With a Series called FORDzathon, you would expect the Season Progress cars to only be Fords. That’s not the case though as one of them is the Renault Clio R.S. 16 Concept at 20 points. You can also earn the Ford GT ’05 at 40 points.

Reward cars

Six more Fords can also be won in this week’s festival playlist. Complete The Trial, and the ferocious Ford Shelby GT350R is yours.

For Hot Wheels expansion owners, the Ford F-150 Raptor ’17 is up for grabs if you complete the Seasonal Championship. Completing additional challenges also wins you two Super Wheelspins and the Green Pinata Head clothing item.
