"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 Fittipaldi from Monaco where he is attending the Laureus Sports Awards.

As such, the EF7 will be super lightweight (around 1000kgs), meaning that speed in the straightway and nibble and quickness to enter & exit corners will be extraordinary while safety standards, enhanced by the strength of carbon fiber, are of the highest possible consideration.

Fittipaldi also revealed that the powerful V8 normal aspirated engine, with over 600 hp, will give a powerful but progressive acceleration. Both engine and gearbox are "Fittipaldi" single manufacturer-made and seamlessly integrated, while their low design and position on the car creates a unique center of gravity.

"Owner-drivers can expect reliability, lower maintenance cost and minimal mechanic and tech teams - which means more time and elation on the track," added Fittipaldi.

The limited edition EF7 track car is being developed in collaboration with Pininfarina and HWA, and will also be available in the Gran Turismo series, the Sony PlayStation racing franchise.

The Fittipaldi EF7 Vision Gran Turismo by Pininfarina will be presented on March 7th 2017 at the Geneva International Motor Show on the Pininfarina stand.
