Forza Horizon 5 Italian Automotive Autumn: Festival Playlist, reward cars, Photo Challenge

It’s Thursday, which means it’s time for a new weekly Forza Horizon 5 festival playlist. The Italian Automotive Autumn playlist gives you a chance to win six iconic Italian cars in a fresh set of events and challenges to conquer over the next seven days. 

Let’s take a look at what awaits players in the Forza Horizon 5 Italian Automotive Autumn Festival Playlist. 

Forza Horizon 5 Italian Automotive Autumn

The Forza Horizon 5 Italian Automotive Autumn playlist begins on Thursday 24 August at 3:30 pm BST / 10:30 am ET.

You then have one week to collect as many rewards as you can until the season ends on Thursday 31 August 3:30pm BST / 10:30 am ET.

Italian Automotive (Series 24) marks the return of 16 Italian cars from Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Abarth, and Lancia from past Forza games. Some can be bought at the Autoshow, while others can only be won in weekly playlist challenges for a limited time. There’s also a premium Italian Exotics Car Pack with seven new-to-Forza cars to add to your garage.

For more details on changes and improvements introduced in this series, check out the Forza Horizon 5 Italian Automotive patch notes.

As always, two series progress cars are up for grabs at the end of the series: earning 80 points wins you the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ and 160 points to earn the Ferrari F12TR.

Rewards

As you would expect, every reward car in the Autumn playlist is from an Italian manufacturer. Starting with the Season Progress cars, you can win the 2016 Abarth 695 hot hatch at 20 points and the sporty Alfa Romeo 4C at 40 points.
