It's that time again when there are new events and rewards in Forza Horizon 5. This week, everyone gets the chance to get behind the wheel of an incredible V8 muscle machine which is none other than the 1970 AMC Rebel “The Machine.” Its red, white, and blue paint scheme is sure to make a statement as much as the 340-horsepower V8 engine. The Rebel could run mid-14s in the quarter mile with the unique ram-air hood scoop and hood-mounted tachometer helping with the performance-minded attitude.

To put this muscled beauty in their garage, players need to earn 20 PTS on the Festival Playlist this week.

Last Chance

While getting the chance to earn a new muscle car is exciting, don't forget that there's still time to get the following until January 5:

  • 80 PTS: 2022 Extreme E #22 JBXE
  • 160 PTS: 2014 Ferrari California T

Spend Those Points

For players who have a lot of Forzathon Points, the best way to spend them is at the Forzathon Shop. Be sure to take a closer look at these:
