Forza Horizon 4 Season Change: Settling Some Spring Scores

As the sun rises, and the rain clouds disperse, Spring has begun a brand new season in Forza Horizon 4. Series 51 is about to come to a close this week, and everyone is rushing to finish their playlists and collect their rewards.

It’s a mix of everything this week, plus a final set of prizes are waiting to be claimed for completing the Spring playlist to 50% and 80% in order to wrap up another series.

Ticking All The Options

There’s just one car up for grabs with the playlist completion prizes: the 2017 Alpine A110.

The first car Renault created to bring back the esteemed Alpine brand pays tribute to the 1960s original whilst bringing in modern technology. There are a few changes that differentiate the new A110 from the old one, with the main difference being a switch to a mid-engined layout rather than rear-engined.

A 1.8-liter turbocharged engine comes from the Megane RS, but here it produces 248hp. Although it may seem down on power, Alpine engineers worked extensively on bringing weight down. The vast majority of the body and chassis are aluminium, meaning the A110 only weighs just over 2,400lb. Add 248hp into the mix and you have a car capable of worrying the dominant Porsche Cayman.

There’s a new Horizon Backstage Pass available if you need to get any cars quickly before the series ends.

Pay a visit over to Broadway for the final Photo Challenge of Series 51. #MillingAround wants you to snap your current car over at the famous Broadway Windmill. You can also add some drama by leaping off the Danger Sign through the windmill. Championship prizes are a mix of off-roaders and high performance street specialists including the 2011 Ford F150 Raptor and Holden Commodore Group A.

A highlight prize is the 1995 Ferrari F50. This supercar is often forgotten about in Ferrari’s stable, with many deeming it a visual step backwards over the F40 it replaced.

Ferrari initially intended for the F50 to be a “Formula 1 car for the road”, including having the 3.5-liter V12 giving the firepower. Unfortunately, issues making the engine compatible in a road car meant the V12 grew to 4.7 liters and produced 513hp. Although the F50 was the fastest drop-top in the world when it was launched, it was ultimately eclipsed by its rivals.

If you want to have the F50 in your garage, you’ll need to win the “Back to the 90s” championship.

Wrap up the race events for the series with another Showcase Remix. “Taxi for Takeoff” puts you behind the wheel of Isha’s Austin taxi for a duel against a Deltawing aircraft to the festival site.

You can add to your tally of completed events with another set of Super7 cards this week. Finish all seven and you can add a Disco Chicken Suit to your avatar wardrobe.

Finally, wrap up Series 51 by getting two podium finishes in Road Racing Series events.

Forzathon Shop

Unicorns dominate the shop this week, highlighted by the 1953 Maserati A6GCS/53.

This beautiful coachbuilt machine almost never happened, due to Ferrari signing an exclusivity contract with Pininfarina. A Maserati dealer had to commission Pininfarina to build the hardtop bodies for the existing A6GCS chassis and created one of the prettiest cars ever made. With only six units ever built, rarity is also on the Maserati’s side.

Intended for sports car racing, the A6GCS features a 2.0-liter straight-six making 170hp. In a car that weighs under 2,000lb, it will prove to be a lively handful through corners.

You won’t need to fork out much for the Maserati at just 150 Forzathon Points, plus you’ll save a bundle of credits over buying one from the Autoshow.

Another rare beast that could be considered art is the 2010 Aston Martin One-77.

The flagship hyper-GT ditches the soft curves for more aggressive slashes and intakes in a bid to distance itself from simply being a pretty face. Underneath that carbon fibre skin and aluminium chassis lies a 7.3-liter V12 packing 750hp. At the time it was also the most powerful naturally aspirated engine in the world and would propel the One-77 to a top speed of 220mph. With 77 units built, it also remains one of the most exclusive Astons ever.

Surprisingly the One-77 is also quite cheap at 150 FP, and will prove a massive head-turner wherever you go around the UK.

Clothing for this week is the Pink Top Hat and the Blue Biker Trousers
