As of Update 18 the menus show 672. Two cars - the Porsche 356 Emory and the Toyota Trueno - will be released for the first time over the next two weeks. The availability of the other existing exclusive models also limits the number of cars a player may be able to own.

New cars added with Update 19:

  • 2019 LEGO Speed Champions Bugatti Chiron (LEGO Valley event reward - expansion DLC required)
  • 2010 Lexus LFA (Summer Festival Playlist 50% completion)
  • 1984 Rover SD1 Vitesse (Summer event reward)
  • 2017 Aston Martin AMR Pro (Winter Festival Playlist 50% completion)
  • 1994 Ford Supervan 3 (Winter event reward)

As of February, the Lexus LFA was among the top 20 most requested cars in the forum community wish lists thread since the game launched. The Lexus LFA marks the return of the Lexus brand to Forza^ after being absent from FM7 and the launch of FH4. Rover is a new manufacturer for the franchise, and with Lexus brings FH4's manufacturer count to 120. The AMR Pro and Supervan 3 are also new to Forza. With these five new cars, the game's search menus list a total of 677 models in the game.

The new cars were profiled in the Series 19 livestream and announcement article:


2019 Aston Martin Vulcan AMR Pro
They call it Aston Martin’s wildest car ever. The pride of British supercars, indeed the first one, the Vulcan was first revealed in 2015 with an initial run of only 24 cars, but you can get your hands on the wheel of the latest model thanks to the Series 19 update.

The AMR Pro track package brings all of Aston Martin’s racing advances to bear in a sleek package, on a car that didn’t even see on-track competition until 2018, at the third Le Mans Racing Festival. The package includes an enhanced rear wing, large dive planes, arch louvres and turning vanes, which increase steering, downforce, and balance.

2010 Lexus LFA
A supercar from Lexus is a rare thing. The LFA was a Halo Car, meant to change the way Lexus made cars, with principles developed for the LFA trickling down to every other car that Lexus produced.
The LFA itself didn’t stick around for long, but its influence is still felt in every Lexus built.
The car packs a 4.8L V10 that hit 0-60 in 3.6 seconds, a top speed of 202 mph, and boasts an incredibly unique driving experience. Toyota CEO Akio Toyoda believed that the ultimate Lexus should connect with its owner. That’s why the LFA came into being. The car is an aerodynamic miracle, as fun to feel as it is to drive.

1984 Rover SD1
When the Specialist Division 1, or Rover 3500, was first designed by British Leyland as a successor to the P6, the key was simplicity. That meant a live rear axle instead of De Dion-type rear suspension and a redesigned Rover V8 which emphasized torque over horsepower, rather than the newer 2.2L four cylinder. It’s been called the best-designed British car ever, taking cues from the likes of Ferrari and Maserati, but was often plagued with production issues early in its run. As a result, by 1984, the SD1 had seen some cosmetic and mechanical changes, as well as an expansion to a four cylinder model.

1994 Ford Supervan3
First built in the 1970’s as promotional vehicles, the Supervan combined Ford Transit vans with sports car underpinnings, for some reason. It made its first appearance at Brands Hatch, before experiencing two more iterations between 1971 and 1994. That was the year that the Supervan 3 made its debut, sporting the V8 that would eventually be used in the Benetton F1 car.

If you already own the LEGO Speed Champions expansion pack, with the Series 19 update you’ll see a new event in the northeast corner for the Forza Horizon map, provided you’ve unlocked the Master Builder’s House. Complete this event to unlock the 2017 LEGO Bugatti Chiron.

If you do not already own the LEGO DLC, you really should. You can still try out the new car for free, however, by checking out the Series 19 Rivals Event. That’s in addition to a new Season Championship featuring an all-LEGO lineup. Give it a shot!

