Elisabeth Behrmann Bloomberg Published 7:10 PM EST Nov 25, 2018 Tesla Inc., kicking off a roving campaign across Europe to show off the Model 3, is keeping U.K. buyers waiting, for now at least. Starting earlier this month in Paris, Barcelona and other cities, the carmaker is putting the model on display at urban locations for a 32-city tour that leaves out the U.K., where vehicles drive on the left and require a steering wheel on the right. Until now, interested buyers across the Atlantic could only catch a glimpse at select auto shows.

Playground Games really were on to a winner when they first came up with the idea of the Forza Horizon franchise of video games. Released in 2012, Forza Horizon was essentially a spin-off series of the Forza Motorsport games; intended to be an open-world street racing counterpart to the pure motorsport and circuit racing found in the original series developed by Turn 10 Studios. The premise of every Horizon game has remained consistent throughout every release. The game centres around a racing festival held on public roads at various locations across the globe. The series has so far travelled from Colorado in the United States, to the border of Northern France and Southern Italy and then all the way to Australia’s city of Surfers Paradise and it’s surrounding areas.
