Fittipaldi EF7 meets Pininfarina styling, legendary racer
The great racing driver, Emerson Fittipaldi has teamed up with the Italian design firm Pininfarina, and German engineering company HWA to create a new supercar. Fittipaldi Motors has released teaser photos of their supercar named, the Fittipaldi EF7 Vision Gran Turismo Concept.
"What was important to me in creating the EF7 is that the car not only provides pure passion and adrenaline, but will also be forgiving and safe for drivers of all skill levels," said Emerson Fittipladi. As such the Fittipaldi EF7 is built with a carbon fiber monocoque and body making it not only lightweight (curb weight around 1000kg) but also safe.
Powering the EF7 Vision Gran Turismo is a naturally aspirated V8 which is set to deliver 600 horsepower. The engine and gearbox are said to be Fittipaldi single-manufacture made and seamlessly integrated, while their low design and position on the car creates a unique center of gravity.
Something peculiar to note is the Vision Gran Turismo name as well. This means that the car will also be featured in the Sony PlayStation game Gran Turismo. Despite Vision Gran Turismo cars usually being just concepts for shows, Fittipaldi intends to get the EF7 into public hands.
The Fittipaldi EF7 Vision Gran Turismo is set to be unveiled at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show this March.
