Make the Fortnite Island your racetrack with the new Ferrari 296 GTB vehicle.
Epic Games doesn’t miss when it comes to big name collaborations. We’ve seen cosmetics styled after major sports teams, a Fortnite x Batman comic book series, and even a full season dedicated to Marvel.
This one feels extra special though. Italian luxury car manufacturer Ferrari is famous for being particularly picky when it comes to choosing which brands to work with.
To celebrate the upcoming release of their new Ferrari 296 GTB plug-in hybrid, a replica car is now available to use in Fortnite. Hop into Battle Royale mode to take it for a spin and see how it feels to be behind the wheel of a $320,000 speed machine.
The Ferrari replaces the Whiplash, which is potentially a good piece of marketing since everyone referred to them as “Lambos”. It’s faster too, thanks to an extra supply of boost.
Look the part
Additionally, a new collection of Ferrari-themed skins and gear has arrived in the Fortnite Item Shop. You can either buy these separately or as a bundle at the following prices:
Ferrari Bundle (Modena Icon Outfit, Maranello Racer Outfit & Ferrari Turbo Back Bling): 1,400 V-Bucks
Modena Icon Outfit: 800 V-Bucks
Maranello Racer Outfit: 800 V-Bucks
Ferrari Turbo Back Bling: 400 V-Bucks
The fact that Epic is still attracting huge companies like this for crossovers is a great sign going forward and they’ve done a beautiful job recreating the car. Time to jump off the Battle Bus and put the peddle to the floor!
