The announcement of the next title in the Forza series is still a ways off, but Turn 10 has announced that the Lamborghini Centenario will be gracing its cover. Set to be unveiled at E3 in June, the collaboration with Lamborghini will give Forza fans the exclusive opportunity to experience the Centenario “First in Forza” before its road debut.
“We’re excited to continue our long history of working with Lamborghini and to be part of their 100-year anniversary by celebrating the Centenario as the featured cover car of the next Forza game,” said Phil Spencer, head of Xbox. “It’s an honor to announce our partnership at one of the world’s biggest automotive shows, and we look forward to unveiling the game at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo.”
The Lamborghini Centenario super sports car uses V12 engine architecture, and the naturally aspirated engine produces 770 hp and powers from 0-100 km/h in 2.8 seconds, and from 0-300 km/h in 23.5 seconds with a top speed of more than 350 km/h. It will join the current stable of 14 unique Lamborghini vehicles featured in the Forza franchise on the Xbox One, which are currently showcased in Forzavista with working doors and headlights as well as fully drivable cockpits.
“Working with Microsoft and Turn 10 Studios allows us to broadly share the limited-production Centenario with an unprecedented global audience and let them experience the emotion of driving the most powerful Lamborghini ever produced,” said Maurizio Reggiani, board member for research and development of Automobili Lamborghini.
There’s no indication yet if the Centenario will be gracing the cover of Forza Motorsport 7 or Forza Horizon 3, but given the past release schedule of the games it seems likely that it will be Forza Horizon 3, and if it is would be the second Forza Horizon game to feature a Lamborghini on the cover following the Lamborghini Huracán on the cover of Forza Horizon 2.
