American firm to unveil a new performance car at Gamescom video games show, which will appear in ‘a forthcoming racing game’

Ford is set to unveil a new performance car later this month, although in perhaps an unconventional manner.

The manufacturer didn’t delve much into details about the car itself in a recent release, but all will be revealed at Gamescom — Europe’s largest video game convention, taking place on August 21-25 in Cologne, Germany.

What is has confirmed is that this new vehicle will “bring the fun back to on- and off-road driving”, meaning this is sadly unlikely to be a Fiesta RS.


But why? Well, the new performance machine will be appearing in “a forthcoming racing game”. Which one that is hasn’t been officially confirmed, but it’s safe to speculate it will be Microsoft’s Forza Horizon 4, which is set to release on October 2.

Ford has a history of working with Microsoft, with the firm’s cars appearing in every rendition of Forza since the original launched in 2005. It also revealed the current Ford GT alongside the announcement of Forza Motorsport 6 back in 2016, with the supercar taking the cover spot for the game, while its America-only F-150 Raptor was one of the faces of 2017’s Forza Horizon 3.

The American manufacturer will have its own stand at Gamescom, where visitors will be able to get behind the wheel of a 4D racing simulator, that “offers the nearest-to-real experience imaginable for driving a performance vehicle”.
