Forza Horizon 4 is one of the best-loved games available on the Xbox, yet still hides a wealth of hilarious bugs and glitches. Now, you can live out your high-speed dreams in a Peel P50, thanks to a crazy speed camera glitch. 

The speed traps and cameras in Forza Horizon 4 are a source of endless entertainment for players looking to out-do each other’s achievements.

With many cars being tuned specifically for breaking in-game speed records, an unlikely contender has emerged at the top of the leaderboards.

It seems that while looking at the scoreboard for the Horizon Drag Strip, there is a strange anomaly in the leaderboard as the data suggests the fastest car in the game is the diminutive Peel P50.

The Peel P50 is one of the smallest, most unusual cars in Forza Horizon 4. Back in the 1960s, the P50 was built as a form of cheap personal transportation by Peel on the Isle of Man. Classed as a ‘microcar’ the Peel P50 is officially the smallest production car ever built.

In Forza Horizon 4, it is somewhat of a ‘joke’ car. Found via the Barn Find challenges dotted throughout the game, the P50 also hides a secret – it can be used to break speed records in Forza Horizon 4.

The leaderboard posted by u/seththeceo shows that the fastest cars in the game – according to the Horizon Drag Strip leaderboard – are the Peel P50s, alongside the obscure BMW Isetta ‘Bubblecar’.

Strange results on the leaderboard point to a glitch being present.

While the fact that the cars are showing as being tuned to ‘S1’ level, the obscure appearance of a ‘D’ category car highlights the fact that these are, in fact, glitched.

It turns out that by correctly placing the Peel P50 next to the speed camera and enlisting the help of a friend, it is possible to smash records on the drag strip without even driving.

By having a fellow player smash into the back corner of the Peel P50 with either of the racing trucks in FH4, the car is glitched through the wall. The car catapults with such force from the impact, it flies past the speed cameras at anything from 200 to 300+ mph.

YouTuber reveals “harsh reality” of owning insane supercar collection

TheStradman’s crazy car collection is the envy of any petrolhead, but it turns out there’s a darker side to supercar ownership. In his November 24 video, he reveals just how much he pays for his cars, as well as the upkeep on his fleet, which totals to a staggering amount of money.

From sleeping in his Audi TT to owning a Bugatti Veyron, it’s fair to say YouTuber James ‘TheStradman’ has had an incredible rise to ‘the top’ of his career. But, owning numerous supercars (and one hypercar) doesn’t come cheap, as he has now revealed.

Right from the first video of his Bugatti Veyron ownership series, he has said he wants to be as ‘open and transparent’ as possible with viewers. Given the insane costs of owning a hypercar, James has certainly delivered on his promise, even going as far as breaking down an incredible $30,000 service bill for his subscribers.

TheStradman reveals insane cost of supercar ownership

Straight away in the video, Stradman gets to the question on everyone’s lips: How much does the Bugatti Veyron cost to own? Well, it turns out that per month, the car costs him $4,765, and he cannot miss a single payment.

This is a lot of money, but given that his housemate Burlacher – who has far fewer followers – revealed he makes nearly $40k/year on YouTube, we imagine TheStradman is making enough to cover the payments, and then some.

With many viewers expecting that TheStradman paid north of $1m for his Veyron, he reveals that the overall price was in fact far less. In total, he paid only $880,000 for the Veyron, which he said will come as “no surprise” for his viewers to learn that it is financed.

Perhaps even more shocking is the amount that he put down – a total of $550,000. We know that he’s sold a lot of cars recently, but that’s still an incredibly large down payment for a car, even if it is a Veyron! James also admits that had he paid for the car outright, he would’ve been “financially wrecked” which is why he put it on finance.

While the Bugatti is sensibly financed, TheStradman revealed that he is the complete and outright owner of both his Lamborghini Aventadors, having paid off their finance agreements. Therefore, it is only a matter of time before the Veyron is also paid off. With his continued success and impressive viewing figures, hopefully, for him, it will be sooner rather than later.
