Brembo in GT7
The Italian brand will be integrated into Gran Turismo 7 in the tuning shop. Players will be able to upgrade their car's brakes from the standard and stock versions to Brembo items.
There will be a huge variety of options for players, providing different levels of performance.
Even the top-end carbon-ceramic discs and GT|BM calipers will be available for players to use, and in eight different colours too. You might have to save your credits for those though!
In addition, Brembo will be added to GT7's Brand Central, highlighting the company's 60-year history, while the logos will be seen on track hoardings and other on-circuit displays.
Brembo CEO Daniele Schillaci said
“We are particularly proud to deliver the uniqueness of Brembo braking systems to the Gran Turismo series. This iconic driving simulation video game franchise has built a strong community of millions of gamers around the world since its creation almost 25 years ago.
“For Brembo, this partnership represents an extraordinary opportunity to reach out to the younger generations, which is in line with our vision Turning Energy into Inspiration. From the asphalt of the track, the performance and design of our systems have now become part of the virtual world of Gran Turismo 7. Our ambition is to further enhance the gaming experience, just as the driving experience does in reality.”
