Last week, Audi released the latest Vision Gran Turismo vehicle in, well, Gran Turismo Sport. Actually, it’s a pair of cars, with a hybrid Gr.1 model and the original EV joining the lineup. We’ve taken both around the track to get an idea of what they’re all about.

As we’ve known for a little while now, Audi has become the latest manufacturer to join the Vision Gran Turismo project.

Remember last week, when Motogames.tv dropped a video of the Bugatti Vision GT taking to Polyphony’s new oval circuit? The video coverage continues, this time not from the perspective within the carbon fibre creation, but from various vantage points around the track.
When the Vision GT Project took off back in 2013, nobody really knew how long the collaborative effort between Polyphony Digital and leading automobile manufacturers and design houses was going to last.

Big news out of Melbourne earlier this week: in the run-up to the 2016 F1 season, Red Bull Racing and Aston Martin announced a long-term partnership that will not only see the winged logo of Gaydon adorn the RB12’s of Ricciardo and Kvyat, but the two companies collaborating on a road car.
