The BMW Vision Gran Turismo Concept was the first of Polyphony Digital’s Vision Gran Turismo concepts to be unveiled. Featuring a design that resembles the i8, the BMW Vision Gran Turismo Concept ushered in a new era of awesomeness from Gran Turismo, something we’re afraid Forza Motorsport is going to be left behind.
The dynamic sports coupé’s combination of BMW’s unmistakable racing genes with the design freedom that you can have on a virtual car has given birth to a concept that goes beyond even our already bloated expectations.
After the unveiling of the BMW Vision Gran Turismo, it was BMW’s biggest rival, Mercedes, who followed suit with the unveiling of its own Gran Turismo-exclusive concept at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show.
The concept, which is called the Mercedes Vision Gran Turismo Concept, features an aggressive design language, with elements inspired by the 1952 300 SL race car and an interior with F1 elements. It also gets a powerful AMG engine and an exhaust system with eight end pipes.
