Okay the basics are: You're gonna do a single challenge per car, 146 times.

There should be exactly 146 cars in the game by default, including free sample DLC. Unicorn, special edition and DLC cars do count, however. So if you're like me and have purchased the season pass you'll have frankly a huge list of extra cars to choose from, a grand total of 211 if you have every single one.

So that being said, the most effective way of doing this is by following all the other achievements first along with this, so consider this a guide for those as well!

Anyway, pretty much all challenges can be done around the heart of Colorado near the shops. Nearly all of the easiest challenges have you either drift, burnout, near miss, jump or a doing a few(2,3 or 5) of those at a specific length(Great/Ultimate, the likes). This really won't take you longer than two or three hours in total if you've got a massive backlog of DLC like I do.

But I'm writing it so that only a handful of DLC vehicles are necessary, if you do have the DLC for any of the achievements and don't feel like coughing up money for a default car that you can do for cheap with a DLC car, just tick one off and consider it whatever you're driving! :D

Also, a checklist for you guys!

Edit: Might as well note two more things; One is that you can't use your Clubs cars, has to be yours and yours only! (Thanks Sampa1)
Edit #2: You can buy a car, get a medal and sell it again. (Thanks to JimmyTheKidd02 for confirming that one!)

SNAKE CHARMER & MY FIRST CHALLENGE - 3/146 total
DLC REQUIRED

Simply pull off a challenge in all three Shelby's in the game:
o #1 - 2012 Shelby 1000 -- November Bondurant Pack
o #2 - 1965 Shelby Cobra 427 S/C -- November Bondurant Pack
o #3 - 1965 Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe -- Barn Find


SIR CHALLENGE-A-LOT - 23/146 total
PART OF IT'S JUST MONEY 4/14 total


You'll need the free download for the Ultima GTR or this achievement cannot be done. Also this list includes the three British barn finds, two of which valued over a million so that's two less from that one! Also the Aston One-77 is gotten from reaching popularity rank #1 and is also valued at 1.8 mil and there's the McLaren F1GT, so that's four off!

o #4 - 2011 Aston Martin V12 Zagato (Villa d'Este)
o #5 - 2012 Bentley Continental GT
o #6 - 2010 Aston Martin One-77 -- #1 Popularity/1.8 mil value
o #7 - 1964 Aston Martin DB5 -- Barn Find
o #8 - 1956 Jaguar D-Type Jaguar -- Barn Find/3 mil value
o #9 - 1958 Aston Martin DBR1 -- Barn Find/6 mil value
o #10 - 2012 Land Rover Range Rover Supercharged
o #11 - 2009 Lotus 2-Eleven
o #12 - 1961 Jaguar E-type S1
o #13 - 2011 Lotus Evora S
o #14 - 2006 Lotus Exige Cup 240
o #15 - 2011 McLaren MP4-12C
o #16 - 1997 McLaren F1GT -- 4 mil value
o #17 - 2011 Radical SR8 RX
o #18 - 2005 TVR Sagaris
o #19 - 2012 Ultima GTR -- Free download
o #20 - 2012 Ascari KZ1R
o #21 - 2012 Eagle Speedster
o #22 - 2010 Noble M600
o #23 - 2012 Jaguar XKR-S
(You can replace a bunch of these with the massive pile of additional DLC, there's a few extra Aston Martins, a Bowler, a Lotus and several more but this is one of the two achievements obtainable without DLC)


FORD CHAMPION - 36/146 total
PART OF IT'S JUST MONEY 5/14 new total

First off, download the free samples Ford Country Squire and Mustang Cobra R. Then you simply pretty much have to own every other non-DLC Ford in the game, also includes another 1.5 million car; The GT40.

