They’re all anagrams!

 

re:Naval Veg Error = Land Rover Velar

Noble! but retry? = Bentley Type R

A pug, a jar, Ice! = Jaguar I-Pace

 

Make sure to follow us on Twitter to catch the next Torben Tuesday and figure out the clues ahead of the Series Update 27 livestream. 

 

Now let’s break down this month’s cars.

 

Jaguar I-PACE

 

 

The I-Pace represents a huge move for Jaguar – their first all-electric SUV, and it’s an impressive first go-round.

 

The AWD I-Pace goes 0-60 in less than 5 seconds on a 90kW battery that will get just under 300 miles per charge, with a top speed of 124 mph.

 

After the I-Pace was released, its track-only counterpart, the I-Pace Trophy was released and through the course of pushing the battery of the Trophy to its limits, Jaguar actually found ways of updating and upgrading the battery of the I-Pace to maximize performance.

 

Grab Jaguar’s EV I-Pace by complete 50% of the Autumn Playlist. It’s also available as the monthly Rivals car.

 

Land Rover Velar

 

 

The name “Velar” comes from the Italian velare, which means “veiled” or “hidden”. It was a name that Land Rover engineers used for a decoy company back in the 1960s to conceal pre-production registration of Range Rovers.

 

As a nod to that history, the fourth model in the Range Rover line was called the Velar. It represents a more middle-of-the-road version, somewhere between the Evoque and the Sport.

 

The design of this car, which Land Rover refers to as “reductionist”, was intended to emphasize sportiness, and was actually influenced by its Jaguar brother, the I-Pace! It has a more subtle, curved profile and a lower seating position for the driver, in order to improve performance.

 

Grab this “hidden” SUV by completing the Seasonal Championship “Tiding Rover” in the Winter Playlist.

 

1992 Bentley Turbo R

 

 

There might not be a car company that marries power and luxury better than Bentley. Quilted leather, a turbocharged V8, multiple grains of fine wood trim and 0-60 in about six seconds: every Turbo R was hand-built, and for 30 years it was considered the ultimate Bentley.

 

Descended from the Mulsanne and similar in construction to the Brookland model, the Turbo R boasted more speed and control thanks to its reworked suspension (fun fact: the R stands for “Roadholding.”) In classic Bentley style, this is a huge car, but its 6.75L engine more than compensated for the extra weight.

 

When it was released, this car would have run you about $200,000, but thankfully in Forza Horizon 4, you just need to complete the Seasonal Championship “The Sun Never Sets” in the Summer Playlist.

 

Car Packs

This month we’re releasing the British Sports Car Pack and the Any Terrain Car Pack, both featuring cars that were previously only available with Car Pass. If you don’t have the Car Pass, don’t miss your chance to finally pick up these cars!

Updates and Fixes

 

1. We’ve been hard at work for months on a much-requested update to the garage, and it’s finally ready! Capacity has been increased to 1000 cars.

 

2. Based on player feedback, a couple of changes are incoming for Ranked Adventures:

 

· Matchmaking times have been reduced for all Quickplay and Ranked Adventures.

· Players now only need to complete 1 Online Adventure to qualify for any Ranked Adventure.

 

3. Car reset times have been tweaked. This means that when your car flips, there will be a few additional moments before it resets, giving you time to recover.
