When James Dean rolled a ’49 Merc in “Rebel Without a Cause” it reinforced the car’s already powerful status as an American icon. The Mercury Coupe is a true embodiment of the cars of that era. They were large, shapely, full of expressive detail built by craftsmen. Customized Mercury coupes were cruising the streets long before the term “low-rider” was ever coined. In fact, without the gads of customizers that chopped, channeled, sectioned, and frenched the headlights and taillights of these cars, the concept would never be the same. Lowering suspensions and removing chrome and exterior details started here with cars like the 1949 Mercury Coupe. You will find the ’49 Merc in the greatest of nostalgia films like “American Graffitti,” driven by The Pharaohs, or Craterface’s ‘49 Merc from “Grease.” You want menacing and sinister looks? You want the real deal cruiser? You want a 1949 Mercury Coupe.
— Official description [1]

The 1949 Mercury Coupe is a RWD coupe by Mercury featured in Forza Horizon 2 as part of the VIP Membership, and as standard in all subsequent Forza main titles.

Performance

Upgraded

In Forza Horizon 3, the Mercury Coupe can be upgraded with a 6.5L V12 engine swap along with an AWD Drivetrain conversion and Twin Turbo aspiration without going higher than C class. With such a build, the Mercury Coupe can complete the Drag Strip event in only 22 seconds, making it one of the fastest cars for drag racing in the game.[2]

It can also beat cars from higher classes in Showdown events with a C class build in Forza Horizon 3, as lower class cars are allowed to launch earlier, giving the Mercury Coupe a competitive edge over similar cars with better tire compounds.
