Look out for Forza Horizon 5 Barn Finds to unlock a variety of classic cars for to add to your garage, from supercars to rally cars.

There are 14 Barn Find cars in Forza Horizon 5, including a 1953 Chevrolet Corvette, a 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS, and a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO. Here’s how and where to find all 14 of the Forza Horizon 5 Barn Finds in Mexico. (And, if you're looking for Forza Horizon 4 Barn Finds, we can help you there as well.)

How to find Forza Horizon 5 Barn Finds cars and restore them

To find all the Forza Horizon 5 Barn Finds, you unfortunately can’t just seek all of them out right from the very start of the game. You need to first get a rumor from one of the Horizon Festival’s many representatives, like Alex or Alejandra. Most of these rumors appear to be tied to your progression through the Forza Horizon 5 Horizon Adventure campaign, but some can be unlocked by other means, such as buying the La Cabaña property in the northwest corner of the map which rewards you with a Barn Find rumor. We managed to get all 14 Barn Finds just before we completed the Horizon Adventure. Once you do have a rumor, check your map for the large purple circle with a barn icon in it. The barn is somewhere within this purple circle, so you need to head over to the correct part of the map.

From here, you need to search the area marked on your map for the barn itself. You’re looking for a white building with yellow doors at the front. Once you’ve found one, drive up to it and you’ll initiate a cutscene where your character and a Horizon rep will open the barn to reveal a rusted classic car in dire need of restoration. You’ll still be able to see the barn’s location on your map even after you collect the car so you know exactly which car you got from which barn. You can also use empty barns to send and receive gift cars to and from other players!

After you’ve recovered the car, it’ll go into your collection but will be unusable until it has been repaired. This takes time but can be fast-tracked by paying in-game Credits (CR) to instantly repair the car. The time it takes to restore a car is tied to the CR value of the repairs needed, with the cost of repairs decreasing over time and acting as a sort of timer.

Some cars, like the GMC Jimmy, take less than an hour to restore with initial repair costs of less than 100,000 CR, but the Ferrari 250 GTO will take many hours to restore and costs over 30 million CR to restore. You’ll get an in-game notification when the car is fully repaired, allowing you to collect and use it. To collect a repaired Barn Find car, you need to visit one of your houses and access the Barn Finds page under the ‘Garage’ tab. Any restored cars will say they are ready to collect on their icon.

We’ve got the locations of all 14 of the Forza Horizon 5 Barn Finds below, but here’s a couple of tips for finding the barns if you don’t want all the help. Firstly, you can use Drone Mode under the ‘Creative Hub’ tab of the pause menu to pilot a drone and scout the purple rumor area to find the barn, rather than having to drive around every inch of the area in a car. Also, the barns generally have a dirt track that leads up to them from a main road. These tracks are unmarked on the map, but you should be able to find them easily by using the drone and flying down any roads within the rumor area. Finally, you should also declutter the map by changing the map filters to show only Barn Finds and Landmarks.

Here are the locations for all 14 of the Forza Horizon 5 Barn Finds across Mexico and the cars contained within. In the map images below, the player icon is positioned at the start of the dirt track that leads to the barn, so use those for easy access to the barns. The cars are also listed in the order we unlocked them, although you might unlock them in a slightly different order.

Ford Racing Escort 1967

You can find the Ford Racing Escort Barn Find up towards the peak of the volcano. On the map, look for the ‘La Gran Caldera’ label which is in the northwest section of Mexico. The barn is just above the L in ‘La’. Take the dirt track that comes off the wide hairpin turn on the dirt road to get to the barn easily.

The Jimmy Barn Find is within the river area of Cascadas De Agua Azul, so you should definitely have an off-road car for this. There’s a dirt road that runs from the nearby Atlantes De Tula ruins down into the Cascadas river area. You’ll find a dirt track along this dirt road that leads to the barn.

Once you’re there, head to the south side of the airfield and drive along the circuit’s dirt roads. You’ll find the barn just off one of these roads amongst lots of trees. The barn also covers the ‘mo’ of the Aeródromo map label.

To find the Porsche 911 barn, you need to start heading along the winding mountain road on the east side of the Caldera. Drive up the road until you pass the second hairpin turn section. You along this section of road, which should have you driving northwards, you’ll eventually find a dirt track on the left side. This is quite a long track but keep following it and you’ll eventually get to the barn.

The Ford Mustang Barn Find is east-northeast of Guanajuato. Taking the east road out of the city, you then need to turn left onto a road that heads north. This road then curves right to face east and then curves left to face north again. There’s a dirt track leading to the barn on the road section after the two turns.

The 250 GTO is an incredibly expensive car, so this is definitely one to look out for. The barn is located very close to the east coast of Mexico near the Los Jardines road marked on the map. Look for the dirt road that links two regular roads that both eventually meet at a roundabout to find the track leading to the barn. It’s also roughly between Playa Azul and Valle De Las Ranas.

For the Renault Export Barn Find, you need to look in the northwest section of the Mexico map. The barn is northeast of the Baja Circuit and very close to the northern border of the map. If you’re driving westbound along the northernmost road, you’ll eventually reach a junction where you can turn left and head roughly south. Take this road and just before it turns right, look out for the dirt path and follow it to the barn.
