The EF7 Vision GranTurismo

Two-time Formula 1 world champion Emerson Fittipaldi has taken the covers of his newly constructed EF7 Vision Gran Turismo sportscar.

The car bearing the 1989 and 1993 Indianapolis 500 winner’s name has been designed by the famous Italian Pininfarina organisation.

Unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, EF7 engineered by German race car specialists HWA is powered by a 4.8 litre normally aspirated V8 engine, which produces 600 horsepower.

The EF7’s body and monocoque is constructed from carbon fibre with the entire car weighing in at approximately 1000 kilograms.

Customers will be offered an array of options to customise the car and will receive in-person, on-track instruction from the 1972 and 1974 F1 world champion.

The ‘Fittipaldi Racing Club’ will offer a ladder system by which drivers can graduate to higher levels of racing, plus exclusive events at tracks around the world.

The EF7 Vision Gran Turismo is also set to feature in the new Gran Truismo Sport Playstation video game released later this year.
