Here are the best rally, dirt, drag, street race, offroad, drifting cars in Forza Horizon 5.

We’ve compiled a list of the best FH5 cars in each class, the overall best cars list as suggested by the legend Don Joewon Song. But here, we will take a look at the best cars in Forza Horizon 5 for each race type so that you can ace different races and show off your driving skills. Since every race type has a different terrain/requirement related to turns, offroad stat and speed, this list should help you get started with which cars you need to focus on.
