This Week’s Forza Horizon 4 Season Change: Transit of Winter

Forza Horizon 4 4 February 27, 2020 by

The weather has turned frightful once again, as Winter has settled over the UK for another week in Forza Horizon 4. Coinciding with the arrival of the latest snowy season is a new helping of content and events.

Horizon’s newest Playlist update drops another set of new and returning prizes for 50% and 80 completion. This week, players can get their hands on a new track-day hypercar, and a rather distinctive commercial vehicle.

SuperVan and Vulcan AMR Make Some Noise

Making its noisy debut this week is a new variant of the Aston Martin Vulcan. Like the Ferrari 599XX Evo, the Vulcan AMR Pro was sold as an upgrade package to existing Vulcan customers.

The main changes focus on aerodynamics, with a new twin deck rear wing, along with a modified front splitter. That results in a 25% increase in downforce over a standard Vulcan. Aston left the 7.0-liter V12 untouched, meaning a colossal 820hp is on tap for the icy conditions.

For those looking for driving a slice of racing history, there’s the Porsche 906 Carrera 6. In an era dominated by the battle between Ford and Ferrari, the 906 emerged as a surprise underdog. Despite lacking in ultimate power with its 210hp, 2.0-liter flat-six, the lightweight 906 makes up the deficit with agile handling.

Seasonal championship prizes for this week include the 2017 Alpine A110 and the Lotus 2-Eleven.

The big championship prize is for fans of fast vans. The Ford Transit SuperVan 3, is what happens when a Transit van (or rather a fiberglass replica in 7/8ths size) is combined with a Ford C100 Group C car. Although the SuperVan originally used an F1-derived, 3.5-liter Cosworth V8 that made 650hp, the current version has a less powerful 2.9-liter V6 in order to make it easier to maintain.

You can add the Transit to your collection by winning the championship “Is It A Bird? Is It A Plane?”

Forzathon Events

This week, Forzathon takes a look at one of the most iconic vehicles in gaming: the AMG M12S CST, also known as the Warthog. Jump in to Master Chief’s vehicle of choice to get started.

Next up, prove the Warthog’s rugged capabilities by earning 5 Wrecking Ball skills. Afterwards, pit the Warthog against the UK countryside and take victory in 3 Cross Country Series events.

To finish things off, put the Warthog through its paces and earn 3 stars in the Slate Quarry Speed Trap.

Forzathon Shop

This week’s shop lineup features a very large luxury limo and a very small Volkswagen.

The Quartz Regalia is a luxury super limo fit for royalty. At nearly 21 feet long, it commands respect on the roads that it travels. In order to haul its 5,600lb weight, the Regalia is equipped with a supercharged 7.2-liter V12 making 433hp.

You will need to spend 600 Forzathon Points on the Regalia. If you want to live like Prince Noctis in Final Fantasy XV, then the Regalia is a worthy choice.

If you want something smaller, there’s the 1967 Volkswagen Type 3 1600L. This was Wolfsburg’s attempt at making a practical family car based on the Beetle underpinnings.

The notchback design houses a rear-mounted 1.6-liter flat-four that makes just 65hp. Ultimate performance is not this car’s strong point, but its novelty and innovation is more and enough reason to drive one.

If you’re after a piece of Volkwagen history then this should be right up your street, but it will set you back a bruising 450 FP.

This week’s novelty items are the Pop and Lock emote and the Slide Whistle horn.
