The Ferrari Vision GranTurismo also developed with recently patented aerodynamic engineering by using two side ducts that route the front airflow around the cockpit and over the sidepods. (Picture from: CarScoops)
In addition, Ferrari also developed this Vision Gran Turismo racing car with its newly ventilated wheel arches and recently patented aerodynamic engineering as well by using two side ducts that route the front airflow around the cockpit and over the sidepods. As for propulsion, Ferrari Centro Stile said it would install a mid-mounted 3.0-liter twin-turbo engine similar to that used to power the Ferrari 296 GTB/GTS as well as the Ferrari GT3 and Ferrari 499P racing cars.

Despite its hybrid powertrain producing some pretty impressive power figures, the Ferrari Vision Gran Turismo is surprisingly lightweight (only slightly heavier than the Mazda MX-5), with a dry weight of just 1,250 kilograms (2,756 lbs) distributed 43.5 percent front and 56.5 percent rear.
The Ferrari Vision GranTurismo is powered by a hybrid powerdrive consisting of a mid-mounted upgraded 3.0-liter twin-turbo engine coupled with 3 electric motors. (Picture from: CarScoops)
Reportedly, Ferrari has done some a kind of calculation with the result said that the Ferrari Vision Gran Turismo capable to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (100 kph) in less than two seconds, also from 0-124 mph (200 kph) in less than five seconds. On average, the racing cars built specifically for the Gran Turismo 7 can reach fantastic speeds of over 217 mph (350 kph). Even crazier, the famous Italian prancing horse brand has even released a hypothetical lap time around Ferrari's Fiorano Circuit, with a time of under 1 minute 10 seconds.

The prancing horse virtual racing car was officially introduced on November 28, 2022 at the Gran Turismo World Final in Monte Carlo, and will be officially join the Gran Turismo 7 starting on December 23, 2022. However, the fictional Ferrari Vision Gran Turismo racing car has previously been shown in the in-game quiz, and the winner will have early access to the racing car by getting a virtual key on December 15, 2022.
As usually happened, after making a virtual version, then the automaker wanted to build a full-scaled car model, then developed again until it can be drove on the streets or even produced in limited numbers. Meanwhile for the Ferrari Vision Gran Turismo, the Maranello automaker will be made it as a full scaled prototype model soon whose plan will be launched on December 23, 2022 at the Museo Ferrari in Maranello, and exhibited until March 2023 with another unique projects. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CARSCOOPS ]
