Forza Horizon 5: The 20 Best Cars For Jumps, Ranked

Playground Games has delivered again, with the largest, sleekest, and perhaps most thrilling installment of Forza Horizon to date. Taking place in the lush, expansive, and varied setting of Mexico, Forza Horizon 5 captivates players with tons of fun events, exciting challenges, and awe-inspiring sights to see. Making its return are the intimidating, yet exhilarating Danger Signs. These task players with going the distance across various ramps, hills, and cliffs scattered about.

Upgrading vehicles to improve performance is just one exciting feature in Forza Horizon 5, and these are the best cars to upgrade

Factoring in these Danger Signs and PR Stunts — as well as the generally bumpy, mountainous terrain of Mexico — there’s no shortage of wild rides to be had in FH5. Thus, it’s a good idea to find cars that can sufficiently handle these leaps of faith when sifting through the extensive lineup of cars in the game.

Updated November 28, 2023 by Stephen LaGioia: Following the blazing trails of its predecessors, Forza Horizon 5 hit the ground running and hasn’t looked back since. Fast forwarding to the present, and there’s an absolute bounty of gorgeous locales, awesome cars, and thrilling events to get lost in. The momentum for this open-world epic has continued churning with various updates — the latest being a release of some flashy new American muscle cars for players to enjoy.

On the heels of this will come the holiday-themed Winter Wonderland on December 7th. With many compelling reasons and opportunities to score some air and rake in precious skill points, we thought we’d update this list to include more of the best cars for jumps and Danger Signs in Forza Horizon 5.

20 Mosler MT900S

8.2 9.8 7.4 8.1 8.4 4.7 S2 919

Its immensely sleek, lavish design should indicate as to what a speed demon the Mosler can be on the road. This American-made supercar dates back to Forza Motorsport 3, and continues to shine on FH5 on multiple levels. With a 7.0L supercharged V8 engine and 530 bhp (brake horsepower), this car will simply leave all but the fastest of opponents trailing in the dust.

This doesn’t just aid in racing, but it also allows players to clear those Danger Signs more effectively, as the car really hits the ground running. On top of this, its superb handling (9.8) enables drivers to line up their launch angle, making for higher, more controlled leaps. As one might expect, offroading is a little shakier with the Mosler—but it’s definitely a must-pick for Danger Signs in controlled environments.

19 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4

Like many supercars of its ilk, this Lambo can really thrive when it comes to ramps and jumps tailored to streets—though proves less reliable for flying through hilly, offroad locales. Still, this car is an ideal choice as it can sprint to 60 mph in just a few seconds, hitting a sky-high top speed of 232 mph. This comes courtesy of a V12 engine, 700 bhp, and all-wheel-drive.

For these reasons, the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 is well worth the investment, especially for those road warriors.

18 TVR Cerbera Speed 12

This UK-assembled car may invoke a bit of FH4 nostalgia, but it still gets the job done when it comes to FH5‘s variety of events and stunts. The Cerbera can impressively ignite to a top speed of 240 mph, and hits 60 in just over three seconds.

While not really an offroad fiend, the Cerbera is built with solid braking and handling, which makes it much easier to deal with wilder, hilly terrain.

17 Aston Martin Vantage

James Bond would be thrilled to take a ride in this sports car, which makes for a versatile and reliable pick that is great for cross-country. At the same time, the Aston Martin Vantage can be quite good for setting up Danger Sign jumps, thanks to its stellar speed, great handling, and respectable launch statistics.

These cars in Forza Horizon 5 will fetch a pretty penny at the Auction House.

No longer requiring the Car Pass DLC like FH4, this car can now be secured by simply purchasing it at the Autoshow for a relatively budget price. Not bad, considering the high price of admission in earlier Forza games.

16 Ferrari 599XX Evolution

8.0 9.8 7.3 7.9 10 3.8 S2 952

Surpassing the already swift standard 599XX, this speed demon can hit a solid 240 mph without breaking a sweat. Not only this, but its steady handling at high speeds ensures smooth, steady leaps over the treacherous jumps strewn about the rough Mexican locales. These qualities also make this luxury supercar ideal for Speed Trap PR Stunts and Speed Zone runs.

Above-average launching also helps this Ferrari when it comes to flying off ramps and going the distance.

