Forza Horizon 4 has been around for a while now, but players are still finding new (and hilarious) glitches on a regular basis. In this case, you can utilize the non-stop train that traverses the map to break speed records, as one Reddit user discovered.

Similar to that seen in GTA V, the train that traverses the Forza Horizon 4 map is unable to be stopped. Try as you might, nothing is getting in the way of the steam locomotive and its train as it crisscrosses the Horizon world.

Despite its inability to be stopped, that doesn’t mean the train is a totally useless feature. One Reddit user – CarBoy0001 – discovered that the force of the unstoppable object can actually be put to good use.

Posting to the r/ForzaHorizon subreddit, the video shows a hilarious glitch that makes use of the train to hit insane speeds.

With their Koenigsegg parked on the edge of one of the numerous rail bridges on the map, the player lies in wait for the train to arrive.

Once the train does turn up, instead of merely shunting the car gently out of the way, it glitches the game with hilarious consequences.

I knew the glitch was gonna be wild but not this much from r/ForzaHorizon

When the train connects with the rear 3/4 of the Koenigsegg, it sends the car flying across the map. Not only does it do this, but also makes the players’ car break a number of speed ‘records’ in the process.

The video shows the Koenigsegg flying through the air at 700km/h (434mph) while traveling an incredible distance across the map. In real life, this would significantly break the current speed record for a production car of 316mph.

“I knew the glitch was going to be wild” said CarBoy “but not this much.” Seemingly surprised by their results, the train glitch has been replicated a number of times by YouTubers; Why not give it a go next time you play?

Matt LeBlanc’s classic car collection is nothing short of extraordinary

While many were surprised to see Friends star and sitcom actor Matt LeBlanc as one of the hosts for BBC’s Top Gear for a stint, it turns out LeBlanc is in fact a massive petrolhead, and has a collection of classic cars that is the stuff of dreams.

Anyone that has watched Friends knows the scene where Matt’s character Joey pretends to own a Porsche. Well, it turns out that there’s a degree of truth in that scene — LeBlanc is a massive fan of the Porsche brand, and has a number of their cars in his fleet.

Unlike most celebrity car collections, however, Matt’s is a lot more classic-oriented than most. From early air-cooled Porsches to unusual Jeeps, he has a classic for almost any occasion, as well as a number of cutting-edge supercars for good measure.

Matt’s fastest car is his Porsche 911 GT2 RS.

Matt LeBlanc’s incredible Porsche collection

Porsche clearly hold a special place in Matt’s heart. From the air-cooled ‘widowmaker’ 930 911 Turbo to the cutting-edge 911 GT2 RS, his collection spans a number of decades and styles.

There is a noticeable bias towards the classics here, too. Prior to the 996-era of 911 launching in 1997, Porsche’s engines were mostly air-cooled, and this is where most of Matt’s collection is focused. While there are no doubt some hidden gems that are kept away from public eyes, we do know he owns the following:

  • 2012 911 Carrera GTS
  • 1988 964 (911) Carrera
  • 1987 930 (911) Turbo
  • 2014 911 Turbo S
  • 2016 911 R
  • 2017 911 GT2 RS

Despite his love for Porsche, there’s one he’d never buy: A 914. In an interview with Men’s Journal, he said “I’m not a fan of the 914, though I know there are some die-hard fans out there. I’ll get letters about that.”

As a well-known car enthusiast, Top Gear was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for LeBlanc.

Matt LeBlanc’s exotic cars

While his biggest love is Porsche, Matt also enjoys dabbling in other brands of four-wheeled transport too.

Satisfying his ‘hot hatch’ requirements is his Ford Focus RS, an all-wheel-drive hatchback complete with ‘drift’ button. He also has a classic American muscle car in the form of a De Tomaso Pantera, complete with its room-shaking V8 engine.

Good friend and previous co-host Chris Harris also revealed that Matt has bought himself a Ferrari Testarossa, which will sit nicely alongside his Pantera, and his other Ferraris — a 360 Modena and 458 Italia.

Perhaps the most unusual car in his collection is a Fiat X1/9. This diminutive, rear-engined Italian sports car must’ve struck a chord with LeBlanc, as it’s totally different from anything else in his collection.


With its mix of iconic classics and modern supercars, Matt’s collection is enviable – just don’t tell him you’re a fan of the Porsche 914, whatever you do.
