This Forza Horizon 4 #Forzathon event started today at 7:30 a.m. PT and closes at 7:30 a.m. PT on February 28th.

As you should know by now, #Forzathon has changed pretty dramatically in the latest iteration of the game. Check out our Forza Horizon 4 #Forzathon primer to make sense of the new #Forzathon format if you’re not already familiar with it.

At any rate, Autumn is back and here we are with a week that showcases the 1993 Jaguar XJ220. The Forza Horizon 4 #Forzathon February 21-28th event gives you a chance to earn an extra 100 (or 200 with the VIP house) #Forzathon Points in this classic supercar! This Forza Horizon 4 #Forzathon event started today at 7:30 a.m. PT and closes at 7:30 a.m. PT on February 28th. In addition to the four new #Forzathon events, there are also a number of new seasonal races (including extra Fortune Island Autumn Season races), and PR stunts.

“Don’t Dream It, Drive It ” #Forzathon

Check out the complete Challenge list below:

  • The Saturday Club: Own and drive the 1993 Jaguar XJ220, a classic supercar that held the Nürburgring lap record for a production car in 1991.
  • Horses for Courses: Win 3 Dirt Trail events in your Jaguar XJ220. After all, it was originally intended to be a Group B rally car.
  • A Really Useful Engine: Drive the Jaguar XJ220 for a total of 20 miles (32 km). Believe it or not, its engine came from the MG Metro 6R4.
  • Born to Perform: Achieve Jaguar’s design goal by reaching 220 mph (354 km/h) in your Jaguar XJ220. Hence the 220 in its name!

NOTE: These challenges must be done in the order they appear in the list above. 

The Saturday Club

Unfortunately, you can’t purchase the 1993 Jaguar XJ220 as it’s a barn find. On that note, you can find it in East Ambleside. Once found, hop into it and you’ll be able to proceed to the next challenge.

Horses for Courses

Pretty easy stuff here as well. Filter out by Dirt Trail events and WIN three of them in the XJ220. You do have to win, so adjust your opponent difficulty as required.

A Really Useful Engine

You can either queue up some races or just drive around Great Britain or Fortune Island for 20 miles (32 km). Once you’ve done so, it’s time for some speed!

Born to Perform

If you haven’t already done so, upgrade the car to S2 class. You should be able to find S2948 tunes in the garage. Head over to the freeway and hit 220 mph (354 km/h) in the Jaguar XJ220 and you’ll snag your 100 (or 200) #Forzathon Points for the week.

#Forzathon Shop

The Autumn #Forzathon Shop has also been updated. This week, you can snag the 1963 Volkswagen Type 2 De Luxe Forza Edition for 450 FP and the rare 1984 Honda Civic CRX Mugen for 700 FP. Also up for grabs are the legendary Green Man Outfit and Chicken Suit Outfit for (presumabely) 600 FP a piece. As usual, you can pick up Wheelspins for 40 FP or Super Wheelspins for 150 FP each.
