Forza Horizon 4 Season Change: Spring Settlement

The singing birds and the green shoots of leaves in the trees means a new Spring season has arrived in Forza Horizon 4. We’re into the last stretch of Series 61, with players rushing to complete the last batch of events and claim their prizes.

There’s a mixed bag of machinery in the rewards pool this week, plus another duo of prizes for the series can be obtained by hitting 50% and 80% completion for the Spring playlist.

Money Burners

Just one car is available for completing the seasonal playlist this week: the 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa.

One of the most valuable cars ever made, the 250TR is highly desirable for rich collectors. Designed for sportscar racing, Ferrari would enjoy monumental success by taking home victory in famous races such as the Le Mans 24 Hours and Targa Florio. Under the hood is a 3.0-liter V12 providing 300hp due to changes in racing regulations mandating engine size.

Those looking for a car they can’t find in the Autoshow can also grab a Horizon Backstage Pass.

Spring’s Photo Challenge is all about getting down and dirty in the mud. #MuddyGoodTime wants you to snap any Extreme Offroad car taking a mud bath over at Mudkickers Adventure Park. Prizes for the seasonal championships range from the 2017 Ford Fiesta WRC to a humble Maserati Ghibli.

One car to go after is the 1965 Hoonicorn Ford Mustang “Hoonicorn V2”. This particular variant starred in the late Ken Block’s Gymkhana Ten, and is seen as the ultimate incarnation of his tire-slaying beast. The 6.7-liter NASCAR V8 has been treated to twin turbochargers that take power up to 1,400hp. Thanks to a custom four-wheel-drive system and super short gearing, this monster of a Mustang will pull huge skids all day without breaking a sweat.

You’ll need to score victory in the “Retro Hoonicorn Attack” championship to bag the V2.

There’s also one last round of Super7 to be completed before the next series arrives. Complete each of the seven cards and a fresh Wheelspin will come your way.

Forzathon Events

Step back in time to an era where sports saloons were kings of the street and of the race track as Retro Saloons are in the Forzathon spotlight. Pick from any of the machines in your garage get head out to kick things off.

Next, take your choosen sedan out on a long drive around the UK to really stretch its legs. If your car is fast enough, the 20 mile objective should fly by. After that, take to the skies in order to earn three Stars at the Broadway Windmill Danger Sign. You’ll need to tune your car to the max in order to reach the distances required for this one.

Finally, wrap up the series by dominating the streets and winning a Street Scene event at Edinburgh New Town.

Forzathon Shop

Two of the most fun cars imaginable take over the shop this week, being led by the 2013 Toyota GT86.

This affordable coupe was conceived as part of a joint venture between Toyota and Subaru, hence its “Toyobaru” nickname. By resurrecting the iconic 86 name, Toyota’s goal was not power or laptimes, but making a rewarding car to drive. The GT86 uses a 2.0-liter flat four sourced from Subaru and produces 197hp. Thanks to a limited-slip differential and low-grip tires, this car can pull slides at slower speeds than much more powerful rivals.

You’ll need 600 Forzathon Points for the GT86, which seems rather steep for a car meant to target less well-off enthusiasts.

On the more extreme end of the fun scale is the 2018 Mini X-Raid John Cooper Works Buggy.

The Dakar winners of Mini X-Raid decided to switch from its all-conquering Countryman to a bespoke buggy to keep up its streak. Ditching four-wheel drive has lead to quite significant weight savings which will aid traversing across the difficult terrain. The Mini uses a 3.0-liter turbocharged BMW diesel engine making 340hp, and provides plentiful torque for wrestling with sand dunes.

At 300FP, the Mini is much cheaper, and will also get you across any terrain at searing pace much better than more standard SUVs.

Novelty items include the Police Siren horn and the Dab emote.
