Forza Horizon 5 features a wide variety of German cars that are all great for certain types of activities, racing categories, and classes. But how does one decide which cars are worth their time? If you are also wondering the same thing, then you’ve come to the right guide. We’ll be ranking the 8 best German cars currently available in FH5.

We’ve tried to keep the list as flexible as possible and included German cars that are the best in their respective category. Let’s get into it without further ado!


BMW X5 M FE – Mainly For Drag Racing


Price: 200,000CR ~ // Auction House Buy out Estimate
Class: S2
Tune Code: 103 654 236 (Drag Tune)
1/4 Mile In: 12.43s ~

BMW X5 M FE is a German multi-purpose vehicle you can buy in Forza Horizon 5 and tune to suit your circuit, street, dirt, and even drag racing needs.

The X5 can only be acquired through the Auction House and will cost anywhere between 180-200k CR (depending on the market rates at that time).

We’ve previously featured this car in our list of the fastest drag racing cars in Forza Horizon 5. It’s a pleasure to drive both on roads and in the muck.


Mercedes-Benz AMG CLK GTR – Best in S2 Class

Mercedes-Benz AMG CLK GTR - Forza Horizon 5 Best German Cars Feature

Price: 2,000,000CR
Tune Code: 110 308 116 (Dirt/Rally/Cross Country – Fastest S2 dirt car on most tracks)
Class: S2

The Mercedes-Benz AMG CLK GTR was previously featured in our ranked list of the best S2-Class cars in Forza Horizon 5. This classic German supercar turns out to be the best overall Off-road car in FH5.

You can use it for dirt, rallies, cross country, and jungle racing. We’ve provided a tuning code that makes it an even better car for off-roading in FH5.

It’s good for catching up to opponents in straights and even handles turns well. You’ll feel confident driving this beast on any dirt track. This beast of a car is readily available through the FH5 Auto Showroom for 2 million credits.


Porsche GT3 RS – Sounds Amazing

Porsche GT3 RS - Forza Horizon 5 Best German Cars Feature

Price: 255,000CR
Class: S1
Upgrades for Best Sound: Race Exhaust

Another personal favorite German car of mine, The Porsche GT3 RS, comes equipped with a Flat6 4.0L engine tuned so that flooring the car gives you this distinct and slightly gnarly on-the-tail-end sound.

It’s a Porsche. What else can I tell you about its sound? The GT3 sounds so good that I only used this car while hunting for Fast Travel Boards across Mexico. It’s just uplifting every time you floor it on the highway.

Install the Race Exhaust upgrade if you want the engine noise to be even more pronounced and louder in cockpit mode.


Audi TT RS Coupe 2010 – Best in A Class

Audi TT RS Coupe 2010 - Forza Horizon 5 Best German Cars Feature

Price: 66,000CR
Tune Code: 673 486 914 (Street Focused / Anti-Lag)

Looking for a cheap German car that ticks all the racing boxes? You might be able to snag this Audi TT RS Coupe for cheaper from the Auction House and tune it as an effective A-Class Street racing car. Weighing only 3,000 pounds and having a 2.5L engine generating 431 horsepower, this Audi can do well on stretches.

Try handling it at high speeds, and you’ll surely be surprised. This is the best A-Class car for road racing in Forza Horizon 5.


Mercedes-Benz AMG One – A Really Fast Car

Mercedes-Benz AMG One

Price: 2,700,000CR
Tune Code: 453 900 926 (Top Speed Tune)
Top Speed: 272 MPH ~ (Highway Mode) // 250 MPH (Track Mode)
Class: S2

Mercedes-Benz AMG One is the poster car of Forza Horizon 5. It comfortably reaches speeds of up to 272MPH // 250MPH in its Highway // Track mode, respectively.

The car almost doesn’t turn when it’s going fast in Highway mode, which reminded us of an unguided rocket. You point, shoot, and pray that it doesn’t hit anything else on its way to the target.

The Track mode, however, is the complete opposite. You can send the car into corners, be confident in stretches, and brake well, too, all at the top speeds of about 250MPH ( which is not bad by any means)

Porsche 911 GT2 RS – Handles like a Dream

Porsche 911 GT2 RS - Forza Horizon 5 Best German Cars Feature

Price: 315,000CR
Class: S1
Tune Code: 151 838 805 (Handling Focused)

Next on the list of the best German cars in FH5 is The Porsche 911 GT2 RS. It is a worthy pick for a handling-focused German supercar. The 3.8L Twin-Turbo F6 sounds amazing, and the car handles and drifts very well.

Here’s a guide covering the 8 Best Sounding Cars in Forza Horizon 5

We drove it around the dense cityscape of Mexico, and it never lost grip on the brick roads. You can take the GT2 out for Cross-Country racing as well. It’s cheaper than most other cars that offer decent speeds and handling stats, making it an appealing package.


Audi RS e-tron GT 2021 – The Electric Option

Audi RS e-tron GT 2021

Top Speed: 271mph~
Price: 7,816,000 CR~ (Auction House)
Class: A

The Audi RS e-tron GT 2021 is our favorite German all-electric car that can reach top speeds of 271mph and generates a mighty 637bhp.

This Audi was available during the Series 12 playlist and can now only be bought via the Auction House for a hefty price. Who knows, the price might drop in the coming days.

We highly suggest snagging the e-Tron whenever you can, as it’ll be a fine addition to your fleet of German cars in Forza Horizon 5.

These were some of the best German cars we drove around Mexico in Forza Horizon 5. If you found this guide to be useful, check out our other Forza Horizon 5 coverage and keep your eyes peeled for more of the same!
