The Forza Horizon 5 Horizon Wilds Takeover Summer season starts on 2 March at 2:30pm GMT / 9:30am ET and ends on 9 March at 2:30pm GMT / 9:30am ET.
One of this week’s Season Progress reward cars is a rally legend. At 20 points, you can win the #2 Audi Sport quattro S1, one of the most iconic Group B rally cars that dominated the WRC 1980s thanks to its pioneering 4WD system. The high-performance BMW X6 M ’15 SUV is also unlocked at 40 points.

Completing The Trial gives you the Honda Civic Type R '18, while conquering the Utopia Gardens Event Lab event unlocks Ken Block’s Hoonigan Ford Escort Group A rally monster from Gymkhana 10.
You can also add the Ford Racing Puma ’99 and Ken Block’s Hoonigan Gymkhana 9 Ford Focus RS RX to your collection by completing the Seasonal Championships. Completing a Horizon Open Customised Race in any Hoonigan car unlocks the vintage Hoonigan Chevrolet Bel Air ’55.
