The Cadillac V-Series.R race car debuted for real-life competition in the IMSA series for the 2023 racing season, and now, fans will be able to take control of the Hypercar-class machine in the virtual realm in the Forza Motorsport video game.
The Cadillac V-Series.R will be just one of many vehicles available to own, customize and race in the forthcoming Forza Motorsport, which will be the latest installment in Turn 10 Studios’ simulator-style motorsport video game franchise. To make this possible, Cadillac provided detailed renderings and information about the V-Series.R one year ahead of the race car’s actual debut, allowing the gaming studio the ability to build a virtual version of the car as close to the real-life one as possible.
“This is a big year for Cadillac Racing and Cadillac’s V-Series performance vehicles. We’re celebrating 20 years of V-Series and are fresh off a return to the 24 Hours of Le Mans, one of the world’s greatest endurance races,” said Meagan Quinn, Cadillac V-Series marketing manager, in a statement “We’re excited for our fans to race and experience the Cadillac V-Series.R themselves, and for performance enthusiasts around the world to experience Cadillac V-Series.”
Additionally, the Cadillac V-Series.R will be featured on the cover of Forza Motorsport, alongside the Chevy Corvette E-Ray, another vehicle from Cadillac parent company, General Motors.
“All of us at Turn 10 Studios are excited for players to experience the generational leap in fidelity, immersion and realism of Forza Motorsport, the most technically advanced and authentic racing game we’ve ever made,” said Chris Esaki, Creative Director of Forza Motorsport at Turn 10 Studios. “We’re equally proud of our relationship with General Motors and can’t wait for fans to experience the stunning 2023 No. 01 Cadillac Racing V-Series.R and 2024 Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray in-game when Forza Motorsport launches on October 10th.”
Forza Motorsport will be available to gamers on Xbox and PC.
