Imagine if you could combine some Top Gear-style challenges with an epic supercar road trip like the Gumball 3000, and then you sprinkled it all with a little bit of Forza magic and a dash of Tanner Foust. This event is the Forza Fuel Challenge, and it is here to celebrate the coming launch of the new Forza Horizon 2 video game on September 30th.

The teams consist of a pair of journalists and famous YouTube content creators. There is one of each piled into eight supercars that include the likes of the Audi R8, and the Lamborghini Aventador, and the new Lamborghini Huracán leads the whole convoy. As you may know the Huracán is the new halo car for the Forza Horizon 2 game, and it represents the first time you can drive this new supercar in any video game.

The teams are currently bombing around southern Europe, and when they reach designated points on the route, they get to compete in several challenges. Whoever wins the most challenges in the end will win. The first round happened two days ago at Bologna, Spain and the challenge was called “Get To The Choppa.” The teams raced against a helicopter through a slalom course on an airfield.

You can watch the video after the break to see what this whole mess is about and watch the first challenge unfold. The second challenge happened yesterday, so we should have more videos of this exciting road trip soon.

Hit that jump, watch that video, and don’t forget to keep it locked here on TopSpeed.com to see the other videos in the series, as well as more Forza Horizon 2 news including a full review that is coming soon.

The Lamborghini Huracan is the newest mid-engined supercar to come from the halls of Lamborghini. It is the replacement for their record-setting Gallardo, and it follows the same successful recipe. There is a mighty, V-10 engine that sits right behind the front seats that is pumping out more than 600 horsepower, and an AWD system to get all that power to the ground as quickly as possible.

The Huracan shares a similar engine to its predecessor, but in the looks department the new car is much more angular and aggressive. It takes plenty of cues from the Aventador.

If you want to experience the fury, noise and speed that comes with a real Italian supercar, the Huracan is an excellent candidate.
