Jeremy Clarkson has once again parlayed his immense popularity in the ranks of the auto industry with another fantastic gig to notch under his belt. Already famous for being the front man in the hit show, Top Gear, Clarkson is reaping the rewards of the BBC’s partnership with Forza Motorsport by being tapped to be the official narrator of the fourth installment of the popular racing game franchise.
Turn 10 Studios, they developed Forza 4, understands the potential windfall of having Clarkson involved in their game. “His opinions cause millions of fans to guffaw and thousands of car engineers to quiver in their wingtips," the company said in a statement. "And now Jeremy Clarkson is bringing his trademark insight and wit to Forza Motorsport 4.”
Clarkson’s sharp wit and off-the-cuff observations should be a refreshing change of pace for Forza 4 as he offers his trademark commentary to some of the world’s most exotic machines. The Top Gear host will be the voice of a new feature in the game called Autovista, which allows gamers to be able to go inside a virtual car showroom and inspect every nook and cranny of the car with the Kinect controller.
Every time somebody opens a door or looks under the hood, Clarkson will be there to give you all the insights you’re going to need to know more about the car you’re inspecting.
If we haven’t had enough of Clarkson’s quips on Top Gear, we now get another opportunity to listen to the wisecracking Brit as he invades our Xbox 360 consoles.
