Forza Horizon 5 has a new feature that allows players to gift other players with cars. See how to send and receive gifts in the racing game.

There are over 700 cars that players can collect in the Forza Horizon 5 , and sometimes not all of them are desirable. Players can acquire new cars by purchasing them at the Auto Show, Auction House or spinning wheels. 



With many cars on offer, players are required to unlock vehicles they already own or will never use in races. Fortunately, players can gift cars in Forza Horizon 5 to other players as a nice gesture.

Buying rare cars Forza Horizon 5 it can be frustrating as it takes a lot of time and effort. Players are often disappointed when Wheelspin doesn't produce a desirable car. Offering cars in Forza Horizon 5 is a new feature that was not present in previous titles. 

However, PlayGround Games now includes a mechanic that allows players to get rid of their unwanted cars in a charitable way.

Although having the ability to gift any car in the Forza Horizon 5  was a much-needed mechanic, Playground Games made sure players couldn't exploit the new feature. It is important to note that the game does not allow sending gifts to friends. 

O Forza Horizon 5 does not allow specific people to receive gifts as this may interfere with the overall game experience.

Players can gift cars in two ways in the Forza Horizon 5 . The first method involves going to “My Horizon” in the menu and selecting the “Gift Drop” option. 


Alternatively, players can head to a Barn Find location and press the interact button to initiate a gift from that location. In the gift menu, players will have to choose between five different options:


  • The gift option "Anyone" will send the car to a random player. 
  • The “New Players” option will offer the car to a new player who has launched the game for the first time.
  • The "Returning Players" option will gift random players who return to the game. 
  • The "New Hall of Fame Members" option will send the car to a player who was recently added to the Hall of Fame. 
  • Finally, the “Community Contributors” option will send the cars to players who add music, customizations, races, and other content to the game. 

How to Receive Gifts in Forza Horizon 5

To receive gifts, players will receive a message notification as soon as they start the game and can be requested in the Message Center. 

For Barn Find gifts, players must head to that specific location to claim the gift. To make the whole process less frustrating, players need to have the Buenas Vistas house unlocked so they can quickly travel to locations in Forza Horizon 5



When a Barn Find Gift is claimed, the sender also receives a notification that another player has purchased the gift.

Forza Horizon 5 is available for PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
