Forza Horizon 4 Series 16 Preview: A Taste of Italy Comes to Britain

Forza Horizon 4 6 November 19, 2019 by

Playground Games has given us a sneak peek at what we can expect in the next upcoming Forza Horizon 4 update. Series 16 is set to bring a taste of Italy to the UK with the latest content and events.

The latest update is expected to arrive tomorrow, November 20, bringing a set of four new cars. Read on further to see what will be arriving in Series 16.

New Reward Cars

The latest cars are all Italian supercars, with a classic Le Mans racer thrown in for good measure. The new machines are as follows:

  • 2019 Ferrari 488 Pista
  • 2018 ATS GT
  • 1999 Lamborghini Diablo GTR
  • 1970 Ferrari 512 S

The spotlight car for this update is easily the Ferrari 488 Pista, officially confirmed after this week’s subtle teaser.

One of the most hardcore models Ferrari has ever produced, the Pista features a 198lb weight reduction compared to a standard 488. Aerodynamics have been heavily reworked to provide a lot more downforce on track.

Power comes from Maranello’s most powerful V8 engine. The 3.9-liter twin turbocharged unit has been tweaked to produce 711hp. Combined with a raft of handling upgrades, and the 488 Pista will pose a serious threat to the Mclaren 720S.

Sticking with the Prancing Horse, the next car is the 1970 Ferrari 512 S. This car was the main rival to the all-conquering Porsche 917 at the famous Le Mans 24 Hours race.

This legendary prototype bears a 5.0-liter V12 and produces 560hp. With a slippery, lightweight body, the 512 will easily surpass 200mph. Players can now compare the and contrast the 512 with the 917LH racing across the UK.

A surprise reveal was the 2018 ATS GT. Although this car is styled and produced in Italy, the ATS actually has a very British heart. The GT borrows the running gear from the Mclaren 12C, meaning a 3.8-liter twin turbocharged V8 with over 600hp.

The final car revealed is the 1999 Lamborghini Diablo GTR. Built as a fully fledged GT racing machine, the Diablo GTR takes the already insane Diablo and turns it up to eleven. The 6.0-liter V12 produces a hefty 590hp, and the aero changes should help keep this bull in check through the corners.

With just 40 units built, the GTR is a rare beast, and will soon grace the Horizon festival with its menace.

New Showcase Remix and Online Car Restrictions

A new Showcase Remix event will be coming to FH4 for the Winter Season. “Morning Rush” will see players take on the iconic Flying Scotsman in a race to Edinburgh. The weapon of choice this time around, is an upgraded Austin FX4 taxi.

Playground also confirmed long requested changes to Online Adventure and Rivals by bringing in restrictions on certain cars. Two particular offenders name-checked include the Hot Wheels Bone Shaker and the Top Gear Track-tor. The studio confirmed those two cars will still be available to use throughout the rest of FH4.

Future Content

In what is possibly the biggest bombshell from the stream, PG have confirmed that Toyota, absent from Forza since 2017, will be returning to the franchise. We’ve got more on the big announcement here.

Be sure to stay tuned for our full breakdown of Series 16 when the update drops, along with our Seasonal Events roundup on Thursday.
