Lamborghini was a cancelled racing video game that was developed by Rage Software and would have been published by Majesco Entertainment.

A playable demo of the game was included in German/UK issues of the Official Xbox Magazine. The main reason for the cancellation was Rage Software's bankruptcy in January 2003.[1] The game's assets were eventually sold and reused for the racing game Juiced, developed by Juice Games (which was founded by ex-Rage Software employees).[2][3]

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

As the title implies, the game would have exclusively featured Lamborghini cars, such as the Countach and the Murciélago. The tracks seem to revolve around urban environments in real locations. It would also have included a wide variety of game modes.

Availability[edit | edit source]

On May 14th, 2022, on the Obscure Gamers forums, user FROZN announced that they were able to track down an anonymous play tester for Lamborghini, who still had a debug disc for the Xbox version of the game.[4] They later uploaded the build to Archive.org.[5]
