Virtual concept cars are all the rage these days. We’ve seen fully digital Vision Gran Turismo designs from the likes of Jaguar, McLaren, Audi, and more. Now, Ferrari is finally stepping up with a Vision Gran Turismo of its own.

Titled simply the Ferrari Vision Gran Turismo, the fully virtual concept car is a center-positioned single-seater race car designed specifically to appear in PlayStation’s series of Gran Turismo video games. Ferrari says it uses an even more potent version of the twin-turbo V-6 powering the company’s newest Le Mans competitor, the 499P, along with three electric motors, one for the rear axle and two for each front wheels. Thanks to a lack of real-world sporting regulations, total output is an incredible 1336 hp. And that’s not all. From the release:

The bodyshell of the Ferrari Vision Gran Turismo appears as if suspended over the flat, carbon-fiber underbody which incorporates all the car’s technical components, thus giving purity to the shape. The chassis is designed to emphasize the car’s lateral dynamics in on-the-limit handling. The powertrain layout guarantees an optimal front-rear weight balance and an extremely low center of gravity to the benefit of the AWD. The elasto-kinematic suspension setup was developed around the performance characteristics of the tires used in Gran Turismo together with the car’s aerodynamic balance, the aim being to guarantee superlative performance on both torturously winding city circuits and traditional endurance race tracks.

According to Ferrari, it’s used its experience in Formula 1 to ensure the battery for the electric motors is always in a full state of charge, whether you’re setting an ultra-fast qualifying lap or doing a handful of consecutive laps at once.

The Ferrari Vision Gran Turismo will become available to all users starting on December 23, 2022. One Gran Turismo user will have the chance to drive the car one week early, however, as all GT7 players will be able to participate in a “viewers’ campaign quiz for a chance to be gifted the car in-game on December 15. On that same date, Ferrari will reveal a full-size replica of the Vision Gran Turismo, to be displayed at the Ferrari Museum in Maranello through March 2023.
