To show off the capabilities of the new, 2015 Focus ST, Ford will pit the real car and drivers against virtual competitors playing Gran Turismo 6. This is being dubbed as the first virtual versus real race on the famed event’s hill climb.
Of course the lucky gamers won’t be racing just anyone, they’ll be competing against the man formerly known as The Stig. That’s right, gamers will get to see how they compare to Ben Collins, the former Top Gear test driver.
And, if that weren’t exciting enough, the 2015 Mustang will also make its first appearance in the United Kingdom running in the Supercar Class with Ford Team RS vehicle dynamics specialist David Put doing the driving.
So we’ll get to see how the S550 runs on track before it even hits the showrooms!
For now, check out this cool teaser video for the new Focus ST.
