Mercedes-Benz’s first Vision Gran Turismo project has now been fully revealed, ahead of its official debut next week at the grand opening of the Mercedes‑Benz Research & Development Center in Sunnyvale, California on November 19.
The car features “extreme proportions” and a bi-turbo V8 engine which produces 585HP and 800 Nm of torque while weighing only 3,053 lbs. – check the Mercedes’ press release for more details.
Curiously, the press release hints at a special exhaust note for the car:
The AMG sports exhaust system with eight tailpipes integrated into the rear end provides a powerful accompaniment whenever the car accelerates, and ensures an unrivalled motorsports sound experience.
For fans of Gran Turismo® 6, the Mercedes-AMG sound specialists have created a powerful, sonorous exhaust note that authentically celebrates the V8’s love of high engine speeds.
The car will be available as a free gift in Gran Turismo 6 “when the game hits store shelves” on December 6.
