Even if Bertone has made a comeback in some form I'm still not too confident on the VGT finally coming to fruition.

The GT one could also be a nice looking McLaren. :)
A sexy beast!

And I love that they do not go the "1000 HP route" with it....which you obviously don't need if you watch the top speed and the 0 to 62 time.

Cool car.

When they design these cars, they start at the front end and all goes well. Getting to the middle design of the car, all is still well but when they get to the back end, they seem to lose interest in the car and someone else finishes the car in a rush and everything gets messed up.

Great news for the car world, not too confident on the VGT though as it seems even the other pending manufacturers have given up.

For consolation, I'll just leave the first Bertone VGT sketch here:

If an unrelated consultancy company bought the Bertone name purely so they had some sort of cachet they could market with the stuff they were making anyway (which they straight up admitted they were doing), with which they could then licence out to whatever company wants to launch a vaporware supercar, it's unlikely they care about bringing an anonymous Batmobile to a video game even if they had the rights to the design (which Akka probably don't since the company was parted out so throughly). Even bringing it up to them would be like asking someone at Lancia in 2011 what the design inspiration was behind the new Thema and Flavia.




Especially since the brand that Akka bought was actually relaunched in November of 2017 (with no word of the Vision GT since then); and the other Bertone that make trains and stuff has been around since they licenced the name before the original actually was broken up (also with no word of the Vision GT).

Bertone should make a modern retro-styled Muira. Very retro-styled.

It's a Gran Turismo site. Chances are people who read the news on a Gran Turismo site will want to know about connections to Gran Turismo in general, especially with the Vision GT program.

Okay then: There aren't any.


Even if Akka does have the rights to the unused Bertone designs like the VGT and didn't just buy the name so people would pay more attention to their own designs (like they said they did), the unrelated company they licenced the Bertone name out to slap on an unrelated car certainly don't.
