Forza Horizon 4 Season Change: Dirt Road Demolition

Temperatures are dropping and the dark clouds are gathering as Autumn comes round again to Forza Horizon 4. Battling through the rain won’t stop festivalgoers as they continue to hunt down the latest events and claim the waiting prizes.

It’s a very German look to the rewards pool this week, with a selection of modern and classic machines on offer including completing the seasonal playlist to the 50% and 80% targets.

German Engineering

Leading the seasonal playlist completion prizes is the 1967 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia.

Although billed as a sports car, the Ghia won over a legion of fans thanks to its looks. The design was conceived by Ghia, before the coachbuilders at Karmann would construct the body. Underneath is less glamorous, as the running gear and platform come from the Beetle. That means a 1.5-liter flat four making just 53hp.

Something with more muscle comes in the form of the Porsche 928 GTS. This grand tourer was meant to drive down sales of the 911 in the American market, but the rear-engined sports car would continue to endure.

The GTS is the final iteration and was one of the most expensive cars that Porsche made. Sadly the high price was what contributed to slow sales before production ended in 1995. It was also one of the most potent models, as the 5.4-liter V8 made a beefy 345hp.

Autumn’s Photo Challenge is all about a clash of eras. #RomanRoadster asks you to snap a Modern Sports Car over at the very medieval Mortimer Gardens. Championship prizes continue the German theme including the Auto Union Type D and Volkswagen Notchback.

One car that breaks away from that is the 2015 Lexus RC-F.

When BMW rebranded the M3 Coupe as the M4, Lexus had to respond in kind. The muscular RC inherits the same free-breathing 5.0-liter V8 from the IS-F but boosts power to 471hp. Although it can outgun an M4 on pure power, the RC-F still has to haul nearly 4,000lb, making its handling behavior more like a muscle car than a sports coupe.

In order to grab the Lexus, you’ll need to win the “Family Car Frenzy” championship first.

Wrap up the week by putting the Shelby’s handling to the test and winning a Road Racing Series event at Lakehurst Forest Sprint.

Forzathon Shop

Two very exclusive cars that were built in very limited numbers are in the shop for this week, with the 2010 Morgan Aero Supersports kicking things off.

The Morgan may come from an old school British factory in the Malvern hills, but the Supersports mixes old world charm with new world technology. Wooden frames are accompanied by a high-strength aluminum chassis and bodywork.

Its engine is also very modern, with a BMW-sourced 4.8-liter V8 producing 362hp. Combined with a 2,700lb weight and this targa-top muscle machine can hang with more powerful rivals.

At 100 Forzathon Points, the Morgan is a bargain and is a unique left-field choice for those looking for a British cruiser.

On the less quaint end of the scale is the 1999 Lamborghini Diablo GTR.

This was built to run in Lambo’s one-make racing series and is the precursor to the modern Super Trofeo championship. Using the Diablo GT as a base, weight was stripped out and the chassis underwent major changes to make it race ready. Along with aerodynamic enhancements, the GTR is one of the wildest Diablos ever made. The 6.0-liter V12 received minor tweaks but power goes up to nearly 600hp.

You will need to stump up considerably more for the Lambo at 599FP, but you’ll recieve a machine that can easily run to the limit without spitting you off if you make a tiny mistake.

Novelty and clothing items this week are the Mexican Hat Dance horn and the Day of the Dead Tee 2.
