You can now race the CUPRA Tavascan XE in Forza Horizon 5

SEAT brought previous cars to computer games such as Project Gotham Racing, this time CUPRA have done it with Forza 5.

Fans will be able to test their skill and all-electric off-road race craft in a CUPRA Tavascan XE, just like ABT CUPRA XE team drivers Nasser Al-Attiyah and Jutta Kleinschmidt, in the latest version of Forza Horizon 5 game.

The Forza racing franchise is the official gaming partner of Extreme E, and it has created the most authentic and comprehensive Horizon race game yet – with a fully-liveried CUPRA Tavascan XE one of the vehicles to race on an Xbox console.

Forza Horizon 5 will allow a new audience to experience what the all-terrain electric CUPRA Tavascan XE is capable of and showcase both CUPRA and Extreme E in a new light.

Players will be able to compete on new events and challenges to unlock unique variants which will help them progress, as well as acquire Extreme E collectables.

“The virtual world is a rapidly growing space where brands can host exciting events and experiences for individuals to share and which were previously inaccessible to only the very few, like Nasser Al-Attiyah and Jutta Kleinschmidt racing a CUPRA Tavascan XE in Extreme E X Prix races for example,

“But now we can all share these experiences and go beyond what the automotive industry has ever been able to offer before.

“The collaboration between Extreme E and the Forza Horizon 5 game allows our fans to immerse themselves into the innovative all-electric culture of CUPRA and to put themselves at the forefront of what we have always done – tackle the world’s most extreme motorsport events with all our heart and passion.

“CUPRA is emotion. It’s a performance-led living brand giving experiences beyond the automotive world – and this is one more step where the virtual world and the real world are mixed and where all the adrenaline and excitement from our participation in Extreme E can be experience not by a few, but by everyone!”

Antonino Labate, Global Director of Strategy, Business Development & Operations at CUPRA.

Forza Horizon 5 is available on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Windows 10, Steam, Xbox Game Pass and via Xbox Cloud Gaming.

I'm pretty sure most of the SEAT fans won't get hyped until we see Leon Cupra 300 or R in the game. :(