New cars added with Update 20:

  • 2019 McLaren Speedtail (Summer Festival Playlist 50% completion)
  • 1933 Napier Napier-Railton (Autumn event reward)
  • 1969 Toyota 2000GT (Winter Festival Playlist 50% completion)

Series 20 adds three new cars as exclusive models; the McLaren and Napier are new to Forza, while the Toyota is returning from FM6 and previous games. As of this month, the McLaren Speedtail is among the top 25 most requested cars in the forum community wish lists thread since the game launched. Napier is a new manufacturer for the franchise, bringing FH4's manufacturer count to 121. With these three new cars, the game's search menus list a total of 680 models in the game menus.

The new cars were profiled in the Series 20 livestream and announcement article:


McLaren Speedtail
The name “Speedtail” should be taken seriously with this beauty. McLaren’s fastest car ever built is designed to be all slipstream, with aerodynamics playing into every feature, from the custom wheel covers to the single-piece rear chassis. What better way to take advantage of its 1000+ horsepower hybrid engine and reported 402 mph top speed?

This speed demon is available as a reward car for completing 50% of the Summer Seasonal Playlist. (Available between March 12 and March 19)

Napier Railton
In 1933, Reid Railton strapped a plane engine to the most rudimentary chassis he could, and the Napier-Railton was born.

This missile on wheels broke all kinds of records in the few years after that, most notably the all-time lap record at the Brooklands oval in England, which it held until the oval was repurposed for military use at the onset of World War II.

The Napier-Railton gets its name from its creator, Reid Railton, as well as its engine, a 24-liter W12 Napier airplane engine, the most powerful engine available at the time it was built. It’s a truly one-of-its-kind vehicle.

This unique wonder is obtainable by competing the Autumn Seasonal Championship “Cult Courier” (Available between March 19th and March 26th)

Toyota 2000GT
A halo car is designed to raise the bar of what an automaker can create, with the intention of allowing those designs to influence everything else the company builds. That’s the case with the 2000GT, which represented the first collaboration between Toyota and Yamaha. It served as a coming-out party for Japanese car manufacturers when it debuted in 1965, demonstrating that they could compete with their European counterparts in style and performance and raising Toyota’s profile above its relatively vanilla production history up to that point.

Inspired by Jaguar and originally intended for Nissan, the Toyota 2000GT is now the most expensive and collectible Japanese-designed car in the world. It was famously driven by Aki in the 1967 Bond film You Only Die Twice, with custom modifications designed to accommodate Sean Connery’s large frame.

As of this month, the Mercedes-AMG E 63 S is among the top 20 most requested cars in the forum community wish lists thread since the game launched. With these six new cars, the game's search menus list a total of 686 models in the game menus.

The new cars were profiled in the Series 21 livestream and announcement article:

2013 Formula Drift Corvette 777

In 2018, Formula Drift driver, Matt Field of Drift Cave, replaced his Nissan 240SX (also featured in Forza Horizon 4) with the surprising choice of a 2013 C6 Corvette; specifically, one recovered from flood damage in Georgia. He documented the entire build process to get the car ready for the 2018 Formula Drift season. featured in-game sports a 7.0L, 1050bhp engine with added Nitrous and a carbon fiber body for maximum performance. You can drift around the Festival in this custom wonder by completing 50% of the Summer Festival Playlist.

2018 Formula Drift #117 599 GTB Fiorano
Another car built and rebuilt for drifting competition, the infamous 599-based drift machine sports a V12 900+ hp engine with twin turbochargers and widebody kit, emphasis on the WIDE. The base car is already a beast, but the kit it has been outfitted with for drift competition just adds on to its dimensions.This 599 made its debut in the 2018 Formula Drift season, driven by Federico Sceriffo who nicknamed it “Fiorella”. You can get this car as a reward for completing the Spring Seasonal Championship “Ferrari Rocher”

1992 Toyota Supra Mark 3
The Toyotas keep on rolling back into Forza Horizon 4. This latest addition is the first Supra to sport the name independently of its Celica roots. The Mk. 3 makes a great drift car and features some spiffy pop-up headlights, but upon its release it was never made available outside of Japan, making it a rare addition to the Festival lineup. For the first time outside of Japan, get this car as a reward for Autumn Seasonal Championship “Overnight Parts”.

