This is cool!
"barn finds" hidden all over the map.
Pre-Order Cars revealed.
if I understand correctly, you get one depending on where you pre-order from.
There will also be a "Day-1 Add On Pack" of 5 cars, a VIP car pack, and a few other things for the Day-1 crowd and the LCE people.
Not sure if I will get the LCE, I haven't ever before for FM games so I probably wont this time either.
Also, when you pre-order FH, you get a FM4 DLC code for a Dodge Challenger

Received a message over Twitter from Turn 10 saying that preorder customers in the US aren't receiving their Charger 392 from any vendors aside from Best Buy and Amazon. All other dealers aren't giving out the preorder codes under the Horizon is officially launched. That'll likely change, but an FYI in the meantime.
Most recent two messages here: https://twitter.com/Turn10Studios
Current Car: 99' Subaru Impreza Outback Sport
Project Car: 84' Chevy Monte Carlo
Past Cars: 84' Buick Regal, 87' Olds' Cutlass Supreme Brougham, 87' Monte Carlo SS, 91' Toyota Corolla
Ahh thanks. I always thought they protruded out more, they just seem really flat / not detailed in the Horizon pic and even the one you posted. I didn't even think to fire up FM4 to see how they modeled them in that game.
I can't seem to find an authentic "stock" pic, both of these show different exhausts and I don't know if they're genuine factory parts or aftermarket.
This one's from the Wiki page and looks closer to the Forza representation (aside from the metal strap):
Anyhow, enough off-topic. New FH pic today. Hoping they release a new video or details on a demo soon. Aside from "racing to the Festival" (which in all honesty isn't that appealing to me) I don't know what there is to actually DO in the game.

Aside from the near EA-level of DLC milking they do, I really do appreciate Turn 10 as a developer and respect what they've been able to accomplish with the Forza series in such a short span of time. I was a Gran Turismo die-hard and they've stolen my racing heart.
I played the hell out of Forza 2 and 3, and am playing FM4 on a nearly daily basis (a few races to several hour stints). I'll throw the extra $20 their way for the LCE as I feel they deserve it, and I do enjoy the little goodies you get.
I really enjoyed Test Drive Unlimited, so if this plays anything like that with Forza's brilliant physics engine (which it should since it uses it), I think I'm going to be in love for a very long time.
