Microsoft’s Xbox hardware team has created a custom Xbox One Elite controller concept themed around the new Ford GT, the car that is now featured on the box for Forza Motorsport 6.

As you can see, the controller sports a “liquid blue” design, just like the car, but the influences in design go much further. In fact, the controller’s triggers have been designed to look like gas and break pedals.

Ford Motors is pretty happy with the design and had a lot to say about it:

“On the subtle side this concept features carbon fiber in parts of the case to add strength and lightness. Also the Ford GT steering wheel provided direction on the shape and ergonomic positioning of the invaluable left thumbstick as well as paddles for shifting that mimic the design of the Ford GT’s.”

The battery (Sorry, no EcoBoost here) housing has a clear design to represent the rear glass above the engine of the Ford GT. Last, but definitely not least the trigger buttons which act as your gas and brake pedals have been modified with the look of the GTs pedals. This is a design exercise that went to extraordinary lengths to be as true to the all-new Ford GT as possible and it does not disappoint.”

Ok now for the bad news. Fans probably won’t be able to buy this controller, however, as it’s described as a “one-off design exercise” on the part of the Xbox hardware team. Forza Motorsport 6 launched in September and did receive its own special Xbox One bundle themed around the Ford GT. However, there is no speculation, as of now, when and if this controller will make the scene for fans.
