Forza Horizon 5 Italian Automotive Winter: Festival Playlist, reward cars, Treasure Hunt, Photo Challenge

It’s week three of Forza Horizon 5 Italian Automotive. Another new season brings a new set of reward cars to win and challenges to beat over the next seven days in the Autumn playlist. Two reward cars can only be won in the Autumn playlist, so don’t miss out.

Here’s a full breakdown of everything you can win in the Forza Horizon 5 Italian Automotive Winter Festival Playlist.

Forza Horizon 5 Italian Automotive Winter

The Forza Horizon 5 Italian Automotive Winter playlist begins on Thursday 31 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 7 September at 3:30pm BST / 10:30 am ET.

Italian Automotive (Series 24) brings back 16 Italian cars from Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Abarth, and Lancia from past Forza games. Some are only available in the Autoshow and others can only be won in weekly playlist challenges for a limited time.

If you want more iconic Italian cars, the premium Italian Exotics Car Pack also includes seven new-to-Forza cars.

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: earn 80 points to win the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ and 160 points to earn the Ferrari F12TR.

Rewards

In keeping with the theme, every Autumn playlist reward car is Italian. This week’s Season Progress cars are the Abarth 131 (20 points) and Alfa Romeo 8C (40 points). These cars were not added to the Autoshow, so you only have seven days to unlock them.

As well as new cars, you can also win up to four Super Wheelspins in the main festival playlist plus a Pop ‘N’ Lock Emote, Raul Urias Horizon Cap, and Police Siren Car Horn.
