Gran Turismo 7 adds five fantastic new cars for the holidays, starting with Ferrari Vision Gran Turismo.
Ferrari Vision Gran Turismo
The Ferrari Vision Gran Turismo, the Prancing Horse’s first single-seater concept car for virtual motorsport, is stunning and futuristic. Ferrari’s iconic 1960s and 1970s sports-prototypes inspired the Ferrari Vision Gran Turismo. The Ferrari 330 P3 and 512 S are hidden beneath the car’s hyper-modern exterior and striking proportions. It evokes the past and foreshadows endurance racing’s future. The Ferrari Vision Gran Turismo has the same engine as the Ferrari 499P and is aerodynamically designed. However, the engine has been modified to produce 1,030 CV (1,015.8 BHP) at 9,000 rpm, with three electric motors—one on the back axle and one on each front wheel—adding 240 kW (321.5 BHP).
Alfa Romeo Giulia GTAm ’20
The 2020 Giulia GTA and GTAm commemorate Alfa Romeo’s 110th anniversary. These anniversary versions improve on the Quadrifoglio’s performance. The 2.9L V6 twin-turbo engine now produces 532 BHP. Lightweight construction components throughout the automobile have reduced weight by 100 kg and increased front and rear track width by 50 mm to shorten the effective wheelbase, improving handling. The car also has Sauber-developed aerodynamic elements, bigger front fenders, and rear fenders that arch over. Circuit-specific GTAm configuration. The roll-cage replaces the rear seats and adds a bigger front splitter and carbon fiber rear wing.
Bugatti Chiron ’16
Bugatti launched the Chiron hyper sports vehicle in 2016. This 500-unit Veyron follow-up was limited to manufacture. Large C-shaped air intakes surround the cabin. Its Type 57 Atlantic Coupe-inspired center-line improves straight-line stability. An 8L W16 quad-turbo engine powers the LMP1-like carbon fiber chassis. Since the Veyron, this engine has been adjusted to 1,479.3 BHP and 163.1 kgfm. A pre-production prototype reached 304.8 mph and accelerated from 0-62.1 mph in 2.5s. The 2018 Chiron Sport had an 18-kg-lighter chassis. In 2019, Bugatti introduced the limited edition “Chiron Sport 110 Ans Bugatti” to celebrate 110 years. 20 vehicles were constructed.
Chevrolet Corvette C8 Stingray ’20
In 2019, the Chevrolet Corvette, the all-American sports car, changed forever. The eight-generation Corvette was the first midship model. The exterior shows this radical alteration. With the cabin shifted forward, the body has a midship profile without the Chevrolet’s long nose. The front section now holds luggage, and behind the engine is a golf bag-sized luggage room. The car’s tiny block LT2 V8 engine was evolved from the C7’s LT1. It produces 495.1 BHP/65.0 kgfm with 6.2L displacement and fuel-saving cylinder deactivation. Only an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic is offered, although steering wheel paddle shifters provide manual control. All four corners have double wishbone suspension with a height adjustment system for high kerbs. A touchscreen controls the driver-centered infotainment system. The new Corvette has excelled in GT car racing with the engine bay repositioned to the rear of the cabin.
Toyota Celica GT-FOUR Rally Car (ST205) ’95
After winning the driver and maker championships with the ST185 in 1993, Toyota debuted the ST205 Celica in 1994 to win more. Due to its larger wheelbase and track, the new Celica featured improved weight distribution. From the start, TTE worked to increase aerodynamic and cooling performance. Due to undercarriage delays, the Celica debuted in trial races instead of the 1994 1000 Lakes Rally. The Celica challenged the Subaru Impreza in 1995’s Tour de Corse, and Didier Auriol won the 4th round. Toyota raced and improved throughout the season despite super strut suspension issues. The Celica lost all season points after violating the intake restrictor diameter rule in the 7th round at Catalonia. Toyota withdrew from the WRC and the ST205 only competed on the gala stage for one season. These machines’ heroic silhouette touched many fans despite their brief existence. It is a Toyota rally car.
