Forza Horizon 4 Season Change: Lexus Roars Into Autumn

Forza Horizon 4 10 October 1, 2020 by

Autumn officially returns to Forza Horizon 4 to kick off a new season and a new month. Among the falling leaves sits new content and new events around the UK.

A bruising V8 Lexus makes a commanding return to Horizon this week, along with more Playlist prizes for 50% and 80% completion. Let’s dive in to Autumn’s content rundown.

Lexus Makes a Striking Statement

A mixed bag of cars make up the Playlist prizes for Autumn this week. Sliding towards center stage is the Chevrolet Corvette Formula Drift #777.

Run by Matt Field, this C6 Corvette may look more restrained than other Formula Drift cars, but is no less wild. Underneath the widened body sits a 7.0-liter supercharged V8 putting out 1,050hp. The handling changes for drifting mean that the Vette will happily spend all day tearing its tires to shreds.

For those after a classic, there’s the Toyota 2000GT. Dubbed as Japan’s first supercar, the 2000GT put the world on notice with its striking design. The 2.0-liter straight-six puts out a quaint 150hp, but only has to lug around a weight of just over 2,500lb. As a result, the 2000GT gives its European counterparts a serious headache.

This week’s Photo Challenge theme is #HouseOfRod, where you’re required to snap a car from the Rods & Customs category alongside the church in Broadway village. Seasonal championships for Autumn include the Porsche 917 LH and 1992 Toyota Celica.

A very different car from Toyota’s ranks is the big prize this week. The 2015 Lexus RC-F was the response to the BMW M4 in the hot executive sports coupe market. Unlike the turbocharged BMW, Lexus has stuck with the atmospheric 5.0-liter V8, but boosted power to 467hp. However, at nearly 4,000lb, the RC-F is a heavy old bruiser to get the best out of.

The RC-F is available for winning the “Fully Loaded” championship.

Next head for the quarter mile in either car, and win 5 Drag Strip events in order to progress. Afterwards, hit the streets and earn victory in 3 Street Scene events.

Finally, flex your creative driving by earning 500,000 Skill Score to round of this week.

Forzathon Shop

It’s all about rarity this week in the shop lineup, with the quirky 1991 Peugeot 205 Rallye leading the way.

Billed as a cheaper alternative to the 205 GTI, the Rallye may be considered by some to be the cooler car. Stripped of creature comforts, the 205 Rallye weighs in at a smidge under 1,750lb. Despite the fact that the 1.3-liter engine only produces 100hp, the 205 Rallye has an impressive turn of pace. It’s a car that loves to be thrashed on windy country roads.

You will need to pony up a hefty 600 Forzathon Points for the 205, but you will have one of the best-kept secrets among warm hatches.

Joining it is the Maserati MC12 Forza Edition. The standard MC12 was built as a homologation for modern GT1 racing. Underneath sits detuned running gear from the Ferrari Enzo, meaning a thundering 6.0-liter V12 making 621hp. The Forza Edition also comes with a boost for Speed Skills.

At 350 Forzathon Points, the MC12 FE comes in relatively cheap, and is also one of the rarest Forza Edition cars to get your hands on.

This week’s novelty items are the Modern Race Helmet Black and the Cash Register horn.
