If you’re a fan of the hit British television series Top Gear, you’ve seen the show’s team of automobile experts drive everything from million-dollar sportscars to airport luggage trucks over the show’s long run. But there’s one famous vehicle they haven’t taken for a spin (not yet, at least): The Halo Warthog.
In a new teaser promoting the October release of Forza Motorsport 4, Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson gives you a bumper-to-bumper tour of the new Halo 4 version of the Warthog, which will make its debut in Forza 4. However, much like gamers who won’t be able to race the version of the Warthog that appears in Forza 4, Clarkson is quick to point out that he won’t be getting behind the wheel of the well-known Halo assault vehicle any time soon, either.
“The M12 Warthog, I’ve been told, is powered by something called a forward-housed, low-profile, liquid-cooled, hydrogen-injected, ICE-IC plant, coupled with an automatic, infinitely variable transmission,” reports Clarkson. “Yes, I don’t know what that means, either.”
While the connection between Halo and Forza 4 might seem like it came out of left field, the partnership between Top Gear and the popular racing franchise seems like a perfect fit. The team-up was announced way back in December 2010 when the first trailer for Forza Motorsport 4 debuted at the Spike TV Video Game Awards.
We’re big fans of the Top Gear team around here, so here’s hoping we get to see more of Clarkson and the rest of the show’s hosts in the upcoming game — and who knows, maybe they’ll make a cameo in Halo 4, too!
(Okay, probably not.)
