Lamborghini, founded in 1963 and headquartered in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy, was recently brought under full ownership of the Audi AG group and is widely considered to have produced some of the world’s best super cars, including the 350 GT, Miura, Countach and Diablo.
Lamborghini also introduced its first new car in eleven years this year - the Murciélago – and the car has already established three International Automobile Federation (“FIA”) speed records, including completing 100 miles in 30 minutes at an average speed of over 200mph. The Murciélago has also received numerous press and trade awards throughout the motor industry since its introduction.
The Lamborghini titles currently under development by Rage will be the only videogames to feature the entire range of Lamborghini cars past and present and the title has been developed with help and assistance from Lamborghini’s chief designers and technicians.
The game will allow the player to join the ‘Lamborghini Millionaires Club’, founded by high-rolling millionaires with a passion for speed, risk and Lamborghini, and race in a series of leagues set in exotic locations around the world. Members can indulge in high stakes challenges to build up the ultimate collection of Lamborghini vehicles and can also obtain rare and collectable vehicles by entering special ‘pink slip challenges’ where large sums of money and cars may be won and lost.
As well as several single and multi-player gaming modes, Lamborghini will also be Rage’s first broadband capable racing game designed for Xbox™ Live, the multiplayer functionality of the Xbox video game console from Microsoft, and the game will allow players to take their collection of cars online and compete with other drivers around the world.
