After its release earlier this month, Forza Horizon 5 quickly became one of the most popular games of the year. The Xbox exclusive offers gamers a ton of things to see and do, and it looks like a lot is just scratching the surface. Notably, players have a lot of options for customizing cars, and many have created some really nice paint jobs. Reddit user roam_hylia did just that, sharing an amazing paint scheme for the Lamborghini based on the character of Transformers Hot Rod. It’s a mind-blowing recreation, and it even features the classic Autobot badge!
The paint job was first shared on the Transformers subreddit, then by @TransformersDen on Twitter. The image, along with the share code, can be found in the Tweet embedded below.

Hot Rod first appeared in the 1986s Transformers: the movie, where he quickly goes from “young turbo punk” to Autobot Commander after opening the Leadership Matrix. He starts the film with a futuristic cybertronian car mode, then gets a Winnebago-inspired makeover after opening the Matrix. Roam_hylia’s paint job is inspired by old car mode, and it works amazingly well, despite being based on a non-existent vehicle. The majority of Hot Rod’s toys have colored the character red, but the paint job captures the faithful cartoon pink in a stunning way. Some Transformers fans have pointed out that Sideswipe would make a bit more sense since he actually morphed into a Lamborghini, but it still works great.
Over the years, many Forza players have created paint jobs inspired by the Transformers franchise, and it’s great to see that tradition continue. It can be difficult for players to surpass what roam_hylia has achieved, but it will be interesting to see what else they can come up with!
