It may seem like a while since we last got a new Vision GT car in Gran Turismo 6, but the project rumbles on. The latest manufacturer to join the ranks is Japanese industrial concern Subaru, which has today joined Polyphony Digital in the release of a teaser video and some in-game images of the impending Subaru VIZIV GT Vision Gran Turismo.
It’s probable that you’ve already seen images of the real car after its debut showing at the Geneva Motor Show in March, however it seems to have evolved somewhat from the diesel hybrid sports SUV model shown earlier in the year to a distinctly more aggressive and sporting model in the mould of earlier VGT cars like the Volkswagen Golf.
Most details are a little bit sketchy at the moment as we’re a little way out from an official unveiling in either GT6 or the real world, however the Subaru joins a Vision GT stable of particularly high performance road cars and it seems likely that it will tout something slightly more potent than the VIZIV’s 2.0 boxer diesel and continuously variable transmission pairing. As a Subaru it’s also relatively reasonable to guess it’ll put whatever power it has down to the deck through an all-wheel drive system. However, all we can say for sure right now is that it’ll be another plug-in hybrid model.
Vision GT cars in the past have not had a particularly long lead time from reveal to being drivable in Gran Turismo, so expect this car to come along shortly as part of a light content bundle as GT6 approaches its first birthday!
