Forza Horizon 5: Free cars that can be unlocked with Accolades

Forza Horizon 5 has a huge car list. It would take you an age to earn enough credits to buy every car from the Autoshow.

Thankfully there is a way to get some cars for free. No, we're not talking about Barn Finds, we're talking Accolades!

These in-game achievements get you carn horns, emotes, and occasionally cars!

Here are all the vehicles you can unlock with Accolades in the game.

Accolade cars

The new stickerbook style car collection view is great. It's a much quicker way to buy cars or see how to earn them. But when a car is earned through an Accolade, it doesn't actually tell you what you need to do.

We love the new stickerbook car collection view

Fortunately we've done the hard work for you. Here's all the Accolade cars and exactly how to add them to your garage. Some of the best cars in the game are on this list. I suggest you search this page for the name of the Accolade or car you're after and we'll tell you how to get it!
