The lure of racing games is not just about the race or the speed. It’s also about getting to take control of machines that are well out of reach for most of us. Microsoft demonstrates that they know this well, by teasing a new Forza Game with its cover car, the freshly-unveiled Lamborghini Centenario.
With the Lamborghini namesake, of course the Centenario can be nothing less than a super-sleek, super-powerful supercar. Having just been unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, the car is also super-limited, with only 40 in existence. Standout features include a striking, almost outlandish design, the most powerful engine Lamborghini has ever produced, and an astronomical asking price of $1.9 million.
Such an excessive car is probably fitting for Microsoft’s Forza franchise, long achieved legendary status among realistic-driving gamers; the latest cover car is the Ford GT for Forza Motorsport 6. While nothing about the upcoming title is revealed in the teaser except for the fact it’s part of Microsoft’s E3 lineup, many expect it to be Forza Horizon 3. Whichever it is, we can’t wait to get behind the wheels of Lamborghini’s newest crazy speed machine, making the wait for E3 that much harder.
For those of you who just can’t wait, however, Forza and Lamborghini are firing up a “Super Trofeo” experience on Forza Motorsport 6:
Starting today, Turn 10 Studios and Lamborghini will be giving “Forza Motorsport 6” players of all skill levels the Lamborghini Super Trofeo series experience. In the first season, players will compete in time trial-based “Rivals” events, as well as ranked multiplayer “Leagues” using the 2014 Lamborghini Gallardo Super Trofeo. Based on how they place in their division or leaderboard rank in “Rivals,” players will be gifted the exclusive 2015 Huracán Super Trofeo and be invited to participate in the second season of competition, with additional prizes awarded throughout.
