How to complete the Forza Horizon 5 Hot and Sandy Treasure Hunt

Your guide to this week’s Forza Horizon 5 Series 10 Spring Festival Playlist, plus where to find the Hot and Sandy treasure chest.

The final Forza Horizon 5 season within the Extreme E festival is here!

The Spring Hot Season provides the final chance to scoop up those last liveried cars for your collection.

Both the #125 Abt Cupra XE Extreme E and the #6 Rosberg X Racing Extreme E Odyssey 21s are up for grabs within this week’s seasonal events.

The cars you can earn this week are the Porsche 911 “90” 1990 for 20 points, and the Vauxhall Lotus Carlton 1990 for 40 points. 


The Treasure Hunt this week named “Hot and Sandy”, comes with the clue “EVs blaze through the sand and deliver a gold star rated service”.

This requires you to jump into any electric car and earn at least 1 star from the Sand and Deliver Trailblazer.

This PR Stunt can be found within Dunas Blancas in the Western area of the map, and just to the South-West of the Horizon Baja Outpost. 

Upon completion, an orange circle will appear within the eastern area of Dunas Blancas. From here, the treasure chest can be found nearby a building and directly in front of a wagon, which is located right next to the Baja California Trail Seasonal Event. 

If you were to fast travel to this event, immediately head left, go off-road and towards a small bungalow, and the chest will be nearby. Simply smash into the Treasure Chest, and the 100FP and 3 points are yours. 


This week’s photo challenge requires you to take a photo of the Lotus Evija 2020 within Dunas Blancas. This car can be bought within the Forzathon Shop for 100FP.

Dunas Blancas can be found in the Western area of the map, the same place where the Treasure Hunt takes place.  

Simply drive-up to the area, open the camera app by using up on the D-pad and tap A to snap the picture to gain the rewards.

Upon completion, the “Applause” Car Horn reward is yours. You can equip this by entering the Car Horn area within the Cars tab in the menu. 


This week’s rewards available within Series 10’s Hot season are two cars, a race suit, and a car horn, alongside the always available Wheelspins. 

The Lotus is not available from the Autoshow, whereas the Lola can be bought for 850,000CR. The available items from the Forzathon Shop this week are: 

  • Lotus Evija 2020 – 100 FP 
  • Extreme E Green Race Suit – 75 FP 
  • Welcome Spring Car Horn – 75 FP 
  • Lola #6 Penske Sunoco T70 MkIIIB 1969 – 300 FP 
  • 1x Super Wheelspin – 150 FP
