Forza 5 video from E3 2013, real life vs. in-game, can you tell a difference?

E3 2013 - Microsoft has just one of only two McLaren P1 hybrid supercars at its E3 2013 booth. While the car is absolutely beautiful, it's hard to tell it apart from the version found in Forza 5.

The good news is that Forza 5 will give many the chance to experience the McLaren P1. While not in person, it looks good enough that you'll feel like you've seen one in person. We don't want to know how much Microsoft had to pay to get the P1 in person...
