These special Ford inspired Xbox One controllers aren't new, but since we weren't at Le Mans for the 24hr race, Gamescom is the first chance we've had to see them. And we still can't have them, either.
These not for sale controllers are inspired by three historic racers made by Ford. There's a 1965, 1966 and 1967 controller in blue, black and red respectively. The 1965 controller commemorates the first American victory at the Le Mans race in the GT class in a Shelby Daytona Coupe. The black controller celebrates the win by Bruce McLaren and Chris Amon the following year in the Ford GT40, while the red 1967 controller marks Dan Gurney and AJ Foyt passing the 5,000 km mark for the first time.
Microsoft had them on display at its Gamescom presentation along with a very special Ford Focus RS decked out in Forza 6 colors. It's clear that Microsoft and Turn 10 are pulling out all the stops with the biggest Forza game yet. We'll have a preview of Forza 6 in the coming days but for now feast your eyes on the controllers in the gallery below.
