While the Bugattis and Ferraris might cost millions of credits in the Autoshow, there are a few Forza Horizon 5 free cars you can easily add to your collection to get started. 

Playground Games launch their fifth version of Horizon on November 9, with early access going live some four days prior to that release date.

Included this year is a brand-new Mexico map, taking players from the sandy deserts to sunny beaches for engine-roaring competition, and not to mention a massive cars list.

Buying cars from the Autoshow or Auction House can be relatively expensive, though drivers can set themselves up for early success by redeeming some freebies.

Why spend your credits on Forza Horizon 5 cars when you can get some for free.

Building a collection of race-winner vehicles can be difficult at the beginning, due to a lack of funds. It’s only through playing races whereby drivers accrue enough cash to be able to splash out.

However, there is a way to acquire a loyalty bonus of Forza Horizon 5 free cars – and they will actually make for very valuable additions to your inventory.

NOTE: This is only possible for returning players, as the rewards are a ‘welcome back’ present.

The Koenigsegg One packs a punch in Horizon 5.

The Koenigsegg Jesko, which typically costs 2,800,000 credits in the Autoshow, is one the fastest cars in Forza Horizon 5, and you can get it for free as an Accolade reward. Here’s how.

Among all the Horizon Adventure zoneswe’ll be focusing on Horizon Baja. Once you’ve completed the Baja expedition, you’ll need to get another accolade point to unlock the V10 story mission. You’ll then need to get 3-star ratings in all of the mission’s 12 parts.

Assuming you manage to achieve 3-star ratings in all the missions, then your free Koenigsegg Jesko will be awaiting you in the Accolades menu.
