Nissan today revealed the Vision Gran Turismo, a virtual concept for the
Playstation3 game Gran Turismo. It was created through close collaboration with
the creators of Gran Turismo, Polyphony Digital Inc.
Nissan 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, England, the model was considered to have so much potential that it has benefited from input from an advanced engineering team based at Nissan Technical center in Atsugi, Japan.
As a result, the concept 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 Turismo6, 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 Nissan vehicles in the franchise.
In an announcement, Nissan hinted that it might produce a real-world version of the Vision Gran Turismo in the near future.
