Bugatti reveals real life 'Gran Turismo' supercar

Petrolheads will be weeping salty tears of joy at the sight of Bugatti’s newest motor.

And gaming fans will have something to cheer about as well, as it turns out the new concept car from the manufacturer was inspired by Gran Turismo.

It’s called the Bugatti Vision Grand Turismo and was first created inside the blockbuster racing franchise that runs on Sony’s PlayStation consoles.

The in-game car was the first glimpse, but now Bugatti has revealed a real life version made out of carbon fibre and metal.

Whilst it’ll never reach it to production, the Vision Gran Turismo concept hints at what we might see from the next supercar it produces.

“Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo is the first stage on a new journey that Bugatti is embarking on following the successful completion of its Veyron chapter, and which will culminate in the unveiling of the next Bugatti super sports car in the not too distant future,” said Wolfgang Dürheimer, president of Bugatti.

Infiniti Vision Gran Turismo concept transforms from video game to reality

Infiniti Vision Gran Turismo concept transforms from video game to reality

Infiniti is tantalisingly and teasingly close to releasing a supercar that could turn the luxury car world upside down. We’ve seen the Q80 Inspiration and Q60 Concept debut within the past year, at the Paris and Detroit auto shows.

Before that were cars like the electric-powered Emerg-E sports car, not to mention the outrageous Q50 Eau Rouge, a sedan stuffed with the same twin-turbo V-6 and all-wheel-drive system found in the GT-R supercar.

Now we have this, the Infiniti Vision GT. It’s another hint that Nissan’s luxury brand is thinking seriously – and for a seriously LONG time – about propelling its range into some rarefied territory occupied by exotic cars.

This concept came about thanks to Sony Playstation’s Gran Turismo racing simulator, and this marks the first time the low-slung coupe has appeared in the real world. While still very much a concept – meaning it doesn’t have a powertrain, or an interior of any sort – the design is an absolute homerun.

The entire front of the Vision GT is dominated by a chrome-ringed grille with the Infiniti logo proudly in the centre. Seen from the side, we spot more than a hint of GT-R, especially in the air vents immediately ahead of each door. Could this concept be a styling exercise for Nissan’s next supercar? And it could also signal that Infiniti might get a rebadged and restyled version of the next “Godzilla” sports car?

A range-topping performance model makes a lot of sense, considering Infinitihas often struggled to find its own identity in the luxury car market. It could also allow Nissan the chance to reap some extra profit by getting more mileage (and sales) from the next-generation of the GT-R platform and powertrain.

For the moment, you can only drive the Infiniti Vision GT in the video game world. But don’t be surprised if Infiniti rolls the dice and something very close to this concept scorches it’s way to tire-smoking reality within the next 2-3 years.

Nissan Virtual Supercar To Celebrate 15th Years of Gran Turismo

Nissan has lifted the virtual covers off the Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo, a vision of what a high performance Nissan could look like in the future.

It was created through close collaboration with the creators of Gran Turismo®, Polyphony Digital Inc., the legendary PlayStation® driving franchise.

Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo began life as dream project for Nissan designers who were given free rein to create their dream supercar for their own Gran Turismo fantasy garage.

Created by a team of young designers at Nissan Design Europe, in London, the model was considered to have so much potential that it has benefited from input from an advanced engineering team based at Nissan Technical Centre in Atsugi, Japan.

As a result, Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo gives hints as to how a supercar of the future might look.

In July, automotive enthusiasts will be able to discover that performance first-hand when it becomes available to download in Gran Turismo®6, just as they did with the Nissan GT-R and Skylines from earlier episodes of the historic franchise.

That performance heritage and commitment to delivering excitement for enthusiasts is why there are more Nissan vehicles in the franchise than any other brand.

But as a specialist in automotive design in three-dimensions, Nissan believes that the real-world is ready for the Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo. Watch this space…

Gran Turismo Supercar Becomes Reality

Gran Turismo Supercar Becomes Reality Volkswagen has taken the designs for a GTI Roadster, destined to appear in the next instalment of racing game Gran Turismo, and turned it into a reality.

The supercar has 20-inch alloy wheels, a top speed of 190mph (306 km/h) and goes from 0 to 60 in under 3.6 seconds.

The angular-looking GTI Roadster has a large spoiler and is fitted with a 3-litre, twin-turbocharged V6 engine. This develops 500bhp and 413lb ft of torque to propel the car’s 1,420kg weight.

The supercar is the work of three Volkswagen designers, who won a competition to design a vehicle to celebrate the 15th anniversary of Gran Turismo.

It has been on display at the Woerthersee car show in Germany this week, but sadly the model that’s been built is a one-off concept Volkswagen said it has no current plans to put the supercar into mass production, and make it widely available.

Klaus Bischoff, head of design at Volkswagen, said: ‘When Sony asked us if we would develop a Vision GT vehicle exclusively for the game to mark the 15th anniversary of Gran Turismo we didn’t hesitate for a moment.’

Gran Turismo 6 vs Real Life

Gran Turismo 6 vs Real Life

Do you remember when Nissan launched its GT Academy back in 2008? If not, the idea was to find professional racers from a computer game. Gaming enthusiasts all over the world submitted their times on a unique race track on Gran Turismo 5, then the fastest 22 were invited to Silverstone to compete for a chance to race professional for Nissan.

Great, now that you’re ‘up to speed’ (sorry) here’s what’s happened since then…

Nissan’s GT Academy has become a genuine recruiting tool for the world of motorsport. This back door into racing is ever popular with gaming hopefuls. However there is still a huge gap between playing the game and racing a real car.

Above all else, the largest difference is fear. As you can imagine squeezing the ‘X’ button and holding full throttle in Gran Turismo is a lot easier than keeping your foot flat to the floor in a real car travelling at 100mph plus. Keeping committed to a corner in a game is easy, but in real life, you know a mistake will hurt.

Also in Gran Turismo a gear change is as quick as tapping a button – but in real life, every gear shift will lose you time. You are also usually slower to react on the brakes and accelerator, as well as being incredibly heavy-handed with the steering, as demonstrated in this video:
