FH4 Season Update | Series 6 - Summer

Thursday, February 14, 2019

As summer returns once again lets take a look at what is coming to Forza Horizon 4 in the Series 6 season change.

 

 

 

Over in the #Forzathon world, the summer season is bringing new events to earn #Forzathon points, and cool new stuff to spend those points on, including the 1980 Renault 5 Turbo Forza Edition and the 2016 Hoonigan Gymkhana 10 Ford Focus RS RX, among other items.

 

 

 

This week’s Car Pass cars features a mix of something old and something very new:

 

1959 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible

Named after the sophisticated French resort town patronized by the likes of Napoleon and Queen Victoria, the Biarritz convertible defined elegance and grace in the late automotive world of the 1950s. It also redefined the term “land yacht.” The car was almost 19 feet long and nearly seven feet wide. The huge tail fins, the tallest ever made, and the unique “rocketship” taillights were just a few of the styling cues that set this car apart. Powered by a 345 horsepower triple-carbureted 390 V8, this 5,000-pound luxury cruiser could almost reach 130 mph. Turning radius was a mere parking lot width of 24 feet and the air-ride suspension while providing a comfy ride gave the Biarritz its distinct “floatiness.”

 

 

 

2018 TVR Griffith

After 20 years, the return of the heraldic TVR brand brings a new member to the 200 mph plus club in the Griffith. The group of private investors who acquired the TVR brand back in 2013 have not gone out on a limb with the Griffith design, but created just what fans might have envisioned themselves. The Griffith is cut like the top exotics with sweeping, purposeful lines that create downforce and aid engine cooling. The optimal 50:50 weight distribution, helped in part by mounting the Cosworth V8 well behind the front axle, provides a base for handling that will make its top speed secondary to what it can do in the corners. Your first chance to drive the rebirth of TVR is right here.
