Behind The Scenes With Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Models

The Run is an underground cross-country race with a fat purse at the finish line. Everyone wants the winnings for themselves and drivers Mila Belova and Nikki Blake are no different. Based on Sports Illustrated Swimsuit models Irina Shayk (Mila) and Christine Teigen (Nikki), these ladies are willing to use all their assets to come out on top.

In a new behind the scenes video, Irina and Christine talk about getting in to the driver's seat for this season’s hottest racing game, Need For Speed The Run. Unlike modeling for Sports Illustrated, modeling for Need For Speed The Run requires more covering up than showing skin. To accomplish the game's lifelike motion capture, these lovely ladies had to don Lycra body suits festooned with sophisticated sensors. Check out the interview and see segments from the making of Need For Speed The Run with Irina and Christine below.

To see more of Irina's and Christine's work on Need for Speed The Run, be sure to check out Electronic Arts' and Sports Illustrated's "The Making of Need for Speed the Run" DVD. Sports Illustrated subscribers will receive an exclusive offer for the Need for Speed The Run value bundle — which includes the game and The Making of DVD — for just $49.95.

Need for Speed The Run will be released on November 15thPre-order your copy today on Origin and get ready to race for your life.
