Vision Gran Turismo is a project in which the world’s leading automotive brands design new sports cars for Gran Turismo players.
During today’s World Finals event of the Gran Turismo World Series 2022 Nations Cup Grand Final in Monaco, the Italian prancing horse brand revealed its Ferrari Vision Gran Turismo. The honors of the reveal were taken care of by the Senior Vice President of Design at Ferrari, Flavio Manzoni, and the creator of the Gran Turismo franchise Kazunori Yamauchi.
On December 15, the car will become available in-game for all the players that manage to complete the Gran Turismo World Finals Viewer Campaign and will be available via GT7’s Brand Central on December 23. Also, a full-size scale model will be displayed at the Ferrari Museum in Maranello until March 2023.
The Ferrari Vision Gran Turismo is the first Ferrari single-seater concept car dedicated to the world of virtual motor sport, with a spectacular and futuristic design founded Ferrari’s unequaled racing heritage. The Ferrari Vision Gran Turismo draws its inspiration from the fascinating world of Ferrari’s hugely successful 1960s and ‘70s sports prototypes. Below hyper-modern bodywork and dramatic proportions, the car hides the DNA of masterpieces such as the Ferrari 330 P3 and the 512 S. It is a nod to the past, yet a powerful hint of the future of endurance racing.
The Ferrari Vision Gran Turismo’s architecture is crafted around an advanced aerodynamic design and is equipped with the same engine architecture that powers the Ferrari 499P. Here, though, the engine has been made more extreme to develop no less than 1,030 CV (1,016 BHP) at 9,000 rpm, with an additional 240 kW (321.5 BHP) available through three electric motors, one on the rear axle and one on each of the front wheels.
