Digital Hot Wheels Cars Featured In Video Game
Forza Motorsport is on a revamp following Turn 10 Studio's latest release of the popular video game. Talk about high-speed chases in virtual reality.
The latest installment from Turn 10 Studio designers features seven new cars, two of which are modeled after real Hot Wheels toy cars, reports Autoblog. The cars could be mistaken for their actual live counterparts.
One of their Hot Wheels digital version is a 2005 Ford Mustang, which was given a not-so-modest makeover given new body modifications and a screaming paint job to add. The Mustang joins the new fleet as homage to the classic car's 50th birthday.
Of course, the Hot Wheels Bone Shaker, with a giant skull face in lieu of a grille, designer Larry Wood's creation would be a sure hit among gamers and fans of the Chevy V8 alike.
TopSpeed also mentioned that three of the Hot Wheels' edition cars are production vehicles, namely, the 2017 Ford Focus RS, 2016 Chevy Camaro SS and the 2015 BMW X6 M. The other members of the Forza Motorsport 6 include Prost's 1990 Ferrari F1, McLaren P1 GTR.
The Hot Wheels edition for Forza Motorsport 6 is slated to be the start of the collaboration between Forza and Hot Wheels, according to Turn 10 Studios. Two cars from the Forza Motorsport 6 Hot Wheels would be available in stores between this month and the next, as collectors' item die-cast models.
Two weeks from today, the 2016 Chevy Camaro SS would be seen in stores, while the 2017 Ford Focus RS would be available by June 20. Another launch of Forza Motorsport HW's Entertainment Series is set in November, showcasing five die-case models of the same game. Turn 10 Studios is also working on Forza Horizon 2 Presents "Fast and Furious," with a 1970 Dodge Charger R/T as one of its cars. More details are coming out soon.
