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 #01

Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo

Movie

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.
