Forza Horizon 4 Season Change: Toyota’s Spring Double

Forza Horizon 4 26 October 15, 2020 by

Spring is making another appearance this week, bringing a fresh season to Forza Horizon 4. Series 27 is now in the home stretch, but there’s one last helping of content before Series 28 arrives.

It’s double trouble from Toyota this week, as well as more Playlist prizes available for 50% and 80% completion. Let’s see what Spring has in store.

Toyota On The Double

Leading the way on the Playlist prizes is the 2009 Lexus IS-F. This is the result of the normally austere Lexus trying to beat the all-conquering BMW M3.

Along with its aggressive new stance, the IS-F receives a naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 that pushes 417hp. The IS-F also featured an 8-speed automatic, which was never seen before in a sports sedan.

Traveling back in time brings us to the 1939 Maserati 8CTF. During the pre-war grand prix era, Maserati built the 8CTF in an attempt to break the dominance of the Germans. Under the hood is a 3.0-liter, supercharged straight-eight, making 360hp. Despite mixed success, the 8CTF has become one of the more forgotten cars of classic grand pix racing.

Seasonal championship prizes for Spring include the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato and the Jaguar D-Type.

The big prize comes in the form of the 2013 Toyota GT86. In a bid to revive the iconic “86” name, Toyota partnered with Subaru to jointly develop the small coupe. The GT86 has a 2.0-liter Subaru flat-four and produces just 197hp. Ultimate performance is not why the GT86 was made, with its main goal to provide the most fun driving experience.

To get the GT86, you’ll need to win the “Sports Day” championship

Forzathon Shop

An iconic Mitsubishi takes center stage in the shop this week, with the 1988 Starion ESI-R.

The Starion is dripping with 80s’ style, and packs a 2.6-liter turbocharged engine that puts out 188hp in a playful, tunable chassis. It may have been overshadowed by the Evo, but the Starion is a performance icon that shouldn’t be overlooked.

At 600 Forzathon Points, the Starion is expensive, but its a JDM classic that should not be missed.

Another 80s icon up for grabs is the 1980 Renault 5 Turbo Forza Edition. The standard car was insane for a small hatchback, with Renault removing the back seats to make way for a mid-mounted, 1.4-liter turbocharged engine and a switch to rear-wheel-drive. Even though the R5 develops just 157hp, the short wheelbase will make it a serious handful in the bends. The Forza Edition also comes with a Skills boost.

At 350 FP, the Renault can be considered a bargain, especially for one of the most ludicrous hot hatches of the 1980s.

Clothing items this week are the Ken Block Race Suit and Helmet.
