We know about real-life cars being cars being rendered into the virtual world, but Honda and Turn 10 Studios are going against the grain a little. Instead of the usual process, the two companies have teamed up to bring a virtual Honda Civic SI from Forza 5 into the real world.
The car will be developed as part of the Forza Motorsport Civic Si Design Contest, a competition Honda and Turn 10 Studios created to let designers attempt to design the best Civic SI. The competition was eventually won by Tiffany Labedz.
We don’t know who she is exactly, but still, congratulations on a job well done, madam!
As far as her design goes, Honda refused to release on the unique Civic SI, opting only to say that it beat out more than 170 other entries on its way to being chosen by the two companies. The special edition Civic SI is scheduled to be introduced at the Chicago Auto Show on February 7th as a one-off, which means that it could end up being one of the most sought after Honda Civics in recent history.
Also, FYI, the image above isn’t the competition-winning Civic SI designed by Labedz.
