ATLANTA, GA., September 26, 2017--SCUF Gaming, the innovator and creator of high performance game controllers, has teamed up with Porsche and Turn 10 Studios to design the limited edition SCUF FORZA ELITE controller in celebration of the October release of Forza Motorsport 7.

Inspired by the Porsche 911 GT2 RS, the cover car for Forza Motorsport 7, the SCUF FORZA ELITE’s front design is custom-crafted with an exclusive silver finish, red and black racing stripes, black carbon fiber accents, and the Forza logo. The luxurious controller handles are made of the same hand-stitched Alcantara leather found in the 911 Porsches.

“The SCUF FORZA ELITE features fine attention to detail, hand-built at our facilities in Atlanta where it is geared and tested for performance,” said Duncan Ironmonger, CEO and Co-Founder of SCUF Gaming. “In 2011, we challenged how controllers were built, creating a new market for high performance controllers by adding features to increase hand use and improve gameplay. This new limited edition controller continues that tradition. It’s a tribute to fans of Forza, Porsche, and SCUF. It could not have become a reality without these three premium brands coming together.”

This limited edition controller includes SCUF’s signature paddles, hair triggers, and other key functionality used by over 90% of professional gamers. The controller features the iconic Porsche Crest in a vivid color set and high quality metal fabrication SCUF paddles which transcend the back of the controller for optimal reach and use. Similar to racing car tires, SCUF ELITE premium thumbsticks offer gamers superior grip and comfort to achieve optimal driving performance in Forza Motorsport 7. A range of thumbsticks heights are included and can be customized to the gamer’s preference. Additional features include red volcano rings, SCUF Pro Grip handles, a custom case, certificate of authenticity, and replacement controller parts.

“In 2015, we worked with Microsoft to help bring our innovative, patented products to more gamers and consumers,” continued Ironmonger. “We are excited to continue working with Microsoft ahead of one of the most anticipated Xbox game launches this year.”

As part of SCUF’s licensing deal with Microsoft to become the exclusive 3rd party accessories partner for the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller and through the partnership with Porsche, the limited edition SCUF FORZA ELITE controller is available for purchase in two options:
