Stats and Runway indicate Mclaren Speedtail
Engine is a Toyota 2000GT
Engine on the wall could possibly be an Essex V6 engine
Battery on desk, Maybe a Tesla or another electric car?
GMC van, maybe Vans And Utility in eliminator? Or...
It could indicate a new horizon story "Express Delivery". Images on the whiteboard seem to show hints towards that.
Changes/Upgrades to Edinburgh castle, maybe have the inside of the castle accessible?

All I got so far.

Yeah, Toyota 2000GT engine and stats of Speedtail, and Kennedy Space Center runway where it was tested, quite obvious ones.

Rest, good question.

The dog costume on the board.
The new engine picture on the wall, if it's really a clue.
The GMC on the left screen.
The Edinburgh Castle on the middle one.
Pat 1 is the car from Postman Pat children's television series.
The battery can be anything, maybe a clue, maybe it's just there.
Rest of the papers on the board, they are barely visible.

Let Me See.

The Toyota 2000 GT is screamingly Obvious, about time that came back to Horizon, FH2 was its last appearance at the Festival wasn't it? not sure what Year it would be, as Forza has, over the Years, had a '66 , a'67 and a '69! so goodness knows what the Year on the Toyota 2000 GT would be. '67 (the year "You Only Live Twice" came out) would be most Appropriate IMO due to the "Best of Bond" Car Pack.

The 2020 McLaren SpeedTail is also astoundingly Obvious. Nice!

The Engine on the Wall *is* an Essex V6, so, looks like we are getting another Historic V6 Ford, was there any mentioned in that case of "Faulty Plumbing" involving the Games Car List a Couple of Months back?

The Dog Costume Possibly hints at New Cosmetics, Possibly related to that New Scooby Doo Movie? Playground are clearly Targeting the Wee Bairns with this Game, so I wouldn't be Surprised... Or it could be hinting to a Car that is seen by Many as being an absolute "Dog" but has also become a Cult Classic, maybe something like the 1971 Chevrolet Vega GT or the 1977 AMC Pacer X?

I think the 1983 GMC Vandura shows that the "Express Delivery" Business/ Story might Finally be Ready! could the Impossibly "Dodgy" Tommy Bargains *finally* be Coming into the Game as an Interactive Character rather than just a "Deep Lore" Element turned Comedy Sketch?

Edinburgh Castle could be that the "Autovista" is being moved into the Court Yard rather than the Outer Drive, it could mean we may *finally* be getting Interactive Homes, or it could be they have *finally* fixed the Camera Angles at Players Homes that got Fouled up with the Lego Update, not sure.

Pat 1, Postman Pat's Van, at least in the Classic "Stop Motion" Series of 1981, was a LDV Sherpa, so Possibly the 1981 LDV Sherpa V8 is coming into the Game, maybe as a Reward in "Express Delivery" ?

The Battery could be a Clue that Playground have *finally* sorted out their Licencing Issues with Tesla, or it could be a clue to another Electric Car coming to the Game. (again, was there any mentioned when Playground had that Plumping Failure with the Game Files?) .. or it could just be a battery that clues to nothing as Torben strikes Me Personally as being more than bit Untidy!

I Cannot see the Rest of the Clues I am afraid as the Image is too Small to see the Board Correctly.

I just hope all the New Cars are Single Player Unlocks again! Playground are getting pretty good at Putting all the New Cars in as Single Player Rewards as of Recent. and I hope they keep that up!

But we already have Mk I and Mk II Escorts in the game, I don't really see the point to have another one.

I see a Van and some walls.. Van Der Waals which are the forces that help Geckos to climb glass which is how they beat most other creatures at escaping. To beat glass is to break windows, and a broken window in glass is how the Tesla shatterproof window went wrong at the show with the Cybertruck. So this could be about the Tesla Cybertruck... lol.

1. Postman Pat mail van as a L1 vehicle in "The Eliminator"?

2. Fully tuned "Ford Transit SV3" as a L10 vehicle in "The Eliminator"?

3. Community custom liveries on police vehicles in "The Eliminator"?

Probably none of them, I know, but would be kinda cool.

I also think they should add a feature where the longer you spend outside the area from the moment "The Eliminator" starts = a sliding scale downgrade in performance of whatever car you end up in the final round.

Would force more players to get in the area quicker and allow more potential H2Hs

Well Spotted STR3LA! that is, indeed, a Napier Lion Engine! Your Eyes are a Heck of a Lot better than Mine :)

Indeed, Fingers Crossed for the Napier-Railton, and it had *better* be a Single Player Reward (although, if not, knowing the Forza Fanbase, the Auction House will most likely be flooded with them as its not the Latest "Supercar" and not of much interest to most of the Forza Fanbase as a Result) as I have wanted to drive that Car in a "Decent" Racing Game for quite some Time Now!

Dog= Rover 3.5? Lunar Rover from Bond? New Defender? Old tricked out Defender? Or Rover equivalent Toyota FJ44, last seen ?FH2?

2K GT Toyota/Speedtail FTW.

Electric-Tesla truck? Rimac same physics as Pininfarina Battista?
VW electric? or new ID?
Golf 8, or March G40R? (random guess)

PAT 1 indeed is Postman Pat's Car, there was a real world version which I believe may be part of the "Express Delivery" story. Boxes, UPS, GMC, PAT 1, all links.

I've a feeling Express Delivery will be taking requests from companies to deliver parcels to customers across the mainland, (obvious) in each chapter, you'll drive a custom build version of company vans, with the final chapter driving the Custom PAT 1..?

Edinburgh castle looks as though the doors are open, hopefully this means we can drive around inside or at least see the view of Edinburgh from within.
