BMW Vision Gran Turismo Unveiled
The BMW Vision Gran Turismo is BMW’s contribution to the Gran Turismo 15th anniversary festival, with automotive manufacturers each contributing their concept vehicle to appear in the virtual world of the Playstation 3 game, Gran Turismo 6.
The BMW Vision Gran Turismo is based on the M235i with a (virtual) twin-turbo six-cylinder engine producing 541 horsepower and a six-speed sequential transmission. The car is painted in the BMW M colors, with aggressive front and rear spoilers and carbon fiber body panels to reduce body weight. If you happen to own a copy of Gran Turismo 6, you can download and drive the BMW Vision Gran Turismo around the track to your heart’s content.
Check out the video below, in which the designers behind the GT6 car describe their approach and the car, which continues to reflect BMW’s design principles in the virtual world.
