“With the recent launch of the Formula 1 Esport Series and the growing popularity of this new discipline in the Paddock, the opportunity to increase our footprint in gaming and partner with Xbox on a custom console was an exciting challenge for us, especially knowing it would be released before the highly-anticipated Formula 1 United States Grand Prix,” said Cyril Abiteboul, Managing Director of Renault Formula One Team. “We have included design technologies that push the boundaries of manufacturing and we are proud of the result we have achieved. We can’t wait to congratulate the winner of this console.”

The console also incorporates a unique car component, the cog for second gear that driver Nico Hülkenberg used in the first six Grand Prix in the 2017 Formula One World Championship.
Forza Motorsport 7 is currently available as an Xbox Play Anywhere title (Xbox One and Windows 10 PC versions included with a single digital purchase at no additional cost) and is releasing on the Xbox One X on November 7 when players will be able to experience it in native 4K and HDR at 60fps.
