Pimp your car collection with one of the priciest vehicles in Forza Horizon 4. Each of the following machines costs 10,000,000 Credits in the Autoshow, the maximum prize on the list. So let’s take a look at each beauty to determine which one is your next dream car.
Note: These are not the most expensive cars in the game overall, as some models boast far higher numbers in the Auction House. Since the prices keep changing there, this article focuses on those models that are constantly available in the Autoshow.
1926 Bugatti Type 35 C
The Bugatti Type 35 sports one of the most iconic bodyworks in the world of cars. This model brings style to the road, but it was also extremely successful: the Type 35 achieved victories in over 1,000 races and helped its car manufacturer to win the Targa Florio for five consecutive years.
In Forza Horizon 4, it is the only car to seem to have a hand-crank ignition. The feature just appears visually, as the engine actually starts normally in-game.
1939 Auto Union Type D
The former Auto Union was an amalgamation firm that included four of the most prominent German car manufacturers. Naturally, they created some legendary vehicles. Their racing cars were designed by Ferdinand Porsche himself and boasted up to 550 horsepower. However, most designs were difficult to tame with their immense power and uneven weight distribution.
These issues were fixed for the Type D and now, FH4 features this unique speedster. In-game, the Type D comes with a fast speed of 8.6 points, but compared to other models, it still lacks in good handling and braking.
1939 Maserati 8CTF
As German speedsters dominated the grid, other nations tried to overtake with their own creations. The Maserati 8CTF was designed by Ernesto Maserati himself. In the 1939 Grand Prix at Tripoli, Italian fans were cheering as the drivers were able to chase the German competitors with ease – until the gearbox let go.
This cigar-bodied vintage car achieved great pace, but struggled with reliability. The numbers in-game reflect the issues, as braking, handling and acceleration are only around 5 points. However, the style points should be 10/10.
1939 Mercedes-Benz W154
Want to channel your inner rainmaster and step into the cockpit of Rudolf Caracciola? The German racer took home several Grand Prix podiums with the Mercedes-Benz W154. Most notably is his victory at the Swiss GP, where he fought his way through pouring rain.
Caracciola’s performance is even more impressive when taking a look at the stats of the W154. In FH4, it comes with high speed but a low braking score of 4.7.
1956 Jaguar D-Type
The beautiful Jaguar D-Type is not only expensive in video games, as in 2016, an original model sold for nearly $20 million. This Jaguar was specifically created for the 24h of Le Mans endurance race – which it successfully won three times in a row.
This car has been part of nine different titles in the Forza franchise. In Horizon 4, it might come with mediocre stats, but who cares if you look this stunning while driving.
1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa
This gem of automotive history is one of Ferrari’s masterpieces. The 250 Testa Rossa won Ferrari ten World Sports Car Championship races and three constructor’s titles. Fashion icon Ralph Lauren even owns two 250 TRs in his car collection.
Forza fans should definitely get their hands on one of the red sportscars. The car is required to unlock the Ferrari Collector achievement. It is also one of five cars you need to purchase for the Exclusive Taste achievement.
1962 Ferrari 250 GTO
Want to own one of the only 33 Ferrari 250 GTOs that were ever produced? Well, you can at least purchase one virtually. Tech magazine Popular Mechanics named the Grand Tourer the “Hottest Car of All Time”, so it’s definitely a good choice to get one.
The model drove home several victories in various championships for Ferrari, until the manufacturer started to focus on Formula 1 instead. In all Forza titles, this car usually features among the most expensive models.
1963 Ferrari 250LM
As the 250 GTO had to be modified, new versions were created. While many state that the LM model was simply a 250P with a roof top, the LM failed to reach homologation and had to compete against prototypes instead.
Despite racing in an unintended class, it scored great placements at Le Mans. The creators also never intended it to be playable in Forza, but here it is with solid stats in all categories.
1964 Jaguar Lightweight E-Type
The Jaguar E-Type is popular for its design and was featured in various comic series, movies and songs. Enzo Ferrari even called it “the most beautiful car ever made”.
The Lightweight E-Type is only available in Forza Horizon 4. The base variant, the Series 1 E-Type, can also be acquired in other titles of the franchise (and as a barn find in Horizon 4).
1966 Ford #2 GT40 MkII (Le Mans)
Not only European cars are iconic. American manufacturer Ford earned much respect for their Ford GT40. When the MkII variant entered Le Mans with three teams and dominated the race, the audience was surely surprised as they even surpassed Ferrari in the standings.
Players can also unlock the Legendary Battle achievement with this car. You just have to beat a Ferrari 330 P4 in any race while driving a GT40.
1967 Ferrari #24 Ferrari Spa 330 P4
Revenge is a dish best served in a stunning red Ferrari. After the Italian manufacturer lost to Ford at the 1965 24h of Le Mans, they worked on building a superior car. The 330 P4 looked exactly like its predecessor P3 at first glance, but was far more powerful.
Ferrari went on to claim the entire podium as payback at the Daytona endurance race in 1966. As mentioned in the GT40 section above, this car is part of the Legendary Battle achievement in FH4.
1968 Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale
The Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale was one of the first supercars in the world. It is also the first car to feature dihedral doors, also known as butterfly doors. In theory, Stradale means “road-going” which indicates it was a street-legal version of a race car. But with no locks and barely any ground clearance, this might not have been the best every-day vehicle.
Only 18 examples were made, but luckily you can get your hands on one for only 10,000,000 Credits.
1971 Porsche #23 917/20
If you’ve watched the Steve McQueen movie Le Mans, you have seen a Porsche 917 in action. This car brought Porsche their first victory at Le Mans. With the nickname “Pink Pig” the #23 917/20 version might not have the most flattering name, but it is definitely an impressive machine.
The FH4 version has an extremely high launch at 9.5 and also great speed and acceleration, so you can send the pink pig flying across the map.
