Forza Horizon 4 Season Change: Singer Tops The Summer Charts

The world may be focusing on the new generation consoles, but players of Forza Horizon 4 will still be keeping busy in the newest Summer season. Series 29 is now officially underway, bringing more events and prizes to players around the UK.

As a very special Porsche 911 makes its way to the festival, there’s also more prizes in the Playlist for 50% and 80% completion. With a jam-packed offering for Summer, let’s dive right in.

Singer’s Debut Hit

A big talking point in the Playlist prizes this week is a classic Porsche 911. This 911 in particular is what’s known as a “resto-mod”, courtesy of an American firm Singer.

Called the Design and Lightweighting Study, or DLS, this Singer is quite possibly the ultimate resto-modded 911. Much like the Guntherwerks 400R, Singer has given the 911 thoroughly modern components — not least of which is a fully carbon fiber body. Underneath the tail of that is a 4.0-liter flat-six making 493hp. Modern suspension and a weight of just over 2,300lb mean this old dog is more than capable of new tricks.

On the more utilitarian side is the Hummer H1 Open Top. The Hummer is one of the most commanding off-roaders to hit the streets and will intimidate anyone that gets in its way. If you’re after performance, then look away, as the 7,500lb Hummer makes just 300hp from its 6.6-liter turbocharged diesel V8.

The rest of the Playlist prizes include another Horizon Backstage Pass and a Jeep Wrangler modified by DeBerti Design. Seasonal championship prizes this week include the Lotus 3-Eleven and the BMW M3 GTS.

One of the more notable prizes is the Range Rover Velar. Occupying the space between the Evoque and the RR Sport, the Velar is one of the most road-focused Range Rovers ever built, sharing underpinnings with the Jaguar F-Pace. The engine is also a Jaguar-sourced item: a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 pushing 380hp. Although the Velar will tackle off-road areas with ease, it’s more at home out on the open road.

You can add the Velar to your collection by winning the “Roving Eye” Trial event.

Series 29’s first Photo Challenge is a group affair. #HeadlineTrio requires you to picture yourself with two other players or Drivatars at the main festival stage.

There’s also a fresh Showcase Remix on the cards. “Quaint Village Rush” aims to recapture memories of Forza Horizon 3 by putting you in a Lamborghini Centenario to race against the “Delta Wing” aircraft.

Forzathon Events

Forzathon puts the spotlight on arguably the greatest supercar ever created: the McLaren F1. Climb aboard the legend to get started.

Next up, head for the races and showcase the F1’S motorsport pedigree by winning two Road Racing Series Circuit events. Afterwards, unleash the F1’s potential by earning 15 Ultimate Speed Skills.

Finally, test your endurance by taking the F1 to victory in a Street Scene event at The Marathon to bring this week’s challenges to a close.

Forzathon Shop

McLaren also headlines the shop this week with a much more modern machine, in the shape of the 2019 McLaren 720S Spider.

Lopping the roof off the already bonkers fast 720S has done little to compromise the performance. Despite an additional 200lb weight penalty, the 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 will still propel the 711hp McLaren to north of 210mph. With technology inspired by racing, the 720S will also eat up the corners.

At 600F Forzathon Points, the 720S will be an expensive acquisition, but you’ll be the one having the last laugh when the McLaren leaves the Italians in its wake.

Those after more a more dirty way to have fun can look to the 1972 Chevrolet “Napalm Nova”. Tuned by Hoonigan, this Nova has been built to demolish the drag strip. Following the classic muscle car tradition, Hoonigan has given the Nova a beastly 7.4-liter V8 with 475hp. With no other luxuries, the Nova can focus purely on beating the quarter mile.

You’ll need to fork out 350 FP for the Nova, which will save you a lot of trouble of trying to get one from a wheelspin.

Hoonigan-themed clothing items for purchase include the Ken Block Race Suit and Helmet.
