When you are looking for the Forza Horizon 5 best drag cars, your focus has to be in acceleration, speed, and launch. These ensure that you can nip ahead of other racers quickly, and even if your car isn't the fastest, you can often win a race before the faster cars catch up. This means that traditionally, you'll want some of the slimmer and sleeker supercars available within the game. Here's the five Forza Horizon 5 best drag cars we'd recommend.

Making it into the fastest cars in the game, the Koenigsegg Jesko 2020 also makes its way into the Forza Horizon 5 best drag cars list. This slick beast rocks a 10 rating for both Speed and Handling, however, it will initially struggle with that start with just a 6.9 rating for Acceleration and a 7.4 for Launch. As such, we'd recommend leaving this one for those longer drag races, unless you managed to upgrade the acceleration or launch. It also might take you a while to accumulate the funds for this one, as it sits at an eye-watering 2,800,000 CR.

Unlike the Jesko, the Porsche 918 Spyder 2014 makes its way into the Forza Horizon 5 best drag cars list, by being quick off the mark. With a 10 rating for Launch and Acceleration, the start of each race will be like unleashing a rocket. Despite not being as high as some cars, this Speed isn't too shabby either, with an 8.8 rating, meaning your Acceleration should be more than enough to dominate most drag races. It also comes in at a comparatively cheap 850,000 CR. Bargain.

With a 10 rating for Acceleration and 9.2 for Speed, you've got some decent stats. Not to mention that Launch comes in with 7.4, making it a very decent choice for those a little light on cash.

While shelling out additional cash is never the most appealing, the BMW X5 M Forza Edition is actually one of the best cars in the game with a 10 rating for Handling, Acceleration, and Launch. You'll need to boost that speed a little, as it sits down at 8, however the X5 M is an excellent all-rounder that also is a match made in heaven for drag races.
