Forza Horizon 5: the Accolade cars you should go and earn right now

There's an incredible range of cars in Forza Horizon 5. We've already been through and found every car you can win from Accolades for you.

But which are the ones to prioritise? Which cars should you go and get right now?

Let's take a look!

Koenigsegg Jesko

The Koenigsegg Jesko is the fastest car in a straight line of any in Forza Horizon 5. With this tool in your garage, you'll quickly smash the speed traps and danger signs, earning you yet more Accolades and great cars!

If you want to go faster than 300 mph, the Jesko is the car for you.

You can get this car for free and quite quickly by playing through the V10 storyline. You'll need to get three stars on every chapter to get yourself a free Jesko. The V10 chapters are fairly straightforward to earn that maximum star rating so long as you're wily about cutting corners and taking shortcuts! Once you've got your Jesko, apply the tuning from Forza legend Don Joewon Song (share code 173 256 531) and you'll quickly earn the next car on our list:

Lexus LFA

The Lexus LFA needs no introduction. It's a fantastic-looking piece of engineering from a brand known for its attention to detail. But the real reason you want this car is for its sound. Change your camera to the in-car view and give that engine hell all around Mexico and you'll be smiling.

It's not the best car in Forza Horizon 5 for racing, but driving cars like this in freeroam is what the Horizon festival is all about. Earn it by getting three stars at every speed trap. This is a pretty easy feat in the Jesko we just won!

Porsche Taycan Turbo S

While the Turbo badge may not be entirely accurate, this is a great car in this game. I've been using it for A800 racing and the four-wheel steering gives it an edge in that class in particular.

You can earn this car from discovering all 56 landmarks in the game. If you're struggling to find them, here's an interactive map that can help!

Hot Wheels Bone Shaker

This toy car is a fun piece of kit. It's also a pretty competent racing car! With those fat rear tyres, there are tunings for drag racing and rallying which are pretty competitive. Again, your Jesko can help you earn this one.

It's a funny-looking piece of kit, but they won't laugh when you beat them on the drag strip!

You'll need to get three stars on every Danger Sign to earn the Bone Shaker. There are only twenty of these and the top rating is pretty achievable on all of them.
