The Mercedes have prepared an amazing surprise with its latest work. It is a car with name Mercedes AMG Vision Gran Turismo. This name indicates a fact that designers of game Gran Turismo 6 are also involved in the whole project, after all, this car will be included in the game as a vehicle which can be driven. Considering that this game is one of the most popular car games that exist, it is believed that the cooperation between the two teams will give excellent results. Producer of Grand Tourism, Mr. Kazumi Yamauchi, wanted from Mercedes to show him how cars will look in the future and that is exactly what he got. An incredible futuristic-looking car and a very strong engine will attract the attention of all lovers of speed and adventure.
Mercedes AMG Vision Gran Turismo – Welcome to the Future:
We are wondering where to start in describing the incredible Mercedes AMG Vision Gran Turismo looks! The body is muscular and full of curves and recesses. The ratio of surfaces is also the thing that attracts attention. A hood is very long, and both sides have bulges while the last part goes directly from the roof which is lowered. It is clear that this structure makes the car very aerodynamic and allows it to reach high speeds. Led lamps located in sharp headlights are an excellent solution for such a modern design and a characteristic wide grille with a large Mercedes symbol give it a striking appearance. However, this grill is everything than usual. It has led lights all over it! This effect is really incredible. At the rear, we can see the wing, which defines the sporty look. It seems that this concept combines so much characteristics-elegance, attractiveness, sportiness, and eccentricity.
It is noticeable that the interior of the Mercedes-AMG Vision Gran Turismo was inspired by the look and technology of Formula 1. Of course, there will be only two seats for the driver and front passenger. Although it looks quite small, and we know that for the race-car comfort is not in the first place, this cabin (thanks to a wide body) provides plenty of space. Its controls are quite reduced and located on the glass surface. As a necessary addition, there is a head-up display that provides useful information without too much interference. When it comes to color, black will be the basis, but there is a possibility of combination with some other garish color such as red or orange.
Mercedes AMG Vision Gran Turismo – What Engine will Fit?
The new Mercedes AMG Vision Gran Turismo need to have a very powerful engine that would justify its strong and sporty look. It will be a 5.5-liter twin turbo V8 unit that will produce a whopping 577 hp and 590 lb / ft. Reduced weight (due to the use of aluminum) will enable quick and easy movement. It is speculated that the speed of 0 to 60 mph could be reached in less than 4 seconds. Top speed is limited to 200 mph.
Mercedes AMG Vision Gran Turismo – Concept or True?
We still cannot say that Mercedes AMG Vision Gran Turismo will definitely go on production although we all hope for that. However, there are some rumors that only 5 copies will be produced and most likely all be sold in Hollywood. When it comes to the price, it would probably be around a million dollars or even more.
