It was a Forzathon Shop item I believe, you can maybe find one in the auction house, but last time I checked they were seriously expensive.

If anyone's interested, this is pretty useful:



Easy way to get some FE cars and money. Protip though, don't buy the cars from auction house to upgrade, because 99% of the time they will already have the prizes claimed.
What do you have to do to unlock to car / cash? I can’t figure it out.
Use a car to get skill points (drift/destroy/skill chain etc) and then it when you get about 30 points you can go to the skill point chain in the car you're using and the top one and it then gives you the car

Thanks for that. I had a couple of the cars and 46 points so I am now several hundred thousand better off!

A good way to rack up skill points is to get a fast 4x4 and stomp around the beach dunes getting air, crash landings, kangaroo jumps etc. A car with a skills in its grid for losing a chain on a second crash and 6x multiplier is handy, a few hundred thousand points per chain gets you a few level ups and skill points each time. It was one of the first Forzathon weekly challenges, and as I can't drift, it comes in handy.

Find a car with a perk that allows the skill multiplier to go to 6 or 7. Go jumping on the dunes at the beach.

Or, wait for a skill song and go jumping.

I think it’s most efficient to wait for half a million points, then bank them and repeat. Multiplier won’t take long to build.

Nice. I also believe you can acquire the total in any car and then use them in another to acquire car of your choice.

I've been using the new Vantage, downloaded a specific tune for it, 2mph off every time, had to give up last night after about an hour of trying laugh

I bought my son a racing seat and thrust master TMX wheel/pedals for his birthday. We spent a bit of Time Setting it up in FH4, it’s Great fun but bloody difficult!!! I am nowhere near as fast with it as I am with a controller hehe

Practice I suppose... anyone here regularly play with a wheel?

The new Vantage isn't a speed car, it is handling focussed.

As a rule the controller IS faster on Forza games. Some people can be fast but for the average player you will be better on a controller. They make the wheel work but they are optimised for the controller as that is how most people play it.

A tune is a tune though to be fair..

I ended up switching to the AMG GTR with similar (max) tune, after 5 attempts of 229.x mph, finally clocked a 231mph laugh

I used the f12 with an s2 tune.
Start your approach at the roundabout coming from the west and follow the tram tracks. Use rewind to make sure you get off the last bend and onto the straight cleanly at about 205mph and bobs your uncle.

You certainly can. I hadn’t driven either the Spitfire or the MGB when I used the skill points to unlock the credits.

(Although the MGB now has 1016hp after last night’s messing about).

I've uploaded a tune for the F12 (just search for my GT D00MF15H) that will get the camera done

Start from inside the drift zone next to the football pitches, go round the first corner at around 90/100 and you'll be near 180/200 to do the right hand onto the royal mile, turn lightly round that and floor it and you should be fine (avoiding poles and traffic of course)

I didn't fancy the 300 point forzathon Alfa 8C FE (as wouldn't use it) so just ended up getting five of the Hoonigan Fiestas for 200 points and sold four of them at 550,000 each biggrin

Best car I've found personally is the Hoonicorn Focus
Unlock the skill points required
Then head to the East beach drag strip and do skids into all o f the red stringy fences
Soon will get silly high numbers...

Nice, did you take the 200k credits off each car before auctioning them?

I've been doing similar with the Hoonicorn Mustang, it's silly easy to earn Skill Points with that thing..

All skill perks unlocked, just do massive drifts around the countryside fields in 5th gear.. ~70k points with 7x multiplier = 500k points (10 skill points) in less than 3 minutes. Rinse and repeat laugh

Quickest skill point farming I have found is the Hoonicorn with maxxed skill points, and then just hit everything sideways at the airport runway.
10 skill points in about 4 or 5 minutes. quicker with a skill song playing.
