Well file this one under the unexpected category. Ford just got to announce Forza Motorsport 6 at the North American International Auto Show. The driving game will feature their brand new performance beast, the new Ford GT.

What is a classic performance vehicle, the new design is just as much supercar as it is a muscle car. The car looks aggressive and just plain fast and it’s easy to see why Forza chose it for the cover.

The Ford GT will ship in 2016 and feature a monster, mid-mounted 3.5 litre V6 with twin-turbos bolted on that will get 447kW or for American readers, 600hp.

Forza has now posted about the announcement and included a delicious launch trailer. Furthermore, they also revealed some other Ford vehicles which will make it to the game. Unfortunately this doesn’t include any FGX V8s for local fans, we’re hoping you let @ForzaMotorsport know how much you want them and they make it in before the game ships.

Today, at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Microsoft and Turn 10 Studios officially announced Forza Motorsport 6, which is in development and will be arriving exclusively on Xbox One. The news came alongside the announcement of the worldwide debut of the all-new Ford GT, which will serve as the cover car for Forza Motorsport 6. In addition, Ford’s performance vehicle line-up will appear in Forza Motorsport 6. This includes the GT, Shelby GT350 Mustang, and the F-150 Raptor, debuted by Ford earlier today at the auto show. As First in Forza vehicles, Forza fans will have the opportunity to drive these cars when they debut in Forza 6.
