forza horizon how to buy cars

Forza Horizon 5 is packed with powerful cars that push the boundaries of performance, from real vehicles to concept cars. Some are fantastic on off-road tracks; others thrive on long stretches of highway. But if you are looking for speed, to see how high the speedometer goes, here are the 10 fastest cars in Forza Horizon 5

McLaren P1

Despite being at the bottom of the list, the McLaren P1 is no stranger to speed. If you jumped into its real-life counterpart and maxed out the speedometer, the power would still keep you in the seat. And for good reason: the twin-turbo 3.8L V8+ electric motor of the McLaren P1 and 903 hp.

In addition to its 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and 664 lb-fs of torque, the McLaren P1 can reach a maximum speed of 253 MPH. In 2.8 seconds the McLaren P1 reaches 60 MPH, so acceleration is good, but only above average.

Zenvo TSR-S

Compared to the McLaren P1, the Zenvo TSR-S outperforms it in every category, from torque to top speed. Under the hood lies the Zenvo TSR-S’ prized possession: a supercharged 5.8L V8 engine, along with 1,177 horsepower and 811 lb-ft of torque.

What that means is that the Zenvo TSR-S reaches a top speed of 265 MPH, twelve miles faster than the McLaren P1. It only takes 2.7 seconds from 0 to 60.

Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport may not be the fastest Bugatti, but it comes close. If the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport were available in Forza Horizon 5, it would be a completely different story. The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is not only one of the fastest cars in FH5, but it also has one of the fastest accelerations on our list.

The show is run by its quad-turbocharged 8.0L W16 engine, 1200 hp, 1106 lb-ft and a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. In practice, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport hits speeds of 267 MPH; 0 to 62 clocks in at 2.5 seconds.

Bugatti Chiron

Another incredibly fast car from Bugatti is the Chiron. At first glance, the Chiron and Veyron Super Sport don’t differ all that much from each other, both in terms of specifications and appearance. The quad-turbo 8.0L W16 is exchanged for a quad-turbo 8.0L W16, and the 7-speed dual-clutch transmission is swapped for a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic.

In return, the Bugatti Chiron gets 1,500 horsepower and 1,180 lb-ft of torque. Put the Bugatti Chiron on the open road and it can reach speeds of 269 mph, from 0 to 62 in just 2.3 seconds.

Porsche Taycan Turbo S

Forza Horizon 5, for the most part, shows cars that are identical to their real-life counterpart with just a few minor tweaks. What you drive in the game is very similar to how the real car handles. With the Porsche Taycan Turbo S, the game gives a huge makeover.

The real car only has a top speed of 162 MPH; that’s so pathetic compared to every car on our list. With the welcome pack in Forza Horizon 5, the Porsche Taycan Turbo S gets a new kit. At its highest possible speed, it clocks in at 270 MPH; it accelerates from 0 to 60 in just 2.6 seconds.

Hennessey Venom GT

Take the Lotus Elise 11S from Forza Horizon 4, redesign it, and what you’re left with is the Hennessey Venom GT. With a twin-turbo 7.0L V8 engine under the hood, this yellow demon boosts 1451 horsepower.

In just 2.7 seconds, the Hennessey Venom GT can reach 60 MPH. Give it an open road and the Hennessey Venom GT has a top speed of 270 MPH in Forza Horizon 5, just like its real-life counterpart.

Koenigsegg ONE:1

The strange name of the Koenigsegg ONE:1 serves a purpose and gives the driver clues about how much power the car can deliver. The ONE:1 weighs 1360 kg and 1360 horsepower (that’s horsepower), creating a perfect 1:1 power-to-weight ratio; hence the first name.

In addition to the 5.0L twin-turbocharged V8 of the Koenigsegg ONE:1, this particular Koenigsegg model will have a speedometer reading of 273 MPH. Remember that name though; it won’t be the last you hear about it.

Koenigsegg Agera RS

Koenigsegg returns to outdo the latter with what may not seem like much at first, but it matters when it comes to cars. On paper, the Koenigsegg Agera RS and the ONE:1 are practically identical. The Agera RS no longer shares the same weight-to-power ratio; in fact it is slightly heavier.

Although both models share parts, the downward forces on the Koenigsegg Agera RS give it just that little bit more speed. Give the Agera RS enough speed in Forza Horizon 5 and it will reach a maximum speed of 280 MPH.

Rimac Nevera

In a twist no one saw coming, the Rimac Nevera earns its place as the second fastest car in Forza Horizon 5, surpassing the Koenigsegg Agera RS; otherwise the Agera RS would fill this spot. Where some cars beat others by just a mile or two, the Rimac Nevera beats the Koenigsegg Agera RS (in terms of top speed) at 14 MPH.

The Rimac Nevera can reach a top speed of 294 MPH with its nearly 2000 horsepower and electric motors. The acceleration is equally impressive, climbing to 60 MPH in just 2 seconds.

Koenigsegg Jesko

Yes, another Koenigsegg model. This time it’s the Koenigsegg Jesko, the fastest car in Forza Horizon 5. Not only does it hit 300 mph, but surpass it by about 308 mph if you can find a road that’s long enough and straight enough. That’s not hard to find in the game, mind you.

Such speed is made possible thanks to the 5.0L twin-turbocharged V8 engine, in addition to the 9-speed manual transmission. Equally important is how well it handles, which is rated with a 10 (out of 10).

And that concludes our choice of the 10 fastest cars that you can drive in Forza Horizon 5† Looking for news about the next expansion for FH5? The Hot Wheels expansion was just announced at the Xbox & Bethesda Showcase 2022.
