Almost every custom design available in Forza Horizon 4 was most likely born out from the Design Editor.

Through the Design Editor, players can apply custom shapes, lines, contours, and patterns to truly make their liveries stand out from the crowd. They can even download pre-made designs from contributors within the community.

Some of these designs emulate some of the most popular looks in popular media. Cars such as the Nissan Silvia S15 can be made to look exactly like Han’s Mona Lisa in Tokyo Drift.

If you happen to have a type of look in mind that you would like to apply to your car in Forza Horizon 4, there is surely a way to achieve that through the Design Editor.
