The iconic racing title, Forza Horizon 5, is all set to feature its latest crossover with the upcoming Barbie movie. Although Forza’s makers didn’t officially announce this collab, fans discovered it after spotting Barbie-themed cars in the game.

Forza 5 boasts a record of exciting crossovers in the past, but nobody expected its next one to be a Barbie collaboration. Some of the world’s biggest franchises, such as Halo, Banjo-size, Back to the Future, Halo, and Hot Wheels, have been a part of Forza 5’s past crossovers. Moreover, this Barbie collaboration comes as a promotion strategy for the upcoming fantasy comedy movie Barbie. Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling’s PG-13 film is ready to hit the silver screen on July 21st, 2023.

Though the new vehicles are present in Forza 5’s Horizon Promo menu, players still can’t access or drive them. Therefore, fans still do not know whether a purchase is required or whether they are free to add to their car collection. Many of you must be wondering which cars exactly this crossover offers us, so let’s find that out now.

Which Barbie cars are Forza Horizon 5 getting?

Earlier today, a Twitter user @IdleSloth84_ shared about the 2 Barbie cars arriving in the title along with their images. Speaking of the vehicles, one belongs to the iconic Chevrolet Corvette EV while the other one is GMC’s Hummer EV:

  • 1956 ‘Barbie Movie’ Corvette EV
  • 2022 ‘Barbie Movie’ Hummer EV Pickup

Currently, there’s no official information from the developers of Playground Games. Hence, we still don’t know when these cars will be accessible.

Forza Horizon 5 is also likely to introduce some promotional events. These events could either offer the two vehicles as a gift to the players or there could be a set of missions to unlock them.

These vehicles appear to be dashing, with the Corvette being a classy vintage car, whereas the muscular Hummer EV is totally juiced up for long off-road drives. Both cars will indeed give the players Barbie vibes, particularly the Corvette EV. Furthermore, let’s not forget that we’ll also get to watch two of these beauties in the movie as well.
