Forza Horizon 4 Season Change: Carrying Capacity

As nights begin to draw in earlier, a brand new Autumn season has kicked off on Forza Horizon 4. Along with muddy trails and wet roads, players are continuing their search for the latest events and claim more content.

Practicality is the name of the game for this week’s rewards, along with another duo of rewards for getting 50% and 80% completion on the Autumn seasonal playlist.

One car takes the spotlight for the playlist completion prizes: the 1992 Bugatti EB110 SS.

When the French marque was briefly taken under Italian ownership, the EB110 was built as a celebration of the 110th birthday of founder Ettore Bugatti. The flagship SS was the last car Bugatti made before they went bankrupt and was subsequently bought by Volkswagen.

Under the carbon chassis sits a 3.5-liter, quad-turbocharged V12 putting out 612hp. The four-wheel drive system allows the EB110 to reach nearly 220mph, which made it the fastest car in the world until it was completely outclassed by the McLaren F1.

If you’re searching for a car that’s more exclusive, then there’s another Horizon Backstage Pass available.

Autumn’s Photo Challenge continues the theme of co-operation. #FriendsInHighPlaces wants you to find another player or Drivatar and snap a picture over at the Glen Rannoch Mast. Ready your best weapons as the seasonal championship rewards pool features the Jeep Gladiator and Volvo Iron Knight.

One prize that stands above the parapet is the 2015 Audi RS6 Avant. One of the cornerstones of the super-wagon market, the third generation model is more complete than ever before.

Compared to its V10 predecessor, the RS6 may get accused of toning down the lunacy, but a tamer approach gives the big wagon even more breadth of ability. The old V10 has been replaced by a less powerful 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 with 552hp, but the increase in torque coupled with a reduction in weight to under 4,300lb puts the balance firmly in the newer cars favor.

With the venerable Quattro four-wheel drive at your disposal, the RS6 delivers unbreakable traction in any weather condition. In order to bring home the RS6, you’ll need to win the “Booing Saloons” championship first.

A season is not complete without a new batch of Super7 cards. If you can finish all seven challenges, you’ll win an Alfa Romeo Giulia Forza Edition.

Next, put the 8.0-liter V10 to its preferred use by earning a total of 10 Ultimate Speed Skills. You’ll have to employ some tuning know-how in order to reach the lofty speeds the objective requires. After that, demonstrate that the Viper can handle corners as well by winning 4 Road Racing Series Circuit events.

To finish off the challenges for this week, kick the tail end out and earn a total of 9 stars in Drift Zones.

Forzathon Shop

Two cars that appear to be on completely different scales but hold a lot of desirability are in the shop this week, with the 1990 Nissan Pulsar GTI-R leading the way.

The Group A era of rallying gave birth to legends including the legends such as the Lancia Delta Integrale and ST185 Toyota Celica, but the Nissan is often forgotten about in such a storied roster. Despite ending up outclassed during its tenure in the World Rally Championship, the road homologation would go on to become a cult hit.

For the road car, the Pulsar features the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine from a Nissan Silvia making 227hp. Coupled to Nissan’s famed ATTESA four-wheel drive system, the Pulsar is still quick even by the standards of today’s hot hatches.

You’ll need to cough up 599 Forzathon Points for the Nissan, but as a left-field hot hatch and homologation special, it remains an attractive option.

Mercedes brings an even more desirable option in the form of the 1954 300SL.

Nicknamed “The Gullwing” due to its upward-opening doors, the 300SL was also a leap forward in terms of styling, performance, and technology. The aerodynamic body allowed for unparalleled performance for the 1950s, as well as influence from racing which made it one of the fastest road cars of its time.

Its tube-frame chassis houses a 3.0-liter straight-six making a healthy 240hp. With a steel and aluminum body keeping weight under 3,000lb, the 300SL could do over 160mph.

The Merc is also expensive at 599FP, but you’ll save yourself millions of credits from trying to buy one from the Autoshow.

Clothing items for purchase are the Heart Slip-ons and the Snow Boots.
