Forza Horizon 4 Season Change: Ford Brings a Rare Autumn Surprise

Forza Horizon 4 1 July 9, 2020 by

The cooler temperatures of Autumn mark the start of a fresh new season in Forza Horizon 4. A new batch of events is available across the UK along with some updated prizes.

This latest Playlist update brings back some older prizes for 50% and 80% completion. The big debut this week comes from one of the rarest Fords ever seen.

You can check out the latest content rundown below.

Ford’s Unicorn

Playlist completion prizes this week are dominated by returning content. First up is the 2011 McLaren 12C.

The first car to mark the rebirth of the Woking brand pulls no punches against its rivals. Using a 3.8-liter, twin-turbocharged V8, based on a Nissan unit but built and developed in-house, the 12C puts down 592hp. With a whole host of technology learned from the marque’s time in Formula 1, the 12C is more than capable of showing the Ferrari 458 a clean pair of heels.

Joining it is the rare Rossion Q1. Despite being an American car, the design and running gear can be traced back to the Noble M12. That running gear includes a 3.0-liter, twin-turbocharged Ford V6 packing 450hp. It’s rare, but the Q1 has the performance to potentially upset the establishment.

The latest Photo Challenge this week comes in the form of #HoonigansParadise. Your objective here is simple: snap any car from the Hoonigan brand in the Express North Rail Yard.

Over with the seasonal championships, prizes include the Mercedes E63 and the Ford SVT Raptor.

This week’s main spotlight shines on the 1970 Ford GT70. While the legendary GT40 and the wild GT90 concept are pretty famous, the GT70 is a car that you might not have heard of. It’s a small mid-engined coupe that Ford designed with rallying in mind, but was beset by problems. Out of a planned 500 unit homologation, only six were ever made, and just three managed to go racing. The project was ultimately scrapped following an unsuccessful campaign.

Powering the GT70 is a humble 2.0-liter engine making 200hp. With a weight of less than 1,700lb, the GT70 should be sufficiently quick.

If you want to experience this rare beast, you’ll need to win the “Up Your Street” championship.

Forzathon Events

This week’s Forzathon challenges look at one of the most extreme Lotus models ever: the 3-Eleven. Hop in to this roofless track toy to get rolling.

Next up, unleash the 3-Eleven’s performance and earn a total of 9 stars in Speed Zones. Afterwards, take advantage of the lightweight 3-Eleven’s agility by earning 15 Ultimate Near Miss Skills

Finally, leave your opponents in your wake by earning a Slingshot skill in a racing event and wrap up this week’s challenges.

Forzathon Shop

Hooning is on the agenda in the shop this week. Smoking its way to the front is the Ferrari 599 Formula Drift car.

This 599 is one of the more unusual cars to grace the drifting scene, but makes up for it in pure angry drama. The 6.0-liter V12 has been boosted by two superchargers, taking power beyond 900hp. With a wild widebody kit, the 599 will happily smoke its tires all day long.

You’ll have to come up with 600 Forzathon Points to grab the 599, but it will stand out against the established drift machines.

Joining it is the equally insane Ford Mustang “Hoonicorn”. This version was the star attraction in Gymkhana Ten. Making its tire shredding exploits possible is a 6.7-liter, twin-turbocharged V8, putting a dizzying 1,400hp to all four wheels.

The Hoonicorn will set you back just 450FP and is a perfect choice if you want to channel your inner Ken Block.

Novelty items available this week include the Patrol Hat and the Drum Fill horn.
