Microsoft and Turn 10 debut Ford-themed Xbox controllers for Le Mans

Microsoft and Turn 10 Studios, the developer behind the Forza series, have unveiled three new custom, racing-themed Xbox One controllers. The controllers celebrate automaker Ford's victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans race, following the company's announcement at this year's event of a new GT race car.

The 1965 controller commemorates the first American victory at the Le Mans race in the GT class, which was done in a Shelby Daytona Coupe. The black 1966 controller celebrates the win by Bruce McLaren and Chris Amon the following year in the Ford GT40. Finally, the 1967 controller marks race where Dan Gurney and AJ Foyt passed the 5,000 km mark for the first time.

Microsoft, a sponsor of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, will display the one-of-a-kind controllers at the Ford stand at the race this weekend. The controllers will also be on display next week at E3.

  • Xbox One special edition Ford-themed controller: soon to be bundled in with every new Ford car you purchase or lease.
  • Yes yes yes now please
  • Holy crap I want one. My girl will own the regular one that came in the box haha.
    They better sell these!
  • In the immortal words of Will Smith in the 1996 classic Independence Day, "I gotta get me one of these!"
  • Mario themed controller
  • Pssh, I have Mario, Luigi, and Yoshi controllers for my Wii U (had no interest in the Peach one).
  • I'm hurt.
  • Sorry, Princess.
  • I think you meant, "Well excuuuse me, Princess"
  • Your controller is in another gamer's house.
  • Hahahaha!
  • How could you not get the fourth?
  • I only needed 2, and got Mario and Luigi. I got the Yoshi as a Christmas gift, as it's only sold internationally. Plus, it's Yoshi. I've since added a Pro controller to the ranks, and given that we're usually only playing with 2-3 people, the 7 controllers we currently have (GamePad, Pro controller, white WiiMotion, 3 character WiiMotion Plus) cover all of the bases as it is. No sense in spending $40 on an eighth method of input when I don't even care about the character it's based on.
  • YES!
  • Nice collectors item!
  • that will collect boogers.
