They had a hype about the December update the other day, but apparently this looks like the same update as usual.

I was hoping that the bodykit update they've been delaying for nearly two years would come in Series 30.
At least it would have excited me more than Koeningggssenisseggsegnignigsegigiseg or new achievements.

In the spring of 2019 they gave notice of it. Originally it was supposed to be done around summer 2019.
This was for the purpose of adding body kits to existing models at the time of April 2019, and they had said that many body kits would be added.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EXEFzfPf9iE&feature=youtu.be&t=4112

But this update has already been delayed for more than a year. (Even in the Monthly update stream after the addition of the bodykit to Mini Cooper, they mentioned that this update was delayed, so the addition of the bodykit to Mini is probably unrelated to this update)

90s Alfas, they could be the 155 Q4 and the SZ Zagato. IMO the SZ isn't all that interesting, I'd rather the Alfetta GTV6, which could be a bootleg James Bond car. Classic Fiat, almost surely the 8V Supersonic.

For an "Italian" update that's pretty weak IMO. Maybe the Alfas come with the 2.9L V6 from the Giulia, who knows.

The Jesko could come, but I think it's pretty unlikely unless they give us 4 cars this time around. Biggest problem with the Jesko is PI, it should go straight into X class unless they undertire it. T-Rex could've been the new RAM TRX, but again, very unlikely.

Speaking of the bodykit update, yes, it's been promised more than a year ago and likely shelved due to working on stupid things like the Eliminator. To ignore it ever happened is to clutch at straws.

Guess the game needs some boost in playtime according to PG's metrics, hence the new achievements. Cheap way to make people play, as was done all year. Couldn't have asked for lazier support.

Don't forget the 75 from FM6,7 and FH3, 1992 MY, so that could be a possibility too

Yeah, I had seen that, but didn't expect it so soon.

Spring of ‘19? That feels like a decade ago lol

Did they say it was going to happen soon or that they were “looking into it”? Gotta love the semantics game that some of these developers play.

Another article you may well have already seen, though:
https://www.gtplanet.net...ease-before-fm-20201128/

"the Horizon series has also overtaken Motorsport as the franchise’s sales juggernaut in recent years. FH3 outstripped FM7‘s lifetime sales to date, and FH4 is by far the most popular car-based Xbox exclusive game in the console’s history."

They've got to go with the customers to a large extent.

Btw, I'm pretty sure [Redacted] means it's going to be the new GR Supra. They are hiding it away just like they were hiding the old mk4 Supra last year in torben tuesday's clues.

Here is what I am guessing for Cars.

10 Classic Austins = Another chance to unlock the FX4 Taxi.
8 Koenigseggs= Koenigsegg Jesko
4 Redacted = Toyota GR Supra
3 T-Rex = RAM TRX Power upgraded from 505 to 710 HP to Match the Production Model.
2 90's Alfa's = 155 Q4 Returning from FH3 and New to Horizon SZ "il Mostro" imported from FM7
And a Classic Fiat Sports Car = either the 8V Ghia Suprersonic, or, more Likely IMO, the X1/9.

This make sense as most of the time when it was mentioned in comments on streams and such it got redacted.

For 8 Hypercars, i would say it's insane by standards of liscencing exists, but for Koenigseggs, that can be a bit of a head scratcher to me and some peeps... But i'll give my choice of the probability of the cars that will release out of the 12 that aren't released

The ones that will definitely Happen :

CC : It's the First car that aired in the factory
CCR : CC8S's successor
CCX-R Edition : our great veteran of the franchise shall pass and meet his pal the 599XX Evo
Agera R : Yeah, another Variant of the Agera, but more iconic to me since i've loved it in Need For Speed 2012
CCX-R : The original is quite interesting within it's engine
Jesko (might not, nor it's variant) : Eh, Will definitely not have it's speed, but hey, Hooray for collectors

Highly Probable (first) or less probable (last) :

Remera : it's a SUV and the , so why not ? (Liscensing gotta be tough)
CCX-R Trevita : i don't know why it's iconic, would like to know why

Won't Happen : Basically the Ageras remaining variants and the Jesko Absolut

The Agera S and Agera Final were not known to me, knew a bit about the Jesko Absolut... But they are variants... it's better to have a better variety aye ?

I'm fairly certain there won't be 8 Koenigseggs in the update and they only phrased it that way to fit with the '12 Days of Christmas' song.

I think [REDACTED] is for a Hoonigan (see the square brackets around the word itself, one of the big identifiers of Hoonigan), maybe one of the other cars at Hoonigan they scanned, the Scumbug seems pretty unlikely to me
