And of course it has gullwing doors.
Teased online just a few days ago, Mercedes-Benz AMG has now officially unveiled its all-new Vision Gran Turismo Concept. Set to have its official live debut later this week at LA, the concept was designed specifically for the upcoming Gran Turismo 6, where gamers will have the chance to "get behind the wheel" of this gorgeous machine. Powered by an AMG bi-turbo V8 with 577 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque, it weighs a total of just 3,053 lbs. partly thanks to its aluminum space frame.
Designed at the automaker's new R&D center in Sunnyvale, California, the styling influences from the SLS AMG GT are quite obvious. Along with its gullwing doors, it retains that long hood and short rear end, although with a major design twist. It features AMG ceramic high-performance brakes and an eight-pipe exhaust system. The F1-inspired interior is comprised of red sport seats, black flooring, rocker switches on the center stack, and a floating glass surface above the steering wheel. Will it ever see production? Not a chance. With the exception of this one-off concept, the Vision Gran Turismo will remain in virtual reality. But it does offer a glimpse into what Mercedes AMG has in mind design wise for the future.
