Double Formula One World Champion Emmerson Fittipaldi and Italian design house Pininfarina have finally revealed the new Fittipaldi EF7 Vision Gran Turismo by Pininfarina at the Geneva Motor Show. The car, a brainchild of Brazilian racing legend Emmerson Fittipaldi, will be a small production supercar aimed to provide the exhilaration of driving a thoroughbred racing vehicle whist offering all the safety of modern road driving. Fittipaldi himself will be on hand to offer driving tuition for those lucky enough to own one of these exotic vehicles, and those without unlimited funds will be able to sample the machine themselves as it will be making a virtual appearance in the upcoming PlayStation 4 racing game Gran Turismo Sport. “I have tried for years to explain to others what it truly feels like to be behind the steering wheel of a championship racecar. There is adrenaline and elation all rolled into an awe-inspiring inner fulfillment that leaves you craving for more. This is what our dream team created in the EF7 Vision Gran Turismo by Pininfarina” said Emerson Fittipaldi at Geneva International Motor Show. The car has been designed and build as a join effort between the Fittipaldi Motors team, Pininfarina and racing constructors HWA. No detailed technical specifications are available at present, however it is known that the road car will feature a carbon fibre monocoque and body, bringing the car in at an incredibly lightweight 1000kgs. Bolted on to the Pininfarina designed machine will be a Fittipaldi designed V8 normally aspirated engine capable of producing over 600hp, coupled together with a bespoke gearbox to ensure "seamless" integration. “Owner-drivers can expect reliability, lower maintenance cost and minimal mechanic and tech teams - which means more time and elation on the track,” added Fittipaldi. As part of the reveal video of the new car we can already see the EF7 on track in the yet to be released Gran Turismo Sport game, so it looks like the virtual equivalent is at least running and working as it should prior to full release: Much like the real car, no release details have been made available for GT Sport of the EF7, however Fittipaldi has confirmed production will run to a limited 39 examples of the supercar, which is considerably less that the number expected to ship when GT Sport launches hopefully at some stage this year.... Gran Turismo Sport is due to release on PlayStation 4 during 2017. No exact release date has been revealed as yet.
