In Forza Horizon 5, players will be greeted by a colossal amount of content in which to partake, much of which revolves around exploring the colorful open world. However, one of the biggest features that excite players when they enter a Forza Horizon game is the inclusion of Barn Finds. Much like their real-world counterparts, Barn Finds involve finding classic gems abandoned by time, and restoring them to their previous glory. In Forza Horizon 5, players will have over 10 Barn Finds to discover and restore.

These Barn Finds can be tricky to, well, find, especially since many of them have specific unlock requirements or only appear at certain times. Here's everything you need to know about Barn Finds in Forza Horizon 5.

Forza Horizon 5 is an expansive open-world racing game from Playground Games and Xbox Game Studios, and represents the latest entry in the popular franchise. With their latest title, Playground is really aiming to knock it out of the park with more options and content than ever before. Forza Horizon 5 isn't quite like other racing games, and grants players unprecedented levels of freedom and choice.

Where Forza Horizon titles truly stand above the rest is their worlds, and the Forza Horizon 5 map is no different. This world, set in Mexico, changes and evolves over time, and is by far the largest map ever featured in a Forza Horizon title. There's so much to explore, and every inch may have something new for you to discover (including Barn Finds!).

Forza Horizon 5 releases on Nov. 9, 2021, for Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PC, Xbox Game Pass, and Xbox Cloud Gaming.

If you want to gain early access to FH5, or you're just really excited, Forza Horizon 5 is also now available to preorder. If Forza Horizon 5 delivers on even half of its ambitious promises, it'll still likely be one of the best Xbox racing games you can play.

What are Barn Finds in Forza Horizon 5?

In the real world, "barn find" refers to finding an old classic vehicle and restoring it. In Forza Horizon 5, the answer is pretty similar, as Barn Finds are legendary classics hidden throughout the world. These cars need to be tracked down and recovered from the dilapidated homes they're abandoned in, and then restored to their former glory. By seeking out Barn Finds, FH5 players can augment their collection with hidden entries on the Forza Horizon 5 car list, providing a lot of incentive to explore wherever you go.

Forza Horizon 5's Barn Finds behave a little differently than in previous Forza Horizon games. Just like before, Barn Finds can be "revealed" by exploring the map and at different times or seasons. However, some Barn Finds in Forza Horizon 5 can only be discovered by doing specific things, by completing Horizon Stories, and more. This time around, Barn Finds are more contextual and more varied than ever before.

Of course, this also means it can be difficult to know how to obtain every Barn Find, especially if you're aiming to fill out your car collection. Fortunately, we're keeping track of everything you need to know about discovering every Barn Find in FH5, and what cars you can expect to earn from them.

We know there are at least 10 Barn Finds in FH5, according to Playground Games, but the Forza Horizon 5 Achievements list reveals that there may be a total of 14 Barn Finds. We'll continue to update this guide as we discover every Barn Find.

There may be up to 14 Barn Finds in Forza Horizon 5, and every single one may have different requirements for revealing it, challenges to finding it, and cars to restore at the end of it. We'll continually update this guide until we've discovered every Barn Find and how to unlock them, starting with the first Barn Find most players will be exposed to in Forza Horizon 5.

Here's every Barn Find and how to discover them in Forza Horizon 5.

1963 Volkswagen Beetle "Vocho"

One of the first Barn Finds that appears in Forza Horizon 5 is one that gifts players with the 1963 Volkswagen Beetle, commonly referred to as the "Vocho" in Mexico. This is a legendary and beloved automobile in Mexican car culture, and this particular bug has an even more sentimental story behind it. That's because the first Barn Find in Forza Horizon 5 requires players to play through the "Vocho" Horizon Story, one of the many side missions that populates the FH5 map.

Vocho is offered as one of two Horizon Story choices near the beginning of the game. Don't worry, if you happen to choose the other Story first, you'll be able to play Vocho later on. The first chapter of this Story has you and Alejandra, the mechanic that will help you upgrade and restore your cars in FH5, travel outside of Mulegé to try to track down a long-lost Volkswagen Beetle that once belonged to a close family member of Alejandra. The following chapters likely continue the tale of restoring the Vocho, but we don't know quite yet.

Above, you can see exactly where the 1963 Volkswagen Beetle "Vocho" Barn Find is located, but you probably won't need this map. As part of the Horizon Story, you're led straight to the barn under Alejandra's direction. While it may be strange for some players to unlock a Barn Find through a story-focused side mission, it's certainly a bit easier than exploring aimlessly through a vague circular area on the map.

We'll update this as we learn more about how to restore the Vocho fully, and if playing through the different chapters in the "Vocho" Horizon Story is necessary to do so.
