Aston Martin Vision GT Car Full Reveal, Hits GT6 in July

June 27th, 2014 by Wardez

The Aston Martin DP-100 Vision GT concept car was fully revealed today at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed. The DP-100 is a new creation from the Aston Martin design team exclusively for Gran Turismo 6. The virtual concept will be made available as a free download for GT6 some time this July.

Powered by twin-turbo V12 engine located midship, the machine boasts up to 800 BHP. The sound of the engine definitely exhibits Aston Martin’s legendary punchy and aggressive exhaust note. We expect this to be yet another enjoyable monster of a car for players to be challenged with taming in game soon.

Design Director Marek Reichman.

“DP-100 has been an exciting and intensive project for the team here at Gaydon. Features such as the car’s revolutionary ‘active aerodynamics’ are there not just as a way of enhancing form, but also to support the car’s function in-game. As with the CC100 Speedster Concept, many of the design cues visible in DP-100, such as the light blade rear lamps, could also feed through into future sports cars that we’ll launch in the offline world so the importance of this project should not be underestimated.”

Kazunori Yamauchi.

“When I first came face to face with this car at the Aston Martin Headquarters in Gaydon, UK, I was at a loss for words seeing the level of perfection in its design. I was surprised by the bold proposal of the car being the first midship layout model in Aston Martin history. And while it is clean and classy in design, it is also very emotional. Not only that, there was this future Aston Martin in front of me, that was so detailed it could be released on the market pretty much as is.”

    Jaguars and Aston’s always have some sort of resemblance to each other… Even here, this DP-100 looks like a modern day XJ220. You don’ even have to struggle to see it.

    After watching the video and reading the latest Autocar mag, I can safely say this will have an interior. Something about the doors being designed to open in game…

    I really hope this car will really be able to be tuned, because recent Vision GT cars can’t be tuned.

    The ugliest Vision GT yet I’m sure you meant to say!
    Watching the trailer they talk about it like it’s God’s gift to the automobile industry.
    It is British though I suppose. Time to step out inthe wind and let those tickets blow of I believe!

    Ya know what it actually reminds me a lot of is the Ford GT90, those headlights scream GT90 and I must say, that’s a little disappointing from Aston.

    An excellent companion to the AMG VGT. Hopefully ;)

    I like it. I’m not a huge fan of the headlights, but I do like it. I would automatically love it if it has an interior though.

    This car is by far the best looking Vision GT project so far. The headlights are a little weird, but I like them!

    People doubting the interior…if you can see the engine bank from outside, why would you not be able to from the inside? I think it will.

    savage if anything the rear echo’s Jaguar CX-75 but yeah i agree with flying scots the v12 sounds like a v8 but nonetheless i love the design.can’t wait 2 drive it

    Why are people complaining about getting a VGT car and saying I would prefer a Zagato or something? What did you fall on your head, this is for VGT what part of that didn’t you understand? Incredible the limit is being reached right now, PD hasn’t started releasing DLC cars as of yet, only VGT and special cars have been added so far, how about you wait until they announce the paid for DLC eh?

    That car looks decidely DB9 like in the rear, and a mix of that super car from Burnout the McLaren look alike. Don’t care, I want to drive it. Seems like the VGT program is in fast forward, so perhaps they streamlined the process and soon will announce some paid for DLC cars…cars not in GT.

    Yes. I won’t lie. I have been slighty disappointed with GT6. What I don’t understand why people are acting in surprised disappointment at the VGT project? From the original announcement of the first concept images; it was apparent that alot of these cars would look to the future, or like nothing we had seen before. The key was in the word “Vision”. The VGT project was announced before the game was released, so it has taken nothing away from PD producing more “real” life cars in the game. This is a completely separate project. Also people are complaining that it doesn’t look like current production cars, but then that to me would defeat the purpose; the BMW is just looks like a wide body production car with no original ideas put into it, and to me doesn’t fit in with the other revealed VGT cars.

    Personally I am pleased with the look with alot of the VGT cars. I think they look exactly what they should be; a fantastical, imagined pieces of machinery that we could only dream of driving. Would I like real production cars to appear as downloads in GT6? Absolutely! But I think they are two separate things. The fact that the creators of this car are willing to put so much effort, seriousness and reveal these cars at important events and exclusively to GT6, shows a level of commitment like I have never seen before. The realtionship buliding between PD and car manufacterers involved could lead to some incredible devlopments. People need to understand what these cars are and project are about. Maybe then they would appreciate them more?

