Nissan’s vision of a supercar for near future, originally created as the study model among Nissan’s young designers and later formulated as a virtual model for the PlayStation Gran Turismo 6 computer game, has moved from the virtual world to reality!
The full-size concept model will be presented at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK on June 26 at the Nissan booth.
NISSAN CONCEPT 2020 Vision Gran Turismo emerged from styling study among Nissan’s global pool of young designers. Each team was answering a call from the makers of Gran Turismo 6, who have asked a total of 28 different manufacturers to each create a dream car to celebrate the game’s 15th birthday.
Although visitors to Goodwood Festival of Speed will see a physical interpretation of the car, the first people to “drive” it will be GT6 gamers. NISSAN CONCEPT 2020 Vision Gran Turismo, which will be available in ten different shades, will be available to download in July.
“This is in line with the Nissan philosophy,” said Koji Nagano, Vice President, Nissan Design Europe. “In reality, not everyone would be able to own a car like NISSAN CONCEPT 2020 Vision Gran Turismo, but through Gran Turismo anyone can drive it and experience Nissan’s promise of delivering innovation that excites.”
Will a production version be driven up the Goodwood hill in 2020? That remains to be seen, but a great deal can happen in the near future. And in the meantime, enthusiasts can enjoy its dramatic looks and spectacular virtual performance from the comfort of their armchair.