15 Toyota #1T100 Baja Truck

Making its welcome return as a Barn Find, this 90’s classic is truly built to handle the often rugged lands of Mexico with its offroad prowess. Its suspension system is built to absorb the rough rides to and across the various Danger Signs.

While not exactly the quickest car when it comes to jumps, its springy nature more than makes up for this deficit, allowing it to get ample air as it propels off ramps and hills. It also helps that it’s equipped with a more-than-capable launch stat to get it churning quickly.

14 Lamborghini Centenario LP 770-4

8.3 8.7 8.7 8.0 8.9 4.6 S1 884

This hypercar won’t come cheap, as it demands a whopping 2,300,000 CR when buying at the Autoshow. Yet, considering it’s one of the fastest, most potent cars in the game, it’s well worth the investment.

This awesome Lambo is equipped with a 6.5L Naturally-Aspirated V12 engine and boasts 759 bhp. Factor in its solid grip around corners, and its ability to zip to 60 mph in three seconds, and one can see why it’s a great choice for lengthy jumps.

Forza Horizon 5 players know that sometimes the fastest cars can be hard to control — but these ones handle smoothly and reach high speeds.

The Centenario is also laced with a rear wing that deploys at 60 mph (small potatoes for this car), acting as a sort of makeshift glider that allows it to soar. A rare weakness comes in the form of its longer braking distance — though this is usually a non-factor when tackling those long jumps anyway.

13 Ultima Evolution Coupe 1020

The UK-crafted Ultima from 2015 is both a smooth and speedy ride, which will ensure drivers will get wherever they’re going swiftly and in style. This car can really hit the ground running, clocking in at 60 mph from a standstill in just over two seconds.

Its great, speed, handling, and launch — coupled with a lightweight chassis and potent engine — make it optimal for launching through Danger Signs or just looking to get some air. Of course, players will want to stay on the road as much as possible while doing so; but when prowling the streets, the Ultima dominates in most facets.

12 Apollo Intensa Emozione

This 2018 German car is simply top-tier when it comes to eye candy, though it’s also one of the sharpest, best-performing cars in the game. Its aerodynamic nature and mechanical grip make it a good pick when setting up for big jumps on the fly.

Players can count on this vehicle when swiftly veering off course and off the various cliffs beyond Danger Signs. Of course, given its solid handling and braking, it’s also superb when it comes to racing on those smaller, winding streets and tracks. This beast is not cheap, but it’s well worth the investment for street racers.

11 RJ Anderson #37 Polaris RZR-Rockstar Energy Pro 2

With its solid power-to-weight ratio, this car proves efficient and reliable when plowing through just about any offroad region or rocky terrain. Players can expect to string together plenty of skill points when bouncing around in this truck, as it’s ideal for handling many smaller jumps.

Though it’s also a good pick for setting up near a cliff’s edge and plummeting back towards Earth. As was the case with Forza Horizon 4, this truck remains quite versatile and effective for its price, especially when spending much time kicking up some dust and sand while offroading.

10 Ariel Nomad

One of the best value offroading cars of FH5‘s vast lineup, this 2016 buggy from the UK excels in more than just online skirmishes and zipping across the dunes. Its bouncy, aerodynamic build and lightweight will ensure drivers cash in on many air skill points.

Of course, it can also springboard its way through a Danger Sign and get a bit extra hangtime compared to many offroad cars. While its stats are more average across the board, players looking to string together ample skill points would be hard-pressed to find a better deal than the Ariel Nomad.

This solid, well-crafted truck from the US is powered by a 707 bhp twin-screw supercharged V8 and weighs over 4600 lbs, making it a powerhouse that can handle almost any rough terrain in its path.

While it may not get quite the hangtime some of its ilk would, it’s useful for jumps in that it can get loads of momentum as it plows through all in its path. Its offroading skills are superb, and it boasts some decent acceleration for its size and weight.

8 AMG Transport Dynamics M12S Warthog CST

Much like the FPS franchise from which it stems, the landscapes of FH5 are wrought with some rocky and rugged terrain. Unlike Halo, Forza players won’t need to deal with any pesky Covenant—but they do still need to contend with plenty of daunting Danger Signs and bumpy rides. The Warthog is great for that, but will cost players a pretty penny.

With a wealth of new features, Forza Horizon 5’s second expansion leaves the base game in the dust.

