With Forza Motorsport 5 and Xbox One looming on the horizon, what better way to ring in a console launch than with a brand new shiny green racing car.
Xbox Australia has announced that they have partnered with Triple Eight Race Engineering to enter the Xbox One Racing Team in the 2013 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000. Driving the Xbox One car will be international champion race drivers Andy Priaulx and Mattias Ekström. The team will be boosted by the support of longtime Xbox ambassador and team mentor (and five-time winner of the V8 Supercar Championship Series) Mark Skaife, as well as the entire team at Triple Eight Race Engineering.
The Xbox One Racing car is the latest Holden VF Commodore and comes equipped with a 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V8 Holden engine, with an estimated output of 640 bhp and a top speed of nearly 300 kph.
Forza Motorsport 5 will be an exclusive launch title for the Xbox One on November 22. The 2013 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 will be held on October 13, 2013, so look out for this green beast to hit the track and see if gaming can meet reality.