o #24 - 1956 Ford F100
o #25 - 1966 Ford Country Squire -- Free download
o #26 - 2011 Ford F-150SVT Raptor
o #27 - 2013 Ford Focus ST
o #28 - 2005 Ford GT
o #29 - 1966 Ford GT40 Mkll -- 1.5 mil value
o #30 - 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429
o #31 - 1995 Ford Mustang Cobra R -- Free download
o #32 - 1985 Ford RS200 Evolution
o #33 - 2013 Ford Shelby GT500
o #34 - 1987 Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500
o #35 - 2010 Ford Focus RS500
o #36 - 2009 Ford Fiesta ZETEC S*
* (Do note that I received the Fiesta ZETEC S even though I am not a VIP or have participated in any events that would give me it, so I'm guessing(!) that this is unlocked for everyone, if you can't get this I'm afraid you'll have to buy a DLC Ford like the Transit)


WELL ENGINEERED 46/146 total
DLC REQUIRED

I'm told there's 9 BMW's in the base game but ultimately I'm only able to find eight, not counting the M3 GTR. I've checked multiple lists around and it keeps going back on 8 with the M3 GTR being 9 and then there's two DLC cars. Just be sure to grab the free BMW M3 GTR sample from the Top Gear pack. Also one of the cars has to be found as a Barn Find.

o #37 - 2011 BMW 1 Series M Coupe
o #38 - 1973 BMW 2002 Turbo
o #39 - 1981 BMW M1 -- Barn Find
o #40 - 2002 BMW M3 GTR -- Free download
o #41 - 1991 BMW M3
o #42 - 2008 BMW E92 M3
o #43 - 2012 BMW M5
o #44 - 2013 BMW M6 Coupe
o #45 - 2012 BMW Z4 sDrive28i
o #46 - 2013 BMW M135Ì OR 2010 BMW M3 GTS -- November or March DLC


NISSAN NINJA - 53/146 total
DLC REQUIRED

PART OF IT'S JUST MONEY 6/14 new total

Be sure to grab the free Nissan R390 on the marketplace! For the rest? This is a tricky situation... If you're one of those lucky guys who has the pre-order 370Z, you won't need any additional DLC. If you don't? Ahh I got bad news... You'll need one. You have a choice of a 240SX SE or the Datsun 510 at that point.

o #47 - 2010 Nissan 370Z -- Pre-order code or Pre-order DLC Pack
o #48 - 1969 Nissan Fairlady Z432
o #49 - 2012 Nissan GT-R Black Edition Nissan
o #50 - 1998 Nissan R390 -- Free download/1.2 mil value
o #51 - 2000 Nissan Silvia spec-R
o #52 - 1971 Nissan Skyline 2000GT-R
o #53 - 2002 Nissan Skyline GT-R V-spec II
(47 can be replaced with 1993 Nissan 240SX SE or 1970 Nissan Datsun 510)


LAMBORGHINI LOVER - 61/146 total
DLC REQUIRED

Seven out of eight Lamborghini's available are on-disc, that means you'll have to be either a VIP to have the 2011 Lamborghini Sesto Elemento which is one step closer to It's Just Money... Or be a Season Pass owner for the 2006 Lamborghini Miura Concept.

If you have got access to neither, you'll have to score one of the DLC Lamborghini's; 2012 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Spyder Performante or 2012 Lamborghini Aventador J. Personally I'd suggest the Aventador J as it's valued at 2.7 million ingame which is another step closer to the It's Just Money achievement.

o #54 - 2012 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 LP700-4
o #55 - 1988 Lamborghini Countach LP5000 QV
o #56 - 1997 Lamborghini Diablo SV
o #57 - 2011 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera
o #58 - 1967 Lamborghini Miura P400
o #59 - 2010 Lamborghini Murciélago LP 670-4 SV
o #60 - 2009 Lamborghini Reventon Roadster
o #61 - 2012 Lamborghini Aventador J -- October DLC Pack/2.7 mil value
(61 can be replaced with 2012 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Spyder Performante -- Bondurant DLC or 2011 Lamborghini Sesto Elemento/2.5 mil value -- VIP Pack or 2006 Lamborghini Miura Concept -- Season Pass exclusive)


FERRARI FAN - 75/146
PART OF IT'S JUST MONEY 10-13/14 new total

The other achievement entirely obtainable without any DLC. You just have to be rich... Very rich. Also quite a few are barn finds...