2018 Mercedes-AMG E 63 S

The AMG models before this one were not known for being terribly driver-friendly. That’s why the 2018 E63 model, a successor to the previous 6.3L engine version, is such an exception. Its automatic four-wheel drive was intended to make it the most accessible version of this line to date, following a lineage of rear-wheel drive manual versions. It’s not the most powerful car in its class, but the efficiency with which it uses its available power makes it an incredible performer. Complete 50% of the Winter Festival Playlist to score this car.

2018 Ferrari Portofino

Paradoxically considered an “entry-level Ferrari”, this car toes the line between modern super car and high-end sports car, while still costing something like $250,000 to own. Named for the Italian village of Portofino, this car is packing a 3.9 Twin Turbo V8 that outputs 590 hp. It serves as a successor to the commercially-minded Ferrari California, meant to be faster, lighter and more stylish. Photograph 100 Cars in Horizon Promo mode to earn this car.

1995 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 by Guntherwerks

Before building the this custom car, Guntherwerks was known primarily as a manufacturer of after-market wheels and other parts for luxury vehicles. This rebuilt Porsche 911 Carerra 2, also known as the 400R, represents their first custom car build. 25 of these performance vehicles were built, making them incredibly rare. Guntherwerks imagined what a GT3 RS version of the 993 could look like when they designed the 400R. The goal in the Rothsport-built engine and lightweight body were performance above all, which is unusual in the world of custom luxury cars, which normally emphasize comfort over speed.

New cars added with Update 22:

  • 1999 Ford Racing Puma
  • 1988 Mitsubishi Starion ESI-R
  • 1990 Nissan Pulsar GTI-R
  • 1991 Peugeot 205 Rallye
  • 1992 Toyota Celica GT-Four RC ST185
  • 1994 Toyota Celica GT-Four ST205

Content Update 22 adds six cars as exclusive models, available to collect as rewards in the Series 22 Festival Playlist. The Starion has been in the Forza Motorsport series (FM4, FM7) and the two Celicas were previously in FH3; the Puma, Pulsar, and 205 Rallye are new to Forza. As of this month, the Pulsar and the Starion were among the top 100 most requested cars in the forum community wish lists thread since the game launched. With these six new cars, the game's search menus list a total of 692 models in the game menus (691 for Horizon Promo).

All six start as C-class. The Starion is classed with Retro Sports Cars, the 205 Rallye as Retro Hot Hatch, and the others as Retro Rally.

The new cars were profiled in the Series 22 and Forza Monthly livestreams and Update 22 article:

1990 Nissan Pulsar GTI-R

The GTI-R version of the Pulsar was homologated specifically to give Nissan an edge over the dominant rally cars of the Group A era, specifically from Toyota and Ford. Its rally career was relatively short, but it remains dominant against similar cars of the time. It shares its engine with the Nissan Silvia, a 227 hp turbocharged 2.0L inline four engine, which gives it a 0-60 time of about five seconds. Complete 50% of the Spring Playlist

1999 Ford Racing Puma

Only 500 of a planned 1,000 Racing Pumas were ever built, and only in the UK. The rarity of the Racing Puma, initially introduced as the Puma RS, makes it a valuable find. This was the final Limited Edition of the Puma produced and it features an advanced 4-piston motorsport braking system, a beefed-up body with lightweight aluminum components, and a racing-inspired interior. Complete Seasonal Championship “Cool Cats”

1990 Toyota Celica ST185

The car that kicked off Toyota’s reign in the Group A world, the ST185 would ultimately win 16 World Rallycross series. This was the first Celica to come out after the split from Supra, which resulted in a more purely rally car versus the sportier Supra. The Celica hits the sweet spot between the straight lines and hard edges of 80’s era cars and the curvier 90’s style. Complete 50% of the Winter Playlist

