Players can locate Barn Finds throughout the map to find rare and vintage cars hidden within. By picking Barn Find rumours, players will be given vague locations as to where these barns may be located.
We break down everything players need to know about Barn Finds, how to unlock them and the locations of the barns in Forza Horizon 5.
Forza Horizon 5: What are Barn Finds?
Barn Find is a unique feature in which players embark on a treasure hunt for rare and vintage cars hidden inside barns. These barns are scattered across the Horizon Mexico map, which can be located through exploration.
In Forza Horizon 5, three Barn Find locations are locked behind Expedition objectives, which are available to players in the beginning portion of the game. The remaining barns can then be found by driving around the map or stumbled on while completing Drift Zones, Festival Playlist challenges and more.
Forza Horizon 5: How to unlock Barn Finds?
For the Barn Finds feature to be unlocked in Forza Horizon 5, players will need to complete a portion of the game for Barn Find rumours to surface on the map. Once players have acquired a rumour, the Barn Find will become available for players to engage with.
If players are having difficulty locating a barn, the drone feature can be utilised to make the search less tedious. Additionally, if you’re not cut out for exploring the vast map of Mexico, players have the option to purchase the Treasure Map DLC from the Microsoft/Xbox Store. Installing the DLC will have their exact locations marked, but players will be granted direct access to these barns.
Forza Horizon 5: Barn Find locations
14 rare cars can be discovered across the Horizon map awaiting restoration. Three of these Barn Finds, however, are locked behind corresponding Expedition objectives, which will need to be completed before unlocking the cars.
While the best way to unlock these cars is through exploration, we have taken the time to mark each location to find them in no time.
1967 Ford Racing Escort RS1600 MK1
Attached to the Baja Expedition, players will need to complete the hot spring lake sample to unlock this barn’s location. The location is in the La Gran Caldera area, northwest on the map.
Look at the location’s map label, and just above the first ‘L’ is where the barn can be found. Search for a dirt track following a wide hairpin and travel along the track to find the barn.
1970 GMC Jimmy
As part of the Apex Expedition, players will need to complete the “Reach the top of the central ruin objective” for the barn’s location to be unlocked. Locate a river in the Cascadas De Agua Azul area where a dirt track near the river can be spotted. Travel along the track to find the barn southeast from the Atlantes De Tula ruins.
1991 Jaguar XJR-15 Sport
The Jaguar barn location can be unlocked by completing the “Find the lost notes” objective from the Wilds Expedition. Players will then head southwest of the map to the Aeródromo En La Selva. Locate the circuit’s dirt track on the south side of the airfield, where a barn can be found taking one of the roads into a field of trees.
1962 Ferrari 250 GTO
One of the most expensive cars in-game, this car will be a treat to players who have snuffed it out from its barn location. Near the east coast of the map along the Los Jardines road, search for a dirt track at a roundabout that connects two roads at this point. Once the dirt track is found, drive up the track to find the barn containing the Ferrari 250 GTO.
1968 Renault 4L Export
Head to the northwest section of the Horizon Mexico map, near the Baja Circuit. Here, travel in a northeast direction towards the border of the map. The barn is located in this region, but if travelling in the opposite direction, here’s how to find the barn.
On the northernmost road, travelling westbound in the area, players will encounter a junction in which they take the left turn. Travelling along the road, there will be a dirt track just before a right turn. Take the dirt track and follow the path leading to the barn.
1993 Toyota T100 #1 Baja Truck
The Toyota barn location will take a little more investigative skills than other barn locations. Locate the southwest section of the Horizon Mexico map where players will need to find three specific landmarks – De Otro Mundo, De Ópalo De Fuego and Palacio Azul Del Océano.
Once these landmarks have been located, head in the direction below the De Otro Mundo landmark to discover a crop circle. Players will need to go around this crop circle, passing the 4 o'clock position to spot the barn located in the distance.
1989 Ferrari F40 Competizione
In Tulim, travel to the southeast corner to find a swamp nearby and a dirt track leading into the swamp. Travel down the track where the next barn can be located with a Ferrari F40 hiding inside. The barn is located north of Patano De La Selva and near the coast of Riviera Maya.
1953 Chevrolet Corvette
In the Tierra Próspera area, look for the main highway that runs through the area. South of the highway, locate a dirt track that crosses over a river and keep to the track beyond the river to find the barn.
1999 Dodge Viper GTS ACR
Possibly the most entertaining way to find a barn location, players will open their map and locate the Gran Pantano area. Mark on the map a spot on the second ‘A’ in the Patano map label and drive to the location. The barn is located north of the Ek’ Balam ruins on the southeast corner of the map.
1973 BMW 2002 Turbo
The BMW barn is situated northwest of Guanajuato. On the north edge of the map in this area, players will go off-road to locate a barn atop a hill. The BMW awaits players inside of this barn.
1973 Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS
To locate this car’s corresponding bar, players will need to drive along the winding mountain pass road located to the east of the Caldera. Look out for the second hairpin section which you’ll need to pass as you’re travelling in a northern direction.
A dirt track can be located on the left side after passing the second hairpin. Travel down this dirt track where a barn can be found along this path.
1968 Dodge Dart Hemi Super Stock
Travel to Teotihuacan located on the southernmost side of the map. Search for a horizontal road in the area where you can find a dirt track south of Teotihuacan. The easiest way to mark the location is that the barn is slightly below the ‘can’ of the Teotihuacan map label.
1956 Ford F-100
South of Tierra Próspera, players can spot an open field that is surrounded by a road loop. Once the field is located, drive into the field where the barn can be found.
1968 Ford Mustang GT 2+2 Fastback
This barn is located northeast of Guanajuato by taking the east road out of the main city. Players will then turn left into a road heading north before facing two turns. Following the two turns, there will be a dirt track that will lead players to the Mustang barn.
Once all the cars have been located, the restoration process can begin. Some cars will take longer to be completely restored, but once it’s done, players can find the cars in the Garage tab in the main menu.
