Forza Horizon 4 is tons of fun, with plenty of awesome races and cool cars to keep players interested. Between all the crafted content and glorious gameplay, developer Playground Games has allowed gamers to inject their own personality into the experience. You can create your own race metrics, start your own online club, and much more. However, there’s one feature that remains the most apparent in its user generated roots; custom paint jobs. Forza Horizon 4 paint jobs are a great way to spice up your newest vehicle purchase, and you’d be surprised at what the community has to offer. There’s a bit of everything; replica vehicles, pop culture references, and more. I had an utter blast decking out my car with various Forza Horizon 4 paint jobs. After spending dozens of hours in the game, I have gravitated towards a few of my favorites. Here are my five favorite Forza Horizon 4 paint jobs.
My Top 5 Favorite Forza Horizon 4 Paint Jobs
5. Class 10 Race Car – Spongebob Squarepants
This is an excellent car to take off-road, and I heavily favored it during my time in the Dirt Racing championship. There’s something absolutely joyful about tearing through the thickly wooded countryside with a Spongebob paint job. Nearly every panel of this car features the obnoxious smiling face of our favorite underwater sponge. It’s a great way to taunt your opponents in online races as well; no one likes being smirked at by Spongebob while they’re trailing in last place.
4. Impreza WRX STI – Galaxy
I treated my WRX STI like a cruiser, using it for open world travel and various collectibles. When I’m not in races, I prefer a more muted (but still visually disruptive) paint job. Although there are several “galaxy” style paint jobs available to choose from, I eventually settled on this one. The nice mixture of purples and blues makes the car pop out surprisingly well, especially in the winter months.
3. Ford RS200 Evolution – Daisies
The RS200 was another of my “daily drivers”, although I enjoyed smashing drift scores with it. This design, titled “Daisies”, is pretty simplistic. However, it is an awesome match up with the brighter colors of spring, and sticks out like a sore thumb in the winter. There’s a bit of duality to the paint job as well; the soft and gentle nature of a few flowers does a good job hiding the uproarious engine and massive amount of torque.
2. Impreza 22B STi – Hello Kitty
I don’t consider myself a fan of the Hello Kitty property. Whether it’s the cartoon, numerous films, or various other collectibles, I can’t say I’ve spent much of my time on Hello Kitty merchandise. It’s funny then, that without fail, I always seem to use a Hello Kitty decal on my main car. This paint job saw more gameplay time than all of the rest combined. I especially loved equipping a custom horn and obnoxious quick chat options, driving over to a public event, and making a massive ass out of myself. It’s hard not to laugh when you careen into a brick wall at 250 mph while sporting this paint job, supported by a Windows XP shutdown noise.
Side note: You can actually equip the Windows XP shutdown noise as your horn, which I was absolutely thrilled by. It comes with my highest recommendation.
1. Nissan GT-R – Pokemon
Although I had the Hello Kitty paint job equipped for quite some time, my absolute favorite has to be this GT-R Pokemon paint job. There’s a noticeable level of craftsmanship in it, from the various characters on the side to the excellent accents and hood logo. I didn’t use the GT-R as much as I could’ve, but that has nothing to do with the Pokemon paint job.