1994 Toyota Celica ST205

The 205 was an evolution of the previous car on this list, moving its style fully into the 1990’s and embracing the modern aerodynamic curves of the era. This car is famous for many things, not the least of which was the iconic Castrol livery it sported in competition and for being the cover car for SEGA Rally Championship 1995. The most powerful version of the Celica at the time, the homologated special that was necessary for WRC contention sported a 2.0L turbocharged inline-4 engine producing 252 horsepower with all wheel drive and “Super-Strut Suspension.” Complete Seasonal Championship “What’s the Word on the Street”

1991 Peugeot 205 Rallye

A result of Peugeot’s desire to homologate the 205 to compete in rally, the 205 Rallye sports a 100hp engine that is compensated in power by an incredibly lightweight body, especially in the cheaper performance version. The interior was stripped of anything that wasn’t strapped down, and even some things that were, in order to maximize performance. Complete Seasonal Championship “Stardew Rallye”

1988 Mitsubishi Starion ESi-R

There’s some speculation around the origins of the name Starion. Is it a reference to the constellation Orion? Is it a swipe at the Ford Mustang (Starion = Stallion)? Hard to say! The Starion was an association project with Chrysler, who put out the similarly built Conquest in North America. The ESi-R version first built in 1986, which featured a widebody kit, was intended for rally competition, specifically the short-lived Group B.

New cars added with Update 23:

  • 1974 Toyota Celica GT
  • 1974 Toyota Corolla SR5
  • 1995 Toyota MR2 GT
  • 1989 Toyota MR2 SC

Content Update 23 added four cars as exclusive models, available to collect as rewards in the Series 23 Festival Playlist Winter and Spring seasons. The Celica and Corolla were previously in Forza Horizon 3 and the MR2s were previously in Forza Motorsport 6. The MR2 has been among the top 100 most requested cars in the forum community wish lists thread after previous requested models were satisfied. With these four cars, the game's search menus list a total of 696 models in the game menus (695 for Horizon Promo).

The MR2 GT is a B-class car while the other three are D-class. MR2 GT comes with Aftermarket body part options, and the Celica has a widebody kit as well as Street level body parts from Toyota.

The cars were profiled in the Update 23 article.


1973 Toyota Corolla SR5

In 1970, Toyota’s second generation of Corollas arrived and by 1973 that included the SR5 coupe model, which was only made in ’73 and ‘74. Sold in Japan as the Corolla Levin, the SR5 was intended to expand Toyota’s reach into new markets, which explains its unusual-at-the-time design: metal fender flares, unique front struts and springs, and a thicker front sway bar. It sported a 1.6L four-cylinder engine with five-speed transmission. Complete the Seasonal Championship “The Corolla Express” to unlock.

1974 Toyota Celica GT

The Celica GT was a JDM legend that did much to pioneer the international market for Japanese imports. It was a direct descendant and much more accessible version of the 2000GT and at the time was comparable to the Mustang, which had been reduced in size significantly in recent years. That being said, the Celica only weighed about 2,200lbs, while the Mustang quickly moved on to bigger and heavier engines. The Celica housed a 2.0L four-cylinder that put out 90 hp (versus the Mustang’s 105 hp). Complete 50% of the Spring Playlist to unlock.

1989 Toyota MR2 SC

Dubbed a “budget exotic car”, the Mister Two was Toyota’s mid-engine entry in the late 80’s. It featured the familiar 4A-GE engine found in the AE86; a 16-valve, twin-cam 1.6-liter inline-four and in 1989, a supercharger that bumped it up to 145 hp and shaved a second off of it’s 0-60 time. That supercharger required certain aspects of the MR2, such as the springs and wheels, to be reinforced, plus the addition of raised vents on the engine cover. Complete 50% of the Winter Playlist to unlock.

1995 Toyota MR2 GT

In 1991, the MR2 received a full redesign that made it sportier and more Ferrari-like in appearance. By ‘95, due to rising prices and insurance premiums, it was ending its production run, making this model especially prized by collectors. The GT featured a 2.0 L 200 hp five-speed engine mounted behind the seats that put it on equal footing with cars like the Ferrari 348. The MR2 name would make its return when Toyota attached it to the Spyder convertible. Complete the Seasonal Championship “Track Toyotas” to unlock.

