Forza Motorsport 5 quickly blazed onto the scene with the Xbox One launch back in November as one of the best new titles for Microsoft’s debuting console, and now after holding a contest at the end of last year to design a Forza car, a digital dream is about to turn into reality.

Through a contest held in cooperation with Honda last November for participants to design an in-game Honda Civic using assets from Forza Horizon, Honda and the team behind Forza Motorsport 5 selected a winning design from entrant Tiffany Labedz. After making a design for a Honda Civic Si Coupe, Labedz’s design received the most votes out of 170 designs, and overall the contest received well over 17,000 voting members of the Forza community.

The winning design for the “one-of-a-kind Civic” from Tiffany Labedz will be unveiled on Friday, February 7th at the Chicago Auto Show with the distinction of being “the first vehicle to feature a design from the Forza Motorsport community.” The in-game car will also be playable at Xbox One demo stations with Forza Motorsport 5  for the duration of the Chicago Auto Show, which will take place from February 8th-17th, 2014.
