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.

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.
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.
These aren't the only cars you can win this week, however. Completing The Trial unlocks the legendary Lancia Stratos and you can also win the iconic Ferrari F40 in the EventLab challenge.
Elsewhere, the Lamborghini LM 002 (nicknamed the Lambo Rambo) and Ferrari 812 Superfast are up for grabs in the Seasonal Championships.
On top of the prize cars, you can also win up to four Super Wheelspins, a First Pump Emote, and a Sea of Thieves Car Horn.
There are no extra reward cars on offer for expansion players this week, but you can still win a couple of cosmetic items.
For Hot Wheels owners, completing the Seasonal Championship unlocks the Hot Wheels Monster Truck Car Horn. There’s also a Super Wheelspin reward for beating the Danger Sign challenge.
Rally Adventure players can also pick up an Epitaph White Logo Relaxed Tee by winning the Seasonal Championship and a Super Wheelspin in the Speed Trap challenge.
Photo Challenge: #MaseratiFestival
This week’s photo challenge asks you to take a photo of any Maserati at the Apex Outpost. Your reward for completing this challenge is the Fred V Grafix Car Horn.
