Forza Horizon 5 Upgrade Heroes Spring: Festival playlist, reward cars, Photo Challenge, Treasure Hunt


We’re into the fourth and final season of Forza Horizon 5 Upgrade Heroes, with the Spring Festival Playlist presenting new challenges to enter and new cars to win. Undoubtedly the highlight this week is the return of Mercedes-Benz to the Festival Playlist, but as always the week-long clock is ticking to claim it.

With that clock counting down, let’s find out what’s in store for players in the Forza Horizon 5 Upgrade Heroes Spring Festival Playlist.

Once again the Spring season ends a week later, on 20 July at 3:30pm BST / 10:30am ET, giving you exactly a week to complete as many challenges and score as many Forza Points as you can to unlock this week’s Progress cars.

Rewards

This week’s Progress cars are the Mercedes-Benz M-B SL65 (20 points) and the legendary Eagle Speedster (40 points).

With a 6.0L Twin-Turbocharged V12 engine, the M-B SL65 is an absolute powerhouse of a car. Then there’s the 0-60mph time of 3.9 seconds, with the SL65 outrunning most high-performance cars on the straights. Don’t forget, you only have a week to claim the M-B SL65, so don’t miss out.

That’s not all available this week. Completing The Trial earns you the Lexus RC F, with the 1997 BMW M3 up for grabs in the Seasonal Championships. Placing 30th or higher in this week’s Eliminator unlocks the TVR Sagaris and you can also earn the Peugeot 205 R and 1998 Toyota Supra by completing challenges.