    Very stylish. Very Aston Martin. And hurray for real engines! Reminds me a bit of the Veyron, but in a good way. Too bad it won’t have an interior which kills my interest of driving it.

      @ Husky:
      I guess you didn’t see the second video?

      : )

      Was that an interior? I thought it was, at first. However, I might be getting fooled by it just being reflections on the glass.

      I’ll need to look at it a few more times to be sure.

      The lack of interiors for any of the cars in GT6 is a huge mistake. Taking them out of (or not digitally creating them) the Vision GT cars had to be one of the biggest blunders made by the graphics department.

    ScotteDawg

    I’ll be honest – I’m not a big fan of MR cars, but this Aston looks good, even if it’s a sort of mash-up of a Ford GT90, Jaguar XJ220 and a Bugatti Veyron!
    The two things (visually) that is definitely Aston Martin is the grille and the painted outline of the grille! I’m also rather taken with the carbon/leather interior as shown at the 17 second mark of the second video!

  32. Jun. 27, 10:29am
    Flying Scots

    Not the worse VGT car, but:
    1)V12 sounds as a V8
    2)Is, in any case, a FANTASY car, that desturb me alot.
    I would have much preferred the V12 Zagato, or DB9R which won in its category at Le Mans, or Vantage which participates in the WEC championship…

    • Jun. 28, 8:09pm
      wudy201

      There is no vision in a DB9R or a Zagato so there was never a reason to hope or even consider that as a VGT car, Actually if one of those cars would have been Astons VGT it would of shown a lack of or absolutely no vision in Aston Martin. I think the point of VGT is exactly as it sounds, a vison, a car that you throw everything into with no restrictions or bounderies limiting possibilities, its a chance to show off in a sense as a car manufactuer kind of like a competition i feel like, Its a chance and mabey the only chance they have to show off what they are capable and can do and actually having a large number of people see it. I think its there chance to one up rival car maufactuers and I dont see the point in wasting this opportunity on creating a already existing car or a even basing it on an existing car thatz where I feel BMW screwed up that car is nice but I see nothing of vision in it it shows me tha they really cant design a car that doesnt already look like every other car in there lineup.
      Anyway good point on the engine sound(sarcasim) what would be an article without some crying about sounds again and again. Really?

  33. Jun. 27, 10:28am
    LJP64

    Well, this is “design”.
    Looks great. I hope we will get the interior, having this fantastic piece of design without the interior would be a crime…

    Nissan’s so-called designers should have a look at that Aston Martin Vision car concept…

      At 17 seconds into the second video they SHOW the interior! Looks effin awesome too!! I suggest you actually WATCH the second video…

    • Jun. 27, 10:53am
      HuskyGT

      That is no guarantee that the car in the game will have an interior. Those were manufacturer sketches. PD is too busy doing other stuff irrelevant to the game and lacking of personnel to focus on detailing interiors on cars.

    • Jun. 27, 12:40pm
      SCER

      @HuskyGT, please tell me about all of the detailed interior sketches that were provided to GT for the BMW VGT and the Mercedes VGT, and thousands of other concept cars come to think of it.

  36. Jun. 27, 9:32am

    Hope there’s an interior to go with that.

    • Jun. 27, 9:55am

      …in that video on top they talk about the interior design.
      In the video is a scene witch looks promising at 1:11.
      One can see the top of a dashboard an a wheel.
      Maybe we are lucky again this time like with the VW.

    • Jun. 27, 10:44am
      ScotteDawg

      17 seconds into the 2nd video – watch it to see the interior!
      Remember, the companies that make the VGT cars are the ones who design the interior and, if they do it on a computer as Nissan, VW and Aston Martin did, the interior should also show up in GT6!

    • Jun. 27, 10:54am
      HuskyGT

      Those are manufacturer sketches and 3D models. It means absolutely nothing. The Mercedes Vision GT has an interior and PD never put it in the game.

    I rarely complain but, I’ve been known to make comments directly to Aston on how much all there cars look the same. I have to give them cridet for taking a chance and going far outside the box!!!!!!!!!

      Its not just Aston it almost every European car company I think, Bentley, Jaguars, Minis, BMW, Pagani, most Audis and Mercedes, Land/Range Rovers, TVR, Volvo, Porsche. IMO you see one you seen them all.

    So, the Ford GT90 had some with the Pininfarina P4/5? And they badge it as Aston Martin.

    I like.

    hard to tell if there’s an interior or not, but we can clearly see the helmet, and the third to the last photo (the black and red stripe DP-100) kinda looks like there’s an interior…..BUT since there’s no interior photo at all suggests otherwise :|
