A couple of months ago we reported that Forza Horizon 4 is finally getting Toyota back in the game. With the exception of the A80 Supra, these cars are available only by completing weekly challenges. So far the roster has included the AE86, 2000GT, and now the A70 Toyota Supra.
The series requires you to complete a three-event challenge of “Street Scene” races, Forza Horizon‘s street racing series. You must use an A-class Japanese car, but you can race in AI, player-vs-player, or co-op team racing modes. While you don’t need to reach first place in every race, you need to get first place overall in the championship to get the Supra.
When I was completing the championship I noticed that all the cars that spawned were more modern ones such as the FD RX-7, NSX, and the new Civic Type R. For this series I would highly recommend building a more balanced car than just a car with a ton of power since the races are exclusively at night and with live traffic. The traffic seems to spawn at the end of not quite every blind turn, but just enough to make you wince at every corner with a poor handling car.
Once you unlock the Mk3 Supra, you’ll find it’s very similar to the Forza Horizon 3 version. It isn’t the powerhouse that the A80 Supra is, but the car is very balanced. A tasteful, box-flared widebody is available and some of the new wheels in Horizon 4 fit the chassis very well. Without doing any engine swaps, the car feels the best at the top of A-class, where it will be a perfect fit for the A-class Off Road Racing online ranked lobbies.
The weekly seasonal event is open until midnight Wednesday, April 22, and takes about an hour to complete. While you’re at it, the Forzathon shop also has the Z32 300ZX available for 450 FP, one of the in game currencies won by completing weekly challenges. If you do have the A70 Supra, let us know! We will be doing more Forza related content during our collective quarantine.
