Whenever Lamborghini releases a new car, even a concept, it would create a buzz around the globe. In a latest development, the Italian Super car makers presented the V12 Vision GT, a concept derived for Playstation’s ultimate racing simulator, the Gran Turismo. This concept has been introduced for the 2019 Gran Turismo Championships in Monte Carlo,
From the images, the V12 Vision GT looks a lot like a Batmobile. But, it’s much more…
Made for the PS4 Gran Turismo Sport, available from second quarter 2020, the Vision GT is a virtual vision concept brought to life by Lamborghini for the GT championship in the Principality. The V12 Vision GT is produced by Lamborghini Centro Stile in Sant’Agata Bolognese. It is a single seater, which in its virtual form uses the powertrain from the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37.
The design of this hypercar concept builds on Lamborghini design DNA, expanding the potential of the design language in a very futuristic way. Focused on the single center line, the iconic silhouette of all Lamborghini models, it emphasizes a single seater layout conceived for a racing game where a passenger is not needed.
The concept car’s powerful overall design is dedicated to sophisticated aerodynamics. A large wing housing a significant Y-taillight dominates the rear, as well as the front. All elements are designed as high performance surfaces, integrating design and aerodynamics. The main body is disconnected from the fenders, and the hexagon-inspired theme in the side windows is inspired by the ‘68 Lamborghini Marzal.
Moving inside, the cockpit resembles that of a jet fighter. The main driving controls are located within the futuristic steering wheel and all driver information is projected virtually in front of the driver.
The Vision GT is nonetheless a head-turner and offers the best driving experience although in a virtual world. It does mirror Lamborghini’s push on future technologies, particularly in the arena of lightweight materials and hybridization.
