Two classic cars are now available in Forza Horizon 4 for all car pass owners and here's some Information and history about them.
There are loads of history behind Volkswagen’s very first models, especially the Type 2 model, that is also known as the “camper” and the “hippie van”. The van was designed by the Dutch businessman Ben Pon, who first visited Wolfsburg in 1946 where he got the inspiration to create something better, practical and more comfortable by using Type 1's pan. Unfortunately, a lot of problems arose while designing the van. Volkswagen realized that Type 1's pan was eventually too weak for the car, so they were forced to bring a new ladder chassis. They reused the same old four-cylinder boxer engine with 25hp, although this vehicle was more heavier than a beetle, an approximate weight of 1500KG (a 700 KG payload) and aerodynamics had to be improved due to its size and shape. The production had to be delayed because Volkswagen was at capacity producing the Type 1, however, the van finally went into production 1949.
The Type 2 quickly became popular as an efficient way to transport packages, thus Type 2 further evolved into other variants, Including the pickup truck!
The MG TA Midget is coming to Forza Horizon 4, the TA is quite a nice car when it debuted back in 1936. It had a revolutionary overhead cam inline 4 engine in it which was rather unique for its day. With the SU Carburettors, revolutionary camshaft and the other trickery under the hood, it came in at just 1292cc and a power output of 50 horsepower at 4,500 rpm. The MG Midget also came with a 4-speed manual gearbox and hydraulic brakes, which was rather top of the line back in the day. This car is all yours in Forza Horizon 4’s British terrain where this unique car is from!
