Things you can do in the Windy City this weekend

The weather forecast says the high in Chicago will surge all the way up to 12F today, with a warming trend into the upper teens over the weekend. That leaves plenty of options for the fine residents of the Windy City. Here are a few of those options:
  1. Break out the snowblower and tackle the driveway. Again.
  2. Step outside, take a big gulp of air, and shatter into a trillion pieces
  3. Finish up that sleeve of frostbite
  4. Or, you can go to the Chicago Auto Show (which opens to the public tomorrow) and see Acura's TLX Concept in the Acura display, and over in the Honda booth you can check out the winning design of Honda's Forza Custom 2014 Civic Si design contest.

If we lived in Chicago, we'd definitely go for option #4, and you probably should too.

It's too bad we don't have an XBox One or Forza 5, otherwise we'd test drive this sweet looking new "Honda Legends Car Pack".

Press release for the Forza Civic Si follows.






Honda Wows Windy City with Real-Life Custom Forza Civic Si Coupe

02/07/2014 - TORRANCE, Calif.
  • Winning entry from the Forza Motorsport Civic Si Design Contest brought from the virtual world to the real world at Chicago Auto Show
    One-of-a-kind Civic Si Coupe is the first vehicle to feature a design from the Forza Motorsport community
  • New Honda Legends Car Pack with 2014 Civic Si now available for Forza Motorsport 5 on Xbox One
Honda teamed up with Forza Motorsport, the world's hottest racing game franchise, to unveil the winning entry of the Forza Motorsport Civic Si Design Contest at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show. Selected from nearly 170 entries, the winning 2014 Civic Si Coupe design was created by Forza gamer Tiffany Labedz of Phoenix, Arizona and was selected as the top design by more than 17,000 members of the Xbox Forza community. This one-of-a-kind Civic is among the first vehicles from the Forza Motorsport community to be brought from virtual world to the real world.

"At Honda, we love meeting our customers where their passion lies, and the racing and custom car design in Forza Motorsport is definitely a passion for so many Honda and Civic enthusiasts," said Tom Peyton, assistant vice president of advertising with American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "Taking an immersive gaming experience like Forza and bringing it to life here at the Chicago Auto Show will make for an exciting exhibition and a real-life demonstration of how cars and gaming are increasingly intertwined."

In addition to the custom Civic on display, Chicago Auto Show attendees can be among the first to play the new Honda Legends Car Pack for Forza Motorsport 5 on Xbox One. The new car pack features the redesigned 2014 Civic Si Coupe, the 1984 Mugen CRX and the 1994 Prelude, all available for download on Xbox One. This is the second straight year that Honda and Forza Motorsport have teamed up to bring gamers exclusive Honda-branded content.

"The passion and creativity of Forza Motorsport fans is a continuous source of inspiration to us," said Alan Hartman, studio manager for Turn 10 Studios, the makers of the Forza Motorsport series. "Seeing cars like the design contest-winning Honda Civic come to life on stage at the Chicago Auto Show is a testament to the power of the Forza Motorsport franchise to fuel creative expression among car lovers and videogame fans."
