During the Goodwood Festival of Speed in UK, Nissan unveiled the real-life version of the Concept 2020 Vision GT that was originally set to be a supercar for the game Gran Turismo 6. It is a complete and detailed version of the in-game racing car right from its ventilated hood down to the four-wheel drive chassis.
This futuristic-looking automobile is part of Gran Turismo 6’s “Vision Gran Turismo festival” that invites car makers to share and build a concept car to be used in-game as a downloadable content. Mercedes Benz, BMW, Mitsubishi, and Volkswagen have all submitted their own concept cars so far, and this Nissan-built racer will be the next to appear in July.
The Concept 2020 Vision GT is a product of Nissan Design Europe led by Taisuke Nakamura and Nissan engineers in Japan to make sure that the vehicle looks exactly like the one to appear in the video game.
“It’s a new styling challenge without any constraints or boundaries. It was purely a design challenge from outside to see how much we can go further to achieve an attractive design,” said Nakamura.
To those fans of Gran Turismo 6 and those who became instant fans of this supercar, you’ll get the chance to sit behind its steering wheel once it makes its appearance in the game next month! Are you ready?