New cars added with Update 24:

  • 1977 Ford #5 Escort RS1800 MkII
  • 1970 Ford GT70
  • 1985 Mazda RX-7 GSL-SE
  • 2019 Zenvo TSR-S

Content Update 24 added four cars as exclusive models, available to collect as rewards in the Series 24 Festival Playlist. The RX-7 has was previously in Forza Motorsport games (but this is its first Horizon appearance) while the other three are new to Forza. The Zenvo has been among the top 100 most requested cars in the forum community wish lists thread after previous requested models were satisfied.

In stock setup, the Zenvo is already one of the highest horsepower engines in the game with 1,177 hp and 811 ft-lb of torque (compared to 1,086 and 1,054 in the Zenvo ST1). The TSR-S is found in the Hypercars division; the RX-7 in Retro Sports Cars, and the Fords in Classic Rally.

With these four cars, the game's search menus list a total of 700 models in the game menus (699 for Horizon Promo).

The new cars were profiled in the Series 24 Update and Forza Monthly livestreams as well as the announcement article:

2019 Zenvo TSR-S

The Zenvo TSR-S is a superlative hypercar in every sense. 1177 horsepower out of a twin-supercharged V8, Zenvo claims 0-124mph in 6.8 secs. The TSR-S’s power is matched by its handling, which is aided by a unique hydraulic rear wing that doesn’t do what wings are supposed to do. In fact, at a 2019 test at Spa, the car was black flagged because track officials thought it was malfunctioning! The wing tilts left and right to better distribute pressure and increase downforce on curves. It’s counterintuitive and a little hard to explain, so we’ll let Zenvo founder Troels Vollertsen spell it out: “I’d been thinking that maybe we could alter the downforce so we could put more pressure back across to the unloaded inside wheel while cornering, so you not only get downforce, but also create an effect like an anti-roll bar.” (via Top Gear) The second S denotes a street-legal cross between Zenvo’s track-only TSR, which had a fixed wing, and the TS1 GT road car. Zenvo is only building five of these cars every year, but you can get it by completing the first Photo Challenge.

1970 Ford GT70

You know the story of the GT40, the Le Mans winner and recent movie star, but have you heard of the prototype GT70? Maybe not if you’re from outside the UK. The idea was for Ford of Europe to replicate the success the GT40 program had on the track, but on the rally stage, following a string of wins for the Escort throughout the 1960s. The problem, and why the car might be so little-known, was that to qualify for rally competition according to FIA regulations, a car had to have a minimum production run of 500 homologated cars. The GT70 had six. It fell victim to circumstance; the WRC rules changed, production costs climbed, and the Escort continued to improve performance, making the GT70 an expensive “what if?” The GT70 never saw any real rally competition, but you can change that by completing the Seasonal Championship “Up Your Street”.

1977 Ford #5 Escort RS1800 Mk II

The #5 Ford Escort is perhaps the most iconic rally car of all time; built to Group 4 spec, it won the first WRC world championship for drivers in 1979, while being driven by Swedish rally driver Björn Waldegård, aka Walle, sporting the iconic British Airways livery. Between 1977 and 1979, driving the #5 Escort, Waldegård would win WRC races in Kenya, Wales, Sweden, Greece, and Canada; some of the most punishing rally races in the world To this day, Waldegård still holds the record for the oldest driver to win a World Rally Championship event, and holds 16 total WRC wins to his name. Add to the #5 Escort’s victories by completing 50% of the Winter Playlist.

1985 Mazda RX-7

Mazda and the rotary engine – a synonymous pairing best represented by the Mazda RX-7; the loud, high-revving rotary, paired with the lightweight, perfectly balanced, incredibly aerodynamic body. The already powerful Mazda twin-rotor 100 hp engine saw a further evolution with the 1985 redesign that brought the RX-7 more in line with the likes of Porsche. It also bumped the power of that rotary design up to 146 hp and added a turbocharger. Complete the Midnight Mazdaness Seasonal Championship to grab this rotary icon.
