Released on the 15th August 2023, the Italian Exotics Car Pack adds seven new cars to Forza Horizon 5. Fantastic!

In particular, the Lamborghini Essenza SCV12, which we think is up there with the best-sounding cars in the game.

But, what exactly is included, how much does it cost and do you own it already without knowing it? Let’s dive in.

Which cars are included in the Italian Exotics Car Pack DLC for Forza Horizon 5?

  • 2023 Lamborghini Huracán Tecnica (S1 850)
  • 2022 Ferrari 296 GTB (S1 892)
  • 2020 Ferrari Roma (S1 830)
  • 2020 Lamborghini Essenza SCV12 (S2 967)
  • 2020 Lamborghini SC20 (S1 884)
  • 2019 Italdesign DaVinci Concept (S1 809)
  • 2018 Lamborghini #63 Squadra Corse Huracán Super Trofeo Evo (S1 850)

Among these seven new models, that’s four Lamborghini’s, two Ferrari’s and an Italdesign.

The Ferraris are completely new to Forza, with the Roma being its latest entry-level model and the 296 GTB providing a miniaturised SF90 plug-in hybrid mid-engine punch.

The Lamborghinis are a little more complex, in as much as the Huracán Tecnica is a mildly facelifted version of the Huracán Evo, which in turn was an updated Huracán LP 610-4, both of which are already part of the roster.

The racing version of said Huracán, the 2018 Squadra Corse is new to Horizon 5, but has previously been DLC for Horizon 3 and the same rendering has been used in Forza Motorsport 6 and 7.

Both the SC20 and SCV12 are pumped-up versions of the Aventador but are distinct from the existing supercar. The former is without a roof in a barchetta style, while the former is a track-only variant. Finally, the Italdesign is an electric saloon.
