Reward cars

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. 

Six more cars can be won in Festival Playlist challenges, from hot hatches to off-road warriors and some of Ken Block’s most iconic Hoonigan cars.

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.
