Forza Horizon 4 Season Change: Firebird’s Spring Nest

Forza Horizon 4 0 April 29, 2021 by

A brand new Spring season has kicked off another week in Forza Horizon 4. We’re now entering the final lap for Series 34, with the final content batch of the series now available.

This week, the first generation of an iconic Pontiac arrives, along with more Festival Playlist prizes for 50% and 80% completion.

Firebird Rising

Seasonal completion prizes once again have two cars up for grabs, with the 2003 Renault Sport Clio V6 leading the way.

This mad hatchback channels the spirit of the classic Renault 5 Turbo by putting a large, powerful engine where the back seats should be. That engine is a meaty 3.0-liter V6 making 251hp. To compensate for the change in engine layout, Renault fitted the Clio with an aggressive widebody and made it rear-wheel drive. With a very short wheelbase, the Clio will be lively through the bends.

If you’re after big speed but with environmental credentials, there’s the Volkswagen I.D. R. This prototype racer was designed as a flagship showcase for VW’s electric I.D. range. Under the skin are two electric motors making a combined 670hp. The I.D. R shown is in Pikes Peak configuration, where it holds the outright course record.

Finishing the Photo Challenges for Series 34 is #Trainspotters. You’ll need to head out to snap your car at Glenfinnan Viaduct for this one. Over at the seasonal championships, theres an opportunity to win an Alien Morph Suit and a Porsche 906.

The main course for this week is the arrival of the 1968 Pontiac Firebird. This first-generation muscle car is the sister to the Chevrolet Camaro. Despite a similar silhouette, the Firebird is more aerodynamic. Under the hood sits a 6.6-liter V8 making a healthy 335hp. With a revised chassis and suspension from the Camaro, the Firebird makes a strong enough case to go in its own direction.

To get the Firebird, you’ll have to win the “Phoenix From The Ashes” championship.

If you want to do a Showcase Remix, there’s another chance to attack “Commuter Blues”. For this race, you’ll be strapped into a Porsche Macan Turbo, and will need to beat the Flying Scotsman in a race to Edinburgh.

The final set of Super7 challenges for Series 34 is now available. Finish all seven rounds and you’ll get a Disco Chicken Suit as a reward.

Forzathon Events

Forzathon looks at one of the greatest British cars of all time this week: the 1965 Mini Cooper S. Squeeze yourself into this tiny machine to get rolling.

Next up, prove the Mini’s rallying pedigree by winning two Dirt Racing Series events. Afterwards, demonstrate the tarmac capabilities as well by winning two Road Racing Series events.

Finally, wrap up this week by earning a total of 75,000 Skill Score. The Mini’s agile handling and light weight should help build big numbers.

Forzathon Shop

Hoonigan is smoking out the shop this week, with its RS200 Evolution on the main stage.

This Group B monster has been made even more insane with the modifications done by Hoonigan. The 2.1-liter turbocharged engine now produces over 750hp. To cope with the increased power, the RS200 has been fitted with a six-speed transmission and heavily modified suspension.

If that sounds like your sort of thing, the RS200 costs an eye-watering 999 Forzathon Points. We recommend scouring the Auction House instead for a better deal though.

For those after a car with presence, none come close to the Hummer H1 Alpha. The sheer size of the H1 on British roads will definitely let people know you mean business. You won’t be going anywhere fast in the Hummer unfortunately; despite having a 6.6-liter, turbocharged diesel V8, the H1 only has 300hp to move over 8,000lb of American bulk.

At 200FP, the H1 is one of the cheapest cars to arrive in the shop. If you buy one, you’ll be almost unstoppable once you get moving.

Novelty items available include the Best Mates emote and the Halo Theme horn.
