Speed isn’t the only important factor in Forza Horizon 5 but it does play a big part in a number of race types. What is the fastest car in the game though? By all accounts, it’s the 2020 Koenigsegg Jesko which can reach an absurd 308 mph (495 km/h) on its own. Some tuning setups have even been able to push it to 328 mph or 529 km/h. It can be earned via the AutoShow for 2.8 million Credits, via WheelSpin or by completing an Accolade “Cinema Irrealiste.”
To earn the Accolade, you need to play through all 11 chapters for V10 and get 3 stars. This is unlocked via the Horizon Baja Outpost and consists of completing stunts. Once that’s done, the Koenigsegg Jesko is yours. While its Acceleration is decent (6.9) and Offroad is fairly poor (4.4), it’s rated 10 for Speed and Acceleration along with a 9 for Braking. If you’re looking to be unbeatable in a Street Race, then it will work wonders.
Of course, there are a bunch of other options to try out as well like the 2019 McLaren Speedtail (2.25 million Credits), the 2011 Bugatti Veyron Super Sport (2.2 million Credits) or the Rimac Concept Two (2 million Credits). For some more budget-friendly options, the 1965 Ford Hoonicorn Mustang (500,000 Credits), 2014 Porsche 918 Spyder (850,000 Credits), 2012 Hennessey Venom GT (1.2 million Credits) and 2020 Porsche Taycan Turbo S (185,000 Credits) are well worth picking up.
