Check out this Xbox Elite Wireless Controller concept based on Ford GT

The recent release of Microsoft's racing sim game Forza Motorsport 6 for the Xbox One included a virtual version of the new Ford GT super sporscar. Now the car maker has created a concept for Microsoft's recently released Xbox Elite Wireless Controller that's based on the Ford GT.

Here's a look at the features of this concept design:

  • Xbox Elite Wireless Controller is a one-off design exercise from the Xbox Hardware team inspired by the Ford GT and the release of Forza Motorsport 6 which features the Ford GT on the cover.
  • Carbon Fiber case parts create rigidity and lightness in the controller, the same way it is used on the GT chassis.
  • Custom metallic paint job matched to Ford's specifications.
  • Left thumbstick shape inspired by the GT steering wheel and angled towards the player for a more ergonomic experience. A horizontal movement limiter also ensures efficiency and accuracy in steering.
  • Custom paddles inspired by the steering column paddles shifters on the GT. Program them on your Xbox One to shift up, down and even to engage the clutch.
  • See through battery door and custom battery pack inspired by the engine compartment and EcoBoost V6 engine.
  • Cutaway brake and accelerator triggers reveal the impulse motors that give Forza Motorsport 6 its realistic feel.

Since this is a concept, there's no word if this version of the controller will ever go on sale
