As usual, all points players earn across all four seasons of the Series 8 can be used to unlock cars that might or might not be Exclusive (not available in the Autoshow). Although these cars will only be available for a limited time, players who miss them will have another chance to buy them since they will most likely return for future Festival Playlists.

Forza Horizon 5 Series 8 has two cars that can be unlocked with points earned during Festival Playlists: 2018 Mercedes-AMG E 63 S (Hard-to-Find car - 80 points) and 1939 Auto Union Type D (Autoshow value 15 million credits - 160 points).

The first season of Series 8 debuts on May 26 and closes on June 2. During the Summer – Wet Season, players can earn up to 52 points, which can be used to earn one or both of these cars: 1987 Porsche 959 (Autoshow value 2 million credits - 20 points) and 2012 Porsche GT3 RS 4.0 (Seasonal Exclusive - 40 points).
