You Can Test Drive a New Ferrari… in Fortnite | IGN

Epic Games has partnered with Ferrari to bring its legendary Italian sports car to Fortnite.

The collaboration was unveiled in a blog post from the Fortnite team, announcing the Ferrari 296 GTB as a brand new addition to the hugely popular battle royale game. The vehicle officially became drivable on the island today, July 22, with players challenged to a series of Epic Quests to put their driving skills to the test.

Given that the real car retails for the low, low price of $321,400, this is absolutely the cheapest way to give it a go.

“The new Ferrari 296 GTB has been designed to enhance Fun to Drive,” the car manufacturer said in a tweet encouraging players to get behind the wheel of the new Ferrari 296 GTB and take it for a spin around the Fortnite map, completing some special assignments along the way, such as time trials, speed challenges, and weather-related tests.

In addition to the sleek new vehicle, there’s a workshop full of Ferrari-inspired cosmetics available to purchase in the item shop. The Ferrari Bundle includes the Modena Icon and Maranello Racer Outfits, as well as the Ferrari Turbo Back Bling. They can all be bought together for a total of 1,400 V-Bucks.

Crossovers are nothing new to Fortnite. The game has had everything from Marvel’s Avengers, John Wick, all 32 NFL teams, and Nike Air Jordans brought into its universe. However, up until now, it’s only ever featured generic representations of different types of cars, making this the first officially licensed vehicle to hit the map.
