Two Hoonigan drift cars have just been added to Forza Horizon 4
Because sideways is life, apparently.
Those with the Forza Horizon 4 Car Pass can burn rubber with the latest two cars to be added, both of which are of a high-horsepower Hoonigan flavour.
First up is the 1991 Ford Escort Cosworth, which uses a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine to make a rather potent 620 horses. Combined with all-wheel drive and a seven-speed sequential gearbox, very fast acceleration is assured. Sideways or not.
Then there is the 1977 Ford F-150 Hoonitruck, which certainly lives up to the 'hoon' part of its name. Its 3.5-litre twin-turbo V6 monster of an engine generates 914 horsepower, all of which sent to all four wheels for maximum traction. Or not.
Despite the noticeable power deficit between the two cars, we can see them both being useful as drifting at in lower class Forza Horizon 4 races can be both rewarding and good practice. Plus the truck just looks awesome.
Next week will see a Can-Am buggy and the Ferrari-engined, 503bhp Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio released to Car Pass users.
Previous notable cars added in this way include the 2017 Koenigsegg Agera RS, BMW i8 Roadster, #185 1985 Porsche 959 Prodrive Rallye, 2002 Mazda RX-7 Spirit R Type-A and the, erm, Nissan Sentra Nismo.
Is the Forza Horizon 4 Car Pass worth owning? That depends on whether you want two new vehicles delivered every week until March, 2019, for a total of 42 at a cost of £23.99.
If the answer is yes, go for it. Although there is always the chance you could try and snag these cars from the Forza Horizon 4 Auction House instead. Speaking of passes, you can play the game using the Xbox Game Pass.
