This all-electric supercar will debut tomorrow.
Jaguar has been hard at work updating existing models such as the 2021 E-Pace, and has even launched a new special Edition F-Type to celebrate 60 years of the legendary E-Type. But more excitement is on the way as the British automaker has announced that it will reveal its highly anticipated New Vision Gran Turismo supercar in a special live event on Facebook on Wednesday at 6:00 pm.
Back in 2019, we reported on the Vision Gran Turismo Coupe that fans could test out on the Playstation 4 racing game of the same name, and in September of this year a set of pictures revealed the physical version of the Vision Gran Turismo virtual racer. In July, a patent for the car was filed in China, taking the car one step closer to reality.
This car will be the British marque's second Vision GT in recent years, signaling that Jaguar is serious about building something along these lines in the near future. In a Tweet posted by Jaguar, the brand simply states " Vision, evolved. Rethink everything you know about electric gaming performance. The next chapter in our @TheGranTurismo story is coming."
Jaguar kept things under wraps, deciding to use an image that doesn't give much information at all. From what we are able to tell, the car pictured looks to be bolting down the Hunaudieres straight at Le Mans.
It is obvious that the planned production vehicle will be all-electric, and ties in with Jaguar's move to trademark the nameplate 'EV-Type' with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). The Vision Gran Turismo is expected to produce north of a thousand horsepower via three electric motors. The only thing Jaguar fans can do now is wait and see what the reveal on December 16 will hold. The reveal will possibly also shine a light on the second Jaguar VGT for players of Gran Turismo.
