Forza Motorsport 5 Will Feature Digital Cousin of The Stig from Top Gear

Posted on October 10, 2013 AT 01:58pm

The digital cousin of Top Gear‘s anonymous, silent racing savant The Stig will be a race-able opponent in Forza Motorsport 5, a new trailer from Top Gear reveals.

The Stig is known for his mechanical precision as a driver, and according to Top Gear exists “for one reason alone—to wring every last drop of performance out of any car he drives, giving us a definitive lap time around our demanding test track.” Said mechanical precision can be witnessed int he video below, in which completes seven laps on the Top Gear test track, every one with an identical 1.11.500 lap time.

“Yes, Internet, making his debut in Forza Motorsport 5 is the virtual version of our tame racing driver—though this one’s slightly different,” reads the video’s description. “He—or it—is allegedly beatable. But only if you’re really good.”

Developed by Turn 10 Studios, Forza Motorsport 5 launches exclusively for the Xbox One alongside the console on November 22 in North America and Europe.
