Forza Horizon 4 Season Change: 57 Varieties

A new Summer season has rolled around again to kick off a fresh series in Forza Horizon 4. We’re in the opening stage of Series 57, with another round of prizes waiting to be claimed during the next four weeks.

There’s a bit of everything for everyone in a diverse pool of rewards, plus completing the full and seasonal playlists to 50% and 80% will yield more goodies.

Leading the Summer playlist completion prizes is the 2020 Jeep Gladiator.

Jeep returned to the pickup truck market after an absence of nearly 30 years, and the Gladiator is serious about reclaiming its rightful place. Using the Wrangler as a base, the top-spec Rubicon trim helps to retain the rugged go-anywhere ability that Jeeps are known for. There’s a hearty amount of power too, as the 3.6-liter V6 puts out 285hp to all four wheels.

If you’re in need of a bit more pace while on the dirt trails, there’s the 2007 Peugeot 207 Super 2000.

Unlike the full-fat turbocharged machines of the World Rally Championship, the Super 2000 regulations were to ensure more sustainable costs for privateers. The 207 is one of several entries built to these regulations.

Aerodyamics are less extreme than on WRC cars, but still add plenty of drama to the humdrum hatchback. Under the hood sits a 2.0-liter engine making 280hp sent through a four-wheel drive system that allows for rapid pace on any terrain.

Completing the full playlist will net you a Horizon Backstage Pass and a 1995 BMW 850CSi.

Arriving as the first Photo Challenge of the new series is #BroadShoulders. For this one, you’ll need a Classic Muscle Car and snap it over in the village of Broadway. Championship prizes are all about big power, including the Lamborghini Centenario and Chevrolet Nova FE.

The big standout comes in the timeless form of the 1987 Ferrari F40. Ferrari’s last car that was personally overseen by Enzo Ferrari himself is often argued as one of the greatest supercars ever made.

As one of the first road cars made from carbon-fiber, the Ferrari took weight saving to an extreme degree, including having paint so thin that the CF weave could be seen through it. Tipping the scales at under 3,000lb, the F40 also packed serious firepower under the hood. The 2.9-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 makes 478hp, which allowed the Prancing Horse to become the first production street car to do over 200mph.

If you want to bring the F40 home, you’ll need to win the “Is This The Way to Castelletto?” championship.

A new series means a new Monthly Rivals challenge. For this series, you’ll be wrestling the Porsche 906 Carrera 6 around Holyrood Park Circuit.

The latest deck of Super7 cards will let you keep your skills in top condition, and if you finish all seven cards you’ll win a Lamborghini Diablo GTR.

Forzathon Shop

Two different machines for two very different sides of car culture take over the shop this week, kicking off with the 1974 Hoonigan Ford Bronco.

The standard Bronco is already a cult icon as a rugged offroader, but the Hoonigan team decided to give this one a major makeover for the wife of the late Ken Block. For greater offroad use, the suspension has been completely rebuilt as well as incorporating a 3.5-inch increase in ride height.

Under the hood would normally sit a 6.4-liter Big Block V8, but Hoonigan have replaced it with a modern 5.0-liter Coyote motor out of a Mustang. With 435hp, this is far from the average working man’s Bronco.

At 599 Forzathon Points, buying the Bronco will leave a major dent in your wallet, but if you want to beat a Land Rover Defender on the roughest trails, this will get the job done.

Alongside the Ford is the 1985 Toyota Sprinter Trueno GT-Apex.

Although based on the ordinary Corolla, this AE86 would go on to become one of the most iconic Japanese cars of all time thanks to its starring role in the animated series Initial D. Being relatively affordable, the AE86 was a popular choice for drifters. Despite the 1.6-liter engine making 128hp in stock form, its eager chassis meant that it could pull slides without much effort, and its tunability would unlock serious potential.

The Toyota will also set you back 599 FP, but its role in helping to bring drifting to a mainstream audience can not be underestimated.

Clothing items for this week include the RTR Fun Haver White T-Shirt and the Golden Leather Jacket.
