Gift cars come in all shapes and sizes, and some of which are only available for a limited time.

Loyalty Rewards

Forza Horizon 5 features Loyalty Rewards, which, as the name implies, rewards you for playing past Forza titles. There are seven Loyalty Rewards cars in all, with each one corresponding to the cover car on a previous Forza game.

Here are all the Message Center cars that have been gifted in Forza Horizon 5.

What are the cover cars for Forza Horizon 5?

Playground Games kept the cover cars for Forza Horizon 5 close to their chest for ages, but the secret was finally spilled during the Xbox Gamescom 2021 event, when Playground finally revealed the cover art and cars for Forza Horizon 5. Many players speculated that the delayed wait for an announcement indicated Playground was waiting on a brand-new car to be revealed, but it turns out initial guesses were spot on.

The official Forza Horizon 5 cover cars include:

  • 2021 Mercedes-AMG ONE
  • 2021 Ford Bronco Badlands

These are excellent choices for FH5, with each car being truly impressive in their own right. The Mercedes-AMG ONE combines Formula 1 hybrid technology with a street-legal car for the first time, resulting in an incredible hypercar. On the other hand, Ford has revived their long-dormant Bronco moniker with a rugged and versatile off-roading monster. Both cars should be well suited to FH5’s diverse Mexican landscapes.

For reference, here are the cover cars for every single Forza Horizon game so far:

  • Forza Horizon: 2013 SRT Dodge Viper GTS
  • Forza Horizon 2: 2014 Lamborghini Huracán
  • Forza Horizon 3: 2016 Lamborghini Centenario and 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor
  • Forza Horizon 4: 2018 McLaren Senna and 1997 Land Rover Defender 90
  • Forza Horizon 5: 2021 Mercedes-AMG ONE and 2021 Ford Bronco Badlands

What are the starter cars for Forza Horizon 5?

Comparisons to Pokémon aside, Forza Horizon games do grant players a choice of starter car when they’re first beginning their latest journey. Forza Horizon 5 will continue this tradition by granting players the choice of three different vehicles when they start the game. However, FH5 will deviate from the norm by adding all three starter cars to your garage, regardless of which vehicle you choose to begin with.

Here are the three starter cars (and the first cars you’ll earn) in Forza Horizon 5.

  • 2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette Stingray
  • 2020 Toyota Supra GR
  • 2021 Ford Bronco Badlands

Are there preorder cars for Forza Horizon 5?

New Forza entries have historically featured several preorder cars, or vehicles exclusive to preorders at specific retailers. The move saw customers who purchased the title at storefronts like Amazon and Best Buy receive exclusive rides, otherwise unobtainable in-game. These preorder cars were tuned to be exceptionally powerful, and quickly became some of the rarest cars in their respective games, leaving many community members to be frustrated after launch.

Playground Games has transitioned away from this theme with Forza Horizon 5, and has confirmed that there are no preorder cars arriving with the game. Overall, it doesn’t matter where or how you preorder or purchase Forza Horizon 5, as no editions will come with exclusive vehicles.

However, players can earn an exclusive Forza Edition car by purchasing the limited edition Forza Horizon 5 Xbox Controller, which can now be purchased (you can read more about this above).
