How To Sell Cars In Forza Horizon 5
Nearly a decade after the first Forza Horizon was released in 2012, the racing game spin-off of Forza has spawned multiple sequels for the XBOX, Steam and Windows platforms. The latest iteration in the series, Forza Horizon 5 came out in November 2021.
Forza Horizon 5 allows the player to race in an open-world fictional representation of Mexico. As you soak in the sights and culture that the country has to offer, you’ll want to have the fastest and most beautiful cars to race within the game itself.
In our latest blog, we’ll guide you through how you can sell any unwanted cars in Forza Horizon 5 that’ll help you save for that dream McLaren or Ferrari.
What’s the currency for buying and selling vehicles in Forza Horizon 5?
When you play Forza Horizon 5, the currency to buy or sell vehicles in the game comes in the form of credits. Credits can be earned in the game by way of competing in races and events.
That can help build up a sizeable amount of credits to enable you to make big upgrades or buy faster, more expensive cars. Most Forza Horizon 5 players decide to sell cars they’ve not driven in the game, which can help give you a quick credit boost when it comes to making that next purchase or upgrade.
The Auction House
The easiest way to sell cars in Forza Horizon 5 is through the auction house. This feature in the game must be unlocked before you can auction your cars to other players from all over the world.
Once you’ve completed the tutorials in the game, you can start selling your cars through the auction house with this process:
- Open up the main menu and select buy and sell vehicles (This can be located under the cars tab in the game)
- Once you’ve selected that mode, you can access the auction house
- Inside the auction house, you have the option to sell vehicles in your garage
- Select the car or vehicle you want to sell
- After you’ve selected the car you want to sell, you can set the starting price, buyout price and auction length.
It’s as simple as that. If you are selling the cars in your garage, you want to make sure you don’t price out buyers who want to buy your car. When you start the auction, make sure the price you list your car for is realistic so that any impatient gamers who want that car can bid for it from the get-go.
How do you obtain cars in Forza Horizon 5?
Using the auction house to sell your cars is not the only way you can build your garage in Forza Horizon 5. There are other ways that you can obtain new cars in the game that do not require selling off the car collection you’ve worked so hard for.

We hope some of the tips we’ve given you can help with making upgrades or adding new cars to your garage in Forza Horizon 5. By selling these cars, it’ll move you one step closer to landing a highly expensive supercar, such as the McLaren P1 or Bugatti Chiron.
