Players can increase their Collection Tier by earning Car Collection points from purchasing or receiving new cars, with each car featuring a certain Collector Score and being locked to a specific Tier.
As cars from Tiers higher than the player's cannot be bought (but received as rewards), players are encouraged to constantly add new cars to their garage to earn enough points for their respective Tiers to unlock them. By climbing up a Tier, players also get a better set of Driver Level rewards over their previous Tier. After reaching Tier 5, all cars in the Buy Cars menu become available for purchase. Beyond Tier 5, players get a black Collection icon and still better rewards for every new Tier. The following shows the first five Tiers in the title:
|Tier 1 - Common||Initial Tier for all players|
|Tier 2 - Uncommon||Earn 400 points|
|Tier 3 - Rare||Earn 1,400 points|
|Tier 4 - Super Rare||Earn 4,000 points|
|Tier 5 - Legendary||Earn 8,000 points|
Collector Score values for cars are directly related to their price, e.g. a car that costs 1,500,000 CR usually has a Collector Score of +2,700. Cars with higher Collector Scores also tend to be on higher Collection Tiers than cars with lower Scores, though a number of cars from downloadable content and some Forza Driver's Cup reward cars have notably lower Scores than other cars within their own Tier.
Selling cars can reduce the player's Collector Score but does not lock out the player from any recently-unlocked Tiers, making the selling of high-value cars still useful as a way of earning credits needed for more expensive cars or Prize Crates.
Players are offered 20,000 CR rewards when being at the lowest Collection Tier and are able to earn up to 50,000 CR on higher Tiers. Although a majority of car rewards are also available for purchase in the Buy Cars menu, players also have the chance of receiving cars that cannot be bought from the latter:
