Uh oh. From this week's Week In Review:

Don’t forget we are giving away a 2013 SRT Viper GT-S with a unique livery to those who play the demo, then purchase Forza Horizon and play online. And, while I doubt I need to tell you Forza Faithful this, for those who purchase and play the game within the first week of release will receive a free Saleen S5S Raptor, a Horizon unicorn car available only from the Forza community team.

Here we go again...

Resources

  • Nub's Obsessive Unicorn Tracking Spreadsheet (send me a PM if you want edit privileges)
  • Forza Central Unicorn Discussion Thread
  • "Will There Be Unicorns?" - FM.NET Thread

I found that keeping an XLS was handy in FM4, but granted there were more unicorns there. I'll ensure it's updated and cleaned up as we get the final confirmed list of cars.

this is the unicorn list that's been floating around.

Dino
Fiesta
CRX
Elan
MX5
Mini
Raptor

it definitely seems right to me. hopefully it is cause then i wouldn't be too worried about getting them. i was so bummed when i found out what the unicorns were in FM4 cause literally almost all of them were among my absolute favorite cars in FM3; this, on the other hand, doesn't really effect me.

what do you guys think?

Pretty disappointing. None of those cars will get a Montoya effort from me. Can't decide whether it's good or not.

FM4: Yay, a unicorn!

FH: Oh, a unicorn ...

Well... that all depends Shin.... With the different style and gameplay, the Unicorns in FH might be LB cars or at least upper tier for their class and type... These are street racing events, so FWD tuner cars may be more relevant than in FM4. With the gravel/dirt roads and off-roading areas, AWD is now more relevant as well...

I'm going to hold off on my judgement until in the game... With that said, Unicorns (even in FM4) were never all that important to me. I just find it nice to have a car that not everyone will have! Wink

They could be broke-down wood-paneled minivans that simply vary in rust coloration...but if they're "exclusive" I'll obsess to the point of losing sleep over getting them. I did with the FM4 unicorns, and I'll do it again here. I hate myself.

LOLOLOLOL

This I belive was the pinnacle of the Bounty Hunter type of event. For those that participated, this was almost a watermark event.

For me, I think I barely scraped by. But I remember offering tips to others here. At that time, I was around the top of the club LB's for rival events. Nowadays, I'm lucky if I break the top 10 when everybody has a go at it. Mark, Chaoborus, Chrissy, Fischs, Viper and Beef are the ones that are constantly at the top of the events now.

And back on topic, as for the Unicorns, once again, meh. I wasn't hunting uni's in FM4, so I'll just go with the flow on these ones as well.

I've got the raptor and I got a mini from my loyalty cars. Its that the unicorn? Not to sound weird but I like this list of unicorns. I'm honestly a grass roots kinds of guy and those are the kind of cars I was always around when I autocrossed. Except the raptor.

No... The mini we got for loyalty was not the Unicorn.... The raptor is though...

Best way to tell if it's a Unicorn or special edition is to check the official car list... [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] If it's listed it's not a unicorn....

Low and Lou, you received your loyalty cars? What did you do to get them? I have played quite a bit already and never received any message about the cars. I saw on the net that it seems to be glitched. Anyone else not get theirs that should have? I did get my vinyls from FM4 but no cars.

Did you go and visit the garage or upgrade shop. I think that's where I got mine. Maybe it was the dealership I visited, can't remember exactly.

I think it was after I was awarded my Yellow wrist band, but I cannot be sure... I know it was only last night, but there was a lot of new stuff flying around!

Yup, I went to garage and tune up shop, tried them all. Nothing popped. I checked online and a guy suggested deleting FM4 game save and starting again, supposedly it worked for him but I am not deleting a year of playing on FM4 for it. Would just like the cars. I heard that it was supposed to pop after receiving the yellow band, I am up to the blue band and no go, rrrghhh, frustrating.

Further, I don't have my copy of FM4 to go back to right now, lent it out to a friend.

Try going to the auto show and see what happens. I remember going to something and then they all popped up

one thing people did when that problem happened in FM4 was delete their FM4 game save and restart. but it might not even be worth it if you're already a ways into the game
