The Most Expensive Cars In Forza Horizon 5: Shelby Cobra, Jaguar D-Type, And More

In Forza Horizon 5, the most expensive cars will cost you hours and hours of smart planning. You’ll need to pinch pennies and forego spending needlessly on lesser cars and trucks in order to earn the game’s most costly vehicles. In total, there are eight cars that are valued in-game at more than 10 million credits, which is twice as costly as even the most expensive mansion in the game. These flashy cars don’t come cheap. Here are the most expensive cars in Forza Horizon 5.

1965 Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe – 30,000,000 credits

This is also the fastest car in GTA 3–just not in name.

If the difference between the Shelby’s price and that of the next most expensive car was itself another car’s price, that car would also land on this list. That’s how expensive this special Cobra is.

You may recognize this one from Ferris Bueller's ill-fated joy ride.

What’s a Ferrari without the red coat of paint? This isn’t the fastest Ferrari in the game, but who needs extra speed with all this style?

  • Handling: 4
  • Acceleration: 3.4
  • Launch: 2.3
  • Braking: 2.8

The Testa Rossa technically makes Ferrari the only manufacturer on this list more than once, and it comes from the same year as the other. That must’ve been a great year for the brand.

  • Handling: 4.4
  • Acceleration: 4.5
  • Launch: 4.2
  • Braking: 2.9

I'll stop at nothing, see!  It's my race to win, see!

This is one of those cars you see in silent movies where the bad guy is hunched over wearing a white cap and donning a rather elaborate mustache indicative of his role as the antagonist.

  • Handling: 4.2
  • Acceleration: 4.5
  • Launch: 3.4
  • Braking: 4.7
  • Off-road: 4.2

1997 McLaren F1 GT – 15,000,000 credits

Half the price of the Shelby and twice as cool, if you ask me.

McLaren was a late bloomer to the supercar space, but by now even this 1997 special car could be called retro, even if I’m uncomfortable admitting that math.

  • Speed: 8.4
  • Handling: 8.2
  • Acceleration: 6.2
  • Launch: 5.8
  • Braking: 7
  • Off-road: 4.3

1973 Porsche #3 917 LH – 15,000,000 credits

Yup, that's definitely a 1973 paint job.

You had to expect Porsche to show up eventually, right? If you missed it, the brand also makes an appearance on the list of the fastest cars in Forza Horizon 5.

  • Handling: 5.9
  • Acceleration: 7.2

Rounding out the top eight is the Ford GT, which has been reimagined plenty over the years but has always managed to maintain something quite like this early, eye-catching form.

  • Handling: 5
  • Acceleration: 4.3
  • Launch: 3.5
  • Braking: 3.8
  • Off-road: 4.7
