    The design is inspiring. Some truly marvelous designs can come from the Bertone GT Vision car. I'm not going to say what, but the car certainly has my wheels turning about vehicle design and styling.

    Brand it is a Polyphony car perhaps? Seems a shame to let such good work go to waste.

    Including it in the game under the designers name would be a great tribute to the designer.

    Do really like the look of it. Looks like the predecessor of the Wipeout cars.

    It looks like an evil older brother of those automatic hoover/vacuum cleaners. Except this one will eat your carpets and leave you with nothing but rubble where your house once stood.

    Clearly Bertone decided that they'd rather have an M3 CSL and more tracks in GTS rather than a made up car..... amirite

    If someday Polyphony Digital made a Gran Turismo set in a cyberpunk world they need to put that thing in there

    Wouldn't need a whole game for that. Just do what they did for the moon rover in GT6. Having a cyberpunk-themed set of races and time trials as a separate bonus thing could be cool.

    It's a shame Bertone went under before the car could make it. Along with the 2X and the Tomahawk, this could have been one of the most outlandish VGTs of them all.

    And thinking about it, races with the 2X and this thing would be kinda cool. It'd feel like an old racing game. The Chaparral would feel less lonely.

    Nope. There’s two wheels up front, like the DeltaWing, although they are much closer together.

    Actually, Bertone announced their return last year, though it looks like they still try to find some partnership with automotive manufacturer sort of thing :





    I hope this VGT project could have been revived as well. 2X need friend to play with...

    Actually, there were 2 manufacturers who pulled out of the VGT program: Bertone and Alfa Romeo.

    But anyway, it's great to see the original designer still has the project in his mind. The VGT program is dragging on longer and longer, so it's not impossible to think that in the future if conditions change we *might* still see it in the game. Be it GT7/8 or even further than that.

    I prefer the original design though. Much more feasible as a car:
