A new season change has arrived in Forza Horizon 4. Following the Series 10 preview, the first batch of content has landed to accompany the Summer season.
With new events and cars, let’s dive in to what content is on offer.
Returnees to the Forefront
A new month means a reset for the Playlist. That also means new prizes are available.
Four cars are available for completing the Playlist and season to 50% and 80%. This week’s prizes include a limousine and a pure racing car.
New Events & Cars
Prizes this week are dominated by returning favorites. Leading the charge is the KTM X-Bow GT4.
Formerly an exclusive to the Forzathon Shop, this race car is one of the more unusual machines for tackling Britain. Powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine and weighing 2,350lb, the X-Bow GT4 should find a handy niche among the motorsport fans.
Joining it is the 2018 Honda Civic Type R. The FK8 generation Civic is one of the fastest front-wheel-drive hot hatches around. With 316 horsepower from its 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, the Civic will prove a riot to skid around the streets of Edinburgh.
The other prizes this week include a Bentley Continental GT Forza Edition and the Cadillac XTS Limo.
The big Caddy is not a car with performance in mind. As one of the longest cars in FH4, it isn’t the best handling one either. Weighing in at 5,500lb, the XTS is better suited to long winding roads, as well as being driven leisurely.
The modified Bentley comes with an aggressive GT3 bodykit and a Clean Skills boost for those looking for extra from their skill chains.
Leading the Seasonal championship prize pot is the 2014 Maserati Ghibli. The baby Maserati sedan returns from Forza Horizon 3 and can be acquired by winning the Summer Community Championship event.
A new Rivals event this month will let fans test drive the electric Rimac C_Two. The Croatian hypercar will be available as a prize later this month.

Forzathon turns its attention to Blackpool this week, with the spotlight shiningon TVR. Specifically, the challenges focus on the psychopath that is the Sagaris. Firstly, you’ll need to own and drive this mentalist machine.
The second objective will allow you to open up the straight-six engine, as you’ll need to hit a speed of 185mph. Next, try to tame the angry TVR and earn 15 Threading the Needle skills.
The last objective is a big one, you’ll need to win a Road Racing Series event on The Goliath to finish this week off.
The shop features a modern lineup this week. The headline car is the 2019 BMW Z4 M40i. This roadster last featured as a prize for completing the April Spring Season to 50%.
Powered by a turbocharged 3.0-liter straight-six, the 382 horsepower Z4 should provide adequate top-down performance. Costing 625 Forzathon Points, if you didn’t already get one in April, then look at spending your points somewhere else.
The other car this week is the Ford Mustang RTR #88. Another former seasonal prize, this custom drift Mustang packs a 1,000 horsepower V8. The Mustang also comes in at 625 FP, with those who missed out on getting one in March can have another chance to add it to their garage.
Clothing items available for purchase include the Sapphire Crown and Retro Abstract Leggings.
