The third season of Forza Horizon 5 Upgrade Heroes is here, with the Winter Festival Playlist bringing a collection of new cars to win and challenges to conquer.

Without further ado, let’s find out what’s in store for players over the next week in the Forza Horizon 5 Upgrade Heroes Winter Festival Playlist.

When it was new, this super SUV could outrun a Ferrari 348ts in a quarter mile. You only have a week to claim it though, so don’t miss out.

That’s not all you can win this week. Completing The Trial earns you the 2015 Audi RS 6 Avant and you can also win the 1987 Nissan Skyline GTS-R (R31) and 2008 BMW M3 in the Seasonal Championships.

Completing this week’s Horizon Open event also unlocks the legendary 2005 Honda NSX-R. Don’t forget you can also unlock the Nissan 350Z Low Car and Nissan 350Z Low Car in the Donut Media HiLow Horizon Story.

As for cosmetic rewards, Donut Media fans can get Donut Media Pop Up Headlights and a Leaf Cap in this week’s Event Lab challenges. There’s also a "I'm the best at Games" Forza Link up for grabs in this week’s Playground Games event along with a handful of Super Wheelspins.

Expansion rewards

In addition to the main festival playlist rewards, Rally Adventure expansion owners can bag a Super Wheelspin by completing the Speed Trap and a Raptor Rawr car horn in the Seasonal Championship.

Hot Wheels Expansion players, on the other hand, can win a Hot Wheels Cap for the avatar and a Super Wheelspin in the Speed Zone.

Photo Challenge: #ItsTurboTime!

This week’s Photo Challenge is as simple as they get. All you have to do is snap a photo of the 1982 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.3 at the Horizon Rush Outpost. This will reward you with a Mo Power Baby Forza Link.
