As if a standard Lamborghini Urus isn’t quite crazy enough, tuning company Mansory has released their take on the Urus, which seems to have won over Supercar Blondie in her August 28 video.

Automotive tuning company Mansory is famous for taking high-end luxury and performance cars and modifying them beyond recognition. While they are often controversial in doing so, there’s a buyer for every car, and it seems Supercar Blondie was smitten with this ‘Mansory Edition’ Urus.

This custom work doesn’t come cheap though; With the full Mansory body kit and tuning package, this Urus is $200,000 more expensive than the standard Lamborghini Urus. To put that into perspective; You can buy a brand-new Porsche 911 Turbo for that sort of money.

Regardless of the crazy cost of the car, Supercar Blondie seemed to fall head-over-heels in love with it.

Mansory is well-known for their controversial body kits.

Starting with the exaggerated and aggressive angles of the Mansory front bumper and new hood, she calls it “extreme and super, super manly” while explaining how Mansory “pimp out” Lamborghinis.

Despite describing the car as “manly,” she clearly loves the look and style of it, but she did find the inflated $500k price tag a little hard to justify.

Evidently smitten with this custom Urus, Supercar Blondie constantly repeats how much she “loves” the look of the car. She also gives us a little hint about her Rolls-Royce build, telling us she’s ordered 24″ wheels for her Wraith, but she’s now unsure if they will suit.

By far her favorite part of this custom Urus is the new exhaust system and engine tune. With a new triangular exhaust set into the rear diffuser, the Mansory Urus sounds “frickin amazing” with its new “ridiculous” exhaust system. The engine tune also adds 30hp to the car, bringing the total power output to around 670hp.

The interior is also a big part of her love for the Urus, describing it as being akin to that of a “fighter jet” in its layout. The controls are mostly touch screen with her praising the haptic feedback of the screen, along with the aerospace-inspired handles and levers.

Making the most of the Urus’ incredible supercar-esque performance, she performs a number of accelerations up to 100kmh to show off the added performance and incredible noise from the exhaust.

With Supercar Blondie giving the Mansory Urus such a glowing review, perhaps we’ll see one as an addition to the channel in the future? Either way, it’s clear she absolutely loved this controversial, $500,000 super-SUV.

Series 28 of Forza Horizon 4 saw a number of updates and changes implemented, with one of the biggest being the introduction of Horizon Backstage. We explain how to access this new area, and give a rundown of all the cars available. 

The Forza Backstage area was added to Forza Horizon 4 as part of the Series 28 update on October 13, 2020.

Allowing players access to exclusive, ultra-rare, and hard-to-find cars, the Backstage area is an exciting new addition to the game. Along with making it easier to find such rare cars, it also makes them far more accessible, as each featured vehicle only costs one ‘Backstage Pass’ rather than millions of credits.

Horizon Backstage LocationHorizon Backstage is located behind the main Horizon Festival stage.

How to access Horizon Backstage

Forza Horizon 4 Backstage can be accessed much the same as the ‘Autoshow’ in the game.

Players can either drive to the physical location found behind the main Horizon Festival Stage, or access via the ‘Autoshow’ menu.

You can also access the area via the pause menu, by selecting “Horizon Backstage” under the ‘Cars’ tab.

Horizon Backstage Car ListEach car costs 1 Backstage Pass, and is limited to one per player.

Forza Horizon 4 Backstage Passes

Each vehicle in the Backstage area is available for purchase by players. Instead of the usual method of obtaining cars via in-game credits or Forzathon points, each vehicle costs 1x Backstage Pass.

These passes are awarded to players once they reach certain milestones in Festival event playlists. Passes are not specific to particular cars, and can be used for any vehicles featured in the backstage area.

Players can also accumulate passes, as they do not have an expiry date. It is important to note, however, that each featured car is limited to only one per player.

Horizon Backstage car votingThe Forza Horizon 4 community has the opportunity to vote which cars make it to Backstage.

Horizon Backstage cars

The cars featured in Horizon Backstage are chosen via community vote. From what we can see, previous cars stick around after their initial period, and currently, players are able to access Backstage featured cars from the previous seven days.

Currently available Horizon Backstage cars:

  • 1999 Lotus Elise Series 1 Sport 190
  • 2012 Ferrari 599XX Evo
  • 1965 Hoonigan Gymkhana 10 Hoonicorn Mustang
  • 2005 Hot Wheels Ford Mustang
  • 1970 Porsche 914/6
  • 2018 Honda Civic Type R
