Joining in on the teaser fun is Volkswagen with a preview of its Vision Gran Turismo Concept . And if we’re into picking among the best of what we’ve seen, it’s hard to go against what looks like a pretty sick roadster that actually bears resemblance to one of Volkswagen’s production models, specifically the Scirocco .
This is what the creative forces at Volkswagen thought of when they were asked to build a concept for the video game franchise. It’s not that the car looks really good; it’s that it looks exceptionally good, one we hope Volkswagen decides to build as an actual production car in the future.
It retains most of the essential characteristics of the brand’s resident hatch and wraps it up in a sportier package, one that features a dramatically low windshield, a swooping front end, new headlights, and lest we forget, the sickest set of wheels we’ve seen among all the Vision Gran Turismo Concept teasers that have come out.
It’s a dynamic concept that doesn’t dive too much into the extreme like the other concepts. Sort of like saying, "Hey, VW! You got plans of building a production run of this bad boy soon?"

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.
Mercedes built the Vision Gran Turismo as a concept car specially developed for Gran Turismo 6. It was unveiled at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show and apparently it created quite a buzz in the automotive world.
