Forza Horizon 5 Shaken Not Stirred is a Street Racing Accolade that causes a lot of frustration, mainly because it is bugged.
While it is a very accessible Accolade, FH5 Shaken Not Stirred is (for now) unobtainable since the car in the description doesn’t exist in the video game developed by Playground Games.
Because there are a lot of discussions regarding the Shaken Not Stirred Forza Horizon 5 Street Racing Accolade, below I’ll tell you everything you need to know about it.
Forza Horizon 5 - How To Get A 1977 Aston Martin V8 Vantage
If you wonder how to get a 1977 Aston Martin V8 Vantage in Forza Horizon 5, the answer is simple and can save you a lot of time.
You can’t because this specific model is not in the game yet.
Even without checking the latest developer notes below, you can notice that the Forza Horizon 5 1977 Aston Martin V8 Vantage doesn’t appear in your Car Collection.
Many players assume that the FH5 1977 Aston Martin V8 Vantage is a secret or a hidden car; however, this is not the case because, as developers clearly outlined, if a car is not in the Car Collection, then it doesn’t exist.
Now, because there are many typos in the game (most of them related to the accolades’ descriptions), you may think that for the Shaken Not Stirred Accolade, the 1977 Aston Martin V8 Vantage is, in fact, another car.
Typically you’ll want to start buying all Aston Martin models and try them to see if the said Accolade unlocks.
Again, this is not the case because there is no typo here. This is a different kind of bug caused by a human error. Or, to be blunt, developers forgot to add this car.
So, without the 1977 Aston Martin V8 Vantage, the Forza Horizon 5 Shaken Not Stirred Accolade can’t be unlocked.
Despite all the bad news and the frustration caused by this Accolade, there is two good news.
The first and most important one is that Playground Games developers are aware of this bug since it was added to the FH5 Known Issues list below.
If you want to check the list, simply visit the Forza Support page here.
As you can see, the list (yeah, it’s large) shows all known issues and bugs.
So, the FH5 Shaken Not Stirred Accolade bug is a known issue.

Forza Horizon 5 Shaken Not Stirred Bug Fix
Now that you know why you can’t complete this specific Accolade, the obvious question is when the bug will be fixed.
Luckily there is some good news for all of us, and you can find them in your in-game Message Center or by checking the latest Community update on forzamotorsport.net here.
According to developers, the next update will include a lot of fixes and address many multiplayer issues.
Hopefully, the next update will be released alongside Forza Horizon 5 Season 2 on December 9th, 2021.
The second season also introduces a new type of collectibles, holiday decorations, and much more.
This is not a minor update but a bigger one, with many improvements and fixes.
On top of this, the devs decided to award players 1,000 Forzathon Points.
So, it is just a matter of time (hopefully six days) until the Forza Horizon 5 Shaken Not Stirred bug fix releases.
Once it does, the Accolade should unlock simply by winning a Street Race in the required car.
