There is not other way to describe the Vision Gran Turismo project as awesome. So as we ring in the new year with high hopes for more automotive goodness, we leave 2013 with what is yet another teaser of one of the concepts that will make up the Vision Gran Turismo lineup for Gran Turismo 6.
This one comes by way of Honda , who if you didn’t know, has a pretty unique-looking concept on its hands. It’s far from what we’ve seen from other brands, but not all too radical to think that Honda may have gone a tad too far with its concept.
We do know, or at least come to see from the teaser, that the concept has an odd-looking shape: curved in the front and boxy at the back. The windshield is noticeably lacking in size; if you can even notice it at all. And the lights are slit-like, almost like there’s some kind of angry look coming out of it.
And it’s roofless, which seems to have been outed in advance, with what looks like a mid-engine configuration for good measure.
That’s as far as what we can tell about Honda’s Vision Gran Turismo Concept. Maybe there’s more to it than what we’re seeing. But from the looks of things, this concept teaser is susceptible to numerous interpretations depending on what you’re looking at.

The BMW concept features the same aggressive design language as that of the Mercedes concept. It’s not as outlandish, but it’s definitely up there, thanks in large part to a 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.
