That’s right, a Ferrari completely free of charge — actually, you have three to choose from — but you’d better act fast. And along with your no-cost Ferrari, you’ll get the opportunity to drive it on the famed Mugello Circuit, near Florence, Italy. You don’t believe me, do you? Well, Ferrari IS giving away cars today … virtual cars, to be exact.
Ferrari.com is offering (free of charge) the Ferrari Virtual Race simulator. It’s a racing simulator that allows PC users to take a few of the company’s latest models out for some hot laps around a well-known Grand Prix circuit. Three cars are ready to race: the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, 612 Scaglietti and the 430 Scuderia. You can also build and customize your own California, F430 or F430 Spider — but you’ll have to wait until those cars have been released before you can get behind the wheel for a little full-throttle fun.
According to Ferrari, getting started is an easy four-step process:
- Download the Ferrari Virtual Race to your PC
- Configure your ideal car at the Atelier
- Save your bespoke car in My Ferrari
- Export your dream car from My Ferrari to the Ferrari Virtual Race
There’s good news for competitive gamers, too. Ferrari is promising an online version of the game that will allow players from all over the world to compete and show off their driving skills — and to collect “exclusive prizes” while doing so.
Exclusive prizes from Ferrari? Awesome. Guess you’d better start practicing…
