2021 Rimac Nevera

New Cars Forza Horizon 5 Rimac
Earn 20 PTS during Week 1 “Summer” Season on the Midnights at Horizon Festival Playlist. Available from Mar. 30 – Apr. 6.

Since the Rimac Concept Two first debuted in Forza Horizon 4 in 2019, the Forza community has pushed this incredible 1,914-horsepower hypercar to the limit and defined new levels of speed. Now it’s time to see how the production model propels the driving experience to the next level. Considered the fastest electric production car in the world, the Rimac Nevera – the name derived from the Croatian language word to describe the unexpected short-burst lightning storms that occur along the Adriatic Coast in summer – set a record-breaking top speed of 258mph (412kph) in November 2022.

Rimac had already simulated this impressive figure for its C-Two in 2018 while it was in active development, however it was Miro Zrnčević, Rimac’s Chief Test and Development Driver, who achieved the same unprecedented speed in the real-world four years on. While 150 units of the Nevera are destined for the production line in Zagreb, their top speed is reduced to a still impressive 219mph (352kph). Its full potential can be unlocked by Rimac for special events in controlled environments. This process involves fitting new specialized tires, an essential upgrade for safely achieving higher speeds.

Also established as the world’s fastest accelerating production car, the Nevera with its four Rimac-designed electric motors can reach 0-60mph in just 1.85 seconds, and blast beyond 100mph in 4.3 seconds. It even features a “Drift Mode” that disables the front motors to allow the car to drift. This feature is available in Forza Horizon 5 and is accessible in the same way as race mode and convertible options on other vehicles, by pushing in the Left Stick. Now the only question that remains is what speed record Forza fans will set on the Mexican highway once they’re seated behind the wheel.

2022 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing

Earn 20 PTS during Week 2 “Autumn” Season on the Midnights at Horizon Festival Playlist. Available from Apr. 6 – Apr. 13.

As the larger, more extreme and even faster sibling of the Blackwing duo, the Cadillac CT5-V is the V8-powered sports sedan that automotive dreams are made of. Its high-performance numbers are simply astounding with 668-horsepower and 659 lb-ft of torque. That means it’s fast, very fast actually. For top speed, the CT5-V breaks the 200mph barrier, while Car and Driver testing has penned in the 0-60mph statistic at 3.6 seconds, with the 100mph target coming in at 7.7 seconds. That’s almost two seconds faster than the CT4-V! It’s also sporting the same racing-inspired trimming as its smaller counterpart to deliver incredible downforce and ensure a smooth and nimble drive. Simply put, there’s no lifting this one off the asphalt, until it takes on the more elevated terrain of Forza Horizon 5’s landscapes of course.

2021 Lexus LC 500

Earn 20 PTS during Week 3 “Winter” Season on the Midnights at Horizon Festival Playlist. Available from Apr. 13– Apr. 20. This car features an optional Liberty Walk (LB Holdings Co., Ltd) body kit.

The Lexus LC has been in production since 2017 and has iteratively evolved with each model since then. The 2021 spec trims down on the weight and improves the suspension system to ensure the car feels more connected to the road, offering a more robust and stable driving experience while retaining the luxurious looks and feel that Lexus is known for. In fact, the “LC” stands for “Luxury Coupe,” and the line itself replaced the SC, which was formerly Lexus’ luxury car of choice from 1991 until 2010. Also new for 2021 is cornering assist with braking control, so you can maximize its 5.0-liter, naturally aspirated V8 with confidence. Producing 471-horsepower and 398 lb-ft. of torque at its peak, the LC achieves 0-60mph in only 4.4 seconds and remains a testament to Lexus’ focus of elegance in driving.

2022 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing

Earn 20 PTS during Week 4 “Spring” Season on the Midnights at Horizon Festival Playlist. Available from Apr. 20 – Apr. 27.

The successor to the beloved Cadillac ATS-V is here. With both all-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive platforms available and a 3.6-liter twin turbocharged V6 engine under the hood, the Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing is the next must have addition to your Forza Horizon 5 garage. Or perhaps that title belongs to the more formidable CT5-V Blackwing, which is also coming to the game. Both are excellent choices for cruising and racing around Mexico’s asphalt roads, and with a low-level spoiler and launch control on each, they’re also the perfect choice for drag racing. Power wise, the CT4-V delivers 472-horsepower with 445 lb-ft of torque, which means, according to Car and Driver testing, it can go from standstill to 60mph in 4 seconds, and to 100mph in 9.4 seconds. Cadillac estimates a top speed of 189mph. It’s a mean machine in a smaller package to the CT5-V, which makes it ideal for just about everything.
