Spyker C8 Laviolette LM85 exclusively in Forza Motorsport 3
Just a month before the 24 Hours of Le Mans race, Spyker, the hand-built exotic cars manufacturer in collaboration with Xbox is sticking in some of the incredibly thrilling and passionate spirit of the iconic competition into Xbox 360's ultra-successful monstrous racing game, Forza Motorsport 3.
The astonishing Spyker C8 Laviolette LM85 comes as a gift car from the Forza's Exotic Car Pack, which is already available at the Xbox LIVE Marketplace for 400 Microsoft Points. Offering virtually the ultimate exclusiveness of the Spyker rides, the C8 Laviolette LM85 is a ultra-rare, limited to only 24 units car in the real world. Some of the most distinctive features of the ride includes burnt almond orange shade contrasted by Gun Metal ‘S' logo, mean aerodynamic body, lightweight aluminium stiff spaceframe chassis, fully independent double wishbone suspension and naturally aspirated 4.2-litres V8 Audi powerplant, which delivers 400 horsepower at 6,800 rpm and 480 Nm of maximum torque at just 3,500 revs. Fitted with these goodies, the car is capable to cover the classic 0 to 100 km/h acceleration sprint in 4.5 seconds flat, before reaching a top speed of 300 kmh.
For the curious Forza Motorsport 3 gamers, the C8 Laviolette's additional LM85 initials reflects the starting number of Spyker Squadron's GT2 race cars at Le Mans since its first entry in 2002.
Victor Muller, Spyker CEO explains: "We've created something very special and unique with the LM85. It's very exciting to share our creation and passion with the Xbox and Forza Motorsport community, and we can't wait to see how players put it through the paces on the track."
