Forza Horizon 4’s Series 19 Update Adds Unmissable Rides

Several unmissable new rides have been added to Forza Horizon 4 as part of the Series 19 Update. Available now on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC, these new vehicles can be unlocked over the next month by completing events in the Festival Playlist – but one of the more eccentric rides can be earned starting today.

Return to LEGO Valley and head towards the northeast of this iconic brick-filled destination to participate in an all-new event that sees you behind-the-wheel of the 2019 LEGO Bugatti Chiron – attempting to outperform its blistering fast real-world counterpart. Beat it and you’ll find the new LEGO Speed Champion instantly added to your garage.

To participate in this event and unlock the car, you’ll naturally need to own the Forza Horizon 4 LEGO Speed Champions expansion and have already unlocked the Master Builder’s House. Those who don’t own the downloadable add-on can test drive the new 2019 LEGO Bugatti Chiron in this month’s Featured Rivals event.

Festival Playlist has four new exclusive cars to unlock over the next four weeks. From the return of Lexus to the debut of Aston Martin’s incredible Vulcan AMR Pro, accompanied by arrival of an all-new brand in the Forza franchise – Rover, and finally, a Ford Transit van that can be upgraded with a Formula 1 engine. You did indeed read that correctly!

Discover how to unlock all four vehicles below, accompanied by their official descriptions and screenshots from Turn 10 Studios:

2019 Aston Martin Vulcan AMR Pro

They call it Aston Martin’s wildest car ever. The pride of British supercars, indeed the first one, the Vulcan was first revealed in 2015 with an initial run of only 24 cars, but you can get your hands on the wheel of the latest model thanks to the Series 19 update.
The AMR Pro track package brings all of Aston Martin’s racing advances to bear in a sleek package, on a car that didn’t even see on-track competition until 2018, at the third Le Mans Racing Festival. The package includes an enhanced rear wing, large dive planes, arch louvres and turning vanes, which increase steering, downforce, and balance.

How To Unlock: Get the 2019 Aston Martin Vulcan AMR Pro by clocking at least 50% Completion in the Winter Festival Playlist season.

2010 Lexus LFA

A supercar from Lexus is a rare thing. The LFA was a Halo Car, meant to change the way Lexus made cars, with principles developed for the LFA trickling down to every other car that Lexus produced. The LFA itself didn’t stick around for long, but its influence is still felt in every Lexus built.
The car packs a 4.8L V10 that hit 0-60 in 3.6 seconds, a top speed of 202 mph, and boasts an incredibly unique driving experience. Toyota CEO Akio Toyoda believed that the ultimate Lexus should connect with its owner. That’s why the LFA came into being. The car is an aerodynamic miracle, as fun to feel as it is to drive.

How To Unlock: Earn the 2010 Lexus LFA by attaining at least 50% Completion in the Summer Festival Playlist season.

1984 Rover SD1

When the Specialist Division 1, or Rover 3500, was first designed by British Leyland as a successor to the P6, the key was simplicity. That meant a live rear axle instead of De Dion-type rear suspension and a redesigned Rover V8 which emphasized torque over horsepower, rather than the newer 2.2L four cylinder. It’s been called the best-designed British car ever, taking cues from the likes of Ferrari and Maserati, but was often plagued with production issues early in its run. As a result, by 1984, the SD1 had seen some cosmetic and mechanical changes, as well as an expansion to a four-cylinder model.

How To Unlock: Acquire the 1984 Rover SD1 by beating the “It's Never Over With a Rover” Seasonal Championship in Summer with Drivatars set to at least Expert difficulty.

1994 Ford Supervan3

First built in the 1970’s as promotional vehicles, the Supervan combined Ford Transit vans with sports car underpinnings, for some reason. It made its first appearance at Brands Hatch, before experiencing two more iterations between 1971 and 1994. That was the year that the Supervan 3 made its debut, sporting the V8 that would eventually be used in the Benetton F1 car – in a Transit van.

How To Unlock: Win the 1994 Ford Supervan3 by trouncing your opponents in the “Is It a Bird? Is it a Plane?” Seasonal Championship in Winter with at least Expert-level Drivatar difficulty.

The Eliminator Round 3 – Horizon Pursuit

New vehicles have been added to The Eliminator! Round 3 is all about speed and hot pursuit, with 13 new rides upgraded for maximum performance and suitably outfitted with patrol lights.

It’s time to chase down your opponents in-style and become a part of The Eliminati!