o #62 - 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa -- Barn Find/8 mil value
o #63 - 2007 Ferrari 430 Scuderia
o #64 - 2011 Ferrari 458 Spider
o #65 - 2010 Ferrari 599XX -- 1.5 mil value
o #66 - 2009 Ferrari California
o #67 - 2002 Ferrari Enzo -- 1.2 mil value
o #68 - 1995 Ferrari F355 Challenge
o #69 - 1989 Ferrari F40 Competizione -- 1.5 mil value
o #70 - 1987 Ferrari F40
o #71 - 1995 Ferrari F50
o #72 - 2011 Ferrari FF
o #73 - 1984 Ferrari GTO
o #74 - 1996 Ferrari F50 GT -- 1.2 mil value
o #75 - 2005 Ferrari FXX -- 2.5 mil value
(If you're like me and you just can't seem to unlock the 250 Testa Rossa cause the Barn Finds system seems... bugged, the 1991 Ferrari 512 TR from the February Pack is a nice cheap solution but you'll need to find another car for the It's Just Money achievement. There's also about 3 more considerably cheap Ferrari's as DLC, if these are too expensive.)


ITS JUST MONEY - 79/146

If you've been on par with this guide you should have about 10 to about 13 of these checked off at least, that leaves either 1 to about 4. You have A LOT of options for this one, I'll dot out the cheapest for ya'.

o #76 - 2012 Hennessey Venom GT -- 1 mil value
o #77 - 2009 Koenigsegg CCX-R Edition -- 1 mil value
o #78 - 2010 SSC Ultimate Aero -- 1 mil value
o #79 - 2010 Pagani Zonda R -- 1.7 mil value
(If you need more cause you skipped on the 250 Testa Rossa or any others, I'll list a fifth and sixth: 2011 Bugatti Veyron Super Sport -- 2.2 mil and the 2008 Maserati MCI 2 Versione Corse -- 1.8 mil)

So that leaves you with all the achievements and 79 cars into this one! Now to make the last half easy, I'll attempt to list out the remaining 67 cheapest easiest to obtain cars without DLC. Well, you should download that nifty free Honda pack. It'll get you a long way.

In order from roughly the cheapest(around or under 100k) to the most expensive.

o #80 - 2010 Abarth 500 esseesse
o #81 - 1968 Abarth 595 esseesse
o #82 - 2006 Audi RS 4
o #83 - 1983 Audi Sport quattro
o #84 - 2010 Audi TT RS Coupe
o #85 - 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe
o #86 - 1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS Coupe
o #87 - 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1
o #88 - 2010 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Convertible
o #89 - 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 427
o #90 - 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1
o #91 - 1964 Chevrolet Impala SS 409
o #92 - 2011 Citroën DS3 Racing
o #93 - 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392
o #94 - 1969 Dodge Charger R/T
o #95 - 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8
o #96 - 2013 Honda Civic Si Coupe -- Free download
o #97 - 1986 Honda Civic Si -- Free download
o #98 - 2004 Honda Civic Type-R
o #99 - 2012 Honda HPD Fit -- Free download
o #100 - 2002 Honda Integra Type-R
o #101 - 2003 Honda S2000
o #102 - 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe
o #103 - 2012 Infiniti IPL G Coupé
o #104 - 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8
o #105 - 1992 Lancia Delta Integrale EVO
o #106 - 1974 Lancia Stratos HF Stradale
o #107 - 2009 Lexus IS F
o #108 - 1997 Mazda RX-7
o #109 - 2004 Mazda RX-8 Mazdaspeed
o #110 - 1985 Toyota Sprinter Trueno GT Apex
o #111 - 1998 Toyota Supra RZ
o #112 - 2013 Viper GTS Viper '13
o #113 - 1967 Volkswagen Beetle
o #114 - 1995 Volkswagen Corrado VR6
o #115 - 1992 Volkswagen Golf GTi 16v Mk2
o #116 - 1984 Volkswagen Rabbit GTI
o #117 - 2011 Volkswagen Scirocco R

Now I'm afraid this solution is getting uhh... Well insanely long. So I'll save the last 29 for you to work out. The tough choice really now relies on you wanting to purchase DLC cars and get the last bunch faster and cheaper in-game, or purchase the remaining cars in the game for between 125k and a million.

