Forza Horizon is back for another year, and that means Barn Finds are back too. If you’re new to series, all you need to know is that as you play through Forza Horizon 4, you’ll periodically get a call telling you that there’s a beat-up old car somewhere for you to find on the map. This will unlock a particular Barn Find, and you’ll be given a rough area to search. But, it’s up to you to explore the zone and pinpoint the location of the barn yourself.
Sometimes this is easy, and sometimes it can really tricky–barns can be in plain sight or hidden within a dense forest. But finding them is worth it–the rare and iconic cars will be restored over time and gifted to you for free, adding a nice boost to your Car Collection level. If you’re having trouble locating some of these Barn Finds, or just want to save yourself some time, this guide will help you find the exact location of the barns for particular cars.
How To Use This Guide: We’ve provided screenshots of the barn locations on the world map, a photo of what it looks like in-game, and a shot of the restored car you’ll get. We suggest using these images along with Horizon’s Drone Mode (use RB to boost!) to quickly track these down.
A Quick Note: Forza Horizon 4 features a version of Great Britain that has rolling seasons, which change every 7 real-world days. As such, there are a small handful of Barn Finds that are exclusive to Autumn, Winter, Summer, and Spring. At the time of writing, we’ve only experienced Autumn, Summer, and Winter, but we’ll update this guide with information about the other Barn Finds as the seasons change, so come back then!
Additionally, there is one Barn Find that is exclusive to one of the game’s Properties, Bamburgh Castle, so you’ll have to cough up a cool 10 million Credits to buy and unlock that one. You may also encounter Barn Finds in a slightly different order to our list, but a quick reference of the World Map should let you know what you’re looking for.

1983 Audi Sport Quattro
This B-Class Audi Sport is an All-Wheel Drive built for both road and rally. The barn is located within a forest just below Derwent Reservoir, as in, literally just below the “Derwent Reservoir” name on the world map.
1986 Ford Escort RS Turbo
This Ford Escort is was limited to just 5000 models when it was released back in the 80’s. It’s a C-Class vehicle in Horizon 4, and you can find its barn at the peak of a mountain in the Scottish Highlands, west of Glen Rannoch. Make sure you bring an AWD to climb those inclines!
1993 Jaguar XJ220
The XJ220 is built for racing and was the fastest production car from 1992-1993. It’s ranked S1, and you’ll find its barn tucked away on a private country road east of Ambleside.
1961 Jaguar E-Type S1
This rare Series 1 version of the E-Type roadster is a C-class in Horizon 4. You’ll find the barn just off a dirt road in the south of Tarn Hows.
1997 Lotus Elise GT1
Who left this one to rust? The Lotus GT1 touring car is an S1 vehicle and hidden just west of Horizon 4’s slate quarry.
1966 MG MGB GT
A real British classic, the MGB is a D-Class car in a fetching gumboot green that will make you feel like you’ve gone back in time. This one’s hidden on a small hill on the edge of a strip of trees in Astmoor.
1965 Mini Cooper S
Who doesn’t love a Mini? Well, anyone who needs luggage space, I guess. Regardless, this D-class version of the classic little car is hidden in a small valley on the far west of the map, on the southern end of Derwent Water.
1998 Subaru Impreza 22B STI
Another classic rally staple, this 90’s WRX STI is only a B-class initially but is screaming for an upgrade. It’s hidden in a creepy part of Lakehurst Forest, by the side of a dirt road.
1962 Triumph Spitfire
Yet another British classic, the Spitfire convertible doesn’t have a lot of grunt, but is perfect for relaxing country drives. This one is hidden very sneakily within a thick patch of bushes and trees just outside the Express Railyard, which we spent far too much time in during our hunt.
1998 TVR Cerbera Speed 12
This high-performance concept car never went into production, but thanks to the magic of video games, you can own and drive one for free! It’s an S1 class vehicle, and its barn is located just east of the Greendale Airstrip.
Summer Season Exclusive – 1962 Peel P50
The adorable little D-class Peel micro-car is only available during summer. It’s hidden in a forest between Ashbrook and Broadway, and perfect for those quick trips down to the shops.
Autumn Season Exclusive – 1960 Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato
Like the name suggests, this Aston Martin is only available during the autumn season. Another 60’s classic, only around 25 of these things were produced. You can pick it up very easily just south of the Horizon Festival Site, in a nice open field.
Winter Season Exclusive – 1973 Land Rover Range Rover
This hardy Range Rover is a great vehicle to tackle the ice and snow of Horizon’s Winter. You’ll find the barn on a small island in the middle of the Derwent Water lake, which is completely frozen over during winter.
Property Exclusive – 1930 Bentley Blower
We’ll update this article when we can afford to spend 10 million credits on Bamburgh Castle. If you’ve saved up 10 million credits in Forza Horizon 4… well, that’s an amazing effort.
Spring Season Exclusive – ???
We’ll update this article when the seasons change and we get access to this seasonal Barn Find!
