The Ferrari 296 GTB is the first licensed car coming to Fortnite, and you'll need to reach top speed with the new vehicle in order to complete one of this week's quests. The Ferrari is a very fast car, but you don't need to push the vehicle to its limits for this challenge. You'll still need to gain some speed, but the term "top speed" is a bit misleading. As long as you drive in good conditions, you should be able to complete this quest with ease. Here's how to get to top speed in a Ferrari 296 GTB in Fortnite.
How to Get Top Speed in a Ferrari in Fortnite
The Ferrari 296 GTB can reach speeds of over 100 MPH in Fortnite, but you don't need to go that fast to complete this quest. You'll only need to hit just over 80 MPH for it to count as "top speed". This is because the Ferrari replaced the Whiplash, which had a top speed of around 88 MPH. It looks like Fortnite still technically counts the car as a boost, so you only need to hit that speed for this challenge.
The best place to do this quest is Believer Beach. Ferraris tend to spawn there quite frequently, and there's a long straight road you can use to pick up some speed. If you're having trouble tracking down a Ferrari, check out our Fortnite Ferrari locations map.
To reach top speed, the Ferrari must be driven in optimal conditions. Find a long stretch of road with no obstacles blocking your way and hit the accelerator as hard as you can. If you can find a downhill path, even better. Don't be afraid to hit the boost if you need a little more speed. Once the speedometer hits around 88 MPH, the challenge will be complete.
Once you complete this quest, you can work on the other Ferrari-themed challenges for week 7. This week, you'll need to complete the Ferrari Time Trials and drive a Ferrari through the storm. Along with the Ferrari challenges, you'll also need to build a wooden hatchery and defeat Riot as well.
Fortnite is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and mobile devices.
