Forza Horizon 4 | Series 20 Update

Staff
Tuesday, March 10, 2020

Series 20 has arrived and it’s bringing the heat with a contemporary hyper-GT car, a vintage one-of-a-kind rocket, and a bar-raising film favorite. Get all the details below!

 

McLaren Speedtail

 

The name “Speedtail” should be taken seriously with this beauty. McLaren’s fastest car ever built is designed to be all slipstream, with aerodynamics playing into every feature, from the custom wheel covers to the single-piece rear chassis. What better way to take advantage of its 1000+ horsepower hybrid engine and reported 250 mph top speed?

 

This speed demon is available as a reward car for completing 50% of the Summer Seasonal Playlist. (Available between March 12 and March 19)

 

 

Napier Railton

 

 

In 1933, Reid Railton strapped a plane engine to the most rudimentary chassis he could, and the Napier-Railton was born.

 

This missile on wheels broke all kinds of records in the few years after that, most notably the all-time lap record at the Brooklands oval in England, which it held until the oval was repurposed for military use at the onset of World War II.

 

The Napier-Railton gets its name from its creator, Reid Railton, as well as its engine, a 24-liter W12 Napier airplane engine, the most powerful engine available at the time it was built. It’s a truly one-of-its-kind vehicle.

 

This unique wonder is obtainable by competing the Autumn Seasonal Championship “Cult Courier” (Available between March 19th and March 26th)

 

Toyota 2000GT

 

A halo car is designed to raise the bar of what an automaker can create, with the intention of allowing those designs to influence everything else the company builds. That’s the case with the 2000GT, which represented the first collaboration between Toyota and Yamaha. It served as a coming-out party for Japanese car manufacturers when it debuted in 1965, demonstrating that they could compete with their European counterparts in style and performance and raising Toyota’s profile above its relatively vanilla production history up to that point.

 

Inspired by Jaguar and originally intended for Nissan, the Toyota 2000GT is now the most expensive and collectible Japanese-designed car in the world. It was famously driven by Aki in the 1967 Bond film You Only Live Twice, with custom modifications designed to accommodate Sean Connery’s large frame.

 

Complete 50% of the Winter Seasonal Playlist to unlock this car. (Available between March 26th and April 2nd)

 

Those are the new cars available as rewards for this month. Below you’ll find all of the new features and story missions coming with the Series 20 update, courtesy of our support site.

 

 

NEW BUSINESS - EXPRESS DELIVERY

Welcome to Express Delivery, the Horizon Festival's brand-new ultra-fast delivery service!

This new, 9-chapter Horizon Business will allow you to unlock the very professional-looking Delivery Outfit.
