Nissan to Bring Updated Vision GT Car to Tokyo Motor Show

October 12th, 2015 by Jordan Greer

Nissan introduced one of the most radical-looking Vision GT project cars at last year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, and it looks like the company is ready to do a bit more with the progressive-looking concept.

At this year’s Tokyo Motor Show, they’ll be revealing an updated (real-life) version of the car in a new “Fire Knight” color and “a new expression of Nissan’s signature V-Motion grille”.

Of course, the announcement has only fueled speculation in the automotive press that the “Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo” car is offering a heavy tease of what to expect in the next-generation GT-R, expected to be revealed sometime within the next few years.

The Tokyo Motor Show kicks off later this month on October 29th. As always, we’ll keep an eye out for any additional developments from Japan. Thanks to Furinkazen for the tip!

    I like the way VGT cars experiment with different drive trian…power sell,battery, highbrids…and othere aerodynamics and the fact GT6 incorporates all these technology’s

    If they do update it in GT6, I seriously hope that they make it fully upgradeable like the BMW M4 became. The 2020 has so much potential for top speed racing…

      Agreed. It also needs a major suspension re-do. Really not feeling the fixed camber and toe…

    I like this car actually but when received it was fitted with Sports tires and 600+hp doesn’t do it justice.

    Should it made its appearance on GT6 it better have MORE power and spec-ed for racing. Fast and legalised for the Le Mans!

    Seriously butt ugly, a step backwards for Nissan.

    • Oct. 12, 4:53pm

      It’s a concept. Concepts are meant to help designers to decide on which direction they should go with their design in the future. That’s why some look better than others.

      I will say, a lot of cars are headed in the direction the Nissan 2020 is in. Have you even seen the 2016/7 Prius?

      I also think it’s ugly. I’ve liked the look of most of the VGT’s so far but this one got beat with the ugly stick before it left the designer’s table.

    Hopefully they might add a detailed interior to it.

    I do have to say, it doesn’t look all that different. Maybe they’ll add the color in the game?

      Did you guys even read the article?

      “At this year’s Tokyo Motor Show, they’ll be revealing an updated (real-life) version of the car in a new “Fire Knight” color and “a new expression of Nissan’s signature V-Motion grille”.

      They’ve made it into a “real car”. So what are you talking about? Btw, all “real cars” are drawn up and created into a computer models first before hitting production. We just have the opportunity to play with the computer models before they’re physically made. So unless by “real cars” you guys mean cars meant to hit mass production, u guys can drop it line of reasoning.

      The ZZII. Cadillac Cien, GT90, Vector M12 & W8, Renault Espace, Suzuki Escudo, multiple GT-86 concepts, Camouflage Corvette, R8 Concept, GT by Citroen, etc. are all VGTs to some degree and represents the uniqueness in the offerings Gran Turismo has across the board throughout each iteration. This is no different and falls perfectly in line with all that is Gran Turismo (Kubelwagens, Nike Cars, Lunar Rovers, and all…). It’s been about 2 years and the VGT Project should soon be coming to a close, so give it a rest please. The real cars will come in GT7. In the meantime, why not enjoy what you have?

      I find it odd that rather than appreciate the uniqueness and exclusivity of these vehicles, you’d rather these vehicles be common and rolling the streets everywhere first before finding them acceptable. Meanwhile, people usually prefer being the first to have things, and usually run out quickly to get them before anyone else does… Bizzare…

      Congratulations Kolio on Member of the Week!

      Pretty sure “real cars” usually refers to cars currently or previously in production and sold on the showroom floor. Pretty simple concept really.

      Simple “concept”. Oh, the irony. I couldn’t agree more.

      Bugatti varon….theirs only 450 of them…production car or still concept car?

    • Oct. 13, 2:44pm
      Obelisk

      biftizmo, the definition of a production car is a vehicle with at least 30 produced a year. The Veyron is very much a low-run production car. Concepts are usually one-off, but some are pre-production cars. The MX-Crossport is a good example, as it’s a pre-pro of the CX7 SUV.

      You may want to read a dictionary, too…

    • Oct. 14, 10:18am
      biftizmo

      Obelisk…..30 you say. Is that made up or a fact? Just because you have a dictionary doesn’t mean you can make stuff up….
      Shall we all read all dictionary’s in all languages before we come on here just to chat…if so then I think you might be here bye yourself…ease up buddy.lets not scare anyone away with our English pompas’ness…

    • Oct. 15, 12:50pm

      When assessing speed records, the Guinness Book of World Records uses 30 as the minimum production run to qualify as a production car. It’s as good a definition as any. The FIA used to use 25 in 12 months as a general rule for being included as a “production” sports car.

      Good question. I took pics of the original vgt and this one and I don’t see any difference except for paint.

      Though the car originally debuted at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed, it will receive minor re-tweaks for its Tokyo reveal. Gone is the dark silver paint, traded in for a vivid red hue Nissan calls Fire Knight. The grille has been revamped as well, now bolder and with the V’s arms extending into the bodywork. This so-called V-motion grille has been propagated throughout Nissan’s production car lineup from the Murano to the Maxima.

      I’m not a fan of the V-motion grille, but love the Fire Knight color.
