A new deep-dive from Suzuki into the creation of its Vision Gran Turismo has revealed that the racing car version only came into being due to a Gran Turismo World Tour finalist — who then played a key role in its development.
Back in 2015, the Italian design firm Bertone took the wraps off its Vision GT project. Radical didn’t even begin to describe the out-of-this-world concept. But sadly, we never got the chance to see the car outside of some renderings.
As we’ve known for a little while now, Audi has become the latest manufacturer to join the Vision Gran Turismo project. It’s just taken the covers off its car at a special Audi Sport event in Neuburg – and we mean literal covers. The Audi e-tron Vision Gran Turismo is, it turns out, an actual, real vehicle.
The current Honda NSX is a very impressive car. However, it also carries an equally impressive price tag which is out of the reach for most buyers. With the latest Vision GT offering from Honda however, we might have caught a glimpse of what can only be a baby NSX.
Back in May 2016, we got our first look at the Peugeot Vision GT car. The Peugeot L500 R HYbrid was exactly the kind of madness we expected. Now, for the launch of Gran Turismo Sport, Peugeot is updating the L500 with a newer version dubbed the “L750 R HYbird”.
Well that’s a welcome surprise. The Gran Turismo Sport demo is now available for pre-load in certain regions, and while the features are still locked until Monday morning, the in-game “Attract Mode” videos have revealed some goodies early.
The Vision Gran Turismo project has always been a bit of a divisive one. Some fans like the idea of manufacturers making cool concept cars for the game, some dislike the wacky Wipeout cars and would prefer a focus on reality.
After many teases, F1 legend and former Indy 500 champion Emerson Fittipaldi has pulled back the sheets on the latest entry in the Vision Gran Turismo roster on the ground in Geneva: the Fittipaldi EF7 Vision GT.
February began with the taunting reveal of the latest addition to the “not even halfway done” Vision GT Project. The Fittipaldi EF7 is headed by the legendary Italian coach-builder Pininfarina, and bears the initials of the two-time F1 and Indy 500 Driver’s Champion Emerson Fittipaldi. Set to be revealed in earnest next week, March 7 at the Geneva International Motor Show, some new information has emerged before its big day.
After legendary Italian coach builder Pininfarina’s surprise announcement that they would be collaborating with Emerson Fittipaldi to create a new Vision GT car, we’ve eagerly been waiting the latest news on it’s reveal. The car has been tipped for an official debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March, but in the mean time, small factoids and a new teaser image have been shared online.
Walk down the toy aisle of any discount department store and you’re bound to find merchandise based off the hottest properties in gaming, from Minecraft to Halo. Strangely however, racing games have always been somewhat isolated from that phenomenon — or at least until very recently. Last year, both Gran Turismo and Forza partnered with Hot Wheels on multiple occasions to release lines of diecast cars from their respective series.
