In a bid to celebrate the holiday season in the best possible way, the newest Vision Gran Turismo project car has been revealed and is Mazda’s homage to its own success at the 1991 24 Hours of Le Mans; introducing the Mazda LM55.
For the design of the Mazda LM55 Vision Gran Turismo, the Mazda Design team blended agility with elegance. Its dynamic silhouette is drawn with sensual forms inspired by Mazda’s Kodo design philosophy. Even the shape of the front grille is an interpretation of the Mazda signature front end developed for its production vehicles. The stance of the Mazda LM55 Vision Gran Turismo, reminiscent of the famed 787 B that took overall victory at the 1991 24 Hours of Le Mans, is powerful yet graceful.
The Mazda LM55 Vision Gran Turismo barely tips the scale with lightweight, carbon fiber components, including a monocoque chassis clad in striking atmospheric-white paint. Pair this with advanced drive train technology that offers the epitome of power, efficiency and durability and the result is an exceptional power to weight ratio exceeding that of most cars in its class.
The LM55 can be purchased from the “Vision GT” area within the cars section in “My Home”, and can alternatively be obtained by completing a lap—regardless of the lap time or validity itself—in the new seasonal event available for a limited time, which is as follows:
Mazda LM55 VGT Super Lap
