Forza Horizon 4 Season Change: Classical Song

The rain clouds above the UK are dispersing to mark the arrival of a fresh Spring season in Forza Horizon 4. We’re now into the closing lap of Series 52 with one last batch of content to be claimed before the next series starts.

Prizes for this week take more of a classical theme, plus more rewards are up for grabs for those who complete the seasonal playlist to both 50% and 80%.

Rolling Back The Years

Only one car is available for the playlist completion rewards this week: the 2001 TVR Tuscan S.

One of the last cars to emerge from Blackpool was the most complete variant of the venerable Tuscan. Despite the styling retaining the signature TVR madness, a lot of work has been put into the chassis and suspension to tame the Tuscan’s wild handling.

Under the fibreglass body sits a 4.0-liter straight-six making a healthy 390hp, giving serious punch in a car weighing just over 2,400lb. Although there have been comprehensive changes to the handling, a lack of electronic stability systems mean you’ll need to be on top of your game to bring this unruly beast into line.

If you’re struggling to find any exclusive cars, there’s another Horizon Backstage Pass available

Channel your inner Ken Block for the last Photo Challenge of the current series in #KenBlockbuster. For this task, you’ll need to take a picture of any Hoonigan car in your garage. You can spice up your photos by attempting to utilize your gymkhana skills. Spring championship prizes feature a mix of cars and cosmetics including the Renault 5 Turbo and the Jeep Wrangler DeBerti Design.

The main highlight of the prize pool is the 1969 Ferrari Dino 246.

Originally intended to be part of a sub-brand for Maranello’s non-V12 cars, the Dino was named after Enzo’s late son. The entry level berlinetta was the first Ferrari road car to adopt a mid-engine layout, and featured much softer styling than any of the brands other models.

A substantial upgrade over the 206 it replaced, the 246 featured a 2.4 liter V6 that would go on to power the Lancia Stratos. Making 200hp, the Dino may not be powerful by today’s standards, but its effortlessly charming looks make it great for cruising.

To bring home the Dino, you’ll need to win the “MR Spotlight” championship.

A final set of Super7 cards will help you to bring the curtain down on Series 52. If you finish all seven challenges, you’ll get a Formula Drift Chevrolet Corvette delivered to your garage.

Forzathon Shop

It’s all about racing in the shop for this week, with one of the strangest drift cars leading the way.

A Ferrari 599 would normally be considered for blasting across countries at great speed in a symphony of V12 music. However, this particular 599 has been converted for competition use in the Formula Drift series.

Underneath the new aggressive bodykit, the 6.0-liter V12 has been fitted with twin superchargers so it now delivers over 900hp. With significant changes to the suspension and transmission, this 599 will happily spend all day converting its rear tires into a smoke show.

The drift Ferrari is a conveniently priced 599 Forzathon Points, and will prove a standout in any drifting meets over at Fortune Island’s mountain road.

Nissan also provides racing pedigree in the form of the 1995 Skyline GTR-LM Nismo.

Based on the R33 Skyline GT-R, the LM was the only road homologation variant built when the car was being built to GT1 regulations, and the wild wide body masks milder modifications under the skin.

The 2.6 liter twin turbocharged straight-six gets a power bump to 300hp, but will redline at a howling 10,000rpm. Nissan stripped out the ATTESA E-TS all-wheel-drive system in favor of a traditional rear-wheel-drive setup. The Forza Edition for sale also comes with an Event Influence boost.

This special GT-R is only 250FP, which makes this very rare machine a must-buy.

Clothing and novelty items for purchase are the “In The Hall of The Mountain King” horn and the Golden Brogues.
