It’s Thursday, which means it’s time for the latest Forza Horizon 5 festival playlist update. The Forza Horizon 5 Summer Party Winter brings an array of cars to win and challenges to conquer. Headlining the Winter Festival Playlist is a popular Japanese sports car debuting in Forza for the first time.
Let’s find out what else is in store for players in the Forza Horizon 5 Summer Party Winter Festival Playlist.
Forza Horizon 5 Summer Party Winter
Forza Horizon 5 Summer Party’s Winter Festival Playlist kicks off on Thursday 3 August at 3:30pm BST / 10:30am ET.
This season will then end on Thursday 10 August 3:30pm BST / 10:30am ET. That gives you seven days to complete the playlist challenges and collect as many Forza Points as you can.
These points can be used to unlock the Series Progress rewards, which are the Ford Mustang DD (80 points) and Dodge Super Bee (160 points).
Six new cars make their Forza debut in the Summer Party season. These are the 2022 Toyota GR86, 2018 DeBerti Ford Mustang GT, 1973 Ford XB Falcon GT, 1970 Hot Wheels Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Custom, and 1973 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am SD-455.
You can also win the extreme 2019 Hennessey Camaro Exorcist by completing the new Icons of Speed Horizon Story.

A whopping eight cars are up for grabs in this week’s Festival Playlist. There's plenty of variety from a Japanese sports car to an American classic and an Australian sports saloon.
This week’s Season Progress cars are the Toyota GR86 (20 points) and 2014 McLaren 650S Spider (40 points). Toyota’s rear-wheel drive sports car is new to Forza after appearing in Gran Turismo 7.
Other cars you can win this week include the 1992 Ford Escort RS Cosworth, earned by completing The Trial. Winning the Seasonal Championships also earns you the 2017 Acura NSX and 2014 HSV GEN-F GTS.
Elsewhere, you can win the 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air in the Playground Games event and Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe in the Horizon Open Event. Don’t forget you can also unlock the vicious 2019 Hennessey Camaro Exorcist by completing all eight chapters of the Icons of Speed Horizon Story.
In addition to the prize cars, four Super Wheelspins are up for grabs in the main playlist, giving you a chance to win more prize cars. You can also get a Farid Rueda Bear Jumper for your player avatar by completing the Event Lab seasonal event.
There’s a bonus reward car for Hot Wheels Expansion players: completing the Seasonal Championship unlocks the 1973 Renault Alpine A110 1600s. If you’re fast enough, you can also win a Super Wheelspin in the Speed Zone challenge.
Rally Adventure players, on the other hand, can win a Raul Urias Cap clothing reward in the Seasonal Championship and another Super Wheelspin in the Speed Zone challenge.
