Here’s the list of the fastest cars in Forza Horizon 5:


Porsche Taycan Turbo S 2020

The “Welcome Pack” version of the Taycan Turbo S has some great stats.
  • Performance Class & Rating: S2 / 900
  • Speed: 10
  • Handling: 7.8
  • Acceleration: 9.7
  • Launch: 10
  • Braking: 7.2
  • Offroad: 4.4

While there are two variants of the Taycan Turbo S 2020 from Porsche, you’ll want to go with the “Welcome Pack” version for that higher rating and better stats overall.

Bugatti Divo 2019 (S2)

Bugatti Divo 2019 is expensive, but it’s fast.
  • Performance Class & Rating: S2 / 958
  • Speed: 9.6
  • Handling: 9.9
  • Acceleration: 10
  • Launch: 6.2
  • Braking: 9.5
  • Offroad: 4.4

If you’re looking for great Breaking, Handling and Acceleration, look no further than the Bugatti Divo 2019. With a near-perfect score for all three, you’ll be able to zip around the map without fear of burning out and spinning off-track.

Hoonigan Ford ‘Hoonicorn’ Mustang (S2)

The Ford ‘Hoonicorn’ Mustang might not have amazing braking or handling, but it’s fast.
  • Performance Class & Rating: S2 / 951
  • Speed: 9.2
  • Handling: 6.7
  • Acceleration: 10
  • Launch: 7.4
  • Braking: 5.9
  • Offroad: 5.5

If you’re less concerned about steady Handling and Braking, the Ford ‘Hoonicorn’ Mustang has awesome Speed at 9.2, and even better Acceleration at 10. A glass cannon of sorts, you’ll be able to fire down the race track and keep up with the best, but you’ll likely suffer against cars that have equal or better speed with nicer Handling.

  • Performance Class & Rating: S2 / 959
  • Speed: 8.5
  • Handling: 9.2
  • Acceleration: 10
  • Launch: 10
  • Braking: 9.4
  • Offroad: 4.6

Clocking in at the slowest overall on our fastest car list, the effortlessly cool Aston Martin Valhalla Concept Car picks up with slack in other areas, with a perfect 10 stats score for both Acceleration and Launch, with a reliable 9.4 for Braking.

McLaren Speedtail 2019

The Speedtail has some rather speedy stats, making it befitting of its name.
  • Performance Class & Rating: S2 / 910
  • Speed: 9.6
  • Handling: 7.4
  • Acceleration: 6.8
  • Launch: 7.4
  • Braking: 7.4
  • Offroad: 3.7

It wouldn’t be a Speedtail if it wasn’t fast, and the McLaren does not disappoint in FH5 at a 9.6 in Speed. Despite this, its other stats leave much to be desired, so you’ll likely need to do some serious turning to take it to another level if you want that reliability in other areas.

Bugatti Chiron 2018 (S2)

A Bugatti Chiron will blow away your opponents in Forza Horizon 5.

  • Speed: 10
  • Handling: 7.9
  • Acceleration:9.9
  • Launch: 6.1
  • Braking: 8.6
  • Offroad: 5.0

The Bugatti Chiron features a perfect 10 Speed stat, coupled with the almost perfect 9.9 for Acceleration. While it suffers slightly on Offroad performance with a middle-of-the-road 5.0 and a slow-but-steady 6.1 Launch, you’ll ooze style as you take on your opponents in a flash.

The Rimac Concept Two 2019 costs a pretty penny, sure, but the combination of a zippy 9.1 Speed, 9.9 Acceleration, and a cool 10 Launch will have you finish fast in a flash. Coupled with a cool 9.3 for Braking, you’ll be able to ensure those great drifts, and prevent an ill-timed break from having too much of a negative impact.

It wouldn’t be a ‘fastest cars’ list without the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport 2011.
  • Performance Class & Rating: S2 / 913
  • Speed: 9.9
  • Handling: 7.9
  • Acceleration: 10.0
  • Launch: 5.9
  • Braking: 8.6
  • Offroad: 4.9

The gorgeous-looking Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is a nice mid-point if you quite haven’t earned the Credits for the Koenigsegg One, with a near-perfect Speed of 9.9. It pales in comparison for Handling and Breaking, sure, but its 10.0 for Acceleration ensures it’ll still be able to keep up when it counts.

Koenigsegg Jesko 2020 (S2)

Jesko 2020 in Forza Horizon 5

  • Performance Class & Rating: S2 / 971

  • Launch: 7.4
  • Braking: 9.0

What’s the fastest car in Forza Horizon 5?

Based on accumulative performance stats, the Koenigsegg Jesko of the S2 class appears to be the fastest. While both the Jesko and the Koenigsegg One is a 10 in terms of Speed, the Jesko beats it to the finish line with a 10 in Handling, too.

A fantastic alternative would be Rimac Concept Two 2019. While it only hits a 7.5 for Handling, it’s got almost perfect Launch and Acceleration stats, allowing it to take off much quicker and reach those top speeds in a flash.

This is purely based on in-game stats, though, not on potential customization and tunings. For example, you may be able to upgrade your Aston Martin Valhalla Concept Car to perform at a higher level when utilizing the right parts.
