The Chevy C8 Corvette Is Coming To Forza Horizon 4!!!
Better late than never, folks!by Kirby Garlitos, on LISTEN 03:21
Ever since Chevrolet unveiled the Corvette C8 in 2019, it was only a matter of time before the first mid-engine Corvette in the nameplate’s history would find its way to the world of Forza Horizon 4.
The Chevrolet Corvette C8 is now being unleashed in Forza 4. Ok, so we’re all going to have to wait until January 14, 2021 for the unleashing to become official, but all the same, the ‘Vette C8 will make its long-awaited debut in Forza 4 alongside other automotive luminaries like the 1990 Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z and the 1965 Honda S800. New seasonal events, challenges, and stunts will also be included in the Series 31 update.
For the record, Forza Horizon 4’s Series 31 Update isn’t available yet, and it won’t be available for two more days.
Let’s start with the seasons. Like most updates in the past, Series 31 starts with Summer, then Autumn, Winter, and Spring. Each season will last one week so you’re going to have your hands full with all the challenges that each season comes with.
Speaking of challenges, expect a lot of them, per usual. There are a multitude of season events, seasonal playgrounds, and PR Stunts to occupy your video game hours. Even better, you can complete a lot of these events and challenges in any of the three new rides that are also included in the Series 31 Update.
If you’re looking for an iconic race car that has a history of terrorizing the International Race of Champions, the 1990 Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z is your best bet.
You’ll have to complete 50 percent of the winter challenges to unlock the racer, but once you do, you’re going to be treated to a 215-horsepower racing machine.
In the unlikely event that you want to just enjoy the thrills of driving around the world of Forza Horizon 4 without a care in the world, the punchy little 1965 Honda S800 should get your juices flowing. Sure, it’s powered by a 791cc engine that produces only 70 horsepower, but remember, that small engine is capable of redlining at an absurd 10,000 rpm, helping the pocket rocket earn the distinction of being the first Honda to exceed 100 mph. That counts for a lot, but if you really want to take these challenges seriously, there’s one car that’s up for that part: the 2021 Chevrolet Corvette C8.
The Corvette C8 is more than just the first mid-engine Corvette in the nameplate’s history. It’s also powered by a mid-mounted 6.2-liter LT2 V-8 engine that produces 490 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque in a normal setup and 495 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque if the sports car is equipped with the Z51 package. Either setup works if you want to go balls-to-the-wall with the Corvette C8. The newest ‘Vette can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds in the standard configuration and 2.8 seconds with the Z51 package.
|Engine||LT2, 6.2-liter, n/a V-8, mid-mounted|
|Power||490 hp, 495 hp w/ the Z51 pack|
|Torque||465 lb-ft, 470 lb-ft w/ the Z51 pack|
|0-60 mph||2.9 s|
|Top speed||194 mph|
Those kinds of power and performance figures will come in handy when you’re trying to complete all the events and challenges that are included in the Series 31 Update.
