Autoblog livery for Forza Motorsport 3 – Click above for high-res image gallery

This. Is. Awesome. Autoblog reader Jason L. over at Second Method Graphic Design has been so kind as to share a couple of skins he's devised for both the Cadillac CTS-V Coupe and the McLaren MP4-12C in Forza Motorsports 3. Why do we care? Because these particular wraps are a tribute to a certain blog that obsessively covers the auto industry. Call us vain, but there's something cool about seeing our logo slathered all down the sides of two very lust worthy pieces of metal, even if they only live in the virtual realm.

Maybe we should talk to Cadillac about getting into a long-term tester with a similar theme. Something tells us that McLaren would be somewhat less receptive. Leder says that you can purchase either of the two designs through his Forza storefront for a nominal fee. The guy also has a slew of other very attractive liveries in case you don't feel like sporting your AB pride on your fenders. It's fine, we won't be offended. In fact, might we suggest The Simpsons-inspired Datsun 510 in Mr. Sparkle livery or the Ikea Saab 9-3?

      So far in Forza 3 I've painted one car. I changed a Porsche GT3 from blue to lime green. That's about the limit of my expertise in graphic design. I wish I knew how to do things like this.

      I was going to go way out on a limb and put stripes on a Camaro but I panicked and quit before I ruined something. lol.

        no offence, but are you ok? just wondering...
      • 4 Years Ago
      I really like what he did with the McLaren, nice and simple. He could have used the design lines from the CTS a bit better though. Now im tempted to go do some myself. Any chance this Jason guy put the logos up on his Forza store???

        Sure will man, thanks for the tip :)

        Actually, the Cadillac was designed that way since the cutline for the front bumper connects directly to the "point" of the rear taillights...but it would be great to see what other people can come up with! The Autoblog logo is also available separately in the storefront, so give it a try!

      Very nice! Hey when will you guys get your own car pack like the Jalops and Autoweek crew?
      • 4 Years Ago
      Darn it Jason, you beat me to the punch, lol.

      I have been working on an AutoBlog livery for a CL63 for a few days with similar colors.

      Very nice work!

      I knew the MP4-12C would look fantastic with a blacked-out roof panel.

      Very nice job, Jason L.

        Turn10,

        I'm still waiting for my 2011 Mustang GT 5.0!

        (or 2010 Mustang GT)

        You have until the end of the year....or else I sell Forza Motorsport 3...and buy Gran Turismo 5!

        @Erukian Touché! You're right, of course, but surely there must be better things to report on than some bedroom-addict's blog-post-seeking wet dream.

        No?

      Let's hope they're more reliable than AB's posting engine.

      AWESOME!

      To think about it, maybe Autoblog should make some merchandises...
