I too prefer to unlock rather than simply buying any car, but career events still give cars if you want to just unlock rather than buying. As far as I remember, in the event icon, it shows the car as a prize.
I understand this because it allows more diverse online competitions and it is not so nebulous to unlock a car. Before, all cars didnt had any meaningful advice how to unlock them (aside career cars and even then, Elite cars were more difficult to know because the events dont show unless you finish Forza Drivers Cup).

It didnt turned like Project Cars (fortunately), that on the career, you can freely choose any class and any car, so you dont have any sense of progression. Horizon 3 kinda is like this, but you still have progression, you have to do events and earn Money to make the events however you want. Project Cars is pick a car and a class and go.

Unicorns have not been greatly publicized in FM7 until recently but some people liked them in previous Forza games and they may be more prominent in FH4.

Basically they are vehicles that cannot be purchased or obtained normally within the game and have to be won in a special challenge.

They don't appear in the Car Collection Screen until you own them.

The 2 recognized unicorns in FM7 are

1. 1958 MG MGA Twin-Cam
2. 2008 BMW Z4 M Coupe

There's also a Class B Ford which has not yet been fully integrated into the game.

This week's offerings in the Specialty Dealer

2011 McLaren 12C
2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG
2010 Noble M600
2012 Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0

I was trying to keep it simple. Some forum members want also to include all the FEs as unicorns, which to me doesn't seem correct. Others, and I think it was mentioned in an official podcast, state that unicorns don't appear in the Car Collection screen until you own them. As I already own the 1958 MG MGA Twin-Cam, the 2008 BMW Z4 M Coupe and three of the 2017 Porsche #92 Porsche GT Team 911 RSR vehicles, I can't really check this.

Yeah I think Unicorn Cars are silly. I don’t agree with blocking access to cars in game. The Forza Edition cars already function like Unicorn Cars.

Unfortunately I missed out on getting the 2008 BMW Z4 M Coupe during the June Bounty Hunter. I didn’t participate as I was away and didn’t realize that car was a Unicorn. Now I’m stuck hoping it is offered as a reward again (pretty sure it will re-appear) in a future event or somebody sells one in the Auction House (not sure you can do that).

I don’t mean to gripe over this, but isn’t it better to have the cars available so everyone can enjoy them?

I wonder what they will do with the specialty dealer now? Kind of redundant now that almost all the cars are unlocked.. Only cars they can sell are the Forza Edition and the 2-3 unicorn cars.

They are selling normal cars in the SD now.

Duh I know that. Thanks tips. What’s the point? They cost more and maybe you get more collector points. Unless they sell Forza Edition Cars or Unicorns it’s completely pointless.

Apart from the odd "special" car, the SP has been pretty much pointless from day one.

Yes but it sold the, locked cars. Without cars locked it is totally pointless. I really hope all the normal cars (not Forza Editions) are unlocked in FM8.

They are now selling cars in the specialty dealer at a discount at least.

"nothing new" is relative in this sense. In the last four weeks, all the cars offered (except the Porsche 911 4.0) were new to the Specialty Dealer for the first time. However, that's because they were never Exclusive models and have been available to buy from the regular menu since launch, so it's not like these are newly accessible cars.

What they've done since unlocking the Exclusive cars in July is to sell cars through the Specialty Dealer at 15% less than they normally cost in the regular menu but with a boost in the Car Collector score. That's part of the announced change in the game economy (more CR from Forzathon, contests etc) to help players collect the cars now that the Exclusives can be bought with CR.

These are the models that have been offered in the Specialty Dealer to date:

2012 Aston Martin V12 Zagato

There used to be over 100 locked cars in the game up until a recent update. I'd imagine Specialty Dealer was designed with that in mind and it made sense, less so now that all cars except FEs and a couple unicorns are unlocked.

Not that I am complaining, I much prefer it this way. 😄