So my apologies for the length and leaving it semi incomplete!

Hope I atleast managed to kickstart your collecting spree to fair speed, goodluck!
Sampa1Thanks for taking the time to write this up! smile
I'd like to add that for players that are members of a car club, using cars in the club garage will not count as the cars have to be in your OWN garage.

Posted by Runner7922 on 17 Apr 13 at 12:38
Faith of FayeThank you :3

And I'm not entirely sure if you can sell cars you got a challenge on but it should be allowed
Posted by Faith of Faye on 17 Apr 13 at 18:46
JimmyTheKidd02Yes, after you get the medal, you can gift or sell the car and keep the medals!

K1LL3R BEEZHow exactly did you get the bonus Ford Fiesta ZETEC? I looked through the Autoshow and it's not there for me. I assume then that it's a VIP car?
Posted by K1LL3R BEEZ on 18 Apr 13 at 04:49
Faith of FayeI'm told it was a VIP reward from back in November, but I'm not a VIP and I didn't get the season pass(stupidly enough) 'til the January pack landed so... I honestly haven't got a clue on how to get the Fiesta ZETEC nowadays, I assume it's a unicorn D:
Posted by Faith of Faye on 18 Apr 13 at 05:29
Chris8875Faith of Faye - this is a remarkably well thought out solution to not only this achievement, but all of them in the DLC.

Thanks so much for your hard work, it is hugely appreciated.
Posted by Chris8875 on 19 Apr 13 at 04:50
Faith of FayeAnytime! :D
Posted by Faith of Faye on 19 Apr 13 at 20:34
Sera Di SiahGreat guide, but I freaking hate the fact that the DLC is free BUT you still gotta pay over 1200MSP to get all the rest of the cars required to obtain all the achievements. 400MSP for 2 Shelbys? Really? Are you kidding me? 2 bucks for an ingame car I'll use once? What a sneaky way to still charge money.
Posted by Sera Di Siah on 21 Apr 13 at 02:33
Faith of FayeYeah I gotta admit, as much as I love Horizon and the Forza series in general, this is a bit of a kick in the guts. Lord knows the paid DLC hasn't been exactly amazing, makes pretty much no sense as to why they made the Shelby achievement with two thirds of it being restricted to paid DLC.
Posted by Faith of Faye on 21 Apr 13 at 21:57
Sera Di SiahI need about 15 more cars but they're all 200k and up, do you know a nice way to get quick cash? I've already done all sponsorship challenges and finished to story so got that 10 million aswell.
Posted by Sera Di Siah on 23 Apr 13 at 15:40
Faith of FayeI ended up re-doing a lot of the end-tier sprint races, they're paying decently. I'm not sure but the Street Races should still pay out on do-overs and they were a pretty good source of money.

I gotta admit, I got balls out lucky in the few times I played multiplayer where I got the crazy expensive cars and the 3+ million payout, maybe that's a decent way to go too. Same with rivals if you're good at it D:
Posted by Faith of Faye on 23 Apr 13 at 21:35
Dobo1912KNIGHTExcellent guide and I am really enjoying getting stuck into some of this. Please can you tell me though how you got the 2012 Ultima GTR? Its stated as a free download but I cannot find it anywhere. Thanks
Posted by Dobo1912KNIGHT on 27 Apr 13 at 07:02
Faith of FayeFar as I'm aware now, I'm misinformed as all hell. It should be in the default game D:

Posted by KOSTAS A M GR on 03 May 13 at 07:06
LoganMerazziJust a correction for this DLC. It's not offline.
You must be logged to Xbox Live.
If you aren't, those medals will be unobtainable.
Posted by LoganMerazzi on 19 May 13 at 00:31
Zerstoerer DAwesome guide. You did well to clearly lay out how to obtain the cars necessary for the various achievements. Especially which ones are not on the disc.

