Current unicorn and contest opportunities in Forza Horizon thread
Distribution of unicorns in Forza Horizon has ended. This thread remains as a history of contests and unicorn giveaways.

What is a Unicorn car?
A Unicorn is a label given to certain (rare and hardly seen) car models that exist within the game code but are not available to buy at the Autoshow or in the Marketplace. Unicorns are the same for standard and VIP players. LCE, Season Pass, and other DLC packs do not add any unicorns to the game, though unicorns may or may not be among cars gifted to reward VIPs for their status.
  • The only way to obtain and own unicorns was via gift directly from Turn 10.
  • XBox Live Gold status is required to obtain them because Gold is required to accept and download messaged gifts.
  • When a unicorn is gifted to your Message Center, the message must be accepted to add the car to your garage. Gift messages expire after 30 days of no action.
  • Credits are not required to receive them, and you may own duplicate unicorn models.
  • They cannot be gifted to other players (you'll simply get a "this car is locked" message if you try).
  • They can be shared to a Club garage (storefront-bought liveries must be removed first).
  • They can be upgraded and painted. Designs for unicorns can be uploaded or purchased from the Storefront.
  • They can be traded in at the Autoshow for 100 credits plus half the discounted value of purchased upgrades.
  • Turn 10 does not send replacements for lost unicorns. If you lose yours to user error, hardware error, or anything else, that unicorn is gone. You can however participate in other opportunities to gain a new unicorn.


Forza Horizon Unicorn list (7 total):
  • 1969 Ferrari Dino 246 GT
  • 2009 Ford Fiesta Zetec S
  • 1991 Honda CR-X SiR
  • 1971 Lotus Elan Sprint
  • 2010 Mazda MX-5 Superlight
  • 2012 MINI John Cooper Works Coupe
  • 2010 Saleen S5S Raptor


How can I get a unicorn?
Update: As of October 2014, johniwanna is no longer accepting gift requests in News Discussion threads, and it appears that T10 is no longer hosting photo and livery contests for Forza Horizon. There may still be some contests with unicorn prizes sponsored by T10, and as those events come up they will be posted in this thread.

This is probably a really dumb question but how do I add a post to the discussion? I don't see anywhere to add a comment or anything.

Sorry about that Shady, I linked the article instead of the discussion thread. You'll usually find a link to the discussion thread in the article, but can also find it by going directly to the News Discussion forum under the All Forums menu.

Lol. That explains alot doesn't it? Sorry, I just started using these forums not too long ago and still am trying to find my way around the site.

By the way, there's another unicorn car photo contest in Forza Horizon. I believe the message said that winners are announced on Feb. 16 and the top 3 get a unicorn car. I didn't see it posted in this thread so I figured I'd mention it.

Game With Dev

  • Per the 1-31-14 Week in Review, "our next Forza Game With Dev event is happening on Wednesday, Feb. 5 from 2 – 4 p.m. Pacific. We’ll be playing Forza Motorsport 5 naturally, but we’ll also be making time in Forza Motorsport 4 and Forza Horizon so everyone is included in the fun."
  • If you haven't participated in a GWD before, it works by the developers hosting a custom lobby, announcing where to find the lobby, then running a few races with the room before starting a new lobby in another game mode. You have to be quick to join as these lobbies fill up, but if you get in (and maybe win), you may be selected to receive a unicorn. Watch for more details, especially the ForzaMotorsport Twitter account.



February Contest Schedule
This list was announced in the 1-31-14 Week in Review. Contest threads can be found in the Community Events Forum on the first day of each contest period.

Photo Contests:
  • Feb. 3 - 10
  • Feb. 11 - 17
  • Feb. 18 - 26

Livery Contest:
  • Feb. 3 - 26

How do they announce that they are doing a lobby? Do they join a public one and say "Hey, I'm a Forza Dev, I'm hosting a lobby with the oppurtunity to get a unicorn car and this is how you can find the lobby" and then you just search for a lobby with those settings?

Game With Devs:
"Only roughly 20 minutes to go until our next Game With Dev. #Forza5, #ForzaHorizon, #Forza4, it's all happening! http://www.twitch.tv/forzamotorsport " https://twitter.com/Forz...tatus/431180422114836480

starts 2pm Pacific (5pm Eastern)

In the Twitch room, they're not streaming, they're just using the chat box to tell you which lobbies to look for. Watch for announcements by Johniwanna, Phredesign, Mechberg, LV, and Helios.
