Forza Horizon 5 will have about 528 cars in the game, including the Welcome Pack and Forza Edition cars. KOENIGSEGG – Jesko has shown the best speed performance out of all the pre-load footages accessible to the public so far. Don Joewon Song, a youtuber, conducted these tests, in which a fully tuned Jesko reached top speeds of 305-307 mph (or 490-494 kmh). It was possible to reach top speeds of 308 mph after applying the off-road settings to the car. However, the car became unstable and difficult to control as a result of the off-road setting.
Comparing speeds with other cars:
Various other tests conducted with the cars available in the pre-load, but none of them were able to attain top speeds surpassing 290 mph. The Lamborghini – Sesto Elemento Forza Edition is said to possibly attain top speeds up to 284 mph. Even the most expensive hyper-car in the game – MCLAREN F1 GT (15 mil credits) – could only reach speeds up to 288 mph (despite tests with different upgrades) .
Cars in Forza Horizon 5 that could perform better potentially:
Until The Series 1 update is officially released, (on November 11th, 2021) some specific cars cannot be tested. The majority of these are “hard-to-find” cars which can only be obtained through the Series and Seasonal challenges. Some of the “Hard-to-Find-Cars” yet to be tested include the Koenigsegg CCGT, Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, and Senna McLaren. These cars could possibly turn out to be faster hypercars than the Jesko, but we cannot know for sure until Series 1 is officially released.
As of right now, the Jesko holds the title as the fastest car in Forza Horizon 5. Despite its ability to reach such high speeds, it is a car that performs primarily well only in straight drag races. The car performs poorly in races as compared to other cars in the same class. Therefore, players should consider this aspect before using or purchasing this car.
