This seems to be the month for the high-performance cars that were produced in America three decades ago. Recently, the official Twitter account of Forza gave us hints by showing short video clips. Each clip represents a car that is coming in the next Forza Horizon 4 update. As usual, the community got some clever people who normally managed to figure them out.
Hint number one (shown below) shows a short clip from the American comedy film called Wayne’s World. This one is the most obvious hint since we all associate Wayne’s World with the AMC Pacer. An American sports car, designed to be more economical due to the oil crises back in the 1970s. This car appeared in previous Forza titles such as Forza Horizon 3.
Hint two is a short clip from Jurassic Park, showing one of the main characters protecting himself from a velociraptor who suddenly appears next to him. Surprisingly, people have also named a car after the dinosaur. The Hennessey Velociraptor. A performance-tuned Ford Raptor, producing around 750 horsepower. This is a highly requested car in the community, especially that 6×6 version. Finally, the Mercedes G-class 6×6 might have its first rival.
Hint three is rather confusing to most people as it shows two jet fighters in the air whereas one starts pulling away. However, they’re flying Eurofighter Typhoons and, coincidentally, there’s also a “Typhoon” in the car world. The GMC Typhoon is an American sports SUV that was ahead of its time. It’s said to be one of the fastest SUV’s when it first came out, 1991. Also, a very rare car in the Forza franchise as it only appeared in Forza Motorsport 4 as a DLC.
Hint four is just as confusing as hint three. It shows a clip from the movie Twister. The video displays a cow caught by a cyclone, or as Forza fans would say, Syclone. This video could indicate the GMC Syclone, which carries the same engine as the Typhoon but shaped like a pick-up truck. The Syclone has made several appearances in Forza and would be a great addition in Forza Horizon 4 as well.
Forza Horizon 4’s update 28 livestream will be on air a week earlier than usual, October 12. However, the update will be out the regular time, which is around a week after the livestream.
