Forza Horizon 5 is set to offer the players two new vehicles as a part of a collaboration promoting the upcoming Barbie movie by Greta Gerwig. Pro-racer YouTuber Don Joewon Song spotted the inclusion of two new Barbie themed cars in the game. These cars are currently only listed in Horizon Promo, with the developer offering no clue on how players can purchase them or when they will be unlocked for the players.
Forza just casually adding a Barbie EV Corvette…
A little strange as this wasn't announced anywhere during the Official-Forza stream.
There's also a Barbie variation of the GMC Hummer EV Truck. pic.twitter.com/QUAqwW2r3Q

Barbie’s iconic hot pink Corvette is coming to Forza Horizon 5
The cars from the upcoming Barbie movie that will be making an appearance in Forza Horizon 5 are – a hot pink 1956 Corvette EV as well as a GMC Hummer EV pickup truck. The iconic pink Corvette has been associated with Barbie for years and the car also makes a distinct appearance in one of the movie’s trailers. Some footage was also leaked by YouTuber Aziial, which displayed the Corvette in action in Forza Horizon 5. The leaked footage includes a car customization menu, as well as a cross-country circuit event gameplay.
The Barbie movie is set to release on July 21. It’s possible that these cars, and perhaps some cosmetic items and a new map, will be released a couple of weeks before the movie’s release as a promotional event. The developer, Playground Games, is yet to make any official announcement about these cars. Some fans are hoping that this collab will be a purely promotional event, with the developers offering the cars for free during a specific time.
The movie comes out July 21 so i assume it will be a free thing that week

Both cars aren't going to be added to my garage. I know they might be free, but when it comes to my conscience. I can see it giving me a good talking too if they were added to my garage. Plus, the nightmares it would put me through wouldn't be fun.
