Forza 5 trailer recreates the experience of driving an Audi supercar

A new behind-the-scenes video for Forza Motorsport 5 takes the camera to the annual 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race and looks at the Audi team and its hybrid electric supercar, the Audi R18 e-tron quattro.

The video highlights interviews with members of the Audi driving team who in 2012 took turns driving their R18 quattro to victory and discusses things like the car's design and its hybrid control systems, as well as what it feels like to take corners and straights in a vehicle going so incredibly fast.

Also interviewed is Forza Motorspot 5 creative director Dan Greenawalt, who discusses what he admires about the Audi R18 and compares the teamwork critical to winning an endurance race like Le Mans with the teamwork critical to make a good video game.

Forza Motorsport 5 will launch with the Xbox One on Nov. 22.
