Forza Horizon 4 Season Change: Summer Party Night

As Summer returns for a fresh season in Forza Horizon 4, the mood across the UK has shifted towards the approach of Halloween. With Series 41 now up and running, the latest remix of events adopt a suitably spooky theme.

Its another mixed bag of prizes available this week, with both cars and Halloween cosmetics up for grabs. There’s also an updated set of festival and seasonal playlist prizes for 50% and 80% completion.

Haunted Hooliganism

There’s one particularly notable car available for the Summer seasonal playlist: the 1992 Alfa Romeo 155.

Although the Alfa appears no more humble than your average sedan, underneath it hides some serious racing pedigree. The 155 would go on to have a successful career in British and European touring car racing, with famous championship victories in DTM and BTCC. Under the hood sits a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine making 187hp, giving this four-wheel-drive sedan brisk performance.

To get you in the Halloween mood, there’s a Skeleton Morph Suit available for your wardrobe. Festival Playlist prizes feature a new Horizon Backstage Pass and the bonkers Mercedes CLK GTR.

Get ready for takeoff in the newest Summer Photo Challenge and do your best Top Gun impression. #FlightOfFancy wants you to snap your current car over at the Greendale Airstrip. Supercars dominate the seasonal championships this week, with prizes including the RAESR Tachyon Speed and the Porsche 918 Spyder.

One of the highlights is the more old-school Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV. The big Lambo’s runout special certainly doesn’t do quiet and subtle, thanks to an aggressive aero kit. Weight has also been stripped by 220lbs, giving this bull some new-found agility.

The Murcielago’s 6.5-liter V12, whose design dates back to the Miura, was also the last of its kind before the Aventador brought in a new V12. This monster in the Murcielago puts out 661hp and scary performance if you are not careful.

You’ll need to take victory in the “Sweet Lambos” championship to acquire the SV.

There’s a returning Showcase Remix event for those keen to play in the forest. “Motocross Purposes” straps you into an Ariel Nomad to battle against a team of dirt bikes.

Series 41’s Monthly Rivals event features the Mercedes W154 at Bamburgh Coast Circuit.

Summer also brings refreshed Super7 challenges for another week. Finish all seven cards to win the ballistic Rimac Concept Two.

To finish off, take the F40 for a long drive all around the UK. With the added racing touches to the Competizione, 24 miles will fly past.

Forzathon Shop

Its Little and Large in the shop this week, kicking off with the huge Lamborghini Urus Concept.

Unveiled to much controversy, the Urus was a preview of Lambo’s first SUV since the LM002. Sporting a very rakish coupe-esque roofline and sharp angles, the Urus concept presented a lot of sporting character. Lamborghini never specified what powered the concept Urus, but in FH4, it features a 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 similar to what would feature in the production car. In the concept, it has to make do with just 550hp.

At 100 Forzathon Points, the Urus concept is remarkably cheap, and will be a quick entry point to the “Sweet Lambos” championship event.

Over on the other side sits the 2017 Alpine A110. Reviving the fabled Alpine brand, the new A110 may draw on the style of the original, but is brought fully up to date for the modern age. Instead of aiming for big power, Alpine has focused on light weight and driving dynamics for the new A110.

With an all-aluminium body and chassis, the A110 tips the scales at just over 2400lb. As a result, performance is enough to rattle a Porsche Cayman, despite the 1.8-liter turbocharged engine making just 248hp.

The A110 will set you back a hefty 599 FP, but you’ll have much more fun in this than you would in the equivalent Germans.

Clothing and novelty items available are the Clock Tower horn and the Day of the Dead t-shirt.
