iRacing Partners with Ferrari – 488 GTE coming
iRacing announced that they have reached a partnership with the Italian sports car manufacturer Ferrari. The first product to hit the virtual track will be the Ferrari 488 GTE model as it was raced in the ACO 2016 Le Mans 24 Hours, the FIA World Endurance Championship and the IMSA Weathertech SportsCar Championship.
This is a landmark moment for iRacing and online racing, says Steve Myers, Executive Vice President and Executive Producer for iRacing.com. “Ferrari is synonymous with world championship caliber race cars and high-performance automobiles.
The Prancing Horse logo famously inspires passion among racing and automotive aficionados everywhere. iRacers are also passionate about online racing and I have no doubt they will be thrilled at the prospects of racing the 488 GTE and other Ferraris in the future.
The 2016 Ferarri 488 GTE is the successor of the Ferrari 458 GTE wich is probably the Italian Prancing Horse brand’s most successful race car to date. The Ferrari 488 GTE is powered by a race-prepped F 154CB 3.9-liter Twin GDI-turbocharged V8 engine. The engine puts out 490 horses which are transferred to the rear wheels by a Transversal 6 speed sequential gearbox.
