Mazda RX7 Spirit R Best Race Tune Forza Horizon 5

This Horizon 5 tuning guide goes through the Mazda RX7 Spirit R Best Race Tune in Forza Horizon 5. We break down every part and tuning needed to make the RX7 stick to the road.

The RX7 is typically associated with JDM and drifting but we decided to make a race tune because we love the car that much. We’ve also got a drift tune for the RX7 that you can check out. The RX7 Spirit R first featured in Forza with the release of Motorsport 2 and has since been in Motorsport 3 and 4 including Horizon 4 and 5. In Horizon 5, the car can be purchased from the Autoshow for 30,000CR

Vehicle History

The RX7 Spirit R Type A is a part of the third generation of Mazda RX7. It is considered the most collectible model because there were only 1500 units produced. There are three models of the Spirit R including Type A, Type B, and Type C.
