Need For Speed combines SI swimsuit models and video games

Need For Speed and Sports Illustrated have paired up to melt the minds of our nation's amorous and adrenaline-addicted young men. Need For Speed: The Run will feature a number of notable characters, including a pair of ladies based on genuine Sports Illustrated swimsuit models. Irina Shayk and Chrissy Teigen have lent their computer-generated effigies to the latest chapter in the Need For Speed saga. Shayk will play a rough-and-tumble girl who grew up in her father's mechanic shop while Teigen's character is cast as a wealthy, adrenaline-seeking party girl.

Shakespeare, it is not.

As Shayk so aptly puts it, the game is like stepping into a Michael Bay film. We'll reserve any retching until we actually get our hands on the game for a spell. In any case, the premise pits racers against one another in an illegal cross-country race from San Francisco to New York. High-speed shenanigans ensue, the law arrives and everyone has a good old fashioned dirty time. Hit the jump to check out the teaser trailer as well as a quick making-of video.
