Fasten your seatbelts: Argos to offer free supercar taxi service to celebrate the launch of Forza Horizon 4

Petrolheads, rejoice. Argos is offering its customers the chance to get a free ride home in a supercar when they pre-order a copy of the highly-anticipated Xbox One release, Forza Horizon 4, which launches on Tuesday 2nd October.

On launch day, a limited number of customers that have pre-ordered the game with Argos will be chauffeured around London in the supercar of their choice.

Taking inspiration from the game, options include models from the best of British automobile brands, McLaren and Aston Martin. For those that prefer a flashier way to get around town, a Lamborghini Aventador, Ferrari 488 and Porsche 911 GT3 RS are also available to book.

To secure a ride, customers simply need to book online via Billetto. Here customers can select their desired  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

Pickup location: Sainsbury’s Argos, 62 Wandsworth Road, London, SW8 2LF

To ensure everyone has a fair chance to secure a supercar ride, bookings will be released in waves. For those that were not able to book a ride in advance, there will be some availability on the day.

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.”
