Forza Horizon 4 Season Change: Springtime Wrap Up

The festive spirit is kicking up a gear as attention begins to turn towards the holidays. To help out, the UK festival is welcoming in a new Spring season to Forza Horizon 4. We’re also into the last season of Series 55, with a last push for the remaining content for this week.

A sprinkling of Christmas cosmetics and some high power supercars are on the cards as prizes, as well as more rewards for finishing the seasonal playlist to 50% and 80% completion.

Playlist completion prizes are once again on the light side, but there’s an Elf outfit available for your avatar to get you in the holiday mood. If you are needing a car from the festival, there’s another Horizon Backstage Pass available as well.

The last Photo Challenge of the series takes you back to your very first house you purchased. #Housewarming wants you to snap any car you have outside your house over at The Gables over in Broadway. Championship prizes bring big speed machines including the Koenigsegg Jesko and Ferrari 250 GTO.

A highlight of the prize pool is the 2017 Ford GT. Released to complete surprise after being conceived in complete secrecy, the second generation GT marked the Blue Oval’s explosive return to the supercar game.

In order to cope in a stacked market, the GT brings over lots of racing technology for the road, including active aerodynamics, a carbon fibre and aluminium chassis and pushrod suspension. The 3.5-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 engine was subject to some controversy for a car of this calibre, but Ford has fought back by making it produce 647hp. As a result, the GT can give the European establishment a serious headache.

You’ll need to score victory in the “New Year New Me” championship if you’re to bring the Ford home.

Closing out the Playlist is a refreshed Showcase Remix event. “Contest of Giants” will see you charging over the Scottish Highlands in a Chevrolet Colorado pickup against a huge, intimidating hovercraft.

Even though the current series is almost over, Super7 provides even more challenges for those seeking a change from orthodox events. If you can complete all seven cards, you’ll be rewarded with a 2003 Renault Clio V6.

Forzathon Events

The latest Forzathon looks to Japan and puts the spotlight on one of its greatest ever cars: the 1992 Honda NSX Type R. Jump aboard this icon that changed supercars and head out to get started.

Up next, push that glorious V6 to its limit as you’ll need to hit a lofty speed of 175mph. Afterwards, show the competition how good the NSX can be in the bends by taking victory in 3 Road Racing Series Sprint events.

Last but not least, prove the Honda can work as an aircraft as you’ll have to earn a total of 10 Air Skills.

Forzathon Shop

It’s the very best of Britain in the shop, with the main stage headlined by the 2005 TVR Sagaris Forza Edition.

One of the last cars to come from Blackpool, the Sagaris is also regarded as TVR’s finest hour. Despite the outrageous styling, a lot of work has gone on behind the scenes to tame the rather unruly handling that previous models had.

As a result of extensive chassis development, the Sagaris will devour corners without taking out its driver. The firepower comes from a 4.0-liter straight-six packing 400hp in a car that tips the scales at under 2,400lb. In addition the Forza Edition also comes equipped with a Speed Skills boost.

This even more special Sagaris will set you back a hefty 599 Forzathon Points, but it’s a great opportunity to grab a very rare Forza Edition machine.

Another UK icon comes in the form of the 1999 Ford Racing Puma.

This small coupe was made as a homologation special for rallying, but only half of the planned run of 1,000 units were ever built. Sold exclusively in the UK, the Puma would go on to become a cult hit.

Despite having underpinnings from the humble Fiesta, the Puma’s 1.7-liter engine makes a healthy 153hp. The main perks come from its eager chassis and the demands that you thrash it as you thread down twisting roads.

This rare Puma will also cost you 599 FP, but in return you’ll get one of the most fun little coupes to drive fast.

Novelty items and wardrobe additions include the Sports-Luxe Trainers and the Clown Dance emote.
