Forza Horizon 4 Season Change: Nesting in Spring

The flowers are blossoming once again as Spring makes its return to the UK in Forza Horizon 4. Series 63 is now into the final stages with players making a last dash to wrap up all the events before the next series arrives.

Its a mixed bag in the prize pool for Spring, plus the seasonal playlist has more rewards available for those who can complete the 50% and 80% completion targets.

Speeding in the Rain

Only one car can be won in the playlist completion this week; the 2017 Alpine A110.

Resurrecting the Alpine name for this new sports car carries a huge burden of responsibility. The new A110 follows a different philosophy to its rivals and forgoes ultimate power in favor of light weight and driver involvement. The engine is lifted from the hot Renault Megane and develops 248hp, but can live with a Porsche Cayman in acceleration thanks to weighing just over 2,400lbs.

You can also pick up another Horizon Backstage Pass if you’re in need of a car that’s less easy to acquire.

The last Photo Challenge for the series sends you to the peaceful village of Broadway. #MillingAround wants you to snap your car over by the famous Broadway Windmill. You can also add some extra drama to your picture by launching your car off the Danger Sign.

Championship prizes for Spring include some big bruisers such as the 2018 Porsche Cayenne and the Holden VL Commodore Group A.

One car that stands out is the 1995 Ferrari F50. Replacing the iconic F40 was always going to be a tough task, and there has been some controversy over whether the F50 was really considered a failure.

Billed as an F1 car for the road, the F50 was originally going to use the 3.5 liter V12 seen in the 641 F1 racer. However, the engine grew in size to 4.7 liters and power dropped from 680hp to 513hp. Despite keeping links to F1, such as having the engine bolted directly to the carbon tub, the F50 couldn’t reach the lofty benchmarks of its predecessor.

To grab the F50 for yourself, you’ll need to win the “Back to the 90s” championship.

A Showcase Remix also returns to help bring the curtain down on the Series 63 events. “Taxi for Takeoff” puts you into Isha’s Austin FX4 taxi to do battle against a Deltawing aeroplane in a race to the festival.

Super7 offers up one last selection of community challenges for the current series for those who want to push their skills to the limit. Finish all seven cards and you’ll be rewarded with a Wheelspin

Forzathon Shop

This week’s shop lineup is all about art, with a pair of cars that could arguably be considered as worthy of display in a gallery.

The 1953 Maserati A6GCS kicks things off. This car almost never saw the light of day as Ferrari had a very restrictive contract with the design house at Pininfarina. A private dealer was able to get six units built for road racing competition in events such as the Mille Miglia.

Under the hand-crafted body sits a 2.0 liter straight-six putting out 170hp. Weighing in at less than 2,000lbs means the Maserati will be very lively in the corners, especially with 1950s suspension and tire technology.

You’ll need just a mere 150 Forzathon Points to get the A6GCS, and you can save yourself a few million credits from buying one in the Autoshow.

Something more modern comes in the form of the 2010 Aston Martin One-77.

This bespoke supercar caused a major stir with aggressive styling against the simple elegance of the rest of the range. Despite this, the One-77 is more than just a pretty face in a carbon fiber suit. Under the hood sits a bespoke 7.3 liter V12 making 750hp, making it one of the most powerful naturally aspirated cars ever made. With a top speed of 220mph, it also claims the record as the fastest Aston ever produced.

The One-77 is also worth 150FP, and will certainly make heads turn at a car meet with its looks and noise.

Latest avatar clothing additions are the Pink Top Hat and the Blue Biker Trousers.
