Forza Horizon 4 Season Change: Season of Goodwill

Autumn takes a hold over the UK for another week in Forza Horizon 4 during this Christmas period. If you’re unable to make it to the festivities in Mexico, there’s still plenty of activities to keep you busy from wrapping presents.

Its a mix and match of desirable cars and cosmetics this week, as well as more rewards waiting to be claimed from the 50% and 80% objectives in the seasonal playlist.

Jingle Bell Roll

Leading a very smoky set of prizes for seasonal completion is the Hoonigan Gymkhana 10 Ford Focus RS RX.

Originally built to run rallycross racing, this particular Focus has a starring role in Ken Block’s Gymkhana Ten. The 2.0-liter turbocharged engine puts out 600hp to all four wheels, and a flick of the handbrake will allow you to pull huge skids all day long. Thanks to very short gearing, the Focus can get back up to speed incredibly quickly.

If you need to slow down, there’s the Ferrari 250 California. Once one of the most expensive cars ever sold at auction, this 250 is extremely valuable in the eyes of collectors. The hand-crafted body puts the California as one of the best looking cars to come from Maranello. Under the hood sits a 3.0-liter V12 making a respectable 262hp, with the aim being about cruising along the Pacific Coast rather than tearing up mountain roads.

Drive home for Christmas with the latest Photo Challenge as it’s all about #Housewarming. For this objective, you’ll have to snap your car with the first house that you purchased at The Gables over in Broadway. Prizes for the seasonal championships are a mix of cars and cosmetics including the Caterham R500 Forza Edition and 2018 Honda Civic Type R.

One car to go for is the 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 RS. Based on the facelifted 991-generation 911, the most hardcore, track focused Porsche continues to improve on its formula.

Although changes under the skin are small, the venerable 4.0-liter flat-six now produces 515hp, which makes it the most powerful naturally aspirated 911 ever made. The tweaks outside are even more subtle but make huge differences. Changes to the aerodynamics now yield twice as much downforce as the pre-facelift version, allowing you to attack corners with even more confidence.

If you want the GT3 RS, you’ll first need to claim victory in the “Neunelfer” championship.

The latest Super7 offers up a big variety of festive presents for you to try your hand at beating. If you can finish all seven cars, you’ll win a Bentley Continental GT Forza Edition.

Forzathon Events

Forzathon looks towards a sports car icon that became successful everywhere, the 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS. Jump into the genesis of Porsche RS models to get started.

Up next, show off the pace of this classic 911 by earning a total of 12 stars from Speed Zones dotted around the festival. After that demonstrate the race winning pedigree of the RS by winning 3 Road Racing Series events.

Finish things off by getting to grips with the surprising rally capabilities of the 911 and winning 4 Dirt Racing Series events.

Forzathon Shop

Two very different approaches to sportiness are up for grabs in the shop, with the 2013 Bentley Continental GT Forza Edition commanding center stage.

Also the star prize of Super7 this week, the Continental GT Speed represents crushing pace with sublime luxury.

Despite Volkswagen underpinnings, the Continental still features the finest British craftsmanship in its materials. The 6.0-liter twin turbocharged W12 kicks out a impressive 620hp. Even with fourwheel drive and tipping the scales at over 5,100lb, the GT Speed will surprise you with its supercar pace while cosseting you in comfort. The Forza Edition available comes with an aggressive GT3 bodykit, rear wheel drive and a Clean Skills boost.

At 599 Forzathon Points, the Bentley will burn a hole in your wallet, but if you have enough points, it’ll save you time from doing the current Super7 challenges.

Turning back the clock takes us to the 1973 Renault Alpine A110. Shortly after aquiring the Alpine brand, Renault created one of its most iconic sports cars with the original A110. Its motorsport pedigree would give it international acclaim, including winning the inaugural World Rally Championship.

Its diminutive stature meant that the A110 didn’t need big power to give rapid pace in its era. Although it used a similar rear-engined layout to the Porsche 911, the Alpine uses a 1.6-liter inline-4 making just 123hp. However, a weight of under 1,600lb brings increased agility when tackling twisting roads.

The Alpine will also set you back 599 FP, and will give an old school way of driving that even the new one will struggle to match.

Latest clothes and novelty items are Santa’s Tash and a “The Planets – Jupiter” horn.
