  • RB4 GT (RB4) - Four-wheel drive, front-engined coupe, similar to a Toyota Supra or Celica GT4
  • FXO Turbo (FXO) - Front-wheel drive, front-engined coupe, similar to the Vauxhall/Opel Astra Coupe
  • LX4 - Rear-wheel drive, front engined, LFS gets it's very own Lotus Seven replica, not too dissimilar to the Catermhams and Westfields of this world
  • LX6 - Much like the LX4, this sports a more powerful engine, although this weighs it down more you'd never realise given the way it accelerates
  • MRT5 (MRT) - Small open-wheel racecar somewhat larger than a kart, based on the real MRT5 built by the McGill Racing Team to compete in the Formula SAE championship
  • Formula BMW (FBM) - Formula BMW FB02

It is worth noting that in various leagues etc. the term "TBO" is used. This is simply class of 3 cars and includes the RB4, FXO and XRT.