Posted by Hmizzz on 13 Jan 14 at 19:08
OpproperaarIt would appear I'm short one car. I still need 38 cars but I have only 37 non-dlc cars left in the list (in-game list btw so I know I'm not wrong). I'm wondering if I need to win a unicorn car to make up for the last one.
Posted by Opproperaar on 23 Jan 14 at 10:04
Bobblehead@HozoukiSuigetsu - Yes you actually have to be logged into Xbox Live and the Forza.net or whatever has to be up and running. If you are not logged in or the server is down for some reason and you obtain a medal, the medal will say "Uploading" and then it will say "Uploading failed" or something to that extent and you will have to do the medal over again. The server went down for a few hours once when I was playing and couldn't earn any medals so I just didn't play the game til it came back up.

El Pot0 MagicHey dude
Execellent guide, gives all the info you need..

One thing I fucked up in. I did all 5-6 challenges per car.
Might wanna highlight that line, you wrote in the top, just in case there's more dumbass's like me out there ;)
Posted by El Pot0 Magic on 03 Feb 14 at 22:26
Randomii666If you have the Horizon rally expansion, you will only need to buy the November Bondurant pack for this achievement, but you need lots of credits in game. I suggest either doing the champion of champions race over and over, racing online, or, if you are good at drifting, take a car like supra, rx7, mx5 miata or something like that, fully tune it and kill those tires. When you have reached reputation 1. You will get 500,000 cr every time the fame meter goes around. And if you are really good/lucky getting it around can be done in around 30 minutes.

MasTRE007Is there an in-game list of the cars you've gotten a medal in or do you need to keep track manually (pen & paper)?
Posted by MasTRE007 on 12 Oct 14 at 18:23
Andrinho7xIf you press start, in the menu there's the "1000 club" item. From there you can keep track of how many cars you still need to get a medal with for the various achievements and it will also list you the cars available for any particular achievement.
Posted by Andrinho7x on 05 Nov 14 at 10:51
Andrinho7xIs it possible to gift cars to friends? If so, can I receive a gift car from a friend, get a medal with it and then gift it back? That would make it easier to get the various achievements of this dlc.
Posted by Andrinho7x on 05 Nov 14 at 15:13
DeadBardtI started the game yesterday cause it was free for xboxlive gold members for september 2016, I'm playing on Xbox One and on every medal I win (except for 2) it says first "uploading" and then "uploading failled". I wonder It's like the server is near to be turned off, It's some kind of problem caused by xbox retrocompatibility, or simply It's not a good day for collecting these medals...
Posted by DeadBardt on 02 Sep 16 at 06:48
Its Uncle KevIt's a problem since it came out deadbardt. I tried it on the one first and too thought it was a Xbox one issue. Worked on it from the 360 and was hit and miss. Some auto downloaded and worked and some didn't. If it fails try it again. Eventually it'll work. The most I had to do one till it registered was three times.

AngryKamehamehaHas anyone figured out if the cars can be gifted around? As that would be super easy, and "free"
Posted by AngryKamehameha on 12 Sep 16 at 17:44
mynameisbrYou can gift cars for this achievement. I have some medals on a handful of cars I was gifted. Keep in mind that once you gift a car, it can only be sold for 100 credits.

EarthboundXSo......is this now impossible that the game and DLC are no longer on the store?

I have the main game and this DLC, nothing else.
Posted by EarthboundX on 09 Mar 17 at 13:01
EarthboundXYep, seems to be, you can only get 3, maybe 4 of the achs in the 1000 Pack if you only have the main game and nothing else.
Posted by EarthboundX on 19 Mar 17 at 14:03
thefancypanceI thought I would post this here just in case: the servers were having problems when it went backwards compatible but I got on yesterday and they seem to be working fine. I checked club cars, rivals, and 1000 club and they didnt give me any errors.

That being said if you dont have the dlc cars then your only option is to find someone who does have the dlc and get them to sign into your xbox so you can use their account to download it.

Armor BiffVery nice guide indeed. Probably one of the best I've seen on this site. Got the Snake Charmer achievement yesterday and will continue to work on the rest. I have the season pass and a bunch of other DLC (Xbox One lists a total of 12 items) so getting the "correct" cars should not be a problem, only lack of money smile
