For those who are car fans and own an Xbox or Xbox 360 there can be little doubt that they’ve heard of the Forza Motorsport series. The original Forza Motorsports game was released in mid-2005 as a sort of Microsoft Xbox answer to the highly successful, highly acclaimed Sony Playstation racing series Gran Turismo. Well, Forza managed to answer the challenge of Gran Turismo by providing damage modeling, a wide array of cars and competitive series and tracks while allowing the player to both decorate their car by any means they saw fit as well as set up and buy upgrades for their vehicles. Coupled with the Xbox Live system, players could also download new paint schemes and vehicles to outfit their garage for both the singleplayer and multiplayer modes.
After a successful sequel to the original, Turn 10, the firm that developed the Forza Motorsports series, is bringing out the 3rd game of the series and featuring one of the hottest cars of 2009: the 5.2L Audi R8 V10. To celebrate the 3rd installment in the series as well as get fans excited for the release in October, Turn 10 has come up with an interesting contest allowing the fans to personally design the paint scheme for the R8 V10 similar to the design studio that is found within the game itself.
