This Week’s Forza Horizon 4 Season Change: Autumn Gets Electrified

Autumn has taken a hold of the UK once again in Forza Horizon 4. Players will be keen to get their hands on the latest new and returning content this week.

A new update for the Festival Playlist brings fresh prizes for 50% and 80% completion. This week marks the debut of a shocking new Volkswagen.

Read on below for the latest events.

Diving into the History Books

A hardcore hot hatch and an extreme Swedish hypercar lead the Playlist prizes for this week.

The 2012 Mini John Cooper Works GP is one of the most track focused hot hatches around. Using lightweight materials, and ditching the rear seats, the JCW GP drops a healthy 144lb against a standard Cooper S. Power from the Mini’s turbocharged 1.6-liter engine is up from 208 to 215 horsepower. Combined with the revised chassis, this Mini will be fun to throw around the countryside roads.

The 2015 Koenigsegg One:1 is a very different animal. This is one of the most insane hypercars ever made. It’s party trick comes from a power to weight ratio of 1:1. The twin turbocharged 5.0-liter V8 makes a dizzying 1,360 horsepower, which will propel this 3,000lb monster well north of 250mph.

The Mercedes E63 AMG and Deberti Design Jeep Wrangler form the Seasonal championship prize pot.

The main talking point is the debut of the Volkswagen I.D. R. VW’s record breaking electric racer comes to Horizon in Pikes Peak specification. The twin electric motors produce 670 horsepower, and the extreme aero package will ensure the I.D. R will flatten any hill climb in its path. Fortune Island’s mountain road section awaits.

Forzathon Events

Continuing the theme of anniversary celebrations, Forzathon turns to the anniversary of Forza Horizon 2, with the Lamborghini Huracan taking the spotlight. Own and drive this baby bull to get things rolling.

Next, get destructive and earn a Wrecking Ball skill. Channel your creative driving for the third objective, as you’ll need a total of 1 million Skill Score to progress.

Finish things off by taking the Huracan for a road trip. With a target distance of 8 miles, the final objective should fly past.

Forzathon Shop

Grand touring is the main theme of the shop lineup this week. Leading the charge is the 2019 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera.

Possibly the ultimate GT crusier, the DBS packs plenty of style and colossal firepower. The 5.2-liter twin turbocharged V12 delivers 715 horsepower to the rear wheels for those after tire destruction.

Costing a hefty 575 Forzathon Points, if you missed the DBS during it’s last appearance, now is the time to pick one up.

The 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door is a curvy sports sedan for those who wanted extra practicality from the two-door AMG GT. With 640 horsepower from a twin turbocharged 4.0-liter V8, the GT will cover ground quickly and with brutal efficiency.

The GT will set you back 500 FP, and could prove a fun alternative to other super sedans.

This weeks clothing items are the Red Biker Jersey and the Golden Leather Jacket.
