This is the result of a serious labor of passion.
It was one of the stars of the LA Auto Show, and having revealed the one-off Benz in the metal, Mercedes has released a making-of video detailing how the AMG Vision Gran Turismo quickly went from the sketch pad to show floor. More than just a virtual plaything for Gran Turismo fanboys, the concept was ultimately brought to life, albeit without an engine. The designers were encouraged to let their imaginations go wild given the car was never destined for the road, yet the Benz boys worked hard to make the car attractive to gamers.
So as well as giving it drop-dead gorgeous looks with plenty of futuristic styling, the Vision GT comes with a twin-turbo V8 rated at 577-hp and 590 lb-ft of torque that makes all the right sounds.
