Vision Gran Turismo
A celebration of "Gran Turismo"
Vision GT
The project started with a question from Kazunori Yamauchi: "Would you be willing to design your rendition of Gran Turismo for us?" The videogame’s name "Gran Turismo" (GT) refers to a 2-door sport car, known as a Grand Touring car in the automotive world.
The manufacturers who have answered our call are now delivering new Grand Touring cars in succession. “Vision Gran Turismo” is a 15th anniversary celebration that will be hosted by Gran Turismo, car manufacturers and users around the globe. The cars presented will appear one after another in Gran Turismo 6, and as those cars will be driven by more and more people, the festival will get bigger and bigger.

Vision Gran Turismo #04
Volkswagen GTI Roadster Vision Gran Turismo
Based on successful GTI DNA, Volkswagen Design has developed a highly distinctive supercar: the “GTI Roadster Vision Gran Turismo”.
The design owes much to the successful history of the GTI: style-defining design elements from the various GTI generations illustrate the extraordinary evolution of this vehicle. Boasting a visionary design, the Roadster promises an immediate driving experience – the extreme acceleration can be experienced directly through the low-cut windscreen.
Powered by a 3.0 twin-turbo VR6 TSI engine, the "GTI Roadster Vision Gran Turismo" delivers 503 HP (503 BHP)with an enormous torque of 665 Nm (67.8 kgfm). The 7-speed dual-clutch transmission with sports programming ensures phenomenal acceleration and fast gearshifts on the race track.
An aerodynamically optimised front and rear spoiler, together with an integrated diffuser element at the rear, achieve the required downforce for excellent roadholding. Fitted with 20-inch wheels in size 235/35 (front) and 275/30 (rear), the massive torque can be transferred reliably to the track via 4 driven wheels. The supercar features ventilated ceramic brakes, 380 mm in diameter at the front and 356 mm at the rear..
The "GTI Roadster Vision Gran Turismo" is presented in a bright, intense Gran Turismo Red, a modern interpretation of the classic GTI Red.
The result is a fascinating and exceptionally dynamic extreme sports car with a sophisticated design for the race track in which players can gain a unique impression of what it’s like to drive in the GTI world.

Mitsubishi Concept XR-PHEV EVOLUTION Vision Gran Turismo '14
Mitsubishi Motors, a company with a spectacular history in races like the Dakar Rally and World Rally Championships (WRC), has developed a special concept model for Vision Gran Turismo: This is the “Mitsubishi Concept XR-PHEV EVOLUTION Vision Gran Turismo”.
In the development of this special concept model, Mitsubishi Motors introduced their design team, Advanced Vehicle Research and Development Group, and Aerodynamic Engineering Development Group into this project in the same process they would normally follow to plan and develop real motorsports vehicles.
The styling of the car follows the basic concepts of the “MITSUBISHI Concept XR-PHEV” shown at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, while pouring in know-how gained from years of motorsports experience into its every detail. As a result the concept was evolved into a stoic racing machine.
The “Athlete Form” design concept was advanced further, emphasising the driving features aggressively. The iconic front grill is a study of next generation Mitsubishi SUV identity, and the shape that forms a wedge starting from the triple diamond mark is designed in the image of an athlete at crouching position on a starting line, evoking an intense image of tension and potential.
Applying advanced development technology from the Plug-in Hybrid EV System, the spontaneous power of the motor and powerful torque of the engine is transmitted through an 8 speed dual clutch transmission (DCT) to drive the 4 wheels. Its overwhelming drive performance is controlled precisely with the S-AWC vehicle dynamics control system that distributes the drive force optimally to the 4 wheels, producing a handling characteristic that moves the car exactly as the driver desires. In addition, the carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) body reduces weight and greatly contributes to its agility, and the downforce produced by the aerodynamic form of the front and rear diffusers produces excellent cornering performance. The large diameter 20 inch aluminum wheels gives an impression of a tough suspension system, and the powerful appearance of the front and rear fenders is in the image of toned muscles of a powerful athlete.
We hope you enjoy this special concept model, packed with the sports spirit of Mitsubishi Motors.

Vision Gran Turismo #02
BMW Vision Gran Turismo
Following in the tradition of the successful BMW touring cars of the 1970s, the BMW design team has created an uncompromising road racer for the modern era.
Crisp proportions and a dynamic silhouette give the BMW Vision Gran Turismo the appearance of speed, even standing still. Front and rear spoilers ensure optimum down-force, while all air conduction elements reduce drag and lower the vehicle’s total weight through the use of carbon fibre.
The paint finish in BMW M colours traces the flow of the airstream, recalling BMW Motorsports successes.
The technology in the BMW Vision Gran Turismo is just as impressive as its uncompromising design. A powerful three-litre six-cylinder inline engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology delivers a maximum power of 404 kW/541 BHP between 6,200 rpm and 7,300 rpm. Its peak torque of 680 Nm/69 kgfm is developed at just 1,900 rpm. A sequential six-speed transmission, operated by gearshift paddles on the steering wheel, distributes engine power to the driven rear axle.
The outstanding performance characteristics of the BMW Vision Gran Turismo, which weighs only 1,180 kilograms, include perfect 50:50 axle load distribution.

Vision Gran Turismo #01
Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo
Vision Gran Turismo is a project in which the world’s automakers and global brands develop a concept car for the fans of Gran Turismo. The car that crowns the opening of this innovative collaboration is the Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo.
The design team at Mercedes-Benz incorporated both the agility and graceful elegance of a large cat on the hunt into the car's image. The characteristic body with its sleek contours is reminiscent of traditional Mercedes-Benz sportscar proportions. Even the shape of the front grill is a reinterpretation of the wide Mercedes-Benz sportscar grille, with the central three-pointed star. Its shape is reminiscent of the legendary 300 SL racing car which won the third Carrera Panamericana in 1952, known for being one of the toughest long-distance races in the world.
With an aluminium spaceframe body and components in carbon fibre, the material of choice in motor racing, the Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo tips the scales at only 1,385 kg. The AMG V8 biturbo engine delivers an exceptionally agile response to even the smallest movements of the accelerator. It develops 430 kW (577 BHP) and a maximum torque of 800 Nm. With its ultra-lightweight body, the power-to-weight ratio calculates to an amazing 2.4 kg/BHP. In addition, just about anyone can experience its breathtaking performance thanks to its AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports, which is systematically configured for outstandingly dynamic performance.
The sound of the car is another point to be noted. The powerful howl emitted by this engine was composed by sound specialists at AMG. The sonorous exhaust note and engine sounds are tuned perfectly to awaken the excitement of a racetrack wherever you are.
The double wishbone suspension on the front and rear axles reflects a long-standing racing experience at Mercedes-Benz. The electronic differential lock ensures the ideal amount of traction for the powered rear wheels. The AMG ceramic high-performance compound brake system guarantees excellent deceleration.
Experience for yourself the exquisite concept sportscar presented by Mercedes-Benz.
