Forza Horizon 4 got the Series 17 update on December 12th. Along with it returned the long-awaited Toyota and the 1997 Toyota Supra RZ for beginners. That was not all! A garage full of Renault favorites enters the game as reward cars and the much-missed muscle of the 1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator. The name of the latest game mode- “The Eliminator” comes to Forza Horizon 4. It is a fantastic battle royale of racing that surely must be experienced to believe. And if you think that’s not enough, there are also a couple of showcase remixes that are worth a run.
A New Mode in Forza Horizon 4
“The Eliminator” brings battle royale to Forza Horizon 4. It is a new game mode available for free to all the players. Up to 72 players face off in Britain’s open-world within a set arena boundary. They face-off eliminating one another in head-to-head races to have a chance to pick up rare Car Drops and earn new upgrades. Arena walls will contract throughout the game, which forces the players to get closer until a final white-knuckle race within the survivors determines the winner.
Cars introduced in Forza Horizon 4
1998 Toyota Supra RZ
The Toyota Supra always drew a fine line between Japanese performance and luxury. It checked all the boxes that JDM fans listed, and it found fortune and fame on the big screen. At the heart of this elegant, easily able to turn beast, is the heartthrob of JDM lovers, the 2JZ-GTE. It is a motor that is the stuff of legend and, with a little massaging, can generate tons and tons of sonorous horsepower instantly. Here we have the top of the line model from the past year of production (in the U.S.). The latest/fourth generation of the Supra was unmatched in looks, and the resale values have soared sky-high. In the time when RWD luxury sports’ coupes from Japan are the dying breed, the Supra RZ stands tall against anything that dares to step closer to its considerable gait.
1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator
The 1970 Mercury Cougar Eliminator is a big cat bruiser from the height of the muscle car craze, tearing off of the most successful pony car formula of the Mustang- Cougar’s little brother. The functional ram-air intake on the hood can’t hide the massive, NASCAR-inspired 428 Super Cobra Jet engine. Similar to many muscle cars of that era, Mercury severely underrated the Eliminator’s engine. And the 428 big-block was just good for more than 400 HP out of the box.
We can’t miss the Eliminator’s blacked-out grille and headlight covers, bold spoiler, and eye-searing color combinations like Lime Green and Competition Orange. The Eliminator was Larry Shinoda’s vision, who was the father of the Boss 302 Mustang. His work had previously inspired the 1963 Corvette Stingray. The Eliminator is a real threat for sure on the track or at the stoplights. So it is better to get out of the way if an eliminator looms in your rear-view mirrors.
2017 Alpine A110
It is pronounced as “Al-peen,” and is named for the driving type Alpine founder Jean Rédélé modeled his cars to adapt for. The last Alpine A610 rolled off 24 years ago. The new A110 was designed with a primary goal of Lightness in mind. Throughout the A110, from its all-aluminum chassis and all-aluminum body to the integrated components, the A110 delivers weight savings, efficiency, and agility. Weighs less than 2,500 pounds, having a rear/mid-engine puts the Alpine squarely facing the tough competitors like the Audi TT or Porsche Cayman. Drive through the mountain roads and find out for yourself if Colin Chapman saying, “Simplify, then add lightness,” is right in his part.
2007 Renault Clio RS 197
It is a bit of a stretch to compare a screaming F1 car with a hot hatch like little Clio directly, but Renault is trying hard to introduce a bit of excitement of their F1 program into the new hatch- RS 197. For instance, take the rear blown diffuser—it is unlikely that the Clio needs its downforce, but it is definitely exciting. The Clio has several aero tweaks like this, and it is sufficient to say that their main impact is the look- the look is super cool. The actual on-track performance can’t be compared to an open-wheeler, the close to 200-HP naturally aspirated 2-liter engine under the hood is responsive and is downright fun in such a small car.
It may sound like cliché, but Clio’s performance can only be compared to a go-kart, having sharp and agile handling and a few bad habits. Throw the RS 197 real-hard into a corner, and instead of the drama, the RS 197 hunkers down and powers through. Renault’s several years of experience making-up Clios show through in this extraordinary version of the third-generation car, ever since the legendary Clio Williams to all the various RS models that followed.
2008 Renault Megane R26.R
There are a couple of ways to put a car model in the list of cars built for the track. First is when you can order it with an optional roll cage. Second and not less important and even more impressive is when the car recorded the fastest lap within its class around the ill-famed Nürburgring. The Megane R26.R claims both. In 2008, at 8’17″(8 minutes 17 seconds), it was the fastest front-wheel production car. Only 450 models were built as the extreme version of the popular Megane. This turned the already fast Renault Sport 230 F1 Team R26 into true tightly-packed track weaponry.
2016 Renault Clio R.S. 16 Concept
It looks like the Clio R.S.16 is stripped down due to the lack of a back seat and an A.C, or is it loaded since it is packed with the performance from the Renault parts bin? Getting straight to the specifications sheet delivers a clear judgment on the build. Renault took the 271-HP turbo four-cylinder from the Megane RS 275 Trophy-R model, along with braking components and key suspension and then filled them in to a small package of the Clio. Having a stout aero kit, an appropriate flare of the Clio Cup rear diffuser, and the actual flares to contain the enormous 19-inch wheels, this Concept properly celebrated the 40th anniversary of the most loved RS model.
2018 Renault Megane R.S
Among Megane’s brethren, who are known for their plenty of front-wheel-drive powered fun, suspension stability, and the chassis to put that power to good use. In the competition, many Europeans (not sold in the U.S.) would argue that Megane R.S. is the best when compared with cars like the Ford Focus RS and Honda Civic Type-R. It is undoubtedly in the same class as of these heraldic hot hatches. This alone should make it worth a drive.
