Forza Horizon 4 Season Change: Roadsters Rock Spring

Forza Horizon 4 10 June 25, 2020 by

The Spring sun has appeared across the UK once more, heralding the beginning of a fresh season in Forza Horizon 4. A truncated Series 23 also comes to an end this week, with the last batch of content now available.

This week’s final Playlist update for Series 23 brings an updated set of new and returning prizes for 50% and 80% completion. June’s Toyota theme continues this week, with two generations of a classic mid-engined sports car.

Spring’s content rundown is listed below.

MR2 Doubles Up

Leading the Playlist prizes to finish Series 23 is the 1989 Toyota MR2 SC. This AW11 generation marks Toyota’s first production mid-engined sports car.

Built to square up to Mazda’s new MX-5, this particular AW11 has a supercharger fitted to the 1.6-liter engine. Although it produces just 145hp, the AW11 has a reputation for energetic handling. Rein in that eagerness, and the MR2 will be serious fun.

Moving away from Toyota is the Quartz Regalia. Made famous in Final Fantasy XV, this limousine will put a Rolls-Royce to shame. In order to move this royal beast, there’s a 7.2-liter supercharged V12 making 433hp. Despite this, the Regalia is far from a performance car.

This week’s seasonal championship prizes include the Ferrari 500M and the Mini Cooper JCW Convertible.

The main course from the seasonal championships this week is another MR2. This time it’s the second-generation 1995 Toyota MR2 GT. The SW20 MR2 received higher performance and alleged shades of Ferrari in the design. Under the hood lies a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine pushing over 240hp. With a short wheelbase, this MR2 will be a handful if you don’t treat it right.

In order to obtain the SW20, you’ll need to win the “Track Toyotas” championship.

Forzathon Events

This week, Forzathon looks at a golden era with the Spotlight shining on Retro Sports Cars. Jump in to one of the many options available to get started.

Next up, let the tail hang out as you slide your way to earning a total of 9 stars from Drift Zones. After that, head off to the races and take victory in a Road Racing Series event at Astmoor Heritage Circuit.

Finally, let your creative driving skills shine through, as you’ll need to earn a total of 250,000 Skill Score to finish this week off.

Forzathon Shop

The Forzathon Shop is all about race cars this week. Kicking things off is the extreme 2012 Ferrari 599XX Evolution.

Improving on the insane 599XX, the Evolution includes a greater focus on aerodynamics. The 6.0-liter V12 has been given a bump in power to produce 740hp. Employ some tuning skills, and you’ll be setting Speed Trap records in no time.

You’ll have to fork out 600 Forzathon Points for the 599. If you’re solely out to go and break records for the Speed Traps, then the 599 is the weapon of choice.

If you want a full-bore race car, there’s the 2018 KTM X-Bow GT4. Built to GT4 regulations, this KTM features a unique closed top roof and an aerodynamic package only slightly less extreme than you’d find on a GT3 car. With a 2.0-liter turbocharged Audi engine, the X-Bow produces just 326hp. However, the GT4 is designed more for the gentleman racer in mind.

At 450FP, the X-Bow is a cheaper proposition. If you want a race car, but are worried about the extreme nature, then the X-Bow may just be the answer.

Avatar cosmetics this week include the Hi-Vis Patrol Outfit and the Monster Energy Cap.
