Two posts about cars today. That’s unusual. The first was about ‘Sailor Moon’ and ‘DBZ’ Ford Fusion commercials. This is about a Final Fantasy XV Audi R8 that you can actually buy in Japan. While the marketing approach between the two companies is on the same wavelength, there are some “subtle” differences from my perspective:
- There are many Ford Fusions, but there is only one Final Fantasy XV Audi R8 with a V10 plus engine.
- I can afford a Ford Fusion, but I don’t want one.
- I want a Final Fantasy XV Audi R8, but I don’t have $470,000 just lying around.
Still, some lucky bastard is going to walk away with a real-life version of “The Audi R8 Star of Lucis” when it goes on sale as part of Final Fantasy XV’s launch. Because there is only one, Audi Japan is holding a raffle where the winner is given the exclusive right to purchase the car. Interested parties can enter starting on November 21 at 10:00am in Japan. Check out more pics and a video of this gorgeous beast below.
