Get free legacy cars in Forza Horizon 5

The loyalty awards aren't exceptional but they're nice to have especially if you're long-time fan of the series.

Just a few days before Forza Horizon 5 arrives for everybody - the game is already available in early access for select players - Microsoft just announced that it's going to reward those who've already played through previous Forza Horizon and Forza Motorsport titles. Series veterans will receive the cover car for the past Forza game that they've played, which will be automatically added to their garage after completing their first drive.

Keep in mind that these loyalty reward cars aren't exclusive by any means. You can still get your hands on them by buying them directly from Autoshow. However, these cover cars are no slouch and don't come cheap. You'll need a boatload of money if you want to get your hands on any of them let alone all. Not to mention, your Garage could benefit a lot from having these cars available right from the get-go, as you go on exploring Forza Horizon 5's massive map.
