires smooth driving. Is a competitor to the UF GTR.
FXO GTR (FXR)
Engine: 2.0 Litre / 490bhp 4WD Lifespan: • N/A • Service Interval: • N/A • • Not available for purchase • Rent: €105/min
The FXO GTR is a great car for somebody just getting used to the extra power offered by the GTR cars or for somebody who just wants to have some fun in the GTR class, but if you want wins and don't like long races you have to move to one of the rear-wheel drive GTR cars.
FZ50 GTR (FZR)
Engine: 3.6 Litre / 490bhp RWD Lifespan: • N/A • Service Interval: • N/A • • Not available for purchase • Rent: €100/min
This is what happens when a not-so-sane person looks at the FZ50 and says "Mmm, nice, but could do with a bit more power." 130bhp more to be exact. Like the XR GTR, it was given slicks, downforce, gorgeous looks and lightened, but just ended up better.
XR GTR (XRR)
Engine: 2.0 Litre / 490bhp RWD Lifespan: • N/A • Service Interval: • N/A • • Not available for purchase • Rent: €100/min
Is the XR GT Turbo not man enough for you? Slicks, wings, silly power and an angry face, this car has had the works done to it. Nobody knows what the LFS tuning division did to the turbocharger to get double the power out of the engine, but it works, and we are forever thankful.
Engine: 600cc / 64bhp RWD Class • 3 Lifespan: 7,500km Service Interval: 1,500km New: €40,000 Rent: €100/min
Based on the real MRT5 built by the McGill Racing Team and competing in the Formula SAE championship this lightweight car is ideal for autocross tracks and slow configurations. The MRT5 is fun to drive and reminds you of a kart although it has more power and a differential.