This hog can power through just about anything in its path, with its 8.0L twin-turbocharged V8 engine and 720 bhp. Its robust design, thick tires, and solid suspension allow it to handle the turbulent areas of Mexico without sweat. It’s not going to blow drivers’ hair back in terms of speed, but its stellar maneuverability, launch, and ideal chassis for offroading make the hog a beast for jumps.

7 Rimac Concept Two

Rocking 1887 bhp, this potent electric car from Croatia is underappreciated when it comes to speed and power. It has an impressive ability to hit 258 mph thanks to its quad electric motors. Speed, launch, and acceleration are all top-notch statistically, making it a great choice for positioning oneself for extensive leaps.

The 2021 version of this vehicle was tagged the “Nevera,” which fittingly translates to “a sudden, short storm accompanied by lightning” in Croatian.

6 Bugatti Divo

Laced with a solid 1479 bhp and an 8.0: Quad-Turbocharged W16, this French hypercar’s got it where it counts. Its rear wing, smooth mechanics, and ergonomic design that stresses driving dynamics offer some smooth, even-keeled jumps.

At the same time, this beast can easily churn at a speed that approaches 250 mph, setting the stage for some wild, extensive rides in the sky. Assuming players take the time and effort to save up, they can score this gem at the Autoshow for 3,000,000 CR.

5 Lamborghini Sesto Elemento

With stellar statistics and mechanics across the board, few cars are more prominent when it comes to all-around capabilities. This is especially the case when it comes to the exclusive Forza Edition, of which the Sesto can be scored via Wheelspin or Super Wheelspin prize. For players that aren’t quite so lucky, the default model can still be bought at the Autoshow for a pretty penny.

While its top speed is fairly lukewarm for a supercar bearing the Lambo moniker, its abilities elsewhere more than make up for it. This includes an ergonomic build and lightweight that allow the Sesto to glide through the air, and impressive accelerationthat revs up to100 mphin just5 seconds.

As one might expect, this trait — coupled with smooth handling and sharp turning — makes it ideal for Street Races as well.

4 Porsche Taycan Turbo S

This German sports car runs on a state-of-the-art battery-electric and drivetrain with a permanent-magnet synchronous motor laced to each axle. Also a terrific choice for drag races, the Taycan boasts perfect statistics in speed and launch, as well as near-perfect acceleration. This allows the lightning-quick electric car to hit impressive speeds in the blink of an eye, making it a breeze to set up for Danger Signs.

Forza Horizon 5 recently received an expansion where new cars were added to the game, giving players more choices.

This car can be scored by way of the Welcome Pack, and shows up as a Wheelspin prize and “Discovery Connoisseur” accolade.

A fan-favorite from Forza Horizon 4, this classic Ford makes its return emphatically. It helps that it’s easier to secure this time around, with a respectable asking price of 500,000 CR at the Autoshow.

A potent stock engine (2.1L Turbocharged l4 with 750 bhp), allows this versatile car to hit 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds and goes from 0 to 100 in just under 5. Its tremendous grip abilities and even-keeled driving make it a great choice for offroad racing and dirt roads. This quality — and top-notchacceleration — are ideal for Danger Signs, which are typically off the beaten paths of Mexico.

2 Koenigsegg Jesko

This Swedish manufacturer has had no shortage of great cars throughout the Forza franchise, and this top-of-the-line hypercar may be the best of the best.

Superbhandling and braking make it great for scoring loads of skill points, though the Jesko is also great with Danger Signs and jumps given its warp speeds that break the 300 mph barrier. This comes at the hands of an impressive 5.0L Twin-Turbocharged V8 with 1280 bhp.

Its price may seem steep at 2,800,000 CR via the Autoshow, but players get ample bang for their virtual bucks.

1 BMW X5 M Forza Edition

Requires VIP Membership Pack

Along with the Jesko, this German SUV is largely recognized as the go-to when it comes to leaping across the cliffs, hills, and ramps of Mexico. Not only does it have a unique rear wing to help it glide through the air, but the X5 offers an overall smooth, fairly speedy ride for an affordable 100,000 CR.

While the default model is capable enough, the pre-tuned Forza Edition (500,000 CR) is well worth the investment, with its unique body kit, and Sr 998 Performance Index that gives it nearly flawless statistics all-around. Keep in mind, this potent model requires the VIP Membership pack. Danger Sign or no, the X5 M FE is currently one of the best cars in the game, pound for pound.
