The Ferrari F2007 is a Race car produced by Ferrari. It appears in Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, Gran Turismo PSP, and Gran Turismo 5. As being featured on the Gran Turismo 6 car list, the F2007 did not appear in the release of the game, possibly due to licensing issues.

In the 2007 F1 season, the F2007 was driven by Brazilian driver Felipe Massa (#5) and Finnish driver Kimi Räikkönen (#6). Massa finished 4th in the Driver's Championship while Räikkönen went on the win the world championship. Additionally, Scuderia Ferrari also won the Constructor's Championship.

In-game descriptionEdit

This description is taken from the description page in GT5. It is transcluded from here.


The 2007 Formula 1 season introduced some interesting rule changes that made the competition among the drivers close than it had been in several years.

Ferrari adapted well to the new rules replacing its 248F1 race car the year before with the F2007, a truly revolutionary and innovative machine. In addition to regulations introduced in 2006 limiting engines to eight cylinders with a maximum of 2.4 liters of displacement, new rules in 2007 limited engine revs to 19,000 rpm.

To offset the limit in max revs, Ferrari engineers redesigned the engine's combustion chamber and intake/exhaust ports for maximum efficiency and flow, keeping peak horsepower at the highest level. Additionally, a new "seamless shift" feature introduced on the F2007 eliminated any drive loss during shifting.

Also, the F2007 saw great gains in aerodynamics, with downforce increased throughout the vehicle. It's said that the car had enough downforce to drive upside down (sticking to a ceiling) going at a relatively slow speed. The lower arms on the front suspension were redesigned, allowing for cleaner airflow at the front of the car, while a new, more compact, carbon-fiber 7-speed gearbox improved air flow at the rear.

Drivers for the 2007 season included Brazilian Felipe Massa and Finland's Kimi Raikkonen. In a closely-fought championship battle, Raikkonen took the title, scoring 110 championship points while the McLaren-Mercedes team of Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso tied for 2nd with 109 points each.

TriviaEdit

  • This car is the first licensed Formula One car in Gran Turismo series.
  • It's one of the fastest cars in Gran Turismo 5 Prologue and Gran Turismo 5, and it can easily overtake other cars due to its acceleration.
    • It is also the only Ferrari F1 car in Gran Turismo 5 to have an alternate color scheme.
      • Unfortunately, due to reasons as yet undisclosed by Polyphony Digital (most likely licensing issues), the Ferrari F2007 cannot be used in A-Spec or B-spec modes, and can only be used in one-make races.
  • In GT5, the Standard version of this car, importable from GTPSP, has a Martini logo on the front (Martini is an Italian alcohol brand). The logo was quietly removed in Update 2.15, probably to remain consistent with the Lancia Delta rally cars (which censored the Martini logos), and to comply with international alcohol advertising laws.
  • The Marlboro barcode is replaced by a red space on the car, probably due to the subliminal advertising controversy.
    • Texture files in GT PSP does include the Marlboro barcodes, although they are left unused for reasons above.[4]
