HoloLens and Kinect can be put to the wayside, the most realistic way to feel a rally car is to ride in one. That’s exactly what the head over Xbox Phil Spencer did as part of a promotion for Forza Horizon 2.
The video starts off like a game trailer but then it’s revealed that it’s Phil Spencer who is going to be getting a ride in one of the fastest VW Beetles you’ll ever see. It has 504 horsepower from only a 1.6 liter engine and is the “hero car of the Rockstar Energy Drink Car Pack from Forza Horizon 2.” The driver of the rally car is Tanner Foust who is a “professional rally driver, world-record holder and Xbox ambassador.”
The video is promoting Forza Horizon 2 and also serves as a springboard to bring up a photo contest within the game. Winners of the contest will get signed memorabilia from Tanner Foust.
