UK-based retailer Argos is offering some lucky Forza Horizon 4 pre-order customers a free ride home in a supercar.

To coincide with Forza Horizon 4’s official launch date, Tuesday, October 2, a limited number of customers will be chauffeured around London “in the supercar of their choice”.

In keeping with Forza Horizon 4’s British setting, Argos will offer players a chance to ride in a McLaren 720s and Aston Martin DB11. That said, customers will also have the option of a Lamborghini Aventador, Ferrari 488, BMW i8, or Porsche 911 GT3 RS if they prefer.

To secure a ride, customers need to book online via Billetto and choose their car and time. Fans will be asked for a booking confirmation and proof of pre-order on the day. Pick-ups will take place outside the Sainsbury’s Argos store in Nine Elms, Battersea, London.

The following cars can be booked for a ride on launch day with 30-minute slots available between 9am-7pm:

2018 McLaren 720s
2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS
2013 Ferrari 488
2016 Lamborghini Aventador
2015 BMW i8
2017 Aston Martin DB11

James Cooke, Video Games Buying Manager at Argos, said:

“We wanted to celebrate the launch of the Xbox One exclusive Forza Horizon 4 in a way our customers would appreciate and remember. Forza has been one of our most popular gaming franchises since its launch and bringing the game to life by offering the ultimate super-car taxi service was the perfect way to reward our loyal customers. We anticipate Forza Horizon 4 to be a highly popular launch this year for both casual and hardcore gamers.”

Let us know which car you would pick, I’d stay on theme personally and opt for the DB 11. Also if you haven’t seen it yet, check out our interview with Ralph Fulton, Creative Director at Playground Games, developers of Forza Horizon 4.
