The style of the Pininfarina Leggenda Simulator is inspired by the Cisitalia 202, a stunning two-seat grand tourer design by Pinin Farina realised in the 1940s. The attention to detail in the manufacture of the simulator is meticulous, faithfully paying homage to sports cars of years gone by with a Nardi wooden steering wheel, manual gear lever, three-pedal configuration, and vintage Hanhart chronometer integrated into the dashboard, alongside a starter button. A single seat is surrounded by the same Marrone Tobacco-shade Connolly leather that lines the cabin of the simulator, which itself is shrouded in a narrow exterior shell—coloured Argento Vivo—that is reminiscent of many timeless classic car designs. A curved widescreen television is positioned over the driver’s seat, providing an immersive simulator experience.
Sold with access to The eClassic Club with membership to the eClassic Member App for three years, users can benefit from an online community for collector car enthusiasts within which training sessions, races, or informal group drives can be accessed, in addition to driving coaching in the eAcademy. The purchase of this Leggenda Simulator includes the scan and virtual recreation of a classic car of the new owner’s choice, while accessible members’ routes include famous tracks such as Spa, Nurburgring, Brands Hatch, a 1960s-inspired Monza, plus other alpine roads that simulate hill climb races.
